      Mais is also corn in Bisaya/Tagalog language in the Philippines. You captured it naturally, and I love it!

      Great photograph! I am the admin of a World Bank blog that covers East Asia. Thought you'd be interested to know that we used this picture in a post about the 30-year anniversary of China's reform.
