  hin yam (flower picking)

 

Myanmar

Some boys in a pond in Inwa, collecting the flowers of an aquatic plant which is locally known as hin yam.

 

The white cup-shaped flowers (fig.) are picked selectively by wading slowly through the water and are prepared or sold to be used in Burmese cuisine.
