Bringing the Rice First in the New House

Filipinos are used to include rice in their meals. It is actually the main food that fills their stomach during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A full stomach may represent wealth or prosperity in some cases because people can be abundant in foods if they have resources. If people in the Philippines will transfer or move to another house, they have the belief that the rice, which is the primary reason why people are satisfied with their meals, should be brought first inside to invite abundance and prosperity in the family. After the owners bring in the rice, other things can already be brought inside.
