Hope springs !
Yea, a self-indulgent post. That's 'me and me', looking so Chinese-ee :) at a Chinese Garden where else. :D
New Year's Eve and New Year's Day are celebrated here in Singapore not much different from ours, a time of reunion and thanksgiving. The celebration is traditionally highlighted with a religious ceremony given in honor of Heaven and Earth, the gods of the household and the family ancestors. And so, while I am no party girl and could never be bothered staying out late, I have been off for a bit of Chinese New Year dinner here and there. And looks like it's not over as yet.
Glad for some alone time at last, I checked out our Bayanihan books google groups and I was just delighted at the progress you/we guys are making. Things are still a bit overwhelming for newbies :D, and we are all wondering how we can come in to give a hand.
You can check out Greg Moreno's site for more updates. This idea is fast catching up and getting the support it needs from Filipinos in PI and abroad. I am tentative as yet on how to come in with support as I am not an educator, but as Tesha Adaon said, the group needs all the help it can get -- editing, proofreading, events promoting, lay out and design, the possibilities are so inspiring. I myself am still figuring out ways to put in support more solidly from where I am based. Perhaps, my friends (oh you are all over the planet, smiles) can help me out. You too can do something. Tesha and Greg have been amazing inspiration, they have buckled down to work here, based on Learning Competencies formulated by Dep Ed. With such dedication, I do not doubt that this project will meet with success once we as a group, is able to gain the momentum and get a grip on things as days roll by.
