International Day



Today ASOY Claire's school celebrated the International day or what Im used to know a United Nation's day. When I was in elementary school back in my hometown I always join the program everytime my school celebrate the UN day and for those students who can afford or willing to spend will be assigned a country to dress up in the national dress. I remember I once wear the national dress of Puerto Rico, the program includes parade around my village where my school is. I remember also making a flag of the the country you were assigned by your teacher and that will be credited as your second grading period. We made the flag out of Colored papers and band paper and use a bamboo stick for the pole and we wave it during the parade. International Day is one of my favorite programs/activities when I was a kid and even up to now its always been its a very colorful ,lively and educational event.
Today I got a one of a kind experience in my life perhaps...I carry and wave my own beloved Philippines flag! I was asked to participate in the program and to carry my flag with Claire beside me. I got goose bump and very proud while presenting my flag.I got to wear some of our national clothing(kimona&sarong) for the flag ceremony, and I cooked some pancit bihon as well for the international food tasting after the program.
Claire and her class are wearing the national dress of Kenya. All of them look so cute and adorable in their costume! The students did a great job in their own respective presentations. It was a nice program and so glad to be a part of it. Anywhere Im living, I always am proud to be a Filipino....I even keep a small flag at home..Viva Philippines!! as my good friend Steve says.
