KAAMP Ading interviews started this week. If you’re an ading, and you haven’t signed up for an interview, please do it ASAP. Don’t forget to pay your general membership fee ($20) before your interview. Payments can be made in cash or check (made out to Akbayan SJSU) at the table! This Thursday, was the New Ading Mixer which was mandatory for adings to attend. Adings mingled. Friendships were made. Check out the Flickr.
KAAMP Revealing is October 2nd, so save the date!
The first general workshop of the school year happened on Thursday as well. It was hosted by Kristine, Jerico, & Bernice (above). The workshop was about Taglish and Baybayin. Taglish is a mixture betweeen Tagalog and English while Baybayin is the ancient Filipino script.
Taglish Example: “Anak, did you ligo yet? You’re baho na!”
Translation: “My child, did you shower yet? You stink!”
Below is a chart from Ugat Clothing for Baybayin and a video on a song called ABAKADA by FLORANTE. The song goes along with the alphabet and it’ll help you remember it! The song starts at 2:03.
