Free Mandarin Lessons @ Hotel Supreme Start Anew

The Baguio Filipino-Cantonese Association (BFCA) resumes its free classes for the third batch of basic Mandarin Chinese (Putonghua) learners on 01 May 2010 from 1:30-3:30 pm at Hotel Supreme.  


The course includes pronunciation/phonetics, numbers, meeting people, general information, and simple sentence construction. This time, Putonghua laoshi (teachers) Atty. Cristeta Leung and Mrs. Erlinda Lam Loma-ang will be assisted by some of the survivors of the first two batches.  


The new assistant teachers are mostly Igorots some of whom took part in this year's Chinese New Year celebration and are gearing up for a special presentation during the Moon Festival this September.  They have, in the past few months, been honing their linguistic skills during Saturday afternoon sessions in the same venue.  Their advanced course in conversational Chinese cover more than 20 lessons on directions, time, mailing, travel, shopping, food and drink, medical care, among others.


For enrollment and inquiries, text or call Atty. Leung at 09175902809 or send emails to liang1027@yahoo.com.

"yJaton ji Umili" Charity Concert Raises 40k

The charity concert  for kidney patient Sheriff Thomas Dannang yielded about PhP 40,000.00which  was promptly turned over by YoungKaPA Vice President Bernadette Balway to Frolaine Dannang, daughter of the beneficiary.


The concert, appropriately titled Y–Jaton Ji Umili (roughly, “a community offering”),  was held on March 06, 2010 at the new site of Le Fondue along Legarda Road. Starting at 7pm and lasting until  the wee hours of the next day, it saw the outpouring of support by over 300 individuals and groups composed of students, folk, rock and country singers, SWAT police officers, local officials, among others.
