Early Birthday Celebration

The niece will turn eight tomorrow.  She wanted to celebrate her day at the beach; however her birthday falls on Monday so we decided to celebrate one day ahead.  She is not expecting for any gifts from us, just to celebrate it at the beach is enough for her.  That is how simple the niece is.  Good thing we live near the beach, we can go easily.  Her wish is our command, so we are at the beach now to celebrate the 8th birthday of my niece Ella.

Anyways, before we go to the beach.  I attended an early mass at the church and I brought Ella with me.  Even if is she still sleepy, she wakes up rubbing her eyes.  At first she doesn’t want to go to church.  But after telling her that she needs to since it is her birthday she stands up and go directly to the bathroom.  I told her to pray to and give thanks to God for the gift of life and for another year of her life.  She did not light any candle yet because it’s not her birthday yet.  Tomorrow she will go to the church again to light a candle and say a little prayer.

Korean Cultural Center

It started with the Korean drama invasion here in the country, many are hooked up and wanted to learn their language and culture.  To others it is a new adventure in life and new learning to add.  Many are interested because of what they have seen in different drama that is aired in the country and some of their songs that is called K-Pop.  In this reason, Korean cultural center is put-up for everybody to learn Korean culture.  Lots of lessons are being conducted for free.  So everyone who is interested is free to come and learn Korean language, cooking, dancing and many more.  All are given to those interested individual.

There is nothing wrong with it as the country has diplomatic relationship with the Korean government.  It is like exchanging of cultures and learning from it.  I just wish the will not lead to comparison between the cultures.  If ever we wanted to learn other culture, let’s not forget our culture because this is how we brought up from our oldies.

If you were to ask, is putting up Korean Cultural Center in the country is a good one?  Or just trying to confuse others between two cultures?  Is this for good or bad?
