of me in. :)
the 'leader' did a quick check of where the kids were from, and when they called out for those who came from the philippines, she raised her hand up without hesitation. :) funny how these little things make me teary. (damned hormones).
they found out about thousand year-old shipwrecks, sunken treasures, southeast asia's hindu-buddhist kingdoms, shiva dance, different types of kris and how all of them have odd-numbered curves, a martial art called silat, indian textile patterns, the tree of life (ygdrassil in indian textile), how the 5-clawed dragon can only be worn by the emperor during the zhou dynasty, mughal india's beautiful architecture, and taj mahal's enduring testament to love.
roo specifically requested for a photo with the princess. :)
showing off her 'wayang kulit' puppets (which are now dead and torn after red went through them).found acm to be my favorite of the set of museums we visited for the school holidays. a fun afternoon with lots of new learnings and a little bit more understanding on our heritage, and cultural influences.
