The Bayanihan National Folk Dance Company

I watched the gala dinner of the Asean leaders and delegates in Shangri-La Mactan on TV last Sunday. What a fabulous affair. It must have caused millions to organize.

Anyway, what really fascinated me was the presentation of the Bayanihan National Folk Dance Company. I was totally blown away by their whole presentation. They performed the diffirent folk dances of the country. It was so rich and beautiful. Some of the dances there I saw for the first time. How ironic that I call myself a Filipino and yet I'm alien to this aspect of my culture. It made me realize just how rich and beautiful our culture really is and how important it is that we preserve and cherish them.
