Baybayin, A Way of Writing in Our Own Script

Written By J.P. Sakuragi on Friday, September 2, 2011 | Friday, September 02, 2011



I'm always amazed with the idea of learning a new language and a creative way of expressing oneself. In fact, there is a great deal of admiration that I have for the Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Arab, Thai, and Indian scripts. It is unfortunate that we have "forgotten" they we do it on our own written language in the Baybayin (aka Alibata) script.

The good thing is that there are people who have reintroduced it to people like you and me - seeking our cultural identity. The entry of foreign elements into our culture has slowly but surely eroded some aspects of our past. In an effort to be reacquainted with our past, I have decided to learn a little bit of our own way of writing. Perhaps, I may use it in my blog itself but I'm going to know every facet of it for now.
