3rd Igorot Cordillera BIMAAK Europe (ICBE) Consultation
5-8 May 2005
by Judith Balangyao
warm greetings to each and everyone of you from Ireland...I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you and a big salute to BIBAK-Switzerland for such a successful consultation...I know that others have expressed their appreciations and gratitudes to the group the minute they land in their homes....but of course there's always the so called late bangers and we're one of them :-)
BIBAK-Ireland is quite busy at the moment in preparation of our 2nd Filipino Day which will be on the 12th of June...and BIBAK pres. Dave Aragones is the overall chairman of the activity. And yesterday, our organization here meet up as our first general meeting and it was our chance to give our announcement about us being the next host of the 4th ICBE....of course at first myself and Jane had talked about how grateful we are to be there, learn a lot of new things and having fun at the same time (permi ti apal da :-) esp. when they saw the pictures....and from that when we say about the good news, positive responses had outnumbered those 2 or 3 people with negative outlook...whom we understand of course as not everyone thinks in the same way....
Although we have said it already during the endorsement back in Switzerland, we want to shout it loud again that BIBAK-Ireland is happy to host the 4th ICBE (I'm talking now with the consensus of our organization)...
have a nice day everyone (^-^)
