Corner View : September

Whoo hoo for Corner View – it’s back!!!  I hope you all had a wonderful summer.

click on the premise to review what  Corner View is about.

And so without further ado here is this week’s theme:

SEPTEMBER

Here in Thailand there is something on every month.  This month there is the “Bathing Buddha Ceremony” and the Swan Boat Races.

But for me this is always special month.  No matter where I am and how far away I am from my home country – which would be Papua New Guinea it is on this day that we gained our Independence.

So we celebrate the  Independence of our young country.

I know for a fact that schools back at home have had special assemblies where the children are encouraged to dress in their traditional costumes and perform dances or songs for their parents.  I love those assemblies and I remember them well.

Well my children don’t have have assemblies to participate in but  thankfully they do have International Day at their school and so that is the time when I get to talk to them about their home country and when they get to dress up.

Well we don’t have a very big PNG community here in Bangkok so as a family we just remember, reflect and hope that  our young country will continue to move forward.

Hepi  Independence ol wantok blo mi!! 

(translation – Happy Independence to all my friends from PNG).

I’m looking forward to checking  out September happenings around the world.
