Kung Hei Fat Choi!


January 28, 2017 was the declared Chinese New Year of this year and we in Project Pearls had a unique style on celebrating this very special day for our Chinese friends the artful way!

The morning started with the usual feeding routine and was followed by the favorite part of our kids- the Brain Booster!

Since today we celebrate the Chinese New Year, we had some learning about their language. Ate Christine, our Brain Booster coordinator taught the kids how to count using the Mandarin language. She even let the kids trace and write these numbers on a paper.

We felt that while learning new things again for this day, the kids enjoyed their lessons as well. Some of them were even reciting the foreign speaking numbers to their seats!

After the short yet fun and enjoyable teachings, the kids then created colorful Chinese paper lanterns! Their creativity and fun engagement in Arts and Crafts were boosted once again!

“Kung Hei Fat Choi!”

Some of the kids greeted each other while doing their own Chinese lanterns. Smiles were on their faces as if they were so happy with this day’s celebration.



Thank you so much to our sponsor for this day, UPLB Sigma Alpha Nu Sorority.

Being lucky in life depends on our hearts. As long as we are happy sharing the love with others then we are more than fortunate enough.


May the luckiness of this year will be with us all!
