Manila Workshops: The Art of Storytelling by Kuya Bodjie

Are you one of those kids who watched Batibot in the 90's? If you were, who or what was your favorite segment or "kuya" or "ate" there? Well, mine's Kuya Bodjie and I remember anticipating his storytime during the show.  It was two or three years ago that I learned that he actually does Storytelling workshops and I was so eager to go. For several years now I have yet to have joined his workshop. Sadly, I always have other commitments in his scheduled workshop. So sad. But I know soon I'll be able to join one too.

You may wonder why I love him so, well, aside from the Batibot show, I also got to watch him in his guesting in The Ryzza Mae Show. He told a story to Ryzza about a Lion and she was that scared just by the story told by Kuya Bodjie. I know he is THAT GOOD and I bet I'll learn a lot from him which I can share with my toddler, Enzo. It is also because as I am pursuing my career in Preschool Teaching, learning from the best storyteller will really benefit me.

But anyway, enough of my sadness, I am positive that I'll be in his workshop soon too. Great news for you because Kuya Bodjie will have his workshop this Friday care of Manila Workshops.
