|Apr-26-17|| ||spawn2: If GM Torre wins his last game, there is a big possibility that he will land in the top 20.|

|May-23-17|| ||visayanbraindoctor: Not related to chess. To teachers teaching mother language in Western Visayas, this Ilonggo syllabus - grammar book might prove useful and helpful to you.|
|May-23-17|| ||Nonnus: Who's that girl? She's pretty.|
|May-23-17|| ||visayanbraindoctor: <Nonnus: Who's that girl? She's pretty.> |
Thank you for the compliment. She's my niece. I wrote the syllabus. It's purpose is to give a speaking knowledge of Ilonggo and to explain its grammatical rules for teachers and non-Ilonggos, especially now that mother language is being used in early elementary grades in Western Visayas. We're planning to make syllabuses for more Philippine languages. (If I have the time and energy.)
