In celebration of the Buwan ng Wika 2020, and in support to Sentro Rizal’s promotion of Philippine culture through language, the Philippine Consulate General – Sentro Rizal (SR) Sydney held a “Bigkas Serye” Book Reading Series Project. Three (3) books/stories, entitled Ayoko Po Sana, Tagu-Taguan and Ang Pambihirang Buhok ni Racquel were featured by the Consulate and posted on its Facebook and Sentro Rizal Pages.
