Baybayin in everyday life

People often ask me why it’s important to know Baybayin. I get a strange look on their face when I tell the I don’t think it’s really important to know the script. Before a Baybayin fan, I’m a realist 1st. There are far more important things Pinoys in the Philippines should be learning. If your lucky enough to practice Baybayin and want to incorporate your culture in everyday life, try changing your signature to Baybayin.

Below is my drivers license. Turned out well considering the digital pad didn’t output your signature so I can verify the strokes/kudlit (didn’t show) much like the credit card terminals you see at stores. Signing blindly was tough.
