Description

Once more, not everyone might understand what is written here, but as it features our culture, why not?
This one is the song "Kasadya Ning Taknaa" written in Baybayin.
The font, which I made myself, is in a sans-serif style [referring to the appearance of sans-serif fonts like arial as opposed to the actual presence or absence of serifs, as Baybayin is a writing system which doesn't use them.)
JANIT-sah, you should be able to read this one if you know the standard baybayin. ^.^

By the way, Kasadya Ning Taknaa is a Bisaya Christmast Carol composed in 1933 by Vicente Rubi and Mario Vestil. Its melody has been adapted for the unrelated Tagalog song "Ang pasko ay sumapit," which, in my opinion, is a bit awkward.
Sadly, little mention has been made of the original composers and most everybody seems to credit Levi Celerio, the person who created the tagalog song using the song's melody.
Is it not a bit unfair?
