mayroong mini review tungkol sa libro ko doon sa latest sunday inquirer magazine. sinulat ito ni ruel de vera. hindi ko siya kamag-anak pero may sinabi siya na katumbas sa pagkain ng tatlumpung kilong haligi ng talangka dahil nakakataba ito ng puso.
The view from any corner
HE isn’t just one of the most opinionated bloggers out there. Nicanor “Batjay” David, Jr. is also one of the best. This instrument engineer-turned-OFW (notably also the brother of Pinoy Rock icon Howlin’ Dave) has been writing his acerbic and insightful column on everything from holidays to national identity in his trademark everyman English and Filipino (and sometimes both at the same time) with wit and oh-it-hurts humor. For your own good, check them out at http://kwentongtambay.nicanordavid.com.
Sometimes profane, often poignant, but always powerful, David’s columns are now in hard copy and on bookshelves in “Kwentong Tambay: Mga Kwento ng Isang Sira-ulong Overseas Filipino Worker” (PSICOM Publishing, P120). The Q&As alone are worth the retail price. But go further and check out his take on why Pinoys go abroad, and Unkyel Batjay explains it all for you. “Kwentong Tambay” really is about the man who watches the world go by yet misses absolutely nothing. Just read a few pages and find out why this book is worth taking home with you, wherever you are in the world.

maraming salamat ruel. sabi ng mommy ko, aampunin ka raw niya. sabi naman ng asawa ko, punta ka raw sa bahay namin at ipagluluto ka niya ng kanyang world famous pork adobo. binasa nga namin ang sunday inquirer magazine kahapon sa tagaytay during our family christmas party kaya naging bida tuloy ako and once again: i almost shit in my pants. salamat. salamat.
