Everything about Filipino Entertainment
Although it’s already late, here where I live, your birthday was just the beginning.
I have been extremely busy these past few weeks because of NaNoWriMo and MMO gaming, however I tried all I can keep in touch with you, your whereabouts, and your happenings on FB, so at least I know I’m not falling behind. You’ve come a long way— a very long way— through your younger days to your teenage years. Now at eighteen, you are about to embark on a brand-new journey and a new stage in your life. Since the PBB Days, the paths and days ahead had always shined for you, and even up to now, you always continued to shine.
I’ve been thinking on what I can give you for my birthday present but because of real life among other things, I haven’t had the chance to figure out what I should really give you for that special day and I feel embarrassed because you are turning in to the important age of eighteen. So instead, I decided to write to you instead here on my blog. After all, it was how we first met/encountered each other, so what would be a good way… Continue reading

October 08, 2011 – In my hometown of Union City earlier today, I attended my very first Balagtasan Debate forum with my parents. The event was hosted by the City Council of Union City and the San Francisco Bay Area Filipino Community, featuring young Filipino-American spoken word poets on the first event and three prolific poets who flew all the way to the Philippines to hold a Balagtasan forum to Filipino-Americans familiar with the poetic debating and to those who have never seen or heard of a Balagtasan forum, such as myself. I have attended, watched, and listened to poetry events before during my school days, from watching my former high school’s Forensics Club to even listening to local poetry slam sessions at the neighborhood coffee shops. Today was the first time that I attended a type of poetry event that has solid cultural ties to my ethnic roots.
Balagtasan is a form of poetic debating that was founded in the early 20th Century (around early 1920s) during the American colonization of the Philippines. The term was coined from a prominent Filipino poet of the late 19th Century, Francisco Balagtas (1788-1862), often referred to as the Filipino William Shakespeare. Balagtas was known for his collection of epic poetry, most notably Florante at Laura (Florante and Laura), which was considered Balagtas’ poetic masterpiece. His poems were written in Tagalog, which was crucial to the Filipino linguistic identity during that time because the Filipino language back then was written predominantly in Spanish.Tweet
Still unemployed and barely have any money to buy everyone gifts. Gift cards will have to do I’m afraid. I’m not wealthy after all.
On the other hand, the days from the 24th to the 31st would be seriously crazy around the house. Though everyone dreams of a White Christmas, I’m actually an exception. I’d like to stay as warm as I can while spending these days with the family, especially with relatives whom I haven’t seen for majority of my life so far. It would’ve been wonderful too if one day that we can spend at least one Christmas with the folks in the Philippines. It’s one thing that my parents admitted that they truly miss. It’s also one thing that my brother first experienced with his girlfriend several years ago when his girlfriend’s older brother and his then-fiancee got married there. I have a feeling that bro and gf/fiancee would also want their wedding over there as well. When that happens, that’s probably one huge chance that I can finally go there.
And of course, there’s other reasons why I want to visit the “old country” as well. Many of you already know what that reason may be. :)Tweet
