Bob Ong’s “SI”

bob ong si

Another well written story by Bob Ong.

I don’t want to spoil the fun for the people who haven’t read the book, but all I can say is, there a trick on reading the book.

For those who had the chance to read the previous works of Bob Ong, he always have some sort of experiment or you can say wild ideas in each of his works. A feature that can entertain his readers or somewhat annoys them in the process of reading, but if you’re an avid fan of Bob Ong, I guess you’ll let this one pass or maybe it will entertain you (and annoys you in some reasons.)

The book is all about love, all forms of love…as Bob Ong said in the video below :

“Ang SI ay kuwento ng pag-ibig, hindi romansa; at pagmamahal, hindi relasyon. Tungkol ito sa kakayanan, pagkakataon, pananagutan at karapatan natin lahat na magmahal.”

Here’s the full  video made by the man himself.. this will answer most of the questions asked by the fans.

For those who have the book, enjoy the new work of Bob Ong, and for those who don’t have a copy, get it on your favorite bookstores. (I bought a copy for 400 pesos. sulit pramis!)

“Para sa babaeng kasama kong maligo sa ulan, manood ng bulalakaw at matulog sa tabing dagat.”
