The 2008 Salanga and Alcala Awards

Judging the Salanga Prize for two years in a row made me choose change this year.

I opted to wrestle with Ruben "Totet" De Jesus (PBBY President) and Liza Flores (Ang INK) for the Alcala Prize. This year's winner is none other than Serge Bumatay III. Two in a row for Bumatay since he won the Alcala last year for Jean Patindol's Tight Times.

For more information on the Salanga and the Alcala, visit the PBBY website. It is the 25th National Children's Book Day this year and the grand winners for both awards will be given quite a sum as cash prize.

The Dream of Robert Alejandro

I got this Friendster Bulletin Post from a member of KUTING about Robert Alejandro's call for book donations.

I'm helping set up a children's mini
library in Barangay Luna in Isabela.

I heard the children have NEVER seen a
children's book!
- BUT they have a healthy daily dose of
noontime shows and telenovelas :-(

From this dream of a mini library, I'd
like the children to have a love and
affinity for books which will last a

Please message me here / email if you
have spare children's books I can send
to Isabela.

I will post pictures of the library (and
the kids) when the library is set up.

Please feel free to pass this message along.

Thank you very much!


Robert (Alejandro)

Though the show has ceased air time, Alejandro still dreams of doing something for the children in Isabela. If you're from up there, pitch in some books for the children's library. A good reading reading habit begins with access to books.
