Kakai Bautista Farewell To Heartbreak with Witty New Book Titled “LA NA BYE”

7:41:00 AM

Singer-actress Kakai Bautista turns her misfortunes on love into an amusing collection of poetry, anecdotes, and quotes in her first book “La Na Bye,” published under ABS-CBN Books.

Formally launched at the Kapamilya Books Blowout weekend fair held at the Ayala Malls Manila Bay, “La Na Bye” is a timely nod to the current trend of individuals communicating their emotional pain online through ingenious clap backs and clever but hard-hitting responses to heartbreaks more commonly known as “hugot.”

Befittingly, the interesting new read bares the “Dental Diva’s” passionate yet quirky insights on romance (and lack thereof) through extensive, relatable verses, and “hugot” one-liners. It is divided into three parts, consisting of her poems for those too wishful in love, her compositions on why people love the ones who don’t deserve it, and her verses for the “boys who didn’t love me before.”


The new author also touches upon subjects that some people may unfortunately be well-acquainted with, such as “ghosting,” break-ups, and unrequited love.

Kakai is now one of the diverse authors under ABS-CBN Books, the publishing arm of the country’s leading media and entertainment company, ABS-CBN, which continues to bring the Kapamilya experience in print with its extensive fiction, nonfiction, movie-based, self-help, and motivational reads.

Laugh your way past a heartbreak with Kakai’s “La Na Bye” book, available online and in leading bookstores and newsstands for only P225. For updates, follow @abscbnpr on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram or visit www.abs-cbn.com/newsroom.

The Kris of Justice

10:24:00 PM
Setting aside entertainment and foods, here's something to help an old classmate. Also this will be part of this blog's peace advocacy between Filipino Muslim and Christian. A series of understanding and learning.

Last July 23, 2011 they launched the book entitled "Kris of Justice" a novel written by Abdel Karim C. Tillah, a Filipino Muslim descendant of the Royal House of Tawi-Tawi.

Here are some excerpts from the Press Release

... “To come up with a peaceful and lasting solution to the never ending war between the Armed Forces of the Philippines and the Muslim rebels in Mindanao, we must first know the root cause of the conflict.” This was the statement issued by the the author Abdel Karim Cristobal Tillah during the launch of his novel last Saturday, July 23 at the UP School of Economics Auditorium. In partnership with the National Interfaith Consultative Committee (NICCOM) and the UP Institute of Islamic Studies, the launch was hosted by Mr. Chito Villegas. KRIS OF JUSTICE: The Story of the Greatest Race of Warriors the Modern World Never Knew, written by Abdel Tillah is the first novel that tries to explore the root causes of the ages-old conflict between Muslims and Christians in Mindanao. “How can you expect the Philippine government to come up with a just solution to the problem when the majority of Filipinos and even the members of the govt. peace panel don’t know much about the history of Mindanao and the root causes of the conflict?”, the author, a Filipino Muslim descendant of the Royal House of Tawi-Tawi, born to a Muslim father and a Christian mother, said...

...“The Kris of Justice is the first novel that aims to educate Filipinos in an entertaining way on the glorious history of the Moros. It is presented in a concise, comic-book, graphic novel, or movie-script style that can be easily absorbed by a generation of Filipinos not used to reading, but used to watching TV and reading Facebook, Twitter and comic books,” Mr. Larry Henares writes.

“The dramatic flow of narration along the rhythm of the history of the Muslim armed struggle and the deep longing for peace and national unity adds a meaningful value to the Filipino Muslim literature as part of national heritage,” Prof. Samuel Tan adds.

The novel is the result of the author’s extensive studies on the story and history of the Muslims in the Philippines and his experience and insights into the practice of both Islam and Christianity. Abdel was exposed to interfaith activities at an early age, since his father is a founding member of the first interfaith committee established in the Philippines {and probably the first in the world) in 1973. In 1992, Abdel Tillah composed an interfaith song entitled “God of Abraham.” This song is contained in the CD that is included with the book.

In his review of the book, Mr. Boyette San Diego, writer and a top executive of a printing corporation, narrates, “I think the journey away from simplistic portrayals of Islam and the Mindanao conflict and stereotypes begins in Chapter 9 – “Islam, the Light of the Dark Ages.” There’s so much fascinating information in the chapter – e.g., advances in science; that the first university in the world was founded by a Muslim, and a woman at that; the premium Muslims give to education, etc. – that will stimulate study and understanding and prevent rushes to judgment… The putting in context of the Muslim situation continues and is deepened in Chapter 10, “Hidden History” and Chapter 12,“More Hidden History,” which weaves superb research and scholarship into the historical origins of the current state of affairs in Mindanao. The idea of colonialism and its motivations and tactics (such as divide and rule) are fleshed out and illuminated with historical examples.”

The publication is a very interesting and engaging reading material that will help the readers, especially the youth to have a better understanding and appreciation of the Muslim culture. It hopes to foster solidarity among the present and succeeding generations of Muslims and Christians, not only in the Philippines but also in other countries. The author strongly believes that only by bringing out the truth, can there be genuine understanding between peoples of two faiths resulting in better Christian-Muslim relations, peace in Mindanao and ultimately, lasting peace for the Philippines and the whole world...
