Just received the following email from my fellow Ako Ay Pilipino teammates:
    Ako ay Pilipino, together with well-loved Pinoy bands clasp hands to bring inspiration through music, poetry, and art that kindle Filipino pride, nationalism, and radical hope on February 2, 2010, 7:00 p.m. at 6UG Pearl Drive, Ortigas Center Pasig City.

    The theme will be “‘Mahal Mo Ba Ako?’ ~ Pilipinas,” a Valentine’s celebration that is “makabayan-style.” Music artists like Salamin, Hilera, Mayonnaise and Gloc 9 will rev up the place with music that rouses patriotism, hope, and call to action. In between sets, there will be short and crisp previews of what is inside the book “Ako ay Pilipino: Noon at Ngayon” and inspirational challenges from prominent personalities.

    The recently published coffee-table book, “Ako ay Pilipino Noon at Ngayon” has been many times praised by its critics (including 700 Club Asia) for conveying a timely message of “why I should be proud of my Identity and Destiny as a Filipino,” all done employing cutting edge design and creative non-conventional writing style. The book will soon be released through leading bookstores nationwide.

    Enlarged sample spreads from the book will be displayed on huge walls at the concert’s hall. There will also be provision of freedom boards to record the participants’ messages for the nation.

    Visit www.akoaypilipinongayon.com or contact Vanessa Vitrano through 0922.832.80.71 or vanessa.vitrano@gmail.com to avail concert tickets at P250/each.
    That’s February 2, 2010, 7:00 p.m. @ 6UG Pearl Drive, Ortigas Center Pasig City. See you there?!

She is a kingdom kid, who looks forward to being a writer and storyteller even when she reaches heaven. She is passionate about the unreached, about those who have yet to know the Love she found in the arms of the Almighty. She is intrigued by the world and its people, who day by day, continue to convince her that God is the greatest Storyteller of all.

Good to hear the project went well, and it feels nice to have been a part of it (in my own little, as in little, way). Sayang may pasok kami nyang Feb 2, it's a busy week at the office….


Maybe I shouldn't repeat comments? Hehehe…
