It was a step towards greatness. On Aug. 10, 2013, the Philippines rejoined the ranks of the world’s basketball elite, an achievement that resonated in a nation addicted to basketball. To do so, the team, known as Gilas Pilipinas, had to overcome the team that had emerged as its nemesis in international play through the years: Korea. Bucking the odds and in front of a frenzied home crowd, Gilas did just that, winning 86-79, ensuring the team of at least a second place finish and one of three slots to the basketball World Cup in Spain in 2014.

INTO THE FOLD: Tejido surrounded by his cardboard creations (PDI Photo/Arnold Almacen)

Jomike Tejido is essentially a transformer. He was enthralled by the paradox of one object twisting and turning until it becomes a totally different object. It was an obsession that changed him.

The Filbar’s Adventure Continues

Like many word-loving members of my generation, I learned to love reading, thanks to Filbar’s. Back in grade school, a generous and enabling schoolmate would list the titles of the comic books we wanted and then, once a week, swing by the Filbar’s store on New York Street in Cubao to score them.

MORE PUN IN THE PHILIPPINES: Three books on the Pinoy’s facility for wordplay

Born of everyday ingenuity and perhaps a hint of either madness or boredom, Filipino signs are an art form by themselves. The signs are also a balancing act between being smart or knowledgeable, and being pilosopo (smart alecky).

For someone who traffics heavily in the realm of love lives, Marcelo Santos III rues the fact that he doesn’t have much of one. The 22-year-old first-time novelist and online video sensation says he doesn’t have time for romance, no matter that his surprise best-seller is titled “Para sa Hopeless Romantic.”

By

Born in Manila, raised in Indonesia and educated in the United States, this 33-year-old has achieved what many comic book artists consider to be the dream of a lifetime: being published internationally.

SABIDO: What started out as a blog about her life became a blog about books (PDI Photo/Alanah Torralba)

Fittingly enough for someone who willingly surrounds herself with stories from childhood, Tarie Sabido’s nickname is accompanied by a quirky tale of its own. The blogger and teacher’s real name is Roberta Marie Sabido: her nickname takes the “ta” from Roberta and melds it with the “rie” from Marie, leading to Tarie. Then again, there’s [...]

Reading a Revolution

(ROMY HOMILLADA)

The first and most important thing you need to know about Anthony De Luna is that he’s not here to destroy your books. On the contrary, he loves old-fashioned ink-and-paper books.

MEETING EVERY STORY'S DEMANDS: Magnuson and his books (Inquirer Photo/Arnold Almacen)

“Golly jeepers” is Robert Magnuson’s favorite expression. It’s an endearingly anachronistic utterance straight out of a Saturday morning cartoon. But though the award-winning writer/illustrator grew up with a steady dose of those cartoons, he is no two-dimensional figure.
