yung mga ganitong libro yung tipo ng mga babasahing iniiwan akong iniisip na hindi na rin masama. hindi na rin masamang magbigay. hindi masamang sumubok. hindi na rin masama kahit malungkot. na minsan mapait sa dulo. kasi minsan hindi na rin masama yung ang tamis ng simula. na sa gitna'y may fireworks. kahit panandalian lang yung kislap, hindi na rin masama. yung ganitong mga tula yung hindi ko mapigilang basahin ng ulit-ulit hindi dahil sa mga salita. hindi dahil sa pagbuhol-buhol ng bawat tala ...more

Mahusay ang mga taga-Words Anonymous.
Mostly, though, mapanakit sila.

Pero sobrang hinahangaan ko ang pagmamahal nila sa sining ng tula, at sana alam nila na ilang beses kong kinailangang huminto sa pagbabasa para lang yakapin 'yung libro.

My personal favorites:

Picked this up at the airport, excited to read something in Tagalog for once. I found some pieces to be entertaining, a few moving, but overall, I found most to be a handful of beautiful words that are easily forgettable.

The book still makes for a pleasurable read while passing time, but it doesn't have that aftertaste that haunts you long after you've finished reading.
This book is a discovery of native talent. I haven't read much books written by fellow Filipinos, so this compilation of poetry and pieces was a refreshing read.

Confession: I expected that this book would be mostly about love. I was kinda dreading it. I was so used to reading the "I'm a hard person to love" narrative, the "don't date the girl/guy who does this and that" etc. that I really hoped this book wasn't all about that. I wanted fresh thoughts that didn't entirely tackle love, and if they

There were poems in this collection that just hit me. Hard. Especially the pieces about mental illnesses.

Inaamin ko binili ko 'tong libro dahil kay Juan Miguel. Nabaliw na kasi ako sa kanya. Nabaliw na rin kasi ako sa mga piyesa niya. Pero ang pagmamahal ko sa spoken word poetry ay mas lumala pa nang mabasa ko ang sulat ng iba pa niyang kilala.

Para sa akin, dalawa lang naman ang makikita mo sa librong ito.

1. Puso at damdamin
2. Kasarinlan

Puso at damdamin ang pinag-ugatan ng mga ito. Malalim ang naging hugot na nagbunga ng mga magandang piyesa. (At ibig-sabihin ng hugot ay hindi lamang romansa.) Naka

I have a penchant for collection of poems, short stories, etc as you can feel the pieces were borne out of pure emotion, #feels. Tuwing Ikatlong Sabado is a voice of the struggling millenials. Hugot sa social issues, hugot sa pag-ibig. Nice read overall, but the reading experience could still be improved by arranging the stories per emotional intensity or angst (instead of by author), such that at some part you'd recognize a climax* -- i have 4 nominations for this (very feminine tho): Dulo't Si ...more

I don't usually buy compilations of poems - this is my first one. And I could say I have no regrets in buying it. This is the book I'd bring to an overnight with friends and let them borrow it, just because I know they will like it as well and it's an easy read (since it's just a poem, longest na ang 2 pages).

It gave me thoughts to ponder about, minsan kahit 'di ko pa gusto - just because the message really BOTHERED me. Inunti-unti ko pa ang pagbasa, one to three poem per night, kasi na i-stres

Again, it is better to hear it first. Unlike poems, spoken words are weak when not spoken. Uhmm hence the name. Anyway, I liked two entries: Isang Pagsusuri sa Tipo ng Taong Hindi Minamahal by M. Manese and The Echo by Trevor Viloria.

Napakahusay ng mga tula at tuluyang pinagsama-sama sa aklat na ito. Mabisa ang pagkakagamit sa mga salita. Hindi puro ukol sa pag-ibig ang tema ng mga piyesa na nakalimbag, tumatalakay din ang ilan dito sa mga napapanahong isyu, sosyal man o politikal.

It can break you really hard!!!

If you are trying some fresh from young writers of poetry you should try this one. It envelops most specially everyday crisis, love -bittersweet-, LGBT rights, family, that you can relate as an individual.

Now that I’ve been to various shows of Words Anonymous (WA), I tend to imagine the poems in Tuwing Ikatlong Sabado being performed by their respective writers.

Through this book, the WA members trace back their roots to their so-called home. While some of the pieces are relatively new, this collection comes across as a tribute to their first stage as a group, the Sev’s café. It brings to mind the nights my friends and I would visit this unassuming little café where WA would bare their souls to a

A collection of poems that are so good when you see it performed but breaks your silently when you read it by yourself. Makes you want to write more poetry and adore poets.

Matagal ko na natapos ang libro na ito at hindi ko na matandaan kung kailan ko natapos ito pero alam kong October lang tapos ko na basahin. Ngayon ko lang din kasi nakita sa goodreads 'yung book niya. MABUHAY KAYO!!! Iyan ang masasabi ko sainyo, sa husay ninyo gumawa at magpahayag ng sarili niyong damdamin. Napakagaganda ng nilalaman at talagang tatamaan ka sa bawat salitang iyong mababasa. Sana magkaroon ulit ng third book kasi sobrang nakaka-inspired kayo. HANDS DOWN TO THE TEAM!!!!

I could hear the writers performing the pieces inside my head and I think that's amazing. I love Words Anonymous and spoken word poetry in my mother tongue. This book broke my heart, made smile, made me laugh, and ultimately made me feel so many emotions all at once I cannot find ways to articulate them perfectly.

I've seen these group of people perform. From the walls of Sev's Cafe, their home, to stages with more crowd than ever. I've always been a fan of spoken word poetry. And it makes me so happy that there are people who are doing this locally, because there is so much content that the world has yet to see. Words are so beautiful, amazing, and remarkable.

I always wanted to watch the shows of Words Anonymous (WA), but due to my hectic schedule I can’t. However, through this book I feel I was transported during their live shows.
Their words just hit me. There are times that I stopped reading it for a moment because my heart & mind can’t handle the impact of their works.
Another book like this please!! :D
