Sino si Bob Ong?



nah!!! loitering around the mall again..phew!  the only intention is the books of Mr. Bob to buy for my friend (hes craving for my bonnet anyway, so i'd rather give him a book, coz he also also like Bob ong). One of my friend ask me 'WHO THE HELL IS BOB ONG?' so i answered him.. 'wala ka kaila kay Bob Ong?' (bisaya language). I don't know him also. Even a single thing about his life. I just know that hes one behind those books.

Bob Ong or Roberto Ong is the pseudonym of a Filipino contemporary author known for using conversational Filipino to create humorous and reflective depictions of life as a Filipino. The six books he has published thus far have surprised a quarter of a million copies. His published works include: 

ABNKKBSANPLAKO, Stainless longganisa, Bakit Baliktad Magbasa ng libro ang mga Pilipino, Kapitan Sino, Alamat ng Gubat, MAC ART HUR, Ang Paboritong Libro ni Hudas
I've already read 4 of his books,and i haven't read the other yet. Well,  one of Bob Ong's book (Stainless Longganisa) is introduce by my cousin Herman (Hes a unknown writer in his own world) which is the first book i read.  I remember one of the story of this book is how Mr. Bob Ong himself became a writer after quitting hes job. (i don't know his job either) :)

He's first book was ABNKKBSNPLAKO its a text-language style change for the phrase “Aba, nakakabasa na pala ako?!” (JEJEMON!!!!).

Now, what  can i say about Bob Ong?

Bob Ong writes his books in Tagalog (a filipino language).  He writes about real things and real people, everyday experiences, and makes them not only entertaining but somewhat philosophical. Almost everything he has written is about “The System”, more specifically, the tragically flawed set of values that makes us Filipino.  :)
