I started this blog posting stuff in English (my second language since I come from the Philippines, Filipino is my primary) for the use of reaching across the globe, and right now I’m thinking of publishing more of my poems and short stories translated in Filipino. I decided I want to hone my writing skills not only through the English language but also, and especially, through the language I grew up speaking. By doing so I wouldn’t feel the guilt of abandoning my culture and country when I am honestly more capable of sharing insights with my local speaking voice.
So, from now on I will be posting stuff in Filipino too. I hope you don’t mind. 🙂
