"We don't need to rush. If something's bound to happen, it will happen. In the right time, with the right person and for the best reason."

It's about time I got a hold of this book. It was a long time ago when I first heard about this. I tried to get a copy but couldn't find one in the leading bookstore. I had a lot of more important things to think about so I haven't bothered to look for the book. I almost even forgot about this. Then one day, I went to the bookstore to check a newly released book then suddenly this reddish book appeared in front of my eyes. Well as they say, the best things in life are unexpected. If something is really for you, then it will surely find its way to you. ^^

From the author of  "Parang Kayo Pero Hindi", Noringai came up with another book with a catchy title, "Buti Pa Ang Roma May Bagong Papa". If the former is for people who are into pseudo relationships, the latter is for people who are happily living a life of freedom or bleakly sulking in loneliness. It depends on how they see things.

This book is a collection of essays not only about love but about life as well. It's easy to connect with some topics because most of them are written based on the experience of the writer and she is clever enough to relate simple things that happen in our everyday lives to things which greatly matter in life. This will make you think about where you are in your life at the moment. This will make you go on a reality check. 

This book has six parts which are subdivided into different topics. Pictures are shown below and I included some quotable quotes from the sample topics I chose.

 Malamig ang Christmas mo? Huwag kang mag-alala, hindi ka nag-iisa. Sa mga ganitong panahon, magdala ng sariling jacket at payong. Balang araw, iinit din ang Pasko. Kasama ang lalaking gusto mo.

 Kapag nahanap mo na ang bagay o tao na sa tingin mo ay perfect na para sa iyo, ingatan at alagaan mo. Huwag mong abusuhin. Kapag nawala sila, baka wala ka nang mahahanap na kapalit.

 Sa buhay, lahat tayo nadadapa. Pero ayos lang 'yun. Ang mahalaga, mabilis tayong bumangon.

 Independence has a price. And it doesn't come cheap.

 Just live. Forget the rules, forget what other people think, forget the consequences of your actions. Just live, even if it doesn't make sense.

 Ang dami mo nang pinagdaanan. Ang dami mo nang naranasan. Kaya pakiramdam mo, alam mo na rin ang kalalabasan nito. Alam mo na mauuwi lang din ito sa wala. Kaya habang maaga pa, inaayawan mo na.

The layout of the book is still similar to the first book. The callouts are still there but lesser graphics this time. I personally like how it's kikayly presented.

This is one interesting book that singles or even those who have sweethearts out there should read. Reality sometimes hurts but we definitely need to face it. This makes you think about life but at the same time makes you feel light. If you're interested to read this, you can grab a copy at the National Bookstore at an affordable price of PHP 185.00. Live and love. ♥

Till next post, lovies. Ciao!
