Filipiniana Book of the Week

Ako’y isang Pinoy, ako’y hindi kano. ‘Wag kang mahihiya kung ang ilong mo ay pango“.

Pinoy Pop Culture
by Gilda Cordero-Fernando And M.G. Chavez

 

Bench goes POP!  The popular clothing line, BENCH, teamed up with renown writers Gilda Cordero-Fernando and MG Chavez, to come up with a book that promotes popular culture (Pop Culture) in the Philippines.  It discusses a variety of culture-related topics like Pinoy lingo, food, transportation, Pinoy superheroes like Darna and entertainment scene actors like Dolphy.

The writings are not as scholarly as any book in the library, but this is what Pop Culture is, and Cordero-Fernando was able to bring out the Pop in every Filipino.
