Finally, the much-awaited Flips Flipping Pages April Book discussion successfully took place, after weeks of preparation, coordinating with National Book Store, Anvil, and the staff of Ricky Lee to mount this memorable event featuring the book Para Kay B.

It was a great discussion, revealing juicy secrets (please, let’s keep everything in confidence!) among the attendees, discussing which chapters we liked best from the book, love, character stereotypes, colloquialism, and Filipino reading habits.

The highlight of the event was getting to meet the author, the famous Filipino scriptwriter Ricky Lee, who fast became a Flipper favorite because of his friendly and engaging personality, candidly answering our questions, and showing genuine interest in what we thought of his book, as well as FFP activities, even the book swap, and BookMooch!

I also think everyone was able to gain better appreciation for the book after being able to discuss it with fellow book club members and with Ricky Lee himself.

Ricky Lee was also kind enough to sign our books, with special dedications for everyone — yup, we compared messages at the dinner buffet at Thai Kitchen!

Here’s mine:

We capped the night off with dessert and chitchat at Cafe Breton.


It was another great book discussion for FFP and I can’t wait for the next one!
