I have been asked several times why do I write. Here is my response.


I write in both English and Filipino. I have in this website short stories, essays and poems (mostly free verse) in both languages. The ones written in English are the ones I have in this section.

I have my essays under the following sub-sections personal essays, literature, language and movies, and on personal development.

This section also includes declamation and oratorical pieces  which I wrote for my students joining speech contests in the schools where I worked in the past. There were also times that some people would contact me to ask that I write for them declamation and oratorical pieces.

I also decided to include a section for my most important research works, some of which were published in international journals and presented international conferences. Under the section my research works,  there’s a sub-section – my academic essays – where I put together my blogs on the subject education. You can also find under this part of my website a collection of my anthropomorphised  blogs which I pieced together as the jungle stories.  There was a time also that I worked for an online news organization called The Vincent Times which is no longer active. Here are the articles I wrote for them.

I also write commentaries on socio-political issues in my country (The Philippines) and sports articles.

My website is a “mixed bag.” I don’t focus on a single topic or a single genre. What usually happens is that after a class or a conversation with a colleague, an idea develops and inspire me to write and as to whether it’s a poem, a story,  or an essay I would write depends on the idea that develops and on my mood.

My works are simple ones. I am trying very hard until now to improve my craft so I can produce better essays, poems and stories. From time to time, I revisit the articles here for revision and editing. I would always find something to revise or edit every time I reread my articles here and it keeps me really occupied thus rarely do I have time to get bored.

My website  my personal portfolio where I intend to put together everything that I have written (and will be writing).
