the inquirer story...



Just found out today from the blog of Daphne Osena that I, with 39 other Filipinos were on the front page of the Philippine Daily Inquirer last Sunday! We were part of a worldwide traveling journal for Filipinos called Lagalag.

This project was started in the United States by multiple Carlos Palanca Award winner Wilfredo Pascual who contacted us - 20 Filipinos living abroad and 20 more from home to write about our journeys in 2 moleskine notebooks which we will be passing around until the last stop in the Philippines. We were handpicked and invited by Wilfredo through the online photography portal called flickr. See the official lagalag pages here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/lagalag/

You can also the full article on Inquirer here: http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/inquirerheadlines/nation/view/20080727-150928/Filipino-diaries-reach-final-destination

TV host Daphne Osena-Paez was the last stop of the 2 notebooks and the journey of the two moleskines ends with her, but the Inquirer discovered about the Lagalag story through her blog: http://daphneosena.livejournal.com/

We hope that this sparks fire anew in the hearts of Filipinos back home and around the world to write about their individual personal journeys that have led them to where they are now...
