About IT’S A MENS WORLD:

Nagnakaw ka ba noong bata ka pa? Naranasan mo na bang makidnap ng sarili mong magulang? Naranasan mo ba ang maging pingpong dahil sa pasaway mong nanay at tatay? Nainggit ka ba sa mga pinsan mo noong kabataan ninyo? Minsan ba, na-feel mong alien ka sa piling ng kamag-anak mo sa father side? E, sa mother side? Side by side?

Kung sumagot ka ng oo sa alinman sa mga tanong na ‘yan, aba’y makaka-relate ka! Relate na relate. Saan? Sa pinakabagong aklat tungkol sa childhood. Garantisadong tatawa ka at least once sa pagbabasa ng librong ito. Kung hindi, soli bayad. Pwamis.

IT’S A MENS WORLD, isang koleksiyon ng mga sanaysay ni Bebang Siy.

Excerpt from IT’S A MENS WORLD:

Unang nagka-mens ang kapatid kong si Colay kesa sa akin. Ten years old siya noon at ako, magtu-twelve. Sabi ng mga pinsan ko, nauna raw si Colay kasi mas mataba siya at mas aktibo sa paggalaw-galaw kesa sa akin.

Naging sentro ng atensiyon si Colay noong araw na reglahin siya. Lahat kami, nasa labas ng kubeta, naghihintay sa paglabas ng “bagong” dalaga. Pagbukas ng pinto, itong stepmother ko, biglang pumasok. Hinanap niya ang panty ni Colay sa loob ng kubeta. Gulat na gulat si Colay siyempre.

Bakit? Tanong niya sa stepmother namin.

Labhan mo. Tubig lang. Wag kang gagamit ng sabon. Kusot-kusot lang. Tapos ipunas mo sa mukha mo ‘yang panty. Tapos sabihin mo, sana maging singkinis ng perlas ang mukha ko. Ulit-ulitin mo. Habang ipinupunas mo sa mukha mo ang panty.
