G kailangan Lahat ng panahon ay hindi panahon ng mga takot at pagtitmpi; lahat ng panahon ay panahon ng pagpapasiy One of the best I read this year this novel is a powerful commentary on motherhood single parenthood marriage desire and a woman s role in the turbulent period near the tail end of the Marcos dictatorshipThe novel offers a sharp rebuke of the double standards of a patriarchal society as well as the limits of the bourgeois individualist illusion of free love which also puts women in a vulnerable position vis a vis menLike other classic Filipino novels of Lualhati Bautista this one also shares he same characteristic juxtaposition of mounting personal crisis with the larger background of exploding social contradictions Bata Bata Pa no Ka Ginawa is a must read

Hanggang sa ang bata ay hindi na bata kundi ama o ina Ano ang ituuro niya ngayon sa kanyang mga anak Lahat ng dapa This book is my 158th read book for this year but just the second time that I am giving a 1 star rating As much as possible I don t give this rating because there are always somethings to like in a book Just imagine the hours the writer put in writing the book and prior to its release he or she must have said a lot of prayers asking God to make readers buy and read itBut I also have to be honest to myself right I think Bautista should still be thankful that I bought and read her book Anyway this is my second by her Last year I read and liked her 2nd novel Dekada 70 3 stars so this month August being the Month of our National Language I picked up this book hoping that this was as good as Dekada After all Dekada won the Palanca our euivalent of Pulitzer in 1983 and this book Bata Bata won the following year 1984 So I said to myself wow two years in a row this book must be really really goodBut I got disappointed Reasons1 Too feminine I always believe that books like human beings have gender This book is written by a woman only for women It is too alienating for us men Lualhati seems to have this itch to rally all women by her campaign slogan It s not a man s world What you men can do we can do too Oh well who says that this is still a man s world Hello Wake up little Suzie It s the 21st century and you can already exercise your right of suffrage both father and mother are now working and they fight when they don t agree many woman have children without marrying society no longer look down on them and yes women can do almost all the jobs that we men do and nobody gets surprised any In short this book is outdated It s passeTake note that I did not say feminist I have no problem with feminist books or anything that defends eual rights for women I said too feminine and that made the book extremely alienating2 Rehash of Dekada So many similarities between her 2nd book to this 3rd book Not only about her outdated slogan but also about the missing child the protagonist desire to work and her right to think of herself It was as if I was still listening to Amanda Bartolome the protagonist in Dekada instead of Lea Bustamante the protagonist here in Bata Bata Same banana only the name has changed3 Lea is a sex maniac Oh dear Lord Stay away from Lea Bustamante She is married Since she doesn t want to stop working when her husband gets assigned to another place she calls it uits even if they already have a son When her husband leaves she gets herself another man and now they also have a child a daughter Then when both of her men have their own new wives she asks her co worker to have sex with her and it is for her sexual urge to be satisfiedI mean oh dear Lord In my 48 years of existence on earth I have not met any woman like Lea Bustamante She is just out of her mind Sleeping around like a whore and having children in the process At the very least hello have you not heard of safe sex Miss BustamanteI understand if my GR Filipino friends who are ladies or those who want to be ladies like this book very much but oh please not for me

T niyang matutuhan ngayon pa lang hindi pagkamasunurin at pagkakimi kundi pagkibo pag may sasabihin at paglaban pa Talagang mahal na ang lahat wala nang mura kundi buhay ng Pilipino Page 151This is the first book that I ve read written in Tagalog that I actually finished because let s be real I never finished reading Ibong Adarna Noli Me Tangere and other books reuired for class because it s Buwan ng Wika or Language Month It was definitely a change of pace from my usual books and genres but I do not regret reading it This was written during the Marcos Regime and it highlighted the wrongdoings and injustices that people faced during this time For me it meshed awkwardly with the main character s life but nonetheless it gave me a portrait of how it was like during this time The main character Lea Bustamante is also not your typical heroine or dare I say woman She basically said Screw gender roles No man or woman can dictate my choices in life She is the very epitome of a strong independent woman who occasionally needs a man lol Although there were a lot of cheating themes in this book I liked the fact that Lea is portrayed as horny It s because we always see men rotating over different girls and no one bats an eye but if a girl is seen with many guys she s instantly shunned and disliked I really liked how Lea did not give a shit to what other people said about to her My only complaint about this story is that it was bitin or ended too uickly I would have loved to see of Lea s journey and acceptance of the fact that she should stop looking for happiness in men Anyway this is my first book from Lualhati Bautista and I m excited to read 3
