Bob Ong and My Favorite Book

Forgive me if this blog seemed ignored for like a century already. I have been so busy with so many things work-related plus the major subjects in Graduate school, with requirements to include 1 research paper, 2 other papers and an oncoming midterm exams for next week. But seriously, there are a just a lot of things I am handling now that I cannot seem to prioritize which ones need my attention first or the most.

But I had a chance to bond with my friends after a super duper long hiatus of bonding with family. We agreed that since we all are Bob Ong fanatics, we would watch ABNKKBSNPLAko together with our families. It was laugh trip and a journey to nostalgia. 


And since we all enjoyed the movie, Sir Gilbert was generous to give us a copy of the 12th anniversary book version and the card game to which this post is the reason of. It was belated Valentine's gift and advance Mother's Day gift. That was really sweet of him.

I opened the card game and behold, the question for me says: 

Ano ang paborito mong libro 
at tungkol ito saan?

Master of the Game is a novel by Sidney Sheldon, one of my favorite authors; the story revolves around the six generations of the fictional MacGregor/Blackwell family. Kate Blackwell and her granddaughter, Alexandra and Alexandra's husband Peter and son Robert. 

The story is about revenge, a game wherein most would consider as realistic because it is what actually happens in real life as well. The feud between families because of inheritance, of cheating and of greed. 

Of course I am not going to talk more about this because I want you to read the story. And sharing more about it would be a spoiler for those who would want to read it.

Sidney Sheldon is my favorite writer. In college I read all the books I can get of him. I like that there's always the "psychologically crazy" character in his books.
