1. RomanceClass AprilFeelsDay2023 will be at Magdamag Market Cafe, 3 PM to 6 PM, on April 29 Saturday. Free admission! Our theme is “afternoon tea” and we’ll have book launches, new projects and partner announcements, and LIVE READINGS omg with our friends Gio Gahol, Rachel Coates, Marynor Madamesila (her first time so let’s cheer her on!), and maybe some surprises.
We will be serving tea and coffee and pastries. Please bring a favorite reusable tea cup/mug/tumbler (if this is a thing for you!). And because someone asked, yes pwedeng magdala ng plus one wink wink.
If you’re unable to attend we will have a Twitch livestream covering the program and live readings! Just go to kilig.pub/twitch to watch live for free on any browser. If you want to join the chat, you’ll need a Twitch account. To watch it on demand after the event, you’ll need to be a Tier 1 subscriber to our channel. See you, Team Bahay!
2. Romance + pets + anthology for charity! In 2021 our Tropetastic Kindness bundle raised funds for Project Propel, Gantala Press, and RockED Philippines. In 2022, NomCom raised funds for non-profit org For Our Farmers. This year, we have an all-new anthology called Pawfect For You, with stories by Danice Mae P. Sison, Ines Bautista-Yao, Tara Frejas, Celestine Trinidad, Angel C. Aquino, and Jay E. Tria. All proceeds will be donated to Pawssion Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of dogs and cats in distress. Pre-order/donate now at kilig.pub/pawfect4u! Available until June 29, 2023 only.
3. I watched Beef on Netflix. I have so many feelings about it. It hasn’t left my head. A stressful watch. Stress Drilon. Stressie Tomas. [Edited to add: If you’re thinking of checking out the show because I’ve talked about it, please see the news about it that since been written, particularly around actor David Choe, whose art was also featured in practically every episode. It’s terrible, and I’m understating when I say I’m disappointed on many levels.]
4. Also did that map of where I’ve lived/stayed/visited in my country. Via https://my-philippines-travel-level.com
