|Development worker Nestor Pestelos read from his own book of poetry and essays.|
Poetry is night and day, love and war, rain or shine - literally.
Last minute pre-event technical issues didn't stop the Kaliwat ni Karyapa's banner poetry event Balut, Beer ug Balak 5 at the Plaza Rizal from celebrating out loud poetry with local poets and poetry-lovers -- nor can the rain.
|Balut, beer ug balak - solb!|
The usual Kaka poets and collaborators were there...
|Vida Tirol de Juan|
|DJ Arro (also MC'd the event)|
|Darlene Bustrillos, who read her mom's poetry|
|A random poet with a poem in hand|
And of course, a happy surprise were the singer-songwriters (poet-musicians, really) who played and sang their own songs!
The Kaliwat ni Karyapa thanks CCAD, the Provincial GSO, PPDC Atty. John Vistal (a Kaka himself), as well as all the poets and friends who celebrated Balut, Beer ug Balak with them.
