The Blogger

Just in case you want to find out a little something about me, here are nine random things.

01. I’m Angus, hello. I gave up anonymity long ago. I am not named after a steak or a Celtic god. I was named after AC/DC’s Angus Young.

02. I’m active on Facebook, Goodreads, Instagram,, and Letterboxd. If you are so inclined, search for me and add me. I may or may not accept your request.

03. I blog about books because I realized that I am not a celebrity and that blogging about myself would not do me good. Besides, I love books so much that I have to have a book blog.

04. I am currently a technical writer. I dream of becoming a creative writer. A novelist. A short story writer. A culture critic. All of the above.

05. I currently live in Mandaluyong City. I was raised in Angeles City.

06. Aside from books and blogging, I like dramatic movies. I like alternative, ambient, baroque, electronic, and folk music. I just started listening to podcasts. I don’t watch a lot of TV because I don’t have a TV.

07. I auditioned as a castaway for the first season of Survivor: Philippines. I didn’t make it.

08. I have a cameo appearance in the indie film Serbis, directed by Brillante Mendoza. I volunteered as a production assistant. The end credits billed me as a gay patron.

09. I am gay, yes.


  1. I have a hardbound copy of Digmaang Rosas, (Kempee Tolentino as the EIC). I liked what I’ve read. Now, you’re not only a name.


    • I think that’s the last Digmaang Rosas? I haven’t heard any further issues after Keempee’s term. We’re batchmates, by the way.


    • I met him last Pamiyabe 12. I don’t know but there’s Gawad Digmaang Rosas, still.


    • He’s a nice person. He doesn’t talk much. Or he doesn’t talk to me that much. I didn’t get a chance to work with him at Angelite. I left when he came.

      I really thought Pamiyabe died at Pamiyabe 10. We were invited for a reunion of sorts, but the fellows that I wanted to see couldn’t make it.

  3. I also want to be part of Survivor. Haha, but I gave up my dream of being part of the show because I can’t swim. :D

    Nice blog, Sir. I am a fan. I am doing my rounds (parang doctor lang) so I can get more book titles. :D


    • Hello, Lourd. I almost jumped from my seat upon reading your name. I fancy that you’re Lourd De Veyra, hahaha! Thanks for dropping by.

      Oo nga pala, I also can’t swim. :D


  4. Funny, I do have a late professor who also made it in Serbis as a gay patron. When I learned about it I immediately re-watched Serbis and found his three seconds of fame in the scene at the moviehouse.


  5. Angus. Ownshelf is a new service for eBook readers to share their ebooks with friends across devices. We just launched our beta and opened up to public use and feedback. I would like to invite you to try it out. Blog about it if you like. And certainly send me any feedback.
