Books by Lualhati Bautista. Dinala ako ni Lualhati Bautista sa panahong hindi ko kinamulatan. The plot is a clean storyline well, as clean as an adult life can go anyway.

While this may extract snickers from the young, or eye-rolling from the old, the title’s meaning actually goes deeper than that. But that is also part of the things I liked about her character – she acts in her own way. And for this reason, the novel depicts the society’s view of women, how it is to be a mother, and how a mother executes this role through modern-day concepts of parenthood.

Mabuting binasa ko ang nobela. But Lea, Ojie, and Maya find themselves at crossroads when the fathers propose taking their respective kids with them. Lualhati Bautista is known for her outstanding and award-winning novels.

In the end, both of Lea’s children decided to choose to stay with her — a decision that Lea never forced upon them. Was this review bautistaa to you?


In short, this book is outdated. For any woman to have two children from two different men is an ordeal, but women’s rights advocate Lea Vilma Santos is not just any woman: Open Preview See a Problem?

Its humanity is what allowed me to finish it. It was about Lea making sure to continue to live her life for herself, to pursue her dreams and not lose who she is just because she was married, despite the various men in her life trying to control her. Although her children’s fathers find madness in her methods, they pretty much let Lea have her way of doing things as far as their children are concerned.

I hope you enjoyed my review of Bata, Bata 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 anymore.

Pero after ko naman siya basahin, nagustuhan ko rin naman. Lea leaves a message to her audience that a graduation day is not an end because it is actually the beginning of everything else that will come in a person’s life. Take note that I did not say feminist.


Bata, Bata… Pa’no Ka Ginawa?

I have no problem with feminist books or anything that defends equal rights for women. I said too- feminine and that made the book extremely alienating. Mar 09, Drew rated it it was amazing. Mabuhay ka Lualhati Bautista! Aug 28, Haeja rated it it was amazing Shelves: Pa’no Ka Ginawa was very refreshing for me, because while it involved romance and sex, the depiction of Lea was not some lovesick woman who cannot go on without a man.

Okay, sobra kong na-enjoy ang book lualhtai ito. She took up Journalism in the Lyceum of the Philippines, and eventually stopped schooling because all she wanted to do was write.

Lualhati Bautista (Author of Bata, Bata Pa’no Ka Ginawa?)

Dahil iyon ang magpapalalim sa isip niya at huhubog sakanya bilang malakas at matatag na tao. Napakaraming karakter ang ginampanan ni Lea sa nobelang ito: Wala ring expiration date.

Olivarez Andrea Del Rosario But I would recommend this to other teenagers, not because as high-school-compliance but because of the picturesque Slice-of-Life the author shared.

I did not like the book in the beginning.
