The Neighborhood Reviews Bukambibig

The Neighborhood, Rogue Media Inc’s digital magazine that reviews art, food, design, culture, style, and wellness in Manila, recently featured Bukambibig’s Third Issue. Written by Alyssa Castillo, she shared, “I’m a picky reader–despite lacking knowledge (or refined taste) for what good literature supposedly is. But for a while, my eyes were glued to the screen. Disasters is filled with works of honest writers.”

The review also mentioned Mark’s poem. “Mark Dimaisip’s “Sun-kissed, Windswept, Weather-beaten” bears his childlike perspective on Filipinos’ way of facing natural disasters–narrating years of his childhood spent in brownouts and candlelit homework, toxic air and volcanic ash, and rescue missions during the 1990 great Luzon earthquake. But during months of grey skies, he also remembers a rare blue moon following a peaceful sunset of electric colors.”
