Hello, hello! I was able to nab some pictures of the Philippine National Children's Book Awards ceremony from Ramón "Rayvi" C. Sunico and from the Philippine National Book Development Board (photos taken by Daniel Tan). Here I am with fellow judge Maria Elena "Mailin" Locsin. I had just arrived at the awards ceremony and was anxious to announce the winners to the whole world. To the left is Rayvi, a pioneer in Filipino young adult literature and the man behind the awards! From left to right: the fabulous Atty. Andrea Pasion-Flores, executive director of the Philippine National Book Development Board, and my fellow judges Karen Ocampo Flores, Dr. Lina Diaz de Rivera, moi, and Mailin. (Ana Maria F. Rodriguez, also a judge for the awards, was unable to attend the ceremony.)
