Paano Ba ‘To?! is a book a few decades delayed for me. It would have helped me tremendously if I read a book like this when I was a teenager. Yes, this book is perfectly written for the ‘younger-than-me’ generation but there are other topics that would still be relevant for a mommy in her mid30s.
The book is divided into topics about:
Career & Money
Fashion & Beauty
Bianca would start a chapter with a little introduction and proceed with Question & Answer part. There are questions for Bianca and she would answer and give her advice like a well- meaning Ate (older sister). She would also have parts where she would get good role model celebrities that would share their thoughts and experiences on a particular topic. I am happy to see admirable celebrities that took part in this book like Rissa Mannaquil-Trillo, Iza Calzado and Toni Gonzaga. After every topic, there is an activity for you to do and jot down your thoughts.
Reading this book can allow you to take a glimpse of Bianca’s life without her over-revealing too much and not making it like an all-out autobiography. Rather what it does, it gives the readers some guidance in their life’s crossroads and answers some burning questions they wanted to ask someone ” who knows better” & has been through it.
The book looks very much like a book for teens with its fun doodles in the pages of the book. Every page is different from the next. Bianca collaborated with talented letterer, Abbey Sy for the beautiful calligraphy of inspirational passages on the book. Inside the book contains stickers for you to customize your book.
I would keep this book and if I am blessed with a daughter, I would love to give this her.
How about you? Have you read this book already?
