You are in the online directory of pages where you can find significant information about Bicol Culture and Arts, along with resources for Bicol literature and music which are distinct from other ethnical groups, as well as a listing of the names of the forerunners and contemporary advocates who work to elevate the value of the local culture and language, not only through scholastic discussions and academic studies, but in the continuing practice of the language and pursuit of activities which perpetuate in the tradition of the old and embody the rich heritage of our ancestry.


The blog fittingly contains posts written in the native language as it supports the campaign to perpetuate the use of Bicol in speaking and in writing. However, most of its content is written in the English language so that it may also be understood and be of use to people of other cultures who are interested in knowing about the Bicolano pride.

We feature three main pages which are our contribution in the collective efforts to assist in the revival of interest in Bicol literature and music from among today's generation and to help inculcate the pride of one's origin and cultural heritage in the midst of the pop-driven present:
  • Bicol Culture and Arts Online Directory
    • Find here general information about the local culture and the arts and jump off through links to pages and sites that are devoted to Bicol culture and arts.
  • Bicol Bibliography and Discography
    • This is a survey of related studies and literature for students, teachers, researchers, and lovers of the Bicol culture and heritage, as well as a listing of compositions and songs of the past and the contemporary eras.
  • Mga Kurit sa Dahon nin Daragang Minagayon
    • Musings, creative writing, word play, poetry, and fragments of life--it is a personal collection of the The Midnight Writer aka Minagayon.
  • Links 
    • A miscellaneous listing of external links of interest to the blog keepers and/or found useful by them but do not exactly fall under any of the above classifications.

........i'm just another writer still trapped within my truth........

i have forgotten about what it is to write...
to catch that in-between the silence and the heart’s beating…
and go about that divide which separates shadow from the ground…
Writing, my first love!
and so, i write. répondez s’il vous plaît.

naling'wan ko na kun pa'no an mag surat...
kun pa'no mahagilap an uya sa tahao kan kasilenciohan asin pag-ibot kan puso...
buda malakop iyan na nagbabanga sa anino asin daga...

An Pagsurat, sakuyang enot na pagkamoot!
biyo logod, ako minasurat. magsimbag ka.

"Rooted and built up in Jesus Christ, firm in the faith."
