Yes! Our very own Bitoy, is on the September's issue of Reader's Digest. Not only that, he is the cover on the said issue. Isn't that great! A Filipino made it to the Reader's Digest cover!

Hi! Based on his TV interview, they called him on the phone, asked about his beginnings. His days in Tenenement (is that in FTI?) Indeed, his story would definitely be inspiring, as it will tell his humble beginning to where he is now. If surely makes us proud to be Pinoy! Thanks for responding!

I also love Tropang Trumpo. I honestly think Ogie and Bitoy were funnier there and so are the jokes, the whole group's chemistry then was perfect. Thanks for responding!

That's wonderful! Do you know that one of my writing friends had her anecdote published too at Reader's Digest. Paid her $ 100 just for a 5 liner! I'm trying hard to enter but I guess it will take a little longer. You can send too. Try and try until we succeed. Congrats to Michael V. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Jena! Actually, I have been sending anecdotes, jokes, and what-have-you to Reader's Digest long before I was even blogging. Unfortunately, I haven't had any luck yet. Must really be difficult to get published to them. Thanks for responding.

Honestly, I haven't got a copy too. I just saw on TV today. So I immediately blogged about it, before I thought of posting it here. Well also get my copy too. Thanks for responding!

I like Michael V. as a person, he is humble and nice. Big things do really come from small things. Let us be inspired in this kind of people.

Wow that is really great. Bitoy has made a mark in his career already. I guess he is a very talented actor/comedian singer and a host too. I think he really deserves to be lime lighted in Reader's Digest because of his accomplishments in his career.

I would like to apologize to you. I read from news today about Michael V. being on the cover of RD. Then I posted it here until someone who responded told me that the topic has been posted. So I search and found yours. I never search topics before I post. Now I promise to do it.. I dont intend to copy your discussion.. My sincerest apology..

Hi! That was very nice of you. But no need to ask for apology really. There are lots of discussions going on in here, and sometimes we can't help but create a new discussion because we're so eager of the news we received (like Bitoy's). Very few members really search before they start a new discussion. Thanks anyway. Don't worry, you didn't do anything wrong. Thanks for responding! Happy mylotting!

Big deal. Many Pinoys have made it to the cover. Besides, it probably is just the Asian version of the Digest.

That seems pretty negative. It is Reader's Digest Asia but still worth a yahoo! You know?

Yeah, I had that reader's digest issue. It's great that they featured a Filipino artist that is so very talented and does really make us laughed and very proud to be a Filipino. Way to go Michael V.
