An Exclusive Interview with Singer-Songwriter turned Picture Book Author Noel Cabangon

We are very excited to have singer-songwriter Noel Cabangon today in GatheringBooks as he shares with us some of his thoughts about his recently-published picture book for children, Ako ay Isang Mabuting Pilipino (I am a Good Filipino). Head on over to our Behind the Books feature on Noel by clicking the link below and learn more about the man: his dreams, his music, his words.

Noel Cabangon’s “Ako ay Isang Mabuting Pilipino”

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
