I’m going to a Balagtasan Debate later today, in about 45 mins. :D I was already drafting an article for submission since last night but decided to write about this event first so I’ll have something fresh and updated and hopefully introduce a cultural literary medium to the masses.
Balagtasan is Filipino poetic/lyrical debating that was invented back in the early 20th Century during American colonial rule. That’s all I have to say about it for now. :)
