The book was written in Tagalog slang. The story presents a sentimental account of his life in school that also reflects the school life of typical Filipinos. The story begins with Roberto narrating his day in school, explaining the common shortcomings of a public school.
Roberto Ong, the main character in the story is a typical school boy who has dreams and visions in life. It was the misadventures of Roberto and his two childhood bestfriends that brought laughter to the story. Anyone would love the nostalgic feeling brought by the book. The author successfully portrayed in his anecdotes, even the most absurd moments of his student life in the most creative way.
One reason why this book is loved and appreciated by many is because of its simplicity. The words used were very simple with a touch of modernity.
The story is almost understandable even by young readers. Informal words like colloquials and slangs can be seen in some part of the book, which is just enough to lighten the mood and get the attention of readers using humor. Bob Ong depicted in his book, the Filipino cultural norms in his time which is somehow existing until today. He did not fail to criticize the society in a satirical manner. We gave the book an over-all rating of 4 over 5 for its perfectly written masterpiece with a very slight flaw.
We could say some jokes in the book were corny, not totally lame, but it somehow failed our expectation that it would make us laugh until we cannot breathe. On the positive side, we consider this book still a worth-reading material, not purely based on its comedic content, but because of the life lessons it imparts on the readers.
I am about to graduate from med school ten years from now. Perhaps, I will be missing special occasions and gatherings, spending time with my patients who most needed me, away from my family. By ten years, I would probably be a professional working lady. I am now an engineer working for an international company. At times, I will be travelling to other country for business purposes, but if time and financial status allows me to, I would gladly bring my family with me in my travel.

The story also delineates the Filipino culture. Amusingly, it uncovers the social issues and realities specifically in the field of education and economy. The author wanted us to look into a bigger picture of what life truly is and be knowledgeable on what education truly is. The text was delivered in an informal and casual manner wherein Bob Ong just seems to be our friend, who is sharing his experiences, talking about his student life — in the most casual tone. He did not used words that need to be looked up on the dictionary and it was easier for us to comprehend everything he wants to convey. These parts were full of substance, had valid arguments, supported by facts. Since the book is about a student, we were really able to relate on the life accounts of Roberto.
