Bob Ong left college to pursue a career in writing. The author, who also worked as a computer developer and a teacher, created the Bob ong Pinoy website in his leisure time under a pseudonym. The name is a lovingly derogatory word that translates to “Dumb Filipino.” According to Bob Ong, “my boss would have fired me had he known I was the one behind it, despite his admiration for the result.” His renowned alias began after someone contacted him thinking he was a real person named Bob Ong. After former president Joseph “Erap” Estrada’s ouster in the wake of the Second People Power Revolution, the site was taken down despite having won the People’s Choice Philippine Web Award for Weird/Humor in 1998.
Nida Ramirez of Visprint, which ended up publishing Bob Ong’s book, claims that the author expressed interest in having his work published on the Bob ong Pinoy website. After becoming a fan of Bob ong Pinoy, Ramirez reached out to him and began communicating with him, which led to the release of ABNKKBSNPLAko?!, Bob Ong’s debut novel, in 2001. As of the year 2018, the author had published eleven additional works.

Ang mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan Book Summary
As I scanned the shelves in National Bookstore, I noticed this book prominently displayed near the register. And as soon as I saw Bob Ong’s name, I picked up a copy and headed straight to the register. As a result, I went into this book completely blind. I’ve also given up on understanding the true meaning of Bob Ong’s books until I’ve read them all the way through.
I abstained from making comparisons to his past works because he is, without a doubt, one of the most unpredictable authors in the United States. There is no way to compare the books because each one is complete in itself. But that’s the way things are right now. I have no idea if a sequel is even in the works.
Anyway, I was bewildered when reading the first several chapters, and, to be honest, I still am. A lot of questions remain unsolved, such as who Niko is and what happened to Galo’s girlfriend. What was it that Galo had been keeping secret? and so forth and so on. Some of that, though, makes sense, given that the novel is written from the first person perspective. Galo’s journal is not dissimilar to that of any other person. Especially the events we’d rather forget or are ashamed of, we rarely record them in words or on paper.
Whether it was the book itself or the fact that I’m easily terrified, I began to feel nervous somewhere around the book’s midpoint. I’m leaning towards the second choice. Now that there were so few pages left, I found myself frequently opening and closing it. I debated stopping to catch my breath and just keeping going to see what would happen. I abruptly put the book down at Bob’s shocking threat that the reader would be the spirit’s next target for possession.
