    I’m not sure if I’ll be able to find one in campus.. But I’ll go look for it, most definitely, for you.^^ We have a store in UP Diliman where the books published by the University Press is found. They still carry the rare ones, sometimes. Try ko ate. Then I’ll send it over to you, if ever.^^

      @owbee and ate betchay

      Sale pati sa SM mamaya kaya makikipagsikisan talaga ako ngayon. hehe.XD Hahanapin ko sa SM north – National Bookstore yung UP Diksyonaryong Pilipino.. Kung wala, try ko sa UP Press. Sa college namin, may mga book sales minsan at for sale sa kanila yung bagong copies ng UP Diksyonaryong Pilipino (hardbound), kaya hindi po malabong makakuha pa.^^ Hindi ko nga lang alam ang price.. baka libo na po.

    Hello! been a reader/fan of your blog for months now. I love everything korean, have learned hangeul(a bit), have so many korean friends and I’m planning to visit Korea. Btw, I have the book, I have a friend in UP Press and he gave it to me for free. I had it sent here in Abu Dhabi. Can I read it first before sending it to you\9if u still wnat it), I’ve been curious about it since I read
    your post.

      Hi Keniegirl14! Thank you so much for the offer. I received the copy sent by Nicole yesterday. I read it on the subway and I finished it today. It’s not quite long but pretty interesting. A lot of the things she’d experienced more than 25 years ago are still true until today. I mostly agree with her views on Korean women. It’s an pretty interesting read and I liked the overall tone of the book.

    I found the book in UP Press’ booth at the Manila Book Fair in 2008. Rare find, but I’m sure you can ask UP Press if they still have copies. It’s very good, and Mrs Hidalgo’s writing style is engaging.
