Just like most of us, the unkabogabale Vice Ganda admitted that he has some childhood experiences that he wants to forget, or as much as possible, not to look back to. But for his fans and for the people who want to know him better, the comedian went through the heart breaking process of recalling these memories in order to complete his new book titled “Tutoy.”
The making of “Tutoy”
“Tutoy” is Jose Marie Viceral or popularly known as Vice Ganda’s auto biography. Here, the 43-year-old actor shares his life story, that he thinks people will learn something from.
“Nung sinusulat namin ‘to mahirap. Syempre habang lumalaki ka may mga bahagi ng buhay mo na gusto mong talikuran, gusto mong kalimutan, pero sa librong ito, kailangan ko silang alalahanin ulet. Kasi it’s worth sharing kaya hindi ko rin pinagsisihan,” Vice told the members of the press during the grand launch of “Tutoy’ recently held in Market, Market, Taguig.
A trip to his childhood
He also said that this book will bring the readers to the life that he used to have when he was a child, to his first love, up to this point of his life, as he is now a box-office actor.
“Kahit araw-araw nila akong nakikita sa telebisyon, yung mga simpleng detalye hindi ko naman laging nasasabi. Sa first part mapi-picture ninyo kung ano talaga yung lugar na pinanganakan ko,” he shared.
“Gusto ko habang binabasa nila nabi-visualize nila yung lugar, naaamoy nila, nararamdaman nila yung init. Yung karanasan ko sa eskwelahan nung nag-aaral ako, yung masasayang pangyayari sa buhay ko noong bata ako pati na rin yung malulungkot,” he explained.
Important life lessons from “Tutoy”s story
When asked what important lessons this book will impart to its readers, the “It’s Showtime” host said that it’s to embrace their individuality. “Yung pinakamagandang aral na matutunan dito ay yung kilalanin mo ang sarili mo at bitbitin mo yung pagkakakilala mo sa sarili mo kahit saan ka magpunta, huwag mong tatalikuran ito,” he told MB Life.
“Kasi hindi mo tuluyang mapupuntahan yung gusto mong puntahan kung hindi mo kilala ang sarili mo. Dahil kung ang pangalan mo hindi mo alam, yung destinasyon mo ikaliligaw mo rin,” Vice ended.
“Tutoy” is now available in bookstores nationwide.
