Ang Batang Maraming Bawal
By Fernando Gonzalez
Artworks by Rodel Tapaya

Other children might dread hospital visits, but I, among them, would find it odd if a month passes without seeing the doctor.

Kung ang ibang bata, takot sa ospital, ako yata, sa lahat ng mga bata ang maninibago sakaling lumipas ang isang buwan na hindi man lamang nakakadalaw sa aking duktor.
