This is contemporary author and artist, Lang Leav's second time to visit the Philippines. The first one was in February when she was promoting her first book, Love and Misadventure.

"Nothing much has changed," she said when we asked her what she's been up to since her last visit. "The only difference, I think, is that I have a harder time to communicate as much as I used to [on social media] because of time constraints."

While the bestselling author may have a difficult time responding to messages from her fans (there are thousands of them!) all over the world, she continues to share her works and that of her partner's, Michael Faudet, over Facebook or Tumblr. And that includes bits and pieces of poems and prose from her new book, Lullabies. Asked what she thinks makes it different from her first book, she said, "There are longer pieces of prose. It's less whimsical. It's got a more serious tone to it."

Since Lang loves sharing her work online, we just had to ask her about poems and prose she'd want you to read from her books for specific situations. Here are her suggestions

  1. For friendships: "I wrote a poem about being friendzoned, Just Friends, and that has really been so popular."
