Ambahan: A Love Story Poems written by Quintin Jose V. Pastrana celebrates and honors the Hanunuo Mangyan’s traditional form of poetry. In the words of Dr. Nestor Castro, Cultural Anthropologist from the University of the Philippines: “While honoring the tradition, he (Quintin) has introduced his own innovations in verse structure with fixed seven-line stanzas to create a more rigid art form while infusing new metaphors, contemporary themes; and from his experience, different aspects of love.”

Award-winning author Danton Remoto lends his expertise in translating the poems in Filipino and with inscriptions of Mangyan script (Surat Mangyan) by the indigenous peoples organization ---Pinagkausahan Hanunuo sa Daga Ginurang (PHADAG).
