ABNKKBSNPLAko?! is a 2001 novel by Filipino author Bob Ong — his first and most popular work. The title is meant to be read phonetically as "Aba, nakakabasa na pala ako?!", which can be roughly translated as "Wow, I can read now?!" The novel details what are supposedly childhood memories of the author, from his earliest days as a student until his first few years at work.
The success of Bob Ong's book among Filipinos has been attributed to its conversational tone which uses humor to point out various absurdities inherent to Filipino culture. The populularity of ABNKKBSNPLAko in particular is attributed to an element of nostalgia.

One might even call them urban culture lore.
