Relient K at The Ayala Malls

Last September 26, Relient K was presented to the media and bloggers alike by the Ayala Malls team. The meet-and-greet event was at the Roof Deck of Holiday Inn Makati. It was explained to us that an old hand-me-down car by one of the band members was the inspiration of the band's name. Cool, right?

Nintendo Kid

I grew up playing Nintendo. It used to be called- "Game & Watch" back then and one game is one unit. So if you want to play three different games, you need to buy all three units. Famous game back then was Donkey Kong.

I can't remember the game called "Ball," which happen to be the first photo but I remember playing "Parachute." There were others as well like- Egg, Octopus, Fireman, etc. Then Nintendo came up with the double screen version and the mini game & watch. 

A lot of adults now (like me) grew up playing those games and now, new and improved versions of the Nintendo are being played by our children. There's the Gameboy, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, etc. 

Then I happen to read this in the news today that Mr. Hiroshi Yamauchi, who used to managed the company passed away. You can read the article -- here. He is the force behind the success of our much love game. Rest in Peace, Mr. Yamauchi.

Ultimart and Liliw Shopping Challenge

Sundays for me are usually reserved for my family, waking up late and eating brunch together then going to the church and mall afterwards. But today- I, along with 11 other bloggers were treated to a Food & Cultural Tour hosted by The Aristocrat Group which also includes a 30-minute shopping challenge at Ultimart in San Pablo City and Liliw, Laguna respectively.

It is my first time to join this kind of event and have a chance to bond and get-to-know my fellow bloggers. The long trip was filled with tales and laughter (and food), some trivia and gossip, and all the things that happen during a fieldtrip ride including taking a nap, bumpy roads, and traffic. But it was really fun.

BOOK REVIEW: City Of Bones

Years ago, I used to choose what books are suitable for my daughter to read. Now, its the other way around. She's been bugging me for ages to read --- City of Bones even before the movie. I think she read all four books and is waiting for the last installment. Then she and her ninang scheduled a movie date for City of Bones but it didn't push thru since the Metropolis was flooded with moonsoon rains and her ninang lives in Cavite. Luckily, one of her BFFs lives nearby so they scheduled a movie date- chaperoned by her friend's mom and achie.

At last, I have found the time to read the book and I can say I'm hooked. I'm now reading the second installment. But will talk about the City of Bones first.
