Book Hunting

Got to visit Bookay Ukay today with Aya! Yay! Huge thanks to Saab Magalona's blog post about this (but somehow the link to her blog post isn't working at the moment).

Aya and I had lunch at UST before leaving for Bookay Ukay. Rode the Fairview fx and unload at Tandang Sora. Jeep until UP village. We're lost! Asked for directions. Got into UP ikot jeep. And guess what, get to ikot UP for two rounds. Hahaha. The driver forgot to drop us by Krus na Ligas. Hahaha. Joyride much. :)) Tric from Krus na Ligas until Maguinhawa street, exactly infront of Bookay Ukay.

The place is not that visible from the street. There's no banner or tarp that say's they're Bookay Ukay. So we had to ask some people who's staying in Box o Rice which is just infront of Bookay Ukay. And there it is! Just a few stairs away!

Here's a little sneak peak of what the place looks like.

See. They've got a huge number of books here.

And this wall, I just love it! Now I have an idea what my room would look like. *bats eyes*

Of course, here are some books that got my attention.
I bought this one though.

For children of all ages!

You know you love me. XoXo

For future reference. Hahaha!

Algebra and an Arab man?

Pokemon! Gotta have it!

Saw this just beside the sofa. For photography.

Aya found this near the counter. Strange.

Aya gave this to me. She said it's for me, but nah, I think it's for Alex and Ponzi. Hahaha.

Plus some random stuff I found.
Harry Potter and the he-who-shouldn't-be-named figurines. Hermoine and Ron, they have it here too.

The old-but-never-gets-too-old typewriter just lying on the floor.

VHS! Anyone who still has some of these at home, keep 'em! They're to treasure.

Kamikazee poster with their messages and signatures. They've been here? That's effin cool!

And we couldn't let this pass without taking photos including us.


Books I bought.
Goosebumps! The kind of books I read back in my elem years! Too bad all of them got lost. :(

Spent 280php for 5 books. Not bad eh? 80php for the Goosebumps, 40php Pokemon, 80php Coffee something, 40php for both The New Girl and If You Only Knew books.

The cheapest price? 10 PESOS!

I think Aya bought 3 or 4 books for herself. After the almost 2-hour stay in Bookay Ukay, gone straight to Trinoma for a little merienda time. Was planning to visit Alex cause she's sick and she lives just a few walks away from Trinoma but failed to. Instead, we had merienda at Burger King. Mushroom Swiss for the win! And found ourselves looking for books again. Haha!

Books hunting, Trinoma bound.

Who would have thought that after we bought a number of books at Bookay Ukay we still managed to buy another book here in Trinoma. But! It really was a good book. Some book a child of two wonderful parents should have. :)

Aya and I really had fun today! Gone from one place to another. One shelf of books to another. We even got lost but got right back on track.

Time alloted for our books is until the end of march. Planning to go back to Bookay Ukay on April, just before the summer class starts. I'm so stoked already! Can't wait!

You leave me no choice.

"Dear Education student council, ANG GULO NIYO!"

Some status I had yesterday. Who would have thought that "this" can cost me people talking behind my back?

I'm sorry if you were offended or anything, I am just exercising my freedom of speech. I had to. Things are really messy in our college right now. Announcements delivered are not clearly stated. Different infos about a certain event are sent to the students, which particularly made it all confusing.

I'm not saying that you guys are not effective, I'm just saying that we are all in chaos. You lead us, but in a chaotic way. So what happens to us? Right. Chaos also.

We also understand that we are all busy for the campaign and election, but please you will not enter this kind of situation if you cannot surpass it.

Many agreed with me, I guess, based on the number of likes that "that" status had. I guess I'm not the only one who's feeling the same way.

We believe in you. That's why we voted for you a year ago to stand up as our leaders. Now it's time for you to prove us right.

Now, just this afternoon, someone told me that "my name" is a kinda the talk-of-the-town together with "that" status.

Oh well. Who cares. I don't care. I just wanna express what I see.

Sorry if I have offended you. I didn't mean to. I just want to clean-cut myself.

Still friends everyone? Peace out.

This is not a hate-blog or something. I'm just pointing out my side behind this current issue. And I don't want this to affect my social relationship with other people. Please and thank you.

Study and Starbucks

Seriously people, how can you study in Starbucks?

It's a public area and kinda noisy. What does Starbucks have that makes you study that the library do not have?

Answer me? Go on.

I'm currently in Starbucks Quezon Ave just chillin' on a Friday night. And observed that Filipinos loved studying in Starbucks.

Just sayin'.

Weekends Never End!

"What makes you super excited about the weekends?"

Besides from not having school, no boring class discussions, no waking up early, no quizzes to study the night ahead and no homeworks to be done, there are a lot of reasons why I love weekends!

I get to hang-out with my friends right after school on Fridays! Knowing that there's no school the next day. Hurah!

I can sing at the top of my lungs without worrying about my homeworks.

I can play volleyball/football and be sweaty without thinking about school.

I can play my guitar until my fingers hurt.

I can watch movies all day! With my collection of almost a hundred of movies, I can stay up all day and all night watching them. Simply means, movie marathon!

I can PARTY ALL NIGHT LONG! Knowing that I don't have school the next day, I can stay up all night dancing and drinking!

And of course, I can stay in front of the computer all day and all night! Surfing the net all daaay feels so gooooooood! 

TADAAA! There's tons of things to do during the weekends. 2-day weekend is never enough to do all these things.

Sunday Mass. Don't forget to go to the church every Sunday!

Excited much? I AM!!!
