Wrong Wrong

Sometimes, my eyes notice so many things.

Here are a few:

Hmm... convenient store, guests' can bring, etc.

Eto naman:  Kapag offline daw, ibig sabihin nilalagyan ng laman. Pag ito ang atm sa opisina, ibig sabihin, su-sweldo na!!!

Ayun oh, buy 1 take 1 ORIO mini!!!

Eto naman ang body trats.

No violent reaction please. Napansin ko lang yan. Wala naman akong sinasabi diba? :D

Been thinking of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts for weeks but never found the time to go to a store neraby, so I just fantasized about eating one. Then I read the SM Supermalls is bringing back its "Download & Win" in-app mobile game. It is also sweeter the second time around since it has tied up with Krispy Kreme Doughnuts & Coffee. It is now giving away Three (3) boxes of Original Glazed® Krispy Kreme doughnuts EACH to 100 unique SM Supermalls mobile app registered users everyday from April 30 to June 30, 2016.


Here's a little something about this SM Supermalls and Krispy Kreme perfect combination:

"Embedded within the SM Supermalls Mobile App, "Download & Win" was the first digital scratch card promotion in the country. Its launch during SM Supermalls' 30th Anniversary was marked with the giving away of exciting prizes such as free mobile date, free Spotify, Facebook, Games, unli-Call and Unli-Text everyday for the entire month of March."

The Supreme Court Library during Trick or Treat last year
I love libraries! I like the silence that's innate in libraries and the fact that people go there to read, or sometimes sleep, or think. I like the smell of books in the library but I don't like the usual stern faces of librarians. Our librarian in high school was a cool guy - I just forgot his name (memory gap) but he's one of the nicest librarians I have ever met. He formed the SLAG in our school - Student Library Assistants Group (or something like that, again, memory gap- that was about 23 years ago so cut me some slack! Hahahh!)

Growing up, going to the mall means visiting National Bookstore and checking out the books for sale there. It's not really browsing the shops for dresses and shoes, but checking out the items in the bookstore. In college, one of my favorite hang-outs was Book Sale.

A Visit to Balanga, Bataan

I am so thankful that my work has allowed me to mix business with pleasure- so that means, I get to visit new places sometimes.  Last year, work brought me to Balanga, Bataan, a very beautiful city. We stayed at the Plaza Hotel which is located at the Plaza Mayor de Ciudad de Balanga. To the right of the Plaza Hotel is the City Hall, right across it is the St. Joseph Cathedral, and on the left of the hotel is a Mall which was designed like a colonial Spanish architecture to keep up with the "old-world" charm of the place. I heard there is an existing city ordinance for this.

Anyways, here are some pictures.

I wish we could have stayed longer in Bataan. But since we came there for work, we couldn't really just lie down, go around the town, learn more about its place in Philippine History and enjoy its culture. 

I would surely go back to Balanga and the other nearby towns/cities of Bataan. Soon, I hope.
