It is a way to bond with our friends and family and it has even become a source of income and job through professional e-sports and game development. This year, we are bringing gamers of all ages under one roof as we gather together for a celebration of one of the biggest gaming convention in the country.

Roald Dahl classics
I wanted to get new copies of Dahl children’s classics for my kid to get to know and build interest with Dahl’s other witty, chilling stories aside from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Teen books
My 9-year old chooses these titles; she suddenly doesn’t like series from Thea Stilton, Geronimo Stilton, Creepela Von Cacklefur instead switched to teeny strong stories like Hunger Games, Mockingjay and Percy Jackson chronicles.

We got hold of Allegiant (P385), Ender’s Shadow (P275) and The School of Good and Evil (P215).

The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis and other classic books
The Horse and His Boy (P225), Brian Hunt (P145) is available at P20 each, just imagine we did saved a lot. Not to mention the other books we bought for Christmas giveaways.

The Craft Box Party
September 19-20, 2015
Pergola Mall, BF Homes, Paranaque City


Back in high school we have this elective subject (and I’m sure you had those creepy times too!) I would end up with Arts and crafts (for the record I chose the moderator who gives praises…ehem! more often but stricter in a sense they convinced me they’re good enough.) Most of the girls joined the nail polish/hair perming/brow threading thing and some of course the baking thing (which is now coined as part of “culinary”). If only they knew I’m not fond of merthiolate tinted nails neither washing the aftermath of baking. So together with the other geeks we are in our own little space of toying with arts and crafts. Until now, that fondness grew into gathering Do-It-Yourself as possibly whenever there’s a calling. Lucky are the crafters of today, we have accessed on ideas/materials over the internet (YouTube, instagram, etsy, pinterest, etc.) all they need to know and to have is some patience and not so extra skill… everything can be learned thru online tutorials unless otherwise you are people-oriented and you wanted somebody to assist you, guide you, and bluff with you. So there are workshops to begin with, I have found one where you can ignite your tinkering abilities. 🙂

Summer Activities For Kids this 2015

UPDATED: April 6, 2015

Hey parents! Spend your kid’s summer with worthwhile activities, please set aside excessive plays with your pre-approved hand-held devices. No those gadgets like ipads, tablets, xbox won’t add up knowledge during the development stage they’re at it now. You’ve seen how Steve Jobs and his crew managed to educate their children. They were not allowed to get hooked on consumer gadgets their parents invented, why not? Because the key to educate children depends on the architectural process. How kids absorbed ideas, recreate ideas or come up with an idea of their OWN that isn’t fed by technology made by adults ahead of them. Instead the children are engage in building concepts through orientation with objects, with people and their surroundings.

We’ve compiled 2015 summer activities and programs to engage your child with meaningful play and vacation. Here’s a list we have gathered, we will update the lists from time to time. Note that starting this year we wont include workshops from fast-food establishments and the likes. The 2015 list wanted to focus more on workshops about arts and interesting  activities.
