Books for Less (October 4)

Hi book lovers! As promised I'm adding another set of books to my ever-growing list of cheap but great finds. 

First off is Carrie Ryan's postapocalyptic romance, The Forest of Hands and Teeth. It is the first book of a zombie themed trilogy. For the review of the first book click here.

The book costs only P99.00 from National Book Store. You'll have to be fortunate to find these books on sale at NBS. 

Below is a screenshot from with the original selling price of TFOHAT. $7.98 is like P343.00 (if the exchange rate doesn't change) and that will save you P244.00! Now we're talking!

Next up is the second book following The Forest of Hands and Teeth, The Dead-Tossed Waves.

Same with The Forest of Hands and Teeth the book also costs P99.00

Which also means its price on Amazon is also the same. So you'll also save P244.00 :)

The next book on the list is The Scorch Trials by James Dashner. It's the second book of a trilogy (The Maze Runner series). At National Book Store the book costs P99.00 (on a book bargain basis).

The book also costs $7.98 on Amazon which means P244.00 savings! :)

Lastly is the international bestseller by Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of The Dog in the Night-Time. At National Book Store it costs P299.00.

At Book Sale (where everything is cheaper!!) the Hard Bound copy of the book costs P145.00, take note it's the Hard Bound copy compared to the Paper Back version (so it should be more expensive). Purchasing the book at Book Sale will make you P154.00 richer!


There will be more to come! Just you wait :)

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
