Odyssey's Blu-Ray Sale

Odyssey in Greenbelt 1 started a blu-ray and DVD sale last week. They had pretty nice deals where you can get 20% off on new releases, Php999 blu-ray titles, Php500 blu-ray titles and Php500 for 3 DVD titles.

Shad and I browsed through the Php500 titles because we're cheap like that. We were able to get some good ones!

The Rite Blu-RayTalladega Nights Blu-RayTriple X Blu-Ray, XXX Blu-RayThe Man with the Iron Fists Blu-RayKick-Ass 2 Blu-RayPredator Blu-RayRocky Blu-RayMortal Kombat Blu-RayThe Mummy Blu-RayThe Mummy Returns Blu-RayThe Mummy Tomb of the Dragon Emperor Blu-RayThe Craft Blu-Ray

In all, we got 12 blu-ray discs:

  1. The Rite
  2. Talladega Nights (This one's for Shad.)
  3. XXX (Triple X)
  4. The Man with the Iron Fists 
  5. Kick-Ass 2
  6. Predator
  7. Rocky
  8. Mortal Kombat
  9. The Mummy
  10. The Mummy Returns
  11. The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
  12. The Craft
Total: Php6,000. It's quite amusing however, that we had a bit of a story to tell when we bought these. The people from Odyssey only charged us Php5,000 for the 12 discs - which we found out after Shad and I returned to our offices. I counted the titles that they listed in the receipt and found that it was indeed 12 discs, meaning, they undercharged us.

I went back to the kiosk after office to ask them about the discrepancy and to pay for the balance.

The sales ladies were very much surprised when I told them that I was back to pay for the balance from their mistake. They thanked me profusely and thanked me more for saving their salaried from getting docked.

Ilan kaya cases na hindi na sinasauli mga ganito?

I found a new hobby

I've always been fond of bracelets and whenever I travel, I always try and look for pretty bracelets at pretty prices. I can usually find bracelets that are sold for as little as 20 pesos each but definitely not locally. I've never found anyone selling the kind of bracelets that I want for that price.

Since I had a lot of time this week, I decided to try my hand at making friendship bracelets and other related stuff. 

My first project involved my earphones. 

I was able to find a stall that sold rubber springs. I bought 4, cut them smaller and patiently wound them around the bottom part of my earphones. 

I alternated colors and used colorless nail polish to stick them together. 

Next was for each earphone stem. I cut strings three times the length of the stem. 

I tied the strings just under the actual earphone and patiently wound through the entire cable. Since it was my first te doing this, the first cable took me more than an hour to complete. The second took me less than an hour as I've already established a way to do it more efficiently. Sanay na

Then I tried doing bracelets!

It's time consuming. I spend more than two hours completing one. Though I guess I'm still trying to get used to it and trying not to mess us my knots. The last bracelet i made was clean enough to wear!

I want to try other patterns as there are so many! I still have tomorrow free so I can concentrate on making more bracelets for me and whoever wants them from my family. 

But first... I need strings haha

I have a funny dog

I was browsing through unsorted pictures trying to organize them neatly into folders when I came upon these pictures.

Meet Obama (aka Bam, Bambam, Bama, Chewbama)

He's a Pomeranian. A BIG Pomeranian.

 He makes this face when he chews his food. Any food. It's like he doesn't really enjoy whatever he's eating.
Yet he goes back to eating whatever it is, nonetheless.
