Blindly Buy Books?

I have been subjected to impulse buys: that moment when I learned that a certain book existed and I have no idea if any other copy is available in that bookstore or any other bookstore and if I would risk the moment of leaving it behind, never seeing it again, and remembering not reading it at all. A number of books in my collection are good impulse buys, a few I even deem serendipitous. And the rest are rejects, regrets, and resentments.

This season's usual sight at the Planetarium

The Overlooked Star

The Planetarium is a gated structure that encloses a 16 meter (52 ft.) dome that lies just on the edge of the Rizal Park Complex facing the Intramuros, the Walled City. Plans for the country’s planetarium came from the Philippine Weather Bureau (now the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration) chief and Philippine Astronomical Society founder Maximo Sacro Jr. and were passed along to National Museum Director Godofredo Alcasid Sr., who gave it the budget of $100,000.00 from the Japanese Reparation Program.

To the beach!

To the Beach

It’s a free beach, which is why often people could be found there. While locals are the mostly content at the promenade or by the edge of the water, most visitors choose from a number of water sports, like surfing, kite surfing, skim boarding, jet skiing, and even fishing.
