So what does a college instructor do right after grading? With Singapore just around January with my mom, I really couldn’t afford a huge vacation getaway. A staycation was all I needed, that is, go to some places in Manila and unwind with good company.
Tuesday was The Fort day. Had to catch the Da Vinci Exhibit at the Mind Museum.
My mom finally found the time to rummage through her bazillion things and give me my paternal uncle’s coin collection. I know very little about that side of the family. Knowledge about where my great grandparents’ provenance is murky at best– that they were born and raised in Spain, then moved to Manila through Mexico.
These coins really don’t have monetary value but I find it very fascinating that they have traveled quite a lot from the late 1800′s to 1950′s.
At the very least, now I know where my wanderlust comes from.
A little sense of boredom and a trip down memory lane.
So, my very first “google poetics”.
I was finally able to experience the recently opened SciFi Cafe at Robinson’s Galleria, with my friend treating me out for late lunch.
It certainly is for the geek/nerd at heart. While I can’t claim a badge, I am drawn towards science fiction since I read Ender’s Game (and all its subsequent books) and Asimov’s The Gods Themselves. So one can only imagine the thrill of eating in a place filled with SciFi figures and toys- a personal collection of the owner (some of which, customers are allowed to play with).
