Would You Read A Book on Buqo?

For Pinoy bibliophiles, buqo has just given you a reason to read more local books and magazines. Buqo is a digital bookstore, newsstand and reader, all in one app. If you’re familiar with e-reader apps like Nook and Kindle  and their counterpart e-commerce websites Barnes and Noble and Amazon, this Pinoy version works basically in a similar manner. Except that this version chooses to sell local content, carrying all-Filipino content written in English and Filipino. This app is a collaboration between Hand Interactive, a Summit Media company, and Ookbee, developer of the number one e-bookstore app in Thailand.

Popular titles such as Pol Medina’s Pugad Baboy, Bo Sanchez’s Shepherd’s Voice books, Precious Hearts Romances, Summit Media, and Adarna Children’s books, are already in its fold. … Continue Reading →

Summer Clay Workshop For Kids at the Met Museum

If your kids are stuck at home for the whole summer, why not let them try something new for a change?
The Metropolitan Museum of Manila offers an artful family bonding activity this summer! In line with the museum’s “Abueva: The Power of Form” exhibition, the Met features its Summer Clay workshop, a hands-on clay workshop where you and your child can discover and learn the basics of sculpting through clay molding. It would be so much fun to learn together how to make handmade figurines and functional objects.
The workshop will be held on May 3 and 17 at the MetLab.
To pre-register, please log on to bit.do/metclayws. For more details you may email Sabrina at info@metmuseu.ph or like our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/metmanila.

Life’s A Beach

Summer’s here.
We long for the beach with its endless sand and sea.
We wish we could just forget about work and play endlessly.
We wish we could stretch the day and our energy to have fun with family and friends.
Would you want to be in a remote, empty beach where you could meditate peacefully and marvel at nature’s simple beauty?
Or would you want something like the sunny isles real estate at this site where you’re still near the mad bustle of the city?
Just go and travel somewhere far.
Enjoy summer while it’s here, for pretty soon it’ll be over.
And you would have wondered again why you didn’t go someplace else other than your usual city haunts.
