The recently opened Venture Capital Cafe (VCC) has been on our to-do list for quite some time. How could it not? They have a life-sized Gundam welcoming customers by their front door along Dela Costa street.
VCC has ample floor space and a wide entertainment selection that includes two large television screens, two PlayStation 4’s, a personal computer, an aquarium, and a bookshelf, just to name a few.
Overall, we had a really good time. My son was even able to try out the open world racing game called Need for Speed: Most Wanted(2012) on their PC. Racing games really aren’t my thing but its soundtrack certainly grew on me. I’ve included the track list below courtesy of www.nfssoundtrack.com.
UPDATE: Due to the Malacanang’s work suspension announcement for the 30th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit on April 27 and 28, 2017 we will be moving our talk entitled, “Diagnostic Statistical Manual V: What psychologists, counselors, and mental health practitioners need to know with Dr. Ma.

After seeing commercials of it on the Nickelodeon channel, my son said to his mom, “Mama, I want to get three tickets. One for me. One for Mama. One for Dada.”
Next thing we knew, we were at McKinley West, Taguig City, Philippines for the Nickelodeon Slime Cup Run 2017! As 4K double loop run participants, we were literally among the first to break out of the starting group and make our way to through several obstacles in the course.
By the time it was all said and done[i], my son entered the confines of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (TMNT) inspired slime machine where he got to experience what Peter Venkman felt when Slimer slimed him for the very first time!
I almost forgot. In addition to the two Takara Tomy Arts Super Figure Collection Grendizer UFO Gashapons that I lucked out in getting yesterday, I also picked up a couple of used discs: Hall & Oates’ Rock n’ Soul Part 1[i] and Spyro Gyra’s first live album entitled, Access All Areas. These albums were without […]
Back in the early 90’s, Compact Discs (CD) were the thing! A literal upgrade in quality from the bulky Vinyl, 8-track, and cassette tapes. It was the only way to get music back then as digital downloads were still in its infancy. CD’s also had a long lifespan–unless you left them under direct sunlight–and were reported to be good for a couple of thousand plays before encountering any problems.
Here is the latest batch of discs that I picked up:
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)

For those of you who may be too young or unaware of the history of CapWolf, it is a Captain America (Volume 1) story that ran for six issues (#402-#407) way back in 1992. The gist of the story: Captain America turns into a werwolf and dukes it out with Logan. After the dust settles, Cap manages to regain human form.
As a way to join in on the collective efforts of the comic book community, I have donated this original inked Superior page (Issue #4 | Page #15) and left it with the kind people of Druid’s Keep/DK Collectibles, Inc. over at their Fort branch.
Art by Leinil Francis Yu and inked by Gerry Alanguilan, Superior (2010) holds the Guinness Book of World Records for being the fastest comic ever produced as well as having the most number of creators working on a single comic.
Sir Gerry signed the piece at the Komikero Komiks Museum in San Pablo City on August 13, 2016, while Leinil added his signature during Free Comic Book Day 2017 at Filbar’s Megamall.
In an effort to provide the best possible service to patients, I believe that it is the professional responsibility of guidance counselors and psychologists to always update themselves with the latest developments in our field.
This May, the Philippine Guidance and Counseling Association (PGCA) provided practitioners with an opportunity to do just that when they held their 53rd Annual Conference (Theme: Advocating Change, Healing Lives) at the SMX Convention Center in the Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City.
