Went back to Starbucks earlier this evening with plans of putting the finishing touches on a book that I am currently doing with the immensely talented Randy Valiente.

Toy Review: Disney Pixar Cars 3 Die-Cast Mini Racers [Series 1] and my initial foray into the world of Podcasting (July 23, 2017)

Audio 001 – Toy Review: Disney Pixar Cars 3 Die-Cast Mini Racers [Series 1]

Last July 17, 2017, the family and I caught a late afternoon showing of Cars 3[i] before proceeding to a nearby department store in order to check out some of their Disney Pixar Cars 3 merchandise on display.

Strategically displayed by the escalator, there was a host of Cars 3 eye candy.  But the one that caught my eye was the Series 1 Disney Pixar Cars 3 Die-Cast Mini Racers.  These blind bag items retailed for about P149.50 so I decided to pick up a couple of bags for this review.[ii]

Here is my YouTube channel video review:[iii] Continue reading “Toy Review: Disney Pixar Cars 3 Die-Cast Mini Racers [Series 1] and my initial foray into the world of Podcasting (July 23, 2017)”

LlaoLlao: My new go-to frozen yogurt (July 16, 2017)

 

Our LlaoLlao frozen yogurt run the day before[i] was so amazing that my Mom and I decided to go for an encore today–this time at their Megamall branch.

An added incentive for going back was LlaoLlao’s signature green spoons which I plan on collecting and reusing. Continue reading “LlaoLlao: My new go-to frozen yogurt (July 16, 2017)”
