high-tech bookworm: kindle

Published October 20, 2012 by ladyemelye

ever since i can remember, i’ve always been a bookworm.  i love reading books.  as a child, i had a collection of children’s books which included fairy tales, bible stories and those about animals.  i even had my own picture dictionary.  when i started school, this continued, especially during high school when we had a lot of pocket books at the library which one could borrow.  i read nancy drew, r.l. stine fear street series, sweeti valley high and other young adult books.  i even collected the sabrina, the teenage witch pocketbook series which i still have until now.

i am not particular with regards to the genre of the books i have read.  i could almost read anything.

that is why one of the gadgets that i really appreciate is my amazon kindle wi-fi.  hubby actually bought it so that he could read his pdf books, but since it’s arrival it can be said that i have claimed it. 😉

the device is very lightweight and it can carry lots of ebooks in it.  the interface is simple and easy to use, and the display uses “e-ink” that’s why it has the same appearance as a real book, plus there is no glare that would strain my eyes.  i have there at least 100 e-books, but i have barely nicked the memory capacity.  it is handy that i could just pull it out and continue on my reading anywhere, anytime.  i even bought a booklight so that i could read in our vehicle during the ride home.

although nothing beats the smell and feel of a new (or old) book, if you are a certified bookworm, this is certainly a good investment.  plus, you help save mother earth. 😉

let’s be friends on goodreads so that we can share the books that might be interesting. 🙂

cobo: awesome possibiliteas

Published October 14, 2012 by ladyemelye

last june 17 (i know… i have a lot of blog backlogs 😦 ) i got to try a milktea place along alabang-zapote road.  it was called Cobo: Awesome Possibiliteas.

for the drinks, they offered a lot of varieties: bubble burstea, bubble burst smoothies, cobo sea salt, sooosmoothy, premium pressoteas, krazee koffee, jello fruit tea and of course milk teas.

they also have snow cream and cobo crunch.  for the crunch these include taiwanese chicken (in various flavors) and taiwanese dimsum like kuchai dumplings, sharksfin and pork siomai.

drink prices range from Php 60.00 to Php 100.00 depending on the flavor and add ons that you choose.  snacks are Php 49.00 (dimsum) and Php 70.00 (chicken).

the dining area is cozy with a number of colorful chairs and tables.  one can hang out here, have a snack, meet with friends, plus they have free wi-fi. 😉

since i just had lunch when we stopped by this store, i opted to order one of the premium pressoteas.  i ordered the rose tie guanyin (16oz).  this also included pearl and cocochew.  you also have the option to change the sugar level based on your preference – extra mild, mild, average or intense.  you could also choose to substitute to coco sugar for an additional Php 15.00.

rose tie guanyin milk tea – Php 85.00

the drink had a nice, strong tea flavor to it, but unfortunately i was not able to taste the “rose” part.  i will go back here to try other drinks, and also the snacks.
