In a couple of days, we’ll be moving out to our bustling yet lively environment of Makati and transferring to… well to another area in Ortigas, which shares the same setting as Makati.
Last weekend, I pullout 4 boxes with all of our things, with more than 300 video game cartridges which the majority of these carts are Famicom games. Moving these boxes is a challenge and I kinda wish that my husband is here to help me but he has to accomplish getting his license in the US before returning here.
At the beginning of May, my family and I returned to South Korea and revisited Seoul for the fourth time in which we stayed for almost a week. So why did we revisit Seoul yet again? — The original reason was to see a concert which unfortunately ended up getting canceled, thus we planned an entirely different set of goals for the trip, as Jacob (my SO) wanted to do some game arcade-hopping around Seoul, have a quick meet up with a friend, as well as a little bit of street food-tripping in Myeongdong.
Despite the early-Summer forecast on that week, surprisingly the weather there was a bit cold, feeling akin to early Spring weather, especially at night time, unlike here in the Philippines where it has been blazing hot and humid all day for the past two months.
February 22 and 23 was a trip back in time to relive nostalgic memories as we went to the first annual Retro Gaming Expo at Fisher Mall, QC. This is a two-day event filled with game merchandise and goodies, cosplay, casual play and quick tournaments showcasing everything retro game-themed.
Bear in mind that retro gaming is already a thing here in the Philippines, but it seems that it only started to garner more attention and popularity in recent times, perhaps due to Millennials now having more time and money to buy stuff and do more of what they’ve loved since childhood. That said, it is still a good thing.
