Today was the first day of our 6 day “long weekend”. I made plans to make the most out of this Tuesday doing nonwork stuff and I was quite productive! I got to do things I actually enjoy.
I caught the last day of the Cinema One Originals, a local independent film festival. I’ve been a fan for a few years. The three films I watched this year were all pretty special (Baka Siguro Yata, Miss Bulalacao, Manang Biring).
Just outside the cinemas were shelves of bargain books. I went crazy and bought 8 — 5 of which are hardbound! These are exactly the things that excite me and would go out of the house on a holiday for: independent films and books on sale!
Cool find: Tucked inside one of the books (Zadie Smith’s) was a plane boarding pass from 2007. Secondhand books are awesome!
