K.D. Absolutely (oldkd) | 6065 comments Excited na. Ortigas ba naman hak hak.


Angus (angusmiranda) | 4337 comments Guys, vegan food dito, pero nung nag-order kami, hindi namin naramdaman na walang karne yung pizza at pasta.

About the archery thing, si Maria na ang mag-eexplain. Mahaba-habang paliwanagan ito, hehehe.

Actually, I have this companion book of LoTR that has a recipe of the lembas (Elven) bread. Maybe something of the sort can be made by our resident bakers here. *eyes Tina and DC* Haha! :D

Ibalot na lang natin sa dahon ng pandan. ^_^


kwesi 章英狮 (kwesifriends) | 2752 comments Magdadala ako nung hat na elven. Haha.

Maria (mariasm) | 2441 comments Hi guys! Sorry for the late post. :D



Date: June 23, 2012
Time: 3PM-6PM
Location: Gandiva Cafe

Address: 7/F One Corporate Center Building, Julia Vargas Ave. cor. Meralco Ave., Pasig City. It's across CALTEX gas station, seven blocks from SM Megamall. One can walk from Megamall to the building.

*****

Notes:

1. Please confirm your F2F attendance in this thread.

2. We are reserved at Gandiva Cafe for 3 hours, consumable of P5,000. Food is good, and i think the pizza there is affordable.

3. Please come on time at 3pm. I want to give those who are usually punctual their time's worth. So, we will start at exactly 3pm. I will be at Gandiva Cafe at 2.30pm.

DISCUSSION ACTIVITY

The power of myth is very strong in Tolkien's works. According to Sparknotes, one of the conventions of myth is that it describes a past that is more glorious than the present.

Also, the characters will burst into songs, either of joy or lament, throughout this whole book.

I only need a VERSE from a song (any song) that best describes one moment from your past, whether good or bad. :)

PM me your verses until next Monday, June 11.

*****

SIDE ACTIVITY

1. If you want to try archery, it will cost P600/hour. Inclusive of equipment rental plus instructor. You have to inform me through this thread if you're in, so we can reserve a lane for us. 6-7pm sounds good? Ang sabi nung instructor, mas onti ang tao pag gabi.

2. There is another option: For 3 hours, we can have both the archery range plus food, for P1,000 per head. If 10 persons have a go at this, we can avail this option. Although ang concern nga namin ni Chami ay ung 3 hours is both for archery and eating na. so baka mag-suffer naman ung discussion. So this one's a No-No. Agree? I find it too expensive din kasi.

3. Chami, Po, and I were given 6 trial shots. Mahirap pero masaya naman. So, i think 1 hour of archery is too much for us beginners? We asked if 2 persons can share the 1 hour, not allowed daw.

4. Reminder: the archery is just a side activity for our F2F. The discussion is still the priority so we encourage you to attend both, if possible.

Sounds fun? :D

We welcome comments, suggestions, recommendations, but not VIOLENT REACTIONS. lol
’And now’, said the wizard, turning back to Frodo, ‘the decision lies with you.’

Maria: confirming! :)

K.D. Absolutely (oldkd) | 6065 comments Maria: I'm in!!!

Ayoko ng archery. Kakain na lang ako hak hak. Hobbit ako eh. Di naman ako elf. Sword pede pa or yong ax ni Gimli. hak hak.

K.D. Absolutely (oldkd) | 6065 comments Caltex nga yon. Doon ang meeting place going to Alabat. Across noon ang building kung saan naroon ang Gandiva. I should know. Doon ako nagpapagasolina kung umaga nag-blink ang lights hak hak. Kaso, may pagka-tamad ang mga gasoline boys doon. Or parang kulang sila so matagal ang pila at minsan parang sinasadyang di ka pansinin.


message 18: by Rollie (new) - added it

Rollie (zheick) | 2098 comments Haha. Caltex lang nakita ko eh. KD, ireklamo mo. Haha!

Edited!


kwesi 章英狮 (kwesifriends) | 2752 comments I'm in pero di ako marunong pumunta diyan. Pwede sumabay sayo Maria sa 2:30?


message 21: by K.D. (new) - rated it 5 stars

K.D. Absolutely (oldkd) | 6065 comments Kwesi, sumabay ka na lang saken. Kung 3 p.m. ito, dapat umalis tayo ng 2:00 p.m. sa Waltermart Munoz. Kita tayo roon ng 1:30 p.m.?


message 22: by Charles (new)

Charles | 156 comments Hi Maria,

Is this the building beside Antel (which has BPI bank at the ground floor)?


Bennard | 730 comments I hope I'm free this day so that I can attend my first F2F.:)


kwesi 章英狮 (kwesifriends) | 2752 comments @Kuya D: Ay sige! Mas malapit at maaga, sabay na lang tayo sa Waltermart Munoz. Haha.


Angus (angusmiranda) | 4337 comments Ay sorry, I thought Petron siya, hehe. I'm confirming my attendance na rin. Sino maggogora sa archery?


kwesi 章英狮 (kwesifriends) | 2752 comments Ito lang masasabi ko, namamahalan ako dun sa archery na yan. Peor kung madami kayo, baka sasali ako. Haha.

Same here. Mabilis ako ma peer pressure eh haha! Or depende lang sa magagastos ko sa food that day. :)


kwesi 章英狮 (kwesifriends) | 2752 comments Haha. Wala na bang bababa diyan? Sabihan nating madami tayo. Bwahaha.


Louize (thepagewalker) | 1830 comments I'm in.
Yes, tama si Kwesi, the archery is too expensive - to think that we are just going to try pa lang.
Sana may group package. *hoping* :D


Alexa (codenameblue) | 935 comments G din akech! Hindi na lang ako kakain for a couple of days jk


message 31: by Angus (last edited Jun 04, 2012 08:37PM) (new) - rated it 3 stars

Angus (angusmiranda) | 4337 comments Yung group package kasi ay minimum of 10 people, 1k per head. That's inclusive of food and 3 hours of archery. Magsasawa ka na rito, malamang. Yung 6 trial shots ay medyo masakit na sa daliri (when drawing and releasing the bow string), kaya it's possible na mabalian ka ng daliri in 3 hours (exaggerating lang, hehe).

We tried to haggle, like bow-sharing, or 300 for 30 mins, pero ayaw nila. Kasi marami namang nagpapana kaya dedma lang sila sa amin.

Anyway, ang original plan ko sana ay 2-3 PM na ako magpana para chill na lang ako after the discussion. Pero kung may willing (not pressured) na magtry on 6 PM, dun na rin ako.


message 32: by Rollie (new) - added it

Rollie (zheick) | 2098 comments 1000 for 3 hours. O.O


message 33: by Tina (new) - rated it 5 stars

Tina (tinamats) | 2665 comments 1000 per head. O_o In fairview may food naman pero mahal talaga. Magkaka-Katniss skills na kaya tayo after nung 600? Haha.


Angus (angusmiranda) | 4337 comments I know it's expensive, kaya we didn't really bother with it. For willing participants only, like Kwesi (hahaha!). Pero baka magka-Katniss skills in 6 shots. Quite unlikely, but I scored a near bull's eye with my last trial shot.

From their website:

In the Philippines, archery is known as a sport for elites. This notion is what Gandiva is trying to eradicate by reaching out to the grass roots.

Eh di sana babaan niyo ang presyo niyo!


message 35: by Rollie (new) - added it

Rollie (zheick) | 2098 comments Mahal no? :D Kung Laser Tag yan siguro nagkaroon na ako ng pag-asa magRANK 1 sa 1000 ko. Haha.


kwesi 章英狮 (kwesifriends) | 2752 comments Talo ka pa rin Rollie. Haha.

@Angus: Hindi ko nga gusto kasi mahal pero kung madami sasali ako. Haha. Ito naman, ako na naman ang binanggit.


message 37: by K.D. (new) - rated it 5 stars

K.D. Absolutely (oldkd) | 6065 comments Di ko talaga type ang archery! Ikain ko na lang ang P1,000.

Agree!

Yes po. One Corporate Center ung name ng building.


Maria (mariasm) | 2441 comments Ang sabi nga ni Chami, mag trial shots na lang tayo lahat, since kakain naman tayo dun db. LOL

Believe me, you'll think twice na mag-archery for an hour, after ng 6 trial shots mo! Sakit sa daliri ung strings! pero enjoy naman nga tlg.

Pero kung bet mo tlg, then Gora ka sa P600/hr.


message 41: by Rollie (new) - added it

Rollie (zheick) | 2098 comments Kwesi: Malay natin. Haha.

Guys, may nagtatanong pals if may malapit na parking lot sa venue. :)


message 42: by K.D. (new) - rated it 5 stars

K.D. Absolutely (oldkd) | 6065 comments Meron doon sa may textite. Masakit lang nga sa bulsa hak hak.

Yong manggagaling sa Pasig, meron FX na dumadaan sa may simbahan (malapit sa City Hall). Yong biyaheng Robinson's-Megamall. Dumadaan yon sa may textite. Harap (or likod) ng building na yan. I should know, kasi pag may GR friend akong nag-mail sa office address ko, dyan ako sumasakay dahil di ko alam may drive sa Pasig hak hak.


message 43: by Charles (new)

Charles | 156 comments May parking din two "buidings" away :) Alam ko dahil dati akong nagtratrabaho diyan.

Tama si KD. May FX sa may Robinsons at Mega Mall. Sabihin niyo lang Antel at ibaba kayo sa likod ng building.


message 44: by Rollie (new) - added it

Rollie (zheick) | 2098 comments Haha. Thanks. Parang malayo ang tektite. Haha.


message 45: by K.D. (last edited Jun 04, 2012 11:53PM) (new) - rated it 5 stars

K.D. Absolutely (oldkd) | 6065 comments Malapit yan. Magkatabi lang. Walking distance. Mayroon ngang 7-11 dyan sa likod. I should know. Kasi katabi nyang ang bank na ginagamit ng company namin. Ang pinaka-sakripisyo nyo ay maglakad from Mega to the venue. Pero may FX dyan para sa mga tamad maglakad. Yong biyaheng Pasig!!!


message 46: by Rollie (new) - added it

Rollie (zheick) | 2098 comments Yep kasi pumunta na ako dati sa Tektite at sumakay ako ng FX. :D


message 47: by Tina (new) - rated it 5 stars

Tina (tinamats) | 2665 comments I think nalakad ko na yan before, on the way to my birthday sa MC Home Depot. Iba nga lang tatawiran. Malayo, pero siguro kung may kasabay maglakad keri lang :)


Angus (angusmiranda) | 4337 comments Naglakad lang kami nina Chami at Po noon. Take note, 7F ang cafe ha, wala lang, baka kasi may maghanap sa immediate surroundings, hindi talaga makikita.


message 49: by Tina (new) - rated it 5 stars

Tina (tinamats) | 2665 comments Isipin na lang natin quest din yung lakad. :p haha. Wag lang umulan :))


Angus (angusmiranda) | 4337 comments Better yet, magdala ng bow and arrow payong, ang maaasahang sandata at kalasag sa mga araw na ito.
