Tried a different sport that looks exciting...Archery! Haven't really heard much about this sport other than Robin Hood and a few historical movies but it caught my eye when I saw a coupon from Metrodeal. The deal was P300 instead of P600 for a one hour session of archery.

My Robin Hood impression
The range we went to was called Gandiva Archery it's located near Megamall in the 7th floor of One Corporate Center. The place is open on Monday to Sunday 9AM to 6PM (I think). It was the first time I ever held a bow and arrow and felt pretty excited. I wanted to hit the bull's eye during my first few tries, but beginner's luck wasn't on my side since I didn't even hit the target area haha

Not bad eh?

Started hitting the target area after several tries.

Almost bull's eye

The best shot I had (of course I removed the errant arrows).

Not bad for a rookie archer. Archery is a fun sport to try but the equipment costs an arm and a leg. It's one expensive hobby. The starter bow costs P14,000 without any arrows and the bows for competition and advanced archers hits P30,000+++ so if you really love this sport you'll have to dole out a lot of cash. Gandiva also offers lessons for P8,000 (includes annual membership fee of P2,000) and an annual membership of P2,000. For members you only pay P350 for using the equipment and facilities. 

I think archery is one of those sports that the Philippines can actually excel in. No height requirement only practice and a sharp eye. I'm seriously considering this sport in the future for now I'll just pretend to be Robin Hood.

Xoi Vietnamese Kitchen

Found a coupon from Metrodeal that led me to this little resto in Megamall Atrium A. Its called Xoi Vietnamese Kitchen,

Xoi Vietnamese Kitchen

The deal was for only P99 for specific chicken, seafood, pork, and beef meals. The food looks good but I'm not exactly a food expert so expect to hear comments such as good, delicious, and nothing more. As far as I know the food was good for a discounted price of P99!

Beef Meal Vietnamese style!

The food was good because I didn't pay the whole price of P150+++. My tongue couldn't differentiate the taste of the beef but as far as I know it was good HAHA. The food ranged from P150+++ which is ok.

Tokyo Cafe

The fam and I decided to eat at this restaurant called Tokyo Cafe in SM The Block. I capitalized on discount coupons I bought from CashCashPinoy. The coupons gave us 50% off on the meals that the restaurant pre-selected for the promo. The meals were the usual kind offered by most Japanese restaurants.


The meals without the coupon cost P250 each. The deal gave us 6 meals for the price of 3. Which was a pretty good deal by any means based on the price of the food at the restaurant. The average meal in the restaurant ranged from P130-P250. Hefty price for an OK kind of meal.



Some of the comments about the meals were that the pork was a little too salty for its own good. I ordered the chicken which was ok. I'm not exactly a food connoisseur so I'm not quite sure what to say. I'm not really a fussy eater but for 50% off I'd taste anything.
