made it

Happy to have successfully hosted a Friendsgiving! -Main goal being to introduce our good friends to our other good friends. And bonding with our friends that are “family” to us before everybody gets too busy with the holiday season.

I am happy to note that everybody “mixed” well! 

But due to my being busy having too much fun, I only have two measly photos. (sorry, no posting as both photos are group photos) It was a whole day of feast and games.

With a bit of twist into the traditional thanksgiving menu we came up with this. 

kkklkmnnmnm,

As you can see this was a group thing. -On the bottom is our house logo. Yes, it is really meant to echo Pancake House! as our “loveteam name” sounds like pancake. 

That was our spread. We also played quite a lot of monopoly deal.

Right after lunch we played monopoly deal all the way till 7. Only stopping to have snacks, wine and coffee. There were a lot of laughs, stories and friendly banter.

We also had a new game to add to our game collection, care of our friend Stephen.

While we never played it yet, this will be a good game to play on the next “game day” at home.

Thankful to have a “wonderful family of friends” to be with us in our lives. We sure are blessed.

pop friday

I was chatting up with a friend of mine (Kristoff) when I noticed a bb8 figure sitting on his desk. I immediately asked about it and found out that he is also into funko pops! So we chatted some more and shared our pop wishlist /pops we think are awesome/what we like to have..etc. the chat lasted more than an hour. And pops have been cropping up on our conversation each time we got a chance to talk.

We talk about our own pops and where we got them. Recommended stores and stores that are overpriced, other friends that also collects pops…stuff like that.

This collection is NOT mine, I just found the photo on the internet

Today, he declared that it was a Pop Friday. I liked the sound of that. Apparently he is hunting for funko pops (online) today. Some of what he likes are unknown to me. He knows what I wanted to collect GOT and Marvel. –he doesn’t watch GOT. So mostly we agree on marvel and some awesome looking stuff from Star Wars, some exclusive expensive piece or DC.

These are the pops Kristoff is looking for

Also online Kei and I are hunting for a toy box subscription. And promptly managed to secure one. The wait begins.

we are on a pre-order list for Spiderman. Kei

we are on a pre-order list for Spiderman. Kei loves Spidey.

As for me, I am just happy if I can find some of the older Game of Thrones funko pops. I regret not getting into the toys earlier. Most of what I wanted is not available in stores or if I do find one it is very much overpriced. Any ideas? leads or help would be very much appreciated.

How I wish pops are cheap or free or readily available. Kei and I am even lemming for a nice shelf to “house” my (very) few pops and some of our books. Crazy, I know.

We don't have Ikea in the Philippines, but this bookcase is sure pretty! My dream bookcase-photo from the internet

A happy geeky home must have happy looking toys on display. Am I right?! Maybe someday I get a shelf full of toys.

Fingers crossed I get to find pops that I am looking for to fill my imaginary shelf. Off to a geeky weekend toy hunt. 

Enjoy the weekend everyone!
