Giftable Books

If you still haven’t decided what to gift a couple of friends, a good book might be a good idea. Not only is it useful but it can entertain or broaden the minds of people. Here are books you can avail at Lazada.

Naermyth (Paperback) –Php 250


The world ended. It was not because of a comet, prophecy, natural disaster, or whatever garbage foretold on the internet, but because every myth ever written turned out to be an account of historical fact. These monsters we’ve read about as children waged a war that lead to the human race’s downfall. And the unlucky who survived are hunted down or, worse, tortured.

In these dark times, people could only turn to the Shepherd for help. I am one such Shepherd and I thought my only task was to protect the few humans who still thrived on this desolate world. But when I rescued Dorian from Dwende captivity, I discovered that not only is he the most dangerous thing to have around, but he could be our one hope for redemption. I now find myself protecting a born killer, but in doing so, I’m turning my back on everything human.

Halo (Paperback) – Php 515



Three angels are sent by Heaven to bring good to a world falling under the influence of darkness: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, the youngest and most human. They work hard to conceal their luminous glow, their superhuman powers, and their wings. Then Bethany meets Xavier Woods, and they are unable to resist their attraction to each other. But the angels’ mission is urgent, and dark forces are threatening. Will love ruin Bethany or save her?

Paper Towns (Paperback) – P395

Who is the real Margo?

Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life—dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows.

After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. She has disappeared. Q soon learns that there are clues in her disappearance—and they are for him.

Trailing Margo’s disconnected path across the USA, the closer Q gets, the less sure he is of who he is looking for.

Awesome Things to Do While In The Pool

Most people prefer the beach over swimming pools. Why? Because it’s less boring at the beach. Well if you want to do more in the pool rather than lounging beside it or taking a couple of laps, here are some ideas that you might want to try.

Practice Tumble Turn

If the pool is deep enough, you can practice this so that you would have a much easier interval for doing another lap during your exercise.


Beach volleyball is fun but have you tried it in the water? Inflatable nets can be bought and it’s fun since the water adds to the challenge when you try to catch the ball. You can share  a couple of laughs, too, whenever you sink into the water for attempting to catch the ball.

Reverse Swim

You know how you try to swim underwater by releasing a few air? When you almost touch the bottom of the pool because you really swim under? Try doing it reverse. Release a couple of air and face upwards. You’ll either see yourself or see above the water. You can “lie” down on the bottom of the pool, too.
