Talecraft, Dom, Hoovenson & Spro

I have been looking for Talecraft, the card deck for story tellers and writers since summer. A co-teacher tried to find it in Metro Manila to no avail. Out of Stock!

So when I recently googled it, I was led to Dom Cimafranca's blogpost on Talecraft. I posted a comment asking him if it was available in Davao City. And it was! And Dom sells them! Yay!!!

So on August 10, he told me more about Talecraft, introduced me to Hoovenson Haw who owns Spro Cafe where we met and other cafe habitues.

It was a fun night even if I was initially oblivious to the java/wifi-charged ambience and of Spro. The following week, I tried the Cafe Amerikano (which Hoovenson recommended to lactose-intolerant moi) and liked it.

I felt instantly at ease with fellow Tsinoys Dom and Hoovenson who, like me, love books and movies.

As I am trying to cut down on smoking, methinks I now have the next addiction to feed: coffee!

Always a happy day to meet a fellow book lover.

Hah! Coffee isnot a good substitute for smoking. Yo know why? they go well together. The same thing that happened to me when I tried to replace smoking with candy. I was doing okay until I tried smoking with a candy in my mouth. It was heaven. What happened was, I couldn't smoke if I didn't have candy. so ayun, nadagdagan pa bisyo ko.
