Fujifilm X-A3: To buy or not to buy?

Have you ever had that lingering itch to buy something? For the last three weeks, I have. I was looking at the Apple Watch Series 2 but I decided it wasn’t really my style. I just got the super cheap Xiaomi Band 2. Now, I’ve been looking for a camera that will suit my needs as a blogger. The candidate: the Fujifilm X-A3.

See sample pics taken using Fujifilm X-A3 after the jump!

Purchase of the Week: Lang Leav and Other Buys

While waiting for my Calligraphy Class (I’ll share that in another post), I did some shopping at Fully Booked. I was glad I didn’t stay elsewhere or else I could have bought unnecessary stuff and regretted them! Whew! The last book that I read was All the Bright Places by Rainbow Rowell and currently, I’m still reading Never Let Me Go (That’s thanks to Andrew Garfield!) by Kazuo Ishiguro, which I bought in 2014. So it was about time for me to shop for my bookcase and that was enough reason for me to not feel guilty about my purchase. Confession: I’m a recovering shopaholic. And my list includes Lang Leav! <3

Blogging about my latest purchase to make me feel not guilty. HAHA.

Drum roll please! Here are the items of my purchase of the week after the jump.

Trampoline Park

Amiciness visits the Trampoline Park in Greenfield, Mandaluyong City. At first glance, the area isn’t as big (vs. to what we expected) but it’s more than enough to enjoy the whole experience. I got discounted vouchers from Metrodeal but you can get a 1-hour all-access to the park for the regular price of P320 (weekdays) and P350 (weekends).

Jumpin’ jumping.

The receiving area faces the street. It’s a bit disorganized but it does the job. Entering the Trampoline Park, you will be sent to the waiting area upstairs since people are only allowed to enter every hour. Minutes before our schedule, we are asked to go to the viewing area to watch a safety video, imported from the UK, I guess. I suggest they shoot a Filipino version to make it even more entertaining and informative.

Seriously, hiningal ako. </3

There’s the main court (with a volleyball net and colorful balls) where you can trampoline all you want. The park also has a basketball area so you can practice dunking. That’s way too advanced for me. HAHA. I have my limits.

WORK IT!

I tried doing poses while jumping to no avail. Consider this as an official apology to ANTM/AsNTM models who were required to bounce up and in the air while struggling to be high fashion. I. AM. SORRY.

And the FCO goes to me… #NOT

Trampolining is a good fitness activity as it helps strengthen your core muscles and improves control of body position. However, you are trampolining at your own risk. Meaning, you have to be a responsible trampoliner. Haha Trampoliners is such a cute word.  Don’t worry, the safety video tutorial will guide you on your first time. PS. Don’t forget to warm-up and stretch!

Wahhhhh…

Overall, I enjoyed the experience even if my body was a bit old for this. Trampolining has always been a dream ever since I was exposed to western television. I envy the kids who’re given the opportunity to experience this while their bodies are still not frail and their energy limitless. HAHA. Next time, I’ll bring red bull.
