Vlog Ep. 239: Dating Pet Peeves


Tonight's Friday #BaduyPride episode was all about dating pet peeves, and we had a lot of fun with all the different stories viewers shared during the stream. It's good to take a step back and laugh at these things whether they're seemingly ridiculous things that bother us or maybe the silly things that we're guilty of ourselves. 

Pet peeves are ultimately unique to each person and so there's a lot of room for misunderstandings and all that crazy stuff. But I stand by my statement at the end where it boils down to how much the rest of the date is going to determine how bad a pet peeve really is. But I'm also excited about the thought of what Tobie brought up about how pet peeves might be totally different for a lot of the digital-first generations that are coming into their own. I wonder if anyone will chime in with their own quirky irks in the comments.

Vlog Ep. 238: The Falcon and the Winter Soldier


This episode of #BaduyPride was all about another Disney+ show - this being The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. It's been long enough to wait out most folks wanting to avoid spoilers, so we figured it was time. And this mini-series really had me and Tobie uncertain of how we felt about it. We liked certain aspects of the show but on the whole, it didn't quite feel all that "necessary" a show in the greater scheme of the MCU scheme of things.

It was interesting how we had different things that seemed to matter to us more while other things were just okay. And we managed to surface a lot of those thoughts over the course of this episode. But in all honesty, I think we're just more excited to talk about Loki once we find the time to do so. And we'll definitely try to get a friend or two to join us for that important discussion..

Vlog Ep. 237: Merienda and Snacks


Tonight's Tasty Tuesday episode of #BaduyPride is all about merienda - the special snack time that is a tradition for most Filipino households. We all have different ideas of what these afternoon snacks "should" be and that's what defined tonight's discussion. Thus we talked about how our merienda experiences changed from our early childhood at home to option defined by school cafeterias and then later what is available around your workplace.

One of the more interesting discussion points that came up as we talked about different snacks was the near-universal perception that certain snack vendors only come at certain times. Tobie and I were both of the belief that taho is a morning thing because taho vendors only come in the day while ice cream is a possible merienda snack because the carts would only come in the afternoons. Funny how that works out.

Vlog Ep. 236: Unboxing MIND MGMT The Psychic Espionage "Game"


Today marked another unboxing video for today's #BaduyPride Monday night board game feature. And we really had a treat for today - the newly released MIND MGMT: The Psychic Espionage "Game" as based on the Matt Kindt comic book series of the same name. This hidden movement game was created by Jay Cormier and Sen-Foong Lim and published by Off the Page Games.

We were kind of surprised at how quickly the game got over here from my US forwarding address and hopefully we'll be able to dive into the actual gameplay sooner rather than later. And wow, what a treat this unboxing turned out to be! The game is literally covered in references and clever trickery that totally embraces the unique tone of the comics. You can already feel that you don't need to be a fan to enjoy this but it will only enhance your experience if you're familiar with the source material.

Vlog Ep. 235: Celebrating Theme Parks


This episode of #BaduyPride was all about the joys of theme parks - or maybe amusement parks in general, even. It's kind of ironic to talk about entertainment spaces like these during a time when social distancing and quarantines are still kings. But it doesn't take away from our good memories of these experiences.

And as much as it was fun to talk about all the different things we loved about theme parks we've been to, I'm still more excited for the places we'll (hopefully) one day visit and experience. Maybe our big Japan trip will become a reality one day and we'll just go from theme park to theme park and live our absolutely geekiest lives. One can dream.
