Dragon Unboxing: Anvil Publishing’s 30th Anniversary Haul

Hello Sweeties,

I am not certain if it is precognition but I feel I have been shopping for books like crazy preparing for days like this enhanced community quarantine in entire Luzon.  Last month Anvil Publishing has a month long on-line discount for their online shop. I took the opportunity to check out their books and see if I find anything interesting. Who am I kidding ? I will always find books interesting. (lol)

I don’t usually buy my books online, because I love touching, browsing, and sniffing if  you believe  the books personally.

You just need to register on line and you have the option to pay via card or via bank deposit. Alas, they only have BPI as their bank hopefully soon they would have other means to register like PayMay or GCash, to make it easier for all of us who have started to go cashless and careless, mobile banking is really the wave of the future.

My first haul took more than five days to reach me.  I got most of them at discounted prices, for as much as 30% off.

Hands Ako!  Written by Liwliwa Malabed and Illustrated by Mia Lagos, is actually a small booklet that talks about natural calamities like Typhoons, Earthquake and Volcanic eruptions and how to prepare for such occurrences, should the need arise. It also contains a chapter about first aid, what to do in case of fire and who to call in case of emergencies.

The booklet cost only 120php, but it is packed with extensive information.  Written in Filipino but very easy to understand.
