Between Christmas and New Year…

Is there a thing called a “holiday slowdown”?

This is the gap between Christmas and New Year – the time to recharge one’s batteries for the coming festivities, the turn of the calendar.

Let’s see what’s been happening during this time…

Earthquake consequences: Weakened structure. This is expected after a major calamity like an earthquake. Thus, ICM management should give more consideration to its structure – don’t just patch up, go deeper in your repairs, this is no small house but a mall.

I was seated at about 12:35pm to 12:45pm trying to feel the consumers’ pulse, instead felt the flooring was actually “shaking” with the comings and goings of people. Nobody’d probably feel it unless you link to your senses to the floor with no thoughts of just fun.

After standing up, I transferred to another area near BDO’s kiosk and ICM’s Home & Fashion… and lo! I still sensed it, the “shaking.” This could be “dangerous” in the long run if taken for granted. Whether a series of strong aftershocks or just plain influx of people (which is longer compared to aftershocks), the unimaginable could surely happen.

Safety first!

Male or female, young and old alike — people likes playing; whether horse playing, board games, actual sports, video games, pin balls, or in today’s times, mobile games. No doubt, we need entertainment — then, now — and always.

Depending on the floor area, similar gaming machines should be limited to 3 or 5; otherwise, the gaming center becomes kinda boring. Got what I mean? There’s no choices then. You know, centers should be updated on what’s “in”. Variety is key.

Also, sometimes the arrangement of these machines has something to do with appeal. In short, fix the gaming center’s “interior design.” Just don’t forget the sounds and lighting — it unconsciously sets the mood of gamers. Hah!

Sale! Sale!! Sale!!!

Wherever it may be — there always seem to be a SALE!

Whether in big cities or remote places or even highways, and of course, in garages — items just keep teasing your pocket.

But what if your favorite brand goes on sale and you don’t have the cash? Or credit card? Are you just gonna wait for the next sale, or would you try borrow from whoever?

How, what you gonna do?
