Magic101: Maximizing Budget


When it comes to almost everything in life - may it be doing the things we want, travelling, hobbies, eating outside or even buying groceries - everything falls under a budget. This becomes the upper bound, a limit. Without this limit, we can go bankrupt and not save anything for our future. This is not about lessons in life and economics, this is about enjoying things even on a budget. Hobbies are just one aspect in life and putting everything you've got in your hobby is, for me, pretty much plain stupid and unreasonable. Savings and investment is still the way to live life to assure ourselves of a future (+1 Win in Life's game). I will talk about Magic: the Gathering but I think the concept is applicable to other things in life.

Playing with Fire - Journey Into Nyx


More than two weeks after the release of Journey Into Nyx, Standard opens up new brews that can potentially change the tournament scenes in the next months. People will continue to brew with the new Gods, Black receives Temple of Malady to splash for green and Esper receives even more tools to stamp their existence in the coming tournament pictures. Today I wanted to write about the deck that doesn't receive much love lately - Mono Red and I wanted to look at the new tools in Journey Into Nyx that can help Red in the coming months.

Playing Mini Masters


When you experienced playing Magic: the Gathering or any other card game, you would know that opening booster packs is one of the most exciting and thrilling aspect of the game. But if you can also play a game in addition to the thrill of opening packs, now that would be so much better.

This game is called Mini-Masters, or others call it "Pack Wars", and it's really quite simple to play. Your deck will be comprised of the pack contents and you just need to add basic lands to your deck and you're set! Here are the details on how to play:

Gyu Karubi Don



The Japanese word Karubi means Sesame Seeds. And this beef bowl with sesame seeds is different from the regular Gyudon. This Sesame Seed Beef Bowl comes with a thicker beef that is grill-cooked. For someone who likes grilled food so much, I could say that this is my favorite dish in Yoshinoya. However, this dish is a bit more expensive than your regular gyudon dishes but for the additional price, it's definitely worth it. Gyu Karubi don comes with a special barbecue sauce that you will put on top of your beef before you attack. ^_^
