Book Off San Diego- Buy, Sell and Trade books and electronics

Book Off Used Book Store located in Kearny Mesa Rd. San Diego, CA

I love manga and Anime. I also love to read various books like Harry Potter, the original Grim Fairly tales, Secret Garden and The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

I am also hilariously broke at the same time my home can be cluttered with old but gently used books, dvds and games that I no longer need.
Great thing there is Book Off. A buy sell and trade store located in Kearny Mesa ROad in San Diego where you can bring all your used books, old but still working electronics to exchange for cash. They also sell DVD’s, video games both old and news as well as electronic devices like iPads, Playstation, Nintendo 3Ds and XBox consoles.

Pocky Pretzels from Japan

It’s less than 3 weeks before my flight to manila. I will be making a quick stop over in Tokyo and I plan to do a mini Blog about the wonderful airport facility there.

Lately I have been massively broke yet bombarded by request from friends and family for pasalubongs- Tagalog term for gifts.

Good thing we have the Marukai stores in San Diego, several branches of Japanese themed home stores and groceries with affordable and high quality gift items I can send back home.

I already bought some sake and tea spices for friends and family especially Roasted Buckwheat Tea.  I’m saving up for some Japanese KitKats and Oreos.

I did a quick video of the Marukai Market Stores that can give you some ideas on where to shop for Japanese Spices and Ramen so you can make one at home, also those awesome home tools that only Japan can think of.

This is really one of my favorite stores to shop and I bought some great home organizers already at their home and office supply section.
