If I could, I’d measure my life in afternoons spent idly browsing bookstore bookshelves in search for my latest obsession. My inner book nerd hyperventilates each time I see collectibles of my favorite stories and I just about had a panic attack when I saw the Tintin Shop at Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street.

Andy, Erika, and I were greeted by “Tintin” tour guides that gave us a crash course on the adventures of the iconic comic book character and his author, Hergé. Growing up watching the cartoon series, I remembered the stories vaguely but seeing the items they had on display made me long to revisit each of Tintin’s tales.

After the tour we dropped by the (of course) Tintin-themed snack table then tried our luck playing the games so we could bring home more Tintin goodies. Our origami making skills were put to the test as we (successfully) tried to fold our own Snowy! We had a laugh with the ever-friendly and accommodating Fully Booked personnel who told us stories about everything ranging from Dr. Who to their own Tintin-esque adventures.

The shop had something for everyone, whether you’re a longtime fan or were just drawn in by the cuteness of Snowy, you definitely won’t resist (or regret) bringing home what they had on sale. Sure enough, the three of us ended the day by buying our own copies of the books available.
