Last week, we finally used our voucher at Gandiva. We bought this voucher at Metrodeal that entitles 50% off for one hour archery session + 10% discount on food and drinks at Gandiva Cafe and Archery Range. I had my first archery session at Gandiva, Mall of Asia way back 2009. Then they moved to Ortigas last year. Archery is a unique sport which can't be usually seen in streets that's why I was really excited to try it the second time around. Their place today is much bigger than their previous archery range at MOA. They also have Gandiva Cafe so people can chill before and/or after their session. Gandiva is an indoor archery facility with 9 lanes, 18 meter range.
Vain pictures while waiting for our turn!
Gandiva Cafe. We didn't get a chance to try their cafe since we're on a 'broke mode' day.
We didn't waste our time for the one hour session of archery so this photos were taken after the archery session. :)

We accidentally had a small talk with Mr. Tim Bismark, and he asked us this question: So why archery? My mind was stunned for a moment and I just said it's unique. He said something like archery is in our DNA but we forget it. He is an archer for 5 years and had suffered 2 strokes before. According to him, archery is one of the reasons for his recovery.
Our mind is like the bow. Our thoughts are like arrows. And life is all about hitting targets.
