parkourTry your hand at parkour. If you've spotted parkour enthusiasts running, jumping and climbing around the city like it's one big urban obstacle course and found yourself wanting to try it, this weekend could be the perfect time to start. Check out their website for an intro to the sport's moves, jumps and rolls and join the group at their next weekend meet-up.

newcmapCatch a Saturday night flick at Mogwai. This weekend, catch the tail-end of Cult Cinema week at Mogwai, a haven for those who want something different. Located in the bohemian commune, Cubao-X, Mogwai combines the traditional and the eclectic in the reel world with Hollywood blockbusters, never-heard-of movies, underground cinema and classics that any film buff should see.


This Saturday, see the film The Room at 10 p.m., directed by Tommy Wiseau. An unintentional funny film, it's filled with obtuse observations about human existence.

Where: Mogwai, Unit 62-63 Cubao Expo, Gen. Romulo Avenue, Cubao, Quezon City (913-1060)

How to get there: From EDSA Northbound, make a right on P. Tuazon and turn left on Gen. Romulo Avenue. The Cubao X compound will be on your right, after Auto Centrum.

Coupled with neck, back and hand massages, it's an indulgent way to relax and unwind.
