Quantum, I love this place that I had to create an entry just for this.
—-
When I got back to Bacolod, one of the places I really wanted to see again was Quantum. I spent the first half of my freshman year in high school here, and Robinsons was still the only “mall” available. I didn’t mind how small it looked because there were two game arcade establishments there. Worlds of Fun and Quantum, of course I like Quantum better.

I first fell in love with arcade games when I was still a kid, when my cousins and I went to the nearest arcade game during Noche Buena. I was just mesmerized by the lights and the types of games one could play. Fast forward to when we stayed in Manila for 3 months; we visited SM North Edsa and my eyes grew wide open when I saw the arcade games available at Quantum. Nothing can still beat that North Edsa branch; with all the newest games and the hi-tech gadgets available (I remember walking into a small hallway where I was surrounded by television screens with a Marvel game being turned on.

This was my favorite past time when I was a kid; whether it be in Davao, Cebu, Manila, Bacolod, everywhere! I could remember one time in ATU Plaza in Davao where we went to Sonic Boom. I had my hundred bucks allowance exchanged for 33 tokens; that’s actually a lot already. But during that time I got so excited since they had a Buy One Take One promo; I was in arcade heaven!

I know I’m sounding too nerdy now that’s why I’m going to stop, but I just couldn’t help leaving my colleague with her duties when we dropped by Robinsons Bacolod. I just stayed in Quantum for a couple of hours, just to see if I still knew the techniques in the games I used to play.
