One of the ways you can experience the coldness of winter during the -ber months!

We decided over at Booky that it’s high time to go beyond food and give you more. There’s so much to do and discover and we’re opening up Metro Manila to help you find your flavor starting with fitness and beauty. The new and improved Booky is stronger and cuter than ever.

Known best as a sport and leisure activity, ice skating can be so much more. In fact, it can even be your way of fulfilling the daily exercise requirement needed to be fit and healthy. Ice skating can help you be both mentally and physically fit. It allows you to detach from work and stress by forcing you to be present in the moment. It teaches you different skills such as balance and endurance. Moreover, it helps strengthen your joints and your leg muscles.
