Remembering Life Before the Internet

Written By: rachel - Jul• 13•15

Life used to be simple and sweet before the Internet.  During family gatherings, kids would eat in a hurry so that they could play outside with their cousins.  Kids were so active back in those days.  Their laughter reverberated on the walls as they played traditional games like piko, habulan, taguan, patintero, agawan base, and many more.  Things have changed significantly over the years.  Today, family reunions seem more subdued.  Kids are more passive these days.  They usually huddle in one room playing with their gadgets. I miss those days.

Enjoy Live Band Music

Music never fails to bring people together.  During parties and get-together affairs, it’s always nice to have good music playing in the background.  Live music can add life to a special occasion.  Many people appreciate watching live performances during special occasions like weddings, birthdays and Christmas parties.  If you want a lively event, it’s nice to book a band to get your party going.  Make it a point to choose a fun, lively and cool band that can perform your favorite type of music. If you want a copy of the band’s live performance, you can request them to record it. A handheld recorder like the zoom h5 can do the job.  Let the music play and dance all night.

I love the Minions. They are so cute and adorable.  I’m glad that McDonald’s is featuring them again in Happy Meal.

I went on a Minion frenzy and bought all ten at once:  Egyptian Hula Minion, Minion Vampire, Martial Arts Minion, Groovy Stuart, Minion Caveman, Marching Minion Soldier, Minion Guard, Lava Shooting Kevin, Guitar Strumming Stuart, and Chatting Bob.

Proper Care of Musical Equipment

Written By: rachel - May• 19•15

Music instruments and other musical equipment require proper care.  Always clean musical instruments and equipment to ensure that they function and perform well.  They may also require periodical maintenance to determine if some parts need repair or replacement.  Musical instruments and equipment experience normal wear and tear.  For instance, the stratocaster tremolo is used to replace worn out Stratocaster bridge. Check your musical instrument or equipment immediately if you notice a change in sound or performance. Proper care and maintenance can extend the life of your musical instrument or equipment.

Summer Swimming Lessons

Written By: rachel - May• 19•15

My son just completed his Advance Swimming lessons this summer. I’m very proud of his accomplishment.  It feels good to see him enjoying himself in the water.  He used to be afraid of going to the deep part of the pool.  After finishing his summer swimming lessons, he seems more confident in the water.  As a mom, I’m thankful that he knows how to swim properly.  I learned that swimming is an important survival skill.  His swimming lessons are not yet over. My son decided to join the swim team.  I’m sure the experience will help him improve and refine his swimming techniques.

Happy Holidays everyone! Hope you had a lovely Christmas celebration with your loved ones. Wishing you a promising New Year!

We had a fun and memorable Christmas celebration with the extended family.  Our annual Kris Kringle was one of the highlights of the evening. I received a 9000 mah powerbank and an 8 gb USB from my monita who turned out to be my mother-in-law.  She also gave me a sampler of gourmet jams. She’s very sweet. The rest of the family exchanged gifts after the Kris Kringle revelation. Everyone had a great time especially the kids.
