Boy and Girls

I took this pic yesterday while waiting for Vin try on clothes in a mall. I said "smile" to the three and suddenly both girls went to opposite sides, hehehehe!

They are a crazy bunch!

These are but one instance that i feel very blessed with what i have. No material thing can equal the love and happiness our family has.

Blessed and forever thankful.

Achivement

My not-so-little boy has done it again!

He will be graduating grade school this year and he bbeing one of the class officers belong to a group of all the officers. He was awarded a duty award medal for performing his capabilities and duties to the best he can. He said among all the grade six students only five were awarded with medals and recognition and he is one of them! So proud!

I asked him,what he wanted as a reward for this cool feat ... and he said he want guitar lessons this summer vacation. We already have a guitar but has been untouched for quite some time because of hectic school work. I am now looking at guitar center tallahassee for possible lessons so we may be able to put his talents to good use! I am so happy that he is inclined to the music arts and that we have a great guitarist in the future! Can't wait to hear strumming sounds int he house.

A New Me

2017 means good changes!

Here i am trying to reinvent myself! There is always room for change and i believe  taht there is more to come, Starting on my hair color today and see where it goes!

I recently taken up a regimen routine and am planning on sticking to it and see the results of my hard labor!

Bring it on, 2017!

We Are Doing This

In just a few months, two to exact ... it will be finally summer!

I have been making numerous travel plans and summer classes for the three kids and this time around i am also thinking of enrolling in a few classes as well. I know the saying "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" is a famous one, but then again i shall prove them wrong, hahahaha!

I have been looking at classes in voice so i make use of my natural talent, tee hee! Been frequenting a site that showcases musicians friend microphones and i might just give in! I have always believed in my good singing voice (hehehe!) and i already have four fans, my three kids and my husband ... so isn't that a good enough number to start a fan base? So really excited for summer!

Around The World

This has been quite a series of photos that er usually take when we travel. We focus on different parts of the body in a particular place. It may be just our hands, our wrists with stamped entrance tickets, our feet, our elbows and even our heads to show that we are all together.

We will be having a blog for these photos and i hope to share it with you guys as well!

Valentino

Funny when i opened my timehop app and this showed up. I still remember the time i asked him to pose like this then i photo shopped wings on him and took out the background.

I have been neglecting my graphic design skills for some time and upon seeing this picture it entices me ti open up my truckload of pictures and start creating fun things again.

I remember we even had a Mr & Mrs. Smith mock movie poster, hahaha!

Will post them pics as soon as i get them done ... soon!

The One

My laptop died on me today.

It has lived a long and meaningful life if you ask me. We have had our ups and downs but usually ups, hahaha! We have shared countless hours together, sometimes even losing sleep just to be together and have had quite a number of snacks in between. I will miss my laptop for sure, as i have been used to seeing and being on it every single day. But, just like everyting, nothing lasts forever, and i have to accept and move on.

So here i am now, at my desktop and browsing through the internet for my new bestfriend.,

Goodluck to me and may i finally find the one.

Bonding Through Music

My children are getting the hang of going to concerts lately. They are in their tweens and have found a liking to staged performances. We recently went to a Kpop concert and they had a lot of fun! We were able to get the the best seats and they really enjoyed it. I was wishful thinking what would they think if we had  backstage pass members at musiciansfriend.com in their next concert, i am sure they would be really excited! This is the stage in their teenage life when going to concerts and getting exclusive passes would really mean the world to them. As i write this they already have a few concerts and shows lined up for me to see if the can go to. The gift of music is something that we cannot deny our children, it is very enriching to the soul. This is one activity that i enjoy with my children as well. Happy bonding through music!

Bit Me

I will have to admit, the Pokemon bug bit me ... and hard.

I downloaded the Pokemon Go app on my ipad and my iphone and needless to say, i play all the time. My kids also like it and they take turns teaching me the different traits of each pokemon, may it be a rare kind or one that is always seen.

I am enjoying the time spent outdoors, walking around in search of the elusive creatures.

Stay young forever, play games!

Concert Like

Sam comes home from school announcing that she wants to become a singer! Yes, a singer! She has a great voice by the way, that if you close your eyes while you listen to her you would think it was coming from a professional singer. I am not kidding, she really sounds so mature. I am thinking of investing on some musical instruments to hone her skill, we already have a guitar and piano, i am thinking of getting a  eventide timefactor to make it really feel like a concert happening in our very home! I know having musically inclined kids will benefit them even when they grow older. Being attuned to music can really help one express themselves more than just words. Here's to coming up with a band in the very near future! 

So True

I came across this picture, and i could not agree more. I am an avid believer that things (good or bad) happen for a reason. There are no accidental meetings or situations, we are placed here for a specific reason. I know that whatever is given to us we can wing it. I know that there is something to get out from every situation. Trusting in His grand plan is something i live by.

So Life, bring it on!

Testing 1, 2, 3

Guess what?

I have been asked to host my children's school function! And yes, i am nervous. I remember my grade school days when i was still shy, yeah that was a long time ago, but memories are flashing before me. I think i have a decent speaking voice which i why i would always be asked to talk in front of a crowd. Back in those days when the sound system were a bit old and antiquated unlike now where we have u87 mic readily available to make us sound even better! 

So here i am, trying to practice and come up with a good spiel to make my children proud, hahaha! I know i can wing this, all ineed is to gather my senses, dress comfortably and be myself.

Will let you guys know how it went ... it will be happening next week! Good luck to me!

Half Already

It just dawned on me, just like that we are now half done with the year 2016!

Time does fly, and at lightning speed if i may add.

There is still another half to fill up with memories and adventures, and i am looking forward to this journey!


Exciting Times Ahead

Have you always wanted to learn to play a musical instrument?

That is one of my item in my "bucket list" and i really want to do it sooner than later. I always have an admiration for people who know how to play the guitar, and i have been eyeing on the thunder horse series! 

I will really put this on my dream board to let me stay focused to attain this dream of mine. My daughters know how to play the piano and some simple songs on guitar, and i have a few tunes that i can carry with a recorder, but that is it.


I will really make an effort to fulfill this promise to myself before the year ends!


Here's to exciting musical days ahead!

Hat of Feathers

So proud of my first born!

Another feather on her hat, and i can proudly say her hat is full of feathers of different colors and sizes. She remains to be humble and rooted to the ground no matter what achievements she gains. Her humility is another thing i can be proud of too. she is a very simple girl and i cannot ask for anymore from her and yet she keeps on giving me achievements after achievements!

Super proud of my little big lady!

Teaser

Here is just a preview of what is going to come! The little boy, who is actually not little anymore, he has been exhibiting changes in his voice and interests.

Vin is really into music, and his eyes are set on the gibson explorer, and is so excited to get his hands on it!

My other two kids are into piano and drums, so they could actually come up with a band. I will be charge of the vocals, hahaha!

Looking forward to hear good music in the future from my children, i think i should better plan ny 25th wedding anniversary line up of songs as early as now!
