Making the Most of the Kids’ Vacation

It’s just few weeks until the end of the school break and my kids are quite sad about it that they asked me to plan some activities to make the most of their vacation. We’re planning on a swimming on some nearby resorts in our province but we want to do it on a night time because the sun is really harsh these days as if you would bet burned anytime. 

Anyway there are other things that they do to make their time worthwhile like singing on our newly bought Bluetooth microphone and playing on their favorite musical instruments like keyboards and guitar. We still have to buy upgraded instruments like http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/martin-standard-series-d-35-dreadnought-acoustic-guitar but for now we should be saving our money for the coming school opening. 

Though they’re all scholars and my college kids are only paying small amount we still have to buy supplies and new uniform and new clothes. I’m thankful that we don’t have to pay for expensive tuition fees so I’ll just buy them what they want.

Coupons for Musical Accessories

I always love online shopping since the time that a couple of online stores gave me coupon codes as token for my review. It gives me not just comfort in shopping but great discounts as well. I remember getting my shoes, small household appliances, gadgets, glasses, clothes and decors right at the tips of my fingers. It gave me such sweet satisfaction every time I was called to get my delivery at the reception of my work place. 

I choose to deliver my goodies in my work place because it suits my time and it’s faster too. Now I’m glad that there’s also guitar center coupon in store that we can use when we buy my kids’ favorite musical accessories. Coupons are such great help to afford expensive musical instrument which we dream of buying and we’re looking forward to getting those coupons in the coming days.

Before Our Daughter’s Memorable Day



Before my daughter’s memorable birthday we had a lot of things to plan, do and prepare. At times I felt that we’re running out of time and we can never finish with our original plans. We were so worried with the food, whole venue and the backdrop design that I really prayed for God’s help. Then suddenly when it’s only few days left before the big day things fall into places, neighbors lend their equipment, friends shared some funds and relatives were there to offer their lending hand.

I was overwhelmed when we completed our sounds equipment with the help of my nieces and work friends of hubby which gave us the amplifier, speaker and some microphones which resembles that of http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pro-audio/neumann-u87-ai-shockmount-set-z-microphone-with-box. We were also late in our food reservation as we only informed our catering service just three days before the event. God is so good that because the catering couple is hubby’s friends they gladly accepted it with special discounted rates. With the help of family, friends and God’s guidance I can say that we were able to celebrate our dear daughter’s debut with a joyful and fulfilled heart. I was glad that we also made our Gen happy too.

Whitney Port Is Pregnant!

Another “Hills” baby! Fashion Designer and “Hills” star alum Whitney Port announced on Instagram that she is expecting her first child with hubby Tim Rosenman. The gorgeous gal posted a photo of herself in a white tied up tee shirt and lacy underwear, with the caption: "Oh hey! Just standing by the window in my underwear, with a BABY in my belly!!!" she shared on social media. "DM me if you know what I'm supposed to do with this thing for how ever many years I'm supposed to be in charge." So cute! 

The 31 year old also wrote on her website that she and her hubby were quite shocked to find out that she was expecting, but they were over the moon with excitement. She also promised fans to post videos and pics all along the way, and said that she couldn't wait to include them in her journey and have them feel like a part of the experience. So sweet! Port and her husband, Tim Rosenman, who she calls “Timmy”, were married in November 2015. The couple met when Roseman was a producer on “The Hills” spin off show, “The City”. Whitney's baby is going to have plenty of “The Hills” company as well. Former co-star Lauren Conrad announced just a month ago that she and husband William Tell are expecting their first child. Audrina Partridge also welcomed a baby last year as well. We are so excited for Tim and Whitney and wish them health and happiness on their new and exciting journey!

Cool Green Home Kitchen

Photo: Sarri & Forrai Photography

For those who love to see green surroundings in their interiors you might want this one.  Last summer I had my own kitchen renovated and though it's not as grand as the above picture I can say that I'm satisfied with the changes.  I had my kitchen appliances arranged and fit in one line and had the repainted with cool green color.   I had my gas range fitted to the wall as previously it just stand in the middle of the kitchen.

Well I love to have a kitchen like this in the future but for now I should be contented with what I have, anyway the colors are the same and so is the ambiance, very cool and anyone who enters this kitchen will feel peaceful and comfortable. 

I saw this at kitchen.com and  this one is from Sawhill Custom Kitchens and Design, Inc.

Loving the Genes of Musicality

It’s been a long happy vacation for the family during the recent holiday because we've spent almost a week together in the coldest part of the country. Well it's not just a vacation but a fellowship also for the whole church so we travelled all the way from Manila to the mountainous and cold place of Baguio to enjoy the scenery, food, weather and all the nice things of the place. 

Since it's a long break from school Gen found her way into tinkering guitar and played some of her favorite pieces. She's only into drum playing now so she has grown some interest in the drum set accessories we chanced upon like the snare wire we found at music online store. She really loves music and everything around it - musical instruments, accessories, equipment and many other music items. Lucky that she also got the genes that learns music fast.
