You Have to Huff and Puff to Play this Instrument

Don’t you just love the sound of a harmonica? I love it a lot. But I don’t know how to play one, and I don’t have interest in learning how to play. You know why? I remember playing it when I was in elementary and it felt like I was running out of breath. I think I couldn’t play it good knowing that I couldn’t hold my breath that long. Does that make sense at all?

I am content with just listening to it. Know that song from Aerosmith where Steven Tyler played the harmonica? Love that! Forgot the title exactly although the song is actually playing in my head right now.

I love bands that play other musical instruments other than just guitar, piano and drums. It makes them unique and it make their music and songs stand out. Do you agree?

He’s Ready to Rock & Roll!

We went shopping over the weekend for the little one. The occasion? This Friday will be his 6th grade school dance. This will be his first dance ever and we wanted him to look good. But of course. Wink!

We don’t have this kind of occasion for kids his age back in our home country so I was kind of surprised upon learning about it. But I think it will be a fun get-together for them. There will be food, music (live music maybe or perhaps just with the help of a Arturia keyboard controller?) and he loves to dance, so this will be an exciting time for him.

He also had his haircut over the weekend. I told you, he’s ready for this thrilling event and he looks so excited too, always talking about it with us. I am excited for him. I don’t know exactly what they’re going to do but I can’t wait for him to experience it. And I can’t wait to hear his story afterwards.

Adidas Hard Court for the Picky Little One

Having a very hyperactive 11-year-old boy means going to the shoe store for a pair of sneakers shopping every two or three months. If you're lucky, it's going to be four or five months. And we were lucky. Why? Continue reading.

His last pair which we got him on his birthday was a pair of Converse Chuck Taylor side zip sneaker. Based on that pair, there's no doubt that Converse lives up to its name. That pair was really durable. We got it for him in March and it's not until September that it was showing a total wear out. Compared to his previous ones which were also brand-name sneakers, they only lasted for like two or three months.

So when we went shopping for a new pair of sneakers for him, I was thinking of Converse again. But he wanted something different and since he's going to be the one to wear or use it, we let him choose.

His choice? An Adidas Hard Court.

Look how awesome those pair look. It got an awesome price tag too. Whoa! But it was on sale so we got a pretty good amount of discount. But even with the discount, it is still more expensive than my pair of sandals. LOL.

He was actually eyeing on a pair of Air Jordan but the color that he liked which was black doesn't have his size anymore. So we had to check another store at the mall and saw this.

Our little boy was a super duper happy camper. Can you imagine the smile on his face? It was ear to ear! (",)
