My youngest is at a stage where is trying out different things. He is also trying out different musical instruments. I am amazed by how he can play a nice melody on the keyboard. This is considering he has not had any lessons at all. It looks like I have to get him schilke instrument soon. We are running out of instruments for him to have a go at home.
Now that the school holidays are fast approaching, I have to start looking into activities for my kids. I have to be prepared for anything. If the outlook of summer is going to be too hot, I will have to consider it a summer of music. I will have to bring out the genelec 8030a and the karaoke for a lot of singing in-doors.
I’m thinking of making my own season’s greetings postcard using the pictures I photographed from different places I’ve been this year. I planned this last year and ended up a plan only. Hopefully I won’t feel lazy. It’s time consuming and takes a lot of effort to attach and adjust matching photos. Maybe I will make it simple. postcard printing online gives me more ideas of making postcards. I can make one design only anyway and I will just print more copies.
I didn’t really feel we had spring season this year. Mostly winter feeling with few summer days. How on earth this kind of weather exists? Is it due to global climate change
I mean global warming? What more to expect when summer start? I hope and pray that there will no bushfires and heatwave. Summer will officially start tomorrow. Twenty-five days to go until Christmas. Are you ready for the season? Well, people already start their Christmas shopping while others still thinking what to put on their shopping list. Mall areas always busy now crowded with shoppers because of the season massive clearance sales. What about me? Actually, I’m not interested to buy anything as of now. I had enough spending and preparing our last housewarming celebration. We already received our present. Our own new home sweet home. Thank you Lord, everything went well. What’s our next plan? Just relax and wait for two years for the next big event. If it won’t happen, some changes will take place. Watch it out!
I can’t still find my crucifix pendant. I’m already frustrated because it’s almost a year that I’m hoping that I’ll find it just hidden in one of my storages, purses, handbags and pockets. I’m done unpacking but still no signs that it’s still here. I already bought necklace chain in one of the jewelry stores in the mall just nearby so that I can insert it when I find it. Oh well I think I need to forget this sentiment I have for that pendant. I’m thinking of buying new one, maybe it will help me to forget the thing.
The Deluge of heartbreaking images and horrifying news accounts on the two deadliest calamities that recent struck the Philippines had Filipinos and other nations all over the world united in their prayers and in pooling resources to aid the survivors of the devastation left by super typhoon Haiyan and the 7.2 magnitude earthquake.
Typhoon Haiyan locally known as Yolanda, swept through Visayas and hit the central Philippines province of Leyte on 8 November 2013. It was the most powerful storm in the history to make landfall. More than 2000 dead are already recovered after 3 weeks and still searching for the missing people estimated to reach 10,000. Hopefully it won’t reach that much. More than 200 bodies only are unidentified.
Tacloban City, which is the hardest hit in the Visayas Region, is totally destroyed. Some survivors becoming violent as they loot for food and basic necessities. Communications and transportation are cut off and so are other services such as water and electricity. That worried me much because I had no contact with my mum and my brother’s family in BayBay Leyte, thanks God after 3 days, I got to talk to my mum telling me they’re all safe and her phone was nearly out of battery. Such a big relief though my heart is broken every time I saw those victims in the news. They’re starving and fighting for their life every day after the typhoon because they lost everything and still waiting for help. I can’t stop myself but cry for them with hope and prayers that they will recover as soon as possible.
Prior to Haiyan’s landfall, Central Visayas was pounded by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake on October 15 that reduced the central Island my province Bohol to ground zero, destroying houses, public structures and world-renowned sites such as Chocolate Hills, Death toll was more than 200 and injured more nearly a thousand. Damages were massive amount of million.
We were all still shaken by accounts on the aftermath of the earthquake when alarming news of the tropical cyclone was brought to public attention. The events came at a time when the country is suffering from a string of political hardships.
Overcoming disbelief and grief, Filipinos and foreign organizations around the world took the social media, used community gatherings as platforms and made personal appeal to raise funds for the victims.
Amidst the grief, Filipinos all over the world stand united and it is really overwhelming. Only God knows that we did our best to help those victims and whatever ways. I’m earnestly praying that those great efforts from millions of people around the world will reach to the hand of the neediest victims. Have mercy to them. Blessed are the volunteers who are heartily dedicating their days to help the relief operation. Blessed are the officials who don’t expect anything in doing their responsibilities. Bless Philippines, Bless Tacloban, Bless Bohol and Bless the whole world Almighty God.
It’s been 6 months since I kept on looking my gold necklace with a cross pendant on it. I’m sure I misplaced it somewhere but where. It’s upsetting when it cross my mind that I lost a precious jewellery of mine. Precious not because it’s expensive but because I had it for very long time. Sentimental value as we called it. Now, I saw this pendant which is sterling silver cross at joyjewelers.com and I feel like buying. I always like a simple cross pendant. I saw a perfect one for my sterling silver chain. I’m still hoping that I’ll still find what I lost.
Heartbreaking! Unbelievably shocking! But it happened and still happening. My poor hometown, my birthplace is destroyed by 7.2 magnitude earthquake last October 15, Thursday around 8 am Philippines time. Unexpected! Unprepared! More than a hundred people found dead and some are still missing. Old historic churches collapsed. Can’t help but shed tears seeing people in the news grieving, losing their homes and love ones. There’s huge scarcity of food and water. Some places became isolated due to collapsed bridges which made the place hard to reach. A kinda non-stop aftershocks. That’s why people still in evacuation centres. Some still sleeps outside, in safe open areas or under tents because they’re still scared to go their own homes. Our kitchen also collapsed but still thankful to God that my family are safe.
“It is expected that aftershocks will continue. The tremor will be less in magnitude. As soon as the earth plates will finally set, the tremor will stop. So for the meantime, accept that this will continue for some time. Stop anticipating when will the next one occurs again. You will be paranoid thinking of it when the only solution is simply to accept it. Keep calm. Continue with your daily task. Just pause whenever there is a tremor. Don’t make big fuzz about it. The big one had passed already.”
Block quoted paragraph above just seen on Facebook few hours ago shared by a friend of mine. It is really scary. Sincerely, my heart goes out to them. Such a traumatic experienced for them for sure. My brother was now updating on his FB page which means things are getting better and that makes me feel better too.
Please Lord, help Bohol and Cebu. Give more hope and courage to the people that they will recover from this tragic calamity. Let them hold on to their faith in you. Lighten up their burden Lord. Please touch the heart of the people who has enough resources so that they will share it to others. There were a lot of people suffering from hunger in our Province Bohol because of strong earthquake. Love is giving and sharing! Let them unite God. Amen.
Why sacrifice when there’s an easy way to lift? If your love one is not able to move around because of illness or other reasons, there’s a thing that we called stair lifts that has been used for years now. What a brilliant idea is this chair lift right? It helps to assists disabled people in any household or wherever it is applicable. This is really a big relief to the carers of those disabled patients. I can’t imagine how assistants manage to help thier patients before this lift invented. It’s not easy. I couldn’t do it myself with my tiny built. Some also that are very slow moving people but not disabled can use this and can even operate it on thier own. They can move around the house freely with the help of this going up and down their stairs.
It sounds like we’re talking about a device player here. I thought it’s a kind of DVD, CD, mp3 or blue ray music player. Actually, it’s a kind of guitar. How many kinds of guitar have? Maybe there’s a massive range. It is said that Fender has always made a point of welcoming new players to the family by offering entry-level instruments of remarkable style. There’s a wide series of great fender modern player at musicians friend. The modern series continues that great “my first fender” tradition, with thoroughly modern features and several distinctively new takes on their most revered instruments, all with outstandingly attainable value.
