Cello

A few moms at school which I have come to know this school year were asked to bring or buy various musical instruments for a school project or class performance. I did not hear from the first grade moms though so I assume we won't be needing to buy or bring any instrument to school yet this time. 

Though I was looking recently for a cello out of interest and curiosity when I came upon the tungsten spirocore cello strings at wwbw a few days ago. It gives a greater propensity for musical vibration. They ship to the Philippines by the way in case anyone of you here gets to read this. But those were strings while I was interested in the whole cello instrument. There are a a variety of available wood wind and brasswind instruments for the musicians and musically-inclined people. Now I am going to look for more online stores selling that cello. Any recommendations?

Car Racing McDo Happy Meal Toy

 

 Car Racing McDo Happy Meal Toy

My little kid requested to eat at McDo this weekend and so after hearing mass we went to the mall and I still tried to persuade him to eat somewhere else. But since he got better grades than I expected in two subjects, I gave in to his request as a reward. Anyway this toy is way more affordable than the one he is asking for Christmas. 

I just noticed the Happy Meal toys this time are like those you would find in another fast food chain. No offense meant but the HM toys seem better before as what the opinions of other moms I know also say. Maybe these are just among the usual toys that they have on ordinary days when there are no special HM toy sets.

Kids still like getting these toys nevertheless. They find happiness in getting these. It just goes away sooner though and then they ask for another one. Can you relate to what am saying? Moms will understand. As long as the kid is happy then HM toy it is. We don't do this often anyway anymore.

TGIF

Thank goodness it's Friday! It may be a busy weekend but we still look forward to two days rest at home. This two-day break from school though will be spent studying for the coming three day first grading exam. Followed by two day of no classes making it a long weekend for me and my boys. 

I am honestly looking forward to that long weekend and much more for the little boy. Had I known about this last year when we booked our tickets to Manila, I would have chosen this weekend instead of a few weeks later. We would have more time to go around the places we want to visit instead of a very short family weekend vacation with my boys. This is an annual trip we do availing of a promo airfare.

It's gonna be a busy Friday and weekend. Half way through this day already. Off to school for my  little guy's lunch. Have a fab Friday and weekend!

Banjolele


I used to own a ukelele when I was in grade school. My parents bought me one so I can join a group of select students in the grade school department who will perform for a program at school. I joined that group and was able to perform though it was not perfect but really fun and memorable experience to be part of that select group. I enjoyed the experience and it was fun reminiscing those moments with my grade school classmates then.

I just thought about it when I came across the best banjolele at musicians friend. I was looking into this gold tone banjolele with professional features and construction with huge volume and rugged durability. For a music group or band performing together this is said to be great to add some variety to your stage act and is also perfect as a travel instrument. 

The banjolele indeed reminded me of my memories of my first and only ukelele which I last remember seeing at my parents' house when I was working already for my first company employer and I thought of buying a guitar with my own money from my own pay that time. I wonder if my son would be interested in playing a banjolele other than a guitar or ukelele.

Finally a Haircut

Finally had a haircut yesterday while we were waiting to fetch the lil boy from school. I finally tried this Korean salon that opened a new branch at GMall last June. My suki Korean salon closed last April and since then I have been looking for another Korean salon in the city that isn't that expensive and near our area.

Last week if I remember it right, two of the staff at the old suki salon saw me pass by outside this new Korean salon. I was quite surprised to see them there actually. But since the old salon closed they had to find a new job in another one and there they are. It's good to see them there as old familiar faces who knew my preference when it comes to haircut and treatment.

I am happy to have finally have a haircut however the staff who did it must have not listened to my specific instruction not to cut short my hair at both sides of my face. It turned out she did a haircut on me that I had before which was hard to maintain afterwards. I am very particular about the length and cut of my hair on both side of my face and she just did what I would like to avoid. She did not listen and I just smiled there coz I don't want to put her in an awkward position if I complained right? I still gave her a tip so I guess I have somehow conceded though I was initially disappointed she was not listening well and didn't get the style I actually wanted. She probably have not seen Kris A's latest haircut. That's what I actually told her and her companion earlier.

It would be okay if I always had my hair straight after being ironed but I don't get that luxury often so there's a tendency for it to fly away. The sides are too short to be kept in a pony tail. Well I guess I have to find some way to tie my hair from now on. I was wishing anyway I could cut my hair very short. I almost asked her afterwards to just cut it all short but that would mean it would take longer for me to have a hair long enough to be tied into a ponytail.

I am thinking now of going back and have it cut all short. But it's a long wait till I have my long hair back. Maybe by Christmas...
