Back in the day, the only thing that we are used to when it comes to music is guitars and piano. We are just contented hearing singers humming with the strumming guitar and mellow of the piano in the background But things have changed and that is so for the good and betterment in the music industry. Now there are now high tech musician’s gadgets used like ik multimedia that combine the sound quality of analog with the versatility of digital. Cool right?! No wonder how enjoyable it is to watch concerts and musical showcase in this digital world that we have now.
Oh My! A lot of things had happen in between those times since my last post here. I got a new job, dear daughter graduated from grade six and she just turned 12, Nicco turned ten years old late last month. The most challenging part was Ian’s toe got amputated last April 27. He’s still recovering up until now. Hopefully he can go back on his feet again! Now, it’s just a couple of days away from 2016 school year for the kids.
Hopefully, these are the things that I want to accomplish before 2016 ends.
- Achieve good records at work ( ATM, I am the least performer in our team) aiming high to do good at work.
- travel time with the family- 3 days away from the hustle and bustle of city life
- set up an online business
- paid off all of our debts this year.
- spend more quality time with the family
- Be able to spend more time to visit my Mom and sisters like we used to in the past years.
For this blog, I’ll be doing a major clean up in my upcoming free time. Aiming to fill this up with updates and keep the ball rolling!

I would finally be wearing a headset similar to pioneer hdj 2000 as part of my new job starting next week! Nope, I am not going to become a radio dj. Lol! But a call center agent. This is going to be something different and yet exciting work journey for me. I’ve been used to working on a regular work schedule and dealing only with a few co-workers but will now deal with a lot of people around me. So looking forward to these new changes in a positive way. Bring it on!
Oh wow! I am so sorry for not updating this blog for a couple of months now. I still can’t keep up with the updates because our PC is not yet fixed. I am just using my mobile phone to get things done as to my online activities. Hopefully, when things are settled offline, i can catch up here.
I am not yet even done with giving Christmas gifts to some of my friends and relatives would you believe?! I am still looking around for the ac4 that I promised my brother for his guitar as a Christmas gift. Hope I can find one soon or it would turn out as a Valentines gift if ever. Haha!
