Interrupted Sleep

Published by under BR_PU

Have you ever have the experience of sleeping with someone that snores loudly in their sleep? It’s truly annoying especially when you are died tired and try to catch some sleep.  My partner snores, very loudly so as my kids. It’s so irritating that sometimes I have to go to another room to sleep. I read about snoring relief pillows and wonder how effective it is. Really tempted to get one to try. I saw promotion of snoring pillows from cityofsleep.com. Going to get one to try it out.

The Ukulele

Published by under BR_PU

I love the ukulele. Of all the string instrument, the ukulele is the easiest to pick up. Though it’s not very hard to self learned playing the guitar.  With some basic knowledge on playing the guitar, that makes playing the ukulele even easier. I bought my ukulele from a group buy. Pretty reasonable. Alternatively, another good source and better quality ukulele is from music center. Check out the cheap martin iz ukulele at guitar center

Future Plan

Published by under BR_PU

During one of our casual chat, JS was mentioning about her future study plan. What she wants to study after finish high school. She was asking if she can do a double degree as in Art and Music. Like any other teens, she is really into music now. All the latest hits. She wants to learn DJ-ing, learning how to use all the gadget like kaoss pad 3 plus at musicians friend. I remembered when I was her age, I too dream of becoming a DJ where I can play all my favourite songs and meeting up with celebrities. Let see if 6 years down the road, she still has the same ambition.

They Love To Sing

Published by under BR_PU

 

The kids love to sing and they can come up with all sort of parody.  This is a recent photo taken at the karaoke session to celebrate SIL’s birthday. We don’t have a karaoke system at home. If only we could have one and top up with a acoustic amplifier at Musicians Friend , I guess they will be so distracted from their studies and want to sing all day long at home.

Live Concert

Published by under BR_PU

The two older kids had their very first experience to live concert this year. It’s not just any normal concert but Linkin Park rock concert. After the amazing experience, they often talked about it. Even when they are watching music video on TV or from youtube, they were comparing the stage setup and sound effects. They were talking about the chauvet 4bar on stage and some different lighting effect they see on tv screen.  They are also trying to go online to compare chauvet 4bar vs 4barflex at guitar center

School Band

Published by under BR_PU

During my primary school years back in my hometown, there’s a school band in our school. A few other schools including secondary school also has school bands. Besides performing during school events like sports day, children’s day , the band also perform during funeral. yes, you got it me, the school bands consisting of primary school kids perform during funeral. Our school situated right in the center of town and when these rich local businessman pass away, they donate money to the school and as a favour, the band perform during the funeral possession, marching along the street to the funeral parlor donning full band uniforms. Those were the memories. Since we moved to the city, I am not aware of many schools having their own school bands.

A Musical Family

Published by under BR_PU

I enjoy watching JS plays the piano. Just yesterday, she got me to print out some song sheets for her again and she is self learning. I am thinking maybe she has inherited the musical genes from my family. My dad plays the guitar, harmonica and flute , my brother the piano and guitar. My mum plays the harmonica, flute, saxophone and liu qin (a chinese instrument). I have a cousin who is very active in the chinese orchestra at his uni and another cousin who is playing at philharmonic and recently accompanied Richard Clayderman touring around Malaysia. Even my late maternal grandfather has owns an affordable king trombone and plays well. This family is never dulled, it’s always filled with music

Poor Eyesight

Published by under BR_PU

Probably due to inheritance, I have very poor eyesight since the age of 10. Both my children are having the same problem too and need correction by wearing glasses. I have not done lasik yet and I heard from the doctor that not everyone can undergo Lasik. I am now wearing contact lenses as wearing glasses is really inconvenient, and worst if I need to wear sunglasses without contact lenses, I would have to get a prescription sunglasses

Linkin Park Concert 2013

Published by under BR_PU

The two older kids were very lucky to be able go to Linkin Park concert at Bukit Jalil with their dad last Monday. They had a blast. In fact WH is the shortest and youngest fan there. I think there’s a age restriction to be at the concert, daddy was so prepared to get the kids lie on their age, but somehow they manage to get in.

Kids had a blast. It’s their first rock concert.
