Music and Me

I am a music-lover but music hates me. I mean, I love to sing but I don’t have a good voice. So instead of trying so hard to learn how to sing, I focus on dancing because its one thing I am good at. By the way, it still brings me to my first love, MUSIC. I need music to dance, right?

When I was in college I have a friend who is good at mixing music and who is a good DJ. He was the one who taught me how to hone my skills in dancing and he is the one who keeps on sharing his thoughts about music and his tools such as motu 896mk3 hybrid to make good music.


Pink Mask

Today is Friday once again and here I am sharing my post about something pink that I own.
My son went to my office and when he looked up, somewhere at the wall, he saw my lines of masks. He wants to try one, so I let him. I let him used the pink one and look here:

He looks cute wearing it. We are just playing around, using my laptop’s webcam to take our picture.

Travel Memorabilias

One thing I love about traveling is that I get to own a lot of things from the different places I am visiting. The most common thing I always buy to remind me that I have visited such place or country is KEY CHAINS. Yes, it is not expensive, I can carry it without taking much effort, and I can buy a whole bunch of it to give away for my friends and family. Another collectible that I love to buy is the refrigerator magnet, it is also cheap and lightweight so it is a very ideal memorabilia to take home too. I have not heard of trophies that are sold as travel memorabilia for a certain place or country. But it can be great if some countries that are good at sports and Olympics can think of selling such memorabilia to their tourists and guests because it is unique.

Happy Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year everyone.

We don’t celebrate Chinese New Year because we are not Chinese. But I am fascinated by the Chinese people who celebrates it and welcomes Chinese New Year with great expectation and extravagant fireworks.

There are people who prepares food which are lucky for the coming year, they also prepare themselves by wearing dresses which brings good fortune for the coming year.


Want Shoes?

Any so-called material thing that you want is merely a symbol: you want it not for itself, but because it will content your spirit for the moment.—Mark Twain

Many people are always caught up with the idea of finding pleasure on material and expensive things, which feeds their personal ego and desire. As quoted by Mark Twain, we may not want the material itself, but we wanted to gratify and reward ourselves with these material things in order to vanquish any undesirable emotions and thoughts that disturb us. Not only does it eradicate bad things, but it also boosts one’s self-esteem and confidence in order to feed ourselves with the things we desire most.

As for me, I never had developed any attachment to expensive things that this world has offered. Although, I must admit that I am a materialistic person, but I often do not choose expensive and luxurious materials because I find it impractical. I only buy discounted, brand less, cheap clothes, etc. Nevertheless, among all the things that I have bought and saw on the market, shoes attracted me the most. I find it pleasing and alluring to the eyes, and it feels as if it holds some mystical powers, which brings comfort and warmth to my soul. This is feeling is kind of similar to Mark Twain’s notion; I buy shoes to comfort and satisfy my soul for a moment, may it be in glory or in sadness.

Among all the shoes, I have collected; cheap club shoes have dominated my closet. I seldom go to clubs, bars, or parties, but I find club shoes alluring the most. Maybe it is because I find high heels sexy and seductive.
