Gifted One

My bestfriend's kids are growing up so fast. The 2 girls are in their college levels taking up courses that they love. Wished they will be successful in the fields that they choose. The little boy on the other hand is Grade 6 already and will soon enter Grade 7 coming school year.

My always boasts about him for being so talented at school and at their church. Often times a member of the church choir singing and even wanting to play a guitar. Ahh for sure he''ll bug her parents to buy an acoustic guitar or even one of those telecaster style guitars if he'd get professional. He's been a gifted one anyway, so I see no reason why his parents will not support his musical talent.

It's always nice to see kids who has hobbies for they can express their creativity and feelings through that. We should always encourage them to learn new things.

Teens of PBB

I always love reality tv shows and with that Pinoy Big Brother, our local version is not to be missed. This new season started dubbed as PBB 737 wherein teens will stay for 7 weeks inside the house. I'm not used to watching the teens version but since of my friend's daughter is inside, I have to watch it. YLONA is talented 13 year old girl from Australia with Pinoy parents that can sing really well. I often watched her on you tube singing when her mom posts and I can see that she has real talent.

It is said that she is the teen version of Ariana Grande. She can sing well and for sure with b3 organ and other nice musical instruments she can deliver well. Ahhh.. I know she'll be a singer one day and a star! yey!

Doing What you Love

It's always been said that when you love what you are doing, you'll have not regard it as a chore or even a job. When you love what you do, you'll be passionate about it and will do anything to make it perfect and it will become your habit without exerting much effort. You'll always be happy doing it when put your heart and mind into it. Much like if you are into sport, music or arts.

Playing a musical instrument is no joke, you need to like practice and learn to love any instrument that you choose. Practice always makes perfect as they say. These days, getting supplies and other stuff is easier now for there are already online shops that sells instruments, muff fuzz and more. Getting your hands into something new requires practice and dedication, so if you want to learn an instrument, enrolling in a class is better. Just in case, fees are high then self practice can be done as well.

House Renovation

It's summer time here in our part of the world and also school break for the students. It's also the perfect time to do house renovations and all. Just last week, my brother's house was under renovation and it appears that it will take 2 months for it to be finished.

Second floor is on its way and it will have 2 rooms where in my nephew and niece will use since they are growing pretty fast.  It's such a relief because they will not share a room anymore and each one can have their one space. The old room will become a study room for them that will have their computers and other stuff. I'm sure before the new school year starts their new room will be finished already. I hope their study room will have 2 desks so they have one each. Bro is good at looking for a drawer slide size that can match the table.

I'm so excited for them and can't wait for their renovated house as it can give them more space. The only thing that bothers me right now is the dust. I have to clean every time but that is ok. Bro and his family have transferred to our other place temporarily.

Are You Done with your Christmas Shopping?

Christmas is just really around the corner and I have to say that I'm pretty excited already. Shopping makes me excited as I can shop for my loved ones and of godchildren. I have many godchildren that I only see every Christmas when they come to see me and to receive gifts. It is sad but exciting as well as I get to see them. While writing this post, I remember another 2 godchildren of mine that I have not shopped for their gifts and that will send me to the mall once again. I am thinking of giving school stuff for one of my godchildren for I know she can use it.

It's nice to give headset or headphones to teens for they are always listening to music or maybe playing games at home. You can check out this Headphone Buying Guide if you are planning to buy them as gifts. Christmas is giving and sharing. It's also the time to splurge (I'm guilty of this). No matter how I tell myself to not too much for myself but I still shop.. Oh well.... I deserve it too. I'll just work hard again next year to save.

Shop now and put those wrapped gifts under your Christmas tree!

Addiction Problem among the Children

Addiction seems to be the one of the biggest problems in nowadays world. There are so many types of addictions that sometimes it is extremely hard to recognize them. We can distinguish two main types of this problem. First one is the addiction to substances like alcohol and other drugs. Second is about behavior. People may be addicted to surfing the Net or eating. Usually the second category is straight connected with the experience which people feel during the activity. As far as eating is concerned, the pleasure coming from this activity is so high that stopping it may result in a big shock.

Kids and addiction
Children are the group that is the mostly exposed to any kind of threats. It mainly comes from the nature of the young person. Kids want to learn new things, want to try everything, especially what is forbidden. Everybody knows the story about Adam and Eve, which is the best explanation of the children’s desire. The more something is hidden and unavailable, the stronger the desire to have or experience it might be. In the same way young people are trying to get what they should not have access to. The most popular addictions among kids in these days are: narcotics, including alcohol, tobacco, marihuana and other chemical substances; computer and internet addictions and pornography.

Computer addictions
Nowadays you can find basically everything in the Internet, from the movies and video games to pornografic and brutal content. That’s why it became the most desired thing among the young people. They use it for everything, starting from the school related things like doing homework (however I would call it copy – paste work) ending with entertainment. Games and social media made the Internet environment very dangerous place in terms of wasting the kid’s time. Currently they are able to spend all day in front of the monitor just playing games. Porn and violent content is the second thing that attracts kid’s attention. This is especially dangerous, because children’s mentality can be hurt and it may have very dramatic consequences in the future like lack of openness to others and problems with creating new relationships. Apart from mental problems, health condition is also exposed to big overload because of lack of sleep. It may lead to the serious nutrition problems.

How to deal with that?
There are several ways to fight with addiction. The best practice is of course to prevent such a behavior. Education and building awareness from the very beginning is crucial to grow an aware kid who we will be able to recognize the threats. Another way of preventing these kinds of problems is to install parental control software. Parental control software is usually able to perform many kind of controlling activities like for instance blocking access to the violent websites, filtering the email box or regulating the time span in which user is able to use the computer. On the other hand, there are a lot parents that already have problems with keeping their kids away from the computer. In this case the parental control programs may also help, but parents should think about some more radicals moves. Specialist therapy should the first step after detecting any problems regarding the computer addiction.

If you are interested in the topic of parental control and if you want to get more information about the problem, feel free to visit and get familiar with PCWebControl. It is third party software designed for Windows operating system that fully supports the process of setting up control over the computer users.

Keep Calm and Sing Your Heart Out

Imagine a world without music. For sure it will be dull, boring and lifeless place to live in. Music is universal, music transcends message, soothes our soul and calms our spirit.

Listening to music is one of the things that I make sure to do everyday. Be it on my phone, radio or over the internet, I have to make sure that I listen to music all the time. I listen to music when I am down, happy or just want to groove or during my exercise time every morning.

There are those who loves to sing no matter if they are just an ordinary people, novice or professional singer. It doesn;t matter as long as you want to pour some emotions. Singing can relieve our stress, believe me.

Listen to  music if you want to reminisce, groove or just want to have a company. If you want to play some musical instruments then that would be great. Learn more about us at if you want to purchase some musical accessories and more.

Stage Fright

Students need to participate in school's extra curricular activities as much as they can. This can give them extra points in their grades and as well as it can expose them to various events to gain confidence and exposure. I remember my nephew D who is in his senior year joined an academic group about marketing of sorts. Standing in front of his classmates as well as his teachers make him nervous. Apart from that, talking in stage with stage microphones can be pretty scary but those didn't hinder my nephew to deliver his defense and oral speech.

I'm sure he is so nervous but he knows what he is doing and studied his piece thoroughly that's why his stage freight disappeared as what he told us. He did a pretty good job and got a thumbs up from his teachers. Now, he has to wait for his grade that I know will be a good one.
