A Fun and Happy TV show

When at home while working on my graphic designing, I also have the time to watch news and other shows even while working. TV is on while working and it serves as my background sound or music. Today, mom is at home early and as usual she wants to watch her fave afternoon show, wowowin a local game tv show that gives a lot of money to their contestants. Though the shouts and screams of the people are deafening, I can hide the fats that the show is rating and well loved by their fans.

The sound effects that seemed like they use david gilmour amp or whatever on the show and the energetic host and co-hosts make the show lively.The show obviously have a lot of sponsors that is why they can give a lot of prizes. No wonder the show is flocked by people from provinces because of the happiness, prizes and laughter that the show can bring.

Australian Vacation about to End

I was fortunate to have been given an Australian visa once again last year. The visa is valid for 3 months stay with no work, no further stay but with minimum of study for 3 months.

Since my sister and her family is having a vacation at the end of year last year, they booked my flight last Nov. 22 and I flew immediately. I was so happy to  be back again in Australia after 8 long years since I have been here. I love the country, the people, the way of life and more.. so I was excited that my visa was approved.

It was my first time to experience Christmas and New Year in Australia and it's very different from what I am used to in the Philippines. I can't say that I love it because it was just like an ordinary day except for the joy in opening of the gifts.

With the 3 months that I have been here, i have explored a lot of places like beaches, churches, restaurants, shopping malls and more and I love it.

Wishing there will be another year that I will be here. I love Australia and I will dearly miss it very soon..

Just Random Thoughts

What a nice day again here at the Land Down Under and sad that my sister is under the weather right now after our girls night out last night. I had some few time for myself today, cleaned my mobile phone of the photos that need to be transferred to my EHD.

It was also the time clean my niece's room who has not been home for quite sometime since she is at her apartment in Sydney. There goes her guitar that she bought few years ago just lying on the wall. It would have been nice to see her playing it while at home but she's out of the loop for a while. I have some questions in my head like what are the strings on a guitar look like when it's not being used all the time. Will it sound the same?

I remember trying to learn how to play the guitar when I was still young but boom I have no talent on it..lol

A Quiet Christmas

This is my first time to experience Holidays here in Australia and it's really different one for me. Our Christmas started with the opening of gifts. The kids and I had a great time opening our gifts for Christmas. I had quite a lot of gifts too that I will cherish.

A Christmas mass is not to be missed so we heard the 9 am quiet mass at Camden. Lunch is served at Nona and Popo's place and that is much about it.

I miss home but I'm still enjoying my stay here.

The Perfect Christmas Gift

The most wonderful time of the year is coming in just few days. My gifts are already wrapped and sitting nicely under the Christmas tree. I'm celebrating Christmas here with my sister's family at the Land Down Under and it's my very first time to experience how they celebrate it here. I know it's also good.

The last couple of days are spent going through the shops hunting for the perfect gifts. Although I have brought some gifts with me already when I flew here last November, I can't help but to scour the racks for more good finds. There are many great items to choose from and I have to say that I almost buy another gift for my niece who loves music and is actually taking music at the university. Upon seeing recorders for sale, I thought that I must have been a perfect Christmas gift for her but I already have something for her that she can also use (hopefully).

There are few more days left and I know there are still some people who are on a shopping rush this year. It's fun shopping for ourselves and for our loved ones. Nothing can beat Christmas always.

Addressing my Health Issues

Oh dear.. what a year it has been... It's been good and bad apparently. I have issues with my health mid August and have been addressing it uo to now. It's nothing fatal or so serious about it though but I still need to make myself healthy and fit because it is hindering me from doing some works.

I have been diagnosed with Complicated Migraine and Positional Vertigo which are scary when they both come together.. yay. Right now I have been taking medicines and slowly recovering and hopefully they will not come back anymore.

My doctors are pretty good and as a matter of fact I have a scheduled follow-up at my Neurologist later this afternoon.

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.
