Karaoke Time is a Happy Time!

My niece and nephews came to visit late on Christmas day.  Why?  Because they sang the night away.  Someone in the family rented a karaoke machine and they had the whole night taking turns in singing in their hearts out.

Karaoke machine is now out in the market for a long time.  I did not take the interest into buying one because it might sit in a corner because people at home are busy.  But then this Find the best karaoke machine from Musician’s Friend information given by a friend is interesting so I might consider scouting for it after the new year’s holiday.

I love to sing.  I sing in the shower but still I am not brave enough to sing out with friends in a karaoke bar.  But I will take this opportunity for friends to come and visit since I will be having a karaoke in my own living room.  Music room? Oh how I wish for it.  – in Later time!

Extending Our Help

I wonder at times when relatives and friends come to you for help – how willing you are then to really give the help that the person needs.  Personally, when I can, I do. But if I cannot, I have a hard time telling them that I cannot, especially if those people who are asking for help are more older than you.


I think the food is the easiest thing to give away. You can give food to someone who is hungry.  You can share food any time to anyone.  i always believe that blessings shared do come back in manifold form.  But human as I am, I feel annoyed helping people who are so capable of finding means to work for money so that they can buy food, yet they just think that asking for food (beggars) is easier than working out their strength in any form of a job.


If you do not have some, then money is the hardest thing you can give away.  True or not? For me, it is true. I am one who does not have a big stash of amount in the bank.  Bad thing really but I cannot deny it.  So if you can see beggar on the streets, don’t give them cash, feed them instead.


Sometimes, it is nice to give clothes away.  But keep in mind that what we give away is still wearable.  I am sure the recipient will feel bad that what you give them is already good for the rags.


Time is very precious.  So time shared is a golden opportunity.

So whatever we have, be it food, money, clothing, or time – may we share it with a happy heart.

Music Store Hopping in Cebu City

After the new year, I traveled to Cebu City to catch up with my daughter.  She’s with her cousins and Omi.  I was suppose to be with her before the new year in the island of Cabilao, but due to typhoon Senyang, I was not able to make it.

I almost cannot believe that I travelled almost the whole first day of the year as well as most of the day on the 2nd day of the year.  It could have been nice if the weather was perfect. But nah, it was cloudy and the boat had some bumpy moments in the seas especially the trip from Tagbilaran to Bohol.  I did not stop calling unto God to bless us by letting us arrive on shore still in one piece.  We did! Thanks be to Him.

One day before our trip back to Cagayan de Oro, together with her grandma we went our SM Music shops to look for a classic guitar and GC Korg. The prices made my jaw dropped. Wide open but was so quick to zipped it up before anyone would give me unsolicited attention. lol!  All the musical instruments on sale were of good quality.  So it’s like I can’t complain.  Not all were on discounted price so I said to myself, better luck next time.

We board the boat bound for Cagayan de Oro with my daughter’s new guitar, her precious guitar.

Keep Your Feet Firmly on the Ground

So true!

Some people fails to appreciate where they come from when they have reached their ambitions in life. Some even make it worst by being so light-headed when they have gained some small victories on their way to bigger victories. I just think that God will not be happy when we feel so proud of our achievements. Failing to realized the source of all goodness in this life. So, may this quote reminds us to be always humble in whatever status we are in this life’s journey.

How Can You Change Resolution Of Video Using Movavi Converter for Windows?

Changing video resolution is not a difficult thing to expatiate, provided you know bit about it. For starters, it is mostly expressed by width x height, where value set in pixels. There are only two kinds of resolution, first is knows as Standard Definition of SD and second is known as High Definition or HD; second is mostly in use these days. Most of the standard resolution that are being used by many consists of below specification.

  • 720 x 576 (DVD)
  • 720 x 480 (DVD)
  • 640 x 480 (video)
  • 640 x 360 (video)

Now HD quality videos have a slightly different resolution that consists of;

  • 1920 x 1080 (Full HD)
  • 1280 x 720 (720p)

If you happen to reduce the resolution, which is necessary so as to upload a video that is already Full HD or HD to a mobile device, then you will certainly have to get it to a specific resolution and size. Increasing resolution is seldom done because the quality doesn’t improve, but only the size of video grows. Those are required when you have shot a low-resolution feed and need to burn it on a DVD, then because of the standard DVD burning requirements you will have to increase the resolution to at least 720 x 480.

Teaching the kids music instruments at a young age

This is Cris, my nephew, one Friday night, my last night in L.A. before flying back to the Philippines. He was so kind enough to give in to my request that he tries playing his violin. It was a simple piece he played yet I was impressed. It dawns on me then that my daughter has decided not to enroll in violin lessons this school year.

The daughter is still adjusting the college life so she is not enrolled in any musical lessons this semester and even last semester. But I know she has too. Young kids learns quick and priorities will be different already when they are more grown up. The daughter has been enrolled in guitar lessons as well as piano lessons from elementary grades until high school and I can say she is doing well in it but not yet enough to be called great player. Ha ha ha maybe she’ll do more better when she can have her own guitar with maple fingerbaord.

The Purpose of Our Lives…

The purpose of our lives is to be happy.

I fully agree.

Just come to think of it the purpose of our life is not happiness? It would be real sad. Right? But in the real situation, many of the people are hopeless in having a happy life.  I do not have all the understanding why some people are deprived of the happy life that they should have because to each his or her own.  Right?  Life is what we make it.  So whatever we do, whatever we say, we should be mindful because everything we do, there’s always a result.
