Carry On Piano-ing....

When she was four years old, I sent herJMC for two years... after that, she took in-house lessons for less than a year. Then she gave up at the age of seven, ever since then, the piano almost like a "white elephant", good for putting pictures and collecting dust....

Now ten years later, she dug up some old piano books.... Many thanks to some Korean series, she picked up the interest again.... she began "tang tang tang" some Korean songs... she will play the same song over and over again and...... over agaaainnn...... but I never get "muak"... as yet... lol..

Carry on playing, Girl... I love listening to them even though you play them numerous times.... to them... you are no pro... but to me, you are one...


  1. *sigh* I am musically illiterate... cannot read any notes. If only I can...the only thing I can play on the piano is Richard Clayderman's Ballad Pour Adeline...and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. =.=

  2. whoa she know how to play it! can ask foong to play with her one day! :D

  3. Oh, just like our Piano, the mice feasted on the chords that I had to have it repaired. I hope the kids will resume lessons this summer.

  4. I have a few kids at home waiting for adoption --- 2 organs, 1 guitar, 1 keyboard, 1 violin and 1 Yamaha flute.

  5. your 'return of investment' (ROI) is positive... she's playing music for you to relax.

  6. cleff: at least u know 2 songs! i NIL!

    carol: amateur and a profesional? hahaa..

    marie: cannot force on them.. they will play when they feel like it..

    pam: which do u play? all? geng!

    chris: i love listening to the notes.. eventhough she played over and over again.. hahaha..

  7. It's a good news for both of you!;D

  8. well, my organ for my kids are sitting quietly upstairs!

  9. Hey,

    Similarly, I stopped playing my organ since age 15 till now, don't think I know how to play back 15 years later.

  15. Me too! Have an electronic piano at home - bought it as Melissa asked for it. She can play...and everytime, whatever songs she played I would sing along. you've made me miss her! Tsk! Tsk!

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
