Pianist In The Making

My neighbour is going to complain soon, his afternoon nap is rudely interrupted by my fingers dong-ing... C E G .. dong dong... D F A...on my piano on and off...

Well, my ex-colleague introduced me to join in this intensive course in becoming a pianist in just 1 1/2 years!  Sounds great... but can I be able to do it?  On one hand, I wanted to and on the other hand, once I sign up, I must be really committed otherwise I will be wasting my hard earned money.

I am really "big heart, small heart"... a number of factors.... I have a super poor memory and stiff fingers though I am playing with the computer keyword for more than 8 hours per day. *guilty*

How... how?? Should I join?  Fees are around 4-5K, I think....

Maybe I will go and attend the preview first, it is held in the Tower Regency Hotel on the 12th July, 2014 at 7.30pm...
My friend really made an effort to draw out some notes for me to practise at home...
That is why the dong dong dong in my house.... 
hmmmm... now... where is the C chord... Which finger... which finger.....

  3. Do go for it if the fees are not an issue. Nah, I don't think your neighbours will complain. Music is not noise.

  4. If you have the interest and can put into good use like playing for church choir, why not?...but price is a bit too steep. Whose else in the house is playing the piano.?

  5. Well, it is good to try something new, it keeps us young. It is a big commitment though. But after you learn, maybe you could play at church! And play and sing! We have a piano and I have always wanted to play. Phil plays and he plays at church. I think it depends on if you have the time, and if you really want to! Let us know your decision!

  6. P.S. the rock is real, it is not painted. They are like geodes. When you cut them open, then you find the beautiful color. They were formed in lava beds in pre-historic times.

  12. That is intensive and super fast course. People need to learn many years to master all the keys! Yeap, you should check out the preview first then decide. Need to commit yourself and practise most of thd times.

    used to play organ when I were small and quit when i went to further my study. My organ has been idle for nearly 20! Gosh! Dont know I remember to play or not.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
