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.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
