Looking at excellent Pearl cymbals at musicians friend reminds me of a friend who used to play cymbals when we were in college. Actually he never was the musically inclined type of person, he's sporty and rough and there seemed to be no trace of being creative or artistic in his blood. But then he needed to join the band to keep his scholarship. The good thing about him is that though he was not into it, he was very determined and became one of the best cymbal players of the band. And from what I know of, even now, after all the years passed, he still plays it, which means he really did learn to love it.

One of the husband's favorite Filipino dish is the Mung Beans Soup with Coconut Milk. He just loved it so much to the point he is craving for it every now and then.

We both work outside so at home we are hectic and just grab or eat anything that is quick fixing you know. However, during my offs, i make sure i cook everyone something delicious and extra special!

To sing your heart out is definitely one of the joys in life. Whether you have a nice voice or not, who would care? You can do it in the shower or you can feel like a true diva in front of friends or family. When I saw this classic blue microphones at musicians friend, I suddenly feel like singing. It's been decades since I had karaoke with friends and I really do miss those good times. Looking forward to doing it again, I just wonder when.

I just love the look of my China cabinet right now. I started collecting my stuff so i can display it inside way back November of last year, when my mother in-law gave me her antique China cabinet. I must admit ever since when i was younger, i have the fascination of glasses, name it! From wine glasses to shot glasses, plates, condiments and stuff  that you seen inside a china cabinets and things like that, as long they look unique and rare to me or specially the limited edition kind of stuff.

So far, i have few of unique and custom wine glasses inside, i got it as gifts from friends and families, they know me well and they love giving me this collection, lol. Everything inside are very significant to me and i just can't believed how much many I've collected so far now.

It stuffed and vibrantly pretty, it just the way i love it! Every time i glance at them am enjoying the look of my china cabinet. I want them well organized and in the perfect places where they should be. Wink.
