** This is an announcement. Scroll down for latest blog updates.
Of late, some of you might have realised that you can’t find me on Facebook anymore. No I didn’t get kidnapped or disappeared from the earth overtime. I’m still very much alive and kicking. I just felt that I didn’t have a good control over my virtual life when I spend alot of time on Facebook. Reading thru post after post about Election and other topics, friend’s posting, advertising, leaving comments, answering comments, and a whole lot of crap in FB….the list is endless LOL…
It’s a good way to stay connected, but you get addicted to it overtime. I want a virtual life where I can be in better control. Where I can write more than just few phrases. Where I can post photos of my own choice. Where I can control who leaves comments on my wall. Where I don’t have to worry people will smear my wall with things I do not want to see.
Hence the decision came that one fine day and I deactivated my FB account . I’m not upset or feel offended with what people write on FB, but I needed time off from FB. After all, if I want to write about what’s happening in my life and read it 30 years down the line, I’m not sure FB can still provide me such avenue or not. But I’m dead sure that so long as I continue blogging and paying my yearly domain hosting subscription, I can definitely read back what has happened 30 years later.
No worries, I will be back on FB, but probably it will take a while. So for those who wants to know what’s happening over here at HK, do visit the blog again or join my instagram. Or you may drop me an email if you are looking for me. One main issue I had with FB is I never get those PM notification and I’m very slacking in replying those messages.
I’m was born in 1970s and I grew up with songs like Bee Gees, Air Supply and a few others, no thanks to the influence of my brother. Two months ago, I received the weekly updates of HK concerts and saw that Air Supply was coming to HK. Was so excited, I what’s app a few of my friends and hence we bought the ticket to watch Air Supply concert.
Although it was a much smaller scale concert compared with Eric Moo and Jacky Cheung, I totally enjoyed myself. The sound system was great and they sang so well no doubt they both are probably close to 60? We even ran to the front of the stage towards the end of the conccert to take a look at this duet pair.
It’s a pity I didn’t bring my camera, hence only took photos with phone. The photo here was taken by my friend.
After the concert, we could still hear the power of their voice humming through our ears. It has gotta be the effects from blue yeti pro microphone.
I noticed that my drops alot of late. Not sure if it’s due to age or the fact that I’ve been eating out or my hair is too long? Went for a hair cut last weekend and seems to be less since then. I guess I need to start looking for some hair drop remedy, e.g. pills. Dropping hair was never my concern previously since I have plenty, but as I get older, the hair growth has probably slowed down. If one day I ever get bald, I’d probably prefer to wear a eva gabor wigs if I’m still young looking. I can’t imagine myself bald!!
Still remember 2 years ago when we wanted to move to HK, I sat at home for hours painstakingly packing all the items off. For items that were breakable, I had to wrap each and every of them with bubble wrap. It was definitely a tiring job and after slaving myself for two-three weeks, I can safely say that I’ve graduated from packing school LOL. I have become a pro in packaging for shipping and if anyone needs guidelines, please give me a shout.
We went for a picnic the other day with some friends. One of them brought along their guitar. We were having so much fun listening to her struming the chords. When we left the place, we totally forgotten about her martin guitar case 000 and left it at the restaurant. My friend went back a few days later and was relieved that the restaurant owner kept her guitar case.
Recently, a friend of mine upgraded his music studio after so many years using all the old instruments and mixers. He paid a hefty sum for renovation and turn his studio from a rut to a high class studio within the duration of 1 month. I visited his place last month and was very impressive with the equipment that he has purchased, in particularly the Mixer. Apparently he bought it at the steal of a price and it’s the best lexicon mx 400 at musician’s friend.
Both my kids are trained to ask for the bill (買單) whenever we go eat in restaurants outside. Sometimes Vyktore will ask why do we 買單 before we eat our food and why sometimes we 買單 after we eat our food. This was what happened last week when I made bagel burger for them last week.
As Faythe was almost done with her food, Vyktore asked:
Vyktore: Mommy, need to 買單 or not?
Mommy: This is home dear, but if you want to 買單 can also….
Faythe: OK, how much Mommy?
Mommy: You go put your plate behind first, then I’ll tell you how much.
Faythe: OK *went to the sink and left her plate there*
Faythe: So how much?
Mommy: 4 kisses
They both got so excited cause they gotta pay me in kisses rather than the usual fake money (slap my hand and considered pay)
Faythe: oh..ok. *She gave me 4 pecks on my cheek*
Vyktore: Mommy, what about me, how much is mine?
Faythe: oh Mommy, wait. I should kiss you 5 times, then you need to return me the balance hahhaa…
Mommy: *smarty pants of mine* OK, come where’s the 5th kiss?
Faythe: *Kissed me 5 times*
Mommy: OK, and here’s your balance. *Gave her a kiss on her cheek*
Vyktore: Whatabout me? I finish my lunch Mommy. How much is mine?
Mommy: *eager LOL* Yours ah, 5 kisses la since yours had pineapples.
Vyktore: *quickly came over and smooch me all over*
Mommy: Hey, that’s more than 5 LOL
He ran away happily without taking his “change”.
So that’s their way to 買單 at home now.
Have you ever thought of becoming a musician? I’m not a talented musician for sure, but I do enjoy good music and going to concerts. Listening to music can be very soothing, but playing musical instruments is way beyond what I can imagine. A friend of mine recently picked up percussion and recommended me to djembe at Musicians friend website to get my opinion which percussion instrument she should purchase.
Recently, the price of gold drop tremendously due to lack of demands. Maybe it’s good time to purchase some gold for investment. We’ve been wanting to purchase goldeneagle for gold coins for the kids each year as part of savings. As we know the price appreciates better than keeping cash, and the investment is less volatile and risk is lower. Time to visit the gold smith .
Working at client’s office all the time makes me feel not part of my company. It’s a sad thing sometimes, cause you feel as though u are part of the client’s employees. To make us feel less of a client’s employee, the management recently ordered some banners which they printed from vinyl banners printing and place them around our work place. Now we feel so much closer to our own company.
