We are constantly looking for musical instruments , from guitar to amps and its accessories because we love our music. We also source for things for our customers at the store or for friends and everyone ask me where they can get some really good but reasonably priced musical instruments. Of course , I asked them to check out https://www.guitarcenter.com for they do have lots and lots of things from drums , to audio equipment and more. So if you are like us , and need some good and cheap musical instrument , check the above website out.
Jazz festival has always inspire us to be musicians for the month since I was young. And now my nephews and nieces are the same, easily inspired or do I called it easily swayed. One year I remembered we had to get some squier guitars at musiciansfriend.com for them because the want to form a band after watching a Jazz festival that we had brought them with us as a treat. Their parents complained that it was an expensive treat in the end.
So this year for the Jazz Festival in the city , we are not going with any teenagers or wanna be musician or Jazz player, we will be heading out to the city in July and staying for a few days , to enjoy the Jazz festivals as well as shopping and eating.
Some people invest in stocks , some invest their money in pokemon cards but in our family we invest a lot in musical instrument as we all love music. Therefore this year we will be doing the same like every year and will look at the kind of instrument that we want to purchase during the year and save for it or when the childrens’ birthday is round the corner, we will get their aunts and uncles together and get them the specific ones they one.
This year we are looking for a baby grand for my brat , but you and I know that a baby grand is going to cost us like $10K. It is an investment and we knew that this day would come soon as she had been playing the piano for a few years now and the current Yamaha digital piano is not really that good enough for her anymore. So we are saving for a baby grand for her and in the meantime, we are checking out good online sites to see if we can get her one at a reasonable price , they sometimes do have good sales online.
The kid wanted a banjolele for her birthday and since I don’t know the difference between a banjolele and a ukulele , I had to get some expert advise from the music shop that sells them. And I learned that it is a banjo and a ukulele as well – interesting. And I think I saw a banjolele in the Netflix show Orange is the new black , in one of the episode, someone was playing the bajolele. I wonder if it is hard to learn the instrument but the kid argued that she is very interested in it , so here we go , buying her something she want to pick up . Banjolele can range from $100 – 300 in the music shop online, so we will go with the mid -range one for her and hopefully, she will love it and we will get her a better one.
I’ve been to many live event and concerts when I was living in Asia but after migrating to the west , I hardly go because I lived in a small town. So when the spouse suggested that we attend a music festival out of town , I was quite excited but alas, his type of concerts are loud and noisy. The pa speaker system must be really good because it was extremely loud in the outdoor venue but the spouse loved that kind of music , Rock , so I just went along to be a good sport.
I normally do not like to write about my opinion on churches or any kind of religion but this morning, I saw an article on Yahoo about Sun Ho being ordained to be the pastor of CHC , I have no choice but to say my piece as well.
Being brought up by a “christian” mom from a single home with many so called church friends and family , I had first hand experience with these “godly” people. Although, from all that I’ve read thus far and testimony from ex CHC members, I have to say that the church I grew up in was pretty mild as compared to CHC. CHC is almost cult like from what I’ve read. And to ordain Sun Ho as the new pastor right now, after 6 were being found guilty of CBT , now that is a real joke.
Sun Ho and her husband Kong Hee openly embezzled money from the church , the people’s money and yet , they are ok with it? the church is ok with it? In the first place, using her singing to break into the American market to so called reach out to the non-christian is a joke by itself already. And seeing Sun Ho in all those video clips many years ago, I already knew that this is the work of Satan and not God – God would never, never ask anyone to do that.
Ok lets talk about my own experience with the church some 40 yrs ago, yes, yes ! I’m an old fart ! hahahah! this is by far going to be my longest post but since it’s an real experience, one cannot help but give my take on it. I looked at Sun Ho and immediately if you are christian , you and I know that the bible would never approve that you dress this way or put on make up the way Sun Ho did. Jesus was sent to earth and as Christians you are to follow his foot steps and be humble. I’m not saying that I don’t believe in God , I do – I just don’t believe in the so called pastors and priests and the chosen one in church. Humans are flawed , one don’t even know if you trust your own husband or wife, the one you sleep with every night on the bed and have babies with him or her, so how can you trust fully another human being? Human beings are flawed , they only want to look out for themselves except for Mother Teresa. But all in all , human beings are selfish creatures , no one even myself wouldn’t do something for nothing or no reason/s or a gain.
I remembered when I was very young, we didn’t have much money at home but my mom insisted that she pay the 10% tithe because if she didn’t, her pastor would embarrassed her in front of her church friends. Yes ! that was how paranoid or how they made her feel. Shouldn’t anything you do for the church or God be answerable between you and God ? if you had to answer to men then it is wrong and moreso if the pastor had to remind you or to push you for the 10 % tithes – What the hell right? it’s like daylight robbery with a license ! So No !!! I will not subject myself to that nor my children or family !
Once again, let me make it clear, I believe in a God but I do not believe in man. Men are not God nor can they be a messenger of God because they are flawed!
So by now, we all know about Eliza Sam’s dating life ? And now that here Canadian -Chinese boyfriend has just returned to Canada, Eliza is confident that their long distance relationship wouldn’t be affected. Well, good for you girlfriend! I’m sure it will work out if you both love each other enough. Nothing is impossible.
Kassidy was born 6Ibs and was given birth naturally , a proud Chan Ka Lok announced and it was speedy delivery too. Congrats to both Angela and Ka Lok and it seems only a few months ago, they had their first baby and was teased because their first child wasn’t a beauty. But kudos to Angela for willing to have another baby so quick and this time, Angela said the baby looked like Ka Lok. What do you all think ?
We don’t really have much of a Karaoke place in town, so many of our customers have karaoke in their home. They would come in looking for cbi cables to buy and even though we do sell the microphones, we don’t carry the cables as we don’t have the space to put in so many inventory for karaoke. So we out-source and tell them where they can get good and cheap cables and help them get it online. Sure they have to wait a little but at least , they know that they are not paying outrageous prices for them and they come from a reputable music shop online.
Moses Chan seems to be in a lot of tv shows these days and his acting seems to be a stale mate recently too , with the strange and high pitch voice, it can get very annoying. But Moses seems to be cast in a good role all the time , so you can’t hate the guy even if you wanted to.
Myolie Wu is cast as the blind girl in this tv show and they quickly fall in love in the end. But I asked my friends if one can really fall in love with a blind girl and most said yes but in real life , would a guy who has a good job , makes good money want to have a girlfriend or future wife who is blind ? wouldn’t she be a burden to him and a hindrance to his advancement for work. And is her blindness heredity ? so if they have babies , can the babies be blind too when they grow up ?
It is a good tv show but I don’t find it so realistic lor !
Magazine Photographer Sung Tin Chung (Myolie Wu) because of an accident, lost her parents also lost the light, natural beauty and drama but did not have low self-esteem, boyfriend To Ching Hang (Jonathan Cheung) and accompanied by a guide dog that she gradually regain their confidence, her seat is the right one chrome “Love is omnipotent,” became her out from the pain to the strength of this ad creator mended Kam Yin Chong (Moses Chan) now lives in her next door. Because addiction work order too serious to lose all my friends and colleagues, even apprentice Yuen Yuen (Elaine Yiu) also decided to resign, too serious a little lost, decided to put a long holiday and return to the old home life, lost and old friends Yue Kar Ging (Evergreen Mak). Back to the old way, not to make a new start too serious, leaving him to re-understanding of their own, faithless boyfriend again that day from a low ebb, it is fortunate to have too serious to become a guardian angel beside, two totally unrelated character actually rub out of love spark, but found that seeing blind spots, but this is too blind to see the light……
Like many of you would know I don’t like the old fashion kinda drama from TVB because I’m more into the now factor but the above drama caught my attention because Tavia Yeung is in the show. Anyhow, I watched the entire show and really liked it and I think you might just enjoy it too. I had links to either download them or watch them online, so I was indeed lucky. Check out the drama.
Louis Cheung appears to be a cop who can easily betray his own dignity and accept bribes. While investigating a human trafficking case, he meets Tavia Yeung, a woman who has taken a vow of celibacy. Tavia and her friend, Lin Xia Wei, had been kidnapped when they were young, thus, they hate human traffickers. They equally hate corrupt public servants, with the exception of Louis’s colleague, Matt Yeung, whose upright and honest character catches Tavia’s eye and she even falls in love with him. Louis and Matt are initially polar opposites, but after Louis’s acceptance of a bribe causes the death of a witness, it starts to touch his conscience. However, at the time, the police and the underworld each had their own unbreakable, unwritten laws. Matt is demoted amidst the power struggle of businessman Lau Kong and detective Timothy Cheng. It puts his relationship with Tavia to the test. Seeing all of this, Louis’s heart aches, but all he can do is stay silently by Tavia’s side and secretly hope that he can make up for his past mistakes…
The last time I went to Eason Chen’s concert was like 10 years ago in UK and it was sold out then. This year , he is having one in Toronto and Vancouver in December and before the ticket is sold out again, I’m going to book in advance. Tickets goes from $88 to $388 and obviously, the $388 ones are the ones nearer to the stage. I don’t know what it is about Eason’s concert but the songs he plays are always so beautifully delivered. Someone mentioned that he uses oc1 pickup for his guitar but I don’t know for sure but whatever it is , Eason’s fan just loved his rock and pop concerts and I for one isn’t going to miss this one either.
I’m just done watching Limelight years and yes, I’m late with the review again but I thoroughly enjoyed it albeit the fact like most drama one watches these day seems to be almost the same and the ending seems too happy.
But it is Liza Wang as well as Damian Lau , 2 veterans , therefore, one must watch for sure. I think it is a 21 episodes , so not too long or short and I do like Linda’s acting , so do check it out , the links are available I am sure.
I’ve just finished watching Romantic Repertoire a tvb sitcom of 21 episodes and I’m pretty happy to inform you that it was a pretty good sitcom. 21 episodes seems a wee bit long to me because the end of the story was in such a hurry to end. Wasn’t the ending that I was hoping for , but it was as close to reality as I could tell.
TVB has outdone itself this time with this sitcom. Moses seems to be acting like himself in real life it seems but Joyce Koi seems to be a little bit too old for being the leading lady? Joyce’s real age is 49 years of age but is acting for a 39 yrs old, even though she pulled it off really well – to pair her up with Moses, seems a little off in my opinion. Of course, I understood why they put her in this sitcom because Joyce is actually an opera singer in Hong Kong and a famous one if I am not wrong.
Louise Lee portrayed a very good mother/manager for Joyce (Kan Kit) and I also saw old actor like Pat Poon as well. Although Pat Poon was placed in a very small role, it was good to see some oldies around still.
Interior Designer Moon Sing-hong (Moses Chan) purchases a flat in anticipation of marrying his longtime girlfriend who is expected to be returning home soon after studying abroad. Without his knowledge or permission his older sister rents out his flat to popular Cantonese opera singer Kan Kit (Joyce Koi). Unable to break the rental lease, Sing-hong uses all kinds of tactics to try to make Kan Kit move out but her manager Lin Sau-fong (Louise Lee) helps her stand firm. When Sing-hong’s best friend and business partner Tin Hak-kan (Evergreen Mak), meets Kit he develops an instant attraction to her and ask Sing-hong to help him pursue Kit. In order to help his friend with love Sing-hong gets close to Kit to find out about her interests. The two soon work out their differences and become friends. However their typical life is turned upside down when Kit gets into a car accident and finds her biological mother, while Sing-hong finds out his longtime girlfriend has been living in Hong Kong all along with another man.
We do not have a busker’s festival in our town but in the city , every year they do have a huge festival inviting buskers from everywhere and as far as Australia to come for the festival. The festival draws in loads of tourists from around the county and many from the USA. I especially loved those flat top mandolin and the violins as well as harp , and we try to go for the festival every year. But if you are thinking of doing the same as I , make sure you bring lots of sun screen , a good walking shoes and preferably a small portable stool, you may need that with hours of busking all around the city.
I first saw the news on facebook but you and I know that this isn’t the first time that some people wants Jackie Chan dead it seems. There is even an RIP Jack Chan on Facebook but Jackie Chan is very much alive. So die hard fans of Jackie, do not cry just yet.
Jackie Chan expresses that he was shocked with the news that he is dead but he isn’t the only celebrity reported to be dead a few times. It seems like Jay Chou has also been targeted quite a few times.
Direct translation – Duck King ! hahahha! too funny ! I just saw an article on it and how hong kong actress Candy Yeun is begging people not to watch the leak version but go to the theatres because it’s clearer and is of HD quality. It is said that Candy Yeun stripped for an audition with the director and the director was really pleased with her figure. So much sacrifices to be made for a movie but I guess if you are confident about your body , you won’t mind eh?
Apparently, the cantonese version was leaked like a few months ago , and I didn’t even realized it , how horrible I am. Anyhow, I found it with my source but haven’t watched it yet – those who wants to watch it , you know what to do. Who cares if it is HD or not right? lol !
The Gigolo opens with a fleeting glimpse of a massive prosthetic penis, so obviously this shouldn’t be your destination if you’re seeking cinematic class. He Jufeng innocent man (He Haowen) glamorous appearance, but different intrinsic nature Treasures “convex” out of the limelight easily become school fans. He was forced to drop out because of a fighting incident, the mother duck sold in markets (Lu Wan Yan) because of spine problems and downtime, suddenly became the family breadwinner front, life is so earth-shaking changes occur … in front of single-minded cousin red sister (Elena Kong ornaments) duck shop operated as cleaners, but handsome appearance and personality is often silly not molested
15 years old Etta Ng, the illegitimate daughter of famous Jacky Chan wants to meet her biological father. And who wouldn’t if your father is Jacky Chan right? And for Jacky to not do anything with Etta , I think that is so freaking wrong ! you fathered the kid, you better have some sort of relationship with her.
Etta I heard, tried committing suicide because she misses her biological father and her mom – the once Hong Kong beauty queen had resorted to drinking because of stress at work and home front. So Jacky Chan – do the right thing !
As for what Jacky Chan had said thus far ? to let nature takes it course ! yah ! right ! apparently your actions produced the kid , so take care of your own asshole !
Just done watching Noblese Oblige which was for viewing in December and it took me this long to get to it as there were too many tvb series. If you are like me, I only watch period tv shows when I have nothing much to watch. So I started watching without much expectations as you all know that period shows are quite the exaggeration of the real thing but it was fun to watch how our ancestors used to live.
Nuns-to-be Tavia Yeung and Cilla Kung are desperate to find money to treat the head nun’s illness. By coincidence, they meet the wealthy heir of a bank (Kenneth Ma) and are forced to become maids at his household to repay their debts. Tavia often has to save Kenneth from trouble with her superior martial arts skills. Although they disagree with each other, they still support each other during critical times and unconsciously develop a strong bond. With the help of a nobleman, Kenneth becomes a magistrate. His career goes smoothly with help from his brother Joel Chan, who is a governor, and good friend Benjamin Yuen. However, Kenneth soon discovers the corruption and abuse of power in the political world. People around him will act in perverse ways for the sake of personal gain. When he discovers the truth behind the massacre of Tavia’s family when she was young, it gets them both thrown into jail…
I did like the tv series that consisted of 20 episodes and it kept me interested till the end. Tavia Yeung is someone I like watching too, so it made it easier on the eyes. For those who are contemplating whether to watch this tvb series, you can definitely give it a try.
