Concerts in Australia

The last concert that my husband and I watched last year was at Michael Bubble's concert and we always have a blast watching him all the time. I can't recall anymore how many times we have watched his shows and it certainly shows that he is our favorite. I certainly hope that we can watch another concert of any foreign or local artist this November as a birthday treat to myself. I would not mind being deaf for hours because of the powerful jbl eon 515xt speakers that might be installed in the venues.

I'm not sure whom would I like to watch next but any 80's band or singers are just exciting.

Christmas at the Land Down Under

Oh wow, Christmas is fast approaching already! Last year my whole family celebrated our Holidays at my native land, Philippines and we have a lot of fun. Our clan had a reunion and it was so wonderful because we are all complete, of course except for my dad.

This year, we have no plans of going out of the country. I'm not sure yet when to get my holiday decors out from our storage room. I have tons of Christmas decors so it will take around a week to complete all the decorating. Oh yes, I have the habit of putting decors all over the house to make our house more lively and inviting for Christmas.

I found personalized christmas tree ornaments online while browsing for some new decors (yes, I'm looking for new ones!) and they all seemed so cute and will match the theme that I have in mind. We'll see what color theme I will use for our house this year.

Gift giving will always be a tradition so I have already started to buy some gifts for some friends but I need to find gifts for the kids soon as well.

Bonding with the Family

Lately, my family are having so much bonding times and they are priceless! Even the dinner out in a small resto in the neighborhood can be considered something to remember for a lifetime because not all families can eat out all together sharing laughs and good conversations coupled with a nice wine and kid meals. Apart from eating out, we watch movies, go shopping and watch documentaries in a big gobo projector that my hubby's cousin has.

Kids get to spend quality time with us playing, reading, watching sans the video and computer games. Although they are allowed to use gadgets, we encourage them to play outside and feel the sand and dirt in their hands. Some kids don't play anymore outside as they are so pre-occupied with their games on their gadgets.

Busy in the Land Down Under

Oh wow, I have neglected my blogs for a while. Been too  busy here lately.

Work, home and some other stuff keep me busy all the time. Wish I have lots of time to do more things that I can accomplish but hey I am not complaining for I am enjoying my life as a mom, wife, entrepreneur and care giver all at the same time. Not everyone can do that so I feel accomplished, proud and blessed with what I have right now. I know there are ups and downs in life and I am open arms to accept them for that will make me strong and even wiser.

I usually have my "me"time at night before I go to sleep and have done my chores for the day. I get to browse my fave online shops for cake stuff while I also enjoy online shopping and also seeing all the ddrum packages while surfing.

My kids are growing so fast too and wish they will have a great health and life.

A Great Resource Place

The internet has proven to be very helpful to all of us in this modern times. Commumication is far much better, faster and to say the least much cheaper compared to calling with your phone especially if is overseas. There are lots of messengers and other apps that can help us contact our friends and loved ones instantly. Banking is very convenient as well though we need to be careful all the time when transacting our business online coz, the web is one big from place where hackers and mean people love to go around.

Looking or researching for something are faster as well. Google and yahoo searchers are fast to show results and that truly is amazing. Shopping is not left behind for we can shop at the comforts of our homes anytime thus making our shopping experience more fun. We can have the tendency to overspend because we can just put items on our cart so easily and pay with our cards or paypal but it all boils to our self control over spending.

Looking for gadgets, programs or software for any business are very accessible too. There are print management software at eoncode.com just in case you need one. The world-wide-web is so powerful that it can actually make a lot of people more tech-savvy.

Random Thoughts from the Land Down Under

Ahhh.. what else can I share around here.. Well, it's pretty been busy days for all of us here at the Land down under. My kids are still in school but my eldest just finished her exams last week and now she's back in the Philippines. It's quite an impromptu leave for she is up for something there. I'll just share later on what happened to her new adventure back in PI.

We celebrated my youngest daughter's 9th birthday last month and few more days it's gonna be my boy's birthday too. For sure I'll be baking a cake and throwing a small party for him but I'm not yet decided on what theme will be this year for him. All I know is that he's a big boy now and we all want the best for him. Hubby is'going to celebrate his birthday too few more months and I'm thinking of what to give ot him. I bet a raymond weil watch would be a wonderful gift for him but not sure if he wanted another watch this year. We'll see, what surprise I will come up for my dear hubby.

Right now, my plate is full so I'm still going to be busy ... that is good sign for sure..

Learning New Stuff

My kids are growing up too fast these days that there are times I wished they will stop aging..lol. Not that I'm selfish but I know that when they reach the stage where they are old enough to be on their own just like my eldest daughter, I know I can't tell them what or not to do in my own way. Anyway, I'm really loving their ages right now since I get to sepnd a lot of quality time wiht them dining out, shopping, playing, wathcing games in the stadium and more. My lil missy just turned 9 last month and I have given her a great Monster HIgh Party. All guests had a blast.

 Right now, she loves playing with her dolls, drawing, watching her fave cartoon movies and other girly stuff. She wanted to play the piano for a while and even ukelele and I even had looked on a les paul ukulele online when she mentioned about it. Let's see of her interests are still the same as like few months back. You know, girls are pickle minded most (all) of  the times.

Australian Acoustic Singers / Bands

Lately, I am starting to like acoustic guitar players and singers when I once heard a local sing while paying his guitar. I was mesmerized with his singing and his playing as his voice stood out so loud and clear, it only shows that his voice is not digitally manipulated unlike some singers who can only sing recorded songs lol.

 Here are some of the Australian Acoustic Singers / Bands that might be using martin acoustic guitars or any brands of their choice while they have shows here in there.
~ OZ-COUSTIC
~PAUL STUBBINGS
~DANGERFIELD! ADELAIDE ACOUSTIC DUO
 ~MISS SCARLETT
 ~ ELLIOT FREEMAN
~~ BLAIN & COURTNEY - ACOUSTIC DUO
~JASON MCGREGOR
~CATHOUSE CREEK

At Australian Institute of Music

I'm checking out my children's room from time-to-time and found out that my older daughter's guitar is just hanging and collecting dust in her room. She actually bought it n the Philippines few years back when she had her vacation and she used to play the guitar at the house after coming from school or when she has free time. She even mentioned to me that she wanted to get a tuner like the snark tuner at guitar center that she found online. Not so sure if she got one for herself but I bet she did.

Now that she is going to the Univ, I'm afraid that she'll ever play that guitar once again. Who knows she might, for she is taking up some course in music management of sort this year.
