Everybody loves music and most of us have its own talent of it, either being a singer or playing the instrument. I am part of our worship team at church, I usually play the keyboard. Sometimes, I also play the drums and do back-up singing. Before, I always wanted to learn how to play the guitar because it is a challenge. It take times of practice to master it and you have to have patience. But playing the guitar is not in my vocabulary now. You can use guitar to play anything from death metal to country to classical and everything in between. I remember the old days when my former churchmate played the guitar, he really plays well and he ROCKS! At present, we do not have anybody that can play a guitar in our worship team. We have an electric guitar but it has no brand name, I think it was assembled. Well, we hope that someone will donate us an aevh wolfgang. Its features includes a distinctive double-cutaway body with an arched AA maple top on a lightweight basswood back, a chrome hardware, headstock, custom-made signature tuning machines and many more.
I saw this photo on my wall in Facebook. Like I was thinking, is it really true? If yes, I will not use this at all. I immediately searched it on the internet about this 22-carat gold toilet paper. An Australian company sells $1.3M 22-karat gold toilet paper. The said company developed the extravagant three-ply wiper after using fully golden thrones in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

It's been so long since I was with my former fellow worship team members. Yes, I typed it right. I was part of a worship team before in our former church. I am the one who played the keyboard/organ and sometimes I do back-up singer or kinda play the drums. I am not that good singer and not good in drums but knows how to play a little bit if I have time to practice. But mostly, I really play the keyboard. Our church is just simple and we gather as one family. Everybody is praising God, dancing and singing songs when the worship leader leads the worship. All instruments must blend: keyboard, drums, guitar, bass guitar and singers. My former guitarist has his own guitar asides the guitar in the church. His guitar was super nice, loud and it really rocks. I do not know what brand was the guitar but it sounds pretty good. Now that the members are scattered in different places, I really miss playing with them especially when it comes to food trip. Now, some when to other countries to work and some do missions. After all these happened, we are still standing and worshipping God. As of now, we are using the keyboard and the drums. We do not have anybody playing the guitar. If someone will visit our church, knows how to play the guitar and join our worship team, then we need to get a new guitar. I have many friends that have guitars and they said that gibson les paul standard is the best. They has always been the cornerstone of the Gibson USA lineup. Each guitar comes protected in a plush-lined hardshell case with black exterior, and includes owner's manual and adjustment literature, along with Gibson's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 customer service. I pray that many will attend our service every Sunday and somebody is willing to play the new guitar.

Happy New Year To All! Before I get to the happy story, will tell you the kinda sad party story. To those who did not know, my dad was confined at the hospital last December 6. At first, it only started with a dizziness. Then my mom said let's go to the hospital for check-up. When they arrived at the hospital, my dad had high blood pressure. The blood pressure did not go down so he was confined so that there will be series of tests. The next day, my mom called and said that he had mild stroke and he has problem swallowing. He had also pneumonia, so he needs to be transferred at the ICU. He was restrained because he wants to go down and go home, he also wants to pull the tubes that are attached to him like the NGT, dextrose and catheter. We stayed at the ICU for 2 weeks, then when the doctor said we can go home and continue treating him and feed him using the NGT. But my dad is hard-headed, he won't listen to us. He removed the NGT tube twice and we were giving him food through spoon-feed slowly because he might choke. But he was sick more, that's why he went back to the ICU December 26 because he already lacked oxygen. As of today, his lungs are congested and the phlegm have bacteria.
Well, that's life. But for me, the Christmas and New Year celebration will not stop especially for the kids. Before Christmas Eve, my brother, sister-in-law and their daughter celebrated with us after dinner. They brought mango charlotte cake, chicken teryaki and sparkling wine. December 25 was my daughter's birthday, RAINE. Every Christmas day, we celebrate at my cousin's place. All of us bring food (potluck lunch) and I brought birthday cake so that she can blow. My mother didn't come with us because she took care of my dad. After the potluck party we went to my in-law's place for sleepover.
For new year, I baked Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. It was my 1st attempt, for me it was kinda sweet but they said it was okay. Well, we all know that fireworks are banned in Davao. So, we only blew our torotots to welcome the year 2014. January 1 was the birthday of my nephew, we celebrated it at my aunt's place. As usual, it was a potluck dinner with relatives.
Lastly, just this Saturday we also had a post-Christmas Party with my mommy friends at school where our kids are classmates. Our friendship started last year when Mika started school. We had food, drinks, exchange gifts, videoke and games. Here's a game we played and it was really funny!
