In this generation everything you need is easy to get online. I have learned that schooling can be done at home. Some parents chose online school because they said it is more convenient and they are happy to teach their children on their own. Even online guitar tuner free is now available online and you can access directly in your own abode. This one is helpful especially those who love this instrument. I wonder if this online tuner could possibly help my daughter’s small guitar. Will check the site and see if this really works.
Many are willing to learning instruments like guitar but not all can afford to buy their own instruments. It is good to know that there are guitar center rentals available. So even if you dont have your own guitar, it’s now possible to learn this instrument. Even if you don’t have money, just be resourceful. You can borrow your friend’s instrument. I’m not sure if we have this rental instrument services in our place but if there is, this would be a good help. And i must say, learning guitar is now easy peasy thing.
Sorry this is really late post. I will try to post regularly in all my blogs, so I hope laptop will cooperate (acting weird already). Anyway, as I said before we went to Hong Kong last April. It was daughter and I first travel abroad together. We stayed 2 hotels, Panda Hotel and Disney’s Hollywood Hotel. Two nights in Panda and stayed a night in Hollywood. The latter hotel was really nice. Almost everything you see signifies Mickey Mouse.
Daughter and her cousin explore the hotel immediately, by the way her cousin’s second time in this hotel.
Disney’s Hollywood Hotel located at Lantau Island, Hong Kong

Yearly Niyogyugan Festival is happening in Quezon Province. The festival aims to showcase Quezon products such as products made from coconut tree and other products from different municipalities and cities of Quezon Province. Each town has one product to offer. Promotion of agri-tourism is also one of the priorities of the said festival.
In 2011, Quezon Province held the first AGRI-TOURISM Trade Fair that featured booths with agricultural products from different municipalities in Quezon. In the year 2012, the very first provincial festival was held, it is the celebration of the tree of life (which is coconut) and called Niyogyugan Festival. Since then, the festival becomes a yearly celebration happening month of August.
For this year the theme would be “Tara na sa Quezon: Niyogyugan Festival 2016.” Niyogyugan was derived from the words niyog (coconut) and yugyug (to move to a beat). So expect jolly, lively and colorful festival with the coconut as the main theme of the celebration. It would be two long weeks celebration starting on August 15-27, 2016.

I’m sure those who are fond of using guitars, amplifiers and related electronic equipment are familiar to line6. The latter is a manufacturer of what I mentioned above. My nephew likes playing guitar. He has different guitars and even bought ukulele but left to my daughter when he went back to Canada. I’m sure he is familiar with this line because of his love to guitar. Speaking of my nephew, I will contact him because I need to ask something about guitar.
I think every child is dreaming of visiting Disneyland. I promised to my daughter that she will visit this place one day. I never thought that it will happen this year. So last April 22, my daughter and I joined my sister’s family to Hong Kong for 4 days. I was happy that my sister let me and my daughter joined them. My niece just turned sweet 18 last April 24 but she didn’t want to have a party. She insisted of going to Hong kong.
Our flight was 7:25 am (April 22) via Cebu Pacific. By the way, it was my second time to Hong Kong. My daughter was so excited because it was her first time going abroad but not riding on a plane.
When we were in NAIA I wasn’t feeling good because of the “tanim bala” issues. Fortunately, it didn’t happen to us and enjoy Hong Kong for 4 days. Beside was a photo of my daughter taken inside Cebu Pacific plane, And below was inside Hong Kong International Airport. Their airport was really huge and clean compared to NAIA, sorry but it is true. Anyway, our flight from Manila to Hong Kong took 2 hours. My daughter was sleeping the moment the plane take off and woke up few minutes before we arrive in HK. Will post the things we enjoyed in HK in the coming days.
I just wanted to share this photo of my daughter with Yassi Pressman. She is a Filipino-British model, actress, television personality, occasional singer, persistent dancer and VJ for MTV Pinoy. Some of her popular movies were Diary ng Panget, Talk Back and You’re Dead and Girlfriend for Hire. She portrayed the lead role in the latter movie. For me she is kind-hearted because when I approached her to have photo with my daughter she smiled and say yes to me. Aside from that she is also pretty even without make-up but I think she is not that tall. Anyway, so glad to see her in Baluarte when we visited Vigan last Holy Week. By the way are you looking for folk instrument stores. Check this link and you will be directed to the right store. Hmm, I should ask Yassi if she likes folk songs, hahah!
We spent Holy Week in Vigan City and Bulacan. We didn’t plan to visit these places because our first planned was to go to Bicol. Wednesday evening my niece called saying we will go to Batangas or Bulacan instead of Bicol. Thursday morning, my sister said we will go to Bulacan because the kids wanted to visit 8 Waves or Amana Waterpark.
I think we left our place at 1 o’clock in the afternoon and arrived night in Bulacan. While eating our dinner in Chowking, we decided to go to Vigan and come back in Bulacan. So, after our dinner we find a place to sleep and rest. Luckily we found nearby. At 7am everybody was awake and eat our breakfast. After this we begin our travel all the way to Vigan City. I’m not sure of the time but we arrived in Vigan in the afternoon. We stopped in Bantay Church and prayed inside the church. By the way, it wasn’t our first time to visit Vigan. I think 4-5 times already. I don’t know why we keep on coming back to this place. Well, we can’t deny the beauty of this place. Anyway, after visiting and praying in Bantay Church, we went to nearby Bantay Bell Tower. We didn’t go inside this tower because it was really hot. I think we were there 1 in the afternoon. As I said we already came here before and went inside Bell Tower. So we just took photos and headed to Shakey’s to eat our lunch. After we ate, we headed to Baluarte until 8 in the evening. We arrived at 5 in the afternoon and someone collected fee for the entrance. There is no entrance fee in the morning until 4 in the afternoon. I think beyond 4 they are collecting fees already. It was our first time to watch a show in Baluarte, I guess the reason also why there was entrance fee. We watched fire dancing and it wasn’t entertaining for me. Well, I had watched this fire dancing before and really liked it. By the way, there were many celebrities in Baluarte and my daughter had a chanced to have a photo with Yassi Pressman. She was kind and pretty. So after coming to Baluarte, we went to Calle Crisologo and ate dinner. We bought some pasalubong and souvenirs but this was just quick because we will go back to Bulacan on that same day. We didn’t rent a place to sleep or rest but instead we stayed in the gasoline station whenever there was a chanced. So after hours or traveling we arrived in 8 Waves Bulacan in the afternoon. The kids were really happy because they were waiting for this place since Thursday but we came Saturday. By the way, we celebrated my mother’s 75th birthday at 8 Waves. It wasn’t really celebration because she didn’t want to celebrate her birthday. But we bought foods and cake in nearby SM mall to celebrate her birthday.
We were in 8 Waves until 8 in the evening and luckily found transient house nearby. Sunday morning we went back to our place, Lucena but stopped in Eastwood. We arrived here in Lucena at around 9 in the evening. I was tired and lacked of sleep but still happy because we visited new place which is Bulacan. I hope next time we could see the beauty of Bulacan because we only went to 8 Waves. So maybe next time we will have a chance to visit the whole province. I will share some of our photos next time.
