Playing an instrument is cool but it is not cool if you are uncomfortable with your seat. To play a piano better, one must also have have good and comfortable piano stool or bench to sit on. Some stools are cushioned and some are not, but whichever way, as long it will not disturb one's performance, I guess that would be fine.
There are many top seller stools and benches sold online right now and you can browse on it if you are looking for a good one with a good price. Check it out while they are still available!

This is a picture of my family welcoming the New Year. Every year we always have our family picture taken be it formal or informal. This was taken at my mom's house and my husband and I decided to wear our couple shirt :-)
Time flies so fast. We are all grateful to 2015 and we are looking forward for a prosperous 2016. Wishing everyone a great year ahead, too! Cheers!

My late dad came from a family of musicians. My 2 older brothers are also musically-inclined and both of them know how to play the guitar and piano. As for me, I know how to play the guitar because I love to sing. I learned to play the guitar thru self-study and thru observation. But I cannot say I am good at it but I least I know.
I am now married to a husband who is also good in playing the guitar. We have two kids and our eldest love to play the piano but I really wish she will learn to play guitar, too. In fact, we bought her kiddie guitar years ago but she just put it aside. Now, she's already 12 and lately, she asked if we could teach her with the guitar basics. But I guess we need to buy her a new instrument to replace her old one. I browsed online for an instrument that will fit her personality and I found rogue starter acoustic guitar. I know this will be perfect for her because it is good for aspiring guitarist but I hope this is available in stores near us. However, I guess it's cheaper to purchase online so either way, we'll find a way to buy this instrument for her.

CDOBloggers held its annual Christmas party last December 19, 2015 at Boy Zugba located at Corrales St., Cagayan de Oro City. Boy Zugba was kind enough to host a party for the members where we were served with great food and had a fun night.
Below are the foods they served that made me want to come back and bring my family.
Grilled chicken tasted so yummy that really fed my hungry tummy ;-)
Barbecue, pork liempo and chorizo are just some of their best menus. Bloggers from other table went to our side to get more chorizo but sorry guys, we consumed them so fast :-p
And they also served us pancit guisado that was fresh from the pan. It smelled and tasted sooo good that I ate a lot. I guess I forgot my diet that night.
We also had games which everyone enjoyed. And we were so thankful for the sponsors for taking good care of our prizes. Thank you so much Krispy Kreme, Jollibee and of course, again, Boy Zugba.
Before we ended the party, we elected new sets of officers for the year 2016 and went home feeling grateful. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you again Boy Zugba and other sponsors. Thank you also those who invited CDOBloggers in covering their events for the year 2015, thank you in believing in us! May we continue to work hand in hand together and may we all have a fruitful 2016!
|Yours truly ;-)|

I’ve been battling different kind of illnesses a month ago. It sucks… Dyspepsia or indigestion was not a big joke. I thought I’d die of pain. But since I wanted to get well for my family, especially to my 5 and 12 year old kids, I went to see a doctor for a checkup. They prescribed meds for my tummy ache and told me to refrain from eating meat, poultry or dairy food for the meantime but eat only foods high in fiber or anything soft, soup included. From the result of my cbc, it was found out I had also UTI so the doctor prescribed antibiotic. I guess that explains why I suddenly experienced chills anytime of the day or worst, at dawn.
I also thought I swallowed fish bone because it had been weeks since I felt ‘funny’ in my throat. But when I could not take it any longer, I went and see an EENT specialist. There he told me that I had pharyngitis and allergic rhinitis and it’s already chronic. I felt bad for myself knowing that in just 2 days, I’ve had these kinds of illnesses. But since I aimed to get well, I bought all the prescribed meds by the doctor. Anti-allergy medicine is now a must in my life...
Anyways, I was glad that in a week’s time, my indigestion disappear but I had a big fear on this illness that I refrain from eating more than I could take and I also refrained from drinking soft drinks. However, there were times that I experienced stomach pain and it turned out to be gas but it was still quite painful. Thinking about my young kids scares me because I know I am not yet ready to depart in this world. Who would take care of them especially my youngest child who is quite delayed with her speech? I really prayed so hard to make me well because of my children. I gave up everything for them, didn’t even work to focus on them and I’m their only sole caretaker, I never hired a yaya or a helper for 5 years so imagine if I get sick. I pray that the Lord will always guide me and help me get better. Even today I pray that everything’s going to be fine, that all of us are free from dreaded illnesses and diseases and away from bad incidents or accidents. These were my constant prayer every single day. And I pray, that the Lord will not get tired of hearing my daily prayers.

My 2 girls just turned 5 and 12 last month and I am so proud for the both of them. They have brought much happiness and joy in our family and I am so thankful for giving me and my husband these two beautiful girls.
Although I am not a perfect mom, I'm trying to be there for them as much as I could, to guide them and to help them in any way I can. I will always thank the Lord for them and will always pray for their protection, for safety, guidance, good health and happiness because that's a mom's (or a parents') biggest wish.
To my Chloe and Zoe, know that mom and dad are always proud of you! Love you so much and belated happy birthday greeting here in my blog :D ♥
