My Dad's Turntable

During the early 80's, turntables still exist in every household. Boom boxes came yet some still have this old-fashioned gadget and we were one of those people :-) My dad had a turntable and it was even kept after he died in 2001. Actually, even up this time, that gadget is still at my mom's place but will not play anymore.

Right now, turntables still exist but are already upgraded just like the numark ttx direct-drive turntable. You can check sites for this and see the features they added. I now wonder if my late dad's old Beatles collection would still play on this turntable.

Our High School Reunion

Sharing a picture of me on our 25th Silver Jubilee Homecoming last July 1, 2016. We had a Coachella-themed party and looking for something to wear on that day was somehow exhausting. So I ended up wearing this boho-inspired dress. Thankfully, I was able to keep the earrings I bought from years ago because it saved my night :-)

So, how do I look?
Quite uncomfortable with my rarely dolled-up face, lol

She's Finally Interested!

The other day my daughter talked to me that she wanted to learn on how to play the guitar. She is more of a piano person but I am hoping that she will develop interest in playing the guitar. Her dad is a good guitar player and so are her uncles. I also played the guitar but not that good. And I really hope that my kids will learn on how to play this instrument. So, it was really a big sigh of relief for me when my daughter started the conversation about guitar. I even suggested to her that she could look from YouTube to learn about plucking and a lot more. 

But of course she needs a new guitar because what we have is an old one. I might check online because they have a lot to offer. And of course, with the use of coupon code, I hope to get a good deal. I can't wait for my daughter to start in her guitar lesson ;-)

S&R Membership Shopping is Finally in Cagayan de Oro!

The much talked about S&R Membership Shopping finally opened here in Cagayan de Oro last July 28, 2016. It is located at Zone 5, Barangay Kauswagan, Butuan-CDO-Iligan Road, Cagayan de Oro, Misamis Oriental. S&R is described as a treasure hunt of shopping values but you can only enjoy these if you are a member of their establishment.

There are 2 types of membership cards:
  • Gold Membership - available to individuals 18 years old and above Membership fee is P700, valid for 12 months from the date of enrollment of primary cardholder. Gold member may add one extension card at P400 fee.
  • Business Membership - available to business owners and managers; allows the purchase of products for business, personal and resale use. It costs P900 with one (1) free add-on card, valid for 12 months from the date of enrollment of primary cardholder. You can add 3 additional cardholders to existing business membership account.
Once you are a member of S&R, you can enjoy a lot of benefits and perks not only in Cagayan de Oro but to all S&R branches. You also get to enjoy exclusive deals and discounts including imported items. Also, when you sign up for membership, they will give you the value coupon booklet with more than 65,000 in shopping values.

Prior to their opening, S&R invited members from the media and I was fortunate to be a part of it. We were given a tour of the site by the VP for Operations, Mr. Greg Keyer. After which, we had a brief press conference.

I bet some of you already visited S&R but to some of you who did not go there yet, let me show you a picture video I made. I hope this will help you decide which items to buy when you are going to shop at S&R.
My friend from Ozamiz City went shopping at S&R last weekend and told her to send me pics of some stuff she bought. She sent me this pic instead, just 2 carts full of goodies! She said she will shop for more and hope we'll see each other at S&R when she comes back :-)

And oh, by the way, did it ever occur to your mind what S&R stands for? I was thinking it was all about Shop and Retail but I know it was not correct. So I googled it and found the answer. It actually stands for the name of the founder: Sol and Robert Price, founders of the Price Club, which has since merged with Costco. Costco is actually a part owner of S&R. So there, now we know ;-) 

Have Fun Shopping guys!
Yours truly at S&R

Corpus Christi 91 Photoshoot

Last July 1, 2016, Corpus Christi High School Batch 91 had their 25th Silver Jubilee Homecoming. They had a Coachella-themed party which I will be posting soon. On July 2, 2016, there was a photoshoot for the alumni in their Alma Mater together with their former Principal, Dr. Alfonso del Fierro. Shown below is a picture of batch 91 but they were not complete as some could not really make it. Some lived outside the country and some already had previous appointment scheduled on this day and it was impossible to cancel it.

The photoshoot was fun even though it rained so hard. Despite the absence of others, there were still pictures of them being held by some classmates. After the photoshoot, the alumni went to Apple Tree for lunch and to spend more time together.

Corpus Christi Batch '91 (Teaser)

Our reunion will finally take place next week - July 1, 2016 and I am looking forward to see my classmates once again! We will be celebrating our Silver Jubilee Homecoming and everyone seem pretty much excited about it. We were the first graduates of our school and we were so proud of it!
It's just hard to believe that 25 years had passed already.

Anyway, I made this short video dedicated to our batch. Hope to post a longer version soon. And in case you haven't read my previous post or in case you might wonder why there were only few students you see in this video, it's because there were ONLY 24 of us graduates.

The school has grown bigger now, many students are enrolled there and I'm happy for it. I will always be proud of being a Corpus Christi product ;-)

Corpus Christi Batch '91 Celebrate its 25th Year!

I am one of the pioneering batch of Corpus Christi School Class of 1991. This year, we decided to hold our 25th year Silver Jubilee reunion on July 1-3, 2016.

We are currently busy with what to do on our get-together. We created a committee who will take charge of a specific task. So far, I've been assigned to make a video for our class, make invitation for our former teachers and make some reservations at the venues we plan to hold our get-together. Tarpaulin and tokens for everybody were also assigned to me. And I'm not even a superwoman!

But I had fun doing these because I know I can. As long as I know what I am doing and familiar with the tasks assigned to me, I have no problem doing it ;-)

Just to give you bit of an info, since we were the pioneering class, there were only 24 graduates in our batch. Yes, senior batch of 1991 had only 24 graduates! And that's something we (the 1st grads) are really proud of!

What's exciting about our reunion is that our classmates who are now residing outside the city will come home just for this event. And we are so excited to see each other once again...

Congrats to our 25th Year! Here's a picture of batch '91 with our Class Adviser Mrs. Santos and HS Principal Dr. Alfonso del Fierro.

Best Focusrite Clarett

If you want to enhance the audio of your music, then try getting Focusrite Clarett. This has been used by many musicians because of some additional features. They also liked the new range of audio interface that combines a new preamp design with the latest in thunderbolt technology. I guess you, musicians, are very familiar with that. 

You can browse thru the internet to get more details on Clarett. There is also a video that you can watch on how to properly use the item.
