My child is going back to school. She stopped her piano lessons for now as she has to focus on her studies. But she can never be stopped in practicing her voice lessons. Together with my sons, we do videoke sing along even in the early morning. It is fun because we are already a complete choir. I am soprano, my daughter is alto, my younger son is base and the elder is baritone. He sometimes does tenor but he most of the time prefers the baritone. Whenever my daughter plays the guitar for him, she finds it difficult to do the guitar accompaniment. For sure, if we have a baritone instrument, my daughter will learn to play it for him or maybe he learns to play the baritone himself.

What a neglect! Geez, I have practically been missing my blog the past month. I have been so much busy in the Office and in my personal activities. Whenever I open my laptop I rarely have much time to open other browsers or applications except to check my emails and do my Office paper works. Twenty-four hours is never enough for all my paper works but I don't tolerate working overtime because of my body's health. I don't like to get sick so easily because of fatigue and lack ok sleep. I take the time to sleep at night until morning for at least 6 hours because it is my luxury. Health is wealth. Getting sick nowadays s very expensive. Working shall have its own time like sleep. It is what I have set now for myself. I have finally made a schedule for my blogging. This time around my blogging will be frequent.

The election day in the Philippines for national and local candidates falls today. This is the day to put into writing the decision of every individual on whom to install as leaders of the Philippines, at the national and at the local levels. The political surveys have shown the voice of the people, chosen at random, revealing majority percentage of votes to a trash-talking presidentiable. If the elections were based on this political survey, then this trash-talking presidentiable would have been declared the winner as majority percentage of votes are in his favor. But, then the individual electorates actually casting their votes will be the final judge. For whatever the results maybe, in the end, the people shall have to respect it. The losing candidates shall have to concede.

I am happy to hear about the success of other people. I have friends who have passed the 2015 Bar Licensure Examinations. This examination is one of the prestigious professional licensure exam to students who graduate in the Bachelor of Laws in the Philippines. I know three people as of now who passed: two are my officemates and one is a friend-client of mine as a financial advisor. They passed the bar exams that is traditionally and mandated by law to be held once every year. The examinable subjects are: Political Law and Public International Law, Labor and Social Legislation, Civil Law, Taxation, Mercantile Law, Criminal Law, Remedial law and Legal and Judicial Ethics. This year, the passing rate is at least 75% average grade. Out of 6,608 takers the passers totalled to 1,731 or 26.21% of takers hurdled the exam. I salute my friends and all others who passed this exam.

This is the scenic and mystical view of Lake Danao. It is a vast and guitar-shaped lake that covers 148 hectares expanse and is 650 meters or 2,130 feet above sea level. Lake Danao is located 18 kilometers northeast of Ormoc City. It is approximately 87 kilometers from Tacloban City. From Ormoc City, it is half an hour drive from San Pablo-Tongonan-Lake Danao Road. From Tacloban City, it is two hours drive. Lake Danao is an all-year round family or tourist destination but it is best to go there during summer time. The place is cool because of its high altitude.
One can explore eating the exotic foods of the place. The small stores nearby also offer food which can be ordered and delivered still steaming hot on the time the customers choose. Try the shell adobo, shell sisig, chili fried shell, and fern salad. If you are hungry these foods will be very palatable to your taste. The number of floating cottages that could accomodate up to fifteen people is limited to a certain number as it is regulated for environmental reasons. Nipa thatch-made cottages are also available on the sides of the lake for a reasonable fee. The entrance fee to Lake Danao is only Php20.00 when we went there last summer of 2015.
It is very enjoyable to kayak and or indulge in paddled boat riding in Lake Danao. The place is so serene one can only hear the sound of birds chirping and howling and the sound of the water gushing down from Lake Danao to its nearby municipalities in Burauen and Albuera and to wherever I don't know of.
I am in a happy mode. Know why? My son fixed the header of this site of mine and I love its looks. The header now looks bubbly. Thanks for his knowledge on web development. Not that he has studied information technology, but he is such a web explorer. I am amazed at how fast he learns the instructions in the web. As a computer wizard though, he rarely gives me the benefit of his patience. He is short of patience whenever I can't follow his instructions on how to use the computer. Well, now I am thankful that he taught me how to put the image on the header. I am confident I can do it next time I change the header of this site.
I admire people with music talents that are put to good use. I am referring to the keyboard tutor of my daughter. He is barely twenty years old but he is so adept in keyboard and several other musical instruments. He is nice as a person and as a tutor, he can strategically devise a way that easily makes the student he is tutoring learn the musical chords fast. He is already making money out of this talent. Aside from the keyboard, he currently teaches drum and guitar to several students. He does not collect excessive fees, too. I wish my daughter and sons could be like him, too.

It is summer time once again. I was wanting to have all my kids enroll for a tutorial program on keyboard and guitar. My boys had no time for it so it was just my girl who was enrolled. She enrolled in keyboard lessons. I had to buy her a new keyboard for it. The tutor was suggesting that I let her learn to play the guitar, too. I declined because of the fact that she still had to develop the dexterity and strength of her fingers. Lately, I came to know that there is a way to develop the strength of the fingers to prepare the fingers for guitar plucking. It is called a gripmaster and it is recommended by many guitar players all over the world.
