Thanks, goodness! I am up again in the blogosphere. Worry-free now that this site will suffer deletion. I totally forgot to pay for the domain name renewal within the period to renew it. In the last minute of its deletion, my host server uplifted me. I am referring to Job Oberio, the owner of He renewed the domain name even without receiving my payment yet. I was only able to pay this afternoon in the bank. I am glad to have paid the two years domain name registration of this site. It will save me from the hassle in going to the bank to pay. Thank you so much, Job. You are so nice even if I had not met you.

We have a new family member in the house. His name is Digong, our little cute puppy. He is the love of the family. We love to pamper him. He has no cage and leash for now as he is still approximately two months old. He fed on milk but yesterday, we discovered that he loves to eat rice and tuna flakes in oil more than the commercial dog food bought for him! My son gives him dog treats and Digong is such a good eater! What a cutie dog he is! He had not his bath yet as the weather is not warm, lately. He is just cleaned up by way of wet wipes. The issue he has for now is fleas and we are hoping that the anti-flea will work on him. He will have his first visit to the vet next week for deworming and later for vaccination. The adorable Digong is a replacement of our demised dog named Barack. Welcome, Digong!

In the recent earthquake that happened in my province, there were a lot of destructions to properties aside from casualties it havoc to people.  Of course, the widespread power black out in my province and in nearby provinces also brought negative consequences to households and negatively impacted the economic sectors but there is one positive consequence I learned out of the power interruption. Families had more time to bond together and talk intently because electronic gadgets and wifi connection was absent or limited. One bonding moment, for example, is singing together. The guitars which were once left to stay alone and dusty in the corner became the center of attraction. Why not? Guitars have quality sound especially those that are with a quality compressor pedal built in on it. The sound of our guitar at home signifies it has a quality compressor pedal. Its sound is a far cry from the cheap guitars sold in cheap musical stores. I sure have the best buy for the cost of my guitar.


Sleeping late in the night recently has been frequent for me. Why? I keep on tweaking my new cell fone for the familiarity of its features. I relish on the feeling of having a new cell fone, excitement runs over me to try on its camera which has a better image resolution than my old cell fone. I now use the earphones, too as I love the sound quality of this new cell fone. I waved goodbye to my two-year old cell fone and handed it down to my younger son. Well, it served me best for the last two years that it was in my possession. But, I found a better alternative and so my new fave is now my new cell fone. I have a bigger data plan now for my new cell fone. Anytime, when needed I could access the internet and other sites as I have a faster access now to the internet. I feel pampered and loved with my new cell fone.

The recent fiesta in my city, Tacloban City, was so festive. There was the parade of lights during the night of June 30. For each cluster of contingents, there was a musical band from the bugle corps of participating schools. Music played a great part in the festivities. I remember way back in high school when I was a member of the bugle corps of my school. We rehearse new dance songs from time to time. I played the clarinet. Every music played does  not go well without the clarinet. There were two of us in the band that played the clarinet. The school provided our clarinets. I wonder if the clarinets were best buy from musical stores that have clarinets for sale. I know of a place to visit that that sells quality musical instruments. Aside from the best quality of musical instrument, there is also the best sound quality. Best value for money, indeed. Next year, I am pretty sure that the street parades will be as good as the recent one or maybe even better than it.

Earthquake in Leyte on July 6

An earthquake shook this part of my province at a magnitude of Intensity V. It happened at 4:03 pm. I was still in the Office when it happened. I had the slightest idea that the earthquake will not have that intensity and duration. The depth of focus was 050. According to Wikipedia, in seismology, the depth of focus or focal depth refers to the depth at which an earthquake occurs. Earthquakes occurring at a depth of less than 70km (43mi) are classified as shallow-focus earthquakes, while those with a focal depth between 70km and 300 km are commonly termed mid-focus or intermediate-depth earthquakes. My goodness, the earthquake that happened in my place was of a shallow depth, however, it caused tremendous damage to many infrastructures and caused casualties to the most number of people. Fear once again gripped among many especially the children and those that have experienced the wrath of the strongest typhoon, Haiyan about four years ago. I hope that they who are most affected will fastly recover.

I love to watch song contests on the television. It connects me to my passion in singing. Singing also binds my family together as my kids love to watch singing contests, too. I and my siblings judge the contestants in our own way. We are also able to judge whether the sound system and the microphones being used are of quality. The national television network we watched today which hold the singing competition over the years now is one which has the best musical instruments. They must have brought their musical instruments from a reputable musical instrument store such as one I know of at .  The real voice of contestants in the contest is what people hear and judging becomes objective. The deserving singer contestant who has the quality voice gets to win and the judges get to enjoy their job of judging.

My family is sad about the loss of our favorite dog named Barack. Barack aged about 7 dog years until his demise. Barack has been loyal and friendly to my family. He protected my family in multiple ways. He provided us with a sense of security every day and night. To strangers, he is unfriendly and snob, and with his loud voice, he barks steadily. He disliked being caged and tied. He wanted no restriction on his movements. We confined him inside our gate but he would go out at the very least opportunity. He was a survivor of the strongest Typhoon Yolanda. He had a scare of rains and thunders after that typhoon until his demise. He insisted on coming inside the house damaging the door and windows screen whenever the door is not freely opened to him. Last Monday, July 12, Independence Day we did not know it was his last day with us. He had to be shot to death because he had acted strange and mad. He bitten off to death his cat friend, bitten my two sons, too. We could only speculate on the things that had happened to him. He must have been poisoned by a neighbor that affected his brain. Or he must have been bitten off by a rabid dog. We miss you Barack!

I attended a team building activity in our Office last week. I belonged to team Green, the champion among five teams. There were individual and group games. In the individual contests, I was the representative of the group to the karaoke contest. The microphone did not work. The contest did not push through. It really pays to acquire not just a quality microphones, but other quality musical instruments as well just like those sold at the  musicians friend store. This way, the fun, and enjoyment is not sacrificed.


It has been on the news on June 7 and 8 of this year that the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) suspended its Automated Teller Machine (ATM) online, and mobile channel access for clients due to an internal data processing error. It has sincerely apologized to its clients for whatever inconvenience this incident might have caused. BPI has corrected all mis-posted ATM transactions made last April 27 to May 2 that were incorrectly re-posted on June 6.  Entries to correct these were made on June 7 and 8.  BPI assures its clients that no breach of their systems has occurred, nor is this a case of hacking.  It further assures that it continues to maintain a high standard of data integrity and security.  All systems and operations are now back to normal. I am glad I was not affected with this.

My extra source of income is my small store selling school and office equipment and hardware supplies and materials. I have been in this business for years now. One of my buyers is recently looking for public address system to be used during assemblies and school celebrations. I was glad to accept this order and it made me search in the net and found at and other musical equipment. This was just what I was looking for. Quality sound is what I am looking for. I have a keen sense of hearing when it comes to sound systems and reading from the description of the items that I am looking for, it seems I no longer need to look for more.

The blog links in my website have bee deleted by accident. I was in the process of deleting inactive blog links, and when I highlighted three blog links and clicked the remove button, the entire blog links went off. I immediately clicked the undo button but to no avail. I felt so helpless and blamed myself for the accident. Now, I will have to start all over again in developing my blog rolls or links in my site. My bad.

Last month, I bought a new television. It has a wide screen and a wifi connectivity. My children enjoy the wide television we have that we hook it to the internet and we watch online movies. We also enjoy singing videoke songs. We connect the tv to the player and amplifier. The only thing that I need to do for more enjoyable singing sprees is buying a new quality microphone. I wish I could go to Cebu to buy the microphone as there are a lot of choices in there than in my place. However, I happen to encounter on this site that sells guaranteed only quality microphones and I am referring to the akg c414 at I will try this one. My friend bought one and she assured me of its quality. Nice try, then.


I am sad about my elder sister residing in Luzon area. Her hubby succumbed to complications of diabetes. My brother-in -law had a three-time stroke and the last one became fatal. I am sad because I could not visit my sister to personally assuage her on this time of bereavement. My prayers for the eternal repose goes to my brother-in-law and to my sister may she be comforted with the thought that his hubby passed away to meet his Creator and one day they would be together, again. I pray that she will overcome this grief she is in now.  Condolence, my beloved sister.


Summer time once again and parents take a break from the hassles of preparing the daily needs of their children to school because it is a school break. Aside from the hassles of preparing the children to school, parents take a break from the school fees and other school expenses. Summer time is the time to enroll the children in activities that will develop the skills and talents of children like enrolling the children in ballet schools, art schools, karate or taekwondo or music schools. The latter have a lot of enrollees because most parents enjoy listening to their children sing and play musical instruments such as guitar, among others. Stores sell a lot of guitars during summer. And of course, the choice of guitars should come from reputable stores that sell quality and affordable musical instruments. Guitar Center has, rokit 5 at a great price!. Of course, there are other stores to consider but this one is worth a try! One saves time and energy looking for any musical instrument needed.


Rest, reflect and renew. It was the intention of the activity we had this morning for four hours at my main Office.  It was supposed to be a Recollection or Holy Retreat. A Catholic priest who was invited to facilitate the activity instead went on with a lecture about Spirituality. A Holy Retreat could not be had because it would entail about four to five days for it. A Holy Mass was celebrated right after the Sacrament of Confession was made. How I wish I could schedule a Holy Retreat for my family. I want to have it with my children to strengthen our bond and spirituality. Maybe, next year I can schedule and invite another family to also join us on this activity. The expenses in the conduct of the activity for sure would be worth it.

It is best to hang out during Fridays. What with the tiring days during the previous weekdays, it is best to culminate the weekdays in the park with a breath of fresh air and listen to a band of jazz music to the beat of the timbales. I used to think before that all percussion music equipment that are hollow or cylindrical in form with a drumhead stretched over one or both ends, are called drums.  I only came to know later of its variety, the one called timbales, a shallow single-headed drum with metal casing. It is tuned much higher than the regular drums. My first to know about its name, but I have been seeing this thing many times before when I used to hang out in a music band. The sound of it brings more animation to the blending of music equipment in a band.I wonder, is timbales available at Musicians Friend? Well, it is of high probability, and for sure it is of the best quality.


Been so very busy these past few days with Office work and series of seminars, meetings and conferences. Sometimes, I would talk to a crowd of audience. This picture shows me talking about the role of  Local Anti-Drug Abuse Councils in the fight against illegal drug activities.

I was leisurely driving this afternoon and marveled at the cool weather my place had today. The cool breeze of the air is a perfect weather for the month of February as the Love Month. I reached my destination amid the slow traffic without the feeling of annoying hassles because the whole time I was listening to a jazz music using a headphone. The driving and music experience could have brought the best experience had my headphone been one with a make of optimum sensitivity and smooth frequency response just like the sennheiser hd-280 pro headphones. I know where to find just what I am looking for. I would have better search its cost.

It is year 2017 already. In Chinese calendars, 2017 is year of the roosters. I do not believe in fengshui but I tried accessing a site to see what my year of birth, 1969, Year of the Rooster, brings. It says this year is an unlucky year for Roosters, that I should need to pay more attention to my safety and health. 
By chance or by coincidence, I had chicken pox at the start of the year. It is not easy to be sick with chicken pox. The itch, inconvenience and the high cost of medicines are a disaster. I would have better be careful all the time. Suits my new year's resolution to exercise, drink food supplements and sleep early.
My lucky colors according to the chinese calendar are brown, gold and yellow. My lucky numbers are 5,7 and 8 and my lucky days of the month are 4th and 26th.  
It is good to know these details for my year. Makes me think and alert.
