Students music concert

Every half yearly, the music school have its own concert. Performers are the center's students, they practise what they playing and performance own instrument and songs individually.

I love the vocal students, they will sing songs and they can sing very well that anytime they are ready to go for talent competition.

The coming concert will be exciting one, besides the individual performance, the finale will be combine of every instruments and performers present 2 songs. I was watching them in practise last weekend, the music director busy playing and adjusting the theremini just to make sure, every tune is in place.

I'm looking forward for this great performance in June.

New Red Table Cloth

Counting down to 3 more weekend, Chinese New Year is here, so what have you been doing so far preparing this great day? Those who have family like me, we will be busy cleaning up the whole house, discard old junks, tones of curtain to wash, touch up the house to have a new and fresh feel.

When talk about shopping for tablecloth, it never be an easy task for my mum. She can't decide what pattern to use. She loves to change her dining tablecloth yearly, this year I help her to do it. I will choose a red one for Chinese New Year. I just browse through custom 70 inch square tablecloth, the hot pink and raspberry color is so sweet to go for. A one-stop shop for any tablecloth sizes, color and material you can get any of your desire here. After the Chinese New Year, I may change other color, there is so many color range you can choose from. It always a good idea to get plain color tablecloth, it easily match with table runner.

The 2015 Christmas

I love celebrate Christmas in other country, well we did that last year at Singapore Universal Studio.

Hopefully in near future, I can experience a white snowy Christmas.

At homeland, the festive feel is still strong, everywhere is so into festive mood, with big malls beautifully decorated and everyone jolly for the season no matter what religion you are. But, one thing to remember, Christmas is to celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. He is only the reason for Christmas, others than that it is just the fun is all about. Blehh..

December is always my favorite month, fills with holiday, Chinese Winter solstice (冬至), Christmas and gathering. This year even though we stay at home, but still a lot for us to do. Visiting mall is one of it and sales and events is everywhere. For the year with GST price hike, nothing we bought is cheap nowadays, so look out for sales is the only thing we can do when go for shopping.

We visited 3 big malls since the beginning of December. Pavilion Kuala Lumpur having the "Christmas Sparkles" with the Tallest Swarovski Christmas tree in Asia, at the same time brought my young one attended Pavilion Junior Club Christmas Sparkles Ball. Sunway Pyramid having theme "Christmas in Atlantis" and Mid Valley Megamall theme "The Elves Town Christmas".


Sunway Pyramid

Mid Valley Megamall

On the Christmas eve night, we celebrated at church with my family. This year is the simplest one, unlike all the past years we did in larger scale. We have kid's performance, message by Pastor and then a Christmas refreshment. We save the best day on Christmas Day for the unseen society. "It is more blessed to give than to receive" 施比受更有福, a few of our church members actually go out served the poorer and not so lucky one, they are refugees from Myanmar. We contribute some money, buy foods and donate old usable stuff for them.

On the Boxing Day, finally I make it to date my dear friend out for a short gathering at Le Pont Boulangerie.. This is an French style bakery and cafe. They are famous with waffle, we taste these:

That's the summary of my December, it is simple and quiet one.

Shop for music accessories

Every weekend that I sent mine kid to attend music class. Though it is just a short 30 minutes class, I enjoy waiting his class over. Every studio having kid playing different instruments. You will be thinking it must be noisy, but I don't think so, I can even fall asleep sometimes with their gentle music played.

This music school it is not a quiet one too, they have a separate room selling music instruments and accessories like whirlwind cables, speakers, song books and etc. They also accept repair services. Not many music school in my neighborhood like them are doing one-stop services. I always recommend this place to others as they are managing a music school, they will be more professional and understand what a customer need in music instrument compare to others.

Shop for New Christmas Tree

27 days to Christmas.....
in less than a month time...

A jolly season where everywhere will put up nice Christmas decoration. Before that, don't forget, Christmas season is not because of exchanging gift, Santa Claus, celebration and eat turkey, the main character is our Jesus Christ, He is the only reason for Christmas, celebrate of His birth to save us.

For many years being a Christian, I never get a chance to shop and deco a Christmas tree *sweat*. I just got an idea and proposed to management, why not get one put in the hotel lobby. My request got approved with a budget of RM300. To suit with my hotel team color, my idea was to get something like this, the ornaments in cyan or turquoise color mix with silver.
With the limited budget, the first place I thought of is Fun N'Cheer, where this is the only place can get varieties of deco items in cheaper price. Without wait for another weekend, I went to look see after my chores. I make a trip to Fun N' Cheer Balakong, this outlet is bigger with more choice.
Upon reach the entrance, plenty of beautiful Christmas deco in big, small and shiny are welcoming you. About 50 or more different types and sizes of Christmas tree ready for you to choose from, not only that colorful ornaments, lights, ribbon, chain, hats and many more.... All are so pretty, nowadays  many trees are comes with build-in lights, the light is at the leave's tip like fiber optic material.
I finally choose the one that lighted most shine. The ornaments color in turquoise, silver and red chain. Can't get more other ornaments as this is a 5 feet tree, can't have too many, I prefer a simple decoration.

Christmas tree & ornaments price:-
Tree - RM248 with 15% off (as this is the last piece)
2 x turquoise balls - RM5.90 ea (6 balls each box)
1 x silver - RM12.90 ea (mixture of balls and gift box)
2 x red chain - RM2.90 ea
TOTAL = 241.30
* yeah, within budget *

I have so much fun hanging up the ornaments and setup the tree. This kind of tree which build-in with light need to take extra good care as it is quite sensitive on the cable part. Those cable are placed  and hide right in the center of the tree body, it wrapped around with all leaves. Some leaves found not lighted up, it may caused by the cable has broken connection.

*** Ta...da... *** my first Christmas tree
Now the hotel lobby lighted up with a shining Christmas tree, can at least get some festive feel first. That's not enough yet, later will top up some other deco item at the glass door.
