45th Wedding Anniversary

It's my parents' 45th wedding anniversary this coming Monday, and we are planning an intimate party. After doing a little research among friends, I would like to engage a three-piece band to provide some music and entertainment. 

However, one of my cousins said that he can entertain us instead, but with only guitar tracks. I prefer professional artists and think that my cousin only offered because he has been eyeing the guitar at guitar center

In any case, I will see what he can come up with. Will decide if he's worth hiring and paid in kind with guitar, after he has undergone my audition. Hahaha!

Too Many Trips

Argh... suddenly received a deluge of invitations to go on trips... after a dry season of one plus month. 

Unfortunately, because one of the trips require me to be away for one week, I have to stay put in Ipoh to complete my other work so that I start with a clean slate when I return. 

But I am not happy to have to give trips a miss. There's always something new to learn, new people to meet, and new experiences to gain. 

Oh well, hopefully, there'll be something better to look forward to, and then there's Ramadhan, when travel will be halted, unless I make personal trips.

Audio Visual Fair

I just agreed to accompany a friend to an Audio Visual Fair in the city. Although I have no deep interest in AV technology, I am in need of a microphone for my job and has been recommended the audio technica lavalier microphone

I also can't decide how much my budget will be but obviously, stingy as I am, I am looking for as best a deal as possible.

And so, off we shall be going to the capital city this Friday, and get three full days of shopping, more like window shopping for me, to get the maximum out of our trip.

And I Am Off To Terengganu Soon.....

Well, it's been awhile, eh? Was on a short excursion to Pangkor. It was hectic, not a relaxing trip at all. Now, I need another holiday to recover from that, if that's even possible! 

But before I can take a breather, I have a week-long trip to Terengganu. Yes, another trip to the East Coast state. It's a little weird that all my life, I have never set foot there, and then suddenly, in the past few years, I keep going back. This is possibly my fifth or sixth trip to Terengganu! 

And I am sure I will return to Ipoh 10 times darker! 

Oh well, for now, I MUST concentrate in wrapping up as much work as possible here before I head to Terengganu. TIRED!!!

How To Choose A Mandolin

I received a couple of gifts from the wife of my boss a few days ago. They were souvenirs purchased from the family's recent overseas vacation. 

While chatting with her, she asked me if I have knowledge and experience with mandolins, as she is buying a mandolin for her grandchild and don't know which one to purchase. 

Well, neither do I! But, being the web savvy person that I am, I scoured the internet and found a mandolin buying guide that she could refer to. That's the best I could assist. 

Hopefully, she doesn't come back to me with more questions. HAHAHA

Heading to Singapore Tomorrow

I will be in Singapore tomorrow for a 6D/5N trip. Can't say I am looking forward to it after a month planning for it excitedly. Why? Because I just received a piece of negative news that would render my whole trip meaningless. 

Singapore is such an expensive country... why would I even want to go there? But since my trip has been planned, would I enjoy myself there?

I will try to, and not keep thinking about how much things cost in Ringgit Malaysia! 

Argh! I am so stressed out. Will have to work triply hard when I return to pay off my credit card debt incurred from this trip! Boo!

Christmas Gift Idea

My sister was telling about the music room that her husband is building, and how he is looking for equipment to fill it with.

And from one of the things she said, I suddenly remembered that I have to get two Christmas gifts for them. One for him and one for her.

I think that it is the right time to get the Line 6 AMPLIFi FX100 for him since it's something that he could use fully and enjoy, in his new music room.

But when it comes to thinking about a gift for my sister, it is going to be difficult. As they always say, it's easier to get a gift for a man than a woman. Isn’t that true?
