End of School Year

The time of the year has come for the school year to end and our son will now have to endure a week more before the summer break. In fact, his final report card in Nursery was given to us already late last week. So far, he is doing great in his first year at school and according to his teacher he’s been improving each day since the start of the class. And since summer vacation is fast approaching, I think it will be the best time to buy travel logo mugs as gift for relatives and friends back home in the Philippines.

We’ve been waiting for our son’s vacation so he can visit his grandparents and his cousins again. We even planned of having it in early June so he will have a very long vacation in the Philippines. And I’m sure that you are also waiting for the “but” to come and be mentioned anytime soon. You are right that there’s a “but” in it and it’s a little bit sad yet it is also good in some way. It is sad because we cannot go home to the Philippines but good in the sense that we are expecting a new member in the family. Yes, I am pregnant and we are hoping and praying that God will give us a girl this time.

Adapting to Modern Technology

As technology evolves and improves so does the use of emergency lights not only for emergency vehicles but also on home alarm systems and industrial warning devices. Many have been using strobe lights as it is capable of flashing up to hundreds of times per second that is very significant for aircraft use as anti-collision lighting. And even how useful it may seems but because of high costs and maintenance it is now slowly being replaced by LED technology.

LED or Light Emitting Diode is now the preferred lighting device as it has many advantages to other type of light sources. It can reduce the overall power costs because it only consumes lower energy, longer lifetime and come in smaller sizes. Then you aren’t going to have big electrical wastes as you can replace only those busted light and not the entire lamp or lighting system thereby, minimizing the replacement cost. And in the long run, it will help minimize the global energy consumption and reduce greenhouse gas emission and a potential reduction in global warming effect.

Wearing a Tuxedo Shirt

It was only very recently, I think a few weeks back, that I have attended a formal gathering hosted by hubby’s company for their annual get together. Hubby did not attend as he doesn’t have any formal suit but more so is that he doesn’t like wearing a tuxedo shirt. In
fact, he doesn’t have one at all in his closet and even just a formal long sleeve could not be found anywhere inside. He only has short sleeve, casual and polo shirts to wear during formal meetings.

And if I remember it correctly, the only time I saw him wearing a formalwear was during our wedding and that’s almost five years ago. But in fairness for hubby, he was actually babysitting our son at that time since kids are not allowed in the gathering so he has an excuse not to attend.

Music and Modern Technology

Playing musical instruments in the modern society has come a long way from where it was before. It does not only transform how to produce music but it also modifies the performer’s competence on the stage. What I’m trying to say is that, nowadays, it is already so common to see singers performing without a mic stand. That is so true to singers who at the same time playing with guitars while performing on stage.

Technology, of the most part, has really made things easier when used appropriately and wisely yet it just seems that everything has its own drawback if and when abused. And it is quite fascinating indeed to use and apply it in your daily lifestyle. In fact, it has changed a lot of life already since its inception, may it be bad or good, right or wrong. Just like hubby’s friend who are saving to buy a guitar with the use of his online earnings. Although he is still far from the target goal but at least he is moving towards his dream even if it is slow in pace.

A Sleek Audio Device System

I could still remember those days when hubby was telling me how he got hooked-up and addicted with computer games, that five hours was just too short for him with his favorite games. He was that so attached that he bought a 2 in 1 speaker to appreciate more the sound from the games. And it seems that he is not satisfied with what he got that he bought a headphone then he attached it to the 2 in 1 speaker before he became contented and satisfied with the result.

Yet I am not quite sure if he’s really pleased with what he got but if it is Dr Dre Headphones that he is using then the outcome is guaranteed to have a greater influence. As it claims to deliver a high definition sound system and noise isolating feature. Many also professed that it generally has a better audio quality even when you plug it in with whatever audio device you will have not to mention its sleek design that is incomparable with others.
