Classical music has been part of our everyday life since I got pregnant. Now that Nati is five months old, Ace is still playing the playlist in his laptop day in and day out. I’m used to the music that sometimes I forget that there’s a background music playing. The volume is moderated though so we can’t disturb others especially during the wee hours. When the neighbors are too noisy, I wish we have an alto speakers ts115a and turn the music to full volume so we couldn’t hear unnecessary noise.
In the mood to blog (after so long!) so I was scanning my files for photos (because I want my posts to have at least one photo as much as possible) and saw this photo of a musical trio at Paradise Island Park and Beach Resort taken on New Year’s years ago.
So these men are hopping from one table to another playing their choice of music…or you can request your favorite and they’ll play it provided that they know the song.
Generally, they are good at what they’re doing and they have great voice too! The guitarist uses an acoustic one and maybe because it’s impossible to be using an electric guitar with a cable and music stand clip in tow while hopping from table to table along the 300-meter stretch of tables along the beach side. Should the three musicians be staying in one place and play their music for hours, then Manong guitarist could use guitar cable. Then the work of those three men would be a lot easier.
The man in the house turned 36 last January. Baby Nati and I have no surprise for Daddy A so I just made this birthday sign for him using Ate Ella’s (my niece) bond paper and colored pencils. Had to hurry doing this while Ace is in the CR. In a way, he was surprised to see Baby Nati holding that birthday sign while I was taking a photo of her.
Carol baked two moist chocolate cakes for the birthday man. By accident, the birthday cake was doubled because the baker doesn’t like how the first one turned out so she made another one. I cooked the all-time-fave sauteed shrimps in sprite. DadMa came over bringing with them two roasted chicken, and two orders of canton guisado (for long life) courtesy of Ace’ only sister – Anne.
We had a simple dinner (just like the good old days). The only difference now is he is celebrating with our little bundle of joy. Unfortunately, baby Nati is not in the family picture because she was fast asleep and I don’t want to wake her up for the photo ops. Nevertheless, it’s the happiest birthday, I know.
Happy birthday, B! May your dreams come true!
