Mr. Bean ala Bruno Mars

Fujifilm Instant Camera from Max’s Restaurant

I am itching to use this Fujifilm Instant Camera that Ace got for coming in the Max’s Bruno Mars’ bloggers event in fedora hat and was forced to sing and dance ala Bruno Mars.haha! Thanks to his unusual confidence that night and for the crowd that was very supportive of him for singing along because he doesn’t memorize the lyrics. I have a video of him but wasn’t able to get a photo. My bad! Anyway, this Instax will always remind me of Mr. Bean’s transformation to Bruno Mars. I was laughing so hard while Ace was singing hmm…more of babbling some of the lyrics.LOL. Anyway, thank you so much Max’s Restaurant!

For a shutter happy like me, this Instax is drool-worthy. I believe memory keepers are also using it for their Project Life – no need to run to the photo printing shops to have photos printed. In a few seconds, you already have a photo ready to be slipped in the PL album sleeves.

Ace in fedora hat and Nati

Max’s Restaurant gave away 2 tix + free airfare and accommodation for Bruno Mars’ concert that night. I’m a fan and wishing I could get the chance to watch his concert but I know it’s impossible because I have a little girl that is directly feeding from me. I’m sure it will be one epic night for all Bruno Mars fans! I should say, fangirl mode on!

Speaking of music and concert, I always love watching one as long as it’s not a rock concert. I have a low tolerance of super loud rock music (I consider it as a noise) same with some DJ’s mix that aren’t pleasing to the ears. So far, I love my DJ friend’s music mixes. It’s upbeat but not annoying to the ears. He may not be using an excellent numark mixtrack pro from guitar center but he plays like a pro!

Yarns, yarns and lots of yarns! That’s all I could think of right now. It saddens me that only acrylic yarn is available here in the city. At this moment, I wanted to teleport to a place where I could hoard beautiful yarn skeins in different colors. I wanted baby yarns and some of those luxury yarns with this brand that is very apt for future projects. As of the moment, I am working on a leg warmer for little Nati but uninspired to go on because of the mediocre kind of yarn that I have. Sigh. Hmmm…I guess I’d better use the yarn ball instead for it’s more gentle on baby’s skin.

Here, I used acrylic yarn for Nati’s baby headband. It’s bulky and rough, not to mention that it’s “hot” when worn. Here’s wishing somebody will send over skeins of baby yarn that I could try.

Yellow is not my fave. It's Mom's! #babynati #4months1week #crochet

Playlist for Nati

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.
