The Age of Information

With the convenience of technology we have today, it is a fact that the age of information makes our life more convenient and easier to deal with. From how we used to bake cakes down to practicing a certain music instrument, things are definitely not that difficult to begin our venture with particularly if you are a newbie in an industry. What makes the era of technology really helpful is that things have gone better and easier to manage. A good example is how a certain musical related stuff works. A good example, perhaps, is this teenage engineering op-1, check it out at MusiciansFriend.com. Aside from that, finding for reliable sources of information is so easy just like counting 1, 2, 3. And considering how we earn, technology indeed plays a major role towards one’s success. So if you think that technology has a bad impact of today’s generation, it’s just a matter of how we use it.

Where to Find Awesome Gifts?

When it comes to finding gifts, online shops are the convenient ones to run to. With different items to select, from toys down to other niche like music instruments, you can never go wrong in looking for an online shop.

There are a lot of shops where you can find sorts of stuff such as an ocean drum, dresses, dolls, toy cars, and more. It’s just a matter of how smart you go in finding stuff online. However, in selecting shops, it is always best to know if that is reliable enough to be trusted. With that, just to be safe, always go for those sites that have been in the business for years already. But if the stuff you are looking is from a new site, you can always go for investigation to know if it is reliable or not.

Working Out Too Much?

Lately I am feeling something on my left side of my abdomen. I am not sure what it is but surely I am experiencing it just whenever. It happens at home, it happens after work out, it happens before I sleep, it happens anytime, anywhere so I really can’t pin point what’s causing the pain. It couldn’t be apendicitis since it’s on the left. I don’t think it’s kidney problem too since I don’t feel anything when I pee. Someone told me I might be dehydrated and that’s my number one suspision.

According to WebMD website, Dehydration is a condition that occurs when the loss of body fluids, mostly water, exceeds the amount that is taken in. With dehydration, more water is moving out of our cells and bodies than what we take in through drinking.  We lose water every day in the form of water vapor in the breath we exhale and in our excreted sweat, urine, and stool. Along with the water, small amounts of salts are also lost. When we lose too much water, our bodies may become out of balance or dehydrated. Severe dehydration can lead to death. (source:http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/dehydration-adults#0)

Based on my understanding on this article, there’s a possibility that I am dehydrated. I do drink lots of water only when I exercise. I can barely finish one of my tumblers. No wonder I barely sweat and my skin is very dry. I am not so sure about this yet so I am going to see my doctor about this and hoping it’s nothing dangerous yet. I exercise more so  could be healthier and be a better person, be a better mom to my kids and husband to my wife and I plan on maintaining that for them.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to us all! May we all have a good years ahead of us.

It’s been a while since I updated my blog, I have so much to share about but I don’t have time to list them all and make a post about it. My brain is not functioning for some write ups right now. It’s like an old music instrument that needed meguiars cleaning kit before I get to it. For now, I just wanna let you know that I had a very nice start of the year, having a god time in my Zumba career, meeting new friends and improving myself more. This year, I wanted to have a stable job but before I head to a corporate, time sucking job, I am going to real estate school first and get a license and hoping to become a Licensed Realtor soon. I wanna carefully weight my options, If I am going to get a job, I wanted something I would love to do and I’m good at at the same time. I will try my best on this one and hoping to be successful one day.

New Year, New Routines!

I can’t believe I’ve been teaching ZUMBA now for 3 months!  Actually, I can’t believe that I am teaching now. All those time, I thought I won’t be able to do this for no. 1 reason – I thought I can’t memorize choreography, but look at me now memorized almost 30 routines! Memorized a full hour routines in a month! I know it’s probably easy for others but for me, it’s a huge milestone! I am so proud of myself! 12244732_1521137644870300_3528131102521374614_o

Yesterday was my last Zumba Class of the year, it was fun as usual! I had awesome participants, old and new comers, and some instructors too! in 2016, I plan on doing new routines,  I am still in the process of learning my new warm- up song, it’s a 10 minute routine and I love  all three mixed songs! I hope my class will like it coz I love it!

Zumba® Instructor Training

I love dancing since day 1. Who doesn’t?  I’ve been in dance group in Elementary, Highschool til’ College.  And after that, I continued dancing by attending Zumba in the nearest fitness facility in our neighborhood. I loved it so much that I can spend money for it more than shopping! I told myself 5 years ago that I wanted to bring it to the next level and be an instructor but I didn’t get to do it. First, I don’t have the gut to do it, second, I don’t know how to do it.

When we moved here to the States, I thought I am going to be led to a different path. I learned  a lot and did a lot of stuff and forgot about it. I did still attend Zumba classes, I loved it but ever occured to me again the idea of being an instructor. And besides, it’s not my priority anyway, I would like to find a real career that could suffice my family’s needs.

A lot of things happened within 4 years, a lot of things changed and one of them is when I decided again that I really wanted to be an instructor. I don’t know what exactly pushed me to do it. There are so many reaasons and one of them is that, some instructors really inspired me. When I mentioned to them that I want to be an instructor, they encouraged me and I felt their sincere happiness for me. Then from there I decided to schedule my training!

My husband is very supportive. He is always there to support me, guide me, teach me, and even drove me to my training venue! That’s right! The whole  Gang drove up to Kansas, stayed there for the night and had fun after y training!

My Supportive and Loving Family

The venue was not that far, It was 3-hour drive from our place. I was one of the lucky ones to become a student of one of the best Zumba Trainor, TONY WITT in his very own studio in Kansas, the  Amore Dance.

This experience is a one whole unforgettable experience for me. I’ve learned so much for just one day and I plan on expanding my knowlegde more and that is why I chose to become one of the members of  ZUMBA INSTRUCTOR NETWORK or ZIN.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my friends, fellow instructors that inspired me so much and most of all, my HUSBAND and KIDS that are always the very REASON why I have all this POWER and STRENGTH.

Tuner and its Upgrade

If you think that only guitars and higher than it has tuners, think again. With the fast growing phase of technology, there are a lot of inventions and upgrades have been made to make everything easier as possible. Just like tuner for ukulele. Yes, you read it right. If we used to have tuner only for guitars way back then, now, you can have such for your ukulele like baritone ukulele tuner for instance. There might be ones available in the past, but the latest inventions are much more convenient and high-tech than before which one could really rely on and would have fun using. So if you own one, or if you know someone, this is definitely a good one to have!

Simple Dreams

I know it sounds dumb but I must admit, one of my greatest dream is to have an original JANSPORT Bagpack! There I said it!

My simple dream and I waited for a very long time! When I was in Elementary, some of my classmates have Jansport bags, I noticed If you have Jansport, you are cool! I don’t know why they are so particular with Labels and Signature stuff, I didn’t envy them at all coz in my situation that time, I know I’ll never have Jansport bag. I thought to myself I’ll buy one when I get a job someday. When I was in college and started to get a job while studying, I still didn’t buy one, why? Coz I know the difference of WANTS and NEEDS. I know I have to help my parents and siblings aside from helping myself with college tuitions and projects. And then I grauduated and finally acquired a professional Job – Teaching,  minus the professional pay and still didn’t get myself one. Why? Coz there goes the time where my brother had kids and guess what? I’m sure I already gave you the reason. Then I had my own family, my priorities has changed. I didn’t thought about it for a long time until today. It’s funny coz I don’t have a job, but I have my ways, so I FINALLY bought one!!! To tell you the truth, I am so HAPPY  I have crossed one off my dream list!

Excited and Worried.. Sigh!

I am so excited for my daughter Ishi, I’ve finally found a school for her. My husband and I decided to enroll her at La Cabecera Montessori after Holy Week. I think she enjoyed her sit in class last friday, she likes the ambience and the facilities.
I really wanted her to have a good school. I actually wante her to study in Enopi in Malabon but sad to say we cannot afford the tuition there that’s why I am so glad I found La Cabecera. It’s not that expensive compare to other Montessories. I hope this school will meet my expectations though. The tuition is cheaper than other Montessories but this is still a big amount for us. That is one of my worries.


I was thinking awhile ago…..my husband’s income is just enough for our daily needs and amortization of our condo. I am selling house and lots and I am proud that we will be getting my kids tuition fee from my commissions. We were saving my commission for Ishi and Ethan’s future matriculation. We’re lucky we have save some for this coming school year, I really need to work harder so we could sell atleast once a month. Soon Ethan will go to school also and we have to prepare for that too. Gosh, hope we could make it. They are my inspiration and strength so I think I have nothing to worry about.
I love seeing my kids happy….I love them to eperience what I haven’t experience in my time. I wish all of my dreams for my family will come true.
