Birthday Present For Daddy 2015

00

Daddy birthday is in early December and even though I don’t have a lot of money saved up for his birthday, I think I can afford to get him this trigger guitar for his jamming sessions with his friends. I know that daddy needs a new one and this one looks really good and isn’t that expensive either. Mummy checked the reviews for this and she said everyone said good things about it. I’m very happy with my present for daddy , I know he is going to think I’m the best kid!

Closing Cottage For Winter

 IMG_3060

Mom & dad are getting ready to close the cottage for winter and as you can see, we do not have any  Royal Teak Furniture | Home and Patio Decor  for our outdoor furniture, we have to bring everything into the cottage for the winter.  So last week, we cleaned up the outdoor furniture , wipe them down from the summer use and all the dirt and grass as well as bugs that got stuck onto them and brought them all into the cottage for storage.

Mom had wanted to invest in teak furniture as they are supposed to be good for all kind of weather and you don’t have to worry about rain or the sun ray that might damage the outdoor furniture.  Mom said teak furniture are very expensive but you pay for what you get because teak furniture are made from the best kind of wood and they last up to 70 years.  When mom was a teenager, she said that only the very rich people can afford teak furniture and they have it at their pool as lounge furniture for suntanning and benches for picnics.  But now, one can get them as dining set and even Adirondacks like the ones we have above but made of teak wood.   The ones that we bought were handmade as well and they are made out of cedar wood but mom said she didn’t think that cedar wood are as good as teak.  Cedar wood is not rot resistant mom said but one can use water repellent like we did with ours but teak wood is much better.

So for next year, mom is going to invest in some Royal Teak Furniture, and mom said  the cottage will be mine when I grow up, I can always use them and so will mom’s grandchildren and great grandchildren.  I think this will be money wisely spent, like mom has taught me all my life.

Shopping For Guitar Strings

 We were up in the city to get daddy some  black nylon guitar strings  .  We can’t find any around town and usually daddy orders his online but since we were out shopping in the city and daddy had nothing to do , he went to see if he can find something similar for his guitar and music room.

Finding guitar strings are pretty easy if you order them online because the place that daddy orders them, they have just about everything and anything related to music.   But sometimes, when mummy is shopping and daddy has got nothing to do , he will go window shop for the prices and do comparison.

My Very Own Backpack For Vacation

Our summer vacation is just round the corner, we are going to Toronto for 10 days and then Disney World after.  Mom said that these  personalized kids backpacks  will be good for me since I need to have at least one carry on to put my bears and knick knacks that I might need for my few hours of flight on the plane.  Mom is going to put my name on one of the biggest one, that way , I won’t lose my carry on back and if I do lose it, I can easily identify it too.  I’m so looking forward to my vacation and also carrying my new personalized backpacks.

USB Microphones

I have been making my on youtube videos of late, you know vlogging just like my mom who makes money vlogging for an international cosmetic company.  Mom has got some  ios device  like the above to use for her vlogging but she won’t let me use them because she said it is pretty expensive and it belongs to the cosmetic company that she works for.   So my daddy said he won’t look for something similar but for kids to use.

Father’s Day Present

Mother’s day is over and now to plan for Father’s day.  I gave mom hand-made bowl and a hand made wooden tag thing that she hangs on her bed now.  But for daddy, I have to think of something different because I can’t afford to buy electronic things for him , plus we do own kind of a electronic store of such.  So mummy suggested some speaker’s cover like the this  peavey impulse 1015 , not too expensive and definitely useable for my daddy’s music equipments such as his big speakers at the cottage. I can pay for it with my own money too , like I paid for my own ipod 4th generation ! woohoo!

 

Old But New Restaurant In Town

002

For those who don’t know by now, my mom and aunt loves to eat and try any kind of food.  So when a local restaurant in town open its door again for business after closing for many years , they had to go try the food out again of course !  My Aunt Lynette called for the get – together and mom suggested Austrian Inn since we haven’t been there for the longest time.  The restaurant closed its door many years ago, when I was still very young and mom said it looks almost the same when they were there a few years ago.  Some  A1 Restaurant Furniture  might be a good addition to their dining room seating if you asked me.

Shiny Josh was there too and of course , Aunt Lynette had to photo bomb us hahaha!

Aunty Hyunjin with Jasmine (her god – daughter)

A group photo excluding mom and Shiny Josh as he didn’t feel so well at this time.

So the food arrived and this was the seafood crepe.  It was very good according to Aunty Kim.  But as you can see, the tables and chairs are pretty non- decorative and very standard looking.

010

Jasmine had fish and so did Shiny Josh.

011

I had half a portion of fish because I could never finish the whole portion.  But they were fancy and had green stuff on it coz’ mom forgot to tell them no green stuff.   Mom ordered a side portion of fries for me but the fries were a little too soggy for my liking.

013

Aunty Lynette and Chicken Gordon Bleu and she said it was pretty good.  Daddy  might like this too.

014

Mom had scallops with garlic linguine but she didn’t taste any garlic in it.  The linguine could have been a little bit more to fill her up as she was sharing with Aunty Hyunjin.

015

Hunter Schnitzer was like flatter fried pork and it was pretty good , Aunty Hyunjin gave half to mom.  The rice didn’t taste like anything in particular.

016

But the apple pie was really good, they had real chunky size of apple and the ice cream I had them of course.  Overall, it was a pretty decent meal, mom paid $31 for both of us and a $10 in tips. I do like the place but it could definitely use some new restaurant furniture.

Parking Solution At Grampie

 01At my Grampie’s house in the country, he has lots of cars and trucks from old ones and the ones he is currently using.  Since grampie has lots of land, we don’t really have trouble parking those cars and trucks that he isn’t using but when we have family visiting, then it can get quite crowded.  So , daddy is looking for a parking solution for the trucks and cars that he and Uncle Richard isn’t using but insist on collecting those old vintage cars.  The best and most efficient way to keep all the cars and trucks in order is to get some auto lifts, therefore, this summer, they will check out the safety features on auto lifts  around the city.

 Of course, I will be tagging along with them since I loved all the cars and trucks at Grampie’s and it will be an interesting trip for Grampie, daddy and I as they also want to compare prices.  The auto lifts are said to hold more than 7000 Ibs and several models to choose from.  And since Grampie and Uncle Richard both loved to tinkle with those cars and trucks, it’s a great way to ensure that both can work on those cars and trucks and avoid getting into an accident.  So I’m really happy that they are getting those auto lifts this summer.

Christmas Concert In Church

01

This Christmas, I’m very popular.  I have a school concert to go to, a church concert and a piano recital as well as a birthday party for myself and for my best friend.  For my school concert, the school takes care of everything but the church one, mummy had to buy a new reed for me.  You can  buy oboe reeds at wwbw  if you didn’t know that and mummy ordered mine online.  She said they were not expensive at all and bought me the one that I liked most.  I’m excited about the church concert because this is the first time, I’m performing with my church.  Wish me luck now!

Vlogging Mic

cats

So mummy had been vlogging a lot lately because she is working with youtube and is loving it.  But like all my mom’s new adventures , it only means more gadgets.  So the latest and the newest is this  samson meteor mic  and I’m having a lot of fun with it too because I want to make my own vlog for Minecraft!

 Mummy was using a cheap mic at first but the recording and output for the video sounds didn’t come out just right, so she looked for something better but at a reasonable price.  Mom said that this good looking mic is less than $100 USD and it comes with  a stand and all the wires for USB socket to the computer or anything that has a USB plug in them.   Both mom and I are loving it especially mom because now her vlog comes out really well.
