Theme song

The Olympics are coming up. I wonder what this year’s theme song will be? Maybe they will use more exotic musical instruments like the marching french horn. They’ve had some really good theme songs that have been truly inspiring. Frankly I’m quite excited and can’t wait to hear what theme song they will have in store for us this year and who will be singing it.

Going against the grain

Do kids that grow up in families of chefs naturally want to become chefs? A friend recently asked me this question. She and her husband think her son should take after the family tradition and become a chef. But he’s more interested in Fender Bassbreaker Tube Guitar Amps. So what’s a parent to do? I would say, let him go with what he’s passionate about.

What’s he talking about?

Over dinner, a friend was lamenting how he can no longer understand his son. His son seems to speak a different language these days. When he starts mumbling about things like qsc gx7 at MF, he could go on and on leaving my friend shaking his head.

While he’s happy his son is making a good living playing gigs, their dinner conversations are inherently about music, something that my friend, the engineer, doesn’t know much about at all. Hahaha!

 

The expert is too busy

I was supposed to meet up with an old friend of mine last week but she had to cancel at the last minute. Running a restaurant is not easy, she tells me, especially now that spring is here with its deluge of parties and celebrations.

Her phone’s been ringing off the hook. She hasn’t even had time to help her grown son look at joy jewelers promise rings for his girlfriend. He wants it to be a surprise so he’s trying to get his mother’s opinion before he buys the ring.

She’s as excited as he is. Not to mention that she’s quite the expert on jewelry herself and wouldn’t pass up the chance to go shopping for any kind of jewelry. She will have to make time, I told her, if she wants to help him pick out the ring!

 

Mr Musical

This lunar new year, my uncle invited 30 family members to his house. If you can believe it, he single-handedly cooked the entire dinner himself. As usual, it was an unforgettable spread of his best cooking. After dinner, he gathered everyone in the den, flipped a mini switch and started singing to his electric guitar. Just when we thought he’d tired himself out cooking for hours, he turns into Mr Musical and surprises us with his impersonation of Tom Jones.
