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.

The talented monkey

Did you know we’ve just entered the Year of the Monkey? As usual, the malls have been decorated to the nines for the occasion. For some strange reason, not many malls featured the monkey in their decor. But the ones who did, have been really creative. There was one with a giant monkey hanging from a tree. If you look and listen closely, you will notice the mechanical fingers of the cheeky monkey strumming a recording king guitar to the music. I must say that’s one talented monkey.

Hidden guitarist

It seems hipster cafes are everywhere, and many have adopted interesting themes to stand out from the crowd. I passed by one the other day with a live guitarist playing a 5 string guitar almost out of sight. The music though was loud enough to attract anyone passing by. It’s only when they seat themselves that they will see the guitarist in the back of the cafe. I wonder if their food is as good as the music 😀 .

A little jig maybe?

While hanging out outside one of those trendy cafes the other day waiting for a friend, I could help but notice the music playing inside that had my feet tapping. Is that a ha3500 playing or what? Not that I would be able to tell, hahaha. All I know is that the music made me want to dance right there and then. And quite frankly, if I weren’t so worried about embarrassing myself, I might just have done a little jig right there.
