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.

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 😀 .
