My Neighbor Totoro

I turned a year older last November 23 and the night before that a friend of mine gave me the cake that I ordered. She was surprised when I told her I want a Totoro cake based on a photo I found online. I told her I love love love this anime movie from Studio Ghibli and though I am way toooo old to be watching children’s movies I can’t help it, the movie makes me feel good and bubbly happy. Oooh see my cake below:

2 in 1

With Christmas just around the corner, parties and exchanging gifts one of my beloved friends has asked for the best olympus recorder ls-11 as her birthday and Christmas gift. Her birthday falls a few days after Christmas and so it has made the present giving a little cheaper (hehehe). We’d just give her one present for these two occasions. So for this year I am seriously considering getting her the recorder if it is well within my budget.

Adorable Table with Lights

There’s this website that sells unique and out of the box lightning products and I found this particular piece to be minimalistic and elegant at the same time.

The website www.lighting55.com offers this lovely piece at 3,400.00 USD and though the price might seem a little steep I find it reasonable seeing how beautiful I find the music and light flower table to be.

Acoustic Bass Case

With his birthday fast approaching, Leo made a point of listing the items he wants to receive for his birthday and one of them is a roadrunner road cases at musician’s friend. When I checked out the link he provided I was surprised and confused for I see a lot of products on that link. I though he was giving me a link for the particular product he wants. I checked out the products on that page and found an Acoustic Bass Case that isn’t so expensive and decided to settle with that.

Excited

A friend of mine who is a member of a local band here in the city was telling me something about getting something called focusrite channel strips at guitar center. He told me he has been saving up for it and now cannot wait to get his hands on these so called channel strips. I am not sure what they are really but from the look on his face and seeing his anticipation it looks like something every musician or at least every guitarist ought to have.

The Same As by ONE OK ROCK

I am a fan obsessed currently listening to this song over and over.

nanigenai hibi just the same old thing
nani ga kakete tarinai ka
kidzukanai furishite temo I can’t run away from myself

i tried to show you i’m strong
just get all along umaku amaetai kimochi ga
hetakusona tsuyogari ni shika narazu

the shape of love is the same as your heart is
it doesn’t matter who you are
so tell me my heart is the same as yours is

sarigenaku morau sono aijou wa totemo fukakai de
sunao ni wa ukeirerare
nani ka wo mada tozashita mama

no matter how much you say I can’t escape
ima nani ka wo kaete koto de
kono saki ni hirogaru nani ka wo kaeru

the shape of love is the same as your heart is
it doesn’t matter who you are
so tell me my heart is the same as yours is
tatoe hakanakutomo

kanashii toki sabishii toki itsumo soba ni aru kara
and we hold every moment cos that’s what family is for

kakegae no nai mono wo suteru yuuki nante
boku ni wa kore bocchi wo mochiawase te wa nai kedo
tokidoki naze ka tebanashite komara setai toki ga aru
hinekureta kawai-ge no nai boku

the shape of love is the same as your heart is
it doesn’t matter who you are
so tell me my heart is the same as yours is
tatoe hakanakutomo

kanashii toki sabishii toki itsumo soba ni aru kara
and we hold every moment cos that’s what family is for

gone too far for so long
got to find you’ve been right here all along
i wanna take you away from here

kono sekaijuu de nani ga arou to
boku wo aishite kurete
itsudemo sotto yasashiku sotto
mimamori tsudzuketeru

tsuyoku yowaku toki ni kibishiku
atatakana nukumori
and we hold every moment cos that’s what family is for

the shape of love is the same as your heart is
and tell me my heart is the same as yours is
the shape of love is the same as your heart is
and tell me my heart is the same as yours is

 

 

Apollo

A friend of mine has been begging his mom, dad, and older sister to buy him one of those cool uad apollo at musicians friend. Since his birthday is fast approaching he kept hinting that they get him this item for his birthday. To his frustration though neither parents or sister show any sign of getting him one. I am pretty sure he’d start to pester his friends soon to get him this item.
