:TC - Old Equipment : My Father's Old Piano

for fun and learning"OLD EQUIPMENT" (Cameras, Cars, Tools, Computers, Musical Instruments, Rusty, Antiques,...)

This one doesn't look old because it was restored by my brother 3 years ago. This is my father's grand old piano way back 1945. He didn't enroll in any piano lesson but he can play some songs in this piano. We have this since we're born but due to his early stroke when we were young we never had the money and time to enroll in piano class. My brother had his three kids enrolled in piano classes and instead of buying a new one he had this piano restored to working condition.

This is a classic Hampton piano and it took four men to carry it from our house to restoration place. They have to separate its pieces because it's too heavy and big and it's located in our upper floor. It took him around PhP30,000 to restore the physical look and the right notes of the keys. We're happy to see our father's old piano restored to its beauty as it's also part of my father's memories. He died 13 years ago.


Hair Loss Problem

I’ve seen my father and uncle’s hair slowly recedes in their hairline during their middle age and I came to guess that my brother will have the same problem with his hair. Now that he’s in his middle 40’s I can see some indication but still he managed it very well. Maybe his good eating habit and healthy lifestyle help a bit. I learned that hair loss is a hereditary thing and I’m thinking if my sister and I will have problems like that when we grow old. Anyway if I see some hint or indications of losing my hair I’ll consult specialists or read reviews about it because I know there are options. With the modern technology we have these days I wouldn’t be surprised at all if I heard some hair loss prevention measures or treatment available for those who suffer from hair loss. Prevention is better than a cure.


Meeting Up My Daily Quota

Whew I’m so tired and sleepy but I’ve got to go on working as I need to reach my daily quota of work or else I will not be able to deliver my tasks on time. Since weekend last Saturday when blessings poured out on my sites I divided the tasks in 6 days and started doing tasks with quota. Now if I didn’t reach my quota I will add that next day which will gonna be hard so I tried my best to reach the minimum tasks I have to do before resting. I need to implement discipline on myself so I wouldn’t be caught unprepared and reprimanded lol! Some companies are strict to the point that you have to finish all tasks assigned to you so you really have to finish them all on time. Anyway they’ve given me and my friends tons of tasks for this week and all I can say is ‘Thank You Lord’


Moisturize Your Skin

My Auntie gave me good moisturizers when she came home from New Jersey. Believe me it can moisturize even the driest of skin in just few days of using it. Sad thing about this is that when I run out of supply I can’t find the brand of the said moisturizer. I bought a product here with the same contents in the package but it’s not the same quality. Anyway I don’t actually need the strong one for my skin as my skin can withstand a day without anything on it. I just have to clean it with germicidal or baby soap and that’s it. I’m not prone to pimples or acne that’s why I just need to moisturize it to protect myself from excessive exposure to heat. I’m glad I don’t have to use some anti aging product right now though I’m not closing the possibility of having one later when I grow old. It’s not bad to protect and care for your skin as long as you don’t change it. Just my opinion!


The Butterfy Test

You Are Intense Yet Happy

You are a pretty tightly wound person. You can be extremely passionate and dedicated.
And while you definitely have a lot of intensity, you don't take yourself too seriously. You still have a good time.

Whoever first said "Work hard - play hard" was thinking of someone exactly like you. That's pretty much your personal motto.

You never do anything half way. You always go full force - whether you're working or having fun.
