Hello loves! I'm excited to share the highlight of my uber busy weekend.

Last weekend, I've spent all of my spare time attending to family events, first in order - the barrio fiesta! We are one of the many traditional Filipino family who observes the Flores de Mayo ways, Santacruzan, and all. Thank goodness, I've got a perfect excuse to my hermana mayora sister for not parading around town in mestiza gowns or the likes. Gaaaah! Susmaryosep! Buti na lang meron pang mas bata to pasa-load. Haha! 

A snapshots of last weekend's Santacruzan

Hectic has been used abusively on about too many of my posts, I know. But it is the perfect adjective for my schedule really. So, we hop/jump to our next event the very next day and that was my son's piano recital at Shangrila, Makati. Feeling proud parents that we are, we don't mind the frequent long road trip just to be at different places in a jiffy to support our family's event and my son's.

My big clan. We're almost complete in attendance!

Now, about my son's recital. Before I show you the video, here's how he started the lessons. My Jairo started piano lessons June of last year. It was my wish for him to learn to play the piano while still young because I'm really, really fascinated to a person who can create beautiful sounds from that grand ivory, wood and strings made-instrument. It is an iconic instrument and I know that anything is possible if one desires to learn. I dream that my cutie patootie will be good on it with a proper training. And he's willing, which can substitute the absence of natural talent for it! So, we enrolled him in Prelude Music Centre.

And now! Presenting, my few minutes of pride and sheer joy!

My future Jim Brickman! :-)

There were 40 or more recitalists of them, him being one of the youngest. Quite a number, I know. Hence they were given only 2-3 musical pieces depending on their instrument to showcase their talent. His piano pieces were The Muffin Man, Baa Baa Black Sheep and Sail Away. He can read the notes, he knows how to use all of his fingers in both hands. Then, he'll use the foot pad when he's ready. Soon, I hope he'll learn the Adele songs and Jim Brickman's! Dreaming is free and I opt to go big time! Haha!

Please watch and enjoy this video clip. I hope you'll see the talent and realization of my dream that peeps through in this short video. :-)

Speaking of realizing dreams, here's a favorite wise words I'd like to share:

"Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism & solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity of success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream." - Lao Tzu
