Christmas Gift Idea for Your Drummer Kid

Now that the holiday season has finally come, we are not in a hectic mode to complete our Christmas list and ensure not a single person has been left out. However, thinking of the right gift to give our kids can be very daunting.

Here’s a great gift idea to your musically inclined kid who loves to pound the drums- a roland v drums set for kids. The Ronald V Drums are not just for adults. It is great for kids too because it has foldable models with height adjustments.  The Roland V Drums also has app such as the Friend Jam which is even perfect for the young one as it helps improve your kid’s skills and also encourages improvement through practice.

Thanksgiving Greetings 2016

My family went through a series of heartaches this year (started during the first quarter) and trickled even up to November. I keep reminding myself that there are reasons why things happen and someday, I will understand them. And despite of all the heartaches and sadness that enveloped my family, I still have that hope and faith that there is always something to be grateful for. And those little blessings that I often disregard is one of them.

Thank you Lord for the blessings, great and small.

Black Friday Mega Discount On Strike Shields by TurnerMAX


What Is Expected Of Black Friday In 2016?

We all know that Black Friday is the most anticipated day for most of the shoppers throughout the world. The die-hard shopping bonanza is said to come on 25th November this year and it is quite a delight that we don’t have to wait for long as it is already the month of November. It was initially an American tradition but now it has spread almost everywhere and people are looking for lucrative bargains in stores both offline and online. Last year the stores earned hefty profits by selling products online and the customers shopped through their smartphones from the comfort of their homes and offices. So it’s a growing trend and it is most likely to happen this year too.



Huge Discount Being Offered:

TurnerMAX strike shields have been selling like hot cakes and it is to our customer’s pleasure that there is 40% discount on them this Black Friday, kicking off the shopping season for Christmas in 2016. They are an essential training gear for learning all kinds of martial arts, boxing and kickboxing. The most awaited day for the people who have thought of buying their favourite TV set all year long can get it on this Black Friday if they manage their time and schedule wisely.




Where Can You Find These Discounted Items?

You can always avail these discounts by logging on to or by visiting eBay and AMAZON which are considered giant online retailers. As TurnerMAX is already listed on these portals you can easily search for TurnerMAX Strike Shields. If you don’t want to go there, you are just a click away from acquiring those jumbo discounts this Thanksgiving. Get eBay discounts here and click here to get AMAZON discount offers. It is an honour this company has been accepted and praised by many across the UK and all over the globe as a reliable sports equipment manufacturer.



Wrapping Up:

Not only are the kick shields durable but also available in different colours. Turner Sports UK has been taking part in Black Friday deals every year providing handsome cut rates to the prospective customers as they have never discriminated against the rich and the poor. We have given equal opportunities to everyone. We believe we are here for a purpose and the more satisfied our customers are, the more contentment and serenity we achieve.

It’s Movember!



Say what again? Did I actually have a typo over there? No, you read it correctly. It is Movember! It is the month of men’s health awareness to be brought into light and take center stage just like how women have their special month of October to highlight the fight against Breast Cancer and other health issues.

Movember is actually an annual event encouraging men of all ages (as long as you can grow moustache, perhaps) to grow mustaches for a month to show their support to the movement that highlights men’s health. Any contribution brought about by this movement is donated to organizations that highlights the issues surrounding men’s health, more specifically, the prostrate cancer.

Mo is taken from moustache and the Vember form November.

There’s also the Moscars where men are encouraged to submit their entries for their grown moustache and there are rules and set criteria to follow to be eligible.

To know more about this movement, you can click on this site:

No Updates

Posted in feelings, personal by

I’ve been very busy with work and other stuff so I didn’t pay much attention to this mommy blog of mine. I’ve been down with a flu too for several days and was in bed for most part. So, I guess, I’m still recuperating but have to prepare for tomorrow’s regular work and the start of the week.

There’s no updates here yet. I’ve just collating all my artwork and still doing my online Photoshop course which I still haven’t completed as of this writing. I’m just several modules away from finishing the course so I can get my hands on the more serious things of realizing my creative biz.

Anyway, just thought of filling this page up for a while even if there’s no significant updates happening. But, I will be sharing few of the watercolor “card toppers” I have created the past few days. I have decided to go handmade cards again this year as I missed to order my personalized holiday cards for 2016 which I should have been mailing by now. So yeah, my days are dragging. I guess, 2016 has just not been very good to me, personally and in all levels.

Ciao for now…

Mini Dress For The 60’s Themed Halloween

Few winks and it’s going to be Halloween! It’s going to be all about funny, funky, colourful, unique, and flashy costumes out there, in parties, corporate events, family gatherings, and many more. But what if your Halloween party is a 60’s themed event? That won’t be too hard, right?

The 1960’s is the year of shift dresses, pillbox hats, and  fancy suits. It’s not really hard to dress up for a 1960’s theme because you don’t have to scour the whole “for rent clothing store” for old clothes nor ransack your mum’s or grandmum’s stashed closet. A mini dress, a clunky heels or high boots can do the trick.

You can check the web for more ideas for what to wear for the 1960’s theme or check this link for some inspiration.

My Christmas Wishlist for 2016

I always have a secret wishlist every Christmas, year after year. I never really tell anyone about them until now. I felt, I had to let them out and send them to the universe! Maybe Santa Claus or a generous sponsor will anonymously present me with any of the items I need (or maybe all! hahahaha!).

  • iPad Pro
  • Apple pen
  • iMac
  • Calligraphy pen set
  • Tombow Dual Brush Pens


I need all of them actually for my “biz plan.” I have been diligently practising on my craft, learning online, reading books, and practising some more. I need to hone my skills in hand lettering, sketching, doodling, and watercolour art.

I want to be able to put up an e-commerce business by 2018-2019, before I retire from the corporate world. I want to be my own boss. I want to open up jobs for others and I want to work from home. And as early as now, I am paving my way to get there. It’s not easy but every victory is shrouded with thorns, right?


And this will be my home office! 🙂 (Photo credit:

So yes, I need them. They are not “want” but “need.” Good luck to me!
