Thank you Lord for the skill

When I was little, I used to watched my late mother sewing dresses for me, my sister and brothers.  Sewing is one of my mother’s skills I must say.  Because I always look at my mother, I grew up drawing dresses on paper and cut it after.  I remember when my friend and I are playing paper doll, I am make my own doll and dresses for my doll because I do not have money to buy paper doll and dresses.  I envy them because their mother gives them money.  But I am thankful then because I develop my skill in making dresses.  I grew up dreaming to be a fashion designer someday.

My dream to become a fashion designer remains a dream because taking the course is very costly.  And my father can’t afford it.  Though I did not able to study the course that I wanted, I am still happy because I got the chance to sew dresses for my nephew and nieces costumes for book parade.  It was a dream come true to sew and make a dress.  Though I do not have any experience in sewing dresses at all, the experienced of watching my mother before is my only inspiration.  I really thought the costumes I made for the nephew and nieces are the first and the last one, but then I was wrong because just recently, I sewed another costumes for the nephew and his classmates for their school presentation.  I am really happy because I will be able to practice more.  The image above are the costumes that I sewed.  I thank God for the skills and my late mother for being my inspiration.  I hope that I will be able to pursue my dreams in making dresses or even be a dressmaker in the future.

It took me some time to find the nice razor

Every time my father needs to buy something, I am the one who buy it for him like t-shirt, pants, shorts, undergarments, soap, and the likes. I must say I know what my father sizes, likes, and he wants. I am like his personal secretary. One incident that I cannot forget was when I bought razor for him. It took me some time to find a good one and he doesn’t like it. Said, that the one I bought is not a good quality. If I have known the edwin jagger razors back then, I would have buy a good quality of razor. Well, it was my first time so it is fine. But the next time I will buy razor for my father, I know now what to buy. The kind that my father would surely like.

Feeling like a choreographer

Two weeks from now, the nephew will be having their recognition day. The teacher held a meeting to all the parents to let the parents know of the plans for the coming recognition day. I was the one attending the meeting because my sister working. We were told that the kids will have dance presentation. One parent, volunteered to be the choreographer.   However, when she told the teacher of the kind of dance the teacher did not like it. Because I wanted to help, I suggest a good song. The teacher likes it and told me if I could teach the kids as well. I was not able to respond right away because I am shocked!

Anyways, because the teacher asked me to teach the kids I made steps for the song I suggested. Now, I am their choreographer, well feeling like a real choreographer. This is not new to me though because I have teacher before, but this is the first time I’ll be teaching kids with ages 4, 5 and 6. It is really difficult because they are not listening, others do not like to dance, some are crying, having tantrum and some are playing. It really testing my patience, I am glad I have enough patience. I really hope, that they will participate so their dance number will be a good one.

The King and Queen of Hearts 2015

Last February 13, 2015 is the King and Queen of Hearts coronation day at the school where my nephew is enrolled. We are happy and excited because my nephew JC is the King of Hearts. Their teacher made a raffle. She lets the kids pick of what would be their place on the said event. And the nephew picked the King of Hearts title. Lucky kid I must say. My only worry is that the nephew is a shy type kid. I am not sure if he will participate well, or wear the attire of the king. They have dance presentation, and I am afraid the nephew will not participate.

The King and Queen of Hearts 2015 was a success. The nephew did well. Even if he is complaining that his Barong (top) is very itchy. Lol He is not that shy anymore but he is not smiling. I am sure that he is happy just that he doesn’t smile a lot. If you want him to smile, you have to pay billion pesos. Haha! He also dances with his partner, the Queen of Hearts. Being the King of Hearts is a wonderful experienced of the nephew, an experience that he would treasure and cherish as he grows older. Something that he could share to his family someday that once in his life he is a king.
