Formula 1 Grand Prix - Philippines

I am so curious about what F1 or Formula 1 racing is all about. My daughter Mickyla and her father are both fan of it. Mickyla, knows the names of the top racers on F1 and she even know what team the player belongs. Her top three favorite drivers are Fernando Alonso of Ferrari, Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull Racing and Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes. Mickyla also knows the F1 Legend Michael Schumacher even he is not on the top of the grid now. On the latest race in Grand Prix in Melbourne, Australia, they watched it together from practice, to qualifying and up to the race day. That was one of their bonding activity.

 Mickyla - Playing F1 Racing on PC

Mickyla and her father also plays F1 racing on pc together. They race with each other and they were so happy doing it. I am left behind and cannot relate on their activity. I want to know more about Formula 1 racing so I can join them and become an F1 racing fan too.

Orphan Musicians

We visited a orphanage last weekend, it was one of our church outreach activity. It was a well-prepared visit; pastor bought some foods and kitchen utensils for that foundation. The foundation’s chairperson let his kids prepare a welcome number for us. They have a music team composed of kids and young adults. Some play the guitar, violin, flute, clarinet and cello. A group of kids got my attention, the clarinet players, they only place their clarinet on a plastic bag. I was concern because they love their instrument but they can’t afford to buy a good case for it.

 Now, I will inform my other friends in our church about my plan. I plan to buy clarinet cases for their clarinet so it will last longer and will help retain its good shape. 

News Watch

As I was watching the news right now, I felt so bad because only few was a good news, the rest of it was a bad news or if not bad, it’s not interesting at all. There was this politician that as early as now he is cooking his plans for his presidency on 2016 election, he plans to have a new political party. Would you elect a presidential candidate that prints his face on some relief goods that was distributed in the last calamity at Tacloban? It’s your decision. I just hope that the next time I’ll be watching the news, there will be more good news than bad.
