Our eyes beamed upon seeing epiphone acoustic guitars which our daughter wants as her graduation gift. Wow! It’s handcrafted to perfection! Our daughter loved to play the guitar and she would spend hours practicing. There’s just no stopping her as soon as she holds the guitar, it’s as if she’ll be transported to another time and place…LOL! I admire here resilience and determination to really master guitar playing.
We already have brought her a black acoustic guitar and she really beamed with pride and joy seeing her personal guitar in her room. Every time we arrive home, she then proceeds to play her guitar and sing songs to our delight. Go, go, go dearest daughter of ours. Who might know if someday she’ll end up a recording artist?

Heard of Singapore Cove Water Adventure? I have been to Singapore three years ago but I did not realized they have this kind of attraction with is perfect for the whole family. I browsed for videos awhile ago and I can not help but get excited for my kids. They simple love waters! Every time we are on vacation, we see to it that we book a hotel with swimming pool. They prefer to celebrate their birthdays by the pool too! Now, with our Singapore getaway, I make sure to include a visit to Cove Water Adventure Park to make our 9-day vacation complete. I know there’s nothing to worry even if they will spend half day to this attraction. With their pentair pool pumps , I am assured that the water is clean and safe.
I was tasked to prepare the Mindanao University of Science and Technology Fun run last February 2013 but due to some circumstances, the fun run was moved to September .
Here’s the detail of the Fun Run :
General Mechanics :
Thirty (30) minutes before the first event the organizers shall ask all the participants to convene at the starting line for the announcement of rules and for warm up exercises.
The 10K race starts promptly at 5:00 am, followed by the 5K Team event and the fun run after every 5 minutes thereafter.
On the cue of a start shot, the starting line rope shall be released to indicate the start of the fun run. Cyclist Marshals and a pace car shall guide the participants along the route of the fun run.
Water re-filling stations will be available on the indicated portions of the route.
Paramedics will be on stand-by at designated portions of the route.
A sweeper (car or van or truck) shall pick-up the runners who cannot run anymore for health reasons. Marshals patrolling the route are in charge to assess the participants’ conditions. People who can no longer run will be transported back to the nearest medical station or to the fun run HQ.
MECHANICS FOR MEN AND WOMEN 10K OPEN RACE :
Only participants 18 years old and above may join, provided registration fee is paid.
Top finishers who will cross the finish line will be determined through the time record they achieve as recorded by the Chief Race Marshals.

The finishing place of each runner will correspond to the number of points he/she will give the team. 1st placer will receive 1 point, 2nd placer will receive 2 points, 3rd placer will receive 3 points and so on.
Only the scores of the first five runners of the team will be counted in the overall tally.
