I remember being asked by an interviewer before “Do you sing?” and I was like wondering how such question can help me to get the job that I was applying for. It all made sense when a friend told me that singing can help improve someone’s diction and it will somehow enhance your vocabulary (English songs in particular). I actually answered the interviewer that I really can’t sing but I think if i will be given another chance to answer that question I would rather rephrase it and tell him confidently that “Yeah I can sing…. but i can’t sing well” LOL.
I love to sing, honestly but I think i do not have enough skills to sing properly or even hit those high notes. I never sing in front of anyone other than my cousin and siblings. Well according to them, my voice is pretty okay and that is something I am really having doubt with haha. I used to record my own voice and try to listen to it many times to see how worst it is .
Honestly, I do not have the best voice but I do not have the worst either. I can sing the the song nicely, i can do some runs but I can’t reach high notes or do those impressive falceto just like what I used to see in most Youtube performers. And, above all, I am not so ambitious to think that I am one of them LOL.
My cousin and his band used to record their performance in an amateur recording studio and I also went there last year to witness their performance. It was pretty cool but the studio is not really appealing. They do not even have those mechanisms or equipments to edit those faulty audio or even like those Noise Cancelling Headphones at guitar center for better and more satisfying performance. Anyway, I am not their vocalist but I think they’re still looking for someone to join their band. They will be performing soon in a Cosplay Event and I guess I have to buzz more about it soon.
Here’s the last part of the Mecoy and I MOA trip. So just like what i have mentioned from my previous post, Mecoy and I went to Starbucks after our delightful meal at Mang Inasal. I rarely visit this place and for a frugal guy like me, I actually prefer eating my neighbor’s Halo Halo rather than spending my money for a cu of Frapucino hahaha. Anyway, Here’s some shots of what we ordered.
I took the choco flavor while Melvin took the Caramel but in the end, we switched both cups because he realized that Choco is much better than Caramel and I feel the same way for choco LOL.
It was a tiring yet satisfying trip for both of us
My cousin and I had a small debate yesterday. I told him that whenever I can’t sing whenever someone is singing with me or if there’s a loud instrument playing along with me. Then he suddenly juped into conclusion that I am probably tone deaf. Tone deafness is generally an inability to distinguish between musical notes. He walk me through a site to test how tone deaf I was and well… uhmm. he’s right because I only got 24% out of 100 and it was so depressing in my part. You see, i have been attending the music session with him and yet, i’m still lacking of skills to distinguish different keys properly. They said that tone deafness is most likely due to lack or musical training or education which somehow make sense to me I shoud probably take some serious musical course somewhere and learn all the important things. I’m sure I will eventually exert my skills and play any of those cool washburn guitars while singing my favorite piece. It would be cool. Well, at the end of the day, my cousin won the debate and I accepted the fact that I am indeed a tone deaf (as of this moment)
And finally, i can post this entry..Its been a crucial week for me and I can barely visit other blogs recently. On top of that, I am having some serious issues with my Internet Connection. It was really devastating to receive such a very low speed and that’s not really what i am paying for. I called their hotline and i guess i’m going to post a separate entry for this one. Anyway, looking for a brighter side, here’s an entry to continue my post about the trip that Mecoy and I had. We went to SM Mall of Asia and after more than an hour of walking, visiting one shop after another we decided to take our lunch at Mang Inasal. We had once satisfying meal. I ordered the pitso (chicken breast). We also added a piece of sweet leche plan for dessert.
After this, we went to Starbucks and grab some Frap before leaving!
