Basketball Try-Out

Last Friday, Poopy pestered me to get a letter from the school for varsity try-out in basketball. We drove to that school after I arrived home but unfortunately school hours has ended. I texted the Principal and was instructed to report to the place the next morning at 6:30 AM. We arrived quite early, kiddos were really excited!

Francis (yellow jersey) was not feeling well that day but he still came out to try. He was really struggling, I saw how he suffered while running, but he doesn't want to stop. I am proud of you Son!

Poopy (red jersey) did great! He can ran fast and steady. He has the will power! Luckily, he was accepted! Yes, he was chosen to be one of the varsity player for  Grade Schooler. But at the first game, his coach talked to him with loud voice, he came running to me.  We went inside the car and he burst into tears! He said the coach yelled and scolded him! I had to talk to him for sometime before he was convinced to come back to the game. 

Congratulations to both of you! We are proud of you! Love you both Kuya!

3 Tips for Buying Pumps

If you're in the market for pumps, it can be difficult to know where to turn. There are so many sizes and varieties available that it can definitely get overwhelming! You also need to worry about finding the best deal and not getting ripped off by imitations or disreputable companies. It's a lot to consider.

The good news is that you don't have to go shopping in the dark. With these three tips, buying the right pump is just a click away!

1. Know Your Needs

First things first: Figure out what you need for your project or business. The key is to narrow down your search and only look for the right kind of equipment so you won't waste time and energy down a rabbit hole that leads nowhere. For example, do you need a piston pump or a plunger pump? Do you prefer adjustable parts or fixed ones?

2. Give Yourself a Budget

Before going shopping for pumps and pump parts, sit down with your finances and figure out the nitty-gritty of your money. Give yourself two numbers: The first should be the figure you hope not to exceed, and the second should be the number you absolutely can't exceed. Most people will fall between the two while buying, and that's all right. Just don't go over that second number.

3. Consider the Company

Do they have a good reputation among their peers? Do they sell strong, industry-recognized names like GASO Pumps, or are their items obscure and off-brand? What do previous customers have to say about them? Track down their reviews. Look for red flags and consistent complaints that seem to have grains of truth in them. If they set off alarms too strong for you to consider buying from the company, that's that.

These are just a few things to keep in mind as you shop for pumps. Whether you're retrofitting a high school or just re-doing the plumbing in your bathroom, it's important to only buy the best. Cutting corners now can cause you a lot of misery in the future!

Decorating with Wall Decals

Our living spaces can easily influence us so if all you see around you are the same old plain wall or a dull living room, it may also affect your feelings or your motivation. Adding a bit of decoration or some colors can reflect positively on our thoughts, productivity and mood. One of the easiest ways to upgrade a plain wall is to add artsy wall decals. You can find wall decals that are suited to children’s bedrooms, living rooms, workplaces and others. They are very thin vinyl that looks like they have been painted on walls! They are easy to apply and you can even change them as often as you want!

Here is the recent wall decals displayed at Stickerworld Inc.

Inspiring Children to Pursue Excellence in Order to Succeed

Parents want their children to succeed in their endeavors. The goal of their children become their goal and almost all parents will provide all the support they can give to ensure that their children will reach their goals. However, as parents we should also set limitations and allow our children to work on their own passions and give their best shot. We should also allow them to experience hardships and difficulties so that they can learn to focus, plan and hustle to achieve the goals they set for themselves. It is easy for parents to simply throw in opportunities for their children, but it should also stand back allow our children to decide whether they will take it or choose another path where they can excel and succeed.
