It’s Too Noisy!

From the time I started this blog, I have been complaining about how NOISY the Chinese are.

Isn’t it ironic that I actually LOVE karaoke and I play some really LOUD music when I’m cooking or doing housework?

Recently, I found a huge collection of music with my favourite artistes like Avril Lavigne, Blink 182, Linkin Park, Smashing Pumpkins and etc and had a good time even if I was stuck in a stupid traffic jam.

The funniest thing is that the kids complained: “It’s too noisy!”

After ALL the years of listening to Barney and nursery rhymes, it’s nice to get back our music 🙂

The kids do like some of our selection of music and and I hope that they’ll also learn to play them. They’re only on the piano now but I know somebody’s *really* into the guitar and drums. If your kid’s into music too, be sure to browse here.

Many people are relying on reading glasses and contact lenses with the belief that poor vision is inevitable with the passing of time.
