A cat found !

This beach away from Chukai town just about 10 minute driving distance, the environment is clean and away from the of the city noises. It is a good relaxing place.

During day time, this place is not crowded, which is the best place you can find for a quiet time.

Families, groups, couples will coming in during evening time, for picnic and outdoors activities.

Things to consider: please be extra cautious when you visit the place alone, to prevent being targeted by drug addicts or burglar. It’s best come to this place accompanied.

Going to Faber Heights from Wangsa Maju

Wangsa Maju
> Pasarseni
> Rapid Bus U70 > Faber Heights, Jalan Desa Utama

It all started from take a LRT ride from Wangsa Maju LRT to LRT Kelana Jaya. After that take Rapid Bus U70.

There is another two buses as alternative, they were U504 and U72. But take note that these two buses only take you to Tokong Cina, Jalan Klang Lama. And then you’ll have to take a walk to Faber Heights. Well, if you intend to get some exercise, this is the way I guess. 😀

Using Hand Grip to Train Palm Endurance (Guitar Chord Handling)

palm strength training to hold guitar chordsRecently I have been trying to use the hand grip to train my palm to strengthen my hand. I find it works! I can actually hold the chords better and able to hold bar chord for longer period of time.

Bear in mind there is technique to train your gripping endurance. It is not just training hard using the hand grip alone, you must train together with guitar play too.

Training using hand grip alone may turn out making your hand less flexible, it just make your grip stronger; which is not enough.

How to -?
The proper way to do is, after playing guitar till your hand quite tired, and then continue with hand grip training. Or vice versa.

In conclusion, this way is actually training your palm’s muscles get used to the pattern of chord and have more strength to perform or sustain it, instead of just making your palm stronger alone.

Replace Guitar Strings Periodically

The performance of the guitar strings will decreased over the time and frequency of usage. The outcome is the sound become fuzzy and not clear. It will no longer sounds as bright as first time when it is still new.

The strings should be replaced periodically, or when you found the degradation of the sound. Of course, the better quality usually can holds longer period, in expense of the cost. That is why there are quite number of grades of guitar strings, which you can tell by their price.

You should replace your guitar strings, or else no matter how hard you strummed it or plucked it, you can’t hear a good sound. Instead, you’ll just hear some unpleasant hitting beats. It happens to me when I attempted some recordings on the guitar strumming, and the result was, it sounds like noises and no clarity of the guitar strings vibrations.

Budgets for Guitar strings…

Expensive one
Well, I’ll say it’s all depends on your needs. If you think you are regularly playing guitar on performance or recording, you should just go for the expensive one.

Not so expensive
If you are tight to the budget, then just go for the medium range.

Cheap one
As for the low range, or cheap one. Mainly just for beginnner or newbie to guitar, as the string will not last long for a long term performance. Also, poor quality string encourage the guitar newbie to practice replace guitar string on their own more frequently,  good idea? 😛

Sign up for Contributor Lounge

I just sign up to contributor lounge, thinking of starting some way to earn side income using   talents. Besides, I hope that music created will become blessings to those who in need.

Music can heal, encourage a person. Therefore I find it is some power to those who has ability to compose and perform musics or songs. Giving people more positive power to make a person’s life better.

It is great that to hear some of the music contributor’s masterpiece from Their works brings courage and lifted up the spirit indeed. They are really wonderful and awesome, as my days had been brightened.

Next, I find that it is not easy to create a proper music as there’s some tight guideline, especially in some technical way. In fact, I manage to redo some parts of the music, fixing the mistakes before submitting to the contributor application.

When thing get done, I should more focus on music playing and practices in order to get more inspiration to create new music. It needs a lot of efforts and time, but I think I will enjoy throughout the process.

If it’s hard to let go a thing, then how about to pick up something new? Or vice versa..

I am not sure about this, but I could pick up any new skills pretty fast. When talk about pick up, the word “let go” comes into my mind. Because in mandarin, pick up is 拿起,let go is 放下. Despite of literal translations, in some cases this two words is antonyms to each others.

Why am I writting this topics?
In real life situation, it was…

easy to pick up anything, but hard to let go things.

I wonder, is this possible? if it is easy to pick up something, it should be easy to let go as well? Is it a logic do you think? This should be the balance point, i guess…

It may not be possible, there must be some tricks in between…
it was…

easy to pick up anything, but never master it and hard to let go things.

This are the only answer I have. And the explanation for it is,  if you never let go old things, as well as your past, be it glorious past or failure… you will never advanced in your life, although you attempted to pick up something to change your life.

Therefore, in order to move forward in life, you must really left the past behind.

It’s confusing I know, but you know life is always isn’t that easy. 😛

Looking into the Sky of Dawn

I was looking  at the sky and have some thoughts. And the color of the sky is the main agent that always directed my mind, as well as become the direction of topic what am I thinking.

It could be feelings, somehow it can be some motivation and inspiration that encourage myself to move on during my hardship in my life, as life often full of challenges; be it small one or big ones.

Little move could change things in life. However, little stumble in life could affect the direction of life too. Therefore, it is necessary to pause and calm down, to make yourself to think through again, as to get back to right directions in life.
