Music: Flute

The flute is just of the few instruments that I know how to play. We were required to learn this back in primary school. I can still remember that I had a hard time playing this because I don’t have enough air or I was probably breathing the wrong way. 😆

Since I was just playing the flute for academic purposes, I only had a cheap one. It’s a pink plastic flute that looks exactly has the image shown below.

But if you are really into learning the flute and into making music using this, you may opt to purchase a good one like a yamaha flute. And to get you started in learning this, you can search YouTube for different Flute Tutorials.

Meet Cooper

I wasn’t really fond of dogs before. I hated being near one when I was kid. I always felt like they were going to bite me. But everything changed in 2015 when Papa decided to get a golden retriever. We named him Boo, but sadly, we only had him for a few months. He died because apparently, he was already sick when we had him. We really felt sad when we lost him, so papa decided to have another puppy. This time, we made sure that he’ll be well taken care of. I would like you all to meet my fluffy friend, Cooper. If you’re a follower of my social media accounts, you have probably seen him… A LOT. He even has his own album on my Facebook! Cooper is a 16-month old Golden Retriever. We had him when he was just 4-months.

From a tiny pup to a big fluffy doggo, take a look how much he has grown. He may look this big, but for us, he’s still a baby

The most memorable moment we have of him is that whenever we come home from work, he is always so excited too see us. There was an instance that I was still parking my car and he will just be at the window, staring. You can also hear his loud bark. 🙂 Cooper and I have been close now, I have been his favorite human since he’s been sleeping in my room. HAHA. I love seeing him sleep and all curled up.

All of this happy moments were captured by my mobile phone, OPPO F1s. OPPO made it possible for me to capture all these lovely moments with Cooper! Because of its 13MP Rear Camera and 16MP Front Camera, we surely had the best photos. 🙂

Here’s a video of him playing:

He loves taking selfies too, he’s a natural. Here are some of his photos:
