Hi, 14 ♡

AKO: Parang nakakatuwa mag-number game. Mehehe.

Di naman ako nagpasend ah? Sabi ko lang parang nakakatuwa. Pero aba i-number game ko daw siya. Okay. Isa ka lang naman na gagawan ko. Hehe. So, ano pa bang sasabihin ko sayo? Hehe. Hindi ko man banggitin ang pangalan mo, alam kong alam na ng ibang tao dito kung sino ka. Haha. Ayun, gusto ko lang sabihing may nakakamiss na agad sayo, syempre ako! :“> Gusto kitang makita pa uli bago ka umalis, wag mo ko iwan pleaseee. Haha. Ayoko nang pahabain pa ‘tong message na 'to kasi alam mo naman na yung sasabihin ko. Baka masawa ka na. Basta mahal kita sobra tsaka rule #1, wag kalilimutan yan. God bless! :)

Day 41. Write a letter to a stranger.

Dear Stranger,

I don’t have idea about this and I don’t know you so yeah, I don’t know what to say. I’m not sure what to tell you. I’m not good at introducing myself. I’m a small girl. I’m just simple. I’m not that pretty. I’m not that intelligent. But I’m a good friend. I talk to anyone. You can talk to me if you want. You can approach me anytime. I’m a happy person, I laugh, I always have this smile on my face, but I easily cry. I’m sure you’ll never meet someone like me. Lol. :)

Always,
Nemielle

Day 42. Write a letter to your ex-boyfriend/girlfriend/love/crush.

Pwede bang ex-crush?

Hoy,

Hindi ko talaga maintindihan kung bakit umabot sa ganito. Kung bakit hindi na tayo nagpapansinan. Hindi talaga malinaw sakin ang lahat, ayoko kasing maniwala sa sinasabi lang ng mga kaibigan mo/ng classmates natin. Ayoko magmukhang ewan. Sa tuwing tinatanong nila ako kung tayo daw ba, sabi ko hindi. Kung nanliligaw ka daw ba, sinasabi ko hindi. Kasi yun ang alam ko, ayokong mag-assume. Lumipas na lang ang panahon ng kay bilis. Wala na yung mga asaran. Masaya ko na nakakausap na uli kita. I wish you all the best. Sana magtagal kayo ng girlfriend mo. Nakakainis lang na hindi mo sinabi sakin, sa iba ko pa nalaman.

Always,
Nem

Bruno Mars went guitar shopping with New Orleans rockers after sold-out concert

For over 20 years, Steve Staples has been the proprietor of International Vintage Guitars, a vendor of prime instruments that can be found these days tucked into a picturesque carriage house on Algiers Point. In the 1960s, Staples played with New Orleans teenage psych garage-rockers the Gaunga Dyns, who reunited for the 2013 Ponderosa Stomp, and now play most Thursdays at the Old Point Bar. Just before that first reunion show, Staples told me his place was designed to be similar in spirit to the music stores of his youth: a musicians’ hang, where young guns could rub shoulders with established stars, trade licks, and talk shop. “We’d be hanging out talking about the latest pedal that came out, or the new amps” at the music store, Staples told me then. “That’s what we’d be doing on Saturday morning.” International Vintage Guitars has long been a favorite of both local players and visiting acts. Richie Havens once came by and wound up giving Staples a three-hour guitar lesson. Billy Gibbons, of ZZ Top, checks in when he’s in town and sometimes calls from the road, when he’s not.

The most recent celebrity to visit was Bruno Mars, who apparently hung around New Orleans for a couple of days after his sold-out gig at the Smoothie King Center on Saturday night (June 7.) Ashley Hewitt, the rhythm guitarist who shares the band, the store and her life with Staples, posted a photo of Mars at the shop on her Facebook page Monday afternoon. The soul singer had stopped in and left with a trio of three very nice vintage guitars: a 1966 Silvertone 1454 Archtop electric, a 1955 Fender Esquire Blonde, and a 1982 Fender custom shop Telecaster thinline in Dakota red, the 97th guitar made in the custom shop. All three guitars, Hewitt said, are rare and highly sought by collectors. Judging by Mars’ playing in the shop Monday, she said, he deserves them. Bruno Mars’ “Moonshine Jungle” tour continues, hitting Birmingham, Columbia, S.C.; Raleigh, N.C.; and Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Ohio and New York state this month, and continuing on into the fall. Watch for the new gear.
