8 May 2008
I took leave from work today to send my double bass to the Luthier for repair. The real reason is that I needed a break from work to recharge. Anyway, the sound-post needs some fixing to get it to an optimal position. I hope the repair would help improve the sound of my double bass. Somehow, my ears tell me that although it is just a very average double bass for students, it has not been reaching its potential because of its set-up.
The Luthier is someone who is trustworthy and reliable so I look forward to hear some improvements in the sound quality of my instrument. Meantime, I have to get used to many days without a double bass to practise on at home.
Rather than walking about to sight-seeing though I very much wish to do so, I headed home after borrowing a few books from the library. Food for the mind is as good a treat as beautiful sceneries. I shall allow my body to rest so that it can feel better soon.
In the evening, my family had dinner together. It has been a while since we had dinner together.
Meantime, many thanks to the greetings and wishes from various friends: xiaofen, ML, SH, JL, JQ, Ins., XS.
One of my friends, Trinket Addict, brightened my day with a Sunshine Bag Charm. I like the colour combinations of the charm and the effects of sunshine shining through the charm.
