To take advantage of something means to use an opportunity to achieve results, sometimes in an unfair way.
For example, the Spanish academic year is nearly over so my advice to all teachers is to take advantage of your pupil-free days, stop taking prescription drugs to get you through the day, and start recharging your batteries with some serious dance moves and Jason Derulo.
Inglés Málaga community, it´s practically summer and it´s time to practise your moves and shakes.
Come on: Get Jiggy With It!
So, the summer vibe is palpable in the streets of Málaga and I´m already creating my beach soundtrack. My bikini is dust-free, my flip flops are ready to take a stroll and my suntan lotion is in my beach bag.
In fact, if I were in your shoes, I would check out this amazing new band. For me, FKJ are going to be the chill-out group of summer 2017. Recharge your batteries by listening to FKJ
If you want to dance and have fun, then we have what you’re looking for!
On Saturday, 18 February 2017, at 23:30 hours, come and get your groove on with Free Soul Band.
Buy your ticket at the restaurant or by calling 951333131, hurry up to going out!
It is widely accepted that music plays a huge role in improving concentration and enhancing athletic performance. In fact, I have different play lists depending on the physical activity I’m doing. So, when you are running, jogging, cycling or doing a general workout what tunes keep you going?
My younger sister has always been a music lover and she has gone to gigs ( music concerts) since she worked out how to sneak out of the house without our mother knowing, i.e. when she was about 14. So, my sister has set me a musical challenge whereby I have to see 12 new bands of different genres. I’m also a music lover but know a lot less about music than she does so I’ve got ants in my pants to start this challenge and get more into the music scene of Málaga, which, truth be told, gets better every year. Bring it on sister, I’m totally up for this challenge!
September is a sniff away and I’m feeling all loved up!
It’s true, this summer has been about falling in love, dancing in flip flops to ‘Greece Lightning’ at Feria ( yep, it was messy!) drinking cocktails at the beach, getting my ass kicked at beach tennis, playing crazy golf, catching up with old friends, making new ones and hanging out at Recyclo my favourite café in Málaga. I’ve had a blast, and as a result of painting the town red on too many occasions I’m going on the wagon for the month of September.
OMG, I’m already thinking how I can put some vodka in a celery juice so that my sister doesn’t find out. She is the only person who can look at my face and know instantly that I’m telling a fib.
Anyway, I’m saying goodbye to August and saying: Bring it on September, I’m ready for anything!
Want to get in the mood for a fantastic September? Of course you do!! So, come on, get your dancing shoes on, start shaking those hips and moving your arms; it’s time for: Grease Lightning.
Finally, a note to the guy I smacked in the face when I did the Grease Lightning moves in Plaza de la Flores: ‘’Please accept my apologies, it wasn’t my intention for your face to make contact with my fist’.
So, tomorrow is a National Holiday; it’s about half way through Málaga’s alcohol obsessed 10 day city party and I’m on holiday! I’ve ants in my pants to try out my flamenco moves and shakes, I’m going to jiggle my ass off to one of my favourite performing bands from Malaga, Free Soul Band, and I’m going to avoid cartojal like the plague. If you bump into me on the street, I’d recommend running away!
So, if you want to see Free Soul Band they are playing every day during Fería 2015 from 4 to 6pm in the plaza of flowers. They are soooooooooooooooooooo good; be there or be square!
What are you talking about: you’d rather watch paint dry than listen to Pharrel Williams!
Seriously, I’ve got a difficult crowd to please. So, how about moving from one ‘happy clappy’ sound to another ‘clappy’ tune? Moreover, I have chosen a tune from one of our own home-grown talents and it’s my way of saying to Málaga: ‘’Viva Malaga, Viva La Fería– go and paint the town red!’
Finally, last week a gorgeous client taught me how to dance Sevillanas: Pick the apple, eat the apple, and throw away the apple. So yes, I’m completely prepared and you will be if you want to dance like Pablo Alborán.
So, you’re sick to the back teeth of my chilled-out tunes. Seriously, without a shadow of a doubt I have to say that the general response has been very, very negative!
Ok, Janette’s August jukebox is taking a new direction; I’m going ‘commercial’. So, let’s start with some mainstream pop music and bring out Pharrell Williams and his catchy tune: Happy. Now, if you aren’t clapping along to this tune, you really do need to take some happy pills!
