Lunar New Year - Day 1

Blessings of the Day: Perfect Weather! We had Carl's Junior for dinner.. yup that count as a blessings too! =)

Keegan and I head to Sentosa Flowers 2007. This year flowers exhibition was kind of disappointing despite they had increased the exhibition area. Compared to 2006, there were less flowers and plants. Last year, every corner we turn, we are surrounded by flowers and more flowers. It was definitely more colourful as compared to 2007. Nevertheless, we spent about 1 hour there to take pictures and enjoy the good lunar new year break.

I taught Keegan the camera macro mode (the flower one) and he became increasingly interested in taking flowers and most of the photos have more flowers than me and him *faint* but it was a good time but time to time we did grumble *why so little flowers*

While uploading the photos, I decided to compare the photos we took last year and this year Sentosa Flowers. I found some similarities and it was for sure it was not on purpose. Hahaha

Valentine Day

I am reminded that my first love is God

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3: 16)

So i shall celebrate God's love for me today.

Thank you Father!


We had picnic at Pasir Ris Beach... i really enjoy this year .. simple one.. no need to queue up with people in the crowded place.. i like my triple decker sandwich - tuna, egg mayo with bacon plus NTUC roasted Chicken.. so simple and the best part is that you just sit by the beach and enjoy a quiet time... I should head to the beach more often =)

Basic things of life

Blessings of the Day: Went for prayer meeting.. though literally dragging my feet to go there but i am glad i went. Because it was a good time to talk to God through prayers.
I am desperately in need of a break. i can't stand it *screams*

Work is piling up yet at same time raise uncertainity. I got to focus! PY Focus!!!

Oh Father, please help me - Py is going bonkers very soon. School starts Tuesday and I haven got the time to sit down and read through.

Why is Chinese New Year coming so early?!


While i was flipping through the magazines hoping to get an inspiration of what hairstyles to cut and worrying that will I overspent this month again because of CNY ( the tendency to shop new clothes and shoes during festive season is high) and I chanced upon an article that makes me sit up...

"Goodbye Evelyn" ~ An article written in "Simply Her" Magazine about a entreprenur of an extraordinary woman who set up her own business of selling hand-made vintage bags - she was featured a couple of months ago, and suddenly last month she died suddenly in her sleep and the family notify the magazines editors.

These words struck me deeply. Her sister said this, "My mom tried waking her at 10.30am but she was unconscious, her arms and fingers had already turned blue. She was declared dead by the paramedics at 11.30am. It was a terrible shock to us as Evelyn never displayed any heart conditions and she has been careful with her diet and she loved to go to East Coast Park for long walks"

Suddenly, this talented woman just left her dear ones behind. Have it ever struck you, that someone who you are very dear to left you behind suddenly without saying goodbye? Or have it occured to you that you are the one who left behind suddenly?

This issue really woke me up. It was *slap PY* alarm that trigger in me. Why am i so emotional about something like this and I don't even know who is this Evelyn. Perhaps i could identify with her that she setups her own business and she also work hard for every bags she creates for her clients. But the most important thing that struck me - Maintaining loving relationships and enjoying the basic things of life are more important than wealth and success…

I happen to also read Proverbs 15:13-33 yesterday. Then with what I read on the article makes the words in the bible even more impactful than before.

I need to learn how to enjoy the basic things of life. I never know when I am going to leave my dear ones behind. The thought of my parents growing old and leaving me one day - I do not want to be feel any hint of regret that I have not spent enough time with them. Neither should I be worrying things like work and handling clients. I felt guilty that my family and even Kg saying I have quite been absorbed in my work and I didn't really care for them.

Evelyn's death had woke me up and telling me I should really spent time with my family, for kg, my friends and for myself.

Laughter—"A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken" (Prov. 15:13). True happiness begins deep inside and emerges on our faces.

The Lord—"The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom, and before honor is humility" (v.33). When God is central in our hearts, He can teach us His way through every experience of life.

The Little Things—"Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a fatted calf with hatred" (v.17). Maintaining loving relationships and enjoying the basic things of life are more important than wealth and success.

Not all of us will live a long time, but we can all live well each day—with laughter, the Lord, and the little things in life. The world is filled with so much good—Little things that bring us pleasure—But Christ can fill our lives with joyBeyond all earthly treasure. Happiness is not a destination but a day-by-day journey.
P/S: Actually i wanted to grumble... but after when i finish it turned out to be such a solemn entry. But i do feel happier after writing this entry. Hmm... learning to appreciate the basic things will surely help you to be more positive in life. Praise God.
