New Niche - Food And My Embarrassing Thoughts

From today onwards, I will be adding a new theme to this blog... besides giving glory and praises to my Lord God, I will post up the food abundance He has given to me... to us..  Without His provisions, there will not be so much enjoyment in savouring all that is laid on our tables...

As you all know, I love to eat... healthy, unhealthy, I eat but I do not eat in big quantities.... I like to try varieties and love traveling to try out new food that I have not tasted before..

Let me tell you one of my "weaknesses" and this might be very embarrassing to reveal too.. hahaha...

At times when I go to sleep, I think of food.. and my mouth sort of "twitches" and "yum-ming" like I am really tasting the desired food!!  Gosh.. have you all experienced that before???

Best Treatment Of All

Each morning when we switch on the television or read the newspapers, we see disasters, natural phenomenal happenings, murders, suicides, accidents happening everywhere, so much so, that all these are part of our daily lives.  Some of us are more or less immune to what is happening in this world, while many others are thankful that they are not involved in these mishaps, on the other hand, there are plenty of people who are feeling devastated over all these tragedies.  Those who are deeply affected, victims who lost their families, they turn to drugs to overcome their emotions.  Friends and love ones give encouragement to them and some agree to seek Holistic Addiction Treatment to ease themselves from deeper drugs involvement.  While others seek this treatment, they are other recovery programs such as Residential Addiction Treatment which cater for individuals who have specific spiritual needs and that includes Christian Addiction Treatment .  Everyone of us need God, only He can comfort and give us peace and love.  While earthly and material things will fade, God's love for His children, such as us, will never be lost.  All we need is to turn to Him... His treatment is the best of all...

Eternal Love

My friend is a florist.. for the past few years, she presented bouquet of flowers for my birthday.  This year I love the sweet roses she made... though there were only three stalks, the sweet thoughts were there in this mini bouquet.  
They are fresh flowers and they lasted for nearly a week or so.  It is such a waste to see them fade away, if only there were everlasting, how nice they would be.  
But in this world, nothing is everlasting, earth will fade away but our Lord's love is eternity!

Electrical Appliances And Their Latest Gadgets

Oh dear, my LCD television set is in trouble!  Last night when I switched on the TV, it had a three inches dark patch showing horizontally across the screen.  How awful!  This morning I quickly called up the service center and the man relayed these sad news to me.  He told that it is no point getting the TV repaired, the cost will be almost as high as getting a new TV!  Gosh, that is really sad news!  I remember buying this appliance five or six years ago, don't tell me that I have to brush it aside now?  It is just a waste to put it aside and not repairing it, right?  What should I do actually? I better ask for a second opinion before I purchase a new set.
In fact another one of my TV is also going to "conk" out soon, my son has been pestering me to get a full set of home theater, it is not every expensive, so he said.  But I got to check online first before I decide.  There is this website that gives more details and information on electrical stuff, such as the AVR-4311CI receiver among the many choices here in this website.  My son will love this accessory in the house, he told me that watching a movie is very costly, might as well invest in a good set of these home appliances in our living hall.  Well, I will think about it.... yes...

Vanity Drive

I read this book recently - Vanity Drive by Yvonne Lee.  Initially I thought it is just another one of those "groom up" books but I was very wrong.  From the first chapter onwards, I was so engrossed by her writings on her experiences from a young girl to a mother of three kids now.

Her wits and the way she writes is amusing and I am sure many ladies will agree with me when they read this book. There are some parts that made me laugh .... yes, very true.. just like Us Ladies!...

Thanks Kathy for sharing this book with me...

Thailand Floods

Pray our neighbouring country, Thailand...

I didn t know it was so serious till I read and saw these pictures online...

Their Prime Minister has announced a five day holiday for evacuation... She mentioned that the dikes might not hold out for long.. "dikes" means an embankment for controlling or holding back the waters of the sea or a river.... hearing this, it is sad.......

As if this is not dangerous enough, there is another problem lurking.... Crocodiles are rampant in Thailand and it is reported that scores of them have escaped from the farms during the floods....

Let's pray for the floods to subside in no time... and all will be well....

It is so near... to us....

Count our blessings...

Talk All You Can

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


Ever since my boys have left home to pursue their studies few years ago, I have been calling them frequently through house telephone line or using cell phone.  If I were to add up all my phone bills, I would get a “heart attack!”  To avoid this from happening, I have been asking around how to save cost and at the same time, calling them as often as I can.  Well, the answer could be on this Straight Talk – All You Need Plan. 


I logged into their youtube video clip and their website for more information and details before making a decision.  Briefly about this plan is that it can practically slashed my monthly bills into half, with the lower rate calls to long distance and international calls, my bill will not be as much as I am paying now! This package comes with attractive benefits including 1000 minutes, 1000 free text messages and 300 MB of web data.  Not only that, they offer this without tying up to a contract!  With The power of Android phones at only $45 monthly with unlimited usage, we can have all the apps and games included in as well. Well, for me, lowering rate charges is enough to get my attention and now with the cheap monthly charge, I can now Feel Richer with Android.  Moreover, this package is suitable for all trusted phone manufacturers that include Nokia, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Kyocera and other amazing smart phones with lots of attractive features.  I am sure my kids will love to know more about this plan in Straight Talk.  Here is a brief video clip for your quick understanding.

Online Student Assessment

With the shortage of jobs affecting the young adults in today's economy, one need to achieve at least a degree or if possible a double degree to secure a good income to survive. During my time it was a bit difficult to achieve higher education. There was no Internet during my schooling days, I stayed in a town where there was hardly any universities around too. But now thirty years later, everything is so easily obtained.

IN All Things, Give Thanks!

God is indeed good all the time...

This afternoon my colleague and I were talking about how good God is in our lives... she was so happy for all and whatever God has given to her... she praises Him all the time...
Sensing that, I told her about what my pastor mentioned in his sermon some time ago...
He reminded us that life on earth for Christians is not always smooth... but because we have God by our side, we trust that He will lead us through the stormy paths...

He continued to share with us that we must thank God IN all things... not FOR all things.. they carry a different meaning....

In all circumstances, give thanks.... if something bad happens, do not be forlorn.. give thanks In all in Him and He will make something good out of the "bad."

How Good It Is ...

After the feedback, I need to take up guitar lessons.... the amplifier was too loud and it was very noisy.. I was feeling quite disappointed...

But just a moment ago, I realized that as long as our hearts are on the worship, it does not matter how our voices sound... as long as all praises and glory are dedicated to our Lord God...

MSF Worship And Brunch Buffet

I didn't expect there were so many present for the Methodist Senior Fellowship Brunch Buffet, in fact, I have cold feet after seeing so many people... later I got to to know there were around 260 or so....

I was thinking, "Gosh.. pastor is around... so were other professional musicians among those present for the buffet... sure embarrassing.... " Quickly I said a word of prayer to ask God for help.. "Let me be oblivious of the crowd, lets just sing to You alone.. help me to play good music for You alone, Lord, help me to overcome my self consciousness fears........."

before the brunch....

Let my heart be calm....

getting ready....

Let's get started... serious concentration...

Let's worship our Lord with our hearts...

Warming up...

someone mentioned why I was so serious..

I Know It Is You All The Time...

I believe in God protecting us... I believe in Him talking to us in small voices... prompting.. in a way...

The other night as I was upstairs blogging away, totally engrossed, I heard a sound of an insect somewhere above my head. I brushed it aside... few seconds later, another noise... like it fell on the floor or fell on something that made a sound... and that got me very startled! I got up straightaway and expected to find a cockroach or what on the floor... but Nothing!

Before I could sat down again, I heard some sssss sound... OOPPSSS!!! I quickly ran downstairs....

I suddenly remember that I didn't turn off the gas stove.. the kettle of water had been boiling for more than half hour! The water remaining was only half....

Thank you, God! I know You have sent something to scare me out of my wits.. hahahaa... something that made me get up from my chair instead of engrossing myself in my blogging...

I know it was You... and all the time, it is You.... Thank you!!

Hair Treatment

Both my brothers have less hair at the front, maybe it is genetic? I am not so sure but as far as I remember, my own father did not have this problem. But both of brothers do, another reason that might cause the loss of hair might be due to the hard water when they were staying in another country. I am not sure whether that might be the reason, all I know is they really do need some treatment if they want to restore back their hair. LOL... They might look a bit older than their age, to me, they are fine as they are, men who looks more matured are cool, right? Anyway, if they decide to do some treatments, they can log into this website where the average cost for hair transplants is not that high. Perhaps they can get more information from here before they sign up in other place.

Two Events

I have two events coming up in church, Saturday and Monday. Practice for worshipers is on at 5pm tomorrow and my throat is still so itchy. I have to pray harder for the healing of my throat and running nose. My voice will definitely be hoarse but that does not matter, as long as I do not have to cough in the midst of a song sung, then it is fine. On Monday, it is not so bad, I just have to play the guitar for my sister during the MSF, I do not have to sing. But I pray that on Sunday service, my voice will be healed.

Great Sound System

My son and I just went to Courts to have a look at their products there. It was the first time to this mall for both of us and we were amazed to see that the crowd was there in the electrical section listening to the sound system of certain appliances. There were a number of items on promotion and the prices were definitely cheaper than other electrical companies. We walked around looking at computers, speakers, television sets and we finally realized that those items on sale were actually of older models. It is not surprising that the prices are cheaper because new stocks are coming in.
Andy is interested in the getting a new television in his room, he is planning to change his room to his own theatre. Of course, he needs to get my permission first, he is still in college, no way I am going to allow him that but it would be nice if we could get a good system, something like the TVee Model 30 sound system. Perhaps I should get one set, not now but when he finishes his degree in two years time!

"Heaven" - 911 Tribute - 10 Years Anniversary

Today is September 11 2011... exactly 10 years the devastating tragedy that made the whole world cried....
I was watching the youtube tribute this afternoon and just a moment ago, my heart pained when love ones, the kids of the those who perished gave their eulogy to their dads...

This is the day where hearts unite to remember those who have gone to heaven....

Psalms 18
The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer,
my God is my Rock, in whom I take refuge
He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold....
In my distress I called to the Lord, I cried to my God for help
From His temple he heard my voice
my cry came before Him, into His ears...

You Alone I Praise Lyrics & Chords

You Alone I Praise is sung orginally by New Creation Church in Singapore in 2008 but I only got to know this song just a few days ago when I played the CD in my car. Since then, it was played repeatedly non stop. I searched for the lyrics in Google.... couldn't find any websites linking to this song.

Didn't want to give up, I listened to the song again and I memorized them... so easy and yet so tough when it comes to school books! After the lyrics, the next step is the guitar chords. With God's blessing, I got the guitar chords in the lyrics as well...

Praise the Lord... we want to proclaim this song to our Heavenly Father...

Our first recording together ... not perfect at all... please bear with us...


My righteousness F G My holiness

F Am

Emmanuel. F G Living in me


Merciful king To you I sing

F am

Matchless in worth F E You re awesome indeed

Am F

You alone I praise C G The lamb upon the throne


You alone I praise CG To make your glory known

Am F

You alone I praise CG The keeper of my heart

Am Em

You alone I praise F GC Jesus lover of my soul


Give Thanks With A Grateful Heart

I went to this cat blog a few minutes ago and from there, I came to know this quaylo blog ... In the midst of reading half way, it touched my heart to know that this particular lady celebrated her birthday in an old folks home in Kajang. It dawned upon me that each day is not just a blessed day for all of us, it also makes me realize that I should be thankful of what I am today....

While many times I have wallowed in self pitiness and sorrow, I realize that I did not focus on God... He was far from me... but I am wrong, He is not "distancing" Himself... the person who keeps away from Him is ME... I was the one who keeps a distance... and now I do not want to anymore..

Coming back to this post I read.... these poor elderly people are lonely.. all they want is companionship... I remember going to a Caring Home here in IPOH... while I was there, I notice a scene that nearly made me broke down in tears... The JOY and the Smile on this auntie's face was so obvious when her teenaged girl went in with her father to visit her. The radiant look on her face showed how much she missed them. That made me wonder why.... why did she has to stay in the caring home instead of being at home with her son and granddaughter??

I put myself in her shoes... and I had to swallow back the lump in my throat..... will I end up like her one day, looking forward to seeing my kids to visit me once awhile? It is a sad thought... but I remember telling my kids...

If they really want to put me in a home, make sure it is a very nice comfortable one and most important, equip me with a LAPTOP!

All You Need Plan

This post brought to you by Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.

My two sons are staying away from home, one is working and the other one is still in college.  I call them almost every day so can you imagine my phone bills monthly?  Yes, the bills are quite costly and I just could not cut down my calls because I miss them so.  Lately when I heard about Straight Talk and their benefits, I am so glad that I finally found a way to cut down my phone bills.  everything you need seems to be here in this plan.

Firstly, you do not have to sign a contract using Straight Talk plan, they only uses trusted phone manufacturers that include Nokia, LG, Motorola to name a few. , Straight Talk offers great nationwide coverage and excellent reception and connectivity.

Secondly, my phone bill can be cut into half and I can use the money saved to visit them occasionally!  That would be great, right?  Okay, now the benefits, it includes heavy phone users such as me.  The “All You Need Plan” is great for me, it comes with 1000 minutes, 1000 texts and 30 MB of web data.  Wow..this is more than enough for me!  call a friend, call many friends, they are limitless!

Monthly charges as low as $45 only and we can get all the unlimited calls, text, picture messaging, web plus free activation, international long distance calls and many more.  Read all about it in their Straight Talk website.  The list seems endless and I feel this is a perfect plan for the young and old, for mothers like me.  My kids always tell me ... mom knows best!  LOL

Max On Life

I love Max Lucado's books, they are so simple to read, not complicated and the most important is that, the words speak to me. Easy understanding, yes, that is Max Lucado. I first heard about Max through my cell leader, she told me that if we want to read books about spiritual growth, we don't have to search far, just look for Max Lucado's books. He has a gift of writing and I believe that he writes it with God in his heart.

In his latest book Max On Life, again he answers our heart's desire on the word "Faith." Faith is unseeing, as in a Christian life, "Believing is Seeing"... seeing God's works in our lives. Max has written this book with so many spiritual based answers on more than 150 questions posed. In a christian life, we have many questions which are left unanswered, reading this book, it enlightens us and make a better understand on our Almighty God. We all have a choice, to read and to follow. God gives us a choice, He will help us when we have chose and He will continue to guide us through.

This book Max On Life is highly recommended to both christians and non-christians. I am sure we will have a better understanding on our spiritual life after reading this book.

The Benefits of Listening to Good Music

When you feel tired and a little stressed out. Take a seat, play your favorite tunes and let your mind be away from all the worries even for just an hour so. You’ll be surprised to feel more relaxed afterwards. This is the power of good music; it can soothe your senses and your mind. There is a certain “magic” in songs that can actually make you feel better. Researchers and medical professionals even consider listening to music as a good form of therapy.

Too much stress and a series of tragic events could send a person in a depression. This behavior that could disrupt one’s daily activities can be treated. Try listening to good music that brings back happy memories. Let it set an uplifting mood that could help you forget the traumatic experiences and focus more on the happy ones.

Those suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease could also benefit from listening to music. There are some health care facilities that offer music therapy sessions to old people and studies show that patients show positive response while listening to familiar tunes that often bring them back to their younger years. This helps them remember the past moments in their life.

If you are having a hard time trying to sleep, a few relaxing songs can relax your nerves and mind. This can stimulate a good sleep which is also vital in order to achieve a healthy body. Who would think that an activity as simple as listening to music could provide your body with a number of benefits?
