Happy New Year 2017

3rd Feb 2017

Happy New Year!

I know it’s a wee bit too late to wish that, but it wouldn’t feel right if I don’t wish it over here. In my blog. My one lonely blog. I know I’ve promised a lot of times that I WILL start blogging again… but I guess the busyness with stuff in the real world had taken most of my free time.

So my brother got me a fit watch last Christmas in hopes that I would get back into the fitness routine that I once did. Yeah, I guess I would. I’ve also bought a brand new Skechers (it’s Pink!!) for that purpose. Woohoo!

I’ll probably check out those edirol ua 25 as well to add into my fitness routine. Let’s hope this won’t be another ‘promise’ I made myself, because honestly, I really hate breaking promises especially when it’s a promise I made for myself. =/

love is sweet

So my dear friend Sandy finally got married and had her reception early last month.

I was placed in charged with a few things for the reception, among them was to set up the mini dessert table.

The venue of the reception was at Supertanker Restaurant. On the 1st Floor. There was NO elevator. So can you imagine me – doing everything on my own – from carrying the banquet table up, along with the cake stands, porcelain trays, table cloth, flowers etc? I kid you not, I think I lost a few inches from just going up and down the stairs. lol

But everything went according to plan. I managed to setup the dessert table and the backdrop. The party was lovely, everyone enjoyed themselves. The dessert table was a popular hit with the desserts gone in less than 5 minutes! And the music contributed to the fun too. Everyone enjoyed great music and great karaoke session. The deejay (who probably has ax7) played a few popular songs which got everyone on their feet.

Oh how I love weddings!

in His love

2nd Apr 2016

God really loves me. He loves us. In fact, He loves you and me.

One evening, I was so exhausted and tired that I wanted to just break down and cry while eating a cake. Or maybe 2 cakes. I just want to get away from all the things that makes me tired..

And then God sent me a cake.

I kid you not. A neighbor went out station and requested us (me & my partner) to keep an eye on her house. It was a simple gesture we did for her, but imagine my surprise when she came back and came knocking on the door – with a cake!!

The cake was too big and too much for just the 2 of us, so I brought it to our Charismatic group’s jam practice last Thursday and shared with everyone there. It was a hit. Brought some leftover back to be shared with the doggies at home too.

But God did not stop there. He sent another box of pink cupcakes!

This was a gift from another baker friend. in fact, this was the 2nd box of pink cupcakes she gave me. I did just a small favor for her and she rewarded me with cupcakes.

If you are still in doubt of God’s love, please don’t. These gift of cake and cupcakes is just one of the many examples of how God is showing us that He loves us. He sent ‘angels’ in the form of our neighbors or friends to tell us of His love.

“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” (1 John 3:1)

it came upon a midnight clear..

27th Dec 2015

So Christmas 2015 is over. All the presents are opened, all the rum-filled fruit cakes are almost gone. Our best Christmas dress worn. What is there left to see?

The amount of money you have left in the bank! *dark laughter ensued*

Shamefully, I must admit, I have spent a fortune on this year’s Christmas.. Of course there’s the Christmas savings that I saved up since early January 2015, but I have gone overboard with the Christmas shopping spree. I mean, there’s the sale at Bath & Bodyworks that nobody can resist. And then along came those Christmas baubles on sale at Metrojaya. Who can resist Christmas baubles??? I know I can’t! Let’s not even talk about Christmas lights, Christmas stockings, Christmas deco, candles, plaid table cloths, Rum-filled fruit cakes….. ahhhhh the list goes on!

So what have I learned from this year’s experience?

To save more money of course. Also to have a complete list for Christmas – only buy what’s in the list! Probably gonna put in more kitchen stuff in the list since I am planning to get domesticated even more. *:P* Gotta learn more about heavy duty slides as well…

How was your Christmas spending?
