God Is Watching..?

1st Jul 2006

The other night, I had the strangest dream ever.

I was walking on a bridge with my niece, admiring the beautiful things we see around us. While we were talking, my niece accidentally slip and fell into the river. Terrified, I screamed for help while watching her helplessly sink into the deep water.

I remember there were 2 person who came over, with the intention to help.. but I couldn’t remember who that 2 person was. They asked me where she is, and I kept pointing at her, inside the river. They asked me again, “Where?? Where is she??” I was surprised how they couldn’t see her, sinking inside, staring at us with a look of fear. I kept pointing at her, and still, neither of them could see her. For some reason, I don’t know why I didn’t jump in to pull her up….

In the end, I saw how her life was taken slowly… and I started to cry. In between sobs, I could hear her voice whispering to me, “It’s ok… They let me come back..” Then I saw a reflection of her in the water, motioning me with her fingers on her lips… as way of saying “Shhh…” And for some reason, the 3 of us started to close our eyes and pray!

While I was closing my eyes, the most beautiful thing happened. I couldn’t explain it in words.. For the first time in my life, I feel so peaceful, like everything was lifted up from my body. (Ughh… I’m actually shedding tears while writing this.. :P) There was bright light around us and it feels like the time had stopped. I said a prayer, but I can’t remember which prayer exactly that I said…

And when I opened my eyes, I saw my niece, standing in front of us, smiling. Sitting on our hands, was a Bible, for each of us. It was the MOST beautiful Bible I’ve ever seen. It’s old, and the colors are faded, but it’s still very beautiful!!

Here’s the rough sketch I made that I could remember of the Bible I saw in my dream. It’s not 100% like the ones I saw.. but it’s the closest resemblance that I can remember..



I couldn’t decipher what the dream was about… maybe it’s just another dream of mine. But one thing for sure is, I believe that there Is someone up there, who has been looking after me all of this time…

I went to Pasar Malam today and bought this. Mmmm.. yummy.

I include the recipe here, in case you wanna put your cooking skill to test. :P

Ingredients

  • 300g yam, diced
  • 300g sweet potatoes, diced
  • 75g black-eyed beans, soaked for 2–3 hours
  • 75g pearl sago
  • A few drops pink colouring
  • 450g grated coconut
  • 1.2 litres water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Syrup:

  • 125g sugar
  • 3–4 pandan leaves, shredded and knotted
  • 1 cup water
  • Method

    Steam sweet potatoes and yam separately for 10–15 minutes or until soft. Set aside. Boil soaked black-eyed beans until soft. Drain and set aside.

    Put sago in a sieve then place sieve in a large bowl. Rinse sago under running tap water then cook the sago in a pot of hot water until transparent. Remove and rinse under cold water and drain. Add colouring to sago and coat with 2 tablespoons tapioca flour.

    Squeeze and strain grated coconut to obtain thick coconut milk. Add salt to the thick coconut milk and keep refrigerated. Add 1.2l water to the coconut residue and squeeze to obtain thin coconut milk.

    Boil sugar, water and pandan leaves until sugar dissolves. Add thin coconut milk and continue to boil for 5–6 minutes. Add yam, sweet potatoes, black-eyed beans and sago. Stir evenly. Add thick coconut milk and at the first sign of boiling, immediately remove the pot from the heat. Remove the pandan leaves and serve either hot or cold. :party:

    I don’t feel very well today :sick: .. well, not that I’m sick, but I just don’t have the mood to talk, smile nor do I want to laugh. (Is that normal??) :eek: Maybe the lil argument I had with someone lastnight still have an effect on me..

    I have craving for Chocolate Cake again! :D OMG, that’s all I can think of right now, but it’s over midnight, and the bakery’s closed. :(

    I’ll stop by Strudels tomorrow to buy me some cake, come rain or shine! :D
