Give Thanks With A Grateful Heart

Wake up to the sound of birds chirping outside my balcony .... they sing the same old song each morning...
Oh, I could hide 'neath the wings
Of the bluebird as she sings.
The six o'clock alarm would never ring.
But six rings and I rise,
Wipe the sleep out of my eyes.
My cleanser's cold and it stings....
(Can anyone tell me the name of this song?)

Each morning once I put my legs on the floor, the very first thing I do is to give Thanks and Praise that I can still wake up alive and kicking to a brand new day!  Give a smile...... 
hmmmm.... today is Chee Cheong Fun for breakfast....
Another thanks to be praised for food laid on the table...
(Illustrated picture)
With full energy, it is time to work...
Thanks for having a job..... 
Come lunch time... 
it is a mug of oats with bun with an "O" in the middle...
Thanks again....
Dinner is a must.... Mama's place...
Giving Thanks!! 
Something I love to look forward to.... 
A time to give Thanks and Praise...

I wrote the above not because they happened today.... I write for a reason to remind myself that there are a lot I should be thankful for.....I must not complain, I must not fret... this is the day that God has made... we should rejoice and be glad in it... Give Thanks in all circumstance...Reanaclaire.....

  5. Pasal lagu, sure I tak kalah one...old or new, no problem!

    Yes, give thanks for every little thing we are blessed with, even on an uneventful day. Whatever it may be, we should always give thanks that we are alive and well.

    Too many spend their time complaining about every little thing under the sun - most of which will not change even if they moan and groan till kingdom come. The only thing that is sure to result is they not only make themselves depressed and miserable, even angry...but also everyone around them, friends and family alike. I wouldn't want to be in the company of the likes of these.

  17. Your mum's exactly like me then. Tak tahan see anything already open sitting there in the fridge or elsewhere, must quickly finish one. LOL!!!

    So you can guess who will finish all those packets or boxes of cookies that my missus or my girl opens and stuffs inside some Tupperware and leaves them there. I guess that explains my shape and size... Hehehehehe!!!!

  18. Ling: a Bogus teacher, hor? hahaha...


    stp: No prize for guessing who, right? hahahaha... normally for my case, whatever cookies I cannot finish, I will pass them all to my 4 legged family member! (All except chocolates!) LOL...

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes....

Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
