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.

  12. P.S.:
    Those pacific clams (I think that is what they're called)! So many in that dish in your photo. Very nice, very sweet...like abalone...but I think they've high cholesterol content, right or not? Use a few at a time for the sweetness when frying vegetables, slice thinly...should be fine. Sorry, ya...me so kay-po. Old people like that lah. Hehehehehehehe!!!!

  16. Claire, at a glance I thought u were teaching in a class. ada gaya cikgu!

  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!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  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...

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
