Give Thanks No Matter What....

Had another hectic day.... happy, worrying....and exhausted now...
Feeling happy because Andy finally finished his O levels and AAron is back for his 2 months semester holiday .... hope my girl will not complain of boredom anymore ....

Worrying because my buddy, Lynn is admitted to hospital again because of morning sickness. She is 7 weeks pregnant and feeling giddy 24/7. She is on CRIB now, she cannot eat or drink and any slightest movement, she will vomit. She is counting the days when she will reach her 3rd month so that she can be eating normally again... right now, we pray that she will overcome this giddiness ... we miss her bubbly laughter, it is not the same without her.

Exhausted now... with mixed emotions....happy and worrying for different persons, different reasons.... that reminds me... in all circumstances, good or bad, give thanks to our God.. for no matter what happens, He will lead us through, never forsake nor leaving us....


  1. I am agree with u...give thanks for everything..even for the bad, because the bad thing is usually the beginning of the god things...

  2. ur right miss claire, give thanks no matter what.
    take care

  3. Amen to this. We have to give thanks for everything..and let the good things outnumber the bad.

    God bless and Take Care!!!

  4. im blessed than others, thats what i think, and i always gave thanks

  5. Women are the greatest person! Not only giving birth is tough, but the process of pregnancy as well. But it is very rare to hear pregnant lady having giddiness 24/7. Let's pray together for her :)

    And you are right, thanks for everything, no matter happiness or sadness. They train us to be a better person in some ways :)

  6. hi claire,

    well, she's gonna be alright. Different women react differently to early pregnancy; some don't have severe morning sicknes.

    give her strength and encouragement. After all, you've been through that not once, but three times :)

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
