Think Before We Speak

What the Bible says is very true...I forgot which chapter it is but something like this it says...
"All food are clean and can be eaten... only words that come forth from the mouths of men (us) that are evil and unclean."
I truly believe that... as humans, we sometimes said things to hurt one another, to spoil one another's reputation without realizing it, to create some misunderstandings among friends. It has been done... it might be too late to restore back the trust. WE need to be very careful on what we say, once the words are spoken, they are very difficult to be retrieved....

  2. Agree ...sometimes people speak with malice and after that can pretend like nothing had happen. while other times people speaks without thinking and ter-oppss.

    If genuine ter-opps i can forgive...but if malice...ihave an elephant's memory.

  5. So we have to understand the intentions of the speaker. Sometimes they say we accuse people of saying bad things about us because we are in a state of denial. :D I believe we must accept both criticism and praise with open heart.

  6. What we have said cannot be swallowed back again...and God gave us one mouth and two ears, so we should listen more than we speak! That's why I'm the quiet type... Hehehehehe!!!

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

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
