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.:

  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!!!!

  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

FAILED THIS TIME..... 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.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
