Christmas Cheers To Hope, Lotus, Lighthouse.....

ON TWO FINE MORNINGS AROUND 8.30AM, OUR CAROLING GROUP SET OUT AGAIN...

The places we went to are Hope Haemodialysis, Comfort Home, Lotus Home, an elderly couple's house, Lighthouse, Chinese Med Hospital and Daybreak.

At each place, we sang a five to six Christmas songs, some of them include Joy To The World, O Come O Ye Faithful, Drummer Boy, O Holy Night, Go Tell It on the Mountains, Angels We have Heard On High among the twelve songs we have chosen and ends with We Wish You A Merry Christmas with cheers and wishes!

We spent some time distributing some cookies and lingering with the people for a short while before proceeding to our next venue.  It was a fun and cheery day for all of us, though of course, by the end of the day, we were feeling very exhausted.  No doubt about that, we are no more "spring chickens" but nevertheless, our voices and laughter do not tell on us.  LOL.....

All in all, we visited around seven venues on three different days.  This is the first time for me, going round and singing carols, how did I feel?  One word.... Wonder-ful!!

  3. Beautiful smiling faces doing God's work!! What a wonderful ministry this is at Christmas!! I know that all of you being there will maybe be the only Christmas some of these people have. Our church used to carol every year, then return to the church for hot chocolate and cookies. For some reason, we have not done it recently. And that makes me sad.

  4. Merry Christmas and Happy 2018 to you and your family.

    The satisfaction in bringing joy and cheer to the less fortunate cannot be bought with money, it can only be earned.

    God bless all of you.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is....

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

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...
