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!!

Before setting out and after prayer at the church compound... 
At the Hope.... 
Seriously singing and our crazy stint once it was over....

The End....

  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.

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....

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

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
