Oh Sushi

Image
We went to Oh Sushi at the De Gardens one fine Friday night. Since we haven't been there before, I would love to give it a try.


Just before we made an entrance, my girl told me that the restaurant would give 5% discount for Jusco Card holder. So I had to go back to my car to get my card. I left it to them to find a place inside the restaurant.


When I came back with the card, I saw that they were seated next to the counter just immediately after the entrance. Well, normally, I would find a seat further away from the counter. Since they were already seated, I wouldn't want to make a fuss about it.


The place looked good. I started taking some pictures. While they chose their meals, I simply had a look at the menu and started snapping away. I was hardly into half the menu book, I heard a voice from behind,



"Don't take pictures of the menu!"

It was loud and clear. I stopped and pretended nothing had happened. But I was grumbling softly, "I do it for you. Don't you…

Good News Cup

This is a very special mug..

"Have a hot drink and be blessed!



I was curious as I saw it standing on the table at my friend's place.



It has a ceramic cover.

"For God so loved the world
that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in Him
shall not perish but have eternal life."




According to the giver, the mug had to be filled with hot water.

I was eager to see the transformation
so my friend poured hot water into it and covered it. Immediately, I could see it!
created..separated

here..
loved..redeemed


and here..all around the mug
risen..reconciled


Isn't it amazing?


But I am not sure how the words are connected.

I definitely loved the word

"reconciled"


Reconciliation

Image
My mum has eight children. We were rather poor and when my eldest sister was born, my mum was not able to take care of her. My grandmother who was my father's stepmother, adopted her. My mum was not allowed to visit my sister at all. So as she grew up, she regarded herself an orphan. But my aunties ie my father's stepsisters, were understanding and they tried to make our relationship worked.

However, she knew that she has 4 brothers and 3 sisters. I was in the same school as her. We did see each other quite often in school. As I grew older and I knew how to cycle, I would cycle to my grandmother's house to visit my sister.

One day, I talked to my sister about our parents. She was not happy as she was the only one not with the family. I told her to reconcile with my mum but she refused saying that my grandmother was the one that supported her through and not my mum.

I told her that she was lucky as she could go to university but not us as my parents couldn't afford it. Som…

Christmas Hampers

Image
Well, I started wrapping hampers as a novice. I started in June 2008 when I did the very first one. I took ages in just wrapping a single hamper. I even needed help from someone in accomplishing the wrapping.

As time goes by, I become better and better. Now I just do it all on my own.

Here's my hampers!


Guess..
How much were they?


That's my very spot where I always do my hampers.


Here, I did the smallest one.
It's only RM30!
Very saleable too!



Christmas Brunch

I have known this couple since 1999 when we did our Tesl degree together. We enjoyed each other's company when we were away from our hometown studying in UPSI. We did our assignments together too.

After graduating, we still keep in touch with each other. Both of them are my only Indian friends who always visit me during CNY and I am their only Chinese friend who always visit them during Christmas.

After a short stop at my husband's shop to get some stuff as gifts, my girl and I quickly rushed to their house at about 11pm.

Merry Christmas, my dear friend!

Happy Red Christmas!

Togetherness!


Last Sunday, I bought Christmas caps for my staff. Since Monday, we had been wearing the caps. They were all very cooperative. I decided that we wore red on Christmas day and they were complying very well.

So today we wore red to celebrate Christmas. The customers were amazed to see us in good Christmas spirit. We were all so gleeful and cheerful!


Peace to you!


Harmony to you!


Sincerity!


Fairness!


Cheerful!


Loving!


Joy to you!


Merry Christmas!

Marina Bay Sands features three 55-storey hotel towers which were topped out in July 2009. The three towers are connected by a 1 hectare sky terrace on the roof, named Sands SkyPark. In front of the three towers include a Theatre Block, a Convention and Exhibition Facilities Block, as well as the Casino Block, which have up to 1000 gaming tables and 1400 slot machines. The Art-Science Museum is constructed next to the three blocks and has the shape of a lotus. Its roof will be retractable, providing a waterfall through the roof of collected rainwater when closed in the day and with laser shows when opened at night. The Art-Science Museum opens in December 2010. The SkyPark is home to the world's longest elevated swimming poolwith a 146-metre (478-foot) vanishing edge, perched 191 metres above the ground.
