A time for thanksgiving for 2018

Time for making resolutions There are some friendships that sort of grow with you. From our 20s to 50s, though we do not keep in contact, the same kind of connection stays. So as the year is fast ending, I am thankful that I still have those friends. The kind which I will probably call if I am dying,...

Discover Penang and fall in love

The sunset on Oct 1 was so breathtaking beautiful I have to dedicate just a blog post to wax lyrical how beautiful Penang is.

A grace filled Lent

Tell me, which boss consulted everyone about firing you but did not even talk to you about accusations she heard? Well, that was what I get. A Whatsapp to ask me to resign.

The mob mentality kills

Am reflecting on the last days of Jesus. Today (Sunday) Jesus entered Jerusalem and was hailed as King. The people cheered and welcomed him by waving palms. However, within a few days, people shouted for Him to be crucify. I bet those crowd did not really know what they are doing except to follow the...

How to roast chicken, turkey or leg of lamb

Many people feel intimidated with the thought of roasting and struggling with a large turkey, leg of lamb or a huge chicken.

Feeling blessed on Christmas

Last night, I had a blessed Christmas makan at my place. There was no standing room and people spilled to the balcony and foyer.

“How do you feel?”

How do you feel? is a question that we often asked in our counselling course. It must be said with such feelings, using your hands, with palms open and do that fanning up from the heart to conjure up feelings. I spent 100 hours in counselling course and I got a certificate signed by the...

Don’t be too much of an assh*le

I dont know about others but I have this sense of helplessness hanging around me after so many deaths and tragedies. Previously, we relied on our local TV stations and newspapers for news. Now, we get raw emotions delivered to us live. We see gory photos and videos. We keep our eyes glued to the...

It has been 12 years now

Dear Vincent You would have been 13 now. I have plenty of 13 years old in my class so I do not need to visualise how big 13 years old are. Today, I suddenly thought what you would have been like if you are still around. Sensible as I am, I know you had taken [] [[ This is a content summary only.

Mother-in-law’s legacy fulfilled for this CNY

Today is the 5th day of Chinese New Year and I can finally put up my legs with a relaxed mind. No more list of things to buy, things to do and time schedules plotting in my brains.
