Woke up early this morning, so decided to bake ourselves a matcha chiffon cake. Bren likes it! Happy :)
“Praise the Lord! How good to sing praises to our God! How delightful and how fitting! The Lord is rebuilding Jerusalem and bringing the exiles back to Israel. He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds. He counts the stars and calls them all by name. How great is our Lord! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension!”
Always, always…I will always choose to praise Him. :)
Bren sometimes teases me, asking me when I’d like to visit Paris again. It’s so pricey, I’m not sure it’ll happen anytime soon. But it was a holiday that was incredibly romantic and special, and always brings back sweet memories whenever I recall.
So since I can’t visit Paris anytime soon, I attempted to bake a “Student Charlotte Apricot Cake” since I stumbled onto a recipe for homemade ladyfingers. Can’t say it looks very pretty, but it was sweet & brought back a taste of Paris….. :)
Bren is on leave for the next 2 weeks! Couldn’t be happier to have him around more. :) happy that he gets to have more rest too.
Have been spending a lot more time cooking & baking since both of us have the time to eat together more often now, and it stretches the dollar more too.
Went to town this afternoon and just spent time window shopping & chatting about friends, work, colleagues and things in general. Always something to be amused about, always something to share. :) happy times!
Okie, Bren is chasing me to quickly finish updating my blog cos he wants me to play games with him, haha. Not that I’m much of a gamer (actually, am a very poor one), but if it makes him happy…..I’ll try. :p
A few pictures of the past week:
Have a blessed week ahead!
Just came back from our Teacher’s Day Retreat, and tummy is so pampered with all the good food. Had Korean BBQ grill buffet, and especially loved the beef bulgogi. More importantly, the sweet fellowship was what I enjoyed most. Seeing the team bonding with one another, laughing and cracking jokes…it made me happy. We laugh together, we cry together. We pray together, for we are one Body of Christ. :)
Over the past week, met up with Carol too. How I’ve missed her… Meet ups with her always touch a very sweet spot in me, and I glean lots of wisdom from her. Looking foward to when she comes back again in December – she will be teaching me how to bake egg tarts! Ha..ha… Let’s hope I make a good student.
Thankful for a restful weekend ahead. Sabbath…… :) & perhaps some baking too. Yay.
