I Must Make it a Point to have PQT!

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

Yes! I went to home fellowship today and the pastor made a valid point. We my have our regular PQT (Personal Quiet Time).

As practising Christians, we should make PQT a priority and set aside some time each day for it. God wants a relationship with us. And we can only have a relationship with God if we make time for Him.

I've been very lax in this respect. I will make it a point from now on to carve out some time each day for PQT! I normally do it before bed. I will have to spend time with God each night and not go straight to bed. Reason being, I'm just not a morning person.

Have you done your PQT?

  


A Lovely Dinner for my Dad's Birthday!

Monday, August 01, 2011

We had salted duck's egg yolk encrusted prawns (very crispy & yummy),
Sweet & sour pork (fried crisp with a coating of sauce),
Birthday noodles (quite yummy too!),

And........

The crown of the show, sweet and sour crabs! Very fleshy and sweetly fresh! Had a difficult time prying out the meat from the shells though.

Then we had mango mouse cake as the birthday cake.

A delicious day! But my Dad is getting old..........I had my picture taken with him beside the cake. If I had more money, I'll get him better gifts. I only go him a BPA free bottle to put his water in when he goes to work.......

Sounds quite delicious, an interesting menu, I love crab YUM!!
You know I bet your dad is very happy with his new water bottle,he knows it was chosen and given with love , and that is far more important than the cost.

Managed to get a little sewing done!

Sunday, July 31, 2011

Well, I've made some progress with my cross-stitch project but I still have a long way to go. I didn't go anywhere today. Couldn't afford to. I'll have to go the church next Sunday though. I have to return those library books.

I will take a photo of my cross-stitch project and post it here when it's all done! Keep your fingers crossed!

  


This Must be My Lucky Day!

Saturday, July 30, 2011

I walked to the nearby mini mall because I wanted to buy St. Dalfour jam. They sell the jam for a cheaper price over there. I also wanted to buy some Head & Shoulder's shampoo but it was a little too expensive so I bought a cheaper brand of anti-dandruff shampoo (Sunsilk).

With the money I saved, I bought a cheeseburger from McDonald's. On impulse, I whispered to the cashier if I could have some extra pickles in my cheeseburger. All I know is I got lot's of pickles in my cheeseburger for no extra charge! Wasn't that nice? I love pickles! Especially in my cheeseburger!

On my way home, I decided to drop in the convenience store at the petrol station. The manager actually treated me to 2 tim tams! (chewy caramel flavour, my fave!).

I feel very lucky today, plus I got my exercise in, 60 minutes of walking!
