How to cook like a Chef?

How to cook like our dear chef Daniel?

Here's a meat lagsania recipe to help you.

** Please note that the result will varies with different people and cooking utensils**

Meat Lasagna--------------------
9 lasagna noodles
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound ground beef
1 pound bulk Italian sausage
1 (16 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
4 (15 ounce) cans tomato sauce salt and pepper to taste
1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese
3 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.
Add the lasagna noodles and olive oil;
cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes; drain.
Cook the ground beef and sausage in a large pot over medium heat; drain.
Stir in the mushrooms, garlic salt, oregano, thyme, basil, and tomato sauce.
Season with salt and pepper; simmer 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix together the ricotta cheese, eggs, and Parmesan cheese in a bowl.
Ladle enough of the meat sauce into a 9x13 inch baking dish to cover the bottom in a thin layer.
Form a layer atop the sauce with 3 of the lasagna noodles.
Spread about 1/4 of the ricotta cheese mixture over the noodles.
Sprinkle about 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese over the ricotta cheese mixture and then ladle about 1/3 of the meat sauce over the mozzarella cheese. Repeat layering twice more, topping with the remaining 1/4 pound of mozzarella cheese. Bake in preheated oven 90 minutes.
Allow to sit 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

Happy cooking.

Time for Praise

The Festival of Praise will be on this weekend from 1st to 3rd August, 7.30pm, in Indoor Stadium. Hence, there will be no service at Expo.

The FOP is now moving with time... Last year, they had Delirious, this year we are having Reuben Morgan. *Whoa hoo!*

I remember many years ago when I first attended, they had a bunch of Tambourine Dancers in colourful costume running around on the floor area dancing to their own beat, but now, we'll dance to the beat of the Christian Rockers!!!

But important thing is not the music and the dancers... what's important is to come with an open heart, and praise God with the right attitude. Also to receive God's word with the right attitude.

So let's all come and expect a life changing experience.

Durian Season

I wonder on which day God made the durian...

God has a very good sense of humor and creativity...

He made durian one of the ugliest and smelliest fruit in the world but yet its the best tasting one ever... commonly known by the Caucasians that its "Smells like hell but tastes like heaven"

Its either you like it or you don't.

Durian has been made into many products...

Durian puffs stuffed with exquisite durian flesh retaining the original taste of durian.

Durian can be made into dried chips sold to far away countries.

Or blend into smooth puddings chilled for the hot weather.

Southeast Asian folk beliefs, as well as traditional Chinese medicine, consider the durian fruit to have warming properties liable to cause excessive sweating. The traditional method to counteract this is to pour water into the empty shell of the fruit after the pulp has been consumed and drink it. An alternative method is to eat the durian in accompaniment with mangesteen, which is considered to have cooling properties. People with high blood pressure or pregnant women are traditionally advised not to consume durian.

But how do you choose a right durian? Seriously... I rather choose the right durian seller.

I've seen forums telling people to keep away from certain durian stall opp Geylang Lor 11. Their hard sell tactics give you no time to react and you'll be forced to spend $200 on just a few durians, just like our recent F1 race, one of the race's requirement is to bring back a durian. One of the member brought back a $75 durian.

Angeline's 22nd Birthday


The Picture on the right shows Angeline celebrating her 21st birthday with us last year. The one on the left is her celebrating her 22nd birthday last Thursday.

See any difference of her after a year? Much slimmer of course. More mature looking... Healthier skin color, prettier.


Her jovial personality makes her well loved by everyone in the Cell Group. She leads game before every meeting, even the most boring game can be so fun with her around. (not that there is any boring game at all)


A nice gift bought by our "Shopping Ministry" shopping specialists.

Amanda is either very happy for Angeline or ...

Father's Day Special

A tribute to all fathers...

This is a short video to pay tribute to the fathers of N116.

I know, comercially we fathers are not as much appreciated as our counter parts. Our marketing value may not be as high. But here in N116, we see everyone the same, because God sees everyone the same.

May all the fathers continue to carry the image of Christ within them and be the living example to their children.
