Food For Thought


The partner who hogs the covers every night,
because he Is not out with someone else.

The child who is not cleaning his room, but
Is watching TV, because that means he Is at
home and not on the streets.

For the taxes that I pay,
because it means that I am employed.

For the mess to clean after a party,
because it means that I have been
surrounded by friends.

For the clothes that fit a little too snug,
because it means I have enough to eat.

For my shadow that watches me work,
because it means I am in the sunshine.

For a lawn that needs mowing,
windows that need cleaning,
and gutters that need fixing,
because it means I have a home.

For the parking spot I find at the far
end of the parking lot, because It means
I am capable of walking and that I have
been blessed with transportation.

For my huge heating/cooling bill,
because it means I am warm/refreshed.

For the lady behind me in church that
sings off key, because it means that
I can hear.

For the pile of laundry and Ironing,
because it means I have clothes to wear.

For weariness and aching muscles at
the end of the day, because it means
I have been capable of working hard.

For the alarm that goes off in the
early morning hours, because it
means I am alive.

And finally...

For too much e-Mail,
because it means I have friends who
are thinking of me.

Bake it, cook it like a pro

In n116, we have chefs that cooks and bakes like a pro, feeds us with yummy cakes for birthdays and yummy food for refreshment (although only occasionally like during Christmas).

One of my favourite stores that is a one-stop centre for an extensive range of quality tableware, kitchenware, foodservice, and related equipment and utensils for the food and beverage industry, is none other than Sia Huat Pte Ltd located at No. 7, 9 & 11 Temple Street.

Whatever you need, can be found there.

Amanda's Birthday

Last week was a busy week for all of us with the asia conference going on. Of course even in the midst of busyness, we have not forgotten our dear Amanda's birthday, which falls on 21st November! Although the celebration was short and everyone was tired after the long night service ended, we just could not miss this important time to send her our birthday wishes, prayers and of course the yummy mango cake!

The New Life

When everyone is busy preparing their heart to jump into the pool, these two beautiful ladies have not forgotten to give their million dollar smile. "Mummy! I am on camera! "

Preparing hearts...

Steps by steps. Hearts are pounding rapidly.

"I baptise you in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit"

A new life begins..

I am the light of the world

I am the apple of God's eyes.

I am the salt of the earth

I have the crown of righteousness

Gifts of empowerment.

Special towels created with love by the celllgroup.

Lovely sunflowers for the lovely ladies by the lovely Jennifer.

Mission Accomplished!!

What are the rest of people doing during the baptism ?

Long overdue post -- Sorry!! *warning graphic intensive post*
Michael's bday - 9th Oct

While Michael is making wishes, we hear someone laughing..

(hee.. hee.. ha.. ha.. hee... --> sounds familiar ? )

"Amanda, you go stand one corner."

And she did. (She's still laughing)

"We'll have someone to say something special to you..."

"But..Sorry it's not Grace.."

Amanda's classic: "Mike, The 1st time I saw you.....I thought you were..."
Amanda reveals her heartfelt thoughts about Mike as she slowly got to knew him, and her heartfelt thanks for always so willing to send her and the rest home to the east area after cell group after a long day.

The gift to Mike - A wallet

Meredith's Bday - 6 Nov

Jen gathered everyone for a game during fellowship, and she got everyone to put down their cups, plates and spoon and tissue and food...except for one who's still munching

Here goes, the game of passing messages.

P.S. I Love you.

The message MUST be passed accurately.

Dith wonders what declaration she has to make coz she's the last person in the line.

"Tomorrow is my birthday!!!"
Lights off.
Birthday song.
"God is blessing you now!!!!!!"
And the cake is brought to her..Yummy chocolate cheese cake from Daniel.

"In n116, we have a 'tradition' of having someone to say something encouraging to the birthday person and this person is none other than Benny!!!"


"It's me?!?!?!?!?"

The other person was supposed to be Michele, but she couldn't make it for the cg, Jennifer reads out the "love letter" from Michele

Meredith says it's her 1st time celebrating her birthday with her cell grp and so it was her 1st time having so many people singing the birthday song to her..

So Dorothy sang the birthday song to her once again...;)
before we presented the gifts to her

Cake Cutter hard at work.
This is the new person who has to do the mental calculation to make sure everyone has a piece of cake.
