Brunei Darussalam

sorry for the long hiatus.. been busy and lazy..
*winkwink* ok let's do this..

let the pictures (mostly on food) tells you about my trip to Brunei..

when we arrived at the Jetty in Muara, we were 'received' by my grand-uncle (grandma's brother) and his daughter, so they brought us to have some lil-makan as alas perut. so this aunty said we shall go for 'kon lo mee' on the way home.. we said ok.. and we head off.. so she drove us to this housing area, where there was only one row of houses, big houses.. we were like wondering.. why are we going to this place.. and she said.. ' is where we going to have our kon lo mee, in the house.. ' chrisina and i were, 'HUH?!?!'

We arrived.. we were amazed, the house is huge lor.. the owner renovate the house in such that half is 'business center' half is home for them. his maids become his shop assistants.. haha..have a look at the house.. is big lor.. and summore.. HE OWNS A MERZ ler.. aduh.. SEE??? Sell Kon LO Mee in BRunei also can earn a Merz.. hahaha

so we went in.. we ate the mee..which is not bad.. one bowl for B$1.80.. got lotz of pork dishes lor.. but we were just too full.. we din really eat.. hehe.. dun convert.. convert ada mahal sikit.. but the owner is basically smart!!

then the next day, we went to this Le Apple, owns by my Grand-uncle's son. we went there to arrange for some cakes to give away during my grandma's 80th birthday in june. besides giving away the invitation cards, tat was also one of our purpose to brunei. the bakers and those who decorated the cakes are really good, really enjoyed looking at the finished decorated cakes. wanted to take more pictures..but macam not nice.. so i 'control' haha..

the cake testing session was wonderful, enjoyed every bit of it.. and the fellowship around the table.

THEN... AT LAST.. we went to ESCAPADE!!.. tat is the place i make sure i will visit whenever i'm in brunei.. too bad both my aunties dun really enjoy japanese food.. so.. we din order much.. but i enjoyed it soooooooo much. haha..

of coz he doesnt really know the road we have to say.. 'remember the place we used to cut our hair??' 'remember the chinese restaurant where you like the kon lo mee?' etc.. haha..

then he said 'ya' and he led the way..


he refused to talk to chris and me.. no matter how hard we tried.. he only talked to his father and grandmother.. even we played with him, he laughed with us, but he just DUN WAN TO TALK TO US.. pengsan... tat's y i said he is stubborn.. haha

I Serve a Risen Saviour...

sharing with you one of my favourite hymn..

I serve a risen Saviour, He's in the world today;
I know that He is living, Whatever men may say;
I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer,
And just the time I need Him, He's always near.

He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and He talks with me
Along life's narrow way.
He lives, He live, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives:
He lives within my heart.

In all the world around me, I see His loving care,
And tho my heart grows weary I never will despair;
I know that He is leading Thro' all the stormy blast,
The day of His appearing Will come at last.

Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian, Lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs To Jesus Christ the King!
The hope of all who seek Him, The help of all who find,
None other is so loving, So good and kind.

Good Friday

They were watching from a distance
And they could not take their eyes from You
You were bleeding, they were weeping
Faithful sisters, they had followed you
They did not understand, they could not see
They were mourning their loss
As the sky turned black, and the Earth turned red
At the foot of the cross

He was standing near your mother
They were so close, They could hear you sighing
All around them angry voices,
Pierced the darkness, And you were dying

But they would not leave, They lingered there
No matter the cost, They were staying
And they were praying, At the foot of the cross

Keep me near the cross, Near the cross
May I never stray so far
That I cannot see, What flowed down for me
At the foot of the cross

Now Im standing in your presence
And I cannot take my eyes from you
You have risen, Im forgiven,
Precious Saviour, oh I worship you
No Im not looking back, Ive heard your voice
And Im staying here, Ive made my choice
For now its real, now I kneel, At the foot of the cross

Good Friday

a day we were reminded that One who came and died. One who willing to take the pain, the sufferings, rejection, even the death, whose mind thinking none but US all... (just each and everyone of us).

Last night, Maundy Thursday Service, we were told that when Jesus went through all the sufferings, pain and rejections, His mind was thinking about us.
US = YOU n I,
if it is not for us, He wouldn't have gone through this path of sufferings,
if it is not the Love for Us, He wouldn't have come to this earth,
if it is not for Us ...
is all because HE LOVES US
HE CAME TO SAVE US because He knows there is no other way but dying for us for our sins

it is too painful to imagine, even to see the sufferings He went thru for us, but should we all close our eyes and 'pretend' that this never happen?? or should we ignore it or think that it is not "ME but you" it is not 'MY but your sins'.. many of us are living in ignorant about the fact that Jesus Died for Us. even some find it ridiculous.

is Good Friday good after all??
yes.. it is.. for it is on this day, we know we have hope and salvation.
for it is on this day, we may smile and be thankful.
for it is on this day, we know we have the Saviour, the God that who loves us.
for it is on this day, WE WORSHIP & PRAISE THE LORD.

therefore my friend, TURN to God, REPENT, ask for FORGIVENESS, BELIEVE & ACCEPT HIM as your personal Saviour and Lord
for Each of Us NEED Him

Lord, Thank You for Dying on Cross for me. for I find salvation and hope in You. Praise You Lord.
