Off On A New Adventure!

~ Posted on Friday, August 13, 2010 at 12:25 AM ~

Ladies and gentlemen!

I would like to announce that I'll be embarking on a new adventure (Ok, Ok, my personal project) one of this days, so I'm going to tone down the frequency of my blogging (currently is daily except Sundays).

But that doesn't mean I'm going to disappear altogether... I'm just going to be busier with my own project (no, no, not another blog... I know the last time I mentioned something about being involved in a personal project and the next thing you see is me coming up with my own domain and self hosted website! But for this round, nope, no new blog, so don't worry!)

You see, I've just purchased these 2 books:

This will be the first step towards my adventure into baking world!

I'm so freaking excited! And I'm only armed with this 2 books for now!

(Wait til I get the oven, then I'll be super excited! :P)

I know I have zero knowledge in baking (hence the books duh!) and I know I don't cook for adults much (I do cook for Ben's solids!) so I want to make this work! I've searched around on the Net for more info I can find on baking but there's so many conflicting and not to mention confusing information out there.

I want to know what type of ovens I should get, what are the essentials equipments, ingredients, yada yada yada...

So, these 2 books are going to help me (hopefully!)

Once we get around to purchasing the oven (advance thanks to hubby for the encouragement and sponsor! Hehehehe!), baking equipments and settle down for some easy peasy recipes, I'll blog more about my baking adventures.

Until then, it is back to normal blogging topics about Ben, our family, our life, whatever I came across...

I just wanted to keep you all in the loop about my new adventure!

Wish me luck!

Things You Can Do While Weighing Yourself...

~ Posted on Thursday, August 5, 2010 at 12:27 AM ~

  Raise your hands hoping you'll weigh less...

  Get mummy to play the Beatle's song...AGAIN!

Hands to your back & pout like a model...

Threaten to jump off the weighing scale...

Pointing to imaginary stuff...

Looking excited over imaginary stuff...

Stop mummy from taking your pics...

Sticking out your tongue...

Posing off your serious look...

Let mummy take picture of your pot belly...

Let's Pray!

~ Posted on Tuesday, August 3, 2010 at 3:16 PM ~

Ever since I started Ben on solids when he turned 6 months old, I make it a habit to say to him "Let's pray before we eat" which then progressed to "What do we do before we eat?" to which Ben will clasped his hands together with gestures of praying.

Our short and simple meal time prayers for Ben always goes like this:

"Thank you God, bless this food, Amen.".

Check out this video made of Ben showing how he prays when he was 13 months old.

(*Note: You can also click on either pictures below to view the video as well.)

I have had people telling me that we're brainwashing him into Christian beliefs by praying when he doesn't know what and why is it for.

Yes, maybe Ben is still too young to understand the concept and the need to pray and be thankful for things we are blessed with...

But I think exposing him to the idea of praying and giving thanks is a good start.

I find it good to spend a few moments to give thanks to God for the food we have on our table.

For being healthy and happy.

For being blessed with a good life.

What do you think?

Read: Luke 11:1-13 (NIV), Proverbs 15:8 (NIV), Matthew 21:22 (NIV)

P.s: Oh, and did I mentioned that on several occassions when we're in a hurry to eat, Ben actually looks at us and shows us his praying gestures?

That made us stop what we're doing and get down to praying and giving thanks immediately!
