what's happening in the quiet town of anchorvale?
a bigass carpark style proposal!
That aside, I got all my results back, and I did mighty fine indeed! It was the most challenging school term from day one right until the very last day of exams, and I knew I just couldn’t pull through on my own. So I prayed “I know it’s going to take a miracle for me to do well this term. But You’ve promised good, so I’m going to just try my best and rest knowing that you’ve got it all covered.” Wow. Jesus got it covered and it was a miracle indeed, it’s amazing amazing amazing! I was left speechless looking at the transcript, unable to justify the grades at all. Of course it’s unjustifiable - it’s called undeserved and unmerited grace and favour. =)

we're on the good food adventure trail!
this is not in response to the latest mediacorp drama *eww*
the queen and her menu
achar and sambal chilli
meatball soup ($12)
we ordered fish maw soup but they got our order wrong and came with some meatball soup with topshell. the soup was light and refreshing, i liked it very much though i think it's a little too pricey. the sambal petai (aka smelly beans!) is a famous peranakan dish. not everyone will appreciate it as the beans supposedly have a bitter aftertaste, though i didn't taste any bitterness and i LOVED the sambal to bits. this was my favourite dish of the evening hands down.
ngoh hiong ($8)
my mum orders ngoh hiong everywhere she goes, and she was pretty impressed by the ones sold here. i think the fact that they used really fresh ingredients made it a winner. the egg omelette was normal though the seafood used was really fresh too.
seafood egg omelette ($6)
babi pongteh ($8)
i ordered the babi pongteh because the peranakans do this dish magically. the gravy is like oooh-la-la! my parents really liked this dish too. my only gripe was that the meat could be a little more tender and i prefer the one at chilli padi's nonya buffet better.
the chendol is s.u.p.e.r.b. even i don't drink chendol much and i know on first sip that this is good stuff. it's also got the ten thumbs up from my dad who's a chendol fan. he claims that it's exactly the same as the one he had when he was a child and that they don't sell chendol like this outside nowadays. i think it's because they use gula melaka instead of cane sugar, which made it extremely flavourful without the sickening sweetness chendol often has.
charming chendol ($3.50)
the bill came up to $55 in all for the three of us, which i thought was pretty worth it except maybe for the soup. we had a blessed evening together, and seeing the satisfied looks on the two chews' faces made it money absolutely well spent. =)

How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood
His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace
The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, Who called me here below
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine

Not the woman that I’m trying to make you be
Not the woman that I hope you’d become
If I did,
I wouldn’t be up there waiting for you
I would be letting you go"

Imagine being a poor widow, a stranger in the land and holding one of the lowliest jobs in society. That was Ruth’s situation, so it would have been easy for her to feel vulnerable and defenseless. But because she trusted the Lord (Ruth 1:16), He placed her under Boaz’s protection.
Boaz, the owner of the field she worked in, commanded his young men saying, “Let her glean even among the sheaves, and do not reproach her.” (Ruth 2:15) What he was saying to his men was this: “She might be a gleaner, but because I care for her, treat her with respect and make sure she is not put to shame.”
Boaz is a picture of our Lord Jesus. If you are feeling vulnerable and defenseless right now, imagine Jesus commanding His angels, “Watch over this one who belongs to Me. Make sure he is treated with respect and not put to shame because he is someone I love and someone whom I died for.”
God’s Word tells us that if God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31) No one who has set himself against us can prevail because when God is for us, His protection is upon us. That is why I have never answered any of the poison email messages which I have received in the course of my ministry.
My attitude is this: Jesus is my defense. If He does not defend me, it means that there are things in my life that are not to be defended, and I would be glad to find out about them now rather than later. On the other hand, because I take the Lord as my defense, and He defends me, what can those who are against me do to me?
When you defend yourself, you have only your two hands and your own human resources. But when you let Jesus take up your defense, He defends you with His nail-pierced hands and His legions of angels! The results will be amazing.
Beloved, the Lord is your defense and refuge. Trust Him to defend and protect you!
