Forsake me not

"Forsake me not, O LORD: O my God, be not far from me." Psalms 38:21 

'Forsake me not, O Lord,' now; and forsake me not at any moment of my life.

Forsake me not in my joys, lest they absorb my heart.

Forsake me not in my sorrows, lest I murmur against Thee.

Forsake me not in the day of my repentance, lest I lose the hope of pardon, and fall into despair;

and forsake me not in the day of my strongest faith, lest faith degenerate into presumption.

Forsake me not, for without Thee I am weak, but with Thee I am strong.

Forsake me not, for my path is dangerous, and full of snares, and I cannot do without Thy guidance.

-Charles Spurgeon

highlight of the week

started work last week and it was not too easy adjusting to the working hours and the new environment. nonetheless, i thank God for how He has sustained me! thank God for the lessons learnt and the very apt reminder given during YF. hai, esther, you are so nervous and so worried and so scared, and yet, you don't trust God! you have forgotten to "wait upon the Lord" to renew your strength.

its so true. i have failed to pray in the many moments that i am afraid. this, in spite of reminding JH during the week of Psa 56:3 "What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee." well, a new week is dawning, and this also means a fresh start. may we jiau together! im saying this to PP, JH and the many loved ones and YFers who struggle together with me in the Christian walk/faithful fight (tot of you, joan!).

let me try to count my blessings :) i was very glad to be in church today, and simply do nothing but worship God. Psalms 84:10  For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. after a week of busyness, fatigue and having to adapt to so many things, being in the house of God brought much peace to my heart, reminding me once again of who i am, and who God is.

another highlight of the week was...*drumroll*...haha, meeting up with E and E! on 120509, 1930H, the 4 Es embarked on a top secret operation, foraging for the best food in town! lol :)


well, PP and I heard about "The French Stall" and so we decided to explore the place together, lah. outcome? its was sedap, yummy, 太好吃了, おいしいですね!im sure E and E agrees, ya? :) great company with great food, that's pretty much one of the best combinations you can get :) and this one of the most sporting couples, ever ready with the most fantastical poses!


so hungry that their faces have slimmed down..


the place, a mix of vintage, old-school, retro and english inspired decor. i was saying that it was a little too random for me. a brick wall in the middle of nowhere (??!!)


the garlic bread smothered with loooooots of garlic and UGCS! UGCS - Unindentified Green Colour Stuff ^_^


the GIANT profiterole with ice cream! we strategically coordinated our set meal orders so we wld have 4 kinds of desserts ;) although the profiterole looks the most impressive, we thought that the souffle was the best! not too sweet and had the softest texture. eat it fast if you try it the next time! it seemed turn slightly bitter after while :)

the main courses were excellent. Mr. E loved the steak. he kept gushing about how fantastic it was, even while we were having the desserts. i had dory fish and PP had chicken leg. not many pictures because we were too busy devouring the food LOL :)


Mr. E preventing his jaw from dropping hee!


see how hilarious they are? :)

we had a great time with the two of you! thank you for the laughter you guys have brought to us in the midst of the busy week! LX, stay SANE! :)

here's the address: 544 Serangoon Road. the price is rather steep so we would recommend you visit this place on a "special occasion". the french stall does adopt a "no frills" policy, hence no aircon, reservations, or over-the-top services. as a result, the food is slightly more affordable. their website does offer directions if you do not drive :) the link can be found above~

recently, AHJIJAN has been following PP and i to our church, both for YF and church services. sometimes he's abit of a "gooseberry" (hehe!) but more often den not, its a joy to have him around :) somehow, over the years, ive seen him grow to become more mature and sensible, especially when he is with us! when we alight from the car, he opens the door for me! and he has learnt to offer others a share of his food :)

Joan, joanne and joshua may know about how he understood that i cannot stand his sweaty sticky clothes and he predicted that i would complain when i had to sit next to him yesterday in the car. lol...and i really did :P and u can see him squeezing himself towards the door so he would not contact me. what a sweet boy hee hee :)

this morning, this was what we found!

mummy's day!

haha, fruit party for the mummy who loves fruits and is always asking us to eat fruits :) :) and, to make it more exciting, there's chocolate fondue to go with it :)


check out the most glamourous tablecloth on earth ;)


mummy singing herself a happy mother's day song haha!


i like these cookies heh..

plus the sweet sister and her husband gave me a graduation gift + start work present! was such a pleasant surprise.. :) thanks, 姐!


ill be starting work tml! my first official and proper job. well, thank God for His provision, especially at a time like this. at first, i was pretty much hesitant and unsure.. is this God's will for me? after some pondering and discussion with some pple, like PP and JH (heh), i realise that it is indeed an answer to a prayer for a job that allows me to not work on sundays, to go YF, and to attend church camp.

may i remember this verse, which was what pointed me to making the final decision:

Deuteronomy 4:9  Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons;

Lord, may you help me to do what you want me to do, to be a beacon of light in where you have placed me, to do my best and minister to those that you send in the course of my work. actually, have alot of fears and worries, but as i have shared with my group on sat, im clinging on the promises in Psalm 23, that God will provide for all my physical, spiritual, relational and emotional needs!


Psalms 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

today, during pre-singspiration, i was brought to attention the last verse Praise the Saviour...

Then we shall be where we would be,

Then we shall be what we should be,

Things that are not now, nor could be,

Soon shall be our own.

How cryptic! but upon deeper thought, it is a fine description of Christ's soon return...

Luge away!






just before i start work (tml!) and in celebration of PP finishing his exams, we went to try out the luge at SENTOSA! it sure was a good and timely break, spending some quality time with each other, which we have not had for quite some time! i enjoyed the skyride, the beautiful scenery,the mild adrenaline rush from the luge, and most of all, the company la :) i was so thankful for dSLR to be able to take in some of the nice sights along the way!


light reflecting off the treetops


the multicoloured sunset

姐,did you know that we have appeared on newspaper before? haha, we're famous! LOL :) according to the journalist, he says: 6 岁的林恩慧林恩玮两姐妹,也是其中未来小画家。


this is such an unexpected and funny discovery. i was going thru our childhood photos, and i wanted to scan in this when i discovered the article underneath :)


anyways, something has been accomplished, and it surprisingly matches with what we were wearing 21 years ago! :)



i hope you like it! i literally bled while working on this :p  ive always feared that the sewing machine needle would one day go thru my finger and my fears came thru today :( but well, i truly enjoyed the process, sewing and thinking back on some of our memories (maybe that's how i poked my finger heehehe). thank God for a sister like you. sisters forever! haha!
