thirsty? less in the physical sense, but the spiritual sense. many times in life, we crave for things. we long for material things to make us happy, memorable times to cause us to smile, special events to look forward too, even yummy food to satisfy our cravings. how happy do these things really make us? how much of our thirst do they quench?

i find im like that sometimes. not contented, not happy, searching, yearning for something, but what?

Psa 63: 1 says "O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; "

that's when it dawned on me that nothing, absolutely nothing on this earth can fully satisfy me. it is all vanity, as Solomon says in Ecclesiastes. only when i learn to find my contentment in Christ and seek Him first, will He add the rest (Matt 6: 33) and give me the desires of my heart. (Psa 37:4).

saybons french food factory

for a little palate surprise, PP and i cut down on the amount of food catered in the buffet lunch and used the money saved to share some delectable french dessert! of course, it was from none other than our favourite Saybons!




coincidentally, their colours match our wedding theme TTM :)

Rounded Corners

check out their menu and you will see an array of crepes that are MUST-TRY. the wild mushroom soup and lobster bisque are personal favourites of ours! we liased with Daphane, who was super nice, friendly, and very pleasant to work with. she was able to identify our needs and flexible enough to accommodate what we wanted. for example, she advised us not to serve lobster bisque because some guests might have allergies, which was something we never thought of. basically, everything, including the set-up was handed over to them and boy, did they do a wonderful job! in spite of the long queues, the chefs worked extremely hard to feed everyone :) on top of that, they were so sweet to keep an extra container of wild mushroom soup for us to bring back to enjoy :)

holding hands

today marks 7 years we have held hands. while we do not have a special anniversary date (well now we do have a wedding anniversary date heh), this day is rather special to us as shared here.

2 months before we held hands, PP actually spoke to me about it. it was our desire to keep pure, for God.  And only God could have kept us together, till thus far.




Your Hand in Mine

(Written by PP)


Hands were held while we were small,

That their precious one will not fall.

But even when the fall did come,

*Sayangs* were given by dad and mum.


Hands were held by you and me,

As we walked down “that alley”.

How it happened I did not know,

But one thing’s sure, I’m not letting go.


Just as when you were a little child,

I’m holding yours with a loving smile.

Never a fall I dare not say,

But your hand in mine will surely stay.


Your hand in mine so long ago,

Yet our love is made to grow.

Not by any good in us,

But in God’s faithful hands we simply trust.


Two hands alone can never be;

To last for long there must be three.

Like the blissful couples passed,

Your hand in mine, with God we’ll last.

a word that carries so much meaning and weight. having been married for 7 months thereabouts, there have been many times when i have been forced to ponder on what does it mean to love? by the interpretations of the world, it means doing crazily romantic things, going to gorgeous places for dates, strong, heady passions... the list goes on...

today, i sat down to rethink (and am still thinking as i type this). what does God say about love? how do i love PP, the way God wants me too? what would it mean to say, "i love you"?

1 Corinthians 13: 4-7

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

a very good reminder for me, that love is a choice, and requires action. God, help me to love according to your standards, and to learn from your example of how you loved us and gave yourself for us.

new look



aah.. a new look for Flower in the Wilderness, which nicely sums up the things I would like to share with you. While "Amazing Grace" is one segment, honestly, everything in my life is by His grace and none can exist without the love of God, who sustains, keeps and blesses me. may everything in my life point you to Him, and show you that there is a God in this world who is very real to me and has saved me from a meaningless life destined for eternal death when i was dying in my sins. All glory goes to Him.
