I never imagined myself in the kitchen cooking some human dish ever in my life. My mom never let me stepped into the kitchen before when she could still cook. That is why I feel stupid when I was still in Dubai 2 years ago, I and my cousin bought some steaks, I told her I am going to make a butter steak. So she let me do my thing in the kitchen and yeah it turned out to be like a patient's bland diet meal in the hospital. She was laughing at me because she said I had to marinade it first before cooking it. WHAT ON EARTH IS MARINADE? Well yeah, I didn't know it and I admit it. But now I know it, I even know now how to do it. My mom has been sick, my cousin who used to cook for me is now living in the US, and my dad? He just know how to open canned goods, fry and eat. I have no choice but to learn and yes, I learned with the help of Mr. Google (hahaha). When I started cooking since December last year, my dad has been the judge. It's funny because it seems like God heard me. I asked him to give me knowledge and guide me in cooking that I wanted to do it for my family and for my husband and kids and their kids in the near future. My mom always tell me, "You should learn how to cook so that your husband to be won't leave you." I even pray before I start doing my thing in the kitchen. I write every dish I cook, so it will be easy for me to do it next time because I have short term memory. What I learned is maybe the first attempt was a mess but don't lose hope to take risk again. Like what the saying says, "Try and try until you succeed!" So far my family and friends haven't said anything bad about my cooking skills. It is not because they love me, they are straight forward people and sometimes harsh. Trust me! XD
Here are some of the dishes I cooked since I started...
This is the dish I made today (Pineapple Chicken) and my family loved it,
especially my dad. Hence, I passed!
No lies! XD
I made these Gelatin too for dessert. YUMMY!!!
(Pandan and Strawberry Flavors)
I have been loyal to the love of my life ever since. I am waiting and will still be waiting for him. Everyday God never fail to show me that the man He made for me is worth waiting for. I do not want to settle on anything less He designed for me, I know He would give me what I need not what I want. I trust Him so I am patiently waiting.
"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
I am too far to be a saint because I know that I am a sinner. I do not deserve God's love but I would love to get closer to Him. I do not want to waste my time just a single woman but I want to be His servant while waiting for the man He made just right for me.
"A woman's heart should be so lost in God that a man must seek Him in order to find her."
"A capable, intelligent, and virtuous woman—who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls."
Thank you so much Sis Gens!!!

So I highlighted one of my favorite verses in the Bible.
♥ ♥ ♥
"Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud; love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs; love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth. Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail. Love is eternal."

I don't usually celebrate my birthday but because of me (02/15/89) and my cousin's birthday (02/17/94) are just on the same month. We decided to celebrate it together today and it is her 18th birthday so I had to make it more special. I realized that I think I should celebrate my birthday every year because this is the day that God gave me this life. I am so thankful that I am still in this world for 24 years. (^_^)
"I find myself being proud when I say, I could have been born in '1945 but the truth is I got here right on time and I thank God for every day of my life. It suits me just right. And lovely 1989, that's the year that I come from and I wouldn't wanna trade it for another time."
My faith in Him was tested again today. My auntie was knocking on my bedroom door at around 1 am. She said my dad needs help. So, I and my cousin rushed into my parents bedroom to check my dad. He was so weak, cold, having blurry vision and confused. He told me to stay beside him. So I took the Blood Glucose Kit and check his blood and it was so low. He is diabetic, but it was the first time he got super confused. I made him a glass of orange juice and gave him a piece of candy and he fell asleep. My mom was shaking because of what happened to my dad, so I and my cousin were looking after them until this morning. My dad has been thinking a lot lately, he was even asking God why is this happening to our family, but I told him that we both have to be strong for mom and we have no right to question God because we all have a cross to carry in this life and we are still blessed because we are still whole and complete. I know God won't give us something we cannot take because that is what He promised.
"Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him."
