It has been quite a while since my hubby and I travelled for holiday. So this time, I decided to go holiday on his birthday, making it a special one for him. We couldn’t really decide on a country as we don’t want to spend so much for a short trip, so it has to be neighbouring country. He wanted to go Taiwan actually but all he can think of is to see the bicycles in Taiwan. I definitely say no to that, I don’t wish to pack a big bicycle as our extended luggage back home to Singapore. So I suggested Macau, a place where most people might not think of probably as a tourism spot except for casinos. Neither of us gamble, so we are definitely there to enjoy and therefore hopping that most people are in the casinos and we can be out enjoying.
One of my purpose to go Macau is to watch the musical - 水舞間
Finally, this week Raelyn can turn over quite smoothly already. Last week, she is still struggling with 1 hand always trapped underneath her body. This week, she can turn left and right. That means more movements now and also to monitor her more closely. Thought, she can’t crawl yet only to turn 360 degrees instead. So funny. I will be missing her since I am flying to Macau this thursday.
Today we did another ride at Punggol Park. This time, it was with LCSG (Love Cycling SG) FaceBook group. There were about 20-30 people or so turning up for it. Total distance was about 29.3km. In between, we stopped over for roti prata, as always like their motto - ERP (Eat, Ride, Photo).
Hehe, our cute Raelyn would reached out her hands yesterday when her Godpa stretched out his hands to carry her, how nice. Now she knew to react to us and to give the necessary actions. The new Godpa despite carrying Raelyn still walk very fast and showing Raelyn all the various window display items to her enthusiastically. She seems also to know to pick out items that she liked. My sister said at 5 months, she is starting to be able to tell colours apart, so we are all wondering what colour will Raelyn like in time to come. Hmm…
See here, a rare photo of my hubby carrying Raelyn and also both are in so matching clothing. 1 is in bright pink and another in bright green colour.
So far I will say God is good to me. My weekend now normally is split to Sat, spending time with hubby. Sun to spend time with Raelyn and family, so busy huh. Am I happy? Yes, I do. However, it also makes me wonder, what happened if I am pregnant at this time again. I was reminded by the verse yesterday in church service.
Psalm 37:4 (NIV) Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
An example that Pastor quoted was when a father lifted his son up in the air. What is always so amazing is the son will smile happily, how about the father’s reaction? He, himself is being delighted. We are happy and so will our Father be. Finding happiness in our daily life and be contented with what we have, sound easy, however we always wants more and make ourself unhappy. How’s true…
Poor Raelyn, I am wondering is she entertaining us or the other way round. See her sleepy look. We went to have dinner at City Square Mall last sunday. At the same time to check out the Toy”R”Us to buy her more toys to develop her motor skills. Surprising, there is also a Babies”R”Us, just nice for babies. Also, she seems to like trying to tear toys apart and get angry over it if she can’t. So I guess we need more toys for her in case the toys become “Angry toys”.
First head this from another carecell member. I find it interesting and re-post it here.
My Heavenly father, as I enter this workplace I bring your presence with me. I speak your peace, your grace, your mercy, and your perfect order in this office. I acknowledge your power over all that will be spoken, thought, decided, and done within these walls.
Lord, I thank you for the gifts you have blessed me with. I commit to using them responsibly in your honor. Give me a fresh supply of strength to do my job. Anoint my projects, ideas, and energy so that even my smallest accomplishment may bring you glory.
Lord, when I am confused guide me. When I am burned out infuse me with the light of the Holy Spirit. May the work that I do and the way I do it bring faith, joy, and a smile to all that I come in contact with today.
Just to share that I have recently bought this 2 DVDs. 1 is the DVD version and another is the Blueray DVD. It first caught my attention because of an emailer sent to me stating that the show is on History channel. However, I didn’t manage to see the show over the TV but through other means. Despite that, I still wanted to buy the DVD to see it again. Through the show, it increased my interest to read the bible more often. I suppose that is a good sign, well, anyone wants to borrow it? Hehe
