Crab! You Butter Believe It!

Together with my best friend (and thus best man), his wife and Kris, we went down to a spot recommended by him to try out some crabs. Turned out to be quite a delectable feast costing a grand total of SGD$120+.

No regrets on the terribly sinful butter crab. Next time, we'll just cut to the chase and ignore all other cooking styles.

Take Your Cue

Lights, Camera, Wedding! Kris and I took one full day to plan out what would take place on the actual day, doing things on cue cards and sequencing them like a storyboard.

Pepper Lunch at Takashimaya

Opened only about a month ago, this place has interesting trays that allow you to place them side-by-side and still have a central space for the sauces. (Not shown in the video)

Our First Home Appliance

Kris is really keen on baking and stuff and so we shopped around for a good deal and found this electric oven for SGD$199 at Courts. We decided to test it by making durian puffs. Both of us took a half-day leave on friday and bought durians at Bugis, near her workplace before heading to my place for the test. It's our first time baking puffs.

After making a few batches, I sent some over to my grandma and my uncle's family that lives next to her. Kris took some back for her family. Seems like they liked it!

(Kris hates the durian smell but she knows I really like durian, so it was really really nice of her to propose we try this. *hugs*)

Househunting - Grandma House Survey

Due to a racial quota limit, we're not able to pick a new home at Punggol, which is our only reasonable choice for a new place to call home. So in the meantime, while we wait for openings in either resale flats or new HDB offerings, we're going to be putting up at my Grandma's. It's really quite a nice house too.

We spent some time measuring the room so that we can paint the walls as well as install new curtains.

Meng How's Baptism

Here's welcoming a new brother to the family! Meng How received the baptism of the Holy Spirit during the recent Come Encounter Jesus 2005 and tarried no longer than a week after to get water baptised.

For it is written in Acts 2:38 "Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."

There was a huge party happening then, and we were part of it. (Luke 15:10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.)

Just got a cheap haircut at a new barbershop just a few metres away from where I live. It's normally at $10 but they have an offer now since they are newly opened.
