Greatest Gift: Have a Blessed Christmas

Today is another day fill with love and I decided to pen it down to make it the closure post for year 2012. Two more days, all my stuff will be in the 40 footer container and this will be the the closure of my kitchen in Singapore. However, I anticipate the new beginning of my life in Australia with great hope and excitement than I can imaging. I have faith in God that whatever Jesus bring me in He will bring me through. Because of that, I'm so excited to see what future He have planned for me. If you ask me whether I will miss Singapore, the answer is a definitely yes. Singapore is the place where I build my family and career. Staying 14 years in this land, this is the place where I call it home. 

I baked the below jelly cheesecake sometime ago, using my previous recipe with Oreo biscuits and without strawberries :) 

And, I want to share the news about I received the cheque from Nuffnang! The first cash out since I start blogging!  It is so happy to share it will other blogger out there. I just change to become Nuffnang Glitterati member since July this year and as you know, I was busy shifting house and my posts was not as frequent as last time... and now because of relocation again, I won't be posting until everything settle down. Thank you Nuffnang for the advertisements. Thank you my blogger friends for always there when I come back to this place. 

Wish you all a Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year in advance! See you next year!
