Dear LAURA VALENTINA,

As you celebrate your birthday this month, may God’s grace and peace be unto you always. It is our prayer that you will continue to grow in wisdom and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

We have selected a reading from Our Daily Bread which we pray will encourage you to draw near to God and saturate yourself with His Word everyday even as He adds days and years to your life.

Happy Birthday to my wonderful friend ever!

Though, I am in a far far faaarrr away land, nothing would stop me from celebrating your day! 🙂

I pray that your beautiful family will be an examplary of modern, simple, happy, godly family. I have never met someone who could pull out friendship and family at the same time. You set the bar so high that all others are falling behind. Keep being the “normal” one amongst us. And pray that this friendship would last than memory could ever do. Happy birthday. Or in danish, tillykke med fødselsdagen.  Love you! ❤

Cakery: TLJ + 12CC

Happy Bday Asha!

She turns 1 few days ago! And she had a wonderful bday looking by the cake she had. Yumm!!

According to her mum who is one of my bestfriends, this selection of TLJ cake is also quite dry. I think they need to do a real makeover to their cake recipe. Maybe recipe for bread is just not right for cake. Their presentation is really appealing though. So, at least they are doing right on something.

Cakery: RC versus TLJ

leave a comment »

These past couple of weeks, I had the chance to share some of God’s blessings by buying birthday cake, one of them for my very good friend 🙂

For her birthday, I refused to buy  just an ordinary cake. So, even though I knew she would not like any cake I bought, I still insisted to buy her a branded 4-star-hotel-quality cake. I bought her Strawberry Tart of The Ritz Carlton Hotel Jakarta with full hope that she might like it.

It tasted good. The crust was sweet and crunchy. The cream was soft and light. And the strawberries were fresh and delicious. It was not like any other tart that would make you feel full just by looking the cream. This was fresh and simply yummy. Or so I thought. She apparently she did not like it at all. She smiled and gratefully received it. She had a bite and gave the strawberries away and threw the rest of the cake in the trash in. Had I been sensitive, I would be very upset. But I knew it already, the chances were small for her to approve or even like the cake I bought.

Do you recognize me?

“Just like seasons, people change.”

Once I was asked. Describe yourself in one single word. Confidently, I answered: Loyal. Now, I am not sure that I am what I was. I was, once, very loyal to my friends. I sacrificed most of my comfort just to be with friends. I don’t think I am that kind of person anymore. I guess, it is true what they say, people change. I don’t know when, but I know now that I am a different person. I am a completely a different person when I make up my mind that sometimes strangers are better than friends.

tears. years. friends. smiles.

Count your life by smiles, not by tears. 

Count your age by friends, not by years.

Tears and years. Smiles and friends.  don’t only rhymes. They are perfect combination.

Tears and years.

Yup. Through these years, I have been facing so many tearing days, good and bad. Maybe it is because of my melancholy personality that I shed so much tears in life. But whatever the reason was, I am very much thankful for every tears I shed.

Most tears are created by painful time. Time where, you have to let go every tension and anger and bitterness through salty liquid from your body that God created exactly for that reason. Some says they are the ones who made my eyes even more soggy and small. They get a point there. But, I believe that God intended every tears I shed for a very good cause.  Read the rest of this entry »
