A star was born in Paradise today!

We woke up early today, did our ablutions,prayed and cooked.
I prepared lamb curry with potatoes, coleslaw, kaseri(indian sweetmeat). Then, by mid-day, our sister Kate prepared couple of Philippines dishes and flan for dessert. After three in the afternoon, our brother prepared some African dishes.
We had some friends over and had a good time.
Gifts were exchanged and all of us were cheered for the day.

A blessed 'merry Christmas' to all!

Angels of Love

For the past week, many tragedies have struck various countries in the world. All due to greed,ego,evil and monstrous elements among humans.
Let the Angels of Love spread their wings towards shielding humans from further disasters towards 2009..

Paradise Sunday


The day has arrived smoothly for my heart and me to be united as man & wife. To be in love and in truth for lifetime and rejoice with blessings from family and friends and Grace from God.

The Prayer

Always start our day with the Lord's Prayer, and as Christians be blessed by our father in heaven.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory. for ever and ever.
Amen

Matthew 6:10-14
Our church have started observing October as a month of fasting and praying. Therefore, all of us have something to ask our father in heaven. Through fasting and praying, He will grant it for each of us. Amen.

LISTEN!

I was touched by this movie and the actors playing their roles beautifully.
The struggle and achievement lies in friendship,hope and faith of each and everyone of them.
Disappointment leads to failures and losers.

Celebration of Spring

One of the loveliest movies i have watched in many years. i love this particular song due to its melodious music beat. Listen and be mesmerized.................



Kehne ko jashn e bahara hain
(To say its like a celebration of Spring)
Ishq yeh dekh ke hairaan hai
(Love is amazed to see this all)

Phool se khushboo khafa khafa hain gulshan mein
(The flower is annoyed with its fragrance in the garden)
Chupa hain koi ranjh fiza ki chilman mein
(There is an unseen greif in the veil of surroundings)
Saare sehmay nazaare hain soye soye waqt ke dhaare hain
(The scene around is filled with silence, Time drifts into a sleep)
Aur dil mein khoyi khoyi si baatein hain
(Some lost thoughts remain in the heart)


Kehne ko jashn e bahara hain
(To say its like a celebration of Spring)
Ishq yeh dekh ke hairaan hai
( Love is amazed to see this all)
Phool se khushboo khafa khafa hain gulshan mein
(The flower is annoyed with its fragrance in the garden)
Chupa hain koi ranjh fiza ki chilman mein
(There is an unseen greif in the veil of surroundings)


Verse 1
Kaise kahein kya hain sitam
(How would one say whats the pain)
Sochte hain ab yeh hum Koi kaise kahe who hain ya nahi humare?
(I keep thinking about it now, that how would I know If she belongs to me or not?)
Karte to hai saath safar faasle hain fir bhi magar
(Though we journey together, yet there are some distances in between us)
Jaise milte nahi kisi dariya ke do kinare
(Just like how two banks of the river never meet)
Paas hai phir bhi paas nahi, Humko yeh ghum raas nahi
(We are so close yet so far, I cannot accept this despair at all)
Sheeshe ki ek deewar hai jaise darmiyaan
(Its like a wall of glass that divides us..)

Saare sehmay nazaare hain soye soye waqt ke dhaare hain
(The scene around is filled with silence, Time drifts into a sleep)

Aur dil mein khoyi khoyi si baatein hain
(Some lost thoughts remain in the heart)

Verse 2
Humne jo tha nagma suna, dil ne tha usko chuna
(The song that I had heard was chosen straight from the heart)
Yeh daastan hume waqt ne kaisi sunayee
(But time hummed a different tale for us)
Hum jo agar hai ghumgeen, who bhi udhar khush to nahi
(If I am sad in here, she is not at all happy there)
Mulaqato mein hai jaisi ghul si gayee tanhayee
(Loneliness has filled up our meeting)
Milke bhi hum milte nahi, Khilke bhi gul khilte nahi
(We meet but we don't unite, The flowers bloom but they don't blossom)
Aankho me hain bahaarey, dil mein Khiza.
(My eyes envision Spring, but my heart senses the Autumn)

Saare sehmay nazaare hain soye soye waqt ke dhaare hain
(The scene around is filled with silence, Time drifts into a sleep)
Aur dil mein khoyi khoyi si baatein hain
(Some lost thoughts remain in the heart)

I arrived from Singapore today. It was a short trip but interesting. Only managed to snap along our journey. As this is the first time we travelled via bus, the journey took approx 5 hours to reach our destination.
We stayed in Little India so to meet with friends at a nearby eateries.

what's next?
