Sun and Moon

This was my view on my way to the “mall” (it’s more of like a grocery) and back.

 

It’s a quiet place except for the mating birds and insects and dogs barking in the distance.  I said to myself, “This place is beautiful…” but then it would even be more beautiful if all of my loved ones are here.  But then if all my loved ones are here, living in one community, then this must be HEAVEN.  Because that’s what heaven is like–living in a community with GOD and all our loved ones.

Anyway, I went to the grocery store because the chicken I bought the other day was still frozen and I wanted to eat meat and so I decided to just buy new chicken.  Lazy @**! 🙂

On my way back to the unit, this was my view.

 

I could see our unit from here.  The moon was already up although it was a little short of 16 minutes from sunset.  It’s spring that’s why. The mountain was seen from anywhere in this place, reminding me of where I am.  This place is really beautiful–this part that is. 🙂

Nasi

There’s Noodle Bento on West and they serve very nice Malaysian food. They don’t have Hainanese Chicken though. Oh well, I went there yesterday and bought this.

I think this is called Seafood Nasi. They give a big serving. I ate this for yesterday’s lunch and today’s breakfast. 🙂

It should be my goal to try to eat everything on their menu during my whole stay here in this side of NSW.

God has been good to me. Bits and pieces of niceness from people I don’t expect to be kind to me make me think of God’s work in my life. Thank You God.

Convictions and rebuke are God’s discipline. Because He loves me. Like a father disciplining his daughter simply because he loves her.

I am no wiser than I think I am. I just have to obey God. Godly counsel from other people helps. Thank You Lord.

Scrap

Scrap. But even if it is a scrap, it’s still a treasure for me. Limited for now. But I try to enjoy it as much as I can.

I would often walk here during my day off…yes under the heat of the sun…see my shadow? 🙂

Notice the mountain that serves as a border. What’s on the other side?

Town proper at 5pm. Almost all stores are already closed.

Rugby Park near our area. Rugby? Is that where the solvent boys have their sessions? Hehe…

On my way back to the apartment.

The owner of this lawn/grass walks barefoot here. Seems logical because I feel guilty stepping on this very green very pretty grass. 🙂

My favorite west. According to some, it is dangerous here. So I have to leave before it gets dark.

I also like the Mckers (not sure about the spelling but that is how people call Mcdo here) at west. Date with God.

Some revelations from God that brought tears to my eyes:

God has put me here to set me apart. For whatever His purpose is. He is not finished with me yet.

Community

Yesterday, although it was freezing, I attended the Stress Less Activity at the Bicentennial Park.  I could not stay longer because it was really cold and I only have 2 layers on.  But I like how this community really tries to have all these activities.  They also served free food, massages, and other fun activities.  If it were warmer, I guess more people would come by.

 

I got fascinated by these ducks swimming in this pond. 🙂  I was trying to see their feet.  Grace under pressure.  Maybe I could learn something from them. 🙂

 

Amateur photo 🙂  I just want to capture some activities that went through that day. 🙂

Koorong

In the Philippines, my favorite Christian bookstore is OMF.  I would go to Greenbelt 1 just to immerse myself in Christian books/devotionals there at OMF.  So imagine how happy I have felt when Z led us to Koorong Tamworth.  I feel like I’m in heaven then. Hehe…:)

I bought this devotional bible there in New Century Version (NCV).  I thought I would find it hard to understand.  But this is one of the more understandable versions of the bible.  I am glad I bought this.  🙂

I also tried this Kebab Stall in the Centrepoint Shopping Center in town.  I wanted something spicy so I decided to eat kebab with yogurt and garlic sauce.  It’s not as spicy as I think it would be but it’s okay and not messy to eat 🙂  They also give good enough amount of beef.  Well, they should for it costs around 9 bucks 🙂

 

After going to town, I waited for my housemate so we could go to the supermarket for our food.  She’s into health stuff now and I would often tell her which is healthy and not.  I have been planning to go back to eating healthy and becoming a sort of vegetarian but I’m still trying to overcome factors that hinder this endeavour. 🙂  Anyway, I bought some healthy stuff like choco milk fortified with Calcium, oats, cornflakes, biscuits instead of chips.  Improving right?!  One step at a time. 🙂  I noticed also that my stomach is not that upset anymore. 🙂  I owe it to this healthy food. 🙂  Hmmm I need a food menu. Have a great day everyone! 🙂
