Finally, I applied For A New One...

Finally, I renewed my passport today. Actually, I woke up too early just to get ready to go to the DFA office because my couple friends told me to go to the DFA office as early as possible because there would be lots of applicants.

At 5:30 in the morning, I was ready to go to the DFA (Department of foreign affair) office but my heart won't agreed what's in my thought. So, I waited until the breakfast served at 6:00 in the morning and I had my quickest breakfast ever because I wanted to be at the office asap, so, rode a taxi going to the office. To my dismayed, only one man standing outside the gate and I was scared to get our of the taxi because I was not really sure if it's safe to be standing along the road waiting for the time that the security guard would give the priority number. But the driver told me that it's okay to stand and wait because there were security inside and they could see me outside. Hmmm, you might say, I didn't trust God to take care of me, of course I do. He is my Great Protector but wisdom is very needed too...

Not long enough, there were a few people coming but still it's still too early. Well, the security guard arranged us according per transactions, like for renewal one line, to those who had appointments already another line and also to those who never had appointments yet just came for the first time,...Hmm,,, I'd rather say the first timer applicants While hearing some of the applicants that they came back because it's their appointment day to pass their documents both for renewal and just applied for the passport. I prayed silently and asking God for HIS favor that I would not be rescheduled for the submission of my documents as the others did. Speaking of the priority number, the security guard didn't give a priority number at all. I guess, they only give the priority numbers if there will be many applicants. Might be??? Or they might changed the procedure already.

Well, to make the long story short, the office opened on time. So, I gladly and prayerfully went inside that I would not come back for the submission of my document such as the xerox of my passport. And the person sitting next to me has an appointment even he came for a renewal of his passport. The more I prayed and trust God that I would not come back just to submit my document. Then, my name was called and I was happily and smiled to the in-charge and greeted her at the same time. She looked at and read the application form, xerox of my passport, and my passport itself, and she approved my application. for the renewal of my passport... PTL! Then, she told me to go to the other corner and have my picture taking, so I went.

Of course, after the picture taking, I paid, received the passport slip, and I'll be picking up my new electronic passport in fifteen working days from now. After the DFA office I went to the mall and hang around for awhile. Then, I went back to the hotel where I am staying and resting. And I've been so very thankful to God for everything.

The Electronic Passport

I phoned the DFA office today and I asked about my passport, if I could still use my non-electronic passport to travel beyond Asian continents. Though, it will expire in 2 years and 8 months from now.

Good thing that I never just assumed that I could still use my passport because the person who answered my call immediately advised me to get the electronic passport because it’s very important for me to do. Anyways, I still have plenty of time to renew my passport soon. So, hopefully, by next week, I will do renewing my passport and it will be released in 15 working days.

Actually, I wanted to do the renewal tomorrow but for some reasons I have to delay as provision arrives and also I have to prioritize the things that I have been working for a couple of days already. So, the most important comes first….. ^_^

Scenic Sunday 1

I am glad that I will be able to join on this mimi. Here's my first entry, I took this photo when I was at my director's house in Satun, Thailand. This is the school where I taught for a couple of years.

Actually, I was fascinated with the thick cloud and it seemed it's a tail of the building so I captured it.

I Couldn't Access

Last night, I wrote a post to one of my blogs. After I edited my post, I couldn’t access it again. So, I thought, might be the internet connection had problem. When I opened it again this morning, still the same thing happened. Then I confirmed it that there’s something wrong happened with my blog because my friend Janet left a massage on my facebook and telling me that she couldn’t access my blog.

I am hoping that I would be able to access my other blog soon. If not then I would be very sad because I wrote a lot on it. I guess, it’s time for me to write more posts on this blog too.

Hmmm, just now, I am thinking that might be my domain has expired already but I never received email from the webhost. I hope the problem of my Genuine Cuisine will be solved very soon.

Blessed than Before

Once again, I would like to share this beautiful devotional from the devotional online that I subscript for a several years already. Today's devotional God reminded me not to forget all the things that HE has done in my life, though I never forget to thank HIM in everything that He has done from the moment that He found and loved me unconditionally.

( 1 SAMUEL 12:24 *NKJV )

Dear Litlit,
In this busy world it is far too easy to forget all of the things that God has done for us. Often we take those blessings for granted, and sometimes we even forget tothank Him for them.


Therefore Litlit, never forget to thank Him for His great love, and all of the blessings that He has given to you! In fact, a great way to start each day is to spend two minutes counting all of your blessings, and then try to have only loving thoughts all day long. For when we do are hearts become merry and we are walking in God's Light, and that will make us feel even more blessed than before!

Also remember Litlit, when counting all of your blessings, to count the biggest blessing of them all, and that is having such a loving, caring Heavenly Father as we do! Amen!

All My Love & Prayers,
Pastor Allen

Looking for another company

It has been awhile that I never checked this blog. I will really try my best to update this blog as soon as possible.

I've been thinking what to write on this blog as of now, I've been focusing on my other blog. Actually, I have lots of experience I suppose to post on this blog due to the internet connection that I am having now, it's quite limited so I wasn't able to write much.

Speaking of internet connection, I will try to inquire the other company, if they'll can still install the cable thing. The advantages of having a cable internet connection is it's unlimited unlike the one that I've been using for a couple of weeks now. It's a bit expensive so that's the reason that I didn't surf on the net that much.

I hope that the company that I'll be inquiring they will still a cable internet connection.

Devotional Online

For a couple of years, I’ve subscribed the devotional online; the title of this devotional is “Good morning”

And today’s topic was so encouraging, it talks about Trusting God, the author expound that trusting God is to rely everything unto HIM even we could not see the result of our prayers yet but we should trust in HIS heart that in HIS time He will answer according to HIS time.

Once we trust everything unto the mighty hand of our Living God, we should not find a corner to hold our prayers back. Once we do that, we doubt on God’s faithfulness, and HIS power to do everything.

When we put our trust in God He will lead our ways. After all we live by faith not by sight. God reminded me to let not my heart be troubled, Trust in God and also Trust in Me.

Thank God for this morning devotional, instead of worrying I declares HIS Great faithfulness and claims HIS promises in every breath I take.

Pushed Through

The dinner date was finally pushed through on my last Monday in Satun. At first we chose Khupkhon restaurant but in last minute we decided to go to other restaurant which we like most.

While waiting for our food, we had wonderful conversations. We reached to the main point of our dinner date which is set a time for my two meet friends meet regularly for some studies, prayer, etc. I will continually pray for the success of their regular meetings that the enemy could not hinder what has been started.

And of course, we enjoyed our food; I ordered one of my favorite Thai food “ The Kruang Kaeng pla kapong” and I never expected that the cook put lots of chilies and it’s too spicy but I still ate though.

Actually, my friend was very emotional that time but I still managed not to be emotional in front of her and I was able to crack little jokes and we ended up laughing and the atmosphere was quite nice because there was no tears fell down.

At Cali Restaurant in Satun this restaurant is quite famous in town. Actually, the Malaysians who come to town they usually come to this restaurant.

Hight Light

My second trip to Taiping is a bit longer than the first I visited here a few weeks ago. The high light of my trip this time is to attend my friends’ son birthday. But before the birthday celebration, there were a few things my friends and I did.

A night of Lyle’s birthday my family friend and I went to Pizza hut and I ate as much as I can. Thank you Lyle for the birthday treats.

I am pretty sure that I'll be missing this very cuddly big, handsome and chubby boy.

Last Saturd ay, we had especial lunch, we went to Jesu’s sister’s husband and we had delicious food there then for dinner we went to Jesu’s uncles’ house and the food they served were really delicious unfortunately I ate little because I ate a lot on Lyle’s birthday celebration

Above all, I’m having great time with my family friends. I truly thank God for allowing me to visit twice this month.

We went to Taiping museum and I saw a couple of interesting things there though the museum is not completely done yet but still it’s quite interesting to go there.

Actually, I took lots of pictures when we visited the Museum unfortunately, it’s in my mobile phones and the USB cords are in my traveling bag and I don’t want to dig them because I nicely arranged the stuff in my bag already. But I’ll try to post some pictures when I have a chance when I arrive home.

Last week, I planned to have dinner with my co worker and my other friend but it was postpone due to the reason that my Thai friend was not available last night. And we reschedule our dinner date by Monday night. I hope and pray that there will no hindrances on this day.

The purpose of our dinner date is to set time that my co worker and my friend will be able to plan a schedule when to meet for Bible reading, etc.

I’ll continue to pray for this meeting, and this will not be an ordinary meeting I know the enemy is trying to hinder and in Christ name the meeting will be done in due time and that will be on Monday night.
