Celebrating The Golden Jubilee With A Big Bang!

Singapore turns 50 today and this year, we are celebrating the golden jubilee with a big bang!

SG50 Golden Jubilee

Singapore turns 50 this year and my family is endowed with many tidings of great joy!
First grandchild on the way… Ryan & Val bought their first property… Vanessa is now a photo editor!
And I’m featured as a cover girl in #ThrowbackThursday in Buro 24/7.

Dinner @ Valerie's

Remember Butter?
She’s grown up and recently moved into her new home.

According to the *Big Bang model, the universe expanded from an extremely dense and hot state and continues to expand today. So is my grandson (although conceived from a different big bang, lol…) who’s due in August! I am so blessed indeed to have lived to this day to witness my baby becoming a mother, herself. I am scared and excited at the same time! There’s so much to prepare before Joseph arrives 🙂

In the bible, Joseph was sold by his brothers into slavery and later rose to become a supreme power in Egypt.

The name Joseph is a Hebrew name יוֹסֵף (Yosef) and the meaning of the name Joseph is “May Jehovah add/give increase” or simply “he will add”.

My cup runneth over!

There was request for this prawn recipe but like I said in previous posts, Valerie cooks without recipe so there’s no exact measurements.

*”As a description of the origin of the universe, the Big Bang has significant bearing on religion and philosophy. As a result, it has become one of the liveliest areas in the discourse between science and religion. Some believe the Big Bang implies a creator, and some see its mention in their holy books, while others argue that Big Bang cosmology makes the notion of a creator superfluous.” – Wikipedia
