We were at my shop just now to send some of the computers there and to set them up. After we are done, we went to the Mamak shop 2 doors away to have our dinner cum supper. Hubby met an acquaintance and his family there. He is an itinerary pastor. While waiting for my food to arrive, I overheard their conversation. He was asking hubby where to buy the rane mixer. He is scouting for one for one of the church that he often preaches. Since hubby has experienced working full time in church for 7 years, he gave him some tips on where to buy it and how to look for a good mixer.

The fish are coming in but my net is not big enough to catch them. I need to get a bigger net or else, I'll lose the fish to other fisherman. But I do not have money now to buy a bigger net. I can wait a month or two to save from my income but in a month or two, someone else could have catch those fish. So, I resorted to borrowing from my dad. With his money, I am able to purchase 5 more used computers which is good enough for gaming. can't afford to buy new computers yet but the day will come when it can be done. :)

One of my customers plays the bagpipe. He often come to my shop to get me to look for bagpipe sheets to print then laminate. Once he asked me to help get him bagpipe sheet for wedding songs. That was a tough one because I am not familiar with bagpipe songs. He also plays the guitar and asked for my help to find guitar pedals are of high quality and affordable price. I showed him the rogue guitar pedals at guitar center. I am not sure whether he bought them or not.

Hubby prays for me every day before he leaves for work. One of his prayers is that God will bless the works of my hand. I believe. And His blessing is overflowing in my business. Almost every day I do not have enough gaming computers for my customers. I see more new faces. Sales has doubled up but I still do not have enough cash to add in more gaming computers. We are considering whether or not to borrow from my dad again.

The tools in my house are all kept in a cupboard where everything is chuck in there. To find a tool could mean taking everything out! I need to find 48" Draw slides so that I could arrange the tools neatly on another shelf which I can find any tool that I need to use easily. Then slide in back in so that everything is neat and tidy. No more screaming where did you put the saw? Where is the hammer? etc. Being a SAHM, tools come in handy when hubby is not around during the day if anything need fixing.

Praise God for His blessing, we are able to invest in 5 more used but with higher spec computers which Blackshot can be played on it. Since the boys know that my cc have Blackshot, more has been coming every day. And 5 computers aren't enough so we tried installing graphic card to 4 more computers and it works, Blackshot can be played on them. Now we have 9 computers with Blackshot. Even that, it is still not enough. Praying that God will continue to bless us and we will have the means to add more higher spec computers.

Scott Kay engagement rings from Reeds. My engagement ring is a simple, plain gold ring in which I have kept it somewhere ever since I got pregnant with my first child. Due to our financial condition at the time of my engagement, we cannot afford an expensive engagement ring. Anyway, I did not regret it coz it will still end up sitting in my jewelry box.

New Year is here and Chinese New Year is at the end of this month. I started a mini spring cleaning last week. Minimizing the amount of stuff in the store cum toy room. The room has always been neat and tidy until my youngest BIL did some spring cleaning in the dining hall and dumb everything into the storeroom. Yes, like really dumb...not arranging them neatly. Everything was all over the place and being stepped on when one need to look for their stuff. I did a lot of throwing. Most of them are toys which were given to my kids which have already broken. There were some hardware tool which we can't use because hubby was not around when I bought these. Wrong size! Anyway, the storeroom looks more pleasing to the eyes now and we found a few of our "lost" items.

In a cyber cafe business, we do not look forward for school holidays. Most people thought that we will have lots of gamers during the school holiday but they are wrong. During school holidays, they do not have pocket money for them to spend and also no homework or assignments to print. There goes our sales. Unfortunately, December is also a month where we spend a lot. Birthdays, family vacation, Christmas and back to school preparation. As of today, we are totally broke. Looking forward to next year for more blessings from Above. :)

The year is coming to an end and we are very excited to experience again God's promises being fulfilled in our life. We are holding on to God's promises and I believe in due time, we will have the means to send one of our sons to learn the violin. Then, I will have the opportunity to see how excellent zaret violin shoulder rest is. Both my eldest girls are learning the piano for more than a year now. In the beginning we thought it would not be possible based on our monthly income. But praise God, He has provided the money to pay for the fees till today and He will continue to provide as we continue to put our trust in Him.
