New Year, New Home, New Start…

First of all, I want to wish you all a Happy New Year!  For those of you who’s been following my blog, you know I’ve just moved.  Some of you might be curious to know how my new home/kitchen looks like.  Well, I guess the kitchen is pretty much the center of the house.  So, if you take a good look at the kitchen, you pretty much can tell how the rest of the house is, relatively.  I just want to show you two pictures of my old kitchen as a comparison.

Kitchen of the previous condo

I like my old kitchen.  There are many counter top space.   Decent appliances, although nothing fancy, and for sure not top of the line products.  To me, as long as everything functions well and works fine, I’m satisfied.  You can say, I’m not a picky person.  The lower left hand corner from the picture above shows the corner of our dinning table.  That’s the dining area where we have every meal.  Although there’s a formal dining area adjacent to the kitchen, we used that space as a play area for the kids.

Are you ready to take a look at the new kitchen?  Just scroll down a bit after the drum roll please….

















Kitchen of the new home

This is my new kitchen right before we moved in.  Of course, I have filled up the counter top space with my junks by now!  :P   Is it lovely?  You can imagine how much I love my new kitchen!!!  The lower right hand corner from the above picture is our new dining area, with a pretty awesome view!  You can take a closer look of the kitchen area from the picture below.  I really love my new spacious and beautiful kitchen.  I feel so blessed everyday when I prepared each meal for my family in this gorgeous kitchen. 

Kitchen of the new home

Originally, I planned not to shared a not so good news with you on my post.  Especially, on the New Year post.  However, my heart is telling me otherwise.  More so, when I talk about food and kitchen.  Recently, my Grandmother (living overseas) has not been feeling so well because of a minor incident.  She was in the ICU for a while and now she’s back home with my aunt.  However, she couldn’t eat solid food and couldn’t even keep her food down.  There’s a constant pain in her stomach that keeps her from getting a good rest.  When I prepare delicious food for my family, it breaks my heart and makes me feel sad that my Grandmother couldn’t even keep water or soup down in her stomach.  Come to think of it, I’ve never prepared a meal or cook anything for my Grandmother!  When I was young, she’s always the one who cook and took care of us. After my family (parents and siblings) immigrated to the States, I don’t even see my Grandmother often.  I just hope my Grandmother will get better soon, real soon.  If I get the chance, I really want to prepare a nice meal for her to enjoy.  If you don’t mind, please keep her in your prayers and wish her a speedy recovery. 

On the brighter side, my Grandmother just became a Christian recently.  My family has been praying for that for many years.  That really is the best Christmas gift to us.  Hopefully, her faith will give her new hopes.  May she finds comfort and supports during this tough time. 
Thank you for your precious time and prayers.  Happy New Year again to you and your loved ones.  Wishing you all a joyful, healthy, and prosperous 2011!
