August 13

Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name
- 1 Chronicles 29:13

The first question we should ask is simply this: what is the "therefore" there for? In other words, why are we to give thanks and praise to God's glorious name?

The answer is in the previous verse, and in David's declaration that everything we have comes from God:

"Both riches and honor come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all" (12).

No matter how hard you may have worked, or how well you may have done, everything that you are enjoying ultimately comes from God's gracious hand.

Do you have enough money to cover your expenses? Have you moved up the ladder at your workplace? Is your name becoming well-known as a success in certain circles? Then it is God who has given you the skills, the health, and the mind to flourish in this way.

On the other hand, perhaps you have not known worldly success, or been honored as of late. Know this: God, in his perfect wisdom and with his mighty hand, has dispensed to you exactly what is best for you, if you are his.

Therefore, no matter what your circumstance or situation, we thank you, God, and praise your glorious name!

Fat Spoon Cafe, Damansara Uptown

Always wanted to try this place out and finally did!
The whole place had a very homey, quirky vibe that makes you think of your kampung.

Sidetracking abit, my hometowns are Klang and Penang. As far as I remember, for me, every festival occasion that calls for family gatherings would be in Klang and very rarely, Penang. In comparison, the visits to Penang were definitely more rustic and what you would picture automatically when you hear "hometown". Ever since both my grandparents in Penang passed, my visits to Penang became even more sporadic.
So i have a very faint memory of what my grandparent's house looked like.

The setting in Fat Spoon definitely brought me back to my hometown/childhood. The mismatched chairs and tables, the classic metal table fans, and the lady bird books.
Ambiance wise, I really really like the place.

So they used the classic ladybird books as table menus which were somewhat questionable as to whether it was a waste to ruin such a dear book, but I cant say im not drawn to it. Truthfully, I feel guilty for liking the creativity behind it.

Wall menu for their specialties.

What I had, Spicy Beef Macaroni Soup.
Nothing special.

Sago Pudding with Salted Gula Melaka Ice Cream
This I like! 

Cempedak Spring Rolls with Vanilla Ice Cream.
This I LOVE. 

I would definitely come back here for the desserts, and probably not so much for the main meals.
Also heard that the coffee is good too, so got to try that out soon !

Sorry for the photo quality. Didnt take my camera out with me that day.
