Jerusalem – Capital of Israel Controversy!

13 Dec 2017 – Back To Normal, More Or Less

Fri: a quick trip to Mustafa to buy Norwegian salmon&dill for gravlaks. Had a nice hot herbal chicken soup@SoupParadise/CitySquareMall. Quite a decent deal with 2pieces of drumsticks.

Concerns over US president Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel – this is going to spark and start off much unrest in the world 🙁 Pix downloaded.

The Battle of Armageddon – A Prophetic View. Jerusalem will be reestablished as the capital city of the Israelites (Zechariah 1:16–17; 2:12; 12:6; 3 Nephi 20:46). (I-9) Armageddon: The End or the Beginning?

In memory of John Lennon’s (1940-1980).

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace..

Sat: completed the course of antiB. Oh dear! a car has crashed into my regular flower stall@MarineTerrace wet-market. Fate has it that I was just across the road putting the seasonal greetings snail-mail into the mailbox.

Sun: a lousy Sat night-sleep and woke with a stiff neck – seems like inflamed or muscles spasm, took 2Panodols and feeling better, tkx for medical advise from Ivy. Got a delivery service GoGoVanS$20 to deliver gravlaks to Les&Ivy – apologies for missing the dinner but still on the mend and need to rest. Good to learn that there is such a fast and efficient delivery service.

Mon: congratulations to my beautiful niece, Dika – a NY Times Fellow at NYU, who won the Bronx Writers’ Center Chapter.

Still good news even-though it is old news (according to Dike),  but only just got the info from Lock today.

Tue: Design Centre for Bonjour WOHAbeing – neat designs.

Tkx Aileen for lunch@Tanuki Raw Restaurant & Bar***healthy and tasty Tofu Rice Bowl set-lunch, and enough to doggy-bag for another meal.

Wed: Happy Bday Ingrid. More of less back to normal after 12days of resting. @PlazaSIN, saw this line and decided to check out the fuss. Was allowed to purchase a max of 5small packages – verdict only after tasting them and that will be next week. Fish-skin was sold-out by the time it was my turn!! Appetite not up to par yet and will not taste until there are others to help eat it!

Irvins started off with humble roots, with founder Irvin Gunawan coming up with the idea to coat potato chips with salted egg yolk sauce back in 2014. The hype for salted egg yolk everything might have died down, but Irvins Salted Egg Yolk Chips are still drawing the crowds.


To family&friends observing Hanukkah – the Jewish eight-day, wintertime festival of lights, celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers and foods.

St Lucia’s Day –  today celebrated thru’out the Scandinavian countries (more Sweden!). Originated in Italy, St Lucia, whose name comes from the Latin lux=light, links with this element and with the days growing longer after the Winter solstice. St Lucia is the patron saint of the city of Syracuse (Sicily).
