Eat, Drink and Be Merry


A lot of christian churches nowadays have bible study groups called cell. And they meet once a week, sometimes, to study bible & pray. Sometimes to get together in fellowship.

Our cell is called Agape. If you look up it's meaning in Dictionary.com, you'll find this:
1. Christianity Love as revealed in Jesus, seen as spiritual and selfless and a model for humanity. 2. Love that is spiritual, not sexual, in its nature.
3. Christianity In the early Christian Church, the love feast accompanied by Eucharistic celebration.

Then there is another more general definition for agape:
1. with the mouth wide open, as in wonder, surprise, or eagerness: We stood there agape at the splendor.
2. wide open: his mouth agape.

This is what our cell is. Our mouths are always agape, in awe and in anticipation for the food set on the table, at each of our weekly meetings. Everything else is secondary heheheh.


Our cell group's motto seems to be Eat, Drink & Be Merry. Hopefully our Pastor will never find out. Besides the spiritual food every Friday, physical food is also of equal importance to us.

Unbeknownst to our cell group members, they are actually victims (Guinea Pigs put to the test) in the hands of Nee's culinary experiments. MUAHAHAHAHA!

Nee's latest try outs for Christmas ~ Sticky Date Pudding with hot ButterScotch Sauce.


Like every one of our fellowship meetups, good Christians turn into wild animals when they see food.

And as usual, after feeding time, everyone would sit around the table and groan about overeating. We know. Excessive stuffing of oneself with food is bad for the body. And that is why each sinful feast is followed by repentant jogging sessions on Sunday mornings. Some of us will laboriously drive all the way to Stutong Park to run, while others like us will participate in our dreams.

Last Friday was supposed to be our last meetup for the year. Guess what? It wasn't. There's another bigger Christmas meal meetup on the 21st. Ngai Tee!
