Bethlehem House is looking for 10 sets of 2nd hand (still in good condition) laptops / netbooks for the children to use. These laptops are used primarily for word processing and web surfing purposes.

If you have an additional laptop / netbook that you would like to bless the children with, or if you know of someone who would be willing to do, please let us know.

You may email us at or drop us a comment here. 🙂

Lovely theme parties from here

I opened the letterbox tonight…and found, amidst the stack of the usual bills and stuff, a nondescript looking envelope.

Curious, I opened it and saw this.

It brought an immediate smile to my face as I looked at the hand-drawn and coloured picture of Doraemon and Da-Xiong. But I had no idea still who it was from.

When I turned the card over and saw what was written inside, I realized that the card was created for lavendernotes by the kids from Term Fun Home. It was their way of saying “thank-you” to lavendernotes for the love they received through a very generous donor who heard about this newly set up Children Home in Chiangmai.

Such a sweet and heart warming gesture from these kids – and we’ve not even met them before.Thank You, God, for a lovely surprise to lift the spirits and encouragement to continue in the cause of lavendernotes.

It was a busy week leading up to SuperPowerKids tea talk #2 on Primary Success in Life Examination. Organized by the Family Life Ministry of St. James’ Church, the talk was catered for parents whose children are in Primary 6 and preparing for their year-end PSLE examination.

We had an amazing time with the old school theme that we came up with. And an even more amazing time watching the participants being delighted with the table layout, and especially the kachang puteh. Looks like many out there appreciate the return of old, familiar favourites which bring back lots of heart-warming thoughts with regards to our childhood lives.

Here are some photos of the tea talk. Enjoy. 🙂

…as the work week draws to a close. Have a splendid weekend and make a difference…somehow, somewhere. There’s always a place for differences to be made.

I woke up this morning with the absolute resolution to start on preparation for SPK Tea Talk #2. I packed and re-packed most of the necessary stuff and lugged it from my home to work.

From the moment I plugged in my laptop, and started work on the tea talk, I nary stopped for a break, except for lunch with two lovely ladies at Great World City (plus a gorgeously delicious bag of Garrett’s Chicago Mix..woot!). By the way, if you’ve never ever eaten Garrett’s popcorn before – you have to try it! Especially the Chicago Mix. It’s the best popcorn ever – caramel and cheese popcorn together in the same bag. Heavens. Anyway, I digress. So, here’s what I have to show for the day:

In-line with the tea talk’s focus on “PSLE”, we decided to go old school with this Sunday’s tea. See those cones in the backdrop? It’s for kacang puteh, an old movie favourite. Honey joys will be another old school simple delight on the table this Sunday, together with a few other noshes to tickle the taste buds.

Speaking of tickling, have you ever been tickled by either your own hair or someone else’s? It’s super irritating isn’t it? But anyhow, that’s not the point. The thing is…in my enthusiasm to cut into circles all my cupcake tags, I cut off a chunk of my own hair. Yep…you read it right – I cut off a chunk of my own hair. I was happily snipping away when I saw a few strands of hair on my table. I picked it up, feeling perplexed and saw to my horror that it was not a few strands, but a chunk! Thank God the damage was not great – I guess that’s the perk of having curly hair – you can’t really tell whether it’s supposed to be long or short. So, I survived, and here are the cupcake tags, a testimony of my hair-raising (or losing) experience.

Am really excited about this Sunday’s tea talk. Meanwhile, it’s preparation and more preparation work. Have a great week wherever you are, whatever you’re doing and may you find true joy and satisfaction always.

As SPK tea talk #2 draws nearer, so does our interest for table settings increases. Here’s a very doable, lovely idea from this amazingly awesome website.

We’re already in the midst of planning for SPK Tea Talk #2 “Primary Success in Life Examination” on 22nd May. Amongst the many ideas that we have, one definite item that we’re definitely putting forth on the tea table is this…

We’re also thinking of bringing back an old-school delight, Honey Joys, and maybe The Almost Famous Cookies again…but we shall see.

BTW, if you’re wondering that the SPK Tea Talk #2 is all about, this talk is specially catered for parents with kids in upper primary. Here’s a small write-up on it.

The primary 6 PSLE is deemed by parents as one of, if not the most, important examinations in Singapore. Anything that can help the child score higher in PSLE is of huge economic value.

Parents with children in primary school are invited to explire something candid and honest with Lan Chin on 22nd May, and to help their children towards a more rewarding PSLE.

You will bring home more than what you asked for!

This talk can take only 30 people max, so if you’re keen, do contact SHEENA GOH at +65 6469 0715 or email 

Meanwhile, enjoy your weekend, and will you please excuse us as we take a bite out of a delish Red Velvet cupcake…

 We did our first delivery last night and the 2nd this morning to two lovely ladies who ordered The Almost Famous Cookies and Brown Cow on the Rocky Road Brownie from us.

There is a certain sense of absolute satisfaction to know that the munchies are going out to people who really love sweets and to know that the children of Bethlehem House are being blessed by the purchases of these two ladies.

Here’s a very sweet feedback message from a lady, Angelina who tried the brownie and cookies, courtesy of Jenny Lim:

Tks a lot Jenny for letting me try the cake and cookies. Even my hubby who never eats cakes said the brownie was fantastic. Will definitely recommend to my frens. Tks again.

We’ll looking into the possibility of test batches for future items, and if you’ll like to be one of our “testers”, do keep a look-out for more information on this in time to come!
