Cataract eye surgery

My left eye and vision is improving after the cataract surgery a few days ago.  Most people after age 50 may need to have the cataract surgery because the lenses of the eyes will get cloudier and result in blurred vision that could affect the daily activities like reading, driving etc.
The actual surgery takes about 10 minutes and is painless. It is a procedure whereby the eye surgeon removed the cataract in the eye and replaces it with an artificial lens so you may be able to have a clearer vision for the rest of your life.
I am happy that I had the surgery done on my left eye and will soon be going for the surgery on the right eye.
If one engages the services of a private eye specialist, the total bill for cataract operation of both eyes may come up to $14,000 plus. However, at the government hospitals, after subsidies for Singapore citizens and PRs the bill should be around $2,600. I think one may use his/her Medisave of up to $2,200. The rest may be paid in cash ($400).

Roast beef day

Went to Giant Tampines yesterday to buy roast beef and bread for our meals. We had roast beef and cheese sandwiches for breakfast and roast beef rice plus papaya salad for lunch. All meals were prepared at home and they were not only healthy but delicious too!

My favourite chicken curry

Curry chicken for lunch. It was cooked by my wife as I told her of my wish to eat her home cooked curry chicken. It was a satisfying and lovely meal especially after the surgery. The top picture didn't look like curry because she placed the veggies on top of the curry in the wok. But nevertheless, the veggies worked wonders as they are full of fiber.

Fried chicken breast meat for dinner

Had the fried chicken plus veggie soup and rice for dinner. Now trying to eat less and eat healthy.

Going for the cataract operation

My eyes hurt and vision is not so clear. At my eye checkup, I was told I had to go for a cataract surgery which I did yesterday. I had the surgery on my left eye first and later, the right eye.
The procedure took 10 minutes and it was painless. However, the preparation for the surgery was quite long and caused a lot of anxiety.
At the end of it all, I could see very clearly with my operated left eye.
The top picture was before the surgery and the second was after the surgery. I was offered a cup of Milo and some sandwiches. I should be going for my second surgery for the right eye at an appointed date.

A dreaded incurable disease

I had this skin condition known as Pigmented Purpuric Dermatology (PPD) for 2 years. I've consulted dermatologists and TCM practitioners. I've even consulted the National Skin Center specialists but all told me there was no cure for this chronic condition. The coloration and swelling of my legs was due to scratching. One can't help but to scratch due to intense itchiness.
In desperation, I turned to the Lord Jesus Christ for help. In the bible,Jesus demonstrated his healing power and healed many. Read more .

Amazingly, after seeking the Lord Jesus and praying earnestly for him to heal me, this was what happened (see below).

When all the skin specialists,doctors and a professor told me there wasn't any cure for my condition, the merciful Lord Jesus performed a miracle and I was healed. He healed the sick when he was on earth and still heals the sick today if we believe in Him for "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever" Hebrew 13:8.

Eating at home on Sunday

Crowded Sunday so we prepared our food and ate at home. Breakfast was sandwiches prepared by me. The orange stuff on the slice of bread (top pic) was cheese with other fillings like egg, tuna etc.
The bottom pic was our lunch.
