Having lived most of my life near the equator you would think I’d be used to the heat by now. But no not really. I am not a fan of the heat and humidity. Luckily the SF Bay Area tends to be relatively cool (compared to Singapore’s average temps of 35C year round) even during the summer except for the occasional Heat Advisory days. And boy was the weekend a scorcher!
So we skipped outdoor plans and instead spent the day indoors at the San Jose Children’s Museum, where we are members. The kids had a great time as always and we decided that an icy treat was in store for us after. So we headed to the nearby Japantown in San Jose for some shaved ice and mochi from Shuei-do Mando Shop.

I tried out this British police comedy called Vexed, available on Netflix. Kind of amusing.
But otherwise as usual I’m watching a show here a show there. Angel Season 2, The Carrie Diaries Season 1.
Chocolate digestive biscuit. So good. I’ve recently realized that I can buy them from the Indian supermarket. Which is also where I found a good price on my PG Tips!
Maybe some Singapore-style prawn noodles.
Also we still have plenty of pastes. So maybe a spicy beef rendang with coconut rice.
Ok I got distracted by the thought of coconut rice and can’t think of what else is for this coming week.
I so want to make this Chinese sausage (lapcheong) potato salad now. Never thought of doing that but I can see that it would really work!
This video of astronaut Karen Nyberg washing her hair in space blew me away!
