I’ve been doing some freelance writing for a project due next month. So when the kids are at school/summer camp, I’ve been writing, not reading all that much. And definitely not blogging. I have still been on Litsy and Instagram, mostly because I’ve been doing a book photo challenge and have been enjoying thinking up books that I own for the different topics.
I’ve been having some trouble getting my 3yo to school. We have to drop him off first as the 5yo’s summer camp only starts at 9. And the 3yo is having trouble adjusting to preschool without big brother there! We’ve had to get the teacher to help out to bring him in. With this kid, bribes and all don’t work so I’m not sure what to do!
On the other hand, we had a busy weekend. We went to Gilroy Gardens again for more fruit and veg-themed amusement park fun. We have a yearly membership so we try to go a few times to maximize the membership! But it was SOOOOO hot…!!
Then on Sunday, after our usual farmers’ market stop, we went down to San Jose to the Mitsuwa supermarket for ramen (make mine spicy!). And to pick up sashimi and other ingredients for sushi dinner at home. Yum.
Over on Litsy, there’s a mini #bookisholympics that I’ve decided to join in. A bit ambitious I would say, but it’s always fun to aim high. Although a bit too high in my case as I’m aiming for the gold! (7 novels before the Olympics is over!).
I’m currently reading…
Ru – Kim Thuy
Thorn – Intisar Khanani

I just had a nespresso at home
Something for foodie readers (or bookish cooks?) – a guide to Alice Medrich’s baking books
I’m not much of a colouring book fan (I do like it, I just don’t ever have the time to sit down and colour!). But I just adore this unusual colouring book, inspired by life in Japan
Swimmer Joseph Schooling won Singapore’s first ever Olympic gold medal in the 100m butterfly last week. And hey, it turns out we had the same swimming coach as kids.
Last train from Tanjong Pagar – Koh Hong Teng
Hope you guys have a great week ahead! Let me know what you’re reading!
