Still busy working on my freelance writing project so haven’t had much time to sit down at the computer and blog. All my reading updates are happening on Litsy and Instagram and Goodreads these days. But I really want to write about some books I’ve recently read though!
The 5yo was on a science camp last week. This week he will go to a dinosaur camp, but just for two days. And then I’ll have to figure out how to entertain him for the rest of the week!
We tried out a new-to-us breakfast place on Saturday. Fluffy pancakes, actually crisp Belgian waffles (sorry guys, but I really do think I make better waffles than most places here, even with a twenty-year-old waffle iron), a surprisingly good corn beef hash! And hey, coffee that actually has a taste. I keep drinking horrendous coffee that is more like brown water at diners across the state. I am really not a drip coffee kind of person. I am a drinker of flat whites (easily found everywhere in Singapore), so here I drink lattes but I dunno, I guess it’s cos I live in the suburbs, but even the lattes here are a bit meh. I suspect I will need to go into SF for better coffee!
And one great thing about this place was that it was opposite a nice park with a nice shady playground. Then we popped over to the outlet mall after that, to pick up some new shoes and shorts for my almost-kindergartener.

I’m actually reading this for the writing project, which is about parenting. It’s pretty interesting so far!
Sugarbread – Balli Kaur Jaswal
I hope more people read this! In the first place, I hope more people actually can find this book. I love how involved it is with Singapore food. Want to know about Singapore food? Read this book!
Shameless! Love this show.
Errr… maybe one of these?!?!
