It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.
So this happened. This being Singapore Day, which happens once a year in a different country. It was the first time in California – the other two US-based Singapore Days were in NYC. You can read all about it here. It’s kinda crazy how much time and effort (not to mention the $$$$!) was put into this event for Singaporeans living overseas!
The usual library and park play date on Wednesdays.
I’m not much of a gardener but we put in a planter in spring and I tried planting some bush beans from seed. Other things the kids and I have grown from seeds – some gorgeous multicolored sunflowers, “Easter egg” radishes. A really tiny carrot (none of the other carrot seeds made it!).
Our Kind of Traitor, based on a John Le Carre book and starring Ewan McGregor, Damian Lewis, Stellan Skarsgård)
Sing! China – a singing competition much like The Voice except well, in Chinese. I think what I’ve really liked is how the contestants come from all over China, Inner Mongolia, Beijing, Hainan, Liaoning, Fujian, even other countries like Taiwan, Malaysia, Canada and Singapore.
I made waffles this morning for breakfast. The 5yo being extremely sulky refused to eat any of it. Kids!!
Tea with milk and then a Nespresso
We made a steamed pomfret last week and the 5yo declared that he would like to eat it every day. So some kind of fish dish!
Korean sweet potato noodles probably with beef and lots of vegetables
