Also, my parents flew back to Singapore on Saturday and we were all teary (and the kids were sobbing). It was great having them around, especially my Dad who was last here two years ago and doesn’t like cold weather.
We had a nice at-home Spring Break. It was really hot last week so the kids did some swimming, biking and scootering, gardening, and hanging out with friends at a trampoline park.
And my younger boy turned 6!
So I made a funfetti cake with vanilla frosting as he requested.

Street Food on Netflix – I loved the Singapore episode which focused on a few different hawker foods, and featured the story of the woman whose family runs the famous putu piring stall. Putu piring is a special dessert made of steamed rice flour, gula melaka (palm sugar), and coconut. It’s so delicious and we make sure to eat it every time we go back. Luckily there’s one near my Dad’s store in the Haig Road market.
I just finished listening to American Like Me, edited by America Ferrera. And am looking for my next audiobook!
Brie and a piece of toast
It’s going to be a much cooler week this week, also the husband is away the whole week! So to make things easier on myself, I’m planning to make some baked mac and cheese. I usually make two trays worth so I can freeze one.
