Hi, guess it’s Monday again, huh.
We went for more Singapore/Malaysia food on Saturday, driving up to Pleasanton just for this takeout.
We had nasi lemak, mee siam goreng, and two types of kueh (kueh Talam with red bean and Pulut Wajik, which is glutinous rice cooked with coconut milk and gula melaka).
Saturday night saw an unusual occurrence – lightning and thunder! We have never seen so much lightning in all our ten years in California. Thunderstorms are a regular event in Singapore but not in CA. The kids were quite excited about it.
It set off quite a few fires unfortunately and a few traffic lights in our area were out too.
And there was rain. Actual rain in August!
Of course after that, it was back to the heatwave that we’ve been having since Friday – it’s hotter than in Singapore!
The boys had a piano recital on Sunday – over Zoom that is. And it went well
Since it was such a hot weekend, we had sushi for Sunday dinner.

I had a toasted bagel with Laughing Cow cheese for breakfast
Yorkshire Gold with milk
Maybe some taco rice this week
I also have some fresh chowmein-style noodles to cook up, so probably a fried noodle with fish cake, vegetables
