The kids started school last Wednesday. It was both exciting and bit worrying being back in school. So many kids! So many adults! But the school district has required masks to be worn by students, staff, and parents when on the campus. And they’ve staggered the lunch times so there’s less crowding in the cafeteria. The kids also get to eat in the outdoors amphitheatre now, which they were happy about.
The school district said that 95% of the teachers have been fully vaccinated so I’m just glad that we are all working together to keep our kids safe.
The kids were excited to see friends that they haven’t seen since March 2020, when the schools here closed. They’ve met up with some friends regularly but there were plenty they haven’t seen for a long time.
Some things last week:
Singapore’s National Day is August 9 but because of the pandemic, the National Day Parade got postponed to last weekend. So we got to watch it on Youtube. And we had to watch and eat with Singapore food!
The Disaster Tourist – Yun Ko-eun
The Wolf and the Woodsman – Ava Reid
Every week, Hospital Playlist‘s new episode (last week’s was especially good!). Also I started watching The Good Place season 4.
No audiobooks at the moment.
Eating and Drinking:
Had some toast for breakfast. Am now drinking coffee.
I just placed a Weee! order – it’s an online store specialising in Asian and Latino groceries. So I hope to make some bak kut teh, a Singapore dish that’s essentially a pork soup with herbs and spices. It’s eaten with rice and vegetables. And youtiao or fried dough sticks.
Oh well, guess I only finished one book last week. I’ve got so many going though…
