It’s Monday (September 20, 2021)

Hello, it’s Monday again. How are you? How was your weekend?

We had a nice cool weekend in terms of weather. But as with California weather, the moment it’s officially autumn, the heat goes back up! This week’s going to be a hot one…not looking forward to it.

Some things last week:

The husband was busy this weekend with work stuff so we didn’t do much. Took the kids to play tennis and swim. They wore wetsuits but said it was cold so didn’t stay too long.

Homemade ramen with fish cakes, spinach, mushrooms
Got our usual takeout sushi for Saturday dinner




We are Satellites – Sarah Pinsker

A slight departure from RIP-related reading cos this hold came in from the library!


Last Thursday was the last episode of season 2 of Hospital Playlist! It looks like there are no plans for a third season!

Meanwhile, I’ve also been binge-watching Reply 1988. It’s by the same director and writer so there are some similarities. Although of course it’s very different. Reply 1988 is set in a neighbourhood in Seoul and revolves around a few families who live there. They have teenagers about the same age. I really appreciate how it’s not just about the teenagers but also their siblings and parents.


The Flight Attendant – Chris Bohjalian

Eating and Drinking:

Toast and tea


What to cook this week? Maybe I’ll make some pasta salad. I suddenly feel like eating pasta salad.

I also have some premade laksa paste in the pantry that I need to finish up. That means I need to get some fish cake and bean sprouts from the supermarket.

Last week:
