August marked the return to school for Loving Husband & Older Daughter. No more huddling at home around the dining table for long meals, no more marathon sessions in the kitchen, no more lounging around in PJs.
It also marked the end of the Majulah Run, a 55 day run commemorating Singapore’s 55th birthday (majulah mean onward in Bahasa Malayu). Loving Husband, champ that he is, ran on all 55 days. I proudly ran for 52 days (3 sick days).
I did some quilling for yet another dear friend who has left the country because of her husband’s job. (Butterflies tatted by Older Daughter)
Foods we enjoyed/experimented with (from top left, clockwise): Piggies filled with chocolate paste (from Yum Cha, our favourite Dim Sum place), Truffle Bao filled with truffled mushrooms (also from Yum Cha), cheddar & chive scones, strawberry cupcake, Mermaid cheesecake, cinnamon-pecan cake, Berry tiramisu.
As part of homeschooling, Younger Daughter and I made something together everyday in August. Mostly stir-fries (we are working on our “chopping” skills), but we did get around to treats as well. We were well fed.
