Wow, November’s going by pretty quickly! Here’s what I was up to the week of November 11 to 17.
Cooked pad thai for the first time. It’s definitely worth a repeat but next time I’ll add more hotness to it.
Got stuck in traffic. I should have known better than to drive down Katipunan on a school day, close to dismissal time.
Someone got a treat for dessert!
Attended a homeschooling seminar. Bea’s only two years old but we have to start thinking about her education. I’ want to choose homeschooling over conventional school but am getting A LOT of opposition.
Bought my little girl two books. I used to read Sally’s Secret in the school library when I was a kid.
Here in the Philippines, there’s a saying that you should stop somewhere else on your way home from a wake so that the spirit of the recently deceased (or any other spirit, for that matter) won’t follow you home. Being the scaredy cat that I am, I was more than happy to stop for coffee! Although, in hindsight, the peppermint mocha I had probably contributed to my inability to fall asleep right away that night.
Dutch baby pancakes for Sunday breakfast. This recipe called for apples but I only had pears so used those instead. It turned out so yummy! I really liked the gooey-ness of the honey at the bottom of the pancake. It has to be served upside down, which I forgot to do so the plates were quite difficult to clean after.

Another wall at The Collective on Malugay Street, Makati City.
Wings for lunch at Wingman
A great way to end the weekend – a foot reflexology massage at Footzone!
