A Friday ritual.

A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week.

A simple, special, extraordinary moment.

A moment I want to pause, savor and remember – {this moment}

Normally, the boys go to fencing on their own. However, today Dai Bee has track meet and won’t be back in time. And I can’t get leave work early. This means Ah Lo has to lug his big old bag and go there by himself. While at work, I was so worried about him managing to get there by himself. Sometimes that’s what mothers do,  we worry about this and worry about that. Not only did he get there fine, he was there early. Even my baby is a growing up so fast.

Another quick and easy meal for our busy Wednesday night schedule – one with basketball practice and another violin lesson. FullSizeRender

Bought this very nice piece of pork belly for awhile and couldn’t wait to try out the roast pork recipe I found on Instagram. I was a bit hesitant to make it at first, afraid that I would mess it up (even though the recipe was foolproof). I decided to give it a shot since I would never know if I didn’t try.IMG_6977

The meat came out beautifully, except the skin was not thick enough for the crispiness, plus it was a bit on the salty side. These are the things I need to work on for my next piece of delicacy!IMG_6978Overall, it made it the dinner table tonight.IMG_6982

Lately, the boys have been packing their own lunches (from leftovers). They basically heat it up the morning and pack them in their thermos in the morning. From preparing bentos every morning, to making “normal” lunches, this has been a LONG time in coming. But really, it’s time. I have a 8th grader and a 5th grader, and they’re more than capable.

Busy day for Dai Bee and his music activities today, while Ah Lo is at home with me. Because Ah Lo doesn’t have anything to do, we did things on spontaneity (practicing basketball at the playground and even lap swimming!) Luckily I already have these ingredients at home, so we could enjoy a simple meal at home.IMG_6971

Being the gym commissioner for Ah Lo’s team tournament, one of the responsibility is to find the scorekeeper for all the games. At 10:30pm the night before, I was still scrambling to find one. I volunteered Mr. Piggy, so he got busy learning how to be a scorekeeper via youtube that night. LOL.

When the time came, I just asked Dai Bee to take over the job since he’s familiar with the game rules. He sat down and poked at the machine. Next thing, he was there all day long and kept going for the next 8 games. Great he can earned the extra cash while enjoying the games.

It’s been awhile since I baked soft bread rolls. Yesterday, just had time to make dough and left it overnight. IMG_6973Only took 15 minutes to baked these. Loved the fluffiness of the bread. Nothing beats fresh batch of bread rolls right out of the oven for breakfast! I haven’t quite perfected this recipe yet, so I won’t put it down. Once I have this down, I’ll be to share it.IMG_6976
