This phrase kept coming up to my mind after Lizzy said it. Context? Sofia went to a sleepover, Lizzy felt left out, so I took her for a walk and ended up in her favorite kids cloth shop. We found a dress that we both like. When we took it to the dress room and put on, she looked at the mirror and confidently said: this is perfect! 😆 (this girl keeps cracking me up!)

Our Sunday was indeed perfect. I run 10km followed by morning scootering walk with the girls (due to the typhoon, bicycle lanes are not put back yet). When girls had a zoom chinese reading session, hubby and I went out for a walk and got some groceries (our favourite type of dates). Then I put together a nice lunch (fridge cleaning session) with tons of vegetables and a main dish

arroz con pollo. So easy to make, crowd pleaser, and plenty of leftovers.


I really like the tradition of making a nice Sunday family lunch. Both girls keep telling me I’m the best cooker in the world.

I also baked two loafs of bread, and made french toast (one of girls favorite breakfast item in Shangri-la Boracay). They loved it!


I took a 30 min nap and then curled up in the couch for some reading. Lizzy came after her nap and I catch her just awaking face.


I finished two books yesterday, UNTAMED and Plant Paradox. The first one is GOLD, the second one is crap.


Since chapter 1, I was captivated by Glennon. Her writing is excellent, her insight is earth-shaking sometimes, and she leaves me thinking. Her experience of leaving the father of her three children was relatable, too relatable; her parenting style is a bit too innovative; and her perception of the world is mind blowing. Highly recommended. This part made me laugh


Our evening without Sofia was so quiet. You really need two kids to make enough noise at home. Lizzy spent sometime with me while eating her fruits, with husband watching cats videos, and with grandma making silly outfits.

  1. Awww sounds like a very perfect day indeed. That picture of Lizzy is SO CUTE. When do you read so much?? Seems like you’ve been flying through the books lately!! That’s great. I have been reading very consistently, every day, and I’m reading 2-3 books at a time right now, but I still feel like I oftentimes only make it through 10-15 pages per book per day. (and sometimes only 1-2 of the books).


  2. I’m an avid reader and fast one if it’s non-fiction. I think I probably read 1-2 hrs most days (30 min before work in the morning, 30-60 min in the evening with the girls). On weekends, I read even more. I find it more relaxing. When I decided to ditch the phone, more time became available 🙂
