Our family has embarked on virtual travels to various countries and regions. To explore these countries and their cultures, we have followed along with the festivals, cooked and eaten traditional foods, learned of traditional handicrafts with hands on exploration, along with many activities to immerse ourselves. Chronicled here are some of these activities.

Our Weekend in a Nutshell

This week, my sister celebrated her birthday, for which a group of us got together, enjoyed a sushi feast, participated in a murder mystery, and overall laughed and giggled over the littlest things as we often do when together. It was a great time, and all the more special in celebrating the remarkable woman I am blessed to call my sister. She has been a constant source of support, understanding, and laughter for me and there are no words to describe how grateful I am. 

The girls spent most of the weekend working on school projects (Elle) or studying for a week of midterms (Pea). We took a break to make Thai pancakes, roti that requires a special touch to get them quite thin. At first, Pea felt her break time would be better spent elsewhere, but was drawn in from the sounds of our laughter while trying to slap that dough into shape - it didn't work, but we had fun! 

Pea had been asking for me to dig up photos (I really need to organize those!) and we spent a cozy evening looking at them. With all those baby and toddler pictures, there was a lot of "awwww"ing going on :) Kids really do grow up fast, don't they?


  1. They really do. Blink and the suddenly go from being an innocent little child to a human being (of sorts!) with hormones!!
    Love the picture of you and your sister!
