since i became a mother, i’ve almost never been in any book related event. i’m just drown between motherhood and work.

but a few weeks ago, jessica, an old friend of mine, invited me to her book launch! the new book is called galila. part of the story was set in the mollucas. it’s about a village girl turned into a famous singer and her love with someone with different background.

i managed to get the book a few days before the event but have not finish reading it.

You know what I think? I think from the time we leave our parents house until we have kids – that’s the only time your life is completely your own.

when i found out about stuffed pizza muffin, i thought it was a brilliant idea. but not until a few days ago, i made it. i used smoked beef instead of sausage and used la fonte bolognese sauce for the pizza sauce.

it turned out really delicious. i’m definitely going to make it again…

done with maya, i’m reading the cat’s table by michael ondaatje. this is one of the book i got from book depository months ago but didn’t have chance to read it up until now.

the story of the book is so interesting. about an 11 years-old boy traveling alone on the ship from sri lanka to london. he made friends on the way and the story is about his life of 21 days on board.
