I was supposed to write something about Friday's academic deliberations, but, since the discussions are confidential, I'll limit myself to saying that I think we teachers made the right decisions regarding the students. Hopefully, they'll appreciate our efforts, even those who will be failing the year.
Last weekend was rather hectic. Saturday we went over to Megamall to do some shopping. We dropped G off at her favorite playroom, and went off doing our respective chores. I was able to squeeze in getting the Code Name: Kids Next Door action figure set from Toy Kingdom; I figured I deserved it because I worked to finish my grades early. We had lunch at Luk Yuen, and I tried out the halo-halo congee, which was delicious. If only their version of halo-halo was as good; it didn't even look the way it did in their menu. Chow King's halo-halo is far superior.
Yesterday, H had an accident involving her right pointer finger, as it got stabbed by the sewing machine needle. Fortunately, no shard of the needle got stuck in her finger, but we had to go to NKI for her to get an anti-tetanus shot. While she was waiting in the emergency room, I hied over to the nearby Lung Center market, where I picked up some of the ingredients for dinner.
Dinner was fun, because I finally got to cook stuffed bell peppers, after finding the right-sized peppers at the market. While they were costly (P105 for four peppers), they were nicely peppery sweet and flavorful after I baked them in the oven for an hour. I even took a picture of it, which I will post once I download the picture from the digital camera.
For dessert, H treated me, G, and her sister to coffee and cake at Coffee Beanery.
This week will be end-of-the-year matters in the high school, and, while I'm not looking forward to the numerous meetings, it'll be worth keeping in mind that summer vacation is only a week or two away, and I do plan to get some well-deserved rest.
At least until the baby is born, sometime at the end of April or the start of May.
