Peek into my life 65

EN

One of the great morning feels: hearing all the alarms going off at my dad’s and brother except you don’t have to get up and continue going back to sleep (in).

That is right I have 1 week holiday!

One of the perks of working at a school really.
The kids and teachers including myself are having this holiday called ‘pre-spring holiday’. I have a co-worker who is off to NY for a week. Sigh, take me with you! Another co-worker is isolating from the world and in the nature of Belgium. Me? I’m staycationing at this February of mine.

 Also Chinese Lunar New Year was at 8th February. We didn’t do anything special but I hope you guys had a nice one!

Een heerlijk ochtend gevoel: het horen van al het alarm afgaan bij papa en broer, behalve dat jezelf niet hoef op te staan en lekker blijft liggen en uitslaapt.

Inderdaad ik heb een week voorjaarsvakantie!

Een van de voordelen als je op een school werkt. Ik heb een collega die naar New York  is gevlogen voor een week. Zucht, ik wil ook! Een ander collega isoleert zichzelf van de wereld in het vakantiepark in België. Ikzelf? Ik blijf gewoon lekker thuis. Ook leuk.

 Het Chinees Nieuw Jaar was ook gaande deze maand. We hebben niets bijzonders ermee gedaan. Ik wil nogmaals jullie een fijne jaarwisseling wensen!

My craft desk lately
I've been crocheting and glueing things together a lot lately, more of it soon!

I kind of stopped taking OOTD pictures lately. Maybe I should get it back on track.

 A lunch at De Steenen Brug where I had my first savory pancake ever: pancake with tuna, cheese, onion and tomatoes. It was delicious! My friend got Dutch styled mini pancakes called 'poffertjes'. We both shared our meals, and got myself some of the poffertjes which were light, buttery and nice. If you ever visit Holland: eat poffertjes!
 Outta my kitchen
I've been experimenting with sugar free bakings lately. Here I've made oatmeal black sesame biscuits with coconut and cranberries.

A parcel with Pocky snacks inside. From my aunt from China.謝謝 !

Coffee breaks
My 2nd visit (first time here!) at Expresszo and got myself 'Maltesers latte'. It's basically milk with Maltesers which you have to wait for all the chocolate Maltesers balls to be melted. The idea is good, though the drink itself was perhaps too creamy. The lovely barista probably noticed my puzzeled face and added a free shot of coffee into my drink to lift up the flavor. Thank you so much! Once everything is melted it looks like milk chocolate.
At Kaldi cafe. More of this soon.

Cute Valentine themed cakes at my local bakery.

Another chain cafe and it's called 'La Place' and currently closed due to bankruptcy. This was our last meal. 

At work I did...
...something quite educational with the kids: examining owl pellets. 
We have spend 3 classes about it and the kids did a great job on finding all sorts of bones, pieces of fur and teeth inside the pellets.

At home I did...
At home I did yoga of course! Still doing it everyday and feeling goodgood in my body.


My February was pretty good! How was yours?

  2. Lucky you! My only break this semester is Spring Break, which is the second week of March. // That toast coaster is so cute! // Love that outfit; all those cosy layers :) // omg I just started reading #GIRLBOSS last night and it mentioned owl pellets LOL // I've joined my college's Fit Club Yoga, which meets every Monday at noon! I skipped today to study for a quiz, but I've made all the other classes so far this semester. After class I always feel mentally refreshed and a little bit physically sore, but in the best way -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  4. Your outfits are so cute! Definitely do my OOTD. Also, in that shot of you doing yoga, I didn't realise they were your leggings and thought you had really really bad bruises! Enjoy your staycation.
