Lumpiang Sariwa (Fresh Vegetable Roll)

Lumpia are pastries of Chinese origin similar to spring rolls popular in the Philippines. It is made of different kinds of vegetables and usually eaten fresh or fried.

I woke up at 4:00am this morning not knowing why and I wasn’t able to sleep until 5:30am. I kept myself busy by cleaning some things in the room, careful not wake up a sleeping 2-year-old .When I was finished, I read a few pages of a paperback I’ve already read three times until I drift off to sleep again.

Now, I’m sleepy.. I wish there’s somebody to hug me much like the lumpia wrapper hugging those little pieces of veggies.

I hope you all had a good night’s sleep and are all having a great day.
