Apple Pie/ Power of Chia

So proud of Andrew! He made banana bread on his own 😁

He asked me for the recipe so I just sent him the link to it and he didn't want to read the instructions but wanted it to summarise it. The website is already in point form but he claims it's "different" when I say it.

So I had to send so many audio notes basically reading the instructions out to him but then he said he still didn't get it πŸ˜‘ I think eventually he had no choice but to read it because I was asleep πŸ˜‚

This is very odd but looking at all the food pictures in my post yesterday is making me feel so sick. It was so hard for me to post pictures of the burgers without feeling nauseous πŸ˜‚ My goodness, my meat aversion has not waned at all. I can't even look through the entire post πŸ˜‚

Received an apple pie from Old Seng Choong today!!!! Thank you Janine 😊

My mother was super super excited because she loves apple pie. The moment we got it, we attacked.

That golden crust 😍

It was SO GOOD. The crust is so buttery and the apple filling is the perfect balance of sweetness and tartness and it was tender. I've eaten apple pies before and the apples were still hard so I didn't like it but this was perfect. There are raisins inside too!

Initially my mother and I were sharing one piece and she was going MMMMMM MMMMM MMMMMM. Then she said "you finish this IM TAKING ANOTHER SLICE FOR MYSELF" πŸ˜‚

First thing she attacked was the crust πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

It's quite a huge portion so I'm sharing it with my in-laws!!

You can order it from www.oldsengchoong.com and use this code:

This is really an amazing apple pie, probably one of the best I've eaten so far. We ate it straight without heating it up because we were greedy but I think it'll be even nicer eating it warm/hot!

Old Seng Choong also has really good butter cakes which I posted about here @tieponytail:100517. I loved the original butter cake the most πŸ˜‹

I had to really control myself from finishing the entire slice. I'm super strict with my sugar intake now because I don't want to gain so much weight πŸ˜‚

I am also so happy because I've gone to the toilet 3 days in a row. It's been such a long time!!!

Before pregnancy, I went once every day without fail.

Now, I only poop once EVERY 5 DAYS. It is torture 😭 I think my stuck shit has contributed to my intense bloating and gas.

So on Sunday, I went to @twolittlewhales place and I requested for chia seed pudding because I always see it on her posts but no chance to eat πŸ˜‚

Cheryl made overnight oats, matcha chia pudding, chocolate chia pudding and a boozey one that I couldn't partake πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­ Her presentation is always 10/10 too.

I've made overnight oats before but after eating Cheryl's, mine = horrible. I don't know how Cheryl does it because her overnight oats are so light??? We kept eating it and still didn't feel jelak or full. My overnight oats are so heavy. It's like there's a brick in your stomach after eating it.

The chia seed pudding was so amazing and we ate so much πŸ˜‚ Cheryl is really pro at making all these healthy food.

When I got home later that night, I poo-ed and it felt so good. CHIA SHIT. It was such a smooth ride πŸ˜‚

The next day in the afternoon, I WENT TO THE TOILET AGAIN oh my god I was so happy *tears of joy*

I strongly believe it's the chia seeds so in the evening my mother and I went to NTUC and bought chia seed and I attempted to make a milo chia pudding.

Cheryl experimented that night with milo while we were there and it was so good!!!! So I thought I'd try it myself but I think only Cheryl has this magic touch with chia pudding.

I made wayyyyy too much milo πŸ˜‚ I had only intended to put in about 3 teaspoons of chia seeds but I ended up putting in 4.

I let it chill in the fridge for about 2 hours but it was so watery πŸ˜‚ Not pudding/gooey like Cheryl's but IT WAS GOOD.

I told myself to only drink half but nope. I finished everything. All 4 teaspoons of chia seed.

This afternoon, I WENT TO CHIA SHIT AGAIN.

I am so happy. *more tears of joy*

It's been so long that I've pooped consecutively for 3 days πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ So so so happy. I am going to religiously take 2 teaspoons of chia seeds everyday.

It arrived so quickly, within a week!!

Can't wait to try it out. I really hope the colour suits me. I don't want to be white πŸ˜‚

So fancy πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

All I want is to even out my skin tone and hopefully cover some scars.

After a few layers.... not too bad!! Managed to cover a bit but I think I still need concealer over if I want the scars completely gone!

Overall I really quite like it and thankfully it's not too light and I don't look like a ghost πŸ˜‚

Met @hoppypoppyz for dinner today!!! We just parted ways and even after saying bye bye also still continue talking for 5 minutes before saying bye for real πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

The queue for that famous Taiwan cake is really crazy. I give a few months before it dies down πŸ˜‚

Bake cheese tarts used to have crazy queues and now... NO QUEUE AT ALL.

Thank you so much Mich @laceydacy for the handphone case!! (given/sponsored by Laceydacy) This is for Andrew's xiaomi and it has bass guitars all over. The quality of the print is really so good, so much better than the one I bought for my mum last year from somewhere else that cost a bomb.

Just search laceydacy on Shopee for the phone cases, and its customisable too ☺️

Thank you for zhng-ing our faces with meitu @hoppypoppyz πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I actually quite like the Laneige bb cream. Looks very natural and it survived the heat pretty well however my face feels a bit sticky!!!! After I first put it on, my hair stuck to my cheeks πŸ˜‚

I'm very happy cause Ven says I don't look like I'm pregnant πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ YAY. I only look pregnant late at night when my stomach bloats with all the gas but in the morning it gets super deflated. The flatness is only short-lived πŸ˜’

I am forced by my brother to do this because he earns $1 from every sign up so if anyone hasn't signed up for ezbuy, please do sign up with this link http://bit.ly/JordanAM and let this poor lonely soul earn some money πŸ˜‚

Andrew and I are super excited because tomorrow I'm going for my 16 week gynae appointment and hopefully we can find out the gender!!!!!!!!!!!! I know some people have found out at 13-14 weeks so hopefully 16 weeks we can find out.

I'm going to ask the gynae to just write it down and put it into an envelope so I can open it on Skype with Andrew ☺️

We are going to keep the gender a secret from everyone till he comes back and then hold the (cheesy and tacky) gender reveal party!!

I was just browsing through some pictures of what's on sale on the baby fair's Facebook page since it was suggested and what the heck. Baby stuff are ridiculously expensive!!!

Airtight containers already $27+??? Playmat $200+?! It's really very crazy and ridiculous. I'm going to buy whatever I can on carousell πŸ˜‚ I'll just buy and make do with the necessities only.

I really don't mind buying second hand stuff like strollers unless I can find a brand new one at a really good price. I'm eyeing the GB Pockit though cause it's quite affordable, compact and light. I just bought a milk bottle on Carousell a few days ago πŸ˜‚

Aiya maybe for the stroller can always buy after the baby is out, no hurryπŸ˜‚

Actually I think I may just skip baby fairs. It's so crowded and overwhelming 😰 I don't even know if the discounts are massive as compared to buying the stuff online πŸ€”

mrsergul the pudding should thicken significantly if you leave it in the fridge overnight. I love it as a light dessert.

flatwhiteplease Chia's really good for Fiber but must remember to hydrate more k! I was soooo constipated when I was pregnant the gynaecologist had to prescribe me stool softeners. 😩 I found out that Daiso's canned coffee worked wonders for me so it was always my last resort hahah
