Butter Cake/Bralettes

The amount of truth in this hurts πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­

When I woke up, I immediately whatsapped Cheryl because I had a nightmare and she was in it.

I dreamt we were doing a flight together and both were working in the same place. I didn't prepare ANYTHING and I kept borrowing EVERYTHING from her: meal order pad, sticker, pen etc and I even asked her for hairspray. My hair was untied and I just tied it into a bun and she was using some organic hairspray that was as good as water.

So Cheryl got very annoyed with me and told me "Why you so blur????" and I was like "I haven't done this in such a long time leh........" πŸ˜‚

Then I didn't know where my seat was and Cheryl just told me "556" so I assumed it was the compartment that contained all the safety equipment for me to check and I searched the whole aircraft for it but could only find "555".

Everybody was so annoyed with me because I was so blur πŸ˜‚

So eventually I didn't know where to sit at all and then during take-off I realised that there was one door unmanned so that must have been mine πŸ˜‚ I sat right in front of the boss and he didn't even say anything πŸ˜‚

It was really such a nightmare and I woke up feeling so tired. How can Cheryl, who claims that I'm her favouritest batchgirl, BE SO MEAN TO ME πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Your number just one digit smaller than me then you think you very big already is it can be so bad to me πŸ˜‚

I cannot take all these airplane related dreams because I'm always doing something wrong and panicking and end up waking up feeling so tired πŸ˜‚

Back to reality, my poor Andrew is not well. He said he had a sore throat and it's those vomit sore throats. For him when he gets sore throats, he'll spend the next day just puking non-stop and can't eat anything and nobody is there to look after him 😭 Usually this is caused by stressed and he's been very stressed over work recently. I hope he will be alright and not end up puking.

My family received 2 pound cakes from Old Seng Choong yesterday! They're the same founders of Bakerzin and Cat and the Fiddle.

They have very interesting flavours of butter cakes like Matcha & White Chocolate, Red Dates and Walnuts.

I chose the original butter cake ($18) and the other one was suggested by Janine which was Yuzu and Winter Melon butter cake ($26).

This is the original!! My mum LOVES butter cake.

The best way to eat butter cake is by heating it up in the toaster oven or just toasting it in a pan πŸ˜‹

The original butter cake was good!! I really liked it and I tried to control my portion πŸ˜‚ Cut slices for my parents, toasted it and they said it was very nice.

This is the Yuzu and Winter Melon butter cake. Sounds very interesting.

There are chunks of winter Melon in the butter cake. At first bite I was like WHAT IS THIS because it was super unusual to have Winter Melon in cake. But the more I ate, the more the flavour grew on me. It's really something different!!

For my mum and I, we still like the original the best whereas my father likes both a lot.

I think I'm going to give some to my in-laws for them to try because they like cakes too.

It makes a very good breakfast πŸ˜‚ I just heated a thin slice of the original one in the microwave for a short while. It takes a lot of discipline for me to just stop at one slice seriously. I was starving so I didn't have patience to toast it instead.

Janine from Old Seng Choong has kindly extended a discount code for my readers, just key in "Oscxhilary" for a 20% discount! You can get their butter cakes from www.oldsengchoong.com

Thank you very much Janine for the butter cakes! 😊 I'm so happy I can eat sweet stuff πŸ˜‚ The matcha and white chocolate one sounds very good.

Yesterday I went out in the afternoon and got a text from @braintango saying she's dropping off bralettes at my house 😭

She says she read that all my bras are too tight so she gave me all the larger bralettes 😭 Thank you laobanniang you are so sweet πŸ’•

My boobs really grew. I don't know if it's a good or bad thing because big boobs = clothes will fit everywhere EXCEPT THE CHEST AREA. All the button down shirts will be exploding πŸ˜‚ Earlier on my boobs & nipples were very very sore and the normal bras hurt so I wore bralettes all day instead. It really was a boob saver.

I think this is the Y back midi lace bralette in size L (WOOO) and the padded double strappy bralette. SO PRETTY #ourbraletteclub

I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!! 😍

Bra is 38D and panties are XL 😁 Sure can wear πŸ˜‚

Thank you so much @braintango you're really super super sweet 😭 I have enough bralettes to last me for a whole year now πŸ˜‚

Just opened one huge pack of bralettes that came when I was still in London. Told my mum not to wash it till I came home. Some bought, but a lot generously given by Chow.

I just tried the Here For You bralette. IT IS SO FREAKING COMFORTABLE and fits SO WELL.

Going to do major washing so I can ditch all my old tight bras and wear all these comfy bralettes πŸ˜‚

I've started taking prenatal vitamins and DHA now and have stopped with folic acid. Thank goodness the DHA doesn't have a smell at all like how when you take cod liver oil/omega 3 soft gels and the smell repeats on you when you burp 🀒 So awful.

My stomach still bloats like a balloon every night. The gas is always on the upper right side and I feel so uncomfortable. That day I sent a picture of my distended gassy belly to my friends and they were super shocked because I looked like I was 6 months pregnant. It's THAT BAD. But in the morning it flattens out so much.

I think I should buy some oil and gosok minyak. It will probably work because my granny used to rub ginger oil for us when we had kembong and it works all the time.

My mum tried looking for nutmeg oil at the market but couldn't find it. We're going out again to look for it later because I cannot take the gassiness at night anymore 😭

I don't know why my mother still carries such a big comb out. I was speechless when she pulled it out from her handbag.

Mother was very upset cause she wanted to eat her almond chocolate churros but the shop was closedπŸ˜‚ Or maybe the person went for toilet break but we couldn't wait because my father was 1 minute away from picking us.

Went shopping at Uniqlo and managed to get some bottoms. So happy cause none of my old shorts fit me unless I lose 10kg.

These are something like culottes but more PJs version which I like because it's super thin and the elastic band is so stretchy!!!

The Mickey Mouse edition one is super cute!!! Couldn't say no to it πŸ˜‚

Bought this more "mature" one, doesn't look thaaaat pajamas so I can go to the mall wearing this πŸ˜‚

It costs $14.90, very very reasonable to me.

My mother and I were too busy having fun that WE FORGOT TO BUY OIL 🀦🏻‍♀️ I'm going to suffer again tonight πŸ˜‚

I've also gone to 2 PLCs, one at White Sands and one at TM to look for a water bowl for Sandy. It seems like all the bowls are only suitable for chihuahuas πŸ˜‚ The slightly bigger bowls are too shallow and this Sandy is actually a camel so it won't be enough especially if we're out the whole day and there's no one to fill her bowl up.

So my mother offered the big bowl that she uses to wash veggies in but cannot, not stable enough especially since Sandy is so chor lor πŸ˜‚

Since the weather was so cool, we all went to 85 for dinner. Seems like the whole of Singapore had the same thinking as us πŸ˜‚

So happy I could eat chicken satay

A bit of ou luak

And meatballs πŸ˜‚

But I couldn't eat chicken wingsπŸ˜’

I'm saved by my cousin in law πŸ˜‚ RU YI YOU!!! I hope it really works.
