2014 Formula1 Singapore Grand Prix - Mayday 五月天

The hubby surprised me, yet again, with two tickets to the Friday's F1 Singapore Grand Prix. Surprise surprise. But as it was a school day for him, we can only reach the venue a little after 10pm.



Lots of people were already there, and the fan zone was already full from Mayday's fans. We stood quite far away from the stage, but still managed to catch glimpses of the stage, though I am unable to see clearly what or who is on the stage. Lucky for the huge projection screen.



The night was high! And sweating hot! Halfway through my back and legs were already tired from standing. I had loads of fun. Singing along, listening to them live. But poor hubby, who is not a total fan, has to endure the 1 hour 40 minutes standing and sweating along with the rest of us.

They sang a total of 19 songs! So happy!

Week 38

I'm at my final two weeks! After such a long wait, we are so near our goal. I'm really excited and looking forward to welcome our LO. 

It is a waiting game now. I wonder when will be the day that our little boss decides to meet us. Looking forward...

As the time draws nearer to my due date, there are still many things not done yet. At least my hospital bag has been packed. Although... There are lots of things that requires to be added in last minute, like mobile charger.. I still need to use it now. And the prenatal record book, I still need it for my gynae appointment.

Congrats to Mr and Mrs Ong

A dear GF had just been promoted from single hood to the wife of a very doting guy. The other GFs and I are very happy for her. A step into eternal happiness.

Her wedding lunch was held in Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium's banquet hall. The couple look lovely and happy together. And I learnt a new term for MIL & FIL.. 新爸爸,新妈妈. Mr Ong is so cute.


The wedding favours. The wedding piggies are so cute. But I only got the groom.. Poor piggie groom. His wife went to a different home. LOL.


A toast to the beautiful couple and to our friendship.


Maternity Photoshoot

We had bought a package for Newborn photoshoot for the LO, but it does not include the bump photos. With so much time on had, online shopping had been one of the favourite past time. And I had bought a groupon deal for a maternity photoshoot. It consists of a 90 minutes photoshoot with 5 edited softcopies for $25 by ChubbyFeet.

Prepared some props for the photoshoot, which we did use, but the photographer's main aim was the bump and my fatigue face. LOL and to make things worse, I did not put on any makeup.

** Will update again when I receive the softcopy, which I should receive in a week's time. I can't wait.

Home photoshoot

Just had a mini photoshoot done at home. It was pretty fun, and I am looking forward to preview the photos taken. Stay tuned =D


2014 Formula1 Singapore Grand Prix

So happy! So surprised. I thought that I would be missing out on their F1 concert today. But the hubby had these passes placed on my table last night. Happy!!


Cavalia

The hubby gave me another surprise yesterday. First surprise was the staycation at Hard Rock Hotel Singapore last month. Now, a trip to watch Cavalia, a circus show featuring lots of handsome horses.


Our show was supposed to be the last Singapore show, but they had extended their shows till 5th October 2014. And it seems that for our seats' category, it is a little cheaper for the extended shows. Ahh.. Lugi. LOL.

Nevertheless, it was a great show. Exciting, interesting and beautiful. I like the second half more. At the start of the show, they had this "interactive" quiz, which many participated. Interesting.


The only downside is that we had to climb 50 steps up to our seats, there is only one container for the male toilet (not that it affects me LOL), vs 3 containers for the female toilets, and the food and drinks were pretty expensive. We spent $15 for a bottle of plain water, a bottle of Mug rootbeer and one pack of popcorn.

Heartburn

I had my first heartburn throughout my pregnancy. And boy am I glad this was the only time. The feeling was TERRIBLE. I kept burping my dinner the whole night and up till when it was bed time, the moment I lie down, I want to vomit. It lasted about an hour before I decided to do something about it. It was too terrible to tolerate.


I remembered that one of the goodies bag I took had some heartburn relieve samples and went to dig for it. It's a liquid sachet form of heartburn relief from Gaviscon. I am glad for this. I felt better sometime after taking it.

So what is heartburn? Heartburn is a symptom created by acid reflux, which results in the diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) if it persists and happens more than twice a week. It is a very common symptom described by an internal burning pain felt around the lower chest area.

Heartburn is felt when stomach acid flows back up into the food pipe - the gullet, down which food moves from the mouth to the stomach.

Breakfast with love

Thank you hubby.

LO at 35 weeks 2 days

LO is 35 weeks 2 days yesterday, and we had an appointment with Dr Khoo to meet our LO. It has been a long 5 weeks from the last appointment. I was banned from fast food, icecream and durians from the last appointment and I had been pretty controlled.

According to Dr Khoo, LO weighs 2.65kg at 35 weeks 2 days, which is a healthy weight. On average, at 35 weeks LO should weigh 2.6kg. I had wanted to find reference online to support this, but it seems that the average weight for 35 weeks is 2.38kg instead. Hmm..
Nevertheless, Dr says LO is growing well and weighs healthily, I shall just listen to him. 
My dear little one. In just another 32 days, Daddy and Mummy would be able to see you. We are looking forward. Stay strong and healthy. We love you. 

I had also done the Strep B test. Results will be known in 2 days. Group B streptococcus — also called group B strep — is a common bacterium often carried in the intestines or lower genital tract. Although group B strep is usually harmless in adul…

Snow Skin Mooncake

It's the Mid Autumn Festival today! Time for lanterns, candles, sparkles, mooncakes and the big, round and bright moon.


Following our traditional baked mooncakes, little sister and I went on to make snow skin mooncakes during the weekends. We decided to make two flavors and we had 51 mooncakes in total at the end of the day. Both of us were spent at the end with serious back ache. Haha..


With the remaining of our colored dough, we combined them and made ONE colorful Doraemon snow skin white lotus mooncake. The effect looks good. I was saying to my sister that we should just make colorful ones next year.


Based on the feedback, I think we were quite successful. Her colleagues love it, and even my father and brother who are usually wet blankets in our baking or creations, said that it's nice. Yippie!

Staycation at Hard Rock Hotel Singapore at RWS - Part 2

During our short staycation at Hard Rock Singapore, we went and did the following things apart from just sleeping and slacking in the hotel. Heehee..

Day 1
Since half the day was already gone from travelling to the destination and checking in then resting in room, we had arranged to catch a movie at VivoCity. Our last movie was 4 months ago, X-men: Days of the Future Past. We do not watch alot of movies together even before we got married. We feel that watching movies minimises our interaction time. So we only go for those blockbuster once in a while (or when there are free or promotional tickets =P).


We caught the evening 7.25pm show for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Got a popcorn set and snacked while watching. Even though we just had dinner, we were able to finish the entire box of popcorn. Sighs.. Junk food. Haha..

The movie was great, with lots of funny bits. We laughed alot. They really are just kids. Young teenagers. Haha...


Day 2
After breakfast at the hotel, we headed to Univ…

Staycation at Hard Rock Hotel Singapore at RWS - Part 1

My secret staycation is finally here. I think I waited about 2 months since the day the hubby asked me to keep the 3 days free. Hint was a rock picture. And I guessed Hard Rock Hotel. Of course, no confirmation was given, so I had to wait patiently.

And I'm not dumb after all. I so smart! Haha...


After checking in, we took this bejeweled lift up to our room. We are staying on the highest level. By the way, the whole place looks dark. From the lobby, to the lifts and to the corridors. Reminded me of Hard Rock Hotel in Macau (though we did not stay there). I guess that's the image they wanna portray.


And here's our room! Looks nice and comfy. Though it's a little weird to have three other guys in the room with us. Love the feeling of the room. By the way, on the left side of the king sized bed, there is a pull out bed for a third person (that is chargeable for the stay).


The divider for the room and toilet is semi opaque. The lights are part of the dressing mirror. Good …

Nutella Oreo Brownies

PS. Sorry for the lousy photos. I made these at night and the lighting was bad. 

I was going to a girlfriend's mini housewarming the next day, I had decided to make some desserts since she was cooking. With not alot of ingredients at home, I decided to make Nutella Oreo Brownies.


I had made Nutella Brownies the other time, this time, I added in Oreo cookie.


To be honest, I love it. Nutella Oreo Brownie taste simply delicious. I believe young kids would love this. And maybe with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it would taste even better. The brownie taste nicer when it's freshly out from the oven. It still taste nice over night, but the freshly baked crunchiness and warmth adds points to the taste.
