3rd Trimester Update

So I had the dreaded OGTT (Oral Glucose Tolerance Test) last week which thank goodness, turned out fine. I also had a CAS (Congenital Anomaly Scan) done and it looked good. I had to get an HBT (Liver-Biliary) scan though because of abdominal pain, but it came back normal. Who knew gas could be so excruciating? My back hurts a lot as well, I can't sleep at all, I'm always tired, and sometimes, I can't even breathe. I pee every 5 minutes, I'm hungry all the time, and as you can see, my belly button has stuck out (and quite obscenely too, if I may add). My face is now like that of a teenage boy's - oily and pimply, and from size 0, I am rapidly getting closer and closer to becoming a size 4. But other than those, I really thank God that we're fine and that we've made it this far and that I'm fortunate enough to have had a pretty uneventful pregnancy so far.

Resto love (?): Tim Ho Wan

We're early for my congenital anomaly scan appointment so the hubs and I decided to drop by Tim Ho Wan to see what all the fuss was about. We didn't have to wait in line to be seated (thank goodness!), but the restaurant filled up very quickly and it was only half past ten. Anyway, here's what we ordered.

So I like the baked buns, they're soft, kind of flaky, and the barbecued pork inside is really yummy. The har gow and siomai are OK too, I guess. Though I'd say I like King Bee Restaurant's selection of dimsums and fresh chili sauce better. I didn't care much for the rice topping, the beef looked to me like steak tartare and it tasted nothing out of the ordinary. Their pricing is really cheap for a Michelin star restaurant but all in all, I don't really think they're worth lining up for, just another one of those places I can cross off my list.
