Peony Jade and Goodwood Park Mooncake

As Mid-Autumn festival (中秋节) is around the corner, there are mooncake fairs at most of the local shopping malls. It is a tradition to eat mooncake on this occasion and the young will be playing with lanterns. This year, we bought traditional skin mooncake from Peony Jade and snow skin mooncake from Goodwood Park Hotel.

BAKE Cheese Tart at Ion Orchard

BAKE Cheese Tart origin from Hokkaido, Japan. They started out with Blueberry cheese tart in Japan. It look so yummy from their website. In Singapore, there is only one flavour – Cheese. They opened their first outlet in Singapore in April. The queuing time for their cheese tart is an hour or more. During their launch, some queue for 2-3 hours! Anyway, F&B trend can’t last long here, so there’s no point in queuing hours for some tarts, since I’m not the type of queuing person. Now, it is the good time to go for a try!!

3D2N Staycation at Marina Bay Sands

This is our second time staying in Marina Bay Sands (MBS). Since it’s my birthday month, my husband specially arranged for a staycation of 3 days 2 nights to celebrate. MBS has a spectacular view of the Singapore city skyline and the Gardens by the Bay. Our skyline has a lot of skyscrapers, as well as the Esplanade. This time round, we requested for a city view. Anyone visiting MBS will definitely visit the Sky Park at 57 floors to take the following amazing panorama. For hotel guest, it is free entry. We did not take any photos of the infinity pool because it is always so crowded. Luckily, the weather is very forgiving therefore we are able to stay up there for quite some time.

High Tea at The Rose Veranda, Shangri-La

One of the pastimes I enjoy the most is to try different type of cakes and tea. (It is not recommended to take too much caffeine during pregnancy, 1 cup is the limit. I use to take 4 cups a day before pregnant). Anyway, back to The Rose Veranda. It is in the 2nd level of Shangri-La hotel. The hotel is located near Orchard. It is better to visit by car or cab. They do provide shuttle bus services at fixed timing to various pick up points in Orchard. I took a cab there though. After climbing a flight of winding stairs to level 2, you will see the restaurant as below. It has a very old-school feel to it!

How I relax and prepare to sleep during pregnancy

Things can never get too easy with the big tummy around. How I manage to get myself a good nice sleep is using my favorite air purifier. There are a few things which I will do before I goes to bed each night. My alternate routine is doing prenatal exercises to prepare for delivery.

My everyday routine is:
1 drop of sweet orange + 2 drops of lavender = sleep time
