Baking milo biscuits for the first time

My recipe for milo biscuits
Ingredients:
1. 227g butter
2. 240g self raising flour
3. 25g corn flour
4. 100g milo powder (from tin/refill pack)
5. 2 tablespoon brown sugar
6. 1 egg
7. 25g milk powder
Steps:
1. Preheat the oven at 140 degrees celsius.
2. Cream the butter  and milo together for 3 mins under slow speed. Be careful the powder will fly everywhere
3. Add in the beaten egg.
4. Add in sugar.
5. Add in the sifted flour, milk powder and corn flour and stir with spatula to combine
6. Put on baking tray lined with parchment/baking paper.
7. Bake for 40mins under 140 degrees. Baking time varies depending on your oven make.
8. Take out and leave tray to cool on cooling rack.
9. Store in air tight container. 






Note: this recipe can bake 2 trays of cookies depending on your oven size. 
Optional: add in chocolate chips.


I was wondering if I should let it bake longer or increase temp since inside still a bit uncooked. Or perhaps just make v thin layer so it can cook properly.

Gave birth via C-sect! 5 weeks old Baby J.

Gave birth more than 1 month ago @ Gleneagles via emergency C section because baby's umbilical cord was cord around her neck, causing her distress. She had an unstable heartbeat that went up to a high 200 and a low 80 at times. There wasn't much contractions and the cervix wasn't open.

Here's a cute Baby J at 4 weeks old... I think my darling is such a photogenic baby. I am grateful to have such a wondrous gift!

By the way, those are interested to try ageloc R2, pls contact me by leaving me your contact numbers or email asap as I have 6 sets left to clear at attractively low prices.

My baby girl is 21 weeks and 1 day old now.

Sorry, didn't update blog because I was not feeling very well and was very busy with work.

Good news! I am pregnant!
After close to 6 years of marriage... I will be delivering in another 19 weeks. This is my baby girl at week 13... Her gender was only disclosed last week after I visited my gynae, Dr Peter Chew at Gleneagles Medical Centre.

My baby girl is 21 weeks and 1 day old now. Hey, honestly, I don't mind if you sponsor some baby items (clothes, car seats, cot, milk pump, milk bags, milk bottles, etc), I can help you advertise your company's products on my blog! Just drop me a message or leave a comment!


My baby has a sharp chin at week 13! So shy, we couldn't see her gender then when she closed her legs.

I have been receiving a lot of emails and calls regarding TRA and ageloc. I bought 6 sets of ageloc upon its launch and now I have 2 sets of 10 left. Some I gave/ sold to friends an some my Hubby and I consumed rigorously before my pregnancy. If you want to try, maybe you can contact me by emailing me  (jennpoh@gmail.com) with your contact details. I have been taking ageloc after I finished my TRA programme, all the way till I knew I was pregnant in late March. I have stopped taking as my gynae prescribed me lots of supplements, too many I cannot keep track plus I had cough and flu. Honestly, ageloc is very useful to give energy boost and some say improve vitality. 


This is me last year after losing weight (wearing wig. lol). now I have gained weight due to pregnancy.




Recently, I discovered I had anaemia and last week, I was diagnosed as having gestational diabetes (GD). They say if you have a history of diabetes in the family, you will have a higher chance of getting. Plus I had PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) so maybe that also increases the chances of getting GD. I thought my world was crashing down but I guess this is not the worse.  consuming some half cup of orange juice with my liquid iron supplement (spatone). I put on 10kg in 20 weeks.

I have thought that being pregnant, I should eat more. However, this is not supposed to be right. I have been eating lots of carbohdyrates andI stopped taking lots of vegetables. I feel very lethargic and often had terribly swollen feet. With the gyane's recommended diet, I managed to keep my blood sugar down but I feel very tired and look pale... 

With my friend's help, my hubby bought me a glucose meter to track my blood sugar yesterday. 

2hrs after eating, I got 4.7... means I might not have eaten enough.


It was so difficult to test and I wasted 2 strips before I got it right. I pricked myself more than 4 times on my little finger and the starting process was so tedious and so time consuming. Even now, I feel that the glucose meter is too fast for me to test my blood. Every time must prick at least twice to get blood. Not sure if it got to do with me having quite a low blood pressure.

Now, that I am diagnosed with gestational diabetes, I realised that my 3333 programme (from TRA) should have been continued.  I can do better if I can control my diet.I have lost at least 1.5 kg in less than a week but my blood sugar level is still ok.. 

Most importantly, my baby girl must be alright!

Genneva raided and our money gone.

http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/singapore/story/raids-gold-trader-singapore-malaysia-20121002

We invested quite a sum in Genneva after our trip to China, we got to know a gold trader agent. In fact, few weeks ago, he asked us and took our gold and told us Genneva wanted to check if the gold was genuine or not. Until now, we didn't hear anything from him despite attempts to contact him. We gave him the gold on the basis of trust.
And we not only lost one 100g gold piece to their treachery, we were also unable to cash in on our past purchases and interest which was due yesterday, making a loss of more than 15k.

Feel very upset our savings gone.
