Lesssaltchallenge Day 6 / Random Saturday Night Stuff

Dear Dayre,

Saturday rehearsal overrrr! πŸ’ͺ🏻
I didn't have time to update yesterday because I was busyyyyyy with other stuff!!

So here's my #lesssaltdiet lunch from yesterday:

Lunch: Steamed Teochew fish with tofu, stir-fry chap chaye and cherry tomatoes!

The fish was so tasty 😁 But the portion didn't really make me full πŸ˜‚

Dinner: Fuyong Omelette with lotus root, baby corn and dates!

I like omelette a lot but as this is a no sodium omelette, you can imagine that it's totally not salty at all! Good thing it was chock full of ingredients like onion and red pepper to give it more flavour!

It also made me realise that salty is not the only flavour that exists hahaha food doesn't have to be salty to be flavorful, but somehow salty food has an extra kick I cannot deny!

Back home after rehearsal and lying in bed right now on my Tencel bedsheets that I spent $200++ on but is worth every single cent because they are so comfy I don't ever wanna get up!!! 😍😍😍

I bought the bedsheets on discount at Metro Singapore that time and the original price was like $400 or something so it was quite a steal ✨ *auntie mode on*

Recently I've been contemplating over my hair and whether to keep my bangs short or slowly grow them out cuz they're getting pretty long right now..

Bangs are definitely younger and cuter. But now that my hair is so short, the bangs do look a tad kiddish hor

My hair at its shortest when I just trimmed it to a short bob. Now it's longer liao~

If I grow out my fringe it will look more like this! (Swept my hair over to cover the shortish fringe ahaha)

Benefits of having long fringe: makes my face look smaller. LOL.

Benefits of having short bangs: makes me look younger.

Which one more important πŸ˜‚

Or grow out my hair totally but I think I'm not ready to give up short hair yet! My short hair still can tie somemore. Not too bad.

Don't mind me just having lazy Saturday night doing nothing and with random thoughts in my head πŸ˜‚

Hubs is outside with some colleagues so I'm just enjoying my alone time and Dayre-ing away 😁

Anyways, today's lesssaltdiet lunch was soooo good!!!

In fact, both meals today were really yummy to me!

Lunch was shepherds pie with spinach, caramelized banana (!!!!!!!) and home-made baked cashew nuts!

It was very tasty, and I guess the only negative comment I have is that the potato in the shepherds pie wasn't salty and was on the dry side so not as shiok πŸ˜‚ But this is a NO SALT healthy meal which is really amazing already!

Dinner was paprika chicken meatballs (made from scratch without flour!), watercress with goji berries, mashed sweet potatoes and grapes!

Super nice!

Only the watercress was rather tough and again bland without salt. I've always thought I loved vegetables but I realized that the kind of cooked vegetables dishes that I eat mostly all have a lot of sodium in them and maybe that's why I like them πŸ˜‚

I love the mash sweet potato! It's so filling and full of natural sweetness!

I was greedy and also worried that I wouldn't be satiated after dinner so I ate two golden kiwis as well as some almonds and now I'm very full πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Well I'm not really looking to lose a lot of weight, just wanna sort of try healthier eating and see what it does for me!! 😁

Today is day 6 already, so quickly I'm halfway through the lesssaltdiet program!!! Makes me realise how easy it is to be stuffing yourself with food all the time and not noticing it.

Now lying in bed and feeling very excited for tomorrow πŸ˜‚ Because we are having a special TVD shoot for our new bridesmaid design ANDDDD I'm also gonna be "modelling" together with @cherriwong and her girlfriend Kelly!

You know how apprehensive I feel about being in front of the camera πŸ™ˆ The answer is IM SUPER SELF-CONSCIOUS AND INSECURE 😭 In front of professional cameras! If it's my own camera it's ok. But if other ppl camera I really very self-conscious one.

Somemore this irritating @cherriwong is SO TALL AND SKINNY I'm going to look terrible next to her.

But it being a bridesmaid design I think the "feel" would be so much better with girls of different heights and sizes showing the dresses off! Yes? ☺️

And I'm also very very hyped up for tomorrow's shoot because I managed to have everything fall in place so nicely πŸ™πŸ» I only planned the shoot with two days notice (shortcomings of an ESFP HAHA if you didn't read my previous Dayre entry) but thanks to all the amazing people around me, I'm all set and prepared for tomorrow!!!!

@merryloveweddings will be styling our set for shoot which makes me triple excited. I LOVE Suying's incredible styling and I can't wait to see the set tomorrow!!!

Thanks to grace from the Almighty, I managed to find a florist who'll be creating our bouquets for tomorrow's shoot: @terratheflorist on IG! The kind people there agreed readily with just one day's notice 😭😭😭 Can you feel how grateful I am??

Can't wait for @mariemjsoh and team to doll myself and the girls up too for tmr.. Another gem in my life and always ready to help 😘 Love you Marie!!!

Our long-time TVD photographer Nic is also going to be behind the lens so I'll feel less awkward πŸ˜†

Give you girls a sneak peek of the new dress… 😍😍😍😍😍

One of the reasons why I'm looking into expanding TVD's bridesmaids range is cos when I was doing my wedding planning, I realized HOW HARD it is to find good quality, pretty and affordable bridesmaid designs in the market!!

Trust me, I've seen my share of hideous bridesmaid dresses. And they don't even come cheap!! Which is such a huge pity.

So I'm hoping we can help to fill up that void in the market for pretty and good quality bridesmaids apparel! 😍

In fact, we made our Arianna dress from XS to XL for Restocks because of the demand for a large range of sizes! And I'm really happy to be able to cater to as many sizes as possible!

Praying that tomorrow's shoot will go smoothly without a hitch πŸ™πŸ» And that the photos turn out gorgeous!! With so much love and effort from so many people, I'm so sure that it will be amazing!!!

All fingers crossed for best kind of weather tomorrow afternoon too.

I really can't wait ☺️

By the way, I'm in love with IG's new portrait/landscape mode leh!!!!! Hahahahah GOODBYE SQUARES!! My online life will never be fettered by the need to be square ever again. Except on Dayre.

Can't remember how many times I spent agonizing over how best to crop a super nice landscape or portrait photo into a square!!

Now don't need to care liao!
