Memorable Scene From Crash Landing On You K-Drama

Are you a K-drama fan?  If you are, I am pretty sure that you have watched the highly popular Crash Landing On You which stars Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin.  I have watched this drama like 6 times.  Yes, I am crazy like that because I can’t seem to get over those swoon-worthy scenes.   This is the first K-drama I have watched.  It was during the first lockdown back in March 2o20 that I spent my days binge-watching it.  Right after my first K-drama, there was no turning back.  I have been ‘Kimchified’.

Ok, back to Crash Landing On You.  There was one scene where Yoon Se-Ri was talking to the soldiers in Rhi Jeong Yeok Shi’s house and couldn’t stop munching on a snack.  According to the subtitles, that snack is Scorched Rice with Sugar and it is called Nurungji in Korean.   Yoon Se-Ri said those snacks were addictive.  Nurungji is crunchy and the texture is like crackers. Below is the scene of Yoon Se-Ri tearing out small pieces of nurungji and munching them.

So one weekend when I was in Freshan, a Korean Mart at 163 Retail Park, I was thrilled to see the scorched rice for sale.   Seeing it brought me back to that special scene in Crash Landing On You.  However, I was taken aback at the price.  Can you see it?

The packet of scorched rice cost a whopping RM77.40.  Geez, I could have a rack of ribs for that price.  Pretty insane right?  Well, it’s good to know that imported scorched rice ain’t cheap.  I guess we can always make our own and you can actually get scorched rice from Claypot chicken rice *chuckle*.

Mee Maggi Murtabak On A Lazy Sunday

MCO 2.0 is here and no dining in is allowed at all restaurants.  Although this will be tough on the food industry, I think this is a good move because people can easily get infected when they are in an enclosed environment and have their masks removed when eating.  I have been cooking more at home now and on days that I run out of cooking ideas, we would order Grabfood or go to McDonald’s drive-through for our fast-food indulgence sometimes.

So over the weekend missy wanted to have mee maggi and we decided to cook the Mee Maggi Murtabak for her lunch.

Here are the ingredients:-

  • 1 packet instant noodle (keep the packet of seasoning aside)
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 large eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1 chicken/beef sausages
  1. Cook the noodles until soft and drain the water.
  2. In a bowl, add in the eggs, a little bit of noodle seasoning, chopped onion, red chilli and set aside.
  3. Then, add the noodle into the egg mixture and mix well.
  4. Divide the mixture into two portions.
  5. Add a little cooking oil into a frying pan.
  6. Coat and heat the entire pan with oil.
  7. Then, pour a portion of the noodle mixture into the pan and fry until both sides are cooked and slightly brown. Serve immediately.

Have you tried cooking mee maggi murtabak?  Missy finds it delicious.

Zus Coffee x Emila Yusof

Since the MCO 2.0 started last week, companies are required to follow SOP by having only 30% workforce in the office.  Thus, I will be working from home a few times a week starting today.  Decided to order my cappuccino from Zus Coffee today and this is my first order in 2021.

I was pleasantly surprise to see their new paper cup design.  It is so pretty and I love the blue and white fan shaped leaves with touches of orange.  This is Zus Coffee’s collab with  local artist — Nor Emila (IG: emilayusof). According to Zus Coffee, they are inspired by Nor Emila as a mother, a wife and a cat owner, to keep moving forward.  2020 has been a tough and challenging year for many. We all should keep our positive attitude and march forward with determination and hope.

Have you ordered your coffee from Zus?  Hurry and get your hands on this pretty paper cup. Having my favorite coffee in a lovely paper cup definitely cheered me up.

Oversized Cardigans You Need This Season

Cardigans were previously reserved for grandmothers and school librarians but fast forward today, the cardigan sweater is cooler than ever. Good news is that this season’s selection will not only keep you warm and cozy, they are chic too.

No matter the season, cardigans are the perfect transitional piece which can take you from the chilly spring morning to breezy summer night and also back to fall and winter.   For those who work in the office from 9 to 5, the cardi can keep you wrapped up when the air conditioning is too cold.  For the cold winter months, you can layer the cardigan over a turtleneck and coat for layers of warmth that is both functional and fashionable.

Some of the popular styles include the oversized cardigans to cozy full-length sweaters. Chunky oversized sweaters are having a revival.  Pair it with casual wear like denim or offset the long style with a mini dress.  This season, there are plenty of style options to choose from.  Scroll down to shop the trendy cardigans you will want to add to your shopping cart immediately.

Cable knit sweaters have always been popular for their warmth and iconic style. Pair one with flare wool trousers and ankle boots or layer a large woven version over a dress.

Get a fitted cardigan and make it your wardrobe staple.

Bold, statement-making designs are now a focal point on cozy knits. Have fun with bright colors and patterned sweaters this season.

Don’t have argyles in your sweater closet? That’s ok because you will have lots of opportunity to invest in one now.  Style it with a fitted pant or keep it fresh with eclectic mixing pieces.

Oversized knits does not have to be frumpy. Pair a slouchy grandpa-style cardigan with slim fitted jeans and a tee for the effortless low-key style or over a dress.

If you do not like layering too much, you can wear the cardigan as a top.  Celebrities like Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner have been rocking their cozy knits the same way.  To slay the look, go for fitted silhouettes, button up the top few buttons and pair with high-waisted jeans.  Perhaps wearing it as a top is not your cup of tea, then you can rock it as a dress instead.  Just make sure that your oversized cardigan is long enough and you are all set.  You can also check out some casual jackets for women at Holapick, an online fashion retail store with a wide selection of beautiful outerwear.
