Easy Way To Make Korean Pancake

I have been watching K-dramas since the Movement Control Order started.  I am now into my 5th drama.  Every drama features yummy Korean foods that our favorite stars eat and that made me crave for some Korean street food.  Since missy loves the Korean pancake (Pa Jeon), I decided to make some for her.  I found the recipe from an online website (sorry I couldn’t link as I have forgotten where I saw it).

Recipe

  • Scallions
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Some water
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 large peeled garlic clove
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

Instructions from the website

  1. Combine the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan set over medium heat. Allow the mixture to come to a boil, then give it a good stir and turn the heat down to medium-low. Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, until slightly reduced and thickened.
  2. Slice the scallion into 1-inch pieces.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, sugar, and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the egg and grated garlic. Add some water. Stir gently with a spatula until just combine. Add in scallions.
  4. Heat two tablespoons of the vegetable oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot and shimmering, pour in half of the batter and use the spatula to spread the batter out toward the edges of the pan.
  5. Fry for 4 to 5 minutes, until the pancake is golden brown and the vegetables are lightly charred. Flip and cook another 4 to 5 minutes on the other side.
  6. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan and repeat the process with the second half of the batter and veggies. Slice the cooked pancakes into pieces and serve.

Stay Safe Everybody!

The Covid-19 cases are on the rise and we have breached the 3-figure mark.  The positive cases this week were even higher than in March when we were on lockdown.  This is worrying eventhough the Prime Minister said everything is under control.  There are new cases popping up every day.  All we can do is to continue practicing social-distancing and washing / sanitizing our hands.  It is best that everyone stays at home if they have nothing urgent that needs going out.

I guess I would have to take a break from going outdoor for exercise now.  No more going to the park or cycling.  Boo hoo!

Stay safe everyone!

Keto Chocolate Sorbet From Kind Kones

Recently when I was in Bangsar Village for dinner, I saw Kind Kones’ store right outside MPH Bookstore. I have heard of its keto ice-cream but have not got the chance to try it.  Right after dinner at Village Roast Duck, we segued to Kind Kones for some dessert.  I ordered the Keto Chocolate Sorbet while missy ordered the Salted Caramel Macadamia Ice Cream.

I am surprised that the Keto Chocolate Ice Cream is so tasty, just like the regular ice-cream although it uses xylitol (sugar replacement) instead of normal sugar. It is so creamy and I can feel myself salivating as I type this post.   My family tried it too and they like it as well.  Usually, they steer clear of keto food because according to them, it tastes bland *chuckle*

This keto-friendly chocolate ice-cream is made of cocoa power, cocoa mass, xylitol.  Give it a try if you happen to see a Kind Kones stall.

The Best Shampoo You Can Buy For Oily Hair

My hair is thin and oily.  If I wash my hair in the morning, my hair would start to get limpy by 7pm because of the oil.  That’s how oily it can get.  I do not like washing my hair daily because it loses its shape quickly.   My sister told me about Kerasys Deep Cleansing  Shampoo which is for people with oily scalp and it is also anti-dandruff.  I must say that this shampoo is just right for me.  It controls the oil on my scalp and my hair won’t get oily so fast.

I love Kerasys Deep Cleaning Shampoo and it is the only one that I am using since 3 years ago.  I usually buy it from Watsons and I am not sure where else you can buy them.  So if you have oily scalp and have been searching for the right shampoo to control the oil, give Kerasys Deep Cleaning Shampoo a try.

Gifts For Her

Buying something for that special lady may be hard for most men. No matter the occasion, there is a lot of pressure to make sure you get the perfect thing. If you’re struggling to come up with a gift, here a few ideas and woman is sure to love.

Flowers

Giving flowers to your loved one is an age-old tradition that never seems to go out of style. There is something special about brightening their day with the colors of a vivid bouquet. While some may think this irrelevant because the plants will die, there are several ways one can preserve flowers. This allows them to be used for other things, as well as make them last forever.

Jewelry

Few women would tell you they don’t like jewels and shiny things. A new piece of jewelry is a great idea for those who are looking for that perfect gift. There are so many different brands and styles that you can find a piece with a clear message or design a unique, personal thing. If collecting various pieces is somewhat of a tradition for gift-giving, you could also get her things that will help with them. For instance, jewelry drawer organizers and cleaning solutions are perfect for those trying to keep their collections clean and coordinated.

Clothes

Almost everyone has heard the uttered moan of a woman saying that she has nothing to wear. While this may not be entirely true, in her mind she really believes it. Freshen up her wardrobe by getting her a few new outfits, or if you’re not sure what exactly to buy, take her out on a shopping spree. Giving her the gift of clothes is often a well-loved gesture that won’t be unliked.

Don’t stress out about getting your girl a special gift. You can be sure to get her the perfect things if you put a little bit of thought and preparation into it.
