Facebook Avatar Is So Much Fun

Not too long ago, September 15th to be exact, Facebook finally rolled out the Avatar app for its users in this part of the world.  I know that Facebook users in North America were already creating their avatars back in May 2020.   I was so happy to see it finally arriving at our shore.  

This was what I created :-

I think this is my style – red lipstick, black top and gold chunky necklace.  Wish there is another pair of pants that I can choose and also a different pair of shoes because these 2 are not what I would wear *chuckle*.

Then I decided to give my hair a makeover last Saturday and I remember that I have to change my Facebook Avatar too so here is my new look.  

This is almost 90% similar to how I look like.  My friends commented that I do look exactly like my avatar *chuckle*  It is just too much fun.  Have you tried out this app?

The Best Therapy For Me

Besides surrounded by nature, the next thing that helps me cope with stress is shopping.  Nothing feels as good as retail therapy.  According to studies, shopping can help people live a healthier life as it reduces blood pressure.  Many people consider shopping to be the best remedy for mental stress relief.  Who doesn’t like shopping eh?

My mood becomes better after some shopping and with the current pandemic, I don’t go to the shopping malls anymore.  I hardly shop online too so just where do I have my retail therapy?  Well there is a stall at the market in my neighbourhood that sells stock overrun from factories in Bangladesh.  This stall owner brings in huge cartons of clothes from factories that produce clothing for brand names like H&M, Monki, Next, Zara, American Eagle and Mango.  These clothes are 100% original and brand new.

I have been buying clothes from this stall since last year.  Best of all, these clothes are so affordable.  I even became personal shoppers for my friends. Good deals must be shared right?  Check out what I have been buying for missy below.

High rise distressed denim from H&M (RM25)

H&M T-shirts for RM8 each

Corduroy skirt jumpsuit from American Eagle (RM28)

T-shirts from H&M, Cheap Monday and Zara (RM8) each

More T-shirts from Cotton On, Monki and Zara

T-shirts from Forever 21 and H&M

Another pair of denim (RM25)

The above are just some of the clothes that I bought for missy.  There are a lot more *chuckle*.  I cannot resist buying for her because they are so cheap. Missy has already told me to stop buying but I just can’t help it.  Usually I would buy without her knowing and after washing and ironing them, I would sneak into her room and put them in the closet.  Her school allows students to wear casual clothes every Tuesday and Thursday so when  she opens her closet  to pick out an outfit, she will see the new clothes. Once in a while she will ask me if this jeans or tee is new and why she hasn’t seen it before *chuckle*  Sometimes I would tell her that I have bought them a while back but she wasn’t aware.  A little white lie is ok sometimes.

The clothes are really irresistible and I would buy for my sister, my friends and their kids and of course for myself.  Next I will take photos of the sweaters and hoodies which I bought.  These hoodies were selling at RM80 / RM100 at H&M but I only paid RM28 for them. What a steal!  Where can you find quality and branded clothes at such affordable prices?

How To Make Your Own Steamboat At Home With Hai Di Lao Soup Base

My family loves steamboat and we usually have this like twice a month.  Sometimes I would make the steamboat soup by boiling pork bones.  That makes the soup very sweet and tasty.  Recently I have been buying the Hai Di Lao Hot Pot Seasoning from the morning market near my area to make the soup base.

Recommended by the seller to try this Shrimp Soup Hot Pot Seasoning.  It has a sourish flavour which is very appetizing.

Just boil a pot of water and add in the Hai Di Lao Hot Pot Seasoning once the water is boiled.  For our steamboat ingredients, we have cabbage, meat balls, tofu, enoki, beancurd, sausages and meat slices.  It is best to have during the rainy nights.

The Hai Di Lao Soup Base comes in many flavors such as spicy, clear broth, mushroom, tomatoes and many more.  Give it a try if you like steamboat because it is so convenient to cook.

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.
