Ruby Konnyaku Jelly (No artificial/food colouring) | Make Halloween Jelly with Konnyaku Jelly Powder

September 24th, 2020 · Nobody Surrendered

If you are looking for some Halloween food idea, you can try this out. Well… It was not supposed to turn out this way but it did! It looks like blood cubes. You know… Especially for the ladies… You know what I meant. *LOL*

If you have other dried fruit tea, use them, you don’t need to use other food colouring and flavouring. I would suggest to filter out the dried fruit by pouring it through a colander, just get the colour and flavour is good enough.

Happy trying!

Let’s Cook Easily Prepared Meals, Instant Couscous and Ipoh Salt Baked Chicken

September 14th, 2020 · Nobody Surrendered

It’s pretty fun to play with some instant food. These are the recent ones that I managed to try out.

I got Ainsley Harriott Instant Couscous from the UK. My sis brought it back during Chinese New Year. I finally cooked it few months back during CMCO when I was too lazy to prepare anything to cook. Since I was home alone, I managed to make an ASMR video out of it. It’s my first time eating couscous. It’s quite salty for me. As for the texture… I would say that it’s an acquired texture. Feel quite weird haha…

The next one is Wan Li Xiang Ipoh Salt Baked Dang Gui Chicken that we bought from Loong Kee. I don’t remember how much was it. Should be below RM40. It’s rock solid and you need to defrost it for at least 4 hours. Preparations is simple and quick. Just follow the instructions on the packaging. However, I did not follow what’s stated, I used AMC cookware instead. Check out the video to see how to do it with AMC cookware. Oh… I don’t sell this cookware, I’m just a user, it’s our primary cookware at home.

Hope you enjoy the videos. Thank you for your support ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Birthday to Me 2020

September 7th, 2020 · Nobody Surrendered

Hahaha… Forgot to make a birthday post on 4th September hahaha… It’s late but only few days late. So… It’s another year… One year older… 38… Gasp… Seriously… How time flies?!?! The year, 2020, has just gone by like this… Nothing much done due to the unexpected pandemic. One thing for sure, flying car is still far-fetched, so does LRT ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh well… Nothing interesting happening in my life too, just same-old same-old. That is good enough, peaceful, no need to worry about anything, I don’t like surprises.

I've lost track of my age since I'm in my 30's ๐Ÿ˜‚ I need to do some math for it every single time when people ask about my age. Nearing 4 some more, gasp… ๐Ÿ˜… .

Malaysia RMCO Extended to 31st December 2020

September 1st, 2020 · Nobody Surrendered

So… It’s September, we are still in RMCO. It’s supposed to end on 31st August 2020 but our PM announced that it will be extended until 31st December 2020. There goes our 2020… Down the drain… Who would expect that your 2020 will be staying at home without flying cars or LRT? ๐Ÿ˜€ Whatever it is, continue to stay safe and stay healthy.

I’ve started to do some videos with my Canon IXUS 285 HS that I bought in 2018 after having it sitting there doing nothing after my Osaka trip last year. I have two playlists for it, one is about any video that I could record and upload without editing while the other one is video of cloud with relaxing or calming music. Here’s the playlists:

Just a quick short post this time. I’m slacking… Can’t believe it’s September already… Gonna be one year older… Can time slow down? Anyway, just hope to see things improve and hope that we can go back to our normal life.

Salted Caramel Bread Popcorn, First Attempt, Air Fryer Saved the Day!

August 23rd, 2020 · Nobody Surrendered

Tried to make caramel bread popcorn after seeing it everywhere on TikTok and friends were making it too. I decided to add salt to the caramel because I prefer salted caramel to caramel. To make your life easier, just buy croutons and make the caramel or use an air fryer or oven to dry the bread cubes. Toasting them in a pan is just too time consuming and messy with all the crumbs.

Ingredients and instructions:
1. Bread cut into cube (any bread you like, I did not count/measure the quantity, I just used whatever was left).
2. Toast them until crispy with a pan or air fryer(110ยฐC for 10-15 minutes, constantly check on them from time to time so that you don’t burn them).
3. Melt 6 Tbsp Sugar and 2 Tbsp Water over medium heat, do not stir until it’s bubbling.
4. Add 2 Tbsp Butter and 1 Tsp Salt. Continue stirring until golden brown.
5.Once it turned golden brown, immediately remove it from the heat source if not you will end up with bitter caramel. (My caramel was overcooked in the video…)
6. Add in the bread cubes aka croutons into the pan with salted caramel, stir quickly while the caramel is still hot.
7. Spread them on greased paper to cool and dry.
8. Store in air tight container. Line the container with greased paper NOT kitchen towel!
