Red Bean Jelly (Mizu Yokan) 水ようかん

I was intrigued when I heard about Red Bean Jelly as I have never thought about the making it into jelly before. Red Bean has always been on the heavy side for me when it comes to dessert as it’s usually very rich and sweet. While as for jelly, I always depict it as light and refreshing, perfect dessert choice after a heavy meal. When I got to try out Mizu Yokan (Red Bean Jelly) in Japan, I was amazed! The flavor of the red bean was strong, yet it was still refreshing.

I was told that the Japanese love their jelly during the summer. Apparently, there are a few different variations of Yokan in Japan. Some would make the jelly with strained red bean paste (like I do here) to give a smoother texture, while some would add in whole soft-boiled chestnuts or use unstrained red bean paste to give texture to the jelly.

 

My experience staying at a traditional Ryokan was amazing. Make sure to check out my travel vlog where I got to try out being in the hot spring and Japanese traditional multi-course dinner, Kaiseki. This was also where I got to try out the traditional dessert, Mizu Yokan for the first time. I just had to recreate the dessert for you guys!

I couldn’t find Japanese red bean paste in Singapore, so I made it using local red bean paste that was pre-made ready for Chinese bao. Indeed, the type of paste you use here will determine the color of your jelly. I believe you will get a darker and less opaque end result if you use Japanese red bean paste. As there was higher oil content in my local red bean paste, my jelly a little different. I would highly recommend you guys to find Japanese paste for this recipe if you can. I did have to make some adjustment to the recipe to perfect it as I feel I don’t like my jelly to be too rich and too sweet. But, feel free to actually change it up to your liking! The recipe is actually very versatile. If you like your jelly to be firmer, just add a little more agar agar powder. Omit the extra sugar if you think it is too sweet. For me, it’s perfect.

Northpoint City – The most exciting food paradise of Yishun

There’s always something exciting happening at Yishun. But, this time it’s only the good that’s happening. Northpoint City now features over 100 different food outlets, you will be spoilt by the choices available when dining here. I had the pleasure of checking out some of the restaurants here with my friends and the experience was amazing! The mall was nicely decorated and the dining ambiance was lovely with its hipster-ish light bulbs.

 

 

Concretely located next to Yishun MRT Station, the mall has just opened its new South Wing. The Makan Town covers over 40,000 square feet of the South Wing’s basement, alongside with the ever so popular food court choices, Bagus also located at South Wing and Kopitiam located at North Wing. To entice and make you hungry, I will be sharing with you my experiences here at the new Northpoint City!

Northpoint City – Gyoza-ya

Japanese cuisine lovers should definitely check out Gyoza-Ya where it combines the concepts of Gyoza (Japanese dumplings) and Jya jya Men (Black Bean Noodles) together when dining. The Gyoza was handmade by their in-house master chef and taste amazingly delicious! I highly recommend you to try out their Pan-Fried Gyoza with Mentaiko Miso. It was so sinful!

They also serve sushi starting at SGD$0.80 per piece, my personal favorite got to be their Salmon Sushi, Foie Gras Sushi, and Eel Sushi.

This got me really excited! Pizza maru is one of the most symbolic pizza brands in Korea, with more than 620 stores across Korea. It is the first in Singapore here at Northpoint City and you surely will feel Korean-ish when dining here with pizzas and fried chickens.

Their premium pizzas are made with patented Green Tea Wellbeing Dough that has fermented for over 48 hours with chlorella, barley, and 12 other healthy grains. This not only serves as healthier options for us but also satisfies our cravings.

My personal favorite got to be their Mango Ocean Premium Pizza where you bite into generous chunks of mangoes accompanied with shrimps, scallops on the freshly baked healthy bread base. It was such a perfect match in heaven.

If pizza and fried chicken ain’t your thing, do not worry! PatBingSoo offers wonderful Korean food with its first-of-its-kind unique dining concept designed to make you feel like you are in one of the streets of Korea. Inspired by Myeongdong Night Market, diners will find themselves embarked on a fun and unique journey here at Northpoint City.

My personal favorite has to be their Army Stew! It was so good, the broth was flavorful and I really like the fact that they used different types of rice cakes and some of them even had sweet potato filling inside. I can see that the owner of PatBingSoo carefully curated the menu and appreciate their effort to bring Korean food closer to us.

Northpoint City – Big Fish Small Fish

I’m sure those who stay in Punggol will be familiar with Big Fish Small Fish. It was first opened as a container-style cafe in Punggol and I’m happy to say that they opened their second outlet here in Northpoint City! While the cafe tries to retain its concept by bringing in the elements of a shipping container into the mall, patrons can now seat comfortably as the place is fully air-conditioned. 

What’s good here? You should totally go for their Salmon! The fish and chips restaurant offers up to 6 types of fishes for diners to choose from. But, I’m in love with their Salmon as the meat was soft and tender, covered with a crispy fried batter on the outside! Also, did I mention that there would be free-flow of sauces for dipping!? Choose from unlimited free-flow of Cheese, Curry Mayo, and XO Mayo sauce.

Let’s give the Mexcian something to ‘taco’ ’bout!

Burrito, burrito, burrito! The humble wrap is arguably the most popular Mexican dish at Guzman Y Gomez and is now here at Northpoint City! Enjoy the authentic flavor of Mexican with a generous combination of ingredients that have been hand-picked fresh by the in-house staff when you order your very own burrito.

But if you ain’t feeling for a burrito, do not fret as you could go for their rice bowl option with all the same ingredients, without the tortilla. Perfect for anyone looking for a lighter option!

But, I got to say, when I’m here at Guzman Y Gomez I would always go for their 3-Piece Hard Shell Tacos! I do like my tortilla to be crunchy. It’s like having corn chips and tacos at the same time!

Now available at Northpoint City, Collin’s would be on almost everyone’s mind when it comes to premium Western cuisine at affordable prices. A double-award winning brand at the Singapore Prestige Brand Award 2017 for Promising Brands and Most Popular Promising Brands, it’s no wonder the hearts of many Singaporeans when it comes to dining out. I’m always intrigued by their delicious well-seasoned grills and wide-selection of seafood to choose from. 

If you ask me, I really liked their Charcoal Grilled Pork Belly! The meat was well-flavored and it was super juicy! It was very aromatic as if it was just been grilled on a traditional charcoal grill and it certainly was! What’s more, if you are feeling hungry late at night, they are opened until 12am (last order 11pm), so there’s always a reason for Collin’s!

My trip to Salon Kream has been a fruitful one! With Mucota Scena Hair Treatment, my permed curly hair is soft, smooth and silky!

Before I start talking about the hair treatment, I just want to show you guys how much I love my side right now. It looks freaking awesome! Thank you, Phyllis!

Salon Kream – Mucota Scena Hair Treatment

This is how I look before my hair treatment and perm. Often, I don’t have enough time to take good care of my hair. I usually blow dry my hair at the highest and hottest setting because I’m impatient.  Plus, I like to perm my hair every few months to maintain my hairstyle. With all those chemical and heat treatments my hair was getting, the structure of my hair has degraded as the layers that were bonded together by the cell membrane complex were severely damaged.  Those essential components help to retain moisture. Which was why the first step of Mucota Scena Hair Treatment is to prepare and restore.

Step 1: Prepare, Restore & Moisture

 

Salon Kream - Mucota Scena Hair Treatment

Salon Kream – Mucota Scena Hair Treatment

Wille started preparing by washing to cleanse and detox my hair to the original state. It helps to cleanse my dirty scalp and moisturize my dry damaged hair by neutralizing residual agents left from any previous chemical treatment that I had before.

Next, he used Essense Scalp Cream to add moisture to my hair and scalp, this restores the acidity of my hair to a more neutral level. It was relaxing as all I needed to do is to relax on the couch while he applies the essence to my head. I was also told that it protects my scalp from irritation, which was a plus point for me as I have a sensitive scalp.

Step 2: Intensive Repair

Salon Kream – Mucota Scena Hair Treatment

Once cleansing was done, I retreated back to my seat in anticipating the start of intensive repair of the treatment. Willie started the repair with a moisture base for deep hydration and restore the essential elements needed for a healthy silky hair. 

Salon Kream – Mucota Scena Hair Treatment

He then rubbed in a mixture that has Nano Keratin and Amino Acids as the key ingredients to create a net-like structure in the hair to prevent those essential elements from leaking out.

He finishes it off it with another mixture to protect and seal to prolong the treatment effect by coating the outer cuticle with a 7-layer lamellar liquid crystal, keeping the hair shiny, smooth and silky.

Step 3: Protect & Seal

Salon Kream - Mucota Scena Hair Treatment

Mist was added to allow my hair to absorb all those goodness Willie added during step 2 of the treatment. The machine had a fan built inside to assist circulation of the environment to promote the absorption.

Salon Kream – Mucota Scena Hair Treatment

After the mist, the Mucota Scena Hair Treatment was done! My hair was soft, smooth and super silky after the treatment and it lasted about 2 weeks with minimal home care. I ended my day at the salon with a light trimming by hairstylist, Phyllis. I didn’t want to cut short because I wanted to perm my hair the following month.

Laksa Cookie – Chinese New Year Recipe

Laksa Cookie

This coming Chinese New Year, I thought something adventurous while having a spicy bowl of Laksa Noodle. “Why not make some Laksa Cookie?”, I thought to myself. The next moment, I’m already sourcing for my ingredients at the supermarket!

Laksa Cookie

Laksa Cookie

Just like my Salted Egg Yolk Cookies recipe, it has tons of curry leaves to aid intense flavours of the Laksa paste. I’m perfectly fine using store-bought Laksa paste. But, I know some of you guys may be against it, feel free to use your own homemade paste. I’m not so hardworking afterall. For me, it’s all about how easy and quick to make, from kitchen to tummy.

Honey Blueberry Cheesecake with Panasonic Cubie Oven

Honey Blueberry Cheesecake - Panasonic Cubie Oven

Honey Blueberry Cheesecake – Panasonic Cubie Oven

I recently learned about steam and bake cooking method and was amazed by the result. It’s like how some recipe requires you to bake a cake in a waterbath. With the Panasonic Cubie Oven, you could do it more efficiently without the hassle and risk of burning yourself! There’s a Combi-Steam and Convection Bake setting for you to use and I would certainly say it yield you great results. Cakes baked using this setting will give you a moist and soft interior while chickens are well roasted to golden brown on the outside and still remain moist and juicy on the inside.

Honey Blueberry Cheesecake - Panasonic Cubie Oven

Honey Blueberry Cheesecake – Panasonic Cubie Oven

I wondered and told myself, “Why not we put this oven to a test by making a cheesecake?”. A good Cheesecake recipe is important but the efficiency of an oven is even more important! If the temperature is inaccurate and there are lots of hot and cold spots, it will lead to a cracked cheesecake. Sometimes, the temperature inside so differs from what it stated on the dial that it will result in a very dry and crusty cheesecake. Nasty!

Honey Blueberry Cheesecake - Panasonic Cubie Oven

Honey Blueberry Cheesecake – Panasonic Cubie Oven

Honey Blueberry Cheesecake – Panasonic Cubie Oven

I’m surprised that they have a preset menu for a fuss-free cooking experience as you don’t have to actually frustrated which mode or temperature to set. For cheesecake, the instruction menu told me to set the oven to number 10 in the auto menu mode. As you guys know, I would often advise you to preheat your oven before you start your recipe, right? Yet, I was flabbergasted that the oven actually preheats really quickly! I was just blitzing the biscuits for the base and it’s already preheated to the desired level. Though it is small and compact, the oven is large enough to roast a chicken for the family. You could even steam two large fishes on two separate trays at one go!

Once I mixed all my ingredients, off it goes into the oven! The oven automatically set the desired temperature and duration. As the mode uses steam and bakes function, it will automatically burst shots of steam into the cavity to ensure my cheesecake stays soft and moist. No waterbath, no fuss!

My Honey Blueberry Cheesecake recipe is easy to make and is special as compared to conventional recipes. The base uses toasted almonds and digestive biscuits to yield you a nutty fragrant aroma. While sugar is replaced with honey to give you a lovely deepen flavor. Lemon zest is also added to pair all the ingredients together and the result is stunningly lovely.

Look at it, doesn’t it looks lovely? The sides ain’t crusty and the inside remains soft and creamy. I like my cheesecake cold so I would suggest you to serve chilled!

Lapis Surabaya

Lapis Surabaya

Lapis Surabaya

Last week, I shared my experience at Lapis Lapis in Jakarta with my good friend, Titan. If you haven’t seen the video make sure to check it out here!

So for today, I am sharing my take on Lapis Surabaya. I got this recipe from my mum’s old notebook and made some modifications to suit the size of my pan. As I don’t fancy making a whole cake because I can’t finish, I made my Kueh Lapis in a loaf pan instead. If you want to make a large 7-inch square cake, just double the recipe will do.

Lapis Surabaya

Additionally, if you have noticed, I’m not in my own kitchen! I shot this recipe in IMPIXEL kitchen studio. Make sure to check out my video recipe on Youtube and tell me about my new shooting style. I certainly do feel nervous speaking in front of the camera while baking. But I really want to share my tips and trick and connect with all of you so I hope you guys will enjoy my new format.
