Curry Baked Rice with Tefal Ingenio

Curry Baked Rice with Tefal Ingenio

It’s weekday evening, you want something quick and simple. Nothing too fancy, but not too shabby. Whether it’s just for just you and your partner, or you have asked a friend or two who stays nearby to come by after work for chitchat session, this baked rice recipe will sure be ready in under 30 minutes.

The key ingredient to this recipe is actually the curry paste. Not only it has species in it, but it also contains garlic and onion, allowing you to skip the process of chopping those up. Any brand of the curry paste is fine, go with what you prefer and adjust the flavour accordingly to your spicy level. For me, I enjoy making it from scratch. What I usually do is to blitz up some curry powder along with curry leaves, dried chilis, garlic, onion, ginger, cinnamon powder, salt, pepper, soy sauce and a drizzle of vegetable oil to emulsify everything into a smooth paste and stick it into the fridge. It’s super convenient when your curry cravings kick in or when you have an unexpected guest to impress.

For versatility, I used one of my Tefal Ingenio pans for this recipe. From stir-frying to baking to serving, I have only used one pan, saving me some time and effort when cleaning up later on. That’s the great thing about Tefal Ingenio, it can be used on the hob, in the oven, as a serving plate for a dish and even store leftover food into the fridge.

Each Ingenio set comes with a removable handle which is used across all the pans. And since there is no handle sticking out when you are not using, you could store the pans away easily by stacking it up and tucking it away in a corner of your cabinet.

I finished it off with an egg in the centre of the baked rice. It’s a simple way to bring the dish up a notch.

  • Next, stir in some vegetables, chopped carrots, large chili, and long beans. Cook for a few minutes until the vegetable is evenly coated with the paste.
  • If you want, you could add in your favourite ingredients, like chicken, tofu, peas and seafoods.
  • Scatter in some thinly sliced tau pok and give it a quick stir before adding your cooked rice.

  • Stir-fry for a few more minutes until the rice soaks up the liquid. Crack in an egg in the middle and sprinkle pizza topping cheese over the pan.
  • Transfer the pan to the oven and detach the handle. Bake it until the cheese is evenly melted and golden brown.
  • Remove the pan from the oven by attaching the handle back to the pan and serve immediately.
  • Sprinkle some chopped curry leaves when you serve.

Min Chiang Kueh (面煎粿) / Apam Balik

Min Chiang Kueh

Min Chiang Kueh (面煎粿), which also can be known as Apam Balik in Melayu is a traditional turnover pancake filled with fillings. It is thought to be common to find these sold on roadside streets throughout Malaysia and Singapore (Well, it’s 2019, you can only get these at a hawker centre now). While it’s fluffier than the American counterpart, Min Chiang Kueh is like the little sister of the Indonesian Martabak Manis, which still holds in place at the top for its rich variety of fillings and mighty thickness.

Min Chiang Kueh

In the article, I’ll be sharing two types of filling I would typically go for, the traditional classic that calls for crushed peanuts and sugar, and Nutella cheese. While there are a wide variety of fillings you can choose from to incorporate (even making it savoury), these two are my ultimate favourite as it always rings the bell of comfort in my tastebud.

Min Chiang Kueh

You can make the batter ahead of time (up to 2 days), and put it in the fridge to rest. The recipe is also very easy to make, I think anyone can easily recreate this recipe without any problem. The key thing to take note is the heat applied when frying. You have to make sure that the pan is preheated over LOW heat. Too hot and you will burn your pancake without cooking it fully. I also liked using a good nonstick skillet as it helps me to lift the pancake up easily without a problem. If you like the crust of Min Chiang Kueh, swirl around the pan to give that crisp edge.

If you feeling extremely hungry and want something filling, Bugis Café also offers a wide array of main course dishes other than bites for you to savor. I got to try out their “Belly-Nice” Pork which was braised pork belly with rice and it was alright. The pork belly was juicy and the tau pok was busting with flavourful when you bite into it. I like my rice to be ‘wet’, so the next time I order it, I’ll request for some extra gravy to go along with.

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic

It has been about 3 months since I did my LASIK surgery. I know some of you guys are very curious on my LASIK journey so I can’t wait to share with you guys how I feel about it.

Why did I go for LASIK?

Even though my shortsighted degree wasn’t very high (both sides about -1.75), I decided to still go with the procedure because I find a hassle wearing glasses and contact lens. On days whereby I need to wear contact lens, it would take me ages to put on the lens as it can get pretty irritating. The idea of rubbing my eyes when trying to put it on definitely isn’t pleasing! I also don’t like the feeling of dryness after prolonged of wearing it. Additionally, my ears would feel really sore if I wear spectacles for long hours.

Sometimes, I’m lazy to wear any spectacles or contact lenses. But, it was hard for me to see things like street’s name, bus number, or signage even though my degree wasn’t very high. It was still affecting my daily life.

Pre-LASIK Assessment

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic

LASIK Experience with W Eye Clinic – Pre-LASIK Assessment

I was told that a pre-assessment was needed to be made for the doctor to evaluate if I am suitable for LASIK. The Pre-LASIK Assessment was only SGD$25 at W Eye Clinic! It was really affordable to get your eyes checked. To make a booking for the assessment was fairly easy, all I did was to make a call for an appointment. The whole process was about 2 hours. Yes, it was long. But, I was glad that the clinic checked my eyes thoroughly to make sure that I’m suitable for the surgery. I told myself that if I’m not suitable it would be alright because it was only 20 bucks. No harm getting it checked, right?

Do note that the result of the assessment will be only valid for 3 months, so if you are suitable for LASIK, make sure to pre-book your surgery date within 3 months of the pre-assessment day! I was super thrilled when the doctor told me that I was suitable to do the surgery.

Dr. Nah suggested me to do Intralase LASIK and I went ahead with his recommendation.

For more info about the method, you could click here.

Surgery

The actual surgery was separated mainly into two parts:

  1. Creation of Flap
  2. Laser

Though the whole process took about 2 hours, most of the time I was just getting prepared. There were lots of cleaning and resting in between to make sure I was ready for the next step. When it comes to the actual machine doing the lasering, it took less than 1 minute per eye each time.  I was super nervous during the procedure! But, the nurse that was attending me was very caring and understanding. She slowly explained the process throughout the procedure so that I would know what to expect next and be prepared for. Honestly, I don’t feel any pain at all, even after the procedure when my anesthetic wore off. My eyes just felt a little dry and itchy. I was told repeatedly NOT to rub my eyes and use lots of eye drops to aid healing.

Benefits

I decided to go for this method because,

  1. It recovers quickly – perfect vision on the 2nd day
  2. Painless – Only felt a little drier than usual for the first 2 weeks but no pain

My eyes were quite red after the surgery. Dr. Nah told me that the reason for my reddy eyes was that he used a stronger suction during the first part of the surgery. A stronger suction is safer for us patient as the chances of it slipping away during the surgery is lower. This means that your eye will stay still while the machine creates the flap. Of course, the downside for me was that I had reddy eyes for the next 3 weeks. Yet, I prefer the safer option and have the reddish eyes to risking it slipping away if he used a weaker suction cup.

I woke up with a perfect vision on the 2nd day. However, I was told my Dr. Nah that the first few weeks of recovery was crucial and advised me to keep putting eye drop medication and go for review to prevent infection. I made sure to get enough rest and avoid dusty areas to promote healing during that period too.

Another factor was that I could not wash my hair and face for the first week of recovery to prevent bacteria from getting into my eyes. It was a hassle for me as I could only use wet wipes to clean my face while avoiding the eye area. I was instructed to gently clean the area of my eyes with a cotton ball that has been soaked in recently boiled water twice a day. Still, it wasn’t that bad as I was having my term breaks and just stayed at home.

A week after my surgery, my eyes felt so much better, even though I do feel dry from time to time, I find myself needing lesser eye drops than before. Still, I was advised to lubricate my eyes well for the first 3 months.

Now (after 3 months), my eyes feel good as I don’t feel dry anymore. I thought I was going to be prepared to use eye drops every day for life, I find myself not needing eye drops anymore. I still strongly believe in having some eye drop vials on hand if I find myself feeling dry and tired after a long day. I’m also glad that my doctor told me that I have 6 out of 6 perfect eyesight!

The size of the pan is great when making breakfast for yourself or for two. Cooking became so much easier when the food slides off easily from the pan. Personally, I’m a very lazy cook. I like things to be quick and fuss-free, so I often use Tefal non-stick cookware myself. As compared to other brands, they last really long!

With its light-weight size, it is so convenient!

Invisalign Final Update – Teeth Straightening Part 3

Invisalign Final Update

Invisalign Final Update

It’s been about 2 years since I started my teeth straightening journey. The whole process of my Invisalign wasn’t actually that long, I only wore it about one and a half years. If you want to know about the first part of my journey of Invisalign, make sure to click here.

As compared to the past, my teeth look damn perfect, right? I am so happy with the result!

I still have to wear those plastic aligners (aka. retainers) every night to maintain it. Even if you were to do braces you would have to wear it after your treatment too! I mean it can still be a hassle, after all, you have to wash the retainers and pop it in your mouth every night, only to take it out in the morning when you wake up. But, that’s the consequence of being vain, right?

Look at the before and after photos of me. I still can’t believe how by straightening my teeth, my whole looks kinda changed for the better! 

*ALERT! BRACE YOURSELF WITH MY VERY UGLY PHOTOS THAT WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO PUKE!

You can see that my front teeth were protruding out so badly like a butterfly. I’m very bliss that now I look so much better.

A lot of differences right? The whole structure looks much more rounded and straighter looking as compared to the past. I wish you would totally ignore my yellowish teeth too! 🙁

Check out this video for my final session with my doctor, Dr. Kenneth Tan.

I’m very glad that I decided to go for Invisalign. Comparing the pictures of before and after makes me realize that how the structure of someone’s teeth can transform the overall look of a person. Not only that, I was able to present the very best of myself during the whole one and the half years of my treatment as the aligners were transparent and ‘invisible’.
