What is thin, flat & round? PANCAKE!!

I love pancake & now I feel like eating it!! Since there’s no pancake here at home, let’s blog about it instead!! Before that, do feast your eye on the picture below! NICE & TEMPTING!!

WHAT IS ‘PANCAKE’

A pancake is a thin, flat, round cake prepared from batter, and cooked on a hot griddle or frying pan. Depending on the regions, pancakes may be served at any time of the day, with a variety of toppings such as jams, maple syrup, honey, chocolate syrup, chocolate chip, ice-cream, etc. … yummmmyyyy!!!

REGIONAL VARIETIES : DIFFERENT NAMES & TYPES OF PANCAKE

France : Crepes (Thin pancake usually served with sweet or savory filling)

Germany : Pfannkuchen, Kaiserschmarrn (A light, caramelized pancake that is split into pieces, filled with fruit and/or nuts, sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with a fruit sauce)

The Netherlands : Poffertjes, Pannenkoeken (usually eaten during dinner, it is slightly ticker than crepes and usually quite large. Filling can include sliced apple, cheese, ham, bacon, candied ginger, etc.)

Sweden : Scandinavian pancake, Pannkakor, Raggmunk, Aggakaka (also called eggcake, which is a lot thicker & difficult to make due to the risk of burning it)

Finland : Letty, Raiskale, Ohukainen, Lettu (usually eaten with whipped cream and/or jam)

Hungary – Palacsinta

India : Pooda, Dosa, Appam, Neer Dosa, Uttapam

Malaysia – Apam Balik (can be thin, thick, crispy, etc. Can get it at most ‘pasar malam’ @ night market. How do i know this? Because I AM MALAYSIAN! :) )

Actually there are more varieties of pancake, but can’t be writing about ALL of it so i will stop here for now! :) If you need a recipe for pancake, do visit any of the link below. ENJOY!

A new way to play tag – Laser Tag!!

Planning for a fun-filled activity but have no idea on what to do??? Head on to Galactic Laser, MidValley Megamall Kuala Lumpur to experience a new way to play ‘tag’! LASER TAG that is!!

What is it?

Laser tag is a team or individual sport. Players need to score points by engaging targets, using a hand-held infrared-emitting targeting device. To score points, basically all you have to do is to shoot at your opponent!! If you are worried that you don’t really know how to play this game, do not worry!! There will be a briefing by the staff before the game starts! & i really need to give some credit to the staff there since they are very helpful, entertaining & quite funny!! :)

I guess text alone won’t be much of help so here are some interesting photos!

 

 

 

 

 

Looks promising & tempting enough to you? By the way, there’s also a room for you to rent if you need to conduct a meeting or something before starting the game & there’s also a place for you to eat!! If you are planning to actually go there, below are some information to help you with!

Hey people! Do you know what day is today?? If your answer is Sunday, you are right!! But that’s not the answer that I’m looking for! :P Actually, today is EARTH DAY so people … HAPPY EARTH DAY!!

I’m sure that most of you are aware of ‘Earth Hour’ but not ‘Earth Day’, so let me give you a brief introduction on ‘Earth Day’. Earth Day is celebrated every year on 22 April, and it was first celebrated in 1970. Today, Earth Day is coordinated globally by the ‘Earth Day Network’. The purpose of celebrating Earth Day?? Easy!! It is celebrated every year to increase awareness and appreciation of Earth’s natural environment. So basically what we should do during Earth Day is to show some love to our one & only Earth!! My question to you … what would you do to save our beloved Earth??

If you don’t have the answer to my previous question, the least you can do is to visit Earth Day website and pledge! To go to the website, click on the link: http://www.earthday.org/

I ♥ CHOCOLATE – Dedicated to those who think chocolate are fattening!!

Image

I ♥ CHOCOLATE! I ♥ CHOCOLATE! I ♥ CHOCOLATE! I ♥ CHOCOLATE!

I REALLY ♥ CHOCOLATE!!! How often do i eat chocolate? well…i will definitely eat chocolate several days a week. I will even eat chocolate even though i am on diet!! By the way, do you know that eating chocolate can actually help to reduce stress, help with your diet & it is also good for your health? Here are some articles for you to read (if you are too lazy to click on the link, i’ve already type in the part where they mention about chocolate)! and 1 more thing, I’m giving you..especially those who thinks that chocolate will make you fat a very good reason to eat chocolate!!! YEAYYYYYYYY!!! :P

“Chocolate (for breakfast!): Recent research found that people who included desserts as part of their breakfast loss 40lbs more than those who atelow-calorie, low-carb breakfast – and they kept the weight off. Sweets in the morning seem to prevent cravings and overeating later in the day”

“Dark chocolate: Just a small portion of this antioxidant-filled treat satisfies a sweet tooth.”

“Indulge in chocolate: Chocolate lovers rejoice! A study published in the March 2012 Archives on Internal Medicinefound that people who eat chocolate more frequently on a weekly basis have a lower Body Mass Index (BMI) that those who eat less. Gorging on chocolate is not advised: a single serving is one ounce.”

“A new study has found that eating chocolate regularly is linked to a lower B.M.I…. (go read..its too long to put in writing here because the whole article is about chocolate)”

Eat Chocolate: Scientists from the University of California at San Diego studied nearly 1,000 people and discovered that those who regularly eat chocolate are slimmer than those who just eat it occasionally. That daily chocolate habit doesn’t sound so bad now, huh?”

“If you gave up chocolate with the hope of shrinking your waistline, you may want to reconsider that decision. New research from the University of California, San Diego, found that adults who ate chocolate often were actually-wait for it-thinner.”

Image

Actually there are more articles which relate chocolate to weight loss but i think these 6 articles will be more than enough (a bit lazy to add more..hehehe) … So to those who are skipping chocolate just to lose weight, you better think twice!! :)

LIGHT UP – New shopping experience to light up your world!

Image

Have you ever been to a lighting shop and feels like you just want to go running out of the shop immediately? I do have that feeling because i will feel dizzy whenever i go to lighting shops!! Seeing all those light fittings being put and hung everywhere across the shop makes my brain stop functioning! :P and there’s also the fear that i might break something (once broken considered sold!).

However, the first time i went to Philips Brand Store, everything change! The experience of being in a lighting store is not as what it used to be. All the light fittings are properly organised and displayed, befitting consumer lifestyle and home environment. There’s even a separate switch for each of the fittings, so you can see how bright is that certain light fitting. You can actually go around the shops and play with all the switches, so you will have a hands-on interactive experience!

Philips Brand Store is actually themed into 3 key zones, which are inspire, explore and plan. Once you enter the store, you can actually get some inspiration by looking at the things that are prepared for the customer. Once you walk further into the shop, you will go into the explore zone, where you can explore all the products available. Later on, you will go into the plan zone where you can plan what product to put in your house, and where you want it to be. There’s even a consultant to help you with the planning. So, bringing a home plan to Philips Brand Store will be very helpful!!

If you are wondering how does this Philips Brand Store (lighting store) looks like, below are some photos of the store!
