Christmas Tree Ideas



By now most of us in this world are living with the new norm with some restrictions here and there imposed by respective rulings government to flatten the global pandemic hit us world wide.

How is  Covid-19 going to affect Christmas in the year 2020? 

It's hard to predict how will Christmas be like during Covid-19 year.

Will some of us in this world be in the lockdown during Christmas day?

Are there any specific Covid Rules for Christmas season?

Can some of us meet other household and even see their own family during Christmas?

Since the normal life shuts down around us, we need a balm to the soul. Life must go on. Festive need to be celebrated even if it's in small scale to cheer us up!

That is why setting up a Christmas tree in the year 2020 could be more important than ever.


Budget Christmas Tree


1. The Wallet- Friendly Christmas Tree

Christmas Tree for Studio Home


2. The Space-Saving Christmas Tree

Not many of us blessed to live in a spacious home. Don't end up purchase a shorter and smaller Christmas tree just to save some space.   For those who live in a studio or much smaller space, you can shop for a much slimmer Christmas tree. 


Millennial Christmas Tree

4. Luxury Christmas Tree

For glamourous and luxurious type can opt for the premium Christmas tree. Just get yourself the bigger and taller tree. If I were given the choice to decorate this premium tree, I would mix the gold ornaments and light sparkling blue I bet this year 2020 will be the most glamourous Christmas ever to have such tree in the house.

5. Dark Christmas Tree

Some of us may choose a darker colour Christmas tree. It can be a black or darker green colour tree. Darker Christmas tree doesn't mean a bad omen or something. The theme may sound like gothic kind of look but I would I say it would be an insta-worthy impact if you decorate it tastefully. You can even put it out on the 31st October for Halloween fun event at home. This may be more suitable for those who have a modern contemporary home decoration The darker theme Christmas tree is definitely dramatic and for those who love loves defying the traditional theme. 


Frozen Theme Christmas Tree

6. White Christmas Tree

" I wish for a Christmas "

Bring the white Christmas into your home. Create the 'Frozen theme' with a white Christmas tree in the house. White Christmas can give you an angelic vibe It can give you the winter Christmas feels and luxurious. White goes with many colour choice of ornaments. I bet it can be a good home project together with your loves one.

After a long year of uncertainty, full of worries and lack of movement freedom, we should celebrate the Christmas with joyful than ever. Setting up a good and beautiful Christmas tree, will be fun activities and create special bonding if you are staying with family. Even if you are alone, you may find the activities are satisfying and will bring you the happiness you are longing.

What is the different between Oven Toaster and Air Fryer

Friday, October 16, 2020 0 Comments



My birthday falls on the 12 October and since this year was unlike any other year, I will be away travelling abroad to enjoy my solo moment forever. This year, I decided to just have another day and not doing anything at all. I already glad to be still alive and stay healthy on that date. isk isk

I turned off the Facebook birthday reminder, so others don't feel obliged to wish me just because of that notification. It was a quiet birthday, as I wanted in the year 2020.

My sisters pool money to purchase an Air Fryer as a present for me. So kind of them! Here I end up adding a Haier Air Fryer in my little kitchen. As a first time Air Fryer user, I search on YouTube to use this new kitchen tool. My air fryer adventure begins from here.

While using the air fryer, it came to my mind...."What is the difference of Air Fryer compare to the Oven Toaster"? The basic function in the surface kind of almost the same to my simple mind opinion.

I owned an oven toaster at home. I usually toast bread. There was time once I tried baking using oven toaster but end up with baking disaster all the time. So I stop baking and just use that when wanting my food warm. hahaha... yeah! 

Heat


I was talking about this with my sister and both of us came to a conclusion both air fryers and oven toaster has an almost similar function which is both create hot air. However, the heated air from the oven toaster is pretty much basic and weaker than air fryer. I would rather compare air fryer with convection oven which my mum used to own. Even though convection oven is powerful but it doesn't offer the fried food style like air fryer though.

My first experience using the air fryer


I was very impressed when first try out the air fryer to cook a hash brown. Check my video guide on how to cook a perfect hash brown in the air fryer. I don't need to use any oil to greased or what so ever. Just throw in the hash brown into the air fryer and leave to my morning shower. The hash brown turns out perfectly crispy in the outside and moist in the inside after I have done with my shower. Non-oily and not greasy at all. That morning... I was definitely ...Wow! all the way with what else this thing can do for me.

Way of Cooking


I owned a very basic function selection oven toaster. Typically, it can bake, grill and roast. I only know how to heat up my food use this oven toaster. The air fryer has all the functions I mentioned with some additions such as air frying and even dehydrating to the mix. So honestly, I find as a newbie kitchen tool user, air fryer is easy to use and straight forward too. One thing that makes me fall in love with air fryer right away is the fried taste. I love fried food but was advised not to eat that often since its oily and unhealthy. Furthermore, fry food requires more oil. Air fryer saves the oil money and also save me from the hassle of cleaning up the oil splashing on the wall. huhuhuh

Safety issue


I still doubt about the safety issue of air fryer no matter how I love this. I used to own a microwave oven and end up with a kitchen disaster twice which I almost burnt down my whole kitchen by heating up a 'bao' and chicken dishes respectively in separate horror event. The 'bao' frightening event cause the whole apartment unit cover with smoke and the auto fire extinguisher was triggered. While the heating up a bowl of chicken dishes experience cause the whole microwave oven caught fire. huhuhuh.... frightening, right???

As for oven toaster, I barely have that frightening experience as microwave oven apart from I end up burning my food in that toaster most of the time. huhuhuh....my problem was I am bad with the manual. 

With the air fryer, since the heat is so intense and strong as if a combination of a convection oven and microwave oven, so I worried a lot. The noise from air fryer is almost microwave oven loud noise but softer than that. So I don't feel it scary for the air fryer. I did overcook my soft bun in the air fryer, though. Check the video on how to make a no-knead soft bun with the air fryer here.

In my opinion, invest in a trusted and good quality air fryer if you need one. Make sure you do a lot of research in the Do(s) and the Don't (s) with the air fryer. If you think cooking with the air fryer is faster...mmmm...I don't think so. To fry a perfect fish you require 15 minutes of cooking time. While a simple hash brown requires around 18 minutes of your time. So there's no short cut to this. 

I am still discovering the use of air fryer and so far I have done basic fryer, basic toasting, baking which I baked bun and bread for the first time in my life. Yes! I even cook spaghetti in the air fryer too. No oil in the process which is the beauty of using air fryer that I love the most.

Visit my YouTube Channel CindyrinaRina for more of air fryer adventure. Don't forget to subscribe and like me to give more encouragement. Thank you!

By the way, I am using Haier brand 4 litres analogue version.

Does the cheap 3 In 1 Robotic Cleaner works?

Wednesday, October 14, 2020 0 Comments




Recently, I bought a robot cleaner. Dirt cheap version. Well, with the price I paid less RM60, I don't really have high expectation. I am more than happy if this thing is working when it reaches me. Hopefully, this fella can help me to reach out to all dust or do the wiping under my bed. Yay! my main focus is under my bed and bedroom area. I was sceptical when purchasing this. Really pray hard it won't a waste of my money.




It is a one-key cleaning as it claims. You need to press the button to let it run and you have to press the button again to make it stop. I did have a hard time when this thing running under my bed and refuse to come back outside. kekekeke
IMA has to use the broomstick to pull this naughty thing out!




Charging time around 4 hours and it will run quite long since my room isn't that big so its hard for me to track on how long it will last. I haven't use the moping function yet. You just need to open the top part to clean up the dust collected , every now and then. In my opinion, this is easy to maintain too.




So far the swivel thingy spinning well to collect hair fall and small dust. The function is good and the value as the price paid. 
I recommended this to my sis and she immediately bought this too. She also agreed on this vacuum help for dusting and hair fall collection. It works well on the carpet too according to her. 

To purchase a good quality robot vacuum cleaner is kind of expensive for me, so I settled with this for the time being. Since it helps, why not?

As long as you don't have high expectation, this is good.

How To Choose A Home Water Filter

Monday, September 28, 2020 0 Comments



If you are an Asian like me, it's common hearing mum or elders nag to drink more water all the time. Well, nothing annoying about this. In fact, this is a good reminder since drinking water at least 8 glasses a day good for your body and immune system. Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate!

I am not sure about other country but especially in Asia, we don't blatantly drink water from our pipe in the sink. We either require to boil water or get a good water filter. At least water filters remove contaminants. There are many types of water filter in the market. Some even offer hot and ice cold water features. It can be difficult to choose the best water filter. Here I list down some of the basic checklists to help you to make a good decision on which water filter suit your needs.

How To Choose A Home Water Filter?


1. Study on POE (Point Of Entry) and POU (Point Of Use) systems


Commonly, there are two types of water filters available for home use. POE systems treat all the water that enters your home and then connects to the water meter or some pressurized water tank. While POU systems, treat water at the point where it is being consumed such as the sink or even shower head. POU systems can be installed externally or internally.POU that is installed internally, filter the water usually passing through the pipe.

2. Research more information on different types of POU systems


POU filters such as built-in filters, refrigerator filters and even pitcher filters can be mounted directly to the faucet, under the sink or the countertop.

3. Check on Water Contamination level and evaluate based on your needs


This is the most important information required for your decision making to narrow down your water filtering system best suit your needs. Usually, you could easily find this information from your local government website, newspaper or any other online channel. The contamination can be in the form of visible particles or invisible bacteria.
Well, if the contamination in the water is toxic, then the POE filter is suitable since it cleans all the before entering your house water. A POU filter on the faucet, if you are only filtering the water for taste.

If you are in doubt, consider consulting a Certified Water Treatment Professional or someone who has experience in doing so.

If you are looking for water filter Singapore, you can consider filtec.com.sg who has vast experience and a passionate team with water filtration and purification. My SG friend highly recommended them for not only provide professional advice but also helps in solving the problem in their area of expertise.
Most of their water filter selection centred on lean engineering that exceeds conventional device while maintaining its effectiveness. Mostly designed for maximum simplicity in usage. Good news for us who favour a plug-and-play concept and less maintenance costs.

I was using a countertop twin water filter at home since all I need is just a peace of mind kind of filter water with better taste. Basically, the water safe for my consumption. But there are many countertop twin water filter in the market. You are spoiled with choices!

First Time Kombucha Brewer

Thursday, August 27, 2020 1 Comments



If you have been following my blog for many years, you will notice that I am a sucker when it comes to Kombucha. Not only Kombucha has a good health benefit but it also tastes delicious and I can drink some fizzy drink without any guilt. But to purchase shelf Kombucha kind of expensive. Imagine one bottle of this fizzy drink cost me between RM10 to RM16. Damn! That's expensive for my purse!

So I decided to brew it at home. I was really nervous to do this kind of brewing at home. Who knows instead of brewing good bacteria for guts, I will end up brewing and breeding bad bacteria. Anyway, as this post was published, I was at my 3rd batch of my own homemade Kombucha. Yay! Success and still learning along the way.😍

What Do You Need To Brew Kombucha?


1. Good SCOBY with quality starter tea

2. Glass Jar

3. Tea Concentrate

4. Sugar water

5. Cotton cloth to cover

6. Patient to wait




What is SCOBY?


SCOBY stands for,

Symbiotic 

Culture

Bacteria

Yeast

Yes! it is a bacteria and yeast fermentation process so please expect your Kombucha drink has hints of a sour taste.

Can you make your own SCOBY?


Yes! you can make your own SCOBY but if you are a beginner like me, it is better to purchase SCOBY. If you still insist to make your own SCOBY from scratch, you can try it. All you need is to combine tea, sugar and some good pre-made unflavored kombucha. Get the kombucha with some little blobby things floating at the top or bottom of the bottle. I can't explain this in details since I am just a beginner brewer who started my home brewing with online store purchase SCOBY.😜

The SCOBY, I bought coincidently the good quality one. YEAY! 🙋🙋

Three Steps of Kombucha Process


First Fermentation


Kombucha first fermentation process consists of mixing tea concentrate (advisable to use green tea or black tea) with some water, sugar, and SCOBY with its starter tea in the glass jar. I use a 2-litre glass jar which I bought just for this project. 🤣
Measurement for the first fermentation. Seriously, I am not that type of person who likes to measure things. So, I just add in whatever based on my gut feelings. Yeah! I learn all this from YouTube and do whatever I wanted after that! Pour everything in the glass jar and then secure the top with a cotton cloth and tied it with a rubber band. Then I place the jar in my book cabinet and leave the cabinet door a bit open just enough for air circulation. So my jar not in complete darkness place. I left it for 7 days. I don't even bother to check the bottle in there before 7 days. I only open the cabinet when the time comes.😁

Oh! by the way, for your information since I love doing whatever I want, end up use Earl Grey Tea for my Kombucha tea. Seriously, I realized on my mistake after the second day of fermentation. I was ...like ...let God decide on my Kombucha tea.



Second Fermentation


When I finally opened the bottle after 7 days, my SCOBY has multiplied to 2 SCOBY. Yes! the mother SCOBY not only grew thicker, but it has also given birth to one baby. So, I end up become a God Grandmother to baby SCOBY. WTH!




I place the SCOBY into the glass bowl together with some tea from my first fermentation jar as a starter for the next batch of first fermentation. I decide to use green tea on my next batch. If you are not ready to do the second batch, you can always place the SCOBY with the starter tea and feed it with some sugar in a glass jar which we call it SCOBY Hotel. Since I want a continuous supply of Kombucha in my fridge. So I started the second batch at the same time with first batch second fermentation.





What do you for Kombucha second fermentation?

This is the time where you flavoured Kombucha to your personal liking. I took out the SCOBY and some starter tea into another glass jar. Then add in some flavour to the remaining tea which has gone through the first fermentation for 7 days. I then cover the glass jar with the tight lid. It should be tight enough so no wind or anything could enter the jar. Place the jar somewhere on the shelf or anywhere, no need to be in the closed cabinet or what so ever. I just left it there for 7 days without even burping it out, like how those people in the youtube taught. You can check out some of the YouTube videos for the Kombucha flavouring process. 


Third Fermentation



This is the process where I filtered the residue from the second fermentation process Kombucha into another airtight bottle and left it in the fridge for another 7 days. This process is for Kombucha to get frizzier. Some Kombucha Gurus advise you to burp it out every day and you can even enjoy the Kombucha within 4 - 5 days after placing it in the fridge. 





This is my first batch of Kombucha after 5 days in the fridge. I flavour it with nutmeg, lemon and honey. My Kombucha taste really flat and sweet after 5 days. I left it another 7 to 10 days in the fridge and the taste getting frizzier and not sweet but it is to my liking.



My second batch of Kombucha using green tea and I flavour it with Dragon Fruits and Blueberries. I decided to just leave go for 7:7:7 process. First fermentation 7 days, second fermentation another 7 days and 7 days in the fridge. Oh yeah!!!! just like my favourite store-bought Kombucha. I did it! Just love this one. 
I am currently on the third batch of Kombucha first fermentation process. My SCOBY has grown really thick and healthier. I am a God Grandma to few babies now!

Have you tried brewing your own Kombucha before?

It was a great addictive experience for me now. I just want the continuous supply of Kombucha in my fridge and be more variety in the flavouring process.
Conclusion of my fermentation process took up to 21 days for one batch of Kombucha. I have been making it for 2 months now.

I always watch those actors and actress in Kdrama ate Jjajangmyeon deliciously. But when I ate this at Korean Restaurant, it's too sweet and too thick with starch. Totally not to my tastebud.

Jjajangmyeon is a Chinese style Korean noodle dish topped with a thick dark brown sauce made from black bean paste, pork and some vegetables. You can change pork with chicken or seafood. This dish usually describes as sweet and tangy taste. You won't miss out this dish if you are an avid Korean drama fan. Totally Korean people favourite dish. I just can't resist but want to try this out.

I tried Jjajangmyeon at a few Korean restaurants. Totally don't like the taste because they made it too sweet. It would be better if the taste is less sweet, less thick and have a little bit of spicy after taste. 

So....for the first time, I challenge myself to make Jjajangmyeon at home. 



First, I bought the Jjajangmyeon set from Marimogo at my favourite online shopping store, Shopee. Ahah...you may be thinking, I don't make a thing from scratch and this is a ready-made sauce. This is nothing to shout out, though! Super easy and anyone can cook this. Yes! Anyone can cook this, right? Whether it's instant or whatsoever, I still made Jjajangmyeon suit my taste finally. 

Marimogo Jjajangmyeon sauce came with Fatboi Noodles, Jjajangmyeon sauce and Danmuji which is a pickled radish. 

How to make Jjajangmyeon?


Prepare the noodles by boiling it for 8 to 10 minutes or to the texture of your liking. Some like it soft and some like it a bit chewy. Just like how you cook pasta. As for the sauce, I just did the basic stir-fried and season it to suit my taste.


First, saute the yellow onion. The more onion you put the sweeter and the taste will be nicer.


Then add in chicken meat. You can replace this with seafood. Everything to your liking. Stir fry this together until the meat cook.


Add in marimogo jjajangmyeon sauce into the wok. I just add around 5 tablespoons of this. Since I don't like it too thick, so I add in a bit of water.



Then add in the vegetables. You can add in some corns, carrots and green peas. As for me, I just made my life easier again by adding the frozen mixed vegetables. All in! So convenient. Let it boiled for a few minutes. I added some pepper, a pinch of salt and cayenne peppers. 


How to serve Jjajangmyeon?


Add the yellow noodles into the bowl. Top up the noodles with hot Jjajangmyeon sauce. Slice some cucumber and danmuji or pickled radish. 


I top my jjajangmyeon bowl with a fried egg. How was my jjajangmyeon taste? Omo! how come my homemade jjajangmyeon taste delicious and better than those I ate at a Korean restaurant? hehehehehe..serious delicious because it's not sweet and has that spicy after taste, I always wanted.

My first time try cooking jjajangmyeon is a success!

Next challenge will be making my own sourdough starter and bake sourdough bread. I just ordered the flour for my sourdough challenge from shopee last night.  Don't forget to subscribe to my blog and get the latest update on my next challenge!
