Taste of Home

It crossed my mind

but I was defeated

even though my favourite line was

Nothing is Impossible

I lack the equipment

which in this case



Then they have to show this poster here

which made me craved over it for nights



And then …


like a spark of genius

I realised that

maybe I COULD


and the rest was history …

So now I shall thus add

Desperation Creates Possibilities

Desperadoes, here you go !

Korean Vegetable Pancake

I get to know this Korean lady. Each time we meet, she will bring along some homemade Korean food.

We love Korean food. My husband loves kimchi and Malcolm loves Korean pancakes. So you can imagine how happy we were when served with authentic Korean food. But of course that’s not enough, we need MORE.

So for the past week, I have been whipping out something new, yet another Korean dish.

Our favourite last week are these Vegetable Pancakes.

They are so easy to make. I cook them almost every other day. We had it for lunch and made it again for dinner and we don’t seem to get tired of them. We are so hooked.

What I really like about this dish is that it is loaded with lots of wholesome vegetables and because it is pancake, Malcolm wallops everything up with ketchup within minutes.

1/2 cup water
1 egg

Note : You can vary the vegetable according to your liking



I blame it on the phone calls

I blame it on my Mum’s exemplary example

I blame it on my feeble mind

I blame it on Malcolm’s enthusiasm
