Taobao product recommendation – silicone cake mould

A parfait housed in a cup shape cake is like a dream, and i couldn’t resist trying my hand at making one. The major obstacle is in demoulding the cake, and i wondered if a silicone cake mould would help. In short, it works like a charm. I made the cake using a souffle recipe, […]

Taobao product recommendation – Beer all grain brewing all-in-one kit

I’ve been brewing beer from extract since the beginning (woah it’s been almost five years just like that), and that’s probably the right place to start for beginners. It couldn’t be easier, but everyone has to progress to grain brewing at some point. The traditional method usually involves a three tier system which takes up […]

Shopee product recommendation – Ozone air purifier

The other day i mentioned that i was going to get an Ozone air purifier for my fridge. Well, today i took delivery of the Enerfer Ozone air purifier. I’m very pleased with both the price and the dimensions of this product. It is rather diminutive and won’t take up much of your precious fridge […]

Qoo10 Product recommendation – Egg Sitter

Okay, yet another product discovered through Facebook, and it is also yet another kickstarter project. It’s a very compelling product, but so expensive! Especially since i missed the early bird deal, which still costs S$83 per piece. So, i looked for a cheapo imatation, and lo and behold, there is the Egg Sitter. I think […]

Qoo10 Product recommendation – Korean Instant Noodles

Since Chapaguri was featured in the movie Parasite, I think a substantial number of people who saw the movie would have been curious enough to actually try to procure the noodles. I suppose you can count me as one of them. Well, not that i was desperate to try the noodles at once. Happens that […]

Shopee product review – Fridgeballs

Like many new products i’m trying out these days, i first saw these Fridgeballs on one of the Facebook videos. Toss one of these balls into your fridge and your fruits and vegetables will last twice as long. Sounded like a good idea, and i immediately did a search on Taobao to see if such […]

Taobao product recommendation – Oil sprayer

Years ago, i bought an oil sprayer, but it was soon left in the dust. It really didn’t work so well in that you don’t get an even misting. Fast forward to today, oil sprayers have improved quite a bit. The main reason i abandoned the idea of the oil sprayer was that the oil […]

Taobao product recommendation – Mini Wash Ultrasonic washer

I came across this “new” gadget on Kickstarter that uses technology I’ve never heard of – Ultrasonic cleaning. It looked really impressive, but by now, it’s become a reflex for me to be suspicious of products on crowd funding platforms. True enough, this was one of those many products being launched on Kickstarter simply for […]

Taobao product recommendation – Aircond remote control

The aircond remote control is one of those things that’s bound to become spoiled after some years of usage. The LCD becomes illegible. Thankfully, you can find compatible replacement remote controls from Taobao. I’m sure most people would prefer to buy a remote control that looks exactly the same as the one its meant to […]
