{Horrible Act} I Demand A Fair Judgement!

Chinese version of this post on 什么是侵犯版权 HERE.
My mood was badly affected since yesterday after seeing a link posted over at "Munch Ministry - Happy Call Group" at facebook. The link was featured by Deal.com.sg regarding purchase of Happy Call Pan (link HERE). I was shock to find this link after reading the comments over at the Happy Call Group (as the members mentioned the featuring HCP photos are very familiar to their eyes) because those photos featuring in the advertisement are ALL mine except one of it. And the worst nightmare is the Merchant from "Everything Korean" actually crop and ERASED my watermark and replaced it with their in order to claim the right of the photos. As a food blogger who love to cook, snap photos and devote most of my time in blogging I am really upset over this issue.

So after some thoughts, I decided to post some comparisons photos from the featured links with my original photos over at Cuisine Paradise facebook page (HERE and HERE) as well as Deal.com.sg and Everything Korean facebook page to create awareness this misused of photos and copyright issue. But sad to sad, both Deal.com and Everything Korean REMOVED comments posted by me and some of readers without even giving us a clarification on this issue. I am not trying to crate any problems for those parties involved, what I demand is a fair judgement for my STOLEN photos.


Above are some stolen photos of mine featuring at Deal.com.sg Happy Call Pan Deal which watermarks have being ERASED and replace by the Merchant's "EVERYTHING KOREAN" watermark. You can compare the above photos with my original photos below. They look 1000% exactly the same as my original photos!!!! 


Original Photo from Happy Call Double Sided Pressure Pan - 韩国双面锅 HERE with my copyright watermark "©Cuisine Paradise".

After my emails addressing to deal.com.sg plus leaving comments at their facebook page, they finally replied my email this morning addressing that they are in the process of taking down the pictures and they would also look into the matter with the merchant. But my replied to them is to demand them to REMOVE all  my related photos with IMMEDIATELY effect and yet they only remove 2 of the photos featuring my Happy Call Dishes which is shown on the comparison photos below plus they also STOP the featuring deal.

Emails from the person in-charge of "Everything Korean" after see "comments" over at their facebook (which had being removed by them) and as well my emails to deal.com.sg. From his emails I feel that he is not sincere (as he should seek my concern before using those photos) with his words and after my replied to him to remove all my related photos from deal.com.sg with IMMEDIATE effect he did not even bother to reply my email at all till now.

So with all the above, it is sad to say that these people are really unprofessional in handling such case and I did not received any further clarifications or apologise from either Deal.com or their merchant till date.

First photo above featuring two of my  Happy Call Dishes whereas 2nd photo below Deal.com has remove the dish photos after my receiving pressure emails and feedback from my supporting readers and friends. But then they still did not remove the rest of the relating photos which you can still see from their link HERE.

My original photos of the above dishes which can be found at Claypot Rice and Sizzling Tofu Post HERE.

Another online deal from "Everything Korean" using my photos featuring at Singapore Bestsite.

Lastly one of my reader from facebook also mentioned that "Home Idea" has taken a photo of mine shown above (link HERE) without my permission, concern or knowledge.

Home Ideas added another some photos and recipes of my Happy Call Pan dishes to their facebook page without my approval. {Updated on: 04 April 2012) Although they have removed all related photos and recipes but this screen captured will remains to act of warning for future theft.

My Happy Call Recipes Post is upload with exactly the same format and words over at Happy Call in Singapore and Malaysia website http://www.happycallpan.net/ without my approval or consent. {Updated on: 06 April 2012)

I really hope whoever out there who have done this kind of shameless act please spare a thought for blogger(s) like us who spent time and effort working on food photos and write-up in order to share and benefit our readers. We food blogger(s) are not those who can be easily BULLY so please don't take what we do for granted. If you really likes our photos or required any information, you can just seek for our concern on using the photos of information. Please don'tSTEAL and CLAIM whatever that is not belong to you as YOURS. If you are doing so, it is equivalent like STEALING without my approval.


CLARIFICATION EMAIL FROM DEAL


Email received from Deal.com management regarding the above issue. Glad that Richin Desai, VP, Marketing and his team has finally removed all my related photos pending to this copyright issue.

Dear Friends and Readers,

If you happen to see any of my photos from this blog being used without proper credit or like this issue, watermark being replaced unlawfully, please leave a comment or email me with details. So that in a way I could contact them as well as posting their shameless act over at this blog/facebook page. Thanks for all the supports.

Peanut Butter French Toast

Since today our Sunday service had being change to a later timing, I decided to make a hearty Breakfast for the day. After eating Peanut Butter French Toast from one of the Hong Kong cafe, I decided to try out this dish using my own method. But I didn't really managed to get that puffy and crunch bread like what I had eaten in that cafe :(

So from what you seen here, it's just normal sandwich bread that I spread with Peanut Butter and pan-fry with beaten egg then serve with extra honey and butter. In order to cut that that grease effect, I serve it with some orange wedges and grapes to make it more healthy. Posted by Picasa

P/s:
If anyone of you know any good and proof method for making this nice Hong Kong Style French Toast, do drop me an email/comment to advise me can? Thanks.

Bento #4 - Ham & Cheese Sandwiches

A wonderful and healthy lunch is just as important as a hearty breakfast. Today is Monday, the starting of the week again so I decided to make something hearty and healthy for lunch. Since I have bought some shave honey baked ham and wholemeal bread on Sunday. I decided to some ham and cheese sandwich to go with the apple and cucumber sticks for lunch.


My son and I love the Apple Dipper from Mac Donald so I got the idea of making my own Apple and Cucumber dipper with Caramel Sauce and it really taste great for a starter. I have slightly toasted the bread slices before adding cheese, ham, tomato and cucumber slices to it. I wrap it nicely with foil and baking paper then tie with baking string to that they can sit up straight side by side. As for the dessert, I serve it with two cubes of the Macadamia Nuts & Chocolate Fudge Brownies which we made on Sunday afternoon.Posted by Picasa

Bento #3 - Mr Pooh

Another day of Simple lunch bento. Today's menu will be Pooh Ham and Cheese Sandwiches served with Pooh Head print hard-boiled egg and some Prunes wedges. I starts to find it so interesting to prepare our own bento lunchbox. Although it might be just some simple food but the taste and sight is much more heart warming, nothing compare to homemade lunchbox especially it is with the help of my little Reyon.


As usual, we prepared most of the ingredients the night before so that in the morning it won't be so rush to get everything ready within limited time. Reyon enjoys the process of helping me out on my lunch bento and it's also a way of our bonding time to prepare something together. We have the bread, ham and cheese cut then kept either in the box or fridge. So on the next day morning, reyon will be able to help me assemble them while I pan-fry the ham and boil the egg. I tried not to overwork ourself on the preparation process so I only plan to bring bento lunch either twice or three time a week. Reyon loves this bento set very much especially the Pooh Egg, he even protest that I cannot take the egg which is one of his favourite snack :) Posted by Picasa

You can find the sample of the cutter and mould use on these links:
1. Medium Size Pooh Cutter
2. Small Size Pooh Cutter
3. Pooh Egg Mould

Benton #2

Bento is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento consists of rice, fish or meat, and one or more pickled or cooked vegetables as a side dish. And it is still common for Japanese homemakers to spend considerable time and energy producing an appealing boxed lunch. Recently a few of my blogger friends and I are sort of into the Bento craze, we are so impressed by a few of the bento bloggers and we also start to try preparing our own lunch bento.


For the start of the week which is a Monday, I choose something easy, sweet and colourful to brighten up the week. Reyon and I are very excited about preparing this bento lunch. After making the Chocolate Fudge Brownie, we starts to source for a suitable box, the shape of Onigiri mould, the fried rice ingredients and etc. I wrapped the fried rice Onigiri with either Fish Floss or Sandwich Cheese then decorate with Nori sheet. And this is the 2nd time that I have prepared bento to work, the very first round is making the Mini Pooh Bento Box for my colleagues as snacks.

This show a cross section of my Fish floss fried rice Onigiri. I packed my lunch bento with 2 fried rice onigiri, 2 square cubes of chocolate fudge brownies and some prunes wedges. Although it's a very simple lunch bento but I think it is definitely more healthier than those outside food. Posted by Picasa

Assorted Berries Fantasy

This is my very first Birthday Cake which I had made for as a gift. Actually I had two birthday cakes to make during this weekend. But due to the tight working schedule that I currently had, I had to cancel one of the order which I felt very sorry about it. This Assorted Berries Cake consists of a mixture of frozen berries like: Raspberries, Blueberries, Blackberries and Cherries which baked together with Grand Marnier infused butter cake mixture. It is then sandwich with Blueberries Cream Cheese and wrap up with extra Cream Cheese covering the whole cake and top with fresh Gooseberries and Strawberries. (Too bad, I won't be able to get a picture of the inner cut out of the cake, because it's a birthday cake :p)



This is a very simple design cake which I think I still have a long way to go comparing to those blogger who had being doing such a great job on their cake decoration. I think designing and assemble a cake of it own require some skills which I am still lacking off. But I will try my very best to polish up in this area and I hope I will have more chances to explore in the area of cake making...... Posted by Picasa
P/s: Happy Birthday To You My Dear Friend... Hope all your wishes will come True ........

Assorted Favour Jellies

First of all I would like to thank one of my good blogger friend Tracy for contributing two of her new creations to this blog. She is someone who loves all kinds of dessert and she is very innovative in creating her very own dessert using whatever ingredients she can find in her kitchen pantry. Like from those Assorted Agar Agar you can see she actually takes the time to boil the Dried Longan with Peng Da Hai to make the Ching Teng Favour. I can said, when comes to dessert Tracy really gives me a lot of wonderful ideas. Thank Pal for all the ideas and support.

The word agar comes from the Malay word agar-agar (meaning jelly). Agar is usually sold as packaged strips of washed and dried seaweed, or in powdered form. Raw agar is white and semi-translucent. For making jelly, it is boiled in water at until the solids dissolve, after which sweeteners, flavoring, coloring, and pieces of fruit may be added. The agar-agar may then be poured into molds or incorporated into other desserts, such as a jelly layer on a cake.



Japanese konnyaku jelly is made by mixing konnyaku flour with water and limewater. Without additives for color, konnyaku is pale white. It is then boiled and cooled to solidify. Konnyaku has almost no calories but is very high in fiber. Thus, it is often used as a diet food.

This Dried Fruits Konnyaku Jelly is something that is interesting from her. Because usually we add can mixed fruits or fresh fruit in it, I had never eaten this type of jellies with dried fruits added. So I am actually very keen on trying out the Sour Plum Favour type. So I am going to look for a suitable Sour Plum from Umeya to test this out. According to her, you just need to cut the dried fruits into smaller pieces then put into the jelly mould and cook the konnyaku according to packet instruction and pour into the mould set it in the fridge when cool over night or for a few hours to let the favour developed.

Okonomiyaki or Ajeon(Korean Pancake)

Okonomiyaki is a type of Japanese pan-fried batter cake with various ingredients. Okonomi means "what you like" or "what you want," and yaki means "grilled" or "cooked" thus, the name of this dish means "cook what you like, the way you like." The batter is made up of flour, grated yam, water or dashi, eggs and shredded cabbage, and usually contains other ingredients such as onion, meat (generally pork or bacon), octopus, squid, shrimp, vegetables, kimchi, mochi or cheese. Okonomiyaki is often compared to an omelette or japanese pizza.

Ajeon is a traditional Korean-style pancake which is a very popular appetizer or snack. It is made with flour batter, eggs, and green onions/scallions, served with a mixture of soy sauce & vinegar for dipping. In translation, “jeon” (pronounced “jun”) is the actual battered ingredients and “pa” means scallions in Korean. The basic type of this dish consists of just scallions along with flour and eggs but endless variation of this dish can exists by simply adding other ingredients such as seafood, kimchi, or vegetables.


Since I had already bought this Ottogi Flour Mixture for sometime, I decide to give it a try. It's pretty easy, just add in whatever vegetables, meat or seafood that you prefer and follow the instructions on the packet and pan-fry it till golden brown, drizzle it with some BBQ and Japanese Mayonnaise sauce and served.

Notes: You can get this Ottogi Pre-mix from most of the supermarket in Orchard Area or sometime in NTUC. Posted by Picasa

Rice With Durian

Since young I had this habit of eating Durian with warm white rice. For some of you, you might share the same interest as me while for other you might think... Er.... "Durian and White"! Actually, it really taste great to eat durian with rice, especially when you had those top grade can creamy durian. Do give it a try if you happen to have rice and durian at the same time..... It taste as great as the Thai "Durian with Glutinous Rice" dessert.....Posted by Picasa

Trying Of Dinner Catering

Heard a lot of good comments about this International Catering Pte Ltd service, so I decided to give myself a short break from cooking dinner. I cater for a Trial Period of 10 Days meal which the delivery man will sent the dinner on every Mon-Fri Evening except Public Holiday.


These are some of the foods that we had for the past three days of trial.... The food to me is consider as average, you can't except too much on this kind of homecook catering food. It's a Hala Menu and you won't find any pork in everyday dishes.

As you can see, the stir-fry vegetables and toufu are simply cooked with sauce, not much as putting in things like, prawns, meat or any other side ingredients like garlic or ginger. So after my trail of 10 days, I don't think I will continue for this. Maybe I am those person who know how to cook so these simple dish without any presentable decoration doesn't attract me much. But overal, the food is still nice and can consider to be a light and healthy dish..... For those who are interested to try, you can either called Hotline: 6289 8369 or check out at their website at http://www.intl.com.sg/ Posted by Picasa
