{Lunchbox} Easter Chicky Bento

Happy Easter Sunday! I hope you would like this Easter Bento post that I have prepared you. Since our family would be attending Sunday church service plus a house warming event, I won't have enough time to prepare something special for my boy on Easter, therefore I decided to make this Easter Chicky Bento for him yesterday.

For this bento I have used 3 cleaned empty egg shells to act as food containers instead of the usual bento paper/silicon case. And with these shells, I have created some Easter theme such as "3D Pumpkin Rice Chick", "Hard-boiled Egg Chick" and "Artificial Egg".

{Photo Friday} Easter Cupcake Baked In Egg Shells

(photo credited to Celes from Celestial Delish)

Hi everyone, hope you have a wonder Good Friday! Today's post is slightly different as it consists of Photos, Guest Post(from Celestial Delish), and team recipe. Since Easter is this coming Sunday, Celes from Celestial Delish ask whether I am keen to do a Easter Cupcake Project together with her. And my answer is definitely "YES" when she brief me on the plan. So without hesitate, we start sourcing the necessary ingredients and as well as testing some of the egg dying process before the actual baking.

And guess what! After almost about 6 hours in the kitchen starting off with draining the eggs from the shells, washing and drying the shells, preparing colours to dye the eggs, getting the egg batter and filling ready. Finally you can see what we have achieve at the end of the day from the photos shown in this post.

{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 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 and Everything Korean facebook page to create awareness this misused of photos and copyright issue. But sad to sad, both 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 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!!!!

After my emails addressing to 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 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 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 or their merchant till date.

First photo above featuring two of my  Happy Call Dishes whereas 2nd photo below 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 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.

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.


Email received from 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.

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.

Girls' Day Out with Häagen-Dazs

Yesterday we had a wonderful afternoon at the "Girls' Day Out with Häagen-Dazs" event whereby I get to enjoy simple and yet luxury treat with my family and girl friends at Häagen-Dazs, Holland Village outlet. During these 3-days media event, Häagen-Dazs introduces a new high tea concept where we girls get to catch up with friends and bond over three new irresistible treat from the decadent High Tea Affair, Macaroon Melange and Petite Temptations.

With this yummy treat, I believe you would set a date with your girlfriends, mum or loved ones in order to enjoy this luxurious high tea plus the limited edition Petite Temptations which are available at all Häagen-Dazs outlets(location HERE) nationwide, starting from 27th March 2012 - 31st May 2012.

Häagen-Dazs created this High Tea concept in order to ignite strings of feminine bond as well as deliver a luxurious day out for the girls. With this indulgent treats, quality time spent and smiles would definitely brings relationships together with ever mouthful shard between friends and loved ones.

My heart was totally captured by this Häagen-Dazs 3-tier High Tea set known as "High Tea Affair" when it was served yesterday during the media preview. This High Tea set comes with:-

~ 3 mini scoops each of "Cookie Dough Chip, Belgian Chocolate and Strawberry Ice Cream" on the top layer;

6 heart throbbing assorted flavour mini ice cream "macaroons" in the middle; and

~ lately end with some fresh and beautiful slices of kiwis, raspberries and grapes.

Just to share, at first upon looking at the ice cream macaroon I didn't even realise that the outer "shells" were actually made with ice cream instead of the usual almond biscuit shell for macaroon. And indeed having these sexy French treats that served in assorted flavour of ice cream has definitely marked my day.

Next we have Petite Temptations which is a limited edition tat comes with chunks of buttery cookie dough and sweet fudge chips hidden in folds of the delicious Häagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream. On top of that it was also accompanied by drizzles of mango and chocolate sauce which enhance overall taste to its fullest. We simply love the feeling of the cold ice cream between the crunchy cookie dough which makes a perfect combination for this treat.


Apart from the ice cream on it's own we also tried their in-house delights such as "Berry Cool" that serves with combination of Strawberry Ice Cream, Raspberry Sorbet, Milk and Strawberry sauce. Personally I am not a "berry" liking person as I am afraid of its sourish taste but this Häagen-Dazs berry treat do great even for my liking.

For hot beverages, we have "Earl Grey Tea" and "Cafe Belgian Mocha" which blend using Belgian Chocolate ice cream with steamed milk, whipped cream, chocolate fudge and a shot of steaming espresso.
