[Product Review] Dr Lily's Aloe Vera Gel + Giveaway!

I was introduced to Dr Lily's Aloe Vera Gel by a friend of mine. I specifically remember her telling me, that it is the most natural multi-purpose gel that is ever made - "we can even use it to soothe mouth ulcers!" I was sold. Who wouldn't like something that is natural, work in most ways imaginable and is not chemically laden? 2 years down the road and several tubes of Dr Lily's Aloe Vera Gel later, I am still a loyal customer.

Since childhood, I have had bouts of eczema (inflammatory of the skin) breakout and frequent rashes, especially when the weather changes drastically to hot and humid during mid-year. So there was no surprise that I recently had a rash outbreak on my left leg.

If you are familiar with topical skin conditions like these, you will probably know how badly it itches and  the itch intensifies when you are asleep. Previously, before I got to know about Dr Lily's Aloe Vera Gel, I have had steroid creams applied, prescribed from the doctors. Although it helped to contain the itch very quickly, I've realized it left my skin drier and left scars in the aftermath. It also didn't help that I have sensitive skin so an overdose of steroid cream application sometimes led to an outbreak of a different set of rashes. I was miserable.

When I started on Dr Lily's Aloe Vera Gel application in replacement of the steroid cream, the immediate soothe it rendered on my broken skin, due to scratching, was really comforting. I specially like how it absorbs into my skin quickly without the sticky residue. Knowing that it is all natural, I was not afraid to apply as and when I needed to.

Here are some photos I took of the healing process, after application of the gel on affected areas.

The Only Multi-Purpose Gel My Family Needs

I cannot emphasize enough how much Dr Lily's Aloe Vera Gel has made life very easy for me when we go for outings (park, zoo etc) and family vacations. It's the only effective gel that works in multiple ways : for first aid purposes (cuts, abrasions, insect bites, blisters), soothes inflammation of the skin (itch, sun burn, pimples) and we also use it as moisturizer so there's really no need to pack more than necessary!

[RECIPE] Kimchi and Prawn Pancakes - Pajeon

Back in 2009, when we visited the land of kimchi (Korea), we didn't get a chance to try many types of food they have to offer as we went with a tour group. Almost all our meals were covered - hotpots, barbeque or bibimbap. We didn't get a chance to snack on street food etc. And the one time when a meal was not included, the kids insisted on having fast food. Oh well. We had to give in as Korean food was not their cup of tea. 

So finally earlier this year, I was introduced to pajeon, and I fell madly in love with it. And as with one who likes to experiment with cooking, I had to give this a go in my kitchen. More so, right after I saw a very basic recipe pasted along the window at a Korean mini mart at Square2, which I visited a couple of weeks ago. This is my adaptation.

Preparation time : 10 minutes  Cooking time : 10 minutes  Serves : 4

Ingredients :
- half a rice bowl portion of kimchi, without the liquid (store bought)
- 12 to 15 pieces of prawns, de-shelled (or more if you like)
- 1/2 cup frozen corn kennels
- 1 small sized onion, sliced
- a few sprigs of springs onions, sliced to preferred length (I like this, so I added more)
- Oil for pan frying

Batter :
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- salt to taste

Method :
- Prepare the batter and add in the ingredients altogether. Mix it well.
- Use medium heat with 1 1/2 tbsp of cooking oil.
- I've used the batter all at one go into my 9" frying pan.
- Once the edges are cooked and the centre begins to bubble, flip the pancake over. It takes about 5-6 minutes on one side.

I like mine served with kimchi on the side and dipped in light soya sauce. You can also add squids or clams in your pancake for different textures in your bite! Minced meat is also another option to try.

Till the next post, have a blessed week!
