Samgyupsal Set: Grill Pan and Portable Gas Stove

My daughter bought this Samgyupsal set – Hanaro Grill pan and Portable Gas Stove set on sale at Lazada.

She wants us to experience Samgyupsal at home since we can not go out to eat because of safety and health reasons. Besides, it’s cheaper and convenient to prepare food at home.

The set includes the multi-roaster and portable butane gas stove. It also comes with a free clever cutter. 

My First Cast Iron Frying Fan

A cast iron skillet is one of the kitchen tools I wish to have since I’ve learned about its good performance in the kitchen.

My daughter got me one. It’s the smallest cast iron pan, I think. It’s good enough to cook a sunny side up or fry a pancake.

This one is cheaper compared to other non-stick pans in the market. And it is compatible with our induction cooker.

I got this from Lazada for only 247 pesos plus a 50 pesos shipping fee during their 11.11 sale.

I like the brand because I’ve got two other cooking wares from the same brand name and they serve me well.

Cast iron cookware is a good investment because it’s heavy-duty it lasts for decades. It’s one thing you can give to your children as a family heirloom.

I may add a larger cast iron pan or the ribbed oval frypan for grilling in my next purchase list.

Virtual Christmas Party

Big gatherings remain prohibited this Christmas season due to the Covid pandemic. You can still enjoy the holiday season if you follow the health and safety protocols despite certain restrictions.

If you have a good Internet connection at home, you can organize your first virtual Christmas party and reunion via different platforms online. (Some friends on Facebook are doing this already.)

It will be fun to gather friends and relatives online. All you need is a party theme, food and refreshments, outfit, and music to play. You can even play different virtual games with your loved ones.

Since it also the season for gift-giving there are perfect and pandemic safe gift ideas for everyone. (Please check my previous post about Christmas gift ideas.)

In all the preparation for the holidays, health experts have advised observing minimum public health standards such as wearing face masks, washing of hands, and observing safe physical distancing even when you are with your family members.

These practices, experts said, have been proven to decrease the number of Covid-19 infections.
