Before we go on, we would like to give special thanks to the following sponsors:

Thank you Shogun by La Gourmet for letting us try your super good and durable non-stick pan. The pan we used in this video has a non-stick granite coating. We’ve been using this for slightly over a year now and it’s still in brand new condition. Love it! Just a note to caring for your non-stick pan, please do not use olive oil in it because olive oil has low smoking point which will spoil the coating of the pan. Also do not use any metal stirrers in the pan because this will scratch up the surface of the pan and spoil it. When washing your non-stick pan, please use sponge – not those wired ones. This again will help to protect your non-stick surface. If you like to buy Shogun by La Gourmet pans, head up to Robinsons, Tangs, Metro, Takashimaya, OG, BHG etc in Singapore to get one for yourself or your loved ones. Those staying in Malaysia can also get the pan from most leading departmental stores in the country.

We also want to thank GoodSalt for giving us their products. We never knew such good product existed! How could we have missed it. GoodSalt is definitely good for everyone – both healthy as well as those who are already suffering from hypertension. You can get GoodSalt in Singapore from NTUC, Cold Storage and RedMart. You can also get GoodSalt from Amazon. Here’s the link:
