Jean C 30 days hydrolyzed collagen drink review

Good quality collagen supplement does not have to be expensive! Collagen consumption is particularly important for those who has bad lifestyle habits such as profligate eating and alcohol drinking,  smoking and regular suntanning. In my previous article,  I pointed out how to supplement collagen correctly.

Jean C,  Jeanne Calment in full,  is a centenarian who lived until the age of 122. She inspired the brand Jean C to produce collagen supplement that promotes Healthy Ageing at an affordable price tag for Malaysians.

Collagen production plummets as we age,  starting as early as 25 years of age. Collagen is essential for skin,  joint, bone,  hair and nail health. Each sachet of Jean C contains 3g of marine hydrolyzed collagen (We need about 5g in a day) . This form of collagen is the easiest to be absorbed by the body.  Marine collagen has the highest quality but those with seafood allergies have to refrain from consumption.

Besides that,  other phytonutrients in Jean C are derived from the following natural plant extracts:

- also known as, “king of carotenoids”, is 800X stronger than coq10, as well as 75x stronger than alpha lipoic acid to protect against damage and increase skin moisture retention ability.

Amla (Indian Superfood)
- has 20X vit C compared to orange which reduces the effect of premature aging, hydrates the skin to lighten pigmentation and
reduce scar.

Açai (Amazon Superfood)
- is rich in polyphenol and anthocyanins which area essential to control pigmentation, treat acne and lighten scars

Baobab (African Superfood)
- is also called  “ tree of life” superfood as the level of antioxidant is twice that of pomegranate. It is also rich in polyphenol to boost skin moisture and collagen production.

Lingonberry (Scandanavian Superfood)
- contains more antioxidants than blueberries & cranberries. Arbutin inhibits melanin production to prevent uv induced hyperpigmentation.

How to use?

Mix 1 sachet to 150ml of water. Take daily for 2 to 4 weeks to start seeing the results.

What does Dr Yingzangel think?

Even though studies done for the benefit of consuming collagen are not huge and exhaustive,  there is definitely visible improvement as early as 2 weeks. I could see that my skin has become more radiant with more even skin tone. I also love the refreshing grape taste that Jean C has. And what's more,  such a good product is only selling at RM89 for 30 days supply!

Just be careful that pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should avoid taking Jean C though because it's simply unethical to do research for supplements in this group of people. Therefore we do not have enough safety data to recommend use.

Authentic Korean Pub Food | Gangnam Street Kuantan Food Review

I really think Kuantan lacks good authentic Korean food before Gangnam Street was opened.  Most of the Korean food here is already Malaysianized with fairly standard menus. Gangnam Street is recently opened by a young Korean gentleman Kim whose mother is the owner of Ye Mi Won Kuantan. Read on to find out our dining experience.

Gangnam Street
16, Lorong Tun Ismail 8, Sri Dagangan Bussiness Centre, 25000 Kuantan, Pahang
017-986 7408
Opens daily 1pm to 12am

Gangnam Street is a children friendly pub and restaurant with spacious and comfortable dining environment. All the ingredients are directly imported from Korea!

We love the decorative trinkets displayed on the shelf.

Our sumptuous dinner started with a classic Korean appetizer- corn salad that washes down well with a can of beer. Sweet corn kernel pan grilled with diced capsicum and mozzarella cheese drizzled with Italian herbs and ketchup. This creates a healthy entree which tastes like pizza. Yum! Bing Boy's favorite.

My classic cheese pull photo.

Cheese Gaelanmali is a great side dish. An egg omelette with a slightly gooey centre with melted mozzarella cheese, cabbage,  seaweed and mushroom with ketchup. The dish should be devoured hot to enjoy the fragrance of melted cheese. Another children friendly dish.

Original YangNyeom is a must order! Korean fried chicken done well with a sweet soy based sauce that wasn't too sticky. It's lightly flavoured with golden crispy skin and fresh juicy flesh. We love how chicken breast,  drumstick and Maryland besides the classic chicken wings were also served for healthier lean protein portion.

Maeun YangNyeom simply means spicy fried chicken. Each servings come with a generous  10 pieces of fried chicken,  enough to feed 2 to 3 adults. The spicy sauce comes from the chef's secret recipe which was very pleasant and not irritating to the pallate. Lightly toasted sesame seeds further brought out the fragrance.

Spicy Teokbokki contains soft and chewy Korean rice cakes fried in a mildly spicy homemade sauce (with customisable level of hotness) with glass noodles, a half boiled egg, fish cakes,  Shitake mushroom, cucumber and cabbage. The flavor was well balanced with just the right amount of sweetness and spiciness with an aftertaste of the fragrant sesame oil.

Kimchi Bokkem Bap is none other than a warm and cosy serving of Kimchi fried rice with fresh shitake mushroom, pork slices, seaweed slices to give a healthy crunch. The sunny side up egg complement the taste very well with our favorite runny yolk.

Gimbap is a seaweed sushi roll with the following ingredients: sausage,  cucumber,  preserved carrots and egg. Nicely plated as the ultimate crowd pleaser which also provides wholesome nutrition with each bite.

Besides beer towers, fruit soju is also available. These are non carbonated fruit based drinks with flavours such as apple and yoghurt which are slightly sweetened to help digesting our heavy dinner.

3 complimentary side dishes also come with each order. They deserve special mention. The potato wedges are made from premium imported potatoes and baked until fluffy and soft inside. Preserved radish cubes are crunchy and works well to wash away the oiliness of fried chicken. The refreshing salad contains homemade lemon zested sauce with   iceberg lettuce, raisins,  roasted sunflower seeds, capsicum,  cucumber and purple cabbage.

This is thus far the best Korean food we have sampled in Kuantan with a verdict of 8.5/10! And more menu is coming soon as requested by their customers. We can't wait to try more of these delicious treats.

Is cheat day harmful for diet plan? | E-chiz Food Review

I have been doing clean eating for a while now.  After attending many conferences talking about pre-diabetes and fatty liver, I have become much more health conscious. But to fulfill 4 to 6 servings of fruits and vegetables is no easy feat. When I walk pass and smell the fragrance of fried food,  I still yearn to have some. So last weekend we had a lunch date out- cheat day at E-chiz KCM- proudly Kuantan owned and next to Chatime!

An occasional indulgence,  in any manner,  does not harm previous consistent effort in healthy eating,  if done right. An acceptable cheat day will be a meal that does not follow strict calorie counting. Because life becomes so dull otherwise! But I would say portion control is still important-especially to cut down on carbohydrates and avoid overeating.

Having deep fried food and some dessert is fine. Try to eat only until 70% full. For the rest of the meals during the day,  stick to the healthy suku suku separuh meal plan to avoid guilt and a total upset of healthy diet. Share the meal with a group of people for easier portion control that allows a chance to try more food variety as well. Read more to find out about Cheat Day/Meal here.

Fried stuff is always tempting. Look at the cheese corn dogs! The sinful combo comes with the classic breaded corn dog vs the healthier special corn dog. A huge sausage, coated with mozzarella cheese and bread, deep fried until golden then drizzled with more cheese sauce and chilli sauce. The special version has diced potatoes coated on the outside which provides more nutritional value.

The classic cheese pull photo! Yummylicious. Ask for sauces to be served on the side to reduce the amount of calories consumed.

There are 4 varieties of fried chicken available here. Each serving uses drumettes and chicken wings breaded and fried until crispy.

Honey and soy tasted savoury with a touch of the fragrance of honey. The most classic, non spicy option available. But it doesn't mean it's plain! I like how well balanced the flavor was.

Red hot pepper chicken wings tasted similar to the Korean Gochujang chicken. What I really like is the spiciness is mild with some sweetness and doesn't cause a spicy diarrhea afterwards. Lol.

Cheesy chicken wing is a must try for cheese lovers.  The amount of melted mozzarella was so generous that the chicken had to be literally dug out from underneath. Despite that,   it did not feel too weighed down and filling as the texture was light and not overly salty.

One of the popular flavour is the salted egg version. Salted egg goes really well with many dishes, even with dessert. And this E-chiz chicken wing is no exception. I had to order for extra portion because it was so good. That's why I said it's our cheat meal out.

A small bowl of sushi rice went down well with the sauces.

For children,  chicken nuggets were a good choice. They were served plain with ketchup when requested. Made from actual chicken meat,  it's lightly flavoured and still juicy on the inside. Knowing how picky Bing boy is,  we were glad that he actually enjoyed the nuggets.

Instead of ordering a meal set (which will give a serving of fries and salad for each set of chicken wings), we ordered cheesy potato wedges as a side dish instead to cut down the total carbohydrate amount.  We should have ordered for some salad to help adding to the daily vegetable requirement, but I forgot. The wedges were nice and crunchy outside but soft and fluffy inside. They went great with cheese and chilli sauce too! Wedges offer the same level of satisfaction but are healthier because they are baked, absorbs flavours much better and use much less oil.

Our verdict is 7.5/10! A quick fix for all the cravings at such an affordable price tag.

Eucalyptus in household use | Eucapro Products Review

Many know eucalyptus or gum tree leaves as fluffy koala bears' favorite food. But do you know that it has many other medicinal use? Gum tree leaves have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti fungal and pain relieving properties.

Hence, there are some evidence that it may be useful in treating asthma,  bronchitis,  dental plaque,  gingivitis, head lice,  and fungal nail infection. Besides that,  the aroma,  when combined with other essential oil such as peppermint, makes great aromatherapy for relaxation purposes. Read more about Eucalyptus here on WebMD.

Eucapro products are formulated in Australia. As the active ingredients are derived from plants,  the products are natural and safe without pesticides or even chemical fertilizers. Eucapro products are also free from artificial additives, aromas or flavorings.

I have recently tried the following products and am in love with them!

Eucapro Pure Eucalyptus Oil

This is 100% pure natural pharmaceutical grade eucalyptus oil which gives fresh and  lasting fragrance. It kills 99.99% germs.

Not only can it help in alleviating cold and sore muscles when massaged, it can also be added to laundry as a deodorizer. Rub a small amount to remove stubborn stains, grease marks on clothing, carpet, sofa and soft toys, as well as adhesive labels, annoying chewing gums and tar marks on cars.

Eucapro Natural Disinfectant Eucalyptus Spray

This is an air purifier and surface sanitizer that's particularly suitable for humid areas such as the bathroom, as well as a damp car interior during rainy seasons. It covers the musty smell and purify the air, even as strong as cigarette smokes. Besides that, it can also be in the family room, office and bedroom.

Stuffy nose at night because of cold or allergic rhinitis? Spray some on the pillow to help clearing nasal secretions. The downside of using grandma remedy (old newspapers) to wipe water and finger marks was leaving my hands stained. But now I can use the spray to do the same job easily.

Eucapro Air Purifier Lavender Spray

Made of pure lavender and  Litsea Cubeba Oil, spray 10 minutes before sleep onto linen to create a calm and soothing bedroom environment which helps to lull children to sleep. It infuses a great aroma into pillows and blanket.

Besides that it can also be used for multipurpose cleaner, to disinfect bathrooms,  to freshen musty drawers and wardrobes especially during rainy seasons.

What does Dr Yingzangel think?

I tend to avoid using harsh chemicals even while cleaning to prevent any remote possibility of my boys accidentally ingesting or inhaling household cleaning products. I feel comfortable in using Eucapro products when my children are around because the ingredients are non toxic. The price tag is also affordable with good quality.

If you are interested,  head on the Lazada or Camy BabyLand to understand more about Eucapro products.

Great food great company | The 92s Kuantan

I can't believe how much good food is there in Kuantan! That's why we have decided to move here permanently. Without the stress of traffic jam,  people are also friendlier and more laid back. So here we were to try the new cafe in town!

The 92s Kuantan
A7, Transit Point, Jalan Dato Lim Hoe Lek, Taman Union, 25200 Kuantan, Pahang
010-989 6980
Opens Wednesdays to Mondays 11am-11pm

It was always a Friday lunch break that was long enough for us to hunt for good food. And to savour them slowly without worrying about babysitting at the same time. We ordered food to share between 4 people. This new cafe is just a few doors away from Loft by Loteng which we also tried a few months back.

Fried calamari rings. Bread crumbed fresh calamari rings fried into golden color but it's still juicy inside.  Dipped with sambal, it's a great western and Asian fusion appetizer and crowd pleaser.

Their pizzas are must orders! We had 92s signature pizza. It has a soft, fluffy thick charcoal crust. Toppings were smoked salmon,  Japanese mayonnaise and Bonito flakes. This was a heavenly combination with mozzarella cheese with or without chilli flakes  and I'm not surprised why it's called their signature.

Beef lasagna was soft and warm. Full of the goodness of the tomato based sauce. Beef did not have any games taste. The fresh salad  made the flavor so much more balanced. But the portion was a bit small.

The chicken burger had a juicy patty sandwiched between slices of fresh tomatoes and crispy lettuce, as well as cheese. The portion of the fries was too generous and we couldn't finish it.

Beverage wise, there were mainly caffeinated and non-caffeinated options. We opted the non-caffeinated lattes.

Hojicha latte. Hojicha is green tea roasted in a porcelain  pot over charcoal, changing the color from green to reddish brown.

Green Tea latte. A classic latte which doesn't have the bitterness of green tea.

Overall,  we really enjoyed our lunch. Verdict 8/10!

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
