What do you do for a living?
I’m an Interactive Multimedia Designer who works in a digital marketing agency. I’m passionate in creating visuals on variety of platforms including photography, illustration and 2D animation. I believe that colourful and meaningful artworks will bring joy to viewer’s life!
You've recently started to share your baking creations on your Instagram. Has baking always been a passion of yours?
Baking has always been my passion but I couldn't find a time to do it. Due to Movement Control Order (MCO) in Malaysia during March this year, I finally took the opportunity to start baking. It all started by creating the trendy Dalgona drink using Niko Neko Matcha powder during MCO period. As I really love eating bread, so I asked myself why not try to bake one? From there, I experienced the fun of baking.
What's the most enjoyable part of baking in your experience?
I love baking bread! The process of kneading dough with your own hands is so enjoyable! Even though it’s not easy to knead dough perfectly by hand, it’s so satisfying when I succeed! Besides, what makes baking enjoyable is when my creations look appetizing and visually appealing in the photo.
How did you come up with Genmaicha Accordion Potato recipe?
Stumbled across this viral accordion potato recipe on Instagram and I thought this could be a perfect choice as a delicious bite-sized snack to munch on for a Netflix and chill session! Therefore, I decided to modify it with MOKUREN / Genmaicha.
Why did you choose MOKUREN / Genmaicha for this recipe?
MOKUREN / Genmaicha has a very strong rice cracker-like flavour and toasty aroma with a slight umami aftertaste. So, I think it’s a perfect match for a savoury snack like this!
