"Hi iynn512, sorry for the late reply. I guess it's hard to find such ingredients due to its shelf life. try Malaysian own edible flower - butterfly pea or bunga telang. I reckon there are other types of edible flowers available here. try and look around"

"Hi Kunchok Dedron, I recommend you to go to Seoul Mart in Mont Kiara it's located below Korean BBQ restaurant called Daorae. The shop sells Korean ingredients consistently unlike Jusco Pyramid."

"Hi VIPhottest You can go to Mont Kiara there're Lotte Mart and Seoul Mart. Fresh ddeok & frozen ddeok are available there as well as gochugaru and other dry stuff. you can also find odaeng and perilla leaves there. There's a Lotte Mart in One Utama they also sell fresh long uncut ddeok there. FYI hot pepper flakes is similar to our own coarse chili pepper Or since you live nearby, we can meet up and pass some of the ingredients to you. I usually buy the ingredients in bulk. My pantry is well stocked with Korean ingredients. what say you?"

"hello, jusco sunway pyramid has no longer sell them. if u wanna buy the ingredients just go to ampang. rice cake is made from rice & there's no lard or pork added to it. gochujang or hot pepper paste is just chili sauce similar to our own 'cili boh' but better..to me it's safe enough for me to eat & check out the recipe https://www.maangchi.com/recipe/ddukbokkie if it's safe for you then go ahead.. have fun cooking! i know i've enjoyed it for 2 years now in muslim beliefs once you have doubt in the ingredients then it's considered not halal for you to eat anymore.. & if you have strict rules about eating fermented food then i guess it's not safe for you to eat them either. hint: goto Ampang Avenue near Depalma Hotel.. Ampang=Koreatown"

"hello.. as you know teokbokki recipe does not contain any source of meat, pork or lard.. if you plan to cook teokbokki, to me it's safe coz the ingredients are made from plants. example, the ddeok is pounded rice & gochujang is fermented chili & beans sauce. but whatever you do, don't buy the instant ready made sauce. i'm not sure whether it's 100% halal. there's a lot of Korean mart in ampang especially nearby ampang avenue at Jalan Ampang Utama 1/1. there are lots of grocery store lined up. so u dont have to worry if one shop doesn't have an ingredient u need. just step to the next store. http://i881.photobucket.com/albums/ac16/anh_hb/korean%20day%20event/-0040.jpg *i took this photo at Phil Mart, a cornerlot shop, has a huge sign & impossible for you to miss it."

"Hello, here's a link on how to get there. http://k-popped.com/2008/02/k-popped-visits-koreatown-malaysia.html"

"Hello, I posted this a year ago. Nowadays Jusco Pyramid sells simpler products like Milkis soda, ramyeon & ready made teokbokki sauce. My go to shop now is One Utama Lotte Mart as the choices are much wider. At one point Carrefour Subang Jaya also sells Korean ingredients like gochujang & doenjang but somehow after a few months they only sell sweets & snacks. So, if you want to buy ingredients that available consistently, you can go to Ampang aka Koreantown. FYI sweet rice flour is a regular tepung pulut."
