Pancake or crepe ?

I was tickled by a tweet from @IndonesiaEats, about why does people called crepe with filling as pancake. Crepes and pancakes are so different. Crepes are thin and light pancakes which are usually folded over, while pancakes are flat cakes of batter fried on both sides. Some people say crepes and pancakes are the same, pancakes are British and crepes are French, just another name for the same thing.

Crepes are supposed to be thin and elastic, pancakes should be thick and fluffy. Just like this one, these are actually crepes rather than pancakes. Thin and elastic, of course filled with something and rolled up. I don't know why the mag wrote it "Durian Pancake" not "Durian Crepe". Maybe they think thick or thin, elastic or not, rolled up or not, with or without filling they all are the same ! And the "crepes and pancakes" mistakes continue to happen, lol.
