Chrysanthemom, Wolfberries And Longan Jelly

I feel there is a "haze" in my own body!!

First the hot weather, secondly, my right eye went pinkish or is it reddish... then it spread to my left eye and now both of my eyes are feeling watery all the time.  I have been given medical leave by the hospital clinic for one whole week and the doctor told me that conjunctivitis normally takes two weeks to get healed.  And I am not laughing out loud over my medical leave which will extend till next week... why?  Cos I don't like feeling the way I am now... my appetite is gone and I am hot all over... if I were twenty years younger, I would feel like a Hot Babe.... but now I am feeling like an over-hot maid!

Suddenly my appetite changed during this past week... I have been eating yogurt with cornflakes for the past few days!  Knowing myself, I would have stayed away from yogurt if I am normal... Yes, I am AB-normal now, I feel like taking anything cooling and cold all the time now...
Yes, this is my dinner.... for the past week till today...
Even my normal and favourite dishes will not tempt me in any way now...
Oh dear, where has my appetite gone???
Chrysanthemum is good for eyes... for sore eyes...
And wolfberries too.... 
I decided to make something extraordinary this afternoon..
Chrysanthemum, wolfberries and longan agar-agar...
Something cold...cooling... to chill my body...
Oh, I made a mistake while boiling this...
The wolfberries are not supposed to be boiled together with the chrysanthemum...
This is called learning by mistakes....

  3. Your eyes still not getting better? Better stay from your pc for a while. Rest when your eyes get tired or watery.

    Actually I also feel my eyes more sensitive lately. Easier watery and sore. Must be the dust as been very hot and hazy lately but thank god we have rains since yesterday.

    Speedy recovery to you. Get 100% well soon. I love chrysanthemum. Always add wolberries and honey in my chrysanthemum drink. Yes. Only add wolberries when you want to drink. I just throw few wolberries in my cup and then pour chrysanthemum drink. Close lid on cup for a while or just leave it for few minutes.

  5. Hope you get well soon. Your bowl is very unique - I like it - looks like a mangosteen.
    Why are the wolfberries not supposed to be boiled with the chrysanthemum? How is it supposed to be then?

    1. Cos I am making agar agar... if boiled together, then I would have difficulty taking them out and putting them in my agar agar... I should have boiled it after I strained the chrysanthemum...

    2. Oic. Thanks for explaining.

  6. ooh, yoghurt with cereal.. that's what i used to have for breakfast everyday last time.. mine was yoghurt with muesli to be exact.. good lah, cleanse yourself for the time being and get well soon.. or maybe it's really the haze?? :p

    wow, i like that jelly lah.. but why is it that the wolfberries are not supposed to be boiled together with the chrysanthemum?? and, i thought chrysanthemum should not be boiled but just "gook" in hot water will do??

  7. I like kekwa drinks too especially when it's cold. I don't boil kekwa with kei chee. I would just pour out the ready kekwa drink and then mix with the kei chee and longan. It would taste better I suppose. I will try it one day.

    1. Yes, your method is right.. I am doing agar agar so I should have done them separately...

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
