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...

  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...

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL...
