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...

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
