Manuka Honey Versus Hospital Medication

I was told that Manuka honey is good for cough and I remember someone blogged about Manuka recently.... so this morning before going to hospital, I went to the pharmacy to get a bottle of this much-heard-about honey.

Gosh, it was not cheap though.. in fact very expensive... one small bottle of 250gm cost RM64 and the 500gm one cost RM94 ($31usd)...and after some mental calculation,  the Big Honey came home...
Written here..it has been established scientifically that Manuka Honey has an antibacterial activity.
Beneficial for aiding the natural healing process of wounds, burns, sore throats, digestion and winter ills. (wounds and burns too?)

Apart from the purchase, I went to General Hospital to get a medical chit... (really sick ma) and the doctor prescribed these to me...
so... what shall I take now?
this above or this below??
Well, goods are not meant to be wasted, right?
So I have taken the natural honey plus lemon
and dosed myself with the cough mixture as well..

Hope tonight I can have a good night zzzzzZZZZZ!

  1. Manuka honey is good for coughs and soothes the throat. You can also steam the honey with some ginger then eat by teaspoon or mix into a hot drink.

  6. Honey and lemon are good to bring out the mucus.
    I highly recommend Manuka Honey. It's good to treat sore throat and even cold sore. My hubby used to suffer from acid reflux, he spread manuka honey on half a piece of bread and ate half an hour before food.. it's really effective!
    Do take care and get well soon!

  18. So what is the verdict? I also recently started giving my girl Manuka and true enough if she gets the cough, they were milder and she healed much faster. I would say money well spent :)

  19. I do heard that Manuka Honey is good for cough.
    For me,everytime when I have a cough, I will drink a cup of warm almond juice(easily avail at supermkt). It works for me. No medicine is needed to cure my cough.

  20. I heard from a friend that Manuka Honey works wonder for cough.. Rest well and no blogging for a little while. :)

  21. Take honey leave the medication aside first but just a stand by in case your cough didn't go away. If your cough stops then the honey is effective on you.

  22. Oh!..what happened my dear friend. Still not in good shape. I also hear lemon and honey is good for cough. If it works wonder then it is worth to spend. Take good care and hope to hear you are getting better.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
