Chinese Herbs To Detoxify My Body

After all the exotic food I have taken, it is time to do some "detoxifying" of the body via Chinese traditional style.... Here are some of the food I have bought during the fasting month (Ramadhan)...
Of course there were much more than that I have bought and consumed during this one month of Ramadhan... love walking along the bazaar cos there were so much food... better not show too many... now looking back, feel kind of guilty eating so much...  LOL...
 
  Dinner at my mom's place.... 
she fried some rice and the rest were all from the bazaar stalls..
So it is time to Detoxify my body.... 
Bought these herbs from Chang Jiang... (sounds familiar?)
Her shop  :)
Actually these herbs were specially "prepared" to cure my shingles...
But since now I have recovered, the remaining two packets were for "cooling" down the body...
Instructions is 3 bowls of water boiled until remaining one bowl...
I did just that and when I drank it.... 
"OH MY... SUPER BITTER!!"
But I felt good after drinking it... seriously...
Isn't there a saying... Bitter is more effective?
(Well, I will boil another packet this weekend..... for my kids!!)
LOL....

  10. you can actually add some honey dates to take away the bitterness since you are taking it as cooling herbs. Otherwise, as medication, it has to be bitter.

  11. That's a whole lot of food on the table. Definitely need to detoxify once awhile. Health benefits things are normally bitter, like bitter gourd.

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...
