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.

    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...

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

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
