Guiling gao(龟苓膏)

aka herbal turtle jelly?
i know what you're thinking.. what? jelly again?! 1st attempt was laichee jelly, 2nd was orange jelly, and this is the 3rd. but please dont call me jelly queen, i just thought that cooking always starts with something simple and fast. lol. (ok i admit, excuses for lazy bump like me)
i swear the next project wont be jelly anymore ok! ;)

all you need are 5 sachets of guiling gao powder, 250g of rock sugar and approximately 1 liter of water.

dissolve 250g rock sugar in 945ml of water. boil them.

meanwhile, dissolve all the powder into 236ml of cold water and mix them. be sure to whisk them slowly to prevent the powder from clotting.

next, pour all the mixture into the sugar syrup and blend them well. fire off.

pour them into serving cups. make sure you do this step quick as the mixture will coagulate fast once remove from heat. so prepare the cups in advance. for better taste, i pour some brown sugar syrup on top of the jelly once they are cold. alternatively, you can substitute with honey or condensed milk. 5 sachets of powder is enough to make about 10 jelly cups of guiling gao.
super easy isnt? ;)

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

The unwelcomed birthday presents

(Note: Quite a long post, I skipped my afternoon nap to write this so please read everything ya!! xDD)

Past 2 weeks were really exhausting for me.

It all started on 20th April when Aden developed a mild fever, he was tired and sleepy, I let him skipped school for 2 days.

He seldom takes afternoon nap, when he does, it means he is not feeling well :(

The next day, it was Toby's turn😢
Poor boy, his temperature reached 39° and it was on and off~
Then I notice he started to have these cute double eyelids for a few days~ Haha not sure why~
He was feeling really unwell, very lethargic, no appetite and super duper clingy to me!

Then both brothers started to cough badly 😢😢 
So on the 25th, I brought them to the pediatrician again.  He examined both boys and suspected it could be pneumonia and even dengue (because their fever were on and off). Suggested to get admitted right away.
I wasn't sure if that's necessary because I knew once admitted, have to stay for at least 5 days (h…
