Chicken soup for the soul

If you know me well, you'd know I'm a soup lover.
Basically I love all types of soup, especially chinese herbal soup ;)

Had this chicken soup (养心宁神鸡汤) yesterday during lunch time, which according to the cook, can helps to sleep better, as well as calming our mind. Hmm, should have taken this for dinner instead...

The soup has lots of wolfberries, lotus seeds and chinese licorice, and also slices of chicken.
Wolfberries are famous in improving eyesight, and reduce tiredness; lotus seeds are good in promoting health and is a good anti aging source; chinese licorice helps in detoxification and reduce cholesterol.

I think the recipe is pretty simple, should drink more this kinda of soups...

By the way, today's 20.10.2010, such a special day! I wish all my readers a wonderful day! ;)

  12. Hi HayLey,

    I think I do not know u well so I do not know that you are a soup lover. Hahaha!

    I like Kacang Ma and Ginseng soup. Sometimes I bought them from nearby eateries. I also believe that these two are good for health.

    Anyway, hope you will enjoy your soup.

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…
