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! ;)


  1. Count me in, me too.. a soupy lover. Anything soup.. noodles... I want soup... hardly have dried ones.. but hubby is the total contrast of me.. still wondering how we "clicked:. :P

  2. yea, herbal soup is very good for health~ I love it too =D

  3. So, did you sleep well last night? Did you have sweet dream after taking this soup?

  4. Your soup looks tempted. Next round I shall order herbal soup from this restaurant!

  5. I love soup too.....and love to eat the wolfberries. Even YX loves to eat that too! hehe....

    Ohh.....if you did not mentioned about today's date, I din't even notice it! 20.10.2010.

  6. Inspired Momx1, oh high5! Haha, well perhaps you and your hubby have something else in common ^^

    EVelyn, yep! Herbal soup very 'por', very nutritious for ladies ^^

    Yan, well, I dint slept too well, woke up very early this morning =_=

    Yvonne, ya, still several types of soup we havent try!

    mNhL, sometimes I even have wolfberries drinks, just prepare a glass of hot water, put in some wolfberries and drink like plain water ;)

  7. Herbal soup is always my favourite choice of soup!;)

    Oh... I didn't even realize it's a special day until you mention 20/10/2010, I see!

    A wonderful day to you too!^-^/

  8. Somehow,i don't really like herbal soups, they tend to be very oily, i would prefer those simple vegi soups, easy to boil and all..

    hey take care now ya

  9. Alice Law, haha, looks like many of us like herbal soup!

    Eugene, well, quite true la, but its ok to have it once a while ;)
    you take care too!

  10. Me too! I love to drink hot and piping Chinese herbal soup too! Oh, ya hor, I didn't realize it's a special date day until you mention it. :-)

  11. Alice Phua, LOL, how come not many people realise ya? ;)
    Hmm, if everyday also can drink chinese herbal soup, sure we have good complexion, as well as good health!

  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.

  13. Hi Willie, I really did enjoy my soup!
    Kacang Ma and Ginseng? Hmm, I think I never try that before.. perhaps should check it out someday ;)
    You have a nice day!

  14. Hi Hayley, I am not a soup person, unless its hum choy pai kuat tong, ha ha.
    That soup looks delicious!

    My wife always makes tong suey too, but will grumble I only take abit.
    But iced coffee? Anytime!
    Have a nice day. Lee.

  15. Lee, I'm sure your wife cooks well, even with tong suey! Next time got chance, send some over to me please :P
    I know you like coffee, but I'm totally different with you :S I dont like coffee, though it smells nice...

    Thanks for dropping by and you too, have a wonderful day! ^^

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

Just a short note

Hello hello!
Was away for the past few days hence the silence here ;)
Went Bangkok with my bff and was so tired and exhausted! But enjoyed ourselves very much.. It's a pre birthday celebration trip for us as we are born in October...
Shall catch up with you guys soon!
p/s: SK and Wenn, I have received the gifts sent from you both, million thanks ya! ^^
