01 Feb 2021 Monday
A new beginning on Feb 1. Enjoying my brunch by toasting 2 slices of the Steamed Chinese Pumpkin Yeasted Cake with Red Dates and Raisins toppings which I freeze.
Then spread with Butter on top with a slice of KRAFT Cheese with 60% less Fat. Paired with a cup of Nescafe GOLD with Full Cream Milk without Sugar. Happy with this combination.
Making Burdock Root and Dried Longan Drink
I just spent half an hour to make this Burdock Root and Dried Longan Tea.
First I pare away the skin from a 5 inches Burdock root, then sliced to thin pieces. Rinse 1/4 cup Dried Longa and boil these 2 items with 10 cups water in my VISION Glass Pot. When it comes to a rapid boil lower heat and continue simmering for 30 mins. The drink is ready to serve hot or chill in the fridge.
1) Burdock root, long used in Chinese medicine, some herbal medicine specialists believe that the drink can improve your immune system, lower blood pressure, heal a damaged liver, and even prevent or treat cancer. It is also used to reverse the signs of aging and improve hair health.
2) Dried Longan is to strengthen the liver, spleen and kidneys. Longan tea is calming, in a similar way to chamomile. That may help with respiration, insomnia and anxiety. The fruit is high in vitamin A, meaning your eye and skin health will benefit.

Last Night Dinner
Last night lazy to cook. Just put Shisamo Fish (love this fish, full of roes), Siew Mai and two Big Paos from the freezer to the oven. Set 200 degrees Celsius and bake for 15 mins. A satisfying dinner for us.
In my Kitchen
In my cozy kitchen, thinking what to cook for my loved ones for lunch.
Enjoying my home cooked YAKI SOBA (Japanese Hawker Style Fried Yellow Noodle) as lunch for my loved ones. I am happy to see my Samurai had 3 servings. He said, “Oishii” (delicious in Japanese)!
