Double boiled aloe vera and red dates

I have no idea what’s this drink for but I perceived that a recipe that goes with aloe vera could be beneficial for health in some way.

Ingredients used:

Aloe Vera, red dates, wolfberries, honey dates, barley, water, molasses sugar

Double boiled for 2 hours

Double boiled Chinese yam (wai san) soup


Egg noodles in double boiled Chinese yam (wai san) soup with quail eggs and nai pak

Heard so much about ‘wai san’ or naigomi, but never tried. Then I saw one relatively small piece at Jaya Grocer, so bought it. Added carrots, yuk chuk and red dates, together with a piece of chicken keel, to double boil for 2 hours.

Much confidence of trying it as I do see Joanne Teh gives her fei mui this soup. My daughter and hers is a month difference… So, ok la, give my girl! Lol!

I also air fried fu chok for myself.

Double boiled dried fig and scallops chicken soup


Thanks Veny MK for the recipe. I modified it with chicken keel and replaced empty corn cobs with carrot.

My ingredients:
One chicken keel
2 empty corn cobs
3 dried scallops
2 dried figs
3 honey dates
5 red dates

Double boiled for 2 hours.

The soup is really so yummy.

I cooked pressure cooked kai choy rice, added a chicken thigh for hubby. I did put some dark caramel sauce into the rice. And so the blackish rice actually puts my girl off. She refused to eat it and cried. =.=’ Then hubby let her taste some of the soup, which she likes it. So, I asked if she wants noodles with the soup. She nodded. So that’s her dinner.

One wok fried noodles for 3 with RM5

Yellow noodles: RM1.50
Taugeh: RM1
Bok choy: RM1
Garlic, onion and sauce: RM0.50
Pork: RM1

I can cook means I am feeling better, though feel a little weak. I can take in more food and drink now. *touch wood* haven’t puke since yesterday’s supper – which was an apple.

Double boiled mushrooms chicken soup


Noodles in double boiled mushrooms chicken soup

Mushrooms have many medicinal benefits. And since we are under the weather (actually, 3 of us at home have flu – but the one with the strongest immunity being the little girl), I made this double boiled mushrooms chicken soup. This is also a suggestion given by my miss lesbo.

Chicken keel
Chicken feet
Enoki mushrooms
Brown buna shimeji mushrooms
Shitake mushrooms
Half carrot
One bulb roasted garlic
Water to cover ingredients

Double boiled for 1 and half hours.

We have one portion of egg noodles and one portion of mee suah left. I asked her to choose one of them, and the girl wanted egg noodles. So, that’s her lunch. Mine is in mee suah.
