Ben chin, this is specially for you 🙂 I love this dessert as this is really nice to drink and beneficial for skin 🙂


30g of Lotus Nut (half the nut and get rid of stem in between) (莲子)

30g of Dried Longan Fruit (龙眼干)

30g of red dates (without seed) (红枣)

25g of snow fungus (雪耳)

some rock sugar or can use normal sugar

and of course, water (I used about three bowls of water)


  1. Soak the dried snow fungus for half an hour or till soft to cut. Trim the hardened yellow part on the bottom and cut into smaller pieces.
  2. Rinse the other ingredients.
  3. Heat up a pot of water and bring to boil.
  4. Add the snow fungus, dried lotus, dried Longan fruit and red dates, reduce to low heat and cook for one hour or more, until all ingredients are soft and tender.
  5. Before serve, add some sugar (rock sugar) to your liking.
  6. I love to add some Goji berries before serving. Goji berries are good for your eyesight!

Another cold day

Another cold day. Hubby fell sick today! Not good.. too cold I guess. He said it is because he stopped drinking coffee two days ago! Haha..

I made 腐竹焖三层肉! This is my first time making this dish! Normally my mum will make this for us! Tasted decent but not as great as my mum’s cooking. I didn’t take a photo! I am getting adventurous with different dishes.

Another day I made chicken curry (M’sia style)! Tasted really good! I think I probably can start a small Malaysian eating shop? Might earn more money than doing my day job now!

Also made 莲子雪耳糖水 another day! Absolutely nice to drink in such a cold day!
