I had not been well recently. Probably due to the hectic schedule, the work stress, or may be the hot weather. I often suffer sinusitis pain nowadays. Sore-throat was unavoidable.
Because of that, my wife boiled some bird nest soup for both of us. Bird nest soup is actually made of hardened swift saliva boiled with rock sugar. The soup is known to be able to improve skin complexion (for my wife), to strengthen lung function and to sooth sore-throat (for me).
My wife put the hardened swift saliva (processed, and cleansed) into a bowl of hot water, boil them in slow cooker for hours. Add some chinese dates, dried longan, ginseng and rock sugar. And tadaaa.......
Not cheap though. This bowl can cost easily RM50. Aiyaaa.... we are not rich people, so, can have this once in a blue moon only.
