Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Lor Hon Guo Herbal Drink

We have been having very hot weather and that calls for a cooling drink.   So  I made lor hon guo sweet soup as recommended by my friend Josephine. Taken  hot or put in some ice and you get a refreshing drink.  The lor hon guo cost about RM1.20 each for a small one whereas a big one would cost about RM3.00.  The lor hon guo is usually sweet (if you are unlucky you get a bitter one!).  All the ingredients can be purchased from the Chinese pharmacy shop.


2 small lor hon guo  -  wash and break into 2
a bunch of kum cho
5  candied dates (mud choe)
10 red dates
2.5  litres water

1)     Put all ingredients into the slow cooker and boil for 6 hours.  I did not have to add any extra sugar.
        ( Add sugar if you find it not sweet enough).
Note:   You can also add in dried longan to this soup.
