Hot Hot Hot

>> May 4, 2010

Spring brings hot-hot-hot weather… and it’s not even summer really, there are some thunderstorms in the late afternoons which provides some reliefs but at times the humidity level can be quite unbearable!

The average day temperature is on the high of 32-37°C. Getting a tan is not a problem here! Haha… Snow White I’m not but I’d rather stay indoors with the air-con full-blast…and preferably a tall glass of refreshing fruit juice with ice cubes filled to the brim!

But, I still remember my Mom’s words that drinking ice-cool drinks will make one feel warmer, an after-effect, actually. So, it is advisable to consume ‘leong-cha’ or cooling herbal tea.

I made this soothing sweet drink to keep our throat moist in this hot weather.

100g Dried dates (dried candied dates, )
100g (In Cantonese, “Fung thong” or )

Just boil the above with 2 litres of water for 15-20 mins, cool and serve. It can be served a 'tong sui"

Pearlyn - yes, it's terribly hot and it's not even mid-year yet! I hope there won't be dry spell and the dreaded 'haze' ... :-(
