My friends are constantly amazed by my budget meals and it happened again today. I shared in LP's cbox that I was going to have an 80c lunch. More precisely, it was going to be a packet of nasi lemak with chilli, ikan bilis and ikan kuning wrapped in banana leaf. What some said:
Guess what. I was mistaken. It was 70c and not 80c! My lunch:
Sometimes, I also like a cup of tea after lunch and here is a picture of my cup of tea today:
What is that twig in the water? That is Gan Chao (liquorice), a chinese herb. This is good for the heart, spleen, lung and stomach. It detoxifies and removes heatiness. I would throw a piece into a mug of warm water and let it steep. Here is a picture of a packet (almost depleted) which I bought from my favourite Chinese medicine hall a few months ago:
And the price? A picture is worth more than a thousand words:
Cheap? You bet. Gan Chao tea is good for our health and gentle on our wallets! In case you are wondering if the health benefits from a cup of Gan Chao tea would cancel the unhealthy effects from a packet of nasi lemak, I don't know but I'm happy. Haha... ;)
