Red Date Water restores youth and vitality

Sometimes I worry my friends with my pale face and lips. They would think that I'm so ill that I might faint anytime. According to Chinese medicine, this shows that my blood flow is not good and I have often been advised to drink Red Date Water, which has proven to work for so many people who did not have a good blood flow, especially females. 

Real-life cases

* Many ladies drank this magic potion and their face had that healthy pink colour again.

* Some ladies experience menstrual cramps during or before their periods. Red date water has helped relieve the pain. 

* People who use the computer for a long time at work, or who work a long time believe they have their strengths restored after drinking the water for a few days.

Healthy Seaweed Tofu Soup

Thinking about what to cook for my Canadian friends last week, I decided to make the dinner more Hong-Kong-ish, and have all soup, rice, main dishes and dessert. If you have read my article "Chinese Pot Soup", you probably remember we like herbal soup. But I don't want to frighten my friends with very special flavors, so I went for this simple Seaweed Tofu Soup. Of course, my friends loved it so much (I only cook what I love~^^)!

Great party food: Enoki Beef Rolls

Enoki beef rolls is a Japanese dish, but you know, Hong Kong people just enjoy trying different cuisines. Many of us like making them at home for lunch or dinner.

The most popular party food in Hong Kong

I went for a picnic with my friends last Saturday and shared with my friends the most popular party food in Hong Kong, Pineapple and Sausage Skewers. They loved them just as my Hong Kong friends and I did.

When I was young, I had Pineapple and Sausage Skewers for every school Christmas party, and most birthday parties. It is the simplest party food to make, yet the taste never fails anyone.

Starry Mini Pineapple Buns (Hong Kong Style)

Pineapple bun (Bo Lo Bau) is a specialty in Hong Kong. Pineapple buns do not really have pineapple inside. The bun got its name only because its cookie-like top crust resembles the thick rough skin of a pineapple.
