Lotus Seeds, Ginkgo Nuts Sweet Drink & Steamed Sweet Corn

On our way home after our morning walk, I usually keep my eyes open for pretty flowers by the road side. When I see one, I will stop to take snapshots before I continue on my walk.

I have been wanting to cook lotus seeds and ginkgo nuts sweet drink and I even have all the ingredients in my fridge. I finally got down to it. I soaked the dried lotus seeds before peeling off the skin. I cracked the ginkgo nuts and peeled off the skin. I also soaked the malva nuts (buah kembang semangkuk in Malay) and rinsed the malva jelly.
My delicious home cooked sweet drink or tong sui.
(Lotus seeds, ginkgo nuts, malva jelly, dried longan, and honey rock sugar)
Before serving, add some of the expanded malva jelly.
This sweet drink or tong sui tastes good when it is warm or chilled.
I also steamed the sweet corns given by a friend.
We had the sweet drink and steamed sweet corn for lunch.


Hold tightly to the pattern of truth I taught you,
especially concerning the faith and love Christ Jesus offers you.
Guard well the splendid, God-given ability you received as a gift
from the Holy Spirit who lives within you.
(2 Timothy 1:13-14, The Living Bible-TLB)
