Leaving on a Jet Plane

30 Mar 2011 – Happy Bday Jo… a day early!

Kum cao/甘草/Glycyrrhiza uralensis, also known as Chinese liquorice, which is used in TCM. This root could help moistens the lungs and stops coughs. It treats disorders such as shortness of breath and fatigue. Its neutral property treats coughing and wheezing of various etiologies that stems from either cold or heat and deficiencies of excess, with or without phlegm. Liquorice root has also been reported to speed the healing of canker sores. Would start chewing it when a  sore throat or cough is onset and most times it works for me!

Take care people, there is much coughing going on at present.


Thank you Sue, Pat & David for a wonderful dinner and gathering@Imperial Treasure, Great World City****for their mom and my sister, Jo’s 74th Bday. Lucas is as cute as a button and certainly has much to say for his age! Good to see Michael looking well after his surgery. To Les & Ivy, the wines are as usual great, but the problem is that it is difficult to drink wines anywhere else! Will then stick to champagne when not drinking their wines 🙂

Appreciate that the celebrations is a day early as will be riding the Tiger again tomorrow! And now to get a good night sleep – just love those zzzzzzzz
