First COVID-19 Vaccine

2 Mar 2021- 8Treasures Tonic-Soup With Black Chicken

Sat: 1stCOVID-19shot with 9regristations, 12vaccines and 6discharge stations, was impressed at how everything was so efficiently executed. @MPCC 0850hrs, vaccinated@0900hrs, under observation  for 25-30mins

0925hrs was discharged to do grocery shopping – no sweat! Walked pass by this little red car bringing back cheerful childhood memories and making my day.

To pamper myself, made 8TreasuresTonicSoup八珍汤 – ready package consisting of

  1. CodonopsisRoot – DangShen 党参
  2. SweetPotato – BaiShu 白薯
  3. PoriaCocos – FuLing 茯苓
  4. LicoriceRoot – ShengGanCao 生甘草
  5. SzechuanLovageRoot- ChuanXiong 川芎
  6. PeonyRoot – BaiShao 白芍
  7. FoxgloveRoot – ShuDi 熟 地 黄
  8. AngelicaSinensis – DangGui 當歸          +BlackChickenbought@FairPrice$5.35.

Taking time to slowly take the CNYdecorations down with a slightly sore arm. 

Now with my 1stCOVID-19vaccine taken, will await to see the effects before the 2nd-shot on 20Mar. In the meanwhile, tkx to niece Kat in NY/USA for this great share – enjoyed this interconnectedness of nature and our relationship to it. Never to get lost is not to live and the best sort of walk is the one on which it doesn’t matter twopence whether you get anywhere at all https://www.brainpickings.org/2018/04/18/nan-shepherd-living-mountain-walking/

Favourite AT painting of TeamMofo/Guinness, Mofo, Pilgrim&Corky heading thru’ the WhiteMountains by Chuck Becky Aldridge. Looking forward with happy thoughts as to when I can see my family again and can hike, trekk or walk with my AThiking-buddies.

Sun: enjoyed the first moon on this 2021LunarCalender with no more sore in the arm or any other side-effects, hopefully none in the next few days to come. Boosting the immune system with tonic soup&rest – managed to gross-out some ppl with this pix before deboning the meat from the chicken to the final presentation to be served, lol.

Tkx to Gel for breakfast company and for being a GuineaPig for the soup which tasted much better than it looks, so do not judge the book by its cover hahaha.
