Life - oh-my! You look back, you reflect on it and then try to chart or either foresee your future. I know. I believe I have gone through enough especially my career evolvement. Been quite a journey actually, I have decided enough of working almost 24 hours. And made worst when you have a selfish, idiot bitch of a boss. Bitchy of course I'm sure you know generally are women., but there were other reasons as well why I decided to quit. Decision has been made to take a break before I decide the next course of action. Right! Perhaps I should tell you more about my future plan, but right now, it is this soup I would like to highlight. I love soups when the half-half is away because it is a convenient dish (read more at Old Cucumber Soup). For this nourishing and satisfying soup, its chicken, Chinese herbs mix, kei chi/wolfberry, dried longan, crushed garlic, ginger and spring onion for garnishing.
A packet of store bought Chinese herbs mix
A handful of kei chi/dried wolf-berries - soaked for 15 mins
A handful of dried longan - soaked for 15 mins
5-6 garlic - smashed/crushed
1/2 inch ginger - smashed/crushed
1/4 chicken - cut into bite sizes
Spring onion for garnishing ( shredded/sliced thinly)
Pepper and salt for taste

Put in a pot, add water (as needed), garlic, ginger and chicken.
