Where the BEE ended up finally..

Last week, Darling had a bad sore throat that he eventually lost his voice. He went to a Chinese Medical shop and bought this. I don’t read nor speak Chinese so I’m not too sure what they are. He told me to boil it for him so that was what I did… But I got the shock of my life when I tore open the packaging and saw what was inside..
Ok, at first they looked normal to me with all those Chinese herbs. But ONE particular thing made me jump!

Remember I posted about the bee or hornet that caused havoc in my living room? Well, many of you asked what happened to it in the end.. Here’s the answer..
I boiled it together with the chinese herbs! lol.. just kidding :D I did not do that! Darling took it to the road outside and let it off.

On a serious note though, the Chinese Herbs that Darling bought has dried bees in it! THAT was what made me jumped when I first tore the packaging. I’ve never seen bees as herbs before and just the thought of boiling and drinking them scared the heck out of me. Well, I did boil them for Darling but I did NOT even want to have a sip of it..

Nope, I don’t drink bees! :P

    Those may be a different kind of bees – don't just simply drink bees. In Chinese medicine, they use poison to fight poison…but never had any with bees before. They even have scorpions and centipedes…and snakes… Aiyor! You let it go? Should have killed it! These days, many reports of people being kiled by bees!!! Dangerous!

    Haha…I wouldn't want to drink something made from dried bees. There's a certain type of Chinese herb that looks like dried maggots…which is mostly seen in herbal soups.
