Is this ginkgo?

You know that I’m battling with this irritation in my ear right? Darling is not content with the western way of treatment that is showing no sign of improvement for me so he went the alternative way, the Herbalife way! :D
He went to a witch and that witch recommended this. I don’t know what this is as I’m not well-versed with these hocus-pocus stuffs! :P

What I DO know is, it is such a hassle to boil this drink. With my current condition I’m extra lazy to do anything as I can’t stay ‘awake’ for long. I’m always drowsy and prefer to lie down most of the time. So I ended up just chucking those things aside.
However while I was lying on the couch, I caught Darling doing these…(I quickly took my camera to capture these! haha)
He knocked those ‘beans’ to break open the shell…
Remove the shell..
There it is. The precious whatever…
But that is not the end. They said we have to remove that thing inside or it will be very bitter when eaten… Haih… so leceh!
But whatever it is, Darling being the sweetest darling in the world helped me with all those, tossed everything into the slow cooker and this morning, we got this sweet concoction to savour.
Our elixir of health made of love :D
Thank you Darling. I know I’m going to get much better FASTER with you around :D

    Dunno what nuts…but you'll find them in "cooling" drinks. Look like pistachios on the outside. Gingko…good for memory loss, I hear.

  • //

  • //

    yes, is not easy to peel the hard skin. I did it once and i think that is first and last i did it..LOL

  • //

    Sweeeeet habis! Your darling is simply the best :)Did you see an ENT specialist? I had a similar ear infection when I was in my teens. Can still remember that sharp, throbbing and killing pain until now. I cried like a baby too haha. My dad brought me to a govt hospital to consult an ENT specialist. After "pouring" some solution inside the ear a couple of times, a really HUGE ball of ear wax popped out and I got well soon after that. Maybe you should get it checked again in order not to prolong your misery? The pain can be quite unbearable at times, I know…

  • //

    Aiyo SO SWEET! That witch is definitely not me since I don't have ginkgo myself! LOL! If I were you, I'd pretend the ear irritation is still there so that I get to have this sweetness for a longer time! *evil*

    Yes, that's right, it's gingko biloba, supposedly good for improving memory. Wah, I really salute your husband for doing that. Yes, it's all an act of love. So sweet of him. P/S: I can never expect nor imagine my husband doing this, becos I know he won't.
