Feeling Under the Weather…

I’ve been feeling unwell since Monday and lost much of my appetite. My severe headache is killing me, my throat is scratchy, I have blocked nose and can’t breathe. Arrrghhh!

Beehoon Soup/Vermicelli Soup

Luckily this bowl of steaming hot beehoon/vermicelli soup came to my rescue. Unlike my mother’s common belief that porridge/congee has magic healing power when one is sick, I opted for this dish instead. Ill or healthy, I’ve got to have my shrimp fix. A couple of head-on shrimps, a few dried shitake mushrooms, some fish balls plus the ultimate chili soy sauce, I think I am already feeling better.

    OH dear, you better take care ok!
    I’m sure with that boost of chilli, it will clear up your blocked nose. How come all of you under the weather at the same time, buddingcook, wandering chopsticks, now you?
    Get well soon, and gear up for CNY!
    Take care.

    i suppose anything that is steamy hot and soupy is good for healing! (esp. the blocked nose).

    hope you are feeling much better now, BY.

    It seems like everyone is getting sick! Hope I don’t catch it, but if I do, I think this recipe will nurse me back to health. The chili especially.

    BTW, it’s a testament to how good a cook you are that you make such elaborate dishes, even when you’re sick. Reminds me of that scene from the movie Tampopo, when the dying woman uses her last breath to cook her family a final meal.

  12. BuddingCook says:

    Hey all –

    You guys are so sweet! :)

    As I am still weak so I am not going to respond to you one-by-one, but thanks so much for your kind words…yes, I will get well soon as I want to serve up more great dishes for you all.

    Ha ha ha…maybe reading certain comments here and there have helped you recover faster. As they say, “Laughter is the best medicine!” LOL ;o)

  26. Karen says:

    Hope you are feeling much better. I am with you…noodle soup especially beehoon noodle soup rules my world. I always say, if I can only eat one meal for the rest of my life, it would be noodle soup.

    Although, I must say congee is amazing for a very dreadful hangover. Even my very gwai-lo husband has succumbed to the healing powers of congee.

  27. Rasa Malaysia says:

    WMW – Yes, sick or not, I need my dose of comments love. :P

    Karen – thanks for your kind regards, I am feeling better now. Ooooh, will have to try it out the next time I have a hangover. ;P

    This beehoon soup sure is good when one is feeling under the weather. I like the sound of your beehoon soup recipe and will give it a try soon.
