Effective Home Remedy for Cough = Steam Orange

My eldest son  has been coughing for quite a while.  After taking cough syrup and antibiotic, the cough still off and on kind of situation.   Doctors commented he has lungs infection and nothing serious to worry about.  
I found this home remedy for cough on a Facebook page and it worked so well for my children.  Try a few times on my son.  Now he had an occasional cough - not as frequent, severe or lingering like his previous experiences. The condition improves tremendously.  This home remedy for cough is very effective for my two daughters as well.  
Decided to put this into record and I  am  sharing with everyone on this effective home remedy for cough, but take note it may depend on condition of individual.  You now have your home made cough remedy that is safer and more effective than the over the counter brands. But do always keep in mind that  each individual is different and so is the severity of the cough, and what works for others may not necessarily work as well for you.  Sharing with you here another  earlier recipe on  Double boiled Pears for cough relief.  Hope that will helps.

Day trip to Danok, Thailand - Eat, Shop and Massage!

During the December holidays 2011,  hubby, Tammie and I went to Malaysia/Thailand boarder town  Danok, Thailand for a day trip of  Eat, Shopping and Massage packages.  This is our 1st trip to this boarder town.  We used to travel up to Haatyai to spend our holidays.  This time around we decided to explore this  busy and bustling  town  which has seen a lot of improvement during recent years!  After shopping along the shops along the way, Tammie has bought some new clothing for the coming Chinese New Year!  With all the walking,  shopping and bargaining we pampered ourselves with a relaxing and refreshing Traditional Herbal  Thai Massage.   Feeling Gooood!  Our trip end with a dinner at one of the restaurant (the food are not as good as our lunch at another  restaurant).   
Tammie enjoyed every bite of this non halal Samurai Burger at McDonald, Danok, Thailand

3 Cups Chicken (Taiwanese Style) 三杯鸡

 3 cups chicken, a Taiwan signature dish.  This dish requires three main ingredients,  Chinese cooking wine, soy sauce and sesame oil in the ratio of  1:1:1 .  With plenty of basil leaves and ginger, add some dried chili to localize the dish to make chicken dish a heavenly spicy  meal!  Most children do not like the smell of the basil,  so you may dish out some cooked chicken meat  for the children to enjoy before you add the basil for other to enjoy!
