Love the combination of pumpkin , purple sweet potato and sago in pandan flavored syrup soup. I had this the day before I admitted myself for the operation. ( for those of you who do not know what is happening...I had an operation done last week - 'subacromial decompression with impingement ' - now resting at home and praying for a speedy recovery ) A bowl of this sweet soup after dinner was what cheered me up knowing that I won't be able to cook anything until full recovery of the arm. Wish me speedy recovery , guys :) I will be on MC for the next one or two months....meanwhile enjoy this post until I bounce back with good health :) Btw typing this post with one finger....
