It is a traditional Chinese natural cure for insomnia handed down from generations. I love the sweet fragrant smell of long yan. It’s very appetizing and comforting.

Long Yan and Goji Tea01

Long yan (also known as longan, “gui yuan” 桂圓 in Chinese) is a popular tropical fruit. The flesh is very sweet and juicy. I and my family like to eat it fresh, even though it’s quite pricey here in Australia.

The dried ones, dark brown in colour, are less expensive, good for making Chinese soups, desserts and teas.

In Chinese medicine, long yan is a natural cure for insomnia. Goji (aka wolfberry, or Goji berries, 枸杞 in Chinese) is also found good for eye health, giving your a feeling of calmness and quality of sleep.

Salmon Cakes01

In Chinese cooking, steamed live fish is my first choice, not only because it’s easy and quick, but also I can enjoy the fresh and natural taste of the fish.

Amongst all kinds of fish, salmon is my most favourite. I’d go for salmon sashimi without second thought. If there’s no salmon available for sashimi or have too much salmon leftovers, this salmon cake recipe is a saver. I can’t over state how tasty, nutritious and healthy these salmon cakes are.

Best of all, these salmon fish cakes are freezer friendly for a hectic day.

Pork ribs often need longer cooking time on stove top, but that will be shortened a lot if using an electric pressure cooker, like Instant Pot. No matter what kind of cooker you got, you can try this simple yet delicious dish without any fuss. Stove-top instructions are included beneath though.


Kimchi is a traditional Korean side dish, yet quite versatile to be used in making various delicious and healthy dishes. By adding some Kimchi in soup, it helps to create a depth of flavours, and the whole dish becomes very appetizing.

The natural sweetness of radish is blended so well in the pork soup. The slightly tangy taste of Kimchi will intrigue you to want more.
