Hello, busy-bees! The weather in my hometown has been crazy lately. It’s raining all day, and even when the rain stops, the sky remains cloudy. Down with a terrible flu for 3 days now, this afternoon I decided to stop feeling sorry for myself and head to the kitchen instead. I’d like to make something simple and warm: like this home-made ginger tea.



  • 2 fresh gingers, grated (or you can use more if you’d like it stronger)
  • 2 teaspoons of green tea (you can replace this with other kinds of tea like jasmine, or if you’re lazy, a teabag will do)
  • 4 cups of boiling water

Put your grated gingers and green tea into the teapot, and then pour the boiling water. Leave it for a while, then pour it into a cup. Add a tablespoon of honey or sugar if you’d like to have a trace of sweetness there. You can also add a slice of lemon to enrich the taste (I like to have it with honey only).ย It’s a very simple recipe and extremely easy to make, but it gives you such a lovely extra warmth on rainy days.



For the time being, stay healthy!

  1. It’s been raining here in Portland, Oregon too. I have a cold and just saw this in my reader. I actually have ginger in my fridge and will try this as it sounds delicious ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!

    1. Really! Wow, it’s funny to think of this rain as a “universal rain” (it’s raining again now as I typed this). I have no idea why I said such a strange thing ๐Ÿ˜€ am gonna blame it on the flu! ๐Ÿ˜€ Enjoy your own cup of ginger tea! ๐Ÿ™‚ *cheers*

    1. aaaah! yes, gula jawa! I didn’t think about it before, but yeah, I guess it would give such a unique added flavor! will try one with gula jawa today! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. yang aku temukan, teh itu nikmat saat dinikmati di saat yang tepat, tetapi ini ada penemuan kalau teh bisa lebih nikmat jika dipadukan dengan rasa yang lain ๐Ÿ™‚

If you made it this, far, please say 'hi'. It really means a lot to me! :)

Maybe you've realized that you want to change direction. Maybe you've had enough. Maybe you won't tolerate certain things any longer. Because quitting can also be a courageous act. Because quitting can also be an act of self-care and self-respect.
"What role would I be happy to play in life today / this week / this month / this year / at this stage of my life?"ย  When I think about it, this question feels lighter and more playful than what-is-your-life-purpose, but it can also give us a hint about where we may wish to go in life.
What are the things you would do anyway, even if you know you would fail? What are the things you would do anyway, even if you can't make money out of it? What are the things you would do anyway, even if you know you won't be great at it?
