Lin Chee Kang (Lotus Seed Drink) is a refreshing traditional dessert common in Malaysia, consisting of Lotus Seeds, Gingko Nuts, Basil seeds (that’s the ones that look like little frog eggs), rock sugar, longan and jelly cubes, amongst others. If you’ve not tried this, don’t be put off by the list of ingredients; they go together like symphony.
You can have it hot or cold, though in this extreme heat, a bowl of chilly sweetness trickling down your throat is just what you need.
I’m now craving for more local thirst-quenching delights such as Ice Kacang or Cendol. I think it’s time to pay a Pasar Malam (Night Market) a visit.
Or some rain to cool everyone down would be good.
