is really priceless!
Note : There's still a lot of flavour on e strained remainder. You can add another

not as concentrated as e infusion that we had earlier.

So, to kill e curiosity of e cat, I decided to add a handful of candied melon in. Oh

Whatever they display at e stall & whatever can be found in the bowl of 龙眼
drink can be e possible ingredients. So, anything is possible!

Ingredients (Serves 8 to 10, with bowlful of ice)


 400g Fresh Winter Melon
So, do you prefer e metal bowl photo that gives more originality look? Or this
 100g Candied Melon tauhuay bowl that’s arguably better looking? No matter what, taste is still e most
 3 pcs 罗汉果 important. Do give it a try! :)

 100g Dark 龙眼 Flesh


 250g Rock Sugar
 2.2L Water

Method
01. Discard e winter melon seeds, give e skin a good scrub. Cut ‘em into big
chunk (skin on), & set aside.
02. In a pot, bring water, winter melon chunks & candied melon to a boil.
Lower e fire (e lowest fire) & let it simmer for 2hrs. I'm lazy, I cooked
mine for 1.5hrs only. I just can't wait.
