It all started in August… around Raya time, if I’m not mistaken. Initially, it was few and far between. I tried hard to suppress it, but to no avail. The frequency and intensity soon escalated. And soon, my sleep was disrupted by bouts of coughing. It was so bad that I sometimes ended up vomiting. When I suspected, and later confirmed, that I was pregnant, I was adamant about not taking any medication. My hubby was at his wits’ end. Unwilling to let me suffer any longer, he searched online for a remedy and got himself busy…
pear, red dates, rock sugar, water
i. Peel the pear and slice it.
ii. Boil the pear with some red dates.
iii. Add rock sugar to taste.
iv. Let it simmer.
I dare not vouch for the effectiveness of this remedy but I can honestly tell you that I was really touched by Kiate’s loving effort. Thank you hubby~
