So one day, When I was doing my work at my office, I coughed soo badly until attracted my officemates attention. Mana taknya, batuk kong kang kong kang, sah2 la mengganggu orang lain kan. So, one of these fellow, Bothaina, suggested me to drink ginger water with honey. She said it is a really good natural thing for self healing. She also mentioned about how ginger makes an appearance in the Quran, being one of the two aromatics of Paradise; the blessed drink ginger-flavoured water from the fountain called Salsabil. The warming action of ginger, together with the cooling effect of camphor, symbolize the protection from cold and heat. That is an astonishing fact of ginger that I never knew. Btw, Bothaina is a Muslim from Libya, and she talks from a Muslim point of view.
So, I decided to start doing as what she suggested. Or to be more exact, as what my mum asked me to do since long ago. At the beginning, I took it twice a day, one cup in the morning and one before sleep time. After a week, I was amazed to see the healing sign. Daripada batuk macam king kong, dah kurang jadi batuk2 manja je tau.hehe. So, I continued taking the drink for another week. Alhamdulillah, batuk yang dah berbulan2 macam orang sakit kronik tu hilang sepenuhnya. And until now, I don't stop drinking it. Four times a week just to keep a good health. Tambah2 pulak musim sejuk camni, minum ginger memang best untuk memanaskan badan..=))
A cup of tea together with ginger and honey surely taste good
