Anyway,this kind of soup is very good for healing, after gave a birth or when someone got cold & flu.
I found this recipe from my Indonesian magazine, originally this soup came from china (like remedy soup), but many Chinese moved to Indonesia and bring their culture and recipe, we love Chinese food as well as our traditional Indonesian food.
I took this picture with my pocket camera, because it was a sunny day that day, i should have post this soup that time (about a month ago), but i totally forgot, until i have a look my albums today.
I can make this soup again today, because my daughter had a sniffle and cough, the ginger on this soup will make her nice and warm.
