Blooming...(Water Chestnut & Sweet Corn Sweet Soup)

Tis' a rainy season right now. Despite that, there was a period of a sunny day with clear blue sky earlier today. The flowers in my garden were in full blooms. Look at them, aren't they lovely?

This cheered me up a bit. I was feeling a bit "under-the-weather" lately. And it also inspired me to make this dessert known as "Ma Tai Pau Sok Tong Shui" in Cantonese or just simply, Water Chestnut & Sweet Corn Sweet Soup. And since it is said to have cooling properties, I reckon it would be ideal for sore throat.

I hope you think this picture is lovely. And it did taste as lovely as it looks. Adding a lightly beaten egg also made it looked as if it is "blooming"...., don't you think?
