”Best Valentine’s Day gift in the season”

“最好的时节礼物”

Valentine’s Day, what’s your gift for your loved one? 

With the infectious Coronavirus, love isn’t exactly in the air this time round. But we still wish to give something more meaning and helpful to our loved ones on this special day. What’s better gift that you could do it personally at home, great to help fighting virus and yet visually pleasing. Yes, you can practically assemble my hearty jelly cups as a gift! Did I not tell that this recipe is super easy to follow? Shhh…….. :p

It’s really tasty, cooling, and likeable by all ages.

情人节,你送礼了吗?

这时候,除了口罩和消毒液,本身觉得送补身补气的食疗更有意义。你就是希望你爱的人健康平安,不是吗?赏心悦目又有益又是自己亲手做的 (而且非常容易,别告诉别人 shhhhh…… :p)。 总之,就没什么比送这个更好的啦!
