Get it for free…

My doctor told me that I would need to increase my intake of protein but at the same time, I would have to avoid meat – red meat, in particular, dairy products, egg yolks etc…etc…etc… That obviously does not leave very much so I started taking chicken essence…

…seeing that it is a good source of protein…

I did tell my doctor once on one of my routine visits and he had no objection whatsoever. As a matter of fact, he did tell me to carry on so obviously it would be good for me.

I was browsing through the internet when I came across an article on cordyceps and kidney function. This paragraph says it all:
Cordyceps has a long history of use for the treatment of chronic kidney diseases and we’re starting to see more and more research backing this up and giving us a better understanding of why cordyceps is so beneficial when it comes to protecting and healing the kidneys. 

I was impressed by this in the article too:
Cordyceps is valued as a tonic herb in TCM and is used to treat a wide range of disorders including respiratory, kidney, liver and cardiovascular diseases, low libido and impotence and to support stamina and energy levels.  

People outside China were first attracted to cordyceps after multiple Chinese runners shattered track and field records at the Chinese national games in Beijing and their coach attributed their success to a diet containing cordyceps.

After I read all that, I switched to the one with cordyceps…

…right away whenever I buy chicken essence but of course, this range is more expensive.

I bought a number of boxes for around RM78.00 at the Chinese medical store and also the mini-supermarket in the next lane from my house until I saw them selling it at RM74.00 a box at my regular pharmacy. Of course, I started buying from there after that.

Just the other day, however, my girl was going to the mall near my house and I needed to stock up on my supply so I told her to get me two boxes from there. She got them from the supermarket at the basement/lower ground floor and came home with her purchases and this…

– one per box, so two altogether.

She was mighty pleased with the free gift they were giving away with every box of chicken essence with cordyceps, this very beautiful chawanmushi bowl…

…with a cover…

…at RM74.80 a box, just 80 sen more. I don’t know how long this promotion is going to last – I sure wouldn’t mind getting a few more, 4 perhaps…to make a set of 6.

DELTA – THE MARKETPLACE (2.311968, 111.847043) is located in the basement (lower ground floor) of the Delta Mall…

…Taman Seduan 8, Jalan Dr Wong Soon Kai (formerly Jalan Pedada).

  1. Yay, since you are regularly taking this chicken essence with cordyceps, I think it is good to grab another 4 boxes that comes with the very nice gift to make it altogether half dozen (6). Grab them before the promotion ends and add them to your collections. 😊😊

  2. Very pretty chawanmushi bowl with cover. If the expiry date is not too near, might as well buy extra boxes to get the free gifts especially since you are taking the essence on a daily basis.

    I think I will do that. The mall is just round the corner from my house, will hop over one of these days. Hopefully, they are not all sold out!

  3. Adoi. Your doctor is asking for the impossible – increase protein intake and yet he tells you not to eat so many types of protein. Oh! That chawanmushi bowl is so pretty!

    Sigh!!! Beans are fine, nuts too but we can’t get much here. Mostly salted and VERY salty – definitely not good for health!!!
    Yes, I’ve yet to go back for more of those bowls – hope they are not all sold out.
