The next time I want to get my supply of dried flowers to adorn my soap, I’m *not* going to order it online from a specialty skincare store. Let me tell you what I’ll do instead.
I’m going to head over to my neighbourhood *yok choi poh* (chinese medicine hall) and ask the friendly uncle behind the counter to show me the nicest flower bud teas he has. 😀
This morning I happened to find a parking spot right outside the *yok choi poh* when I went to do my marketing. After getting my groceries, I kinda wandered into the shop and asked the uncle (I **have** to find out his name) if he had any rose buds in stock.
And what beautiful dried rose buds they were! Each one was a deep, purpley red, without any yellowing on the fringes of its petals. For under RM10 I could walk out of the shop with a 100g bag of rose buds, which is a LOT for my use. Ooh, I wonder what other flowers uncle has!
Can’t wait to see how they look in future soap batches. 8->
