Most of you know that I’ve been coughing close to 3 weeks now and after 2 visits to the GP, my cough was no where better. I still have lots of phlegm and my throat get itchy especially during my zzz time at night. I kept drinking water and that disturbed my sleeps as I have to wake up and go to the loo the entire night!
Then last week my mom told me to try warm Coke with ginger. I was a little doubtful initially but I’ve heard about some Hongkies taking warm Coke to sooth their throat so I decided to give it a shot! And I must say, its kind of works!
What you need to do is open a can of Coke and put it into a double-boiler and boil it with a piece of ginger of 0.5cm thickness for about 30 minutes. Drink it warm.
Both Darrius and myself have been taking it for the past 3 days and I can feel my throat is less itchy now. Will get a few more cans later so we can have it for a few more days.
