Sweet Potato and Ginger Dessert Soup 番薯姜糖水

My grandma used to make this dessert.  Whenever, she cooked it, I would always eat more than my share.  I like the warm and slightly spicy taste of the ginger and the nice aroma of pandan leaves.   

1.  1 big sweet potato or 2 medium sweet potatoes (You can use different types of sweet potoates.)
2.  2 to 3 pandan leaves (optional)
3.  2 inches ginger
4.  some rock sugar (adjust to taste)
5.  1.5 litre water
