Dumpling Day

Happy Fat Dumpling Day! Just ate my dinner. Count as lucky that my father is free to cook dinner tonight, else I’ll be celebrating Dumpling Festival with a box of zhap fan T.T~
Wonder how other families will celebrate it tonight? Mine was a typical quiet one especially when my sis-in-law & B Chai are not around tonight. Hard not to admit that during festival days like these, I would prefer to have a merrier one instead of a..well, quiet one. I reckon things would be better if mum is still around (healthily, though). Perhaps if she is in the mood, she might wrap a dozen or two dumplings for us to eat-till-you-drop! Ahhh, mum’s dumpling’s the best! Customized perfectly to suit our taste buds. I like it white (glutinous rice without black soya sauce) and more peppery :) Now, I can only recall the taste in my memories… :(

Happy thing is, we got 3 “Pillow Dumpling” from Ah Po last week. Nope, I'm not talking about my Grandma. She is a relative of my grandparents, ummm, the relationship string is a rather long and historical story which I’m not too sure of. Every year she’ll make us dumplings despite the fact that we only visit her once a year and she is 90++ years old already! Salute to her effort & energy! Her legendary Pillow Dumpling is one of the things that we are looking forward to during Dumpling Festival. It’s not complete without her dumpling. Nothing can beat a home-made dumpling :)

Warm & fluffy pillow dumpling. Last one on the plate.

Now, I shall shut down my pc, go mop the floor…. and call it a day!
