Happy Dumpling Festival 2010 !! 端午节

Today is fifth day of the fifth month of the lunar calendar on which the Chinese calendar is based, also known as DuanWu Festival.

Dumpling (Chung)

This year I did not make any dumpling, this dumpling actually was given by my previous babysitter (she babysit my three kids while I was working last time). Last year I did Nyonya dumpling, you may refer here.

Dumpling (Chung)
I like this simple Alkaline dumpling with sweet red bean filling, I must learn this dumpling from her one day.

端午节快乐!去年我尝式包粽子,可是工夫不到佳,不是很好。所以希望明年我再接再力,可包个好粽来吃。我也等看你下次包这甜粽,加油。 ;)

Alkaline Dumplings are my favourite dumplings! These look so good! Unfortunately they're incredibly difficult to find here, so I'll just salivate over yours for now =]

Happy Dumpling Festival Sonia. That is a very nicely made kngee chang. My mon made it with red bean filling one year but we refused to eat it. We still prefer the plain ones so we can dip it in gula melaka syrup :)

Happy dumpling festival. You mean you actually make your own. I saw a recipe the other day and am so tempted to try it out. Maybe I should just to get the experience of it.
