Today is the 5th day in the 5th month in the Chinese Lunar calendar which means it's Duan Wu Jie or more popularily known as Dumpling Festival or Dragon Boat Festival. I would like to wish everyone a very Happy Duan Wu Jie!
No dumplings post since I only had my first one yesterday morning. Am sure by now a lot of people would have blogged about it. Otherwise check out my previous posts here, here and here about these dumplings. For step-by-step instructions on how to wrap the dumplings, check out Boo_licious post on how her aunt make them.
Try not to over stuff yourself with these dumplings ok else you'll feel bloated up. I saw an article recently that the seller recommended to drink soda drinks before eating them to avoid that bloating up feeling. Try and tell me if it really worked for you.
