Dumpling Festival & My Breakfast

 My Aunty Florence’s Bak Chang =)

Looks like the Dumpling Festival is here again. My aunt florence is up to her old handiwork of making bak changs, and other changs. Don’t know why, maybe its because I grew up eating her hand made dumplings that they taste the best to me. The fatty meat simply melts in the mouth, the chestnut is oh so savoury and sweet and the glutinous rice is just right and moist.



I yearn to learn from her. and of course her pineapple tarts, pastries, cakes, samosas, and mutton curry.

Breakfast : Kimchi Noodle Soup with Mushroom, Pineapple & Tempeh

Breakfast for me today was whatever I could find in the kitchen plus what my creative mind could make out. I stated Kimchi but I didn’t really use kimchi. Instead I marinated a few slices of wong bok with salt, chilli powder, a dash of vinegar, and pepper. That was my kimchi. Haha, tasted quite different though. But not to worry, the tempeh, mushrooms and noodles were real. I didn’t go around making them from some flour concoction.

Hmmm…maybe I should try…
