Dumpling Festival (端午节)

Today is dumpling festival!

I was received a call from my dad in last morning at 7am, he
told me he had deliver some dumplings to me. Those dumplings
were made by my mum. I was greatly touched at that time!

In past few years, I was made some dumplings also to enjoy the
festive air. But I had told my mum that I'll not prepare for this
because I really busy with my office work this time.

My mum had made 2 types of dumplings, one is savoury dumpling
another is an alkaline dumpling with red bean paste. I like the
alkaline dumpling because it wrapped with pandan leave and looks
mini size. After cooked, the taste and smell very nice!
