Dim Sum - * Pointing to the Heart **

While happiness doesn’t come on a plate, dim sum does

Dim Sum means “ dotted heart " or “ pointing to your heart " in chinese. But lately people prefer to call it Tim Sum meaning “ touched the heart ” Dim Sum is labelled as ''bad for the heart'' due to ''hidden fat'', but we Chinese still enjoy it. Eat first as the saying goes and deal with it later…. * wink* * wink* Well , it goes well with a cuppa of green tea though.

Dim sum conjures tiny morsels of Chinese tea snacks in bamboo baskets that are popularly eaten at breakfast or lunch. The most popular ones are Steamed Sui Mai, Steamed Har Gao ( prawns dumpling), Radish Cake, Chee Cheong Fun , Char Siew pau, Egg Tarts , Wu Kok or aka Taro Puff and not to forget the famous glutinous rice aka Lor Mai Kai. There are many types of dumplings which are so daintily made and attractive especially the cyrstal clear dough skin prawn dumplings. Nowadays, they have come out with lotz of different dainty looking dim sum snacks.

Piggies love to eat dim sum. Eating dim sum is heavenly . Making it is tedious , therefore I tell you do not grumble about the cost of dim sum …it is worth paying for. We indulge not often coz Daddy complains it is expensive …he rather eat something more filling even if it is expensive ..haha… ( but he doesn’t understand that it is pricey coz of the amount of work involved ) .

I hope to learn from my sifu " Hongkong Dim Sum" one day ....just the thought of it is enough to excite me and set my adrenalin working overtime (",) To think of it , Momsie is a glutton and hungers for skill in baking ,cooking and now thinking of making dim sum...keeke..eek. I always believe in one is never too old to learn anything , for acquisiton of knowledge is timeless and ageless.
