One fine day, mum, sister and I walked - correction, they walked, I waddled - over to Teck Kee Wanton Mee Coffeeshop (Blk 1 Tanjong Pagar Plaza #02-04/05) for dumpling noodles ( (shui jiao) main). I was slightly less than enthusiastic when my younger sister suggested doing so as my back was killing me and I have never found a need to venture out for dumplings as my mum's dumplings are mighty fine to boot.
However, even I had to swallow my pride and admit these dumplings were gooood. Generously stuffed with minced pork and shrimp, crunchy thanks to the presence of black fungus and water chestnut, blessed with the fragrance of sesame oil. Now, all I need to do is pimp my bump and convince my mum she can pull off something just as delicious.
On another note:
I used to think I have about 6-8 regular readers and that includes my mum and 2 sisters. However, a quick glance at the number page views I get reveal otherwise.
WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE AND WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?!
Kidding. I have nothing to offer you unless you want those leftover meatballs I have in the fridge (but even those would be gone by the weekend).
That said, I truly am curious about my readers, yes you. Based on the comments and emails I get, I feel I have a lot of young female readers. That's fine, I know I have never been the guy-type of girl.
But tell me:
1. Are you a regular reader or did you click on the 'Some Like it Haute' link from another blog or did you just chance upon my blog while googling "How to overcome Middle Child Syndrome"?
2. Are you female, male and do you have kids, pets and/ or plants?
3. How old are you and what are you doing now? Well, not right now as I know you are reading my blog but what do you do on a day-to-day basis?
Do leave a comment and say "hello" or email me if you are shy. Even if you don't leave a comment, I know you are out there ... lurking, observing from somewhere ... like Batman.
