Sheo ba zhang

It has been quite some years when I wasn't home during Duan Wu festival. This year I got lucky to able to feed my taste buds with the home-made dumpling (shea ba zhang in Ho Kien). It is definately one of my favorite food which I would only bother to have ones on this special occasion. My mom's dumplings are usually small in size, which she said it's good cuz the portion of filings are bigger compared to that of big dumplings.

I think this festival is gradually eroded by time. Apart from the dumplings, there's no other relevant festivities organized here. Sadly, even in the news, it is reported that the prices of raw materials needed to make dumplings are on the rise, and thus the dumplings are sold at higher price.
