    Anyone celebrate it?

    I already have eaten many of these dumplings. Officially in Cantonese as salty meat glutinous rice dumplings. Something like that literally. ;D

    If I remember correctly some experts say it's roughly 1500 cal per piece! Each time I eat at least 2 of these dumplings. :P

    Wow. You are very brave indeed to gobble at least 2 of these.
    Maybe you have alot of spare capacity.

    No sadly I didn't celebrate.
    Nobody in my family believes in these things anymore
    even though they are Chinese.

    In Singapore, Ramadan just started a few days ago at new moon.

    What I did feel was a subtle change in energy. At new moon. Not today.
    I understand the significance of Dumpling Festival,
    but somehow I just didn't feel anything today.

    However, at new moon,
    I had a dream concerning an accurate prediction.
    I thought the dream was wrong but it ended up correct.
    Haven't checked my ZWDS monthly chart,
    so still not sure if this month will be a good month for me.
    Ah well.  :)

    in my family, today is a big day almost like new year. Praying to Kuan Yin, ancestor, and other deities in the house. We made these dumplings too.

    We had re-union dinner with the rest of extended families.

    Tradition or not, this festival is deemed an opportunity for eating big at home. ;D

     ;D couldn't resist the temptation.

    2 for breakfast, 2 for dinner. Still ok since only 2-3 days each year.

    haha... Duanwu festival means time to eat delicious homemade rice dumplings + re-union dinner for me.

    Just like national (independence) day means public holiday. I don't think many will really sit down and think we achieve independence and watch some historical documentaries. ;D

    I feel happy celebrating and giving dumplings to my friends and family too but I ate one only because glutinuous rice gives me indigestion.

    This year my family made 80+ dumplings. We exchanged dumplings with friends and colleagues as well.

    Some put in whole red bean and tastes great.

    my homemade salty meat dumpling.



    The price for these dumplings are appreciated very much. My friend told me he paid MYR 8 for each meat dumpling.
