Your helper can do the nitty gitty chores.

The last time u mentioned the Teo Chew mung bean dumplings. Can make this one? I dun think I hv seen this type .


It is call 双拼 I think. Gotta wrap the mung bean paste in some membrane so that the rice touching it will not end up uncooked. No idea where to get that membrane thingy. It is some part of a pig.

The version my granma makes, the meat filling is similar to hokkien version, salty but everything cut into small cubes instead of in big chunks. There is pork, chestnut, mushrooms, think there is also hae bi. Not sure.

Sweet and savoury.

I sent hubby a pic, his comment: looks like a lot of rice. He prefers his with more filling.

You did 2 rounds today, right? Some 6.7 miles in 20 odd minutes? You're very disciplined.
