Labouring over dumplings 粽子的忙碌
It is rather difficult for me to write in English what have written in Chinese above ....but I will try my best...lah!
I am blessed with the good fortune ( 福 fook ) of food. I enjoy eating .... all kinds and all types of food.
My friend Chan Siew Fong (Mrs Lee) is also blessed with the same good fortune of food. God is gracious to bless her with many children and grandchildren too. Because of that God has given her extra blessing of Lok 碌 ( labouring, same sound as the Lok 禄 meaning prosperity). She has already attained the Lok of prosperity through the other Lok (labouring).
Another 10 days （6/6/2011）, Chinese worldwide will be celebrating Dumplings Festival, the festival of Zong Zi. Chan found herself getting busy "wrapping" many many dumplings for long list of recipients：mother, sister, daughters, relatives and friends .... me included. She also tailor-makes for each individual: this bundle no egg yolk, this bundle no dry oyster, this one all in....
I am blessed for having a friend who can "wrap" delicious dumplings. Blessed is Chan who is good in "wrapping" dumplings, she is well-loved by family and friends!
To labouring (hard working) Chan .... we all love you !!!
