Dim Sum Lunch

Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! Where does the time fly? This is life with a baby I guess. Blogging on the computer and downloading photos from my digital camera is too tedious which is why I never get around to it these days. I think I’ll try blogging from my iPad using photos taken on my iPad and see if that works. That means seriously sacrificing photo quality, but you gotta compromise somewhere.

Baby is already 5 months old and growing up too fast. Her recent accomplishment is finally being able to grab her own foot and shove it in her mouth. Yum yum. She’s getting ready to crawl and will start eating solids soon. She is so spunky and makes me laugh every day, but I already miss when she was a helpless little newborn too…

Some friends came over during the long weekend to visit us, and they brought a wonderful array of dim sum for lunch. From Happy Day Chinese restaurant in Kaimuki: char siu bao, taro cake, siu mai (pork hash), scallop dumpling, har gao (shrimp dumpling), half moon. Delicious!

For dessert we had egg tart, Jin dui, and I made my favorite, almond tofu.

To my delight, they also gifted us these beautiful ume branches. Our house now feels like early springtime in Japan! What a blissful Sunday afternoon…
