Dumplings From Friends & Home Made BBQ Pork

Dumplings Festival was celebrated yesterday (100th day MCO). No morning walk because it was drizzling when we woke up.
 Sunrise at 7:32 am
 A friend came over the previous day to give us 2 home made dumplings or bak chang. 
 I re-steamed the bak chang from my friend for breakfast. Hubby had the one with the black eyed beans and I had the one with mung beans. It had 1 salted egg yolk, 1 chestnust, 1 mushroom and 2 pieces of pork belly.
 A satisfying and filling breakfast.
 Later in the morning, a friend sent her husband to deliver 2 home made bak chang to us.
 Keeping these in the fridge for another day's breakfast or maybe lunch.

Bak chang or glutinous rice dumpling is a traditional Chinese food. It is made of glutinous rice stuffed with different fillings and wrapped in bamboo leaves and tied with reed. It is then cook in boiling water for 2 to 3 hours.

 Sambal petai or stinky beans left over from the previous day's dinner.
Simple home cooked dinner for 2 people
Steamed rice for hubby and oat porridge for me.

    1. Thank you, Mun. Yes, I have friends who make tasty bak chang. I have helped my mom and aunt made bak chang and I have also made bak chang on my own but that was a long time ago. Maybe I will make again one of these days. Still contemplating.
