As long as I could remember, I would spend afternoons sitting inside Ming Court at a corner table that overlooked the goldfish pond. I would choose one of the white goldfishes, that glistened between the sun’s rays and pond’s ripple, and follow it until the very end of our meal. It became a family tradition to go before and after long trips, to celebrate a birthday, or to enjoy a break midweek. We would fill ourselves with piping hot dim sum, which has now turned into a comfort food of a sort. Something I would crave when I’m missing home and seeking comfort. And after a year without dim sum, when I was living in St. Andrews, I naturally felt inclined to learn.
To my surprise, it’s silly how simple they were and it was the perfect way to spend an afternoon folding these and sitting with my mother in the breakfast nook.
