My mom's visiting us right now and we have been keeping busy. We've done A LOT of shopping, played a bunch of hands of Shanghai Rummy (sadly I've not won yet), eaten way too much food (thanks to my mom for some delicious home cooking), and have just enjoyed each others company.
Yesterday we had the day off and enjoyed some Dim Sum. I love going out and eating Dim Sum and will definitely miss this when we leave Hong Kong. Luckily we still have 9 weeks left here (not that I'm counting down or anything), and hopefully will have more chances to enjoy Dim Sum.
For those of you who don't know, Dim Sum is a style of Chinese cuisine. It involves eating a variety of different types of dumplings, steamed foods, and even some deep fried goodness. The portions are small and are usually served in steamer baskets. There are all kinds of options for everyone to enjoy!
Dim Sum at City Hall in Central. I love being served via the carts!
