Bak Chang

I just noticed today is the Chinese Dumpling Festival (端午节) after one of my colleague mentioned about Bak Chang (Meat Dumpling). This is my 5th consecutive years I missed out the festival with my family.

This festival is not that popular now days, but to me is one of my favorite festival that brought me back lots of memories during my childhood time. I still remember last time when my grandmother still alive and healthy, our family is very particular with this festival.

Before the festival, we all will busy choosing glutinous rice to separate out with normal rice to make sure there were 100% glutinous rice only. Then my grandmother and my mother will busying prepared the recipes. My father, brothers and myself will busying looked for woods from everywhere and light up fire to cook the Bak Chang.

Last time we used to cook few types of Bak Chang during the festival, all my relatives will come and enjoy the Bak Chang together. Since my grandmother passed away, we don't really cook that much anymore because all my relatives celebrate it with their own family.

I love to eat Bak Chang very much, I think I haven't really eat it for years. Now I really got craving on Bak Chang, who willing to make some for me?

Note: All pictures were taken from my email.

Happy 端午节!!!
