Happy DUmpling Day!!

Oh, today is the day when Chinese celebrate by eating dumplings, yup bak chang...5th day of the 5th lunar month.

Why they eat the bak chang? The story was there was this fella Qu Yuan (can't remember whether he's warrior or poet or both)...he commited suicide by jumping into the river after the King refused to listen to his advise which led to a war. So his friends and supporters threw in dumplings into the river to prevent fishes (or any other sea creature - yg ni I add punya la) from eating him....so this was in honour of his sacrifice la.

hmmm my search for chick-chang is still not fruitful....:(
