Come Dumpling Festival, I would always look forward to some home-made dumplings! My grandma would make delicious dumplings for the whole families to eat. One year, all my aunties and uncles got together to learn how to make dumplings at my grandma’s house. It was harder than I thought; you have to fold the leaves in a certain way so that they remain locked in that position and you boil them, there are a million and one steps involved, from preparing the rice, to boiling the dumplings.

It is also the festival where people dagonboat to commemorate a patriotic guy called QuYuan, while that story has lost its relevance already, dragonboating has not. I tried it once and it involves mainly teamwork and is challenging. To put it in simpler terms: you don’t want to be the weak link that causes the boat to go slow!

In retrospect, this is an exciting festival, if only because of its’ fattening yet awesome dumplings.
