i would love to share with minna-san..

something about Rice Dumpling Festival:
Qu Yuan was an important minister back in Chu Kingdom in ancient China. He had been known for his loyalty for the emperor of Chu, and loved his country greatly. However, His Majesty had not taken Qu Yuan's advice seriously, and he eventually got himself trapped and captured in a foreign land by his enemies, which then lead to his own death.
Sad and angry at the corrupted, dying Kingdom, Qu Yuan tied himself to a big rock and threw himself into the River of Puo Luo. The people then made rice dumplings wrapped in bamboo leaves and threw them into the river. They believed this would stop the fish from eating Qu Yuan's body. Some would even row down stream in a boat, beating drums and shouting out loud in the hope to scare the fish away (it was believed that it is how the Dragon Boat event is related to the festival.
Since then, the 5th day of the 5th month in the Chinese calendar has been set as Duan Wu Festival to remember the incident.
during this festival..
Chinese will be eating this glutinous rice wrapped in bamboo leaves, called Zong Zi..
it contains all sorts of different fillings in the rice: pork, roast pork, chestnut, egg, salted egg, mushroom, red bean, or just simply without filling.
normally, i can eat 2 Zong Zi consecutively..
and the ones i normally consume are the plain ones..
whereby i will dip it in sugar and eat..
yum yum~ sweet and sticky~
i'm so sorry if either of you are hungry now
