Dim Dim Sum

Posted on: August 13, 2010

Went to “pasar malam” (night market) last night and bought some huge looking siu mai! They cost RM 2 for 3 pieces and its really kind of dear since it was sold in the night market. But I could not resist as they look so delish in the hot steaming cart. So I bought 6 pieces and decided to keep them for my bento this morning. And so here they are!

I had three of them and added a yambean dumpling also purchased at from the night market. The yambean is really very tasty too and its served with fried garlic, spring onions and chilli sauce. One can only see the spring onion as the fragrant fried garlic is underneath! And I had a serving of zucchini, tomato and corn salad with balsamic vinegar (packed in the little piggy bottle) topped with a carrot flower. Here it is theย  coming together of east (Dim Sum) meets west (Balsamic Salad)!!! Ha ha! On the bottom layer is of course the fruits. Had kiwi cut into flower shape, watermelon and some grapes.

If you notice, my background of today’s bento and yesterday are slightly different from my earlier bentos. And I think the pictures look better now. Coz took some advice from my brother to use lighter or colourful background and also use natural lighting for the pictures. And voila! It does make the difference. Now I know how the other bento queens made their pictures look so real and so yummy-licious!! ๐Ÿ˜€
