Happiness and the Har Gau

Happy is what I am, what we are. And everyone is remarking on how different I look since Steve arrived. I believe it's true, that my happiness bubbles up to the surface and reveals itself in my face. There's just no hiding pure joy.

We've been busy, soooooooooo busy. Getting out and about, visiting with friends, exploring old haunts and discovering some new ones. The week I took off was wonderful, just absolutely wonderful, and it was difficult going back to work. Luckily this week has been a short work-week (Wednesday was a holiday) and next week will be another short work-week with Tuesday off. We're just simply delighting in each other.

And now for the har gau. Classical steamed shrimp dumplings. My love's favourite dim sum dish and he can't get enough of these little parcels of goodness. In fact we're off for some more today at lunchtime with Anuja. I let him have his fill of har gaus while I consume entire platefuls of cuttlefish tentacles. For some strange reason, he's not tempted to partake of my favourite dish. I can't, for the life of me, understand why. Can you?

Well, well, well---so glad to hear of your happiness.

Not into the seafood thing. But get the concept.

Yay! I've been waiting for this update! So happy to read of your happiness. It made me kinda sigh dreamily.

And I share Steve's taste when it comes to food. Those dumplings are just YUMMY! Mmmmm... I'm thinking it's time to head out to Chinatown soon for some dim sum.

I think I can understand how he feels. Gag. Sorry.

Glad to hear you're enjoying your time.
