Sometimes I get really embarassed with my own kind. Even though they are of a different kind. Chinese people sometimes get themselves into the news for the wrong reasons and most of the time, it is due to selfishness and a typical couldn't care about others attitude.

Most of us know that it is the Rice Dumpling Festival (Zhongzi) today and many chinese around the world are making or eating rice dumplings wrapped in bamboo leaves. These dumplings are usually wrapped to resemble a pyramid and it usually contains meat wrapped within glutinous rice. Mum usually makes this but not this year as it is a really tiring exercise.

Anyway, back to the news. A company in Eastern China was caught repackaging 2-year old dumplings. The fillings were repackaged, so to say. How in anyone's mind could such a thought of repackaging 2-year old fillings for purposes of re-selling them for a profit? The authorities should have just gathered the dumplings and fed the owners or culprits dumplings for the next 1 year till the entire stock is exhausted. Let them have a taste of what it is like to have 2-year old dumplings!

And no, I verily believe that chinese people do not indulge in 2 year old dumplings. Century eggs perhaps. But not 2-year old dumplings.
