dim sum & coming across a no-lady

One of my favourite things to do back home is to go out for dim sum with mama yue on early mornings. However, from time to time the waiter at the Cha Lou (how we call dim sum place in Cantonese) will make you share a table with some random strangers. Most of the time I have no problem with this kind of seating arrangement but this time, I was put into a nasty situation: a middle aged lady (okay she’s actually no lady…) who bitched me right in my face for taking pictures of the dim sum. I wonder what’s more annoying, her constant staring at my mum and I or her husband’s complaints about everything in his life? Anyway, the dish above is a bowl of sweet vinegar with ginger and pork leg. It’s known for its nutritional value and it’s also good for constant consumption for women who have just recently given birth.
