Dim Sum - Longevity Bun and Shumai by SmallCreationsByMel Dim Sum - Longevity Bun and Shumai by SmallCreationsByMel
Here's a close up of my shumai and next to it is the longevity bun (translated from Chinese literally). The buns have red bean paste inside and is sweet. It is served often during birthdays (course you can eat it even if it is your "unbirthday".)

The shumai (the thing on the right), is salty and is made of pork, shrimp, and etc (they vary a tad sometimes, ie, some add mushrooms, or some (most of the time) have roe on top, etc). Might make a few more dim sums =]. So fun ^^ (Prolly gonna get some dim sum, the edible kind this weekend! ^q^).

materials: polymer clay, I bought the containers
size: smaller than a quarter...I believe it is 1:12 scale =]

hmm I'm not sure on the spelling haha. It's just when I googled it, everyone spelled it shu mai although I must say xiu mai sounds closer to it XD. Thank you for liking my work :heart:

I wish! My parents just got back from San Francisco and I was so sad I couldn't go. I'd be stuffing my face all throughout China town. XD

omg yeah!! and I know a few good restaurants there too! (I live less than 2 hours away from SF and I go quite often cause my mom's family lives there XD) If you ever come by SF or Sacramento (<-- where I live) you should let me know :D

You are so lucky! I am planning to move out to the west coast in the next few years, though I'll be around the Los Angeles area.

We're taking a trip with my parents out to San Francisco next fall. When we have a date set, I'll let you know! :D

Yeah, traffic is just awful. XD I'd rather deal with traffic than driving stick on the hills in San Fran. I couldn't imagine how people even manage it there. >.< lol

Oh god yes. I am craving In-N-Out so bad now. lol And decent Mexican food. And Marie Callenders.
