Happy 端午节 (Duan Wu Festival)!

Today is Lunar Calendar 五月初五 - which is 端午节. So we are all gonna eat rice dumpling today to commemorate patriotic poet, Qu Yuan in the Chu Dynasty! :) I'm not going into the history and all but just that i am amazed at how after so many years later, we are still commemorating this day..i guess it is part of chinese history and culture. :)

There are so many different types of rice dumplings and every 'dialect' has their own version - so what's your favorite type?
