Exploring the Miracles of Neiwan

Dumpling festival & Er jie’s wild ginger flower dumplings

leave a comment »

Dumpling festival is just around the corner! Er jie is busy making dumplings and even granny is joining in the fun. I can see Er Jie is applying what she has learnt at marketing lesson – to not only sell your final product but to show the process of making it. This way customers know what they are getting, and in this instance, its freshly made and wrapped wild ginger dumplings!!

I get the feeling that customers are stopping by her stall because Er Jie, granny and friends are gathered around the huge bowl of ingredients, laughing and making dumplings together. The warmth, sincerity and good fun they exude is attractive and gives the impression that Er Jie’s dumplings are made with extra love. Would you buy dumplings from Er jie or from a random stall with few miserly dumplings hanging out in the cold?


This picture is taken during ginger flower festival. Er Jie made the largest ever dumpling in Neiwan to celebrate this special occasion. This dumpling was then cut and given out to vistors of her stall. How amazingly passionate she is about dumplings!!
