Dim Sum and Shopping

Went to China Town for Dim Sum with this 'bunch' of friends yesterday.. lol.. All of us did not have Dim Sum for such long time already(though I just had it one month ago in London). Since when we arrive in Birmingham in September.

There were 12 of us and we split into 2 tables. I have no idea why they split to 8 and 4 instead of 6 and 6. Anyway, I was in the table of 8. The 8 of us are that kind that don't really care of the price of food when it comes to 'long lost' food, dim sum, for instance. There were 8 of us and we ordered like for 10 or 12. We were hungry but not that hungry till need to eat so much. It's just that we want to try every of them.

Ok, the food came. Egg tart, chee cheug fun, ha kau, siew mai and bla bla bla. There were some food that came to us but in fact we didn't order for those. We don't care!!! Just put it in the month, bite and swallow!!

We were waiting for some that we ordered but didn't come. 'Excuse me, we would like to check if the xxxx is ready?' one of us asked the waitress(of course not that polite la, food not coming). 'There, the one on the table is xxxx' replied the waitress.

'HAR!!!!' all of us shocked. We didn't know that's xxxx, it looked different from what I've had in London and Malaysia. We were like 'zha dou'.. Now only we realise that the dim sum in Birmingham China Town is different from other places. SPECIAL!!!

Later on went Bullring for shopping. I thought for buying myself a scarf. ' hmm.. I think I am getting one from M&S' I told myself. While walking around New Street, I saw a lot people carrying 'next' shopping bag. ''next' must be having sales or something'. I keep telling myself not to buy an expensive one. 'agak-agak' can use is good enough.

But, I end up with.. 



that costs me 13 Pounds. Damn..
