It was a tag-team effort: I cooked the rice and prepared the ingredients; he wrapped up the dumplings and secured them with strings. Nevertheless, the collaborative effort took an entire day before we could wrap it up.
Having had zero experience at making this traditional dish, I approached the task with trepidation, until my significant other told me he knew exactly how to wrap the dumplings. I was equally impressed by his ability to manipulate the strings with perfectly nimble fingers and secure them around the bundles. ‘It must be in the middle of all the 3 corners’, he said. It took me a long while to locate that ‘middle’ point.
I finally know what hidden talent this guy has.
