Each morning in ethnic Chinese enclaves in various parts of the world, including Philadelphia, Penang or Hong Kong, some people are sitting down to have a morning meal of dim sum -- that can be humble or extravagant, depending on such as the dining establishment they've opted for and their choices of dishes.
Hong Kong being the 24-hour city that it is, there also are dim sum establishments that are open 24 hours and others that, even if they do close for a few hours in the 24-hour cycle, do serve dim sum at dinner as well as breakfast and lunch. And it's true enough that I'm among the people who have happily eaten some dim sum dishes close to midnight and will fairly regularly do so for dinner -- with my neighborhood branch of Tim Ho Wan -- whose humbleness may be gleaned by meals there never having exceeded HK$60 (~US$7.74) per person -- having become a favorite eating place over the past year or so.
Of course it doesn't mean that I'm not partial to starting my morning with a dim sum breakfast. But there also are days when the only 'breakfast' I have is a humble cup of instant coffee. In addition, I've also been known to be happy with just one pineapple bun or egg tart to get me through the morning.
But while those options could fit Sandi's and Gattina's Photo Hunts themes for this week, I figure this more open take on the theme makes for more interesting photos! And for the record: yes, I would be happy indeed to begin my morning by chomping done on a humble dish of chicken feet -- that really are far more appetizing than they look! ;b
