Dim Sum Saturday

Another favorite past time is going to Dim Sum with my work family. These are the people I work with and we are very close. Chongmas my best friend, her husband Vincent and thier baby Kaila! Look at how big she has gotten. Celene is my manager and her daughter Bree. Roi our Team leader, Andy his wife and baby and Theresa my holistic tree hugger earth friend.

Dim Sum is like a chinese brunch of many many good appetizer type foods. We just spun that lazy susan around and enjoyed. Our last excursion was to Swing Tai, that was fantastic too. Of course we are missing more of our work team. More food for us...............

What is Dim Sum?
What is it, exactly? Let's start with what it is not. If you're the type that enjoys browsing through a menu, then a dim sum restaurant is not for you. There's no ordering; instead you choose from a wide assortment of snacks that the waiters bring out on carts and trays. Also, if you're looking to have a romantic lunch, then a dim sum restaurant probably isn't a good choice. First off, the atmosphere is hardly conducive to romance, what with the clattering of trays, people calling out their orders, and large groups of people talking at each table. Besides, the best way to enjoy dim sum is with a large group; otherwise you'll fill up on a few items and miss the opportunity to sample everything.
