These are some Chinese refreshments, we call it Dim Sum too, showing in this photo are rice noodle roll, pastry and Bao (包). At old time, we having dim sum as breakfast and eat some pastry at tea time, but in current days we can eat these foods at night too.
Dim Sum (点心) is a nice name, 点 mean touch and 心 mean heart, it mean touching your heart.

sorry that I have been busy and tired lately, so much that I missed TE.
Wow..this shot is lively and excellent especially when the Chinese New Year is so near.
Very tasty especially when I look at the dumplings.
Excellent view from the top to show all the menus.
The red table cloth make it so catchy and exciting.

I like your presentation of these dishes. The red background makes them really jump out, and everything looks so delicious. :-) It was also interesting to know the meaning of "dim sum". The workshop photos are very nice, too.

You really took all the trouble to explain to the TE members about Dim Sum and you did a great educational job. To get a decent Dim Sum in Alor Star is a bit difficult, but in Penang it is easy. Nice food shot with fine color hues and sharpness. Well done
Thanks for your critique of my food shot in Bangkok

yummy! It looks tasteful...very nice shot. I think this theme is not well explored in here. Very good catch, the flash was essential to bring the details and textures out. Well done!

I am very conservative about foods and meals. I should to know what are the ingredients before I try to eat some meal. these ones look fabulous and delicious. perfect the light, framing and sharpness to show these foods. I ate some chinese foods here in brazil, but I don't know their names in chinese language.

très belle publicité pour les mets de ta région, couleurs et aspect général bien rendu malgré un éclairage un peu plat et une diffusion de lumière due à une petite surexposition causée pour les assiettes claires , amitiés Henri

Hi Ally, Looks delicious, I like the way you have arranged them in a circular pattern & used the red tablecloth as the BG, very effective & really makes the dishes stand out, excellent sharpness, colour & clarity. At first I thought this was part of your New year celebrations but I see it was posted a week earlier, I hope I have the opportunity of tasting some of these fine food when I visit Kuching.
jemaflor (101355) 2010-03-10 10:57
Well taken and composed, perfect light and sharpness ... pity that we don't taste this chinese meal ... tfs.
