Today I went for dim sum with my family. I have a love-hate relationship with dim sum. On one hand I get to have fresh egg tarts and eat them with chopsticks. On the other hand, all the other dishes seem to have shrimp in it. Which can be a great thing except that I'm allergic to all seafood. Even the vegetarian dishes had shrimps today. I was hungry all afternoon.
Later on in the day, I went into the art store, Deserres, and picked up a book on Chinese painting techniques. A painting on one page really caught my eye, it was gorgeous, each brushstroke was deliberate and expressive. I couldn't take my eyes off of it!
It was a painting of shrimps.
So I guess I now have a complex relationship with shrimps too.
