It's birthday season here - three birthdays each exactly a week apart. Jesse's is the first. He wanted eight-jewel duck, chicken & silky beancurd in salted fish sauce and Yin's amazingly delicate dim sims. Not exactly a classically composed meal but we enjoyed it. Notice the blur of hands as everyone serves and eats and talks at high speed. And notice also the still point in the room - a dog who loves duck.
After the meal.
