Sleepy slow Saturday

Today was pretty quiet and slow, so I watched Ip Man and Ip Man 2. I’m reserving The Grandmaster for Sunday. A Wing Chun weekend!

Gosh I had such a hankering for dim sum and ban mian whilst watching Ip Man.

Shanghai Steamed Dumplings

Chee Cheong Fan filled with shrimp

Anyone who loves watching martial arts performances or any Bruce Lee movies will enjoy this show. Bruce Lee was a student of this martial arts form. Ip Man was set in China. Donnie Yen face was so composed when he fought his opponents. I liked this quote alot , “The virtue of martial arts is benevolence” – Ip Man .

Ip Man

Ip Man 2 was pretty exciting! It was set in Hong Kong after WWII. All the fight scenes, pretty amazing! There’s this scene where Ip Man meets all the martial arts masters and how he had to fight them to prove his worth so that he could open his martial art school. Amazing footwork, hand movements. So didn’t really eat much today except for a bag of Pepperidge’s Gingermen. Crispy, spicy and sweet!

Ip Man 2

You’ve got to watch the Ip Man movies in order to understand why he behaves a certain way towards oppressors. Pretty good movie to raise your adrenaline!

Oh I had the dim sum last month, at Enak Enak Hongkong Tea House. The buns were soft and the fillings was smooth and creamy, their steamed shanghai dumplings, or better known as xia long baos had a thin dumpling skin, and not much soup in each dumpling. I guess that makes sense if there’s too much soup it’ll just burst. Their Chee Cheong Fan was pretty smooth.

Enak Enak Hongkong Tea House is located at:
342 Bedok Rd

      Watch The Grandmaster! It’s like watching Wong Kar Wai’s “in the mood for love” with lots of fancy Kung Fu action!
