It's have been a long time, since I wanted to learn how to do chinese dumpling ~ jiao zi or shui jiao. I had this book, about "How to make dumpling" for ages and never look at it. 
Until that day, once in a blue moon, I took this book out from the book shelf and tell the book ...."hehe is your turn.."
I flip the pages, turn to how to make dumpling skin...get ready all the ingredients and fillings. "I am doing it now ~~~" I though to myself..better be good...XD. My cell phone ring...guess who? My sister..SC, she came over after hang up. She was so excited because she wanted to do chinese dumpling too but never had the chances to lay her hand on it. 
TWo people never make chinese dumpling before, were so excited wanted to make chinese dumpling...hahaha...a bit crazy.. :p
