the bright side of jet lag: early morning dim sum, the breakfast of Champions.
getting in at 3
wide wide awake at 7
dim sum feast at 8
(The photo shows a bowl of wild fungus with bamboo pith and a plate of xia chang fen, steamed rice flour roll with shrimp, the handmade specialty at Federal Palace, the dim sum house next to my hotel in Hong Kong. Not bad for US$2.50. The two big floors of Federal Palace are packed with chatty women and dudes reading their morning papers by 8 am on weekdays.)
