Oh I dunno. Dumplings are very tasty, and provided you eat at least 20 of them, quite filling. Especially if they come in lots of different flavours. Yum. (Now I'm hungry...)
In some Asian cultures it is expected that you give a cash gift at a wedding. I've been to weddings where the only people who show up at the reception with a gift wrapped toaster are the Westerners who just couldn't get their heads around the fact that other cultures have traditions and etiquette different from theirs.
At my house we stick autoclave the cups in a pressure cooker every few months or so. Mainly just because we can.
