For some people I kinda get the impression “Yum Cha” has become the modern version of going to church. Not so much for the religious aspect (obviously), but for the way in which people gather and socialise.
I got a text-message from Damien (TOD – The Other Damien, as he shall now been known as) to join him and a few friends for a catch-up this morning. Along with his wife, there were two or three people I’ve met previously, and some other people (work colleagues) I’ve never met before. It’s something he organises from time to time.
Fifty years ago, we would have been meeting at church. Now we’re meeting over pork buns and mango pudding.
And that was my day…
