22 Feb – You may be a famous singer and a great songwriter, but that doesn't automatically make you a good cook, as JJ Lin recently found out when he made dumplings with good friend Stefanie Sun.
The singer, who returned home to Singapore on Lunar New Year, recently posted a video of him trying to make his dumplings for the second time after failing his first try back in October 2019 that turned him into his father's butt of a joke.
However, as usual, it was not as easy as he thought despite not having his father breathing down his neck, as JJ failed several times at rolling his dumpling skin and filling it with meat - with one even looking like a curry puff than a Chinese dumpling.
At one point, Stefanie admitted that the whole thing seemed "very very disastrous", sparking laughter from everybody involved.
And just like a child, JJ couldn't help but feel proud of his creation after they finished frying them, and was happy when Stefanie said it was "juicy and crispy", despite the previous issues.
Netizens couldn't help but feel entertained by the effort, with one commenter joking, "A person who wouldn't be tired after a three-hour concert made three dumplings and said, "I'm so tired"."
"You two are very funny and I can see that you are having fun," said another. "It doesn't matter if the shape is not right, the important thing is that it was fun and yes, that way things taste better."
It is noted that JJ has decided to stay longer in Singapore this time to be with his family.
