Chen Shucheng calls himself an old youtiao, whereas Xiang Yun wants to be an egg tart, because she likes everything to be warm and sweet. Of course we would be talking dim sum here at the Heart To Heart press conference as the drama literally revolves around an old Chinese teahouse, which yes, serves those delectable treats. It also helps that the stars — Elvin Ng, Joanne Peh, Zhang Yaodong, Chen Xiuhuan, Denise Camillia Tan, Cynthia Koh, Richard Low and Rayson Tan — are in a raucous mood today, so much so that it kinda feels like we're at a dim sum restaurant on Sunday.
Surely our stars must be experts at naming different types of dim sum by now. After all, some of the cast, like Joanne, Rayson and Shucheng, have gone for dim sum-making lessons to prepare for their roles. So it should be chicken... feet? Which is why we decided to throw in a 20-second time limit. In the end, some aced it, while others seem to forget the existence of dim sum and then some.
Heart to Heart debuts on Mon, Dec 24, 9pm on Ch 8.
