Smorgasbord Short Stories Revisited – No. 39 by Marilyn Brouwer

No. 39 by Mal BrouwerSoo Ling had quite the tiniest, most delicate hands Harry Booth had ever seen. In fact Soo Ling at sixteen still had the form and figure and innocence of a pre-pubescent child. Normally Soo Ling did not leave the kitchen. She sat high up on an old wooden stool pinching and filling the tiny fragrant dim sums that her uncle’s Chinese restaurant had become famous for. The speed with which her child like fingers formed the perfectly shaped balls and fluted their edges was dazzling. Soo Ling could produce so many dim sums that her uncle had begun packaging them and supplying to other Chinese restaurants. But he never supplied them to restaurants in the same area. Chang knew he had something special with Soo Ling and competition was fierce, and getting fiercer on the Costa Del Mar for Chinese restaurants. What happened to Soo Ling’s dim sums in Madrid or Barcelona, Chang did not care but here in Callala, The Golden Dragon would be the only restaurant ever to serve Soo Ling’s exquisite dim sums.

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here. Find out more at
