you might be wondering: why is there a giant piece of bread made in the shape of a peach? we were at sam woo's in the giant chinese mall on the corner of valley and del mar in the san gabriel valley for a 70th b-day banquet for my uncle. i guess the chinese chefs were feeling especially festive - the dessert plate featured little bread buns filled with white lotus seed paste decorated like peaches and attractively arranged around (and under) a giant "peach" shell.

seeing that this bread shell was approximately the size of my nephew's head, i decided to see what he would do if we put it on him like a bike helmet. unfortunately, all the other little brats around us saw what we were doing and decided to copy us, so all-out mayhem soon broke out. but not until after i got these precious shots.

You forgot to mention that the steamed bun was blazing hot when you decided to put it on his head.
