Jin Yinji made her signature Lunar New Year dumplings

The veteran actress shared that she always puts some new coins into her dumplings and whoever is lucky enough to bite into one with a coin would win a big prize from her.

Jin-jie, who brought her dumpling-making tradition over from Korea 50 years ago, even quipped that everyone who eats her dumplings will always be extra careful 'cos they're worried about breaking their teeth if they bite down too hard.
