Hummmm, no Chinese in Hong Kong. They also make these, and so do the Thais. Sometimes they use cuttlefish.

here is one using the cuttlefish balls on my site. http://www.bellaonline.com/ArticlesP/art45325.asp Sometimes they make these from lobster-but usually is is just lobster flavoured, but good anyway. I have seen them fried, boiled, and as in this video. All very good!

It's like the little Beggar's Purses they use in Country Style japanese dish with various fish cake, eggs, daikon (can't recall them name) this beggar's Purse is also made in China and Thailand always filled with something tasty like crab. It is usually tied with soaked dried guard, but also long blanched scallions. Many commonalities around the world. Oh and the French make a crepe like Beggar's Purses. We all have more commonalities than differences in our cultures and cuisines!
