100 Dumplings Challenge (Part 1)

So guys, we did a thing….

Just a disclaimer – no we areΒ not planning on moving to Booktube – YT was just an easy (and free!) way to post this πŸ™‚


Thank you for 100 followers!! We’ve both joked about doing the 100 dumpling challenge for aaaages, and then as we got closer to 100 followers, we figured we would have to celebrate by doing it.

We want to thank each and every one of you for following us. Thank you for your support, your comments and your love (and most of all, thanks for sticking with us even when we randomly go MIA for a few months πŸ˜…). We run this blog for fun, and do whatever crazy thing comes to mind (in case that wasn’t clear already) so imagine our surprise when people actually responded to our content?! Wild. We were ecstatic when we hit 1 follower, let alone 100 – just knowing that you guys are reading what we have to say, and actually enjoy it, is an incredible feeling.


Even more important than this teeny weeny milestone is that we’ve met so many amazing people through this blog and made some wonderful friendships that we will cherish forever. It’s been so much fun bonding with you guys over our mutual love/hate of certain books/characters, swooning over fictional boys together, and getting hyped about new releases 😍.

We love you all!

(P.S. Stay tuned for Part 2 – it isΒ epic)

    1. Ahhhh thank you so much lovely!! Omg you have no idea – when we were re-watching this footage, we kind of wanted to vomit a little, ngl πŸ˜‚ Can honestly say we won’t be eating dumplings again for awhile! πŸ˜…

      And thank you for being so kind as always 😭❀️

  1. β€œNarrator: they were not fine” DEAD.

    β€œThe golden trinity. Wait. It’s the holy trinity.” DECEASED.

    Honestly, you guys are ICONS and I would give my left arm for this to be like a regular thing. Also, totally random but interesting fact: we have the EXACT same fridge! LOL! You know what they say about great minds and all that!

    And your holidays sound like the actual definition of EPIC. Basically, I would like to take this opportunity to volunteer to be your official third wheel if you girls visit Melbourne. Reasons why this would work include: I will support any big spending or unnecessary splurging. I too enjoy wine, cheese and chocolate. I will literally talk your ears off with my late night ramblings. Just kidding but not really.

    AND CONGRATULATIONS ON REACHING 100 FOLLOWERS – WHOO HOO *Throws confetti* πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ I’m so proud of you girls! Also, the first 100 is the HARDEST. It’s all smooth sailings from here on out!

    Love always, your Saltmate ❀

    1. HAHAHAH I’m so glad we made you laugh πŸ˜‚ I was wondering whether anyone would find this funny except Nish and I πŸ˜‚

      OHMYGOD YES THIS JUST CONFIRMS IT, WE ARE SALTMATES ONLINE & IRL TOO!! 😍Hahaha ohhhh we still have Part 2 coming out & once this whole mess resolves, we’re hoping to do another food challenge so WATCH THIS SPACE πŸ˜‰

      OHMYGOD I WOULD LOVE THAT!!! I’m thinking of flying to Melbs again to rewatch the Cursed Child – hopefully some time in the next year, so I’ll defs take you up on that offer πŸ˜‰β€οΈ

      Thank you so much!!! Honestly I know it’s not really a huge deal, esp when most of our friends have like 100’s and 1000’s, but we’re just so happy to have made so many beautiful friends (LIKE YOU!!!!! ❀️❀️❀️❀️)

        If you do come to see the Cursed Child [which I haven’t seen btw] I will 100% be your tour guide. And, as a Harry Potter fan – I’m going to need your opinion on the Cursed Child. I never really got on board with the whole children thing. I was here for Snape and the golden trio!

        And i resent that – IT’S A HUGE DEAL! I am so proud of you guys!

        At the end of the day, I don’t look at the numbers – I measure my success in the lovely friends I make and the comments I receive. (most of which are from you and Nish lol) ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

        Thanks for being the best saltmates out there x

      2. Hahaha so the funny thing is, I edited the entire video in one go, but we decided to split it into 2 parts just so we didn’t bore people..so the sequel is ready, I just need to make in intro for it & have been too lazy to do so πŸ˜›

        Nish & I THOROUGHLY enjoyed the play – the entire experience was truly magical! Even if you didn’t like the screenplay, I would 100000% recommend!

        ABSOLUTELY I AGREE! It’s actually been a dream to meet so many lovely people on this platform (like YOU!!!!) & we’re incredibly thankful for it everyday 😭❀️

        Also I forgot that you were from Melbourne too, definitely down to drink wine and eat cheese. But the million dollar question: what is your favorite cheese? My chef of a step-dad got me hooked (tragically for my bank account) onto Fromager d’Affinois and I can never go back. Sweet dreams are made of brie! ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀


  2. ahhh… I absolutely loved watching your video (and I can’t wait for part 2) !! You were doing so well with eating the dumplings, I’m interested to see how you do next!! I love your friendship as well #goals!!
    I loved all your mention of Taylor Swift, she connects us all!! And yes Brooklyn 99 is literally my favourite, sooooo good!! And Charles is a mood!! Also Chris Evans and Tom Holland, yesssss!!
    Finally huge congrats on 100 followers!! That is awesome and you deserve it so much and more!! ❀
