Something cute before i go back to food reviews

I must have done something right recently, like procrastinating to resume back to good ol food blogging.

Looking at the records, i haven't done a proper review for god knows when, but then again everyone goes through this kind of phases.

After weighing myself and finding myself with pants that don't fit me anymore, it can get quite hard to eat with enthusiasm but yet find yourself indulging so sinfully without a damn, after all how much would new pants cost?

Haha. In any case, i am heading towards the gym in the evening and promise that i will upload pictures onto Flickr at night (taking into consideration how fast Streamyx can be at certain days (worse then a girl's PMS fling)

To start off Monday, a nice little gift from my Ipoh relatives when they came down for the Raya break.

Edible Turtle Bun

The texture wasn't super smooth but had a nice chew to it when steamed. Cut a chunk of butter to let it melt in the middle, a brilliant start for Breakfast.

Apparently not available all the time? Well i will never know.
