Food over the weekend

On Saturday, our friend visited us from London. As usual she brought some of her bread/buns for us to enjoy. For this occasion, they had planned to make pork bau as well. I managed to photograph the important steps in the process.

First the food our friend brought with her for us to eat. BTW, I enjoyed these three for my breakfast that day – yummy.

For lunch prior to us going out to visit Millet’s farm, I ate 3 of these pork bau – and they did taste nice. So much so that on my return from the trip out, I tucked into another bau.
