Today's My Turn

longevity peach baos

Yeah... after boiboi's Birthday yesterday, today's mine.

Hubby bought boiboi and myself a bunch of these longevity peach baos (buns). These buns do not contain any peach actually. They are steamed bun shaped to look like a peach (a symbol of longevity) and filled with lotus seed paste. These buns are then sprayed/coloured with pink colourings. Check out what ST of Cheat Eat had mentioned a folklore about this. Traditionally these buns are eaten on elder folks birthday celebrations where I remembered they were piled high on a tray on my Grandma's birthday.

This is the cross section of the bun... not much lotus paste filling and the buns don't really tasted that great but well just a gesture for both of us to have a long life. My hubby darn old fashion one ok. Errr no romantic din din tonite since hubby has got some discussion on, neither there is any pressie. I know cos I've no idea why hubby has been super busy this week. Not that it matters anyway since I get to have surprises every now and then.
