Char Siew Puff & BBQ Puff

Char Siew puff is a popular dim sum os chinese snack which you can buy in chinatown or restaurant. I make this puffs with my kids together during sunday morning and served it as tea brunch. It is very delicious and I score a lots of compliment from my neighbours, friend, family or even from school.
