So many things went wrong. I had intended to give Piggy wings but brushed the idea aside in the end because I was already having a hard time with Piggy's snout. It kept sliding off! At one point, I contemplated on using the stapler. In the end, I used Super Glue. (Kidding!)
Then I got distracted by mom making fishcakes and failed to watch the clock. As a result, Piggy got badly burnt in the oven.
Since last week's fish-shaped buns were filled with tuna, I felt that it be apt to fill Piggy with a pork filling. My initial thoughts were on Mushroom and Bacon, or Ham and Cheese. Serena suggested luncheon meat whilst Moon felt bakkwawould give Piggy that Singaporean edge.
During our morning stroll on Tuesday, Mom asked me, "What kind of bread will you be making next?"
"How about Char Siu (BBQ pork) Bun?" she continued. She even gone on to suggest, "I'll take care of the filling, you make the bread." That threw me off a a little because Mom and I seldom see eye to eye on culinary affairs. She cooks Chinese dishes, I bake Western-style cakes. She prefers them savoury, I like sweets. She doesn't interfere with my baking, I stubbornly stay out of her kitchen when she cooks. I guess you can say we're both pig-headed.
