Char Siew Por Lor Pau/Tangzhong Bun(菠萝包)

I'm making Char Siew Por Lor Pau!!! I found this recipe for the Por Lor Pau from Florence's blog- DO WHAT I LIKE. I added in my own recipe for the Char Siew filling within the Por Lor Pau. Por Lor Pau can be found either plain or with Char Siew filling. It is also a famous breakfast snack in Hong Kong. We can find it easily in the many Hong Kong cafes (Char Chan Teng) in Singapore. I let my neighbour try this Por Lor Pau and they said that it tasted like the ones in Hong Kong!!! I really got to thank Florence!
