Lily,

This looks really cute! Just bought my son a little piglet for Moon Festival. He loves it!

Will try to make this for him.

BTW, I am having trouble getting Lotus paste. Any suggestions?

Hi Lily,
Really love your blog, well done! But then what was the last sentence that you were about to write, looks like it's missing right?

Lily,

You know why your bunnies looks like Mice? As Bunnies have longer ears and rounded mouth.

You're horrible fantastic, bunnies, pig's head, you're very imaginative. After a trip baked like roasted pig, there you baked pig's head, Ha ! If you come back to Malaysia, I think you will bake some Orang Utang ! HA !

Happy cooking.
Best regards,
Rebecca
