Cardboard Char Siew Bao, anyone?

Okay, this has nothing to do with Mr. Char Siew Bao featured in my blog. Today the star of the post is .....

Taadaa...Steaming hot BBQ bun!

Am sure that most of you heard bout the recent news on Cardboard BBQ buns sold in one Beijing's restaurant.

This shows how 'innovative' they are:
Soak the cardboards in some chemical solution.

Drain the cardboards and *chop* chop*chop*.

Cook with soy sauce.

Voila, there you go...steaming hot buns made of chopped cardboards.

Okay, I better stop now, feel like puking too.
