Siomai Express

My sister and I decided to make our very own siomai just for fun and to satisfy our hunger for comfort food. I was assigned to make the mixture and she will help with the wrapping procedures. As you can see in our photo, we are making beef siomai at home with happy and contented faces. Haha! A great family bonding indeed.
