I’ve never seen something so beautiful.
Round and pale, steaming hot.
Show me what you are, and I’ll show you what I’m not.
With so much inside, show me what you hide
To your laws I’ll abide.
And I’ll tear down my pride
Pretty, pretty girl
With round cheeks and fair skin
With so much you hold within
Siopao, I call you
I like how that sounds.
Steamed buns just like you,
Pretty and round
With hidden treasures at your core
Siopao, and so much more.
Description: Siopao is a widely popular snack here in the Philippines and is a sort of Philippine twist to baozi. It is a steamed bun with some sort of filling, usually pork.
