I used to hang around in my dad's car workshop when I was a little girl. What to do? People play with Barbie dolls at home , I play with grease and plastic covers for the car inthe workshop. I make clothes using the plastic covers. :P
Anyway, there's this canteen next to the workshop. And every canteen of course there's an uncle canteen la.
Here's the juicy part of the story.
Once fine day, as I was playing with I don't know screwdriver or player outside my dad's workshop, the pau uncle delivered some fresh paus to Uncle canteen. And after uncle canteen paid pau delivery uncle, he used his hands to hold the pau and slowly place them into the pau steamer.
and suddenly ....
He covered his face with his hands. And I saw uncle canteen FLUNG his hands apart and ..... yes, the mucus flew as well.
And he wiped his hands on his T-shirt and continued to arrange the pau nicely in the steamer.
I totaly stopped taking pau from that day onwards. Not only in Uncle Canteen's place but in other place as well. I only started to take pau few years back ( I think i have no choice that's why) but I make sure that I removed the skin of the pau before I eat it. Do you?
