  1. Hihi! I chance upon your blog and found some great recipes! Can I know where is a good place I can buy the beancurd skin? Thanks!

  2. Dear Anonymous,

    Thanks for visiting :) I bought the beancurd skin from NTUC Fairprice supermarkets. You need to make sure that it's the type for dessert, not for ngor hiang or frying.
