I don’t have any life-story to share with you today; only the story of the ridiculous bouts of indecision I’ve been going through when it came to sharing this Matcha-Milk Tangzhong Bread post.

The surprising charms of Asian Red Bean Bread

Red Bean Tangzhong Bread 1 - The surprising charms of Asian Red Bean Bread

When it comes to beans, I’m not really particular. I neither actively seek them out nor do I remove them piece by piece from my chilli. They’re just one of those things I don’t mind, you know?

We’re taking a little break from the Japan travel blogs because I haven’t had the time to make the next posts in the series yet. But what else should I write about except this Japanese-inspired bread? This has been on my drafts folder for such a looooong long time. So long I don’t even want …
