Chili Anchovies Buns (Gelatinized Dough)

I am still in the midst of packing up my stuff for the big move, 80% of my stuff is in the boxes and my kitchen is close to "empty" :) Looking at the bare and neat kitchen, suddenly I have a taught of wanting my kitchen to be always in this kind of minimalist stage. Is like clearing all the clutter out of my soul and wanting to live a more healtier life by eating less sugar, salt, and excersice more. Haha... lossing 2 kg for me seems mission impossible (btw, I'm not really "fat" but wanting to reduce from 52kg to 50kg) just wonder how some can do it within a short period.
This bread was make months ago, I improvised my leftover pulut panggang filling by adding some anchovies to make chili anchovies bun filling. The bun tastes lovely with the grated coconut in it. Hope you don't mind seeing my old recipe again :)
