It's quite a daunting task - so many things needed to be prepped since there are so many goodies being stuffed into the little packages. Good thing Alan's taken care of marinating the pork belly and soaking the glutinous rice ahead of time. We set up a little production line at Alan's place and had loads of fun making these rice dumplings.
