30ml warm water, green color.
 Mix all (A) ingredients, except shortening. Slowly add in 230 - 250ml warm water n mix into soft dough. Add in the shortening n knead for about 10mins until soft.

Mix (B). Same as (A). This is for the leaf. Optional.
I use cookies cutter to cut out the leaf n use knife to mark the line.

 Place dough in bowl n cover wif wet towel , rest for 10mins.
 Remove n divide dough to small ball (@30g).
Wrap in filling u like. (I use louts paste, coconut, n chocolate)

 Brush some water on the back of leaf n stick onto the bun. Rest for 20mins.
 Remove from heat. N use the back of the knife to draw the line on the steamed bun.
 Use a tooth brush to color the bun.
This is the complete finished longevity bun.
