I am a copycat Rotimum bun. Other than my name, I do not look anything like my famous cousins in the store. You can call me a concept bun.
My creator did such a terrible job and now I have the most serious eczema on my head. But like what people say, don’t judge a bun by its cover or photo. I have a juicy coconut filling which my creator says is very good.
You can say I have a multi complex being a copycat and that. What do you say ? Am I a bun or a roti ?
