Ah, thanks! I keep coming across recipes with buttermilk but where I am, they don't sell it anywhere (as far as I know and I have searched almost everywhere). Bummer. So thanks again!

Oh, hi! It's been such a long time since that comment. Lol.

Actually, I've been using a buttermilk substitute: 1 cup of milk to 1 tbsp of vinegar and let rest for 20 mins or so.

It works for me! =)

hey! some NTUCs (cheaper) and most cold storage stock buttermilk $3+/600mL from Dairy Farmers. It's normally near the cheese section!
