Foh San Dim Sum, Ipoh by Foh San Dim Sum, Ipoh

By now, this dim sum mammoth needs no introduction at all. Its name is pretty much synonymous and/or tied to Ipoh dim sum. While the some locals detest them, most tourists from other states will flock to this place for breakfast. And while there are other dim sum joints in the city, Foh San dominates the dim sum scene due to its sheer size and history.

I’ve visited them twice but I still can’t find what’s the big hoo haa about it. Sure, the portion is significant bigger so is the restaurant size. But some how, the taste does not strike the chord, mine at least.

On the recent visit, the prawn dumplings were off while the egg tarts… Let’s just say the ones at Nam Heong are way better than them. The Siew Mai was a-okay although it was slightly salty. The rest were just meh… The only commendable ones that worth going for were the BBQ pork bun and Chee Cheong Fun.

So… is it just one off or me… or have their quality deteriorated?

Graft Concepts Leverage for Apple iPhone 4/4S

Ever since I bought an iPhone 4S last year, I’ve been searching high and low for quality bumper that suits my preference. Some that I found were either too bulky or too thin while some were too cumbersome during installation / dismantling process. But all of that was history when I found this one – Graft Concepts Leverage – while I was at a shopping mall running some errands. Despite its hefty price tag, but not as crazy as this, the quality of the bumper is top notch!

The bumper is made of hard polycarbonate case with a latching mechanism to secure to the case firmly. There are two colours for this bumper; black colour (with matte finish) and white (with a smooth high gloss finish).

For obvious reason, I chose the black with matte finish (for both the bumper and the latch). What I like about this bumper is that there are no screws involved. It can be easily removed and installed with minimal effort. It looks great and wraps the phone tightly without effecting the phone’s network reception.

It has appropriate openings for all the ports, switches and earphone jack but I find a little bit difficult to press the volume buttons (especially the –ve one).

It comes with removable black plate which fits perfectly. The back plate is made from the same polycarbonate as the rest of the case and it fits under the main piece of the case comfortably. That said, I opted for Teksure Skin (Black Carbon Fibre) which I purchased from The Lucky Labs.
