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?

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.
Gone were the days when Malacca was perhaps the only place to have mille crepe. Now, there are couple of cafes that offer the almost similar legendary dessert in Klang Valley. And this is one of them which was opened not long ago. It is said that this particular one is by the person (and/or originator) who made the dessert famous in Malaysia.
For first timers, it is tough to locate this cafe due to its tiny occupied vicinity. But fret not as it is located right beside Subway restaurant. There are very few seats in the cafe and even fewer selections of desserts available than I first thought it would have.
You will be disappointed if you would to compare them with the selection you see from their website. The usual ones like Vanilla, Coffee and Chocolate are on the menu but let’s hope that they expand their menu in near future.
Since choices were limited, we opted for each of French Vanilla (RM9.90) and Coffee Bliss (RM9.90) flavour. Texture wise, we found that the crepes were a little thicker than the ones in Malacca. It was harder to cut through with given fork.
Maybe they had been sitting in the fridge for quite some time which made the crepe to harden a little bit, I don’t know. But in terms of flavour, it was still as good as it supposed to be. The taste of vanilla and coffee was subtle but yet able to impart their iconic essence.
All in all, they were good. Just that the thickness that got us wondering if this is normal. Nevertheless, one would not need to go that far off for a good slice of mille crepe anymore as there are plenty of choices in Kuala Lumpur now!
