Like the name says, either one has a father who is rich to start the franchise, or you need rich papa to be a franchise holder; either way, both sound plausible. However, you don't have to be very rich to eat here. The prices are almost comparable to those found on this campus suburb, where the price starts from RM5 onwards (Sarawakians find this prohibitive for street food). The whole area feels like it's on a second tin-rush, whereas the only commodity found is the students parents' cash; and they sure know how to wring them dry - from schools, books, food and accommodation.

Lucky for me, I don't to dough out for this lunch. My former house-mate, whose office is just around the corner, picks this place and the tab as well. He says the Ipoh Hor-Fun is good, so I order whatever he's having, and Seth has the curry mee (top), which he says is good. I guess his palate is conducive to whatever food there is. As for my rice noodle soup, when you take "Ipoh" out of the equation, what do you have? Ordinary Hor-Fun! Its soup is just plain old chicken soup; I'll take Singapore's High St. Tai Hwa Pork Noodle or even Kuching's Bishopsgate Min Joo any time.

* the logo of the place is eerily similar to that of Uncle Dom's, Sibu. I guess Uncle Dom had better sue for misplacement of copyright.

The thing I like about Paparrich is the air conditioning and the free wifi. And the durian ice cream. The food is better than average, nothing to shout about.

dunno 'bout the air-con. thing 'cos the whole place is wide-open on all sides. lots of students have breakfast there... probably to show they've got rich papas.

Feeling so hungry looking at the Ipoh Hor Fun. Another one more week will be our turn to explore KL/ Selangor food. Hooray!!

so balik kampung. have a nice time!


As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
