Durian Pancake @ Lai Po Heen, Mandarin Oriental

I remembered posting up about their dim sum just recently, one of my deepest regrets was that i didnt try their signature dessert, the durian pancake. I remembered that i was not spared in my comment box when my readers asked how was the durian pancake. So in order not to disappoint myself further, my eyes almost popped out when my dad said we should give mandarin oriental another visit as my brother has not had dim sum since he went down under in Australia since January. What a delight!

Harlo? What you starring at? I reckon this has got to be a perfect timing photo..Caught ya!

I will spare you with the rest of the dim sum pictures since everyone has an idea how they looked like from a few weeks ago. Just the dessert..promise..

Presenting the durian pancake! At almost RM 5++ (USD 1.30) a piece, this is not cheap bear in mind you get 5 star service and obviously the food as well..served in a chilled plate..you just want to look and smell the aroma that it churns from its simple and innocent look..

Each bite of chilled durian flesh with light cream is served with a thin pancake..which does its job in holding it well..It was definitely an eye opener and wouldnt lose out if it were to fight the Chocolate Durian or the Durian Cheesecake..

Its Monday Folks, and i hope you guys have a lovely day ahead for another long winding week..

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
