Steamed bread at Tin Loong Suan, is this Hulu Bernam or Tanjung Malim?

The famed steam bread at Kalumpang near Tanjung Malim has been beaten by .... Kedai Kopi dan Arak Tin Loong Suan, at Hulu Bernam! Soft, fluffy, warm, with a generously large fresh-from-fridge-cold piece of butter :-) Enjoyed with a cuppa strong coffee, marvellous!



So, is this Hulu Bernam or TM? Selangor or Perak?
The answer ... is of course on Wikipedia's entry abt Tg Malim :-)
Around 1766, Perak Sultan Mahmud Shah crowned the Bugis prince Lumu as Sultan Salahuddin Shah to establish the Selangor Sultanate. Sungai Bernam is agreed as the natural border and this tiny village happens to be divided by it. Today, the Selangor side is known as Ulu Bernam while the Perak side is Tanjong Malim.

i normally enjoy my bread toasted with butter/kaya.

but there was once at Chong Kok in Klang, when the bread came steamed instead, and surprisingly, VERY soft, fluffy and tasty.
