Quite proud of this...

It's rare we get to produce our own stories (as in without tagging along with reporters), so hopefully we'll get to do more.

Just a little background on this: the story of Lan Fong Yuen, a little green dai pai dong on Gage Street is well known by now - the government will not extend the DPD licence to it when its original owner dies.
His son, Lam Chun-yip now runs the place, and although Lan Fong Yuen has two more interior 'cha chan tengs' behind the original DPD, it would be a loss for both the establishment as well as local heritage.
Oh, and it's famous for 'silk stocking' milk tea (or pantyhose for you yanks), also dubbed Hong Kong-style tea for its roots here.
Personally, having grown up with Tetley's tea bags, this kind of tea is a tad strong for me... plus I'm more of a coffee drinker.
