    Hi Ivy! You’d mentioned in your latest Star2 Column the microplane grater. I’d like to know where’d you found it as I’d been looking for one for the longest time! Please let me know the address of the store (if it is in Malaysia). I’m not familiar with the kitchen supply stores around and had thought them non-existent in Klang Valley. Thanks!
