A little while ago a friend messaged me on facebook and said that she was going to give me some cakes to try for her home-based (for now) bakery and catering company. That’s when my memory brought me back to that one time when there was a party at her house and how awesome her mom’s baking skills was. If she’s got half her mom’s talent, the product will surely be a hit.
Well, she’s obviously got more than that.
Ching Yi, the mastermind behind A Moveable Feast KL
As it turns out, Ching Yi’s home-based bakery/catering company is no ordinary company. It is a sort of social project and a platform for women with no skills, education or in tough financial situations to gain job opportunities and stable income.
A more than noble cause, and something that I really support. The service can be found here:

assorted cakes and curds, all yummy
The samples that I got to try were the following:
- Chocolate cake with peanut butter cream cheese frosting
- Vanilla cake with raspberry compote filling and raspberry cream frosting
- Banana cake with caramelized banana filling and caramel cream frosting
- Lemon poppyseed cake with cream cheese frosting.
- Passion fruit curd
- Chocolate with citron curd.
All cakes and tarts are made home-made from fresh ingredients without colouring or preservatives. All natural fruit purée to make the curds, compote and frostings.
Jon, Joyce, and Fresh all gave thumbs up to the cakes and curds
I tried a few of the cakes and the passion fruit curd, they were delicious! To get some unbiased point of view I got Jon, Fresh, and Joyce to give these stuff a try too, they liked it!
So if you’re going to get some cakes or awesome tarts, try to contact A Moveable Feast KL. You’ll get awesome product, and be doing a good cause at the same time. Two birds, one stone, etc. Why not?

Since it looked so beautiful from the outside, we just had to make a trip during lunch on a work week to see what this place is about.
The interior consists of area, an expansive ground floor offering coffee, cakes, and assortment of bread and pastry, with about half of the area spanning over two floors in terms of ceiling height.
bread, coffee, cakes, sandwiches, soup & salad
Upstairs, there are more seating areas and another bar in which you can order sandwiches, all-day breakfast, tartine, as well as soup and salad.
The product selection is immense, with the smell of freshly baked bread and coffee in the air, the ambiance is perfect.
lunch for three, covering most of the product type at Tous les Jours
We had Korean wheat and sweet potato cream bread, blueberry pastry, a cup of caramel latte, some cakes, macaroons, as well as a breakfast set and caramel latte.
Over all the quality of pastry and bread were very satisfying, and perfect for any carboholics. I was a bit impartial to the way the presentation of caramel latte, but the coffee did not disappoint.

Expect to spend about RM 20+ per person for enough food to fill the stomach, and for the quality and concept, I’d say this place is definitely worth visiting.
