Makansutra Malaysia 2013 - Outdated Entry :-(

After a recent trip to Kota Bharu, I was hankering for Kelantanese-style "khao jam" but wondering where to find one in Kuala Lumpur.
Anyhow, I bought a copy of Makansutra Malaysia 2013 from Books Kinokuniya last weekend, where it showed an eatery called Ulang Corner in Puchong serving "khao jam".
We drove *all* the way there, only to find that it's closed! Puzzled, I Googled and found out that it's been closed since May 2010 - nearly 3 years ago!!
All other food blogger reviews for Ulang Corner dated back to 2009 and earlier.
My question is: how frequent does Makansutra review and update its Malaysia guide?! Now, I'm not too sure how reliable are the entries in there, and how many are obsolete/outdated?
Now why would you trust Makansutra when you know you can't trust Michelin? ;)
That's one more strike against Makansutra, failing to keep its publications up-to-date. It's one thing when you arguably fail to promote / demote on time, another thing completely when you fail to report closures.
