Day 3 of Kuching - Factory Visits



Factory No. 1 - Pepper & Bird nest

and bought 2 boxes of bird nest, 



one for 蔡妈妈 and one for 洪妈妈....$640rm.... heart pain seh.... such a big hole in my pocket.... =S



Factory No. 2 - Pottery

for $5rm each, the kids got to create a ceramic piece each to bring home... =) 



Factory No. 3 - Kueh Lapis 


kids get to help spread a layer for the kueh  

plenty of unique favours such as cheese, chocolate chips, peppermint, orea etc.... but i still prefer the original one.... bought 2 back as well  


back to Barok for dinner .... building does not look as creepy in the light.... 

bamboo chicken with tapioca leaves soup 




Our tour guide, Mr Ryan, is a very entertaining guy... he would entertain us with games and hands-on activities during all the long journeys 

He taught us how to fold a napkin into a candle 


and taught us how to make a bracelet with the stem of the tapioca leaf 

my 50% completed bracelet

Hi there, a group of us would like to go to Kuching for educational tour and visit. I'm interested in the pepper and bird nest industries. Do you still remember the contacts or name of the factories? Thank you! :)

Hi there,
i dont have the details about them as it was all planned by the tour guide. Probably you can ask your guide. I am sure they will be able to find one and fit it into your route for you. =)
