From the previous post of our visit to Antong Coffee Mill in Taiping, we moved on to the show room and visitors' centre which is just a few steps away from the coffee mill.
This is the scene that greeted us once we stepped into the show room / visitors' centre. This same elderly uncle in person and in the poster gladly posed for me. The 2 glass containers hold the plain crackers/biscuits for us to dip into the free samples of different types of coffee. Servers with flasks of hot coffee pouring out coffee for visitors to sample. I was too busy testing out and enjoying the coffee and crackers and totally forgot to snap photos of the servers.
Ready packed coffee products and biscuits/crackers for sale here.
I didn't buy any coffee because I still have stock to last me a long time. But I bought 2 packets of biscuits that taste so much better than those sold in the stores. I only have long type left but the other type I have eaten all. These was my childhood's favourite and still is until today!

These were some of the compulsory items including the enamel potty for newly weds in the old days and some still follow this tradition in our present days.
Linking to Tuesday's Treasures.
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord,
continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him,
strengthened in the faith as you were taught,
and overflowing with thankfulness.
See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and
deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and
the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.
(Colossians 2:6-8, New International Version-NIV)
