We had such a fun time in Malaysia (27 to 28 Sept)! There was full attendance! It was subsidized through the fund raising efforts of our FST staff (not NUS)! (*touched*)
In all the factories, we had to wear a hair net, labcoats and shoe covers! We looked weird!
We stopped over in Johor Bahru to visit Kerry Ingredients.
We bought lunch at Yong Peng and ate on the way to our next destination, Malaysia Palm Oil Board (in Selangor).
After that, we headed for The Federal where we checked in. In the evening, we went for shopping in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
We had a good breakfast at the hotel in the morning! It was a standard breakfast buffet.
After breakfast, we headed to Cerebos Malaysia Sdn Bhd. They manufacture Brand's Essence of Chicken! We got a look at how they packaged the item. It was really interesting! They could fold a box from a flat cardboard in a fraction of a second! We were given refreshments (Bee Hoon, Curry Chicken, Curry Puff, Vegetable & Orange Cordial).
We headed for lunch at a seafood restaurant. There was so much food that we could not finish it! We were face to face with a spider crab. It was like half a metre wide! HUGE.
In the afternoon, we visited Malaysia Milk Sdn Bhd. They specialize in cultured milk, that is, VITAGEN!!! They make other products like Peel Fresh and Marigold products.
In the evening, we had dinner at another seafood restaurant (Yong Peng). The food was great but the air conditioning was extremely cold. After that, we had a long journey back to Singapore. On the way back, some of us were sabotaged and had to sing a song!
Just to mention, along the highway, we saw cows and horses! They were only separated from us by a single fence and were roaming by themselves. Some of our batchmates saw a truckload of camels too!
