The secrets....

There was a legend that there is a tunnel in Malacca that brought St Francis to China. Many tried to enter the tunnel using various methods but somehow they never return. So the authorities sealed the tunnel. Havent try to search for it----some said it was near here. Look out for the crab with the cross on its shell too. "ASK ME"..:P if u want to know the history

Rubber

U can walk through nearby plantation at about 6am or earlier to see the tapping of latex. A tour in the latex processing factory is educational too. But u have to bring a plug.

Oil Palm

The produce of Malaysia...Oil Palm. It has many usage such as soap.
Oh Yes...you must try the coconuts.......the juice is refreshing and the flesh is soft.
