A Walk at Ghee Hup Nutmeg Factory
This Ghee Hup Nutmeg Factory is run by Mr. Chang Kun Mim. It is located at Balik Pulau (of the Teluk Bahang area) in Penang. Mr. Chang has revolved in this business since he was 15 in 1953. His factory processes pickled nutmeg, pickled papaya and banana chips (the banana chips is very delicious!).
This is Mr. Chang. He is a friendly man (all people in Balik Pulau are so friendly!) and has tons of knowledge regard nutmeg. He will explained everything about nutmeg to whoever go there and he will let us try the nutmeg drink for free.
Nutmeg is rarely found in other state of Malaysia. Mostly, the main distributor is from Penang. Do pay a visit to Mr. Chang if you happen to drop by Penang someday, you will surely gain a lot of useful information!
