Spice Museum Photos
Spice Museum Photos can be viewed here. I
took these photos while I was at the Tropical Spice Garden holding my
Traditional Cooking Classes.
This large Spice Trade map and history chart graces one wall of the Spice
Museum at the Tropical Spice Garden.
On the right is an old weighing scale (daching) using a lever system. On the
left (and below) is a collection of glass jars, earthen jars (tempayan) and
thermos which were used in the old days.
Bags made of natural fibers, on the left are baskets and earthenware jars
used by spice merchants.
Old enameled giant kettles and teapots.
Old metal billy cans and charcoal stove for brewing coffee or tea.
Old molds for making love letters (kuih kapit); it is a popular snacks
among the locals. Crispy and made using coconut milk and grilled over charcoal
fire using the mold.
The main entrance to the Spice Museum.
I simply love the visit to this museum. Even
though it is very small but the exhibits are very enchanting. This museum can be
visited when you enter Tropical Spice Garden, it is included in part of the tour
that you can do yourself. Enjoy the serene atmosphere amidst the greenery. For a
moment, you are in paradise *sigh*
