Tropical Fruit Farm

I recently visited the tropical fruit farm in Penang. It was interesting place to visit however a bit costly - charges RM 25/- for adults and RM 17/- for children. I guess they have to do that because they needed to pay the workers to conduct the tour, the gas for the van to take us up to the farm (short distance from the entrance) and of course the all you can eat fruits at the end of the tour.

The tour lasted about 20 minutes where they showed us various tropical fruits some which are not local in Malaysia - imported from neighboring countries. Here are the pictures of the fruits they introduced us to:

Scenary from the top.  You can see the dam and a nearby fishing village - Teluk Bahang.

Identifying the Origin of your product

I received the following article from a friend through email:

A way to differentiate between Taiwan made products and China made products, by looking at first three digits of its Bar Code.

If the 1st 3 digits are 690, 691 or 692 - China made. If the 1st 3 digits are 471 – Taiwan made

I searched through internet and it seems that the article was taken from here.  I did a further search and found that China is actually covered by 690 to 695 - the country look up is found here.

Beware of Credit Card Charges

I recently found out that there was  change in the way the credit card charges are made in Malaysia.

Take the following scenario:

The balance on your credit card is RM 5000.10.

You make your payment in cash so you pay RM 5000/-.  The bank considers that you have not paid your card in full and will charge you.    However, note that they will not charge you based on the 10 cents you did not pay but based on RM 5000.10.

That means you will have a very large service charge.  Apparently, this is done for all the banks.
