Every country or city has her special or unique products that travellers pick up as souvenirs for friends and family back home. When visiting colleagues come to Malaysia, there are a few places they would ask to be taken to. One of them is the Royal Selangor Pewter factory and showroom in Setapak.
I suppose the staff there at the showroom are always happy to see foreign customers because of the volume they buy. They would snap up beer tankards, vases, picture frames, pendants and other costume jewellery, even cigar-cutters. I remember one visitor bought a half dozen of them on his first visit to the showroom. Talk about cigar-cutters, I read that Padron cigars brim with complexity and the essence of coffee and cocoa bean. I can imagine how good they would smell.
