A Growing Bakery Cafe Chain "Bread History"

A successful pastry business with more than 10 outlets 

With great demand, come a great business opportunity. When the last time we were making pastries at home ? Certainly most of us staying in Malaysia could never really bake. We do not have the essential skill and tools. Meanwhile, the ever-growing demand for delicious pastry is huge. Tell me you as a Malaysian like Roti Canai and Roti Planta. It is the same, it made from flour.

Do not get to close to the picture. Should call it as a chocolate doughnut. The real name is Chocolate Ring. I still feel the chocolate in my mouth.

One thing I have noticed is that the pastry business is lucrative. the price of pastry is increase from time to time as flour is expensive stuff in the market right now.

Teh Tarik Place with Nasi Goreng Ayam and Bandung Sirap

Nasi Goreng Ayam

It would surprise you that serving customer a fusion of Malay and Indian cuisine. The best food will be the Rempah Chicken which normally a cuisine origin in Malay community. Surprisingly, the restaurant does serve customer a set of cuisine usually done by Mamak restaurant. One would order Roti Canai there too.

Teh Tarik Bandung Sirap

A taste of Pink colored drink with the smell of fresh milk. Bandung sirap is the perfect drink beside Teh Tarik.

Unlike a normal coffee shop, local franchise restaurants are charging higher average price for its service and food quality.

Do not feel any guilty not to order Teh Tarik because the shop does not really emphasize the drink in any form. You may order a cup of Teh Tarik which is half the name of restaurant..

In Teh Tarik Place website, providing information about the opportunity for franchise. Whoever wish to open restaurant, you may want to get a piece of information in their website.

Embark a trip from Sunway Carnival Mall Bus Stop to Penang's Gurney Plaza

Penang Rapid Bus Ticket

Public Transportation is always the ideal choice as to keep all the cash on the food expenses. There is a nice bus stop located just nearby Billion store and Sunway Carnival Mall. Many buses stopped here , take the bus showing " Jetty" . Ask the driver they know best ! From this point, the bus will take you to various bus stops before heading to Jetty. One of the bus stop is Hospital Seberang Jaya.

It took one hour more or less depend on the traffic condition. As soon as one arrived the last bus checkpoint "Jetty", there are lots of buses parked at there.

RM1.20 ferry ride to Penang
Pay for a ferry ride to Penang Island

Get your coins ready before entering to "Jetty's waiting place". The gate is not functioning well so put more coins. I have inserted more than RM 1.20 worth of coins. Queue up to get some old coins as the staff said the gate recognize old coins rather than the new coin. 

Ample seats for passengers waiting for next ferry. Rushing in once the yellow gate opened. Feeling nervous there would not be enough ferry seats being forced to wait another ferry. Relieved, the ferry able to get loads of passengers on board.
