One popular local chinese series called Glowing Ember was shown in NTV7 lately. Most of the series were filmed in Kuala Sepetang... my girl and I were "hooked" on that mandarin series, partly because the storyline was nice and also partly it was filmed in Kuala Sepetang, Taiping.
The show was about a charcoal tycoon, a man with two wives, one wife paralysed and she encouraged her husband to marry another younger lady. Then the saga began.... how 2nd wife gained power, the boss at her mercy.... etc etc....
Then last week when we visited Kuala Sepetang, we made a stop at the charcoal factory.... and learn how charcoal is processed.... (remember studying about charcoal during my school days.. i think i have returned all the knowledge to my teachers, whoever they are... )

Wow! What a cool, informative post! I love learning new things like this. I didn't know how charcoal was made or what it is made from, never even thought of it! So it's made from mangrove trees!! Are you talking about the charcoal bricks like you put on the grill? There's also black charcoal tablets you can take for gas. I think you are given charcoal in the hospital to absorb and poison you ingested, as well. I know they give it to dogs who ahve drunk anti-freeze.ReplyDelete
What show is that? Is it Age of Glory 2?ReplyDelete
I use charcoal shampoo! Haha

Clair: We never see how charcoal is made so your photos are really neat of the process. I worked for a company that used a kiln to make ceramic parts from clay.ReplyDelete
Eh, at least you n your girl went and visited the shots where they filmed the show "Glowing Embers".ReplyDelete
How u wished the actors and actresses were there, then you get their autograph, mah.

fishingguy: sometimes going to places like this is educational to the kids and adults as well :)ReplyDelete
Interesting place. I don't watch Chinese series (In fact, I don't watch anything at all. Can't concentrate for so long - like little kinds! LOL!!!)but my missus does. Maybe she knows what you're talking about...ReplyDelete
This is probably the first time I came to know about a film being shot in a charcoal factory. It might be due to the requirement of this type of sequences in the film. But one thing I must say that it is not fair to cut down the valuable mangrove forest for charcoal. Thanks for the information. Bye.ReplyDelete
