A visit to charcoal factory at Kuala Sepetang, Taiping, Malaysia with my wife and friends. Kuala Sepetang Charcoal Factory has always been one of my favourite photography locations and place to take photographs. We had an amazing time, lot of fun and it has been a fruitful experience to take photographs and witness how charcoal is being made. I hope you enjoy these photographs and thank you for taking your time to visit my blog. I would also like to express my gratitude and appreciation to my wife and friends who helped and assisted me during my stay in Taiping. =)
