Thank you for your good work on this website. Malaysia towns has always a special lure for someone like me who live in the city all my life.

I have seen from a documentory about a certain Mr Chia from Tangkak whose family business is in the durian plantation. They export durians to Singapore daily during the seasons and they also have a shop front (possibly in Tangkak) that caters to customer that comes by the bus load to savour thier durians. May I know if you have any location info of this shop in Tangkak?
