Roasted Peanuts in Raub

Each speck is the fruit of hardship. Sinn Loong, a family-run peanut factory in Raub, retains the traditional charcoal roasting technique since its establishment back in 1948. Moreover, the processing of peanuts are handled by human hands only. From seasoning, soaking, exposure under the hot sun, roasting, hand-picking, to packaging, the trivial and time-consuming process requires five days to complete. During the rainy season, an additional two to three days may be required.

As the third generation owner, Mr Liew Eng Goon is currently managing this traditional peanut processing business. Now his son Liew Chong Han (transliteration) (the fourth generation), who graduated and has been working in the city for some time, decided to inherit the family business and to sustain the traditional skills. Bear witness to a skill inheritance from generation to generation, similar to cultural heritage, carrying on from ancestors and initiating in descendants, enduring through times.
