Continuing from my earlier blog post about my memorable lunch during my trip to Bentong, we made a pit stop in Kampong Kemansur. Now, Mokie Home-Baked Pastry snacks are a must to pick up when one makes a trip to Bentong. Thanks to our distinguished guide (he never fails to drop by Mr Mok's place and pick up a whole lot of puff pastries!) who brought us into the home of The Moks; a family who exudes such warmth and extended such hospitality by welcoming us into their home and allowing us a peek into their lives.
When we arrived, we were introduced to The Moks and ushered straight into the kitchen area where we plonked ourselves, smacked in the middle of all the baking action. The aroma of fresh baked pastries filled the air and set off another set of senses, I was absolutely thrilled. While Mrs Mok and their son spoke to us now and then as they went about their work, Mr Mok made sure we were tended to. He poured us tea, chatted with us and asked us to help ourselves to the pastries that were on the table. Fresh from the oven and still on the baking tray...resistance was futile!
The puffs are sold at shops and markets around Bentong and to directly get some pastry love from Mokie Home-Baked Pastry, seek The Moks at

Such an enriching experience, I need to go back to Bentong...not just for the food but for the way I felt when I was there.
