We recently moved to our new house in Shah Alam, a place we put in a lot of effort into making it the way we want – with a bigger kitchen & living area, a loft for Haze to do her painting, and even a small pool and koi pond with wooden decking by the small strip of land on the side.

The move actually contributes to a bit of a change to our lifestyle. From eating out almost every meal, we now find ourselves cooking and preparing food at home quite a fair bit more. This is due to both the location being slightly further away from our usual food hunting ground, the availability of better cooking space, and most importantly, a much nicer place to chill and enjoy eating in.

Which brings us to one of the essentials in every home – coffee, and particularly instant coffee that I can literally just prepare in a minute. And when it comes to instant coffee, OLDTOWN White Coffee is a name most everyone in the country recognizes.

Originated from the historic town of Ipoh, OLDTOWN is one of the earliest brands of white coffee I came across. The coffee is roasted with a careful blend of Arabica, Robusta and Liberica beans to ensure every cup is full-bodied, smooth, and creamy, getting as close as possible to those you will get from the good old fashion coffee shops in the olden day Ipoh.

In fact, the OLDTOWN white coffee you get to a is a still being crafted with the same tried and true recipe since it was first introduced. After all, why stray away from what is already proven?

The OLDTOWN White Coffee product available in Malaysia includes:

  • OLDTOWN White Coffee 3 In 1 Classic
  • OLDTOWN White Coffee 3 In 1 Hazelnut
  • OLDTOWN White Coffee 3 In 1 Natural Cane Sugar
  • OLDTOWN White Coffee 3 In 1 Less Sugar
  • OLDTOWN White Coffee 2 In 1 Coffee & Creamer

The classic is the best seller, and it is easy to see why. The classic is smooth, flavorful, and tastes pretty much like those you have at the outlet, relaxing on the deck with a cup of steaming classic is a bliss. For those who likes it with less sugar or only creamer, as well as cane sugar, there’re such options too, and if you like your coffee a bit more “modern”, the hazelnut variant should not disappoint.

I am happy that OLDTOWN is able to bring the local heritage and packaged it with such convenience, would have been nice if we had this when I was studying overseas over a decade ago. The mat salleh type of brewed coffee that is sometimes sourish was never really my type of taste, having these available then would have made home felt closer, the impact would have been even more if you consider how less connected the world was back then.

    I’ve tried Old Town, but I prefer Check Hup (this is Suan’s fault, and I bet she doesn’t even remember why).

    Also, that first pic should’ve been Haze in a bikini.

    This is the most popular souvenir that my American work counterparts absolutely love! I first brought one of them for lunch in OldTown a few years ago and he loved the coffee, so he brought a few packs of those OldTown 3-in-1s back home. Now all of them who come here for work would buy and bring loads of them back. Forget keychains and dodol and other snacks, white coffee is the best souvenir for them.

    Niceee pool.
    Yes, with a nice home and ambiance you won’t want to go out much.

    I prefer the cane sugar version. It is my regular morning coffee.
