Read the passage below and answer the questions that follow.
 
Dorai was waiting for his mother to take him home after tuition when he saw two foreign tourists nearby with a map in their hands trying to make out the location of a place. Dorai could tell they were having problems with the map. He approached them.

Dorai :

May I help you ?
Jerry : Oh, hello. Yes. Maybe you can tell us how to get to Royal Selangor.
Dorai : Sure. Take this road and head towards that blue and white building. Then take the turning to your left. Walk down the road until you reach the traffic lights. From that junction you can see Royal Selangor across the road. You can't miss it, it has a big tankard outside the building.
Nick : How long does it take to get there ?
Dorai : Well ... twenty minutes.
Jerry : Can you tell us what is over there ?
Dorai : Royal Selangor is the largest and oldest pewter factory in Malaysia. You can take a guided tour around the factory and see how pewter products are made, from the liquid state to the finished product.
Nick : That sounds interesting.
Dorai : It is. Wait till you lay your hands on a tiny hammer and start knocking out designs on the mug.
Jerry : You mean there's hands-on opportunity for visitors ?
Dorai : Sure. There's more. Look out for the natural polish for pewter. It is a hardy native plant with prickly leaves. Rubbing he leaves against the pewter produces a brilliant finish.
Jerry : That's incredible ! Let's hurry over there, Nick.
Nick : Yeah, let's. Thanks a lot for the directions. You have been a great help.
Jerry : Yeah. thanks, buddy.
Dorai : You're welcome. By the way, there is a showroom that sells souvenirs. You should check it out.
