Ohh..Why❓⁉️

She just worried 😧 what if suddenly the monkey 🐒 came by again & grabbed her bag 🎒❓She got all her valuables including phone📱, camera 📸 for the media trip 🤭🤗 SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has suggested to the hotel staff 🙋🏽‍♂️to take note of this monkey 🐒 issues & perhaps to seek help from the Malaysian Forestry Office 👮🏽‍♂️👮🏽‍♂️to have proper action to catch the monkeys 🐒🐒 around the hotel 🏘 & returning them to their nature home ~ forest🌳🌳 The hotel staff 🙋🏽‍♂️informed they will manage the necessary from the suggestion raised☺️

Checked out noon time & took pink 💗 van 🚐 to Sg Pinang Jetty ⚓️ for boat transfer 🚤 from Majlis Perbandaran Manjung (MPM) to Marina Jetty ⚓️ for our Transnational bus 🚌 ride to KL aka home sweet home 🏡

Time flies, happy 😃 media trip of 5️⃣D4️⃣N ended with a big smile 😀 on all writers’ faces 👫👭👬
