Have you travelling to Western Australia?

Recent statistics ๐Ÿ“ˆ๐Ÿ“Šshow that Australia’s ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ largest State, Western Australia (WA), has seen a significant increase โ†—๏ธ๐Ÿ“ˆ in Malaysian ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ visitors, totalling > 109K pax in year ending December 2016 ~ a 35% increase โ†—๏ธ๐Ÿ“ˆ from the year prior. WA also takes a 31% market share of Malaysian travellers ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ to Australia

It was really a privileged chance that SiennyLovesDrawing was being invited for an evening with Tourism WA recently. This great event certainly recalled her great WA travelling memories in 2014

At that time, SiennyLovesDrawing hasnโ€™t started her blogging โœ’๏ธ๐Ÿ–‹๐Ÿ“ journey & she was on her own ๐Ÿ’ฏ& backpacking ๐ŸŽ’for that 3 weeks trip with her favourite travel companion ~ Lonely Planet ๐Ÿ“š~ & visited frequently to the WA visitor centre during her trip

SiennyLovesDrawing loves to travel ๐Ÿ—บusing the train ๐Ÿšž ๐Ÿš‰๐ŸšŠwherever possible & coincidently at that time there was a special promotion ย on their famous train system then. Of course, SiennyLovesDrawing bought the train pass ๐ŸŽŸ & enjoyed her wonderful Perth train journey

All the guests to the event were given a postcard ๐Ÿž& require a stamping of each after completing the journey of experiencing WA

Wow! So happy that SiennyLovesDrawing got to meet Chef ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ Tony Howell in person. He is the Tourism WA food ๐Ÿฅ˜ & wine ๐Ÿท ambassador. Moreover, SiennyLovesDrawing got to taste his 2 cooking dishes live from the event

Trust me, his cooking style is just so simple, and yet he is able to bring the freshness & natural taste of the food. Amazing! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Dish 1 ~ The herb remoulade with scampi caviar ~

Dish 2 ~ The butter poached WA prawns ๐Ÿฆ ๐Ÿฆ , brioche, nashi pear ๐Ÿ, celeriac & pine nut ๐Ÿฅœ ~

Yeah! SiennyLovesDrawing found her gold nuggets! So happy! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

SiennyLovesDrawing loves red wine ๐Ÿท as always. She is also a cheese ๐Ÿง€ lover โค๏ธ too!

During her WA trip in 2014, she has visited the a famous wine ๐Ÿท town ~ย Margaret River

Then, SiennyLovesDrawing spoke to the Chocolatier & understand from him the different types of chocolates ๐Ÿซto taste, crafted from WA ingredients i.e. sun plums & persimmons, strawberries ๐Ÿ“dark chocolate, caramel brulee, crunch & cream. SiennyLovesDrawing loves the strawberries one the most as there is a strawberry fruit in each chocolate, very chewy & tasty ๐Ÿ˜‹ Moreover not too sweet the chocolate. Secret sharing here, SiennyLovesDrawing loves all kinds of chocolates ๐Ÿ˜†

There were 3 different types of WAโ€™s hand brew coffee โ˜•๏ธ served at the event i.e. Colombia Alma Catura, India Thalanar Estate & Ethiopia Natural.

SiennyLovesDrawing also enjoyed the beer ๐Ÿป served during event. She loves the green one aka IPA i.e. the strongest taste & highest in alcohol contains. However, the beer still smooth & tasty to drink

SiennyLovesDrawing also enjoyed the Virtual Reality video ๐Ÿ“น of the beautiful coastal & under water world

So beautiful! Wish SiennyLovesDrawing can swim ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ & dive to opt for a diving trip at WA to enjoy the real under water view

SiennyLovesDrawing also participated a colouring & decoration of a postcard. However, she was so blur until left her beautiful master piece at the event…Sigh…Hope the card was well kept by the person who found it from the event then

Yeah! SiennyLovesDrawing completed all her WA experiences & obtained all stamps throughout. Fantastic event! ๐Ÿ˜

So, let’s plan your WA trip too!
