Have you travelling to Western Australia?

Recent statistics πŸ“ˆπŸ“Šshow that Australia’s πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί largest State, Western Australia (WA), has seen a significant increase β†—οΈπŸ“ˆ in Malaysian πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ visitors, totalling > 109K pax in year ending December 2016 ~ a 35% increase β†—οΈπŸ“ˆ from the year prior. WA also takes a 31% market share of Malaysian travellers πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ 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 hasn’t started her blogging βœ’οΈπŸ–‹πŸ“ journey & she was on her own πŸ’―& backpacking πŸŽ’for that 3 weeks trip with her favourite travel companion ~ Lonely Planet πŸ“š~ & visited frequently to the WA visitor centre during her trip

SiennyLovesDrawing loves to travel πŸ—Ίusing the train 🚞 πŸš‰πŸšŠwherever possible & coincidently at that time there was a special promotion Β on their famous train system then. Of course, SiennyLovesDrawing bought the train pass 🎟 & enjoyed her wonderful Perth train journey

All the guests to the event were given a postcard 🏞& require a stamping of each after completing the journey of experiencing WA

Wow! So happy that SiennyLovesDrawing got to meet Chef πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ³ Tony Howell in person. He is the Tourism WA food πŸ₯˜ & wine 🍷 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! πŸ‘πŸ»

Dish 1 ~ The herb remoulade with scampi caviar ~

Dish 2 ~ The butter poached WA prawns 🦐 🦐 , brioche, nashi pear 🍐, celeriac & pine nut πŸ₯œ ~

Yeah! SiennyLovesDrawing found her gold nuggets! So happy! πŸ˜ƒ

SiennyLovesDrawing loves red wine 🍷 as always. She is also a cheese πŸ§€ lover ❀️ too!

During her WA trip in 2014, she has visited the a famous wine 🍷 town ~ Margaret River

Then, SiennyLovesDrawing spoke to the Chocolatier & understand from him the different types of chocolates 🍫to taste, crafted from WA ingredients i.e. sun plums & persimmons, strawberries πŸ“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 πŸ˜‹ Moreover not too sweet the chocolate. Secret sharing here, SiennyLovesDrawing loves all kinds of chocolates πŸ˜†

There were 3 different types of WA’s hand brew coffee β˜•οΈ served at the event i.e. Colombia Alma Catura, India Thalanar Estate & Ethiopia Natural.

SiennyLovesDrawing also enjoyed the beer 🍻 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 πŸ“Ή of the beautiful coastal & under water world

So beautiful! Wish SiennyLovesDrawing can swim πŸŠπŸ»β€β™€οΈ & 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! 😁

So, let’s plan your WA trip too!
