WA also takes a 31% market share of Malaysian travellers 👫👭👬 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 memoriesin 2013.
At that time, SiennyLovesDrawing hasn’t started her blogging ✒️🖋📝 journey & she was on her own 💯& backpacking 🎒for that 3 weeks trip with her favourite travel companion ~ Lonely Planet 📚~ & visited frequently to the WA visitor centre during her trip
SiennyLovesDrawing loves to travel 🗺using the train 🚞 🚉🚊wherever possible & coincidently at that time there was a special promotion 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 👨🏻🍳 Tony Howell in person. He is the Tourism WA food 🥘 & 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! 👍🏻
Dish 1 ~ The herb remoulade with scampi caviar ~
Dish 2 ~ The butter poached WA prawns 🦐 🦐 , brioche, nashi pear 🍐, celeriac & pine nut 🥜 ~
Yeah! SiennyLovesDrawing found her gold nuggets! So happy! 😃
SiennyLovesDrawing loves red wine 🍷 as always. She is also a cheese 🧀 lover ❤️ too!
During her WA trip in 2013, 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 🍓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 😋 Moreover not too sweet the chocolate. Secret sharing here, SiennyLovesDrawing loves all kinds of chocolates 😆
There were 3 different types of WA’s hand brew coffee ☕️ 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 📹 of the beautiful coastal & under water world
So beautiful! Wish SiennyLovesDrawing can swim 🏊🏻♀️ & dive to opt for a diving trip at WA to enjoy the real under water view
