img_0958img_0969

Very fresh tasty πŸ˜‹πŸ€€Β & tangy shrimps to enjoy 🍀🍀

Yeah‼️ Fingers licking great‼️ πŸ‘

Moreover Khun Mai πŸ§•πŸ½Β didn’t put in lots of chilies, so not too spicy ❌🌢 for SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ»Β to enjoy

She πŸ‘©πŸ» has requested for additional sourish, so more organic lime juices being added in to this pot, absolutely delicious to enjoy πŸ˜‹πŸ€€

Black Pepper & Garlic Shrimps 🍀🍀

Hmm…Perhaps the shrimps 🍀🍀 for this dish were relatively smaller, so its meat slightly softer comparatively

img_0907

The black pepper flavour wasn’t too strong to enjoy, love ❀️ the taste as the garlic & black pepper really blended well πŸ‘Β for this dish

Garlic Fried Sea Bass 🐟

Hey all‼️ How have you spent your 2018 year end break❓⁉️

SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ»Β would like to sharing πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ“ about her 2018 year end travelling πŸŽ’πŸ•ΆπŸ‘ŸπŸ§’ with Take Me Tour, Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­

Pick 1️⃣ ~Β Samut Sakhon from Bangkok: Salt Farm Tour & Homemade Seafood ~Β 

Yes βœ…, she πŸ‘©πŸ» has booked πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ›’ more than a tour…do stay tune for her next blogging ya πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ“

Do consider for your convenience especially with night πŸŒƒπŸŒŒπŸ›¬ arrival ya

Before she πŸ‘©πŸ» has decided on this tour, she πŸ‘©πŸ» has read πŸ“– about the local expert of this said tour named Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ who has introduced herself as a wanderer in this small village & then become a close friend to many villagers πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬

During the tour, SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» has observed that Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ really having a great πŸ‘πŸ» relationship with the villagers πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« & communicating well πŸ—£πŸ‘₯πŸ‘€πŸ‘₯ with them.

She πŸ‘©πŸ» also truly believes that Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈhas chosen βœ… to lead this day tour to introduce to all guests πŸ‘¬πŸ‘­πŸ‘« about this small village in a less travelledΒ  province ~ Samut Sakhon, Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ i.e. from the salt water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ gate, mangrove forest 🌳🌳 , salt farm, home made seafoods πŸ½πŸ΄πŸ¦€πŸ¦πŸŸ etc.

Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ also aims to help to boost ⬆️ the economy of this small village & increase ⬆️ the earning power πŸ’° of the villagers πŸ‘­πŸ‘«πŸ‘¬ here especially during the raining β˜”οΈπŸŒ§ season where most of the salt farmers here will be experiencing the low ⬇️ salt harvesting

Hmm…How’s this day tour thoughout❓⁉️

She πŸ‘©πŸ» woke up early that morning πŸ”…πŸ”† & went for a local Thai “bak kut teh” breakfast πŸ˜‹πŸ€€ , a non-halal dish ~ herb pork πŸ–πŸ·πŸ½ soup 🍲πŸ₯£ served with riceΒ πŸ›πŸ˜‹πŸ€€ It’s just a stall outside of a local Thai πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­πŸ‘«‘s home 🏠🏑 & within walking πŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈ distance fromΒ her hotel 🏒 namedΒ Bangkok Loft InnΒ 

This hotel 🏒 is located atπŸ“55 Somdet Phra Chao Taksin Rd., Bangyeerua, Thonburi, Bangkok 10600, Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ A nice πŸ‘πŸ» comfy stay πŸ›ŒπŸšΏπŸš½with its strategic locationπŸ“ i.e. 5️⃣mins walking πŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈ distance to the Wongwian Yai BTS skytrain station πŸš‰, very convenient πŸ†—πŸ†’ More details for your hotel booking πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ›’ via 🌐 http://www.bangkokloftinn.com/Β 

After breakfast πŸ½πŸ΄πŸ˜‹πŸ€€, she πŸ‘©πŸ» then proceeded πŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈto take the BTS skytrain 🚊 from Wongwian Yai station πŸš‰Β Oppsss…Too early arrival πŸ”…πŸ”† atΒ BTS stationΒ named Wutthakat πŸš‰, not because of the time difference ya…

Yesβœ…, she was about 1️⃣ hour early from meet up @ 9️⃣am to meet up with Khun HansaΒ πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ as stated in her Take Me Tour booking πŸ“Œ Just too excited πŸ˜† for the day tour, Ha…Ha…Don’t laugh πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚ at her ya

Hmm…She πŸ‘©πŸ» was a bit lazy, else she would have walkπŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈto visit this wat Β β›©Β nearby that morning πŸ”…πŸ”† Instead she πŸ‘©πŸ» seated down in the BTS station πŸš‰ & then logged in to her social medias πŸ“± & catching up with her friends & family members πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬Β with her new πŸ†• Β Thai simcard named DTAC , more details via 🌐 https://www.dtac.co.th/en/move-to-dtac/

Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ was early to arrive too, so both πŸ‘©πŸ»πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ then started this day tour slightly early that the scheduled time of 9️⃣am

Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ is so friendly & shares the same travel passion as SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ», hence lots of common interest to chit chat πŸ—£πŸ‘€ about during their approximately 30mins journey πŸš™ to Samut Sakhon province, also known by the locals as “Maha Chai” πŸ˜€

Both happily πŸ˜ƒ exchanged lots of respective travel stories, always a nice πŸ‘πŸ» meet & catch up with a travel lover during travel journeys 😁

As you have reading πŸ“– her earlier blogging πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ“ here, she πŸ‘©πŸ» has visited plenty of mangrove parks 🌳🌳 in her home country ~ Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ

However, this is SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ»‘s 1️⃣st visit to a Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­‘s natural coastal mangrove forest 🌳🌳,Β a home to a wide variety of birds πŸ¦…πŸ¦ & mudskippers 🐟🐟 & along the Gulf of Thailand πŸŒŠπŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­

Oppsss…The mudskippers 🐟🐟 here are fat & huge, it was high tides 🌊 during her visit, so not able ❌ to note the colourful Hermit crabs πŸšπŸ¦€crawling on the muddy field 😌☺️

Not to missed a visit to its mini museum / perhaps more to a conservation project centre πŸ’šπŸ’š with a collection of whale πŸ‹πŸ³ skeletons, details about some small animals lived in this forest 🌳🌳 before as well asΒ some its on-going marine conservation initiatives πŸŒŠπŸ’šπŸ’š here i.e. mangrove trees planting 🌳🌳, a bamboo πŸŽπŸŽ‹ border project to avoid further water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ & soil erosion to this forest 🌳🌳 etc.

These eco πŸ’šπŸ’š sustainable initiatives aim to buidling the bamboo borders πŸŽπŸŽ‹ within the mangrove forest 🌳🌳 were observed by SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» during her visit to protect the mangroves 🌳 being sapling from the sea waves 🌊 ‘ destruction, then soil erosion πŸ˜§πŸ˜²πŸ™ƒ

Guess what❓⁉️

Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈnot just a great πŸ‘πŸ» local expert in sharing her knowledge about this village, she is also a great photographer πŸ“Έ

Special thank you πŸ™πŸ» for theΒ beautiful 😍 photos πŸ“Έ of SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» during this mangrove forest 🌳🌳 walkπŸšΆπŸ»β€β™€οΈya πŸ€—

Next, Khun Hansa πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈΒ also brought her to a local cafe πŸ½β˜•οΈΒ (Hmm…In Thai name which SiennyLovesDrawing is unable to share the name, refer photo below for the cafe details) by her friend named Joy πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ & her adorable shy daughter named Minnie πŸ‘§πŸ» It was a pleasure to meet them & had a quick chit chat about Joy πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ’s recent visit to her orchard plantation 🌱🌿 in Central of Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ , she plants 🌱🌿 for macadomia nuts πŸ₯œ , coffee trees β˜•οΈπŸŒ³, pineapples 🍍 etc. Love πŸ’— all the photos πŸ“ΈπŸ“± shared by Joy πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ, you will definitely note her passion in plantations πŸ’—πŸŒ±πŸŒΏ

She πŸ‘©πŸ» has observed during the car πŸš™ journey towards the salt farm that some of the farmers πŸ‘¬πŸ‘¬πŸ‘¬ here busy hand picking cockles 🐚 in the farms πŸ˜„

Yeah‼️ Next, she πŸ‘©πŸ» has proceeded to visit the salt farm πŸ˜ƒ

Yes βœ…, the highlight ✨of this tour & she πŸ‘©πŸ» has been long awaited for. Hmm….Why❓⁉️

This is because she πŸ‘©πŸ» wanted to visit salt farm in Kampot village, Cambodia πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ during her Phnom Penh trip in Nov. However, due to a last mins plan, no ❌ hotel available 🏒 as it was the annual water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ festival celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ , so SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» was forced to cancel ❌ the Kampot visit plan, hence no ❌ chance to have her 1️⃣st visit to a salt farm πŸ˜ŒπŸ˜”

Everything happens for a reason, then this Take Me Tour booking πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ›’βœ… has now fulfilled πŸ†’πŸ†— her wish to visit a salt farm, so happy πŸ˜ƒβ€ΌοΈ

Salt farming is seasonal & visiting during the dry season between January to April would capture the best view πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜

Sea water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ is 1️⃣st being pumping into the farms.Β  Then, the sea water πŸ’¦πŸ’§will be evaporated over a period of time, the layers of salt will be manually collected by the salt farmers πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬

She πŸ‘©πŸ» has met with the salt farmers πŸ‘¬πŸ‘­πŸ‘«’ family, learnt & discovered how the salt formed & also enjoy a home cooked lunch 🍽🍴with the top πŸ‘†πŸ»notch salt & fresh seafood πŸ¦€πŸ¦πŸŸ served from the salt farm to table πŸ˜‹πŸ€€

6 Must-Do Experiences in Phatthalung, Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» had a short vacation πŸ›« recently to Phatthalung ΰΈžΰΈ±ΰΈ—ΰΈ₯ΰΈΈΰΈ‡ of Southern Thailand πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ It’s just approximately 2️⃣ hours road journey 🚌🚍 from Hatyai πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­

So, what’s the exciting places πŸ“πŸ“ in Phatthalung❓⁉️

Here you go, she is gonna sharing πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ“ about the 6️⃣ must-do experiences πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘†πŸ»from her recent travel journey πŸŽ’πŸ•ΆπŸ§’πŸ‘Ÿ

1. Canoeing Rafting @ Longkang Chowdaw

Amazing colourful πŸ’šπŸ’œπŸ’— canoeing πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ rafting πŸ’¦πŸ’§ with green nature πŸ’šπŸŒ±πŸŒΏπŸŒ³ surroundings at both sides of the river πŸ’¦πŸ’§~ Nan Mot Daeng, Pah Phayom district, Phatthalung province. The river water πŸ’¦πŸ’§just so cooling & crystal πŸ’Ž clear which SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» has observed fishes 🐟🐟 & seaweeds 🌿🌿 from above the water πŸ’¦πŸ’§during her canoeing journey πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜

Hmm…Nan Mot Daeng❓⁉️ What it means❓⁉️

She has asked the local people πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­πŸ‘«πŸ‘¬πŸ‘­ & was explained that in local Thai dialect

  • β€œNan” means β€œKaeng” i.e. rapids
  • β€œMot Daeng” means red ants 🐜

According to the local Thai people πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ here, Nan Mot Daeng is a never-ending source for fishes 🐟🐟 Once they got the fish 🎣, they would cut the head & tail of the fish 🐟 Then, the smell of the fish 🐟 will attract numerous red ants 🐜 to feast on it 🐟 In this connection, the origin of the name β€œNan Mot Daeng” πŸ˜€

 

The rafting πŸ’¦πŸ’§distance of approximately 6️⃣km i.e. 2️⃣hours in total. She has enjoyed with friends πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ the canoeing πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ along the narrow stream through about 4️⃣0️⃣rapids with the difficulty between Levels 1️⃣ to 3️⃣ Not to worry as she was without great canoeing πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ skill & yet she really had great fun πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜ƒ Really highly recommended πŸ‘†πŸ» & not to be missed ya 🀩😎

At some strong currents flowing πŸ’¦πŸ’§ if the canoes were πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ being flipped upside-down β†•οΈπŸ”ƒπŸ”„ are considered normal, yes βœ… , it forms part of the fun πŸ€£πŸ˜†

Guess what❓⁉️

In the middle of the river πŸ’¦πŸ’§, you may stop πŸ›‘βœ‹ by for resting at a local 7-11 stall πŸ˜€ She has enjoyed a local berries πŸ’πŸ’

You may enjoy canoeing πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ rafting here all year long, no specific season, however if raining πŸŒ§β˜”οΈ season, the water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ level will be higher & certain rapids would be rougher to enjoy the excitement πŸ€£πŸ˜†

You may consider here for hotel accommodation πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ›ŒπŸšΏπŸš½SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» has enjoyed a comfy stay here with friends πŸ‘­πŸ‘­
