Not just that, she has learnt that fig plants requires 4-6 months for planting & harvesting in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ, the fungus from humidity will spoil the fig fruits, also flood as fig needs water but not too much to grow for good harvesting. Fig plant needs half a day sunlight 🌞, so planting them in green house is to protect them from the excessive rain water đŸŒ§ïž Each plant can harvest 30-40 fruits each time. It harvest 2ïžâƒŁ times a year in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ versus once in Turkey đŸ‡čđŸ‡· comparatively, with rotating techniques used, Mutiara Fig manages to have fig harvesting all year round đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ˜

She also learnt the Peat Moss ie. Soil as medium for this plan & CIRT method as an additional compound for the root growth of this plant. The steps are,

  1. Remove outer layer of the plant
  2. Root hormones application
  3. Cut the Peat Moss & CIRT composition bag, spray water & apply again root hormones
  4. Then wrap the bag at the outer layer
  5. After 2ïžâƒŁ weeks root growth on the bag
  6. Another 2ïžâƒŁ weeks transplant the bag to poly bag to grow as a 🆕 plant & place in nursery & place with a dripper (Both fertilizer & water) auto system for daily watering

After transplant, approximately 2ïžâƒŁ months to start the baby fruit 1ïžâƒŁst, then harvest in approximately 5 months later. The fig fruits harvest here are vailable in green 💚, yellow 💛, red ♄ & black đŸ–€ according to the level of sweetness đŸ˜‹đŸ€€

When the musical 1ïžâƒŁst started, all the cast members appeared on stage with bright smiles 😁 & wore on their respective animal’s head gear designed đŸȘ–, in white tee đŸ€ & blue jeans 👖to signify their living in a forest 🌳🌳 It was like back to a traditional theater personally to SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» where the focus all aims on the storyline, songs, cast members’ discussion, instead of technology or LED effects of a fancy high tech stage. Even the projections were very simple & straightforward to address the messages discussed on animals conservation & pollution matters.

Yeah!! It’s September now, time flies : )

If you’ve been following SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ»’s blog stories here, you would have read about her recent art collaboration with WWF Malaysia on tiger 🐅🐯 conservation, read more via 🌐 https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2022/07/29/roar-for-life-eco-festival-in-conjunction-of-global-tiger-day-by-wwf-malaysia/

This round she đŸ‘©đŸ» would like to share about her recent media attendance to witness the official media launch to raising greater conservation awareness with WATER 💩: A Musical đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ presented by Somerset Music & Mr Chin San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ»

WATER 💩 is a musical đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ Tiger 🐅🐯 calls the animals for a meeting to discuss man’s act of deforestation which leads to the pollution of rivers. All the 7ïžâƒŁ animals affirm the sacredness of Mother Earth 🌍, ohh no no…đŸ™…đŸ»â€â™€ïž

Guess what❓⁉

The musical đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ is interactive. The audience are invited to sing đŸŽ€ & dance đŸ©° together with the cast members, wow‌ Absolutely gonna be an exciting & interesting musical experience with a meaningful conservation awareness raised, bravo‌

It’s a collaboration đŸ€đŸ» between playwright/director, Mr Chin San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ» aka nickname in Mandarin ć±±æ°Ž Mountain Water, with music by Ms Joanne Poh đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ of Somerset Music, the audience can look forward to this 60mins of memorable cum interactive engagement with the cast members. Ms Joanne đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ & the cast members have proudly shared during the launch that the music is catchy & interactive for audiences to sing đŸŽ€ & dance đŸ©° along with all cast members during the musical play. Wow‌ SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» is looking forward toward it, how about you❓⁉

Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ» said at the official media launch of WATER at Warung Old China in Kuala Lumpur (KL), West Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ, “I was contemplating writing a play on the topic of conservation when I read of the deforestation that was taking place at the National Park đŸžïžđŸŒłđŸŒł in Pahang, Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ many years ago. I was too earnest & the muse eluded me, till now.”

When the covid lockdown began, Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ» spent 4ïžâƒŁ very productive months occupied, with the end result of finishing 8ïžâƒŁ scripts: 2ïžâƒŁ satires, 3ïžâƒŁ musicals, 2ïžâƒŁ monologues & 1ïžâƒŁ operetta. So, that is how WATER 💩 : A Musical đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ is flowing out to the Malaysian audience in this post-covid environment

It’s really a privilege for SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» to be at this official media launch to hear directly from Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ», Ms Joanne đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ, Mr Khang Nanyao đŸ‘šđŸ» & some cast members of their involvement & preparation of this musical play đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ

Do check out her TikTok clip captured from her media attendance via đŸ“č🌐

Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ» continues to share that: “A musical đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ is more difficult to realise as it is very challenging to compose a piece of music đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶ to lyrics written by another person. I approached Joanne đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ to compose the music. Joanne in her own right is a piano teacher, runs a music school & has sung in choirs & performed on stage. I gave her a year to work on the music. I am glad that Joanne Poh took up the gauntlet with our 3ïžâƒŁ musicians.”

He đŸ‘ŽđŸ» further explained to the media members that during the covid lockdown, he basically spent time on eat 😋, sleep đŸ’€đŸ˜Ž & write âœđŸ», repeat almost the same daily & then produced this play đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ He always wanted to create something relating to pollution & conservation. He just sat down to write without any ideas, then this play materialized naturally. Bravo‌

He đŸ‘ŽđŸ» also admitted to the media members that personally, he is not good in music, not a single note. He understands the difficulty of composing music đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶ from play, so he spoke to Joanne đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ, a music teacher, singer, pianist & more to invite her to compose music for this play. Joanne actually being modest & hesitant to Mr San Sooi’s invitation at the beginning, she managed to produce the music for this play after 1ïžâƒŁ year. Yeah‌

Ms Joanne đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ then shared with the media that a total of 8ïžâƒŁ songs, each animals represent in each music. Why took a year❓⁉ She was procrastinating at 1st, hence delaying it when she was invited by Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ» To her, music đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶ actually comes when you don’t want it from her music experiences. She would like to have her music on how to connect with the audiences. Also to her, the animal’s gender in this play actually makes a difference in her music creation. It’s neutral & simple to looping mind 🧠 when connecting with music đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶ Even for children/ students đŸ‘ŠđŸ»đŸ‘§đŸ»đŸ§’đŸ», to educate them on pollution & conservation through music đŸŽ¶đŸŽ” Of course different for adults & teenagers will be also different. The children will come with adults (ie. Parents/ teachers) to the play, so using appropriate music đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶ to tight in the play script content is really important to connect with the audiences whether during or even out from the theater that the audiences still remembering the conservation messages from this musical play đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ

She đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ further explained that she was hesitant to Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ»’s invitation at the beginning because it’s totally 🆕 to her to put music in this educational play. She was lacking of confidence with totally something 🆕 to her music experiences. She took a lot of courage because she understands well that this music from her needs to be put on stage for the public. At last, she decided to still give it a try. Yeah‌ Ohh ya…Ms Joanne đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’Œ also shared that she was at 1ïžâƒŁst worried about the generation gap with Mr San Sooi, 81 đŸ‘ŽđŸ» who is actually on par with her grand parents age. She appreciates the trust from Mr San Sooi with her to put tunes to his play script created. In fact, she has total freedom in her music creation to this play đŸ‘đŸ»

“WATER 💩 is a combined effort by us in an act of creativity with the members of the cast. The oldest cast member is 61 year old Hilda Looi đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸŠ± & the youngest cast member is school girl, Kirsten Wong, 13 đŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž Together with designer, Khang Nanyao, we have set the stage with the different cast of characters through head gear specially created headwear for Mousedeer 🩌, Tiger 🐯, Elephant 🐘, Monkey đŸ” & Wildboar/ Warthog 🐗 In a small but significant way, we hope that WATER 💩 : A Musical đŸŽ”đŸŽ¶đŸŽŒ would make people be more aware of the environment & treat it with respect & concern. The play could lead to larger issues like conservation of the seas & oceans 🌊,” added Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ»

Mr Khang Nanyao đŸ‘šđŸ» shared during the official media launch that the animal’s head gears were all 3D printed for current edge trending technology. So, the weight of each is not heavy & does not spoil very fast. These head gear with PLA plastics is possible to recycle ♻, but it may require special techniques to recycle them

Hmm…Importance of technology over the nature/ being environment friendly❓⁉ Personally, SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» as a go green 💚 person would think of using a more environmental friendly materials in producing the head gears would be more meaningful to this play on conservation initiative & awareness đŸ’ȘđŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ»đŸ‘đŸ»

Mr Khang Nanyao đŸ‘šđŸ» further explained to media members that he appreciates the trust from Mr San Sooi đŸ‘šđŸ» as he has full control on the hear gear design, yes ✅, basically everything on his own ideas & no restrictions of head gear ideas for this play. It’s actually both the spiritual design with technology design at the same time. He did an open head helmet instead of a covered mask as requested by Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ» His artwork more on live vs death ~ More scary side. Started making a difference in this play by adding in past & future elements to his head gear design. The cause & effect of humans made. To Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ», the white side of the head gear signifies spiritual to him. It’s an interesting interpretation of the head gear created. It took average 4ïžâƒŁ days to produce a head gear of the animal, except 5ïžâƒŁ days for the elephant 🐘 head gear

One of the cast member, Madam Hilda Looi đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸŠ± has shared that her 1ïžâƒŁst play was when she was in 18 yrs old & this musical play is her 2nd involvement as Elephant 1🐘 Being the oldest cast member in this musical play, she is looking forward to working with the younger generation. While the youngest cast member, Ms Kirsten Wong đŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž is not doing much acting before her involvement to this play as Monkey 1đŸ” It’s really a good 🆕 experience to learn new things. While another cast member, Ricky – shared that it’s his 1ïžâƒŁst play as Elephant 2🐘 in this musical play & a lot more to learn

Mr San Sooi đŸ‘ŽđŸ» has added at the end of the official media launch that all cast members will start the rehearsal of this musical play in early Sept.

Absolutely a great đŸ‘đŸ» place for kids to enjoy an educational tour here with farm environment & having fun running, chasing, petting & feeding the animals

Yes ✅, chasing & feeding the small animals within the farm here is possible as the visitors are all able to watch the small animals roam freely in the open compounds & nature settings within this farm without being restrained in cages. Just that don’t ever bully or harm any of these cute small animals ya đŸ’žđŸ‘ŒđŸ»đŸ‘đŸ»

So, SiennyLovesDrawing would like to express special thank you to WWF Malaysia, Fused Labs Sdn Bhd & Artisus for trusting her doodle art passion & invited her to participate & painted on 2ïžâƒŁ tiger collectibles 🐅🐯

For this pair of Malayan Tigers figurines 🐅🐯, SiennyLovesDrawing would like to share her doodles inspiration cum interpretation as below,

The Malayan tiger is the national animal of Malaysia. Actually the Malayan Tiger is 1ïžâƒŁ of the smallest tiger species found throughout the southern & central parts of the Malay Peninsula & southern parts of Thailand đŸ‡č🇭 The Malayan tiger is a tiger from a specific population of the Panthera tigris subspecies that is native to Peninsular Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ This population inhabits the southern & central parts of the Malay Peninsula

The Malayan tiger is Totally Protected under the Wildlife Conservation Act 2010 & is classified as Critically Endangered under the IUCN Red List for Threatened Species since 2015

Meaning of the colours used to doodle on this pair of figurines:

Orange 🧡~ From the Malayan Tiger 🐅🐯 body colour

Black đŸ–€ ~ From the stripes of Malayan Tiger 🐅🐯

White đŸ€ ~ The original colour of the figurines, From the Malaysia flag đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ~ It symbolises purity

Yellow 💛 ~ From the Malaysia flag đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ~ It signifies royal colours of the Malay Rulers. Sienny would like to symbolise it as a bright future of Malaysia of her pair of Malayan Tigers figurines here

Red ♄ ~ From the Malaysia flag đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ~ It symbolises bravery. The tiger symbolises bravery & strength among Malaysians

Blue 💙 ~ From the Malaysia flag đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ~ It symbolises the unity of all Malaysians

Meaning of doodle patterns:

The circular doodle means focus in aiming 🎯 just like the tiger 🐅🐯

Another doodle pattern meant to be the growth of plant đŸŒżđŸŒ± to signifies the jungle 🌳🌳

Meaning of this pair of Malayan Tiger figurines gestures:

Hand gestures ~ STOP 🛑 poaching ‌
The Malayan tiger is already declining due to poaching, habitat loss & fragmentation or degradation, as well as prey loss & now Canine Distemper Virus (CDV) seems to be emerging as yet another threat

Purposely prepared no eyes 👀 on this pair of Malayan Tiger figurines, it’s because tiger cubs are born blind. Their eyes peek open between 6–12 days after birth & they gain full vision after 2 weeks from birth

Asia Art Show ~ An Art Showcase Of Change this August 2022

Hey all đŸ‘‹đŸ», SiennyLovesDrawing would like to share about an upcoming Asia Art Show this Aug 2022 in this blog post

It’s not just a normal showcase of art. Asia Art Show aims to change & impact the artistic scene in Asia especially in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ This is due to the general view & appreciation towards the art industry in Asia 🌏 is way lower than in other parts of the world

Visual art is usually considered a minority industry & the stigma that comes with it is that it does not guarantee a stable & probable future. Even though we have a great number of talented artists in Asia, only 🔟% of them eventually make a living from selling their artworks

.

Thus, here is where the Asia Art Show exhibition comes into play as we take daring steps to host a high-profile art showcase event for the 1ïžâƒŁst time ever in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ This event may not be as prestigious as the Art Basel but we are confident that this is the vital 1ïžâƒŁst step towards uplifting the Asia art industry

Now, the question is, why Asia❓⁉ Not Malaysia❓⁉

The answer is that Asia Art Show aims to become an annual event that connects Asian countries with 1ïžâƒŁ objective to bring the spotlight to talented artists across the continent. The event will be featuring artists from Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ, Indonesia đŸ‡źđŸ‡©, India 🇼🇳, Korea đŸ‡°đŸ‡·, Germany đŸ‡©đŸ‡Ș & many more. Asia Art Show would also like to gather ASIAN CONGLOMERATES in support of the Asian art industry especially Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ & neighbourhood countries

Asia Art Show is a 3ïžâƒŁ-day event held this Aug with the National Day celebration in mind. Even though it is held in the midst of economic crises, we believe that all of these challenges will increase the virtues & values of artists in order to produce more amazing artworks

Isn’t art a form of emotional release & expression❓⁉

Not only that but art also serves as a therapeutic means for people troubled with various challenges & we are certain that our fellow artists are some of the strongest creatives in the scene

.

Over the years, we have been making efforts to promote & sell artworks via charity fundraising events, sponsorships, garage sales & online websites. We strive to connect artists & buyers through these platforms & many more. Asia Art Show will invite over 1000 potential buyers on the 2ïžâƒŁnd day followed by the opening of the gallery to the public on the 3ïžâƒŁrd day. The best thing about art exhibitions in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ is that we offer 🆓 admission in order to encourage more people to embrace the uniqueness of the various expressions of art

Another big feat of our efforts is that we have managed to gauge the interest of a big Fintech specialist company to sponsor the building of our very own e-commerce website via 🌐 http://www.asiaartshowgallery.com which will be officially launched on the 26 Aug 2022

YAB Perdana Menteri Dato Seri Ismail Sabri has been invited to officiate the Charity Dinner taking place on Friday, 26 Aug 2022. This programme includes Special Needs Artists from our respected CSR allies Pusat Latihan Pemulihan Perindustrian Bangi. These unique artists consist of those with various diseases such as autism, bipolar disorders, physical deficiencies, cancer & also stroke patients. Moreover, there will also be a special auction for 20 pieces from these talented artists. A portion of the proceeds will be channeled to selected NGOs

.

We are aiming to sell at least 200 artworks as a benchmark of our success of organizing this grandiose event. In our eyes, this event does not only benefit 1ïžâƒŁ party, but it sincerely will benefit so many parties involved in this event. Our success will majorly depend on the sponsors, artists, buyers, art enthusiasts, media parties & also everyone who put in efforts to make this event a reality

SiennyLovesDrawing as 1ïžâƒŁ of the many art lovers, also will be there to attend this charity event on the 26 Aug 2022, see you all, let’s support talented artists
