Kubang Jela House Stay @ Terrapuri Heritage Village, Terengganu, Malaysia

Yeah‼️ From the recent travel 🚌🚍 to Terengganu 🇲🇾, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 had an exclusive privilege to meet 👋🏻 & have a short chat 🗣👤 with the founder of Terrapuri Heritage Village, Mr Alex Lee 👨🏻‍💼 He is a Chinese Peranakan, born & grown up in Marang, Terengganu 🇲🇾

She 👩🏻 is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝✍🏻 here about all she 👩🏻 has learnt from her chat 🗣👤 with Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼about the ups ⬆️ & downs ⬇️ in pursuing his passion ❤️ towards the conservation & restoration of Terengganu traditional Malay architecture 🏡🏘 He 👨🏻‍💼 has proudly told that he loves 💗 each old houses 🏡🏘 that he has collected thus far & each 1️⃣ is unique to him with a story behind respectively 😀

Question❓: Can you spot SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 in below photos 📸📸 album? She 👩🏻 was having a nice 👍🏻 pre-dinner chat 🗣👤with Mr Alex @ Sesayap Courtyard, Terrapuri Heritage Village during her recent stay

 

 

 

 

Ha…Ha…She 👩🏻 actually thought that Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼was an architect by profession. Mr Alex has confirmed that he is a tourism industry player with own tourism businesses in guest house 🏡 , boutique hotel, dining 🍽🍴, cafe ☕️, tours, souvenirs (batik) ğŸ›ğŸŽ etc.

Guess what❓⁉️

Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼1️⃣st started to learn about guest house 🏡 renting (i.e. used his grandpa 👴🏻 ‘s 2️⃣ shoplots 🏢🏢) at his young age 🧑🏻 with initial intention to save for his education fund ğŸ‘¨ğŸ»â€ğŸŽ“He used to drawing âœğŸ»ğŸŽ¨ğŸ–Œown brochure to selling the rooms at bus stations 🚌🚌 & received great responses from many backpackers 👫👭👬back then. He 👨🏻‍💼also learnt how to package his room with simple breakfast ☕️🥪, yes ✅, he can cook‼️👍🏻

 

 

 

Ended up he 👨🏻‍💼 continues his tourism business till now without further study âŒğŸ‘¨ğŸ»â€ğŸŽ“despite in years between 2006 to 2008 with a cross road 🔀 for his choice, whether IT vs heritage, nature & culture. Obviously he 👨🏻‍💼has chosen the later. Ha…Ha…He has shared in his IG (refer above 📸) recently that he wants to be a Youtuber (IT) now (2019) being inspired by his youngest son 👨‍👦, a famous gaming Youtuber

Also she 👩🏻 is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 about her wonderful overnight 😴💤🛌 in Kubang Jela house 🏡 in this village. Hmm…A night 🌌🌃 stay just too short, personally she 👩🏻 recommends for a 3️⃣D2️⃣N to appreciating the layout of an inspired 17th century Terengganu Palace 👑 as an great 👍🏻 output of restoration the Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘 of at least 💯 years & above, as well as its peaceful village surrounding ğŸž

 

 

💯 years meaning easily at least with 4️⃣ generations before Mr Alex👨🏻‍💼bought the old houses 🏡🏘 Some of the houses 🏡🏘 were once belong to the royal families 👑👑 Woow‼️😲 He 👨🏻‍💼has shared that 30 years ago, a full Terengganu old house 🏠 each cost of RM30K to 40K approximately 😊

How about now❓⁉️

He 👨🏻‍💼 estimates RM300K & above each old house 🏠 at current. He 👨🏻‍💼 has no ❌ intention to resell any of his Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘 collected, though he 👨🏻‍💼 was being offered with great 👍🏻 prices 💱💰couple of times in the past 😃

 

 

Hmm…Does Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼regret❓⁉️

Personally SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻can confidently said “No ❌” from her observation, Mr Alex’s achievements from Terrapuri Heritage Village & chat with him🗣👤 about his journey

Why❓⁉️

You will be impressed as Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼is very knowledgeable & passionate ❤️ in what he is doing for Terengganu old houses restoration & conservation 🏡🏘

 

 

Over the years, he 👨🏻‍💼hopes to continue & enhancing his project as a tourism products, currently he 👨🏻‍💼is running this Terrapuri Heritage Village as a boutique hotel resort space 🏡🏘 Owned a museum cafe dining 🍽🍴 (with advanced booking ğŸ“žâ˜Žï¸ğŸ“±for event etc.) & an upcoming Terramalai, a collection of traditional Malay houses 🏡🏘 from all over the states in Malaysia 🇲🇾 & will be based in Batu Rakit, Kuala Nerus district of Terengganu 😁

After bought each houses 🏡🏘, all will be dismantled & then rebuilt. All Terengganu old houses 🏡🏘 were built without ❌ a single nail 🔨, it’s using the traditional “tebuk pasak” aka peg & joint technique with the help from the professional skillful Malay carpenters aka “tukang rumah” in Malaysia 🇲🇾 ‘s national language 😀

 

He 👨🏻‍💼emphasised few times in his sharing “We have to always go back to our own root. Culture is so beautiful & unique not to be shared to next generations 👶🏻👧🏻🧒🏻👦🏻🧑🏻

He 👨🏻‍💼has shared that he was struggled 😢☹️😔to communicate, convince the house owners 👬👬👬 to sell 💱💰their houses 🏡🏘 to him when he 1️⃣st started his heritage collection. Reason being he is a Chinese Peranakan, not a Muslim ❌☪️ He also proudly shared that he speaks fluent Terengganu Malay & this has helped a lot 😊

Once he 👨🏻‍💼has indentified ✅ the old house 🏠 that he is interested, he will slowly get to know the local house owner 1️⃣st. He is very persevere in his collection passion, he patiently kept visiting, communicating 🗣👤 Then, after knowing him better & appreciate his passion ❤️towards the Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘, the house owner will sell their old house to him 💱💰 eventually

 

Guess what❓⁉️

There was an old house 🏠 that actually took him 15 years ✅🏡 after many many communications with the owner 🗣👤 Wow‼️😲 It’s named as Rumah Pulau Bahagia in Terrapuri Heritage Village & yet to be ready as guest villa currently ☺️

Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼has actually collected the old houses 🏡🏘 for 18 years (all being dismantled & stored at the backyard of his parents 👵🏻👴🏻house, on top of stones & covered with zinc to protect the chengal wood) before he bought this 4 ha land in 2005 which surrounding with islands 🏝🌴 & Setiu mangroves wetlands (Safe from tsunami 🌊 & chance to view fireflies 💫✨at night) in Kg. Mangkuk

 

He 👨🏻‍💼was discouraged ğŸ‘ŽğŸ»by family members & friends 👫👭👬 at the beginning that he shoud invest in other investment & not ❌ in restoration project. Also not in Terengganu as the location 📍that he has chosen ✅😃

Restoration requires for a long time frame & huge sum of money 💰💵 to maintain. He actually 👨🏻‍💼sold off his luxury cars 🚗🚙 & properties before just to continue this restoration project. No any ❌ bank loan/ Government grant has obtained becasue this is a non profit/ business investment 🏡🏘

His passion ❤️ in Terengganu old houses 🏡🏘restoration that motivates him to continue his journey till now, future & never end 😁

Question❓: Do you spot a smiling 😃 craving in below photo📸❓⁉️

 

Terengganu Traditional Malay Old Houses 🏡🏘

From her chat 🗣👤 with Mr Alex, she 👩🏻 has learnt that the balance ⚖️ is important in Malay belief, hence the height & wide of each house 🏡 is required to have good 👍🏻 ukiran rumah aka house 🏠 measurement as it also meant for good 👍🏻 feng sui. To Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼, life is a balance too, not just about making money 💰💵

The houses 🏡🏘 built with high legs to protect from flood & with aims to scard away the animals 🐘🦏🐅

The stairs (i.e. “tangga” in Malaysia 🇲🇾 ‘s national language) to each Malay house 🏠 must with an odd numbers eg. 3️⃣, 5️⃣, 7️⃣ etc.

 

 

She 👩🏻 has learnt that there is meaning for Terengganu house 🏠 gate. She was told if you have bad intention (e.g. to rob the house owner) when you step 👣 into the house 🏠 , you may end up unable to see the house gate to exit then🚪

Generally, the Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘 are with beautiful 😍😍 wall craving, Islamic ☪️ influences, more to flora designs, some stupa are more towards Buddhism ⛩ No ❌ devil craving motives

 

There are 29 houses 🏡🏘 in this Terrapuri Heritage Village since 2012 i.e. 20 houses 🏡🏘 have been restored as guest villas & the remaining 9 houses serve as the resort reception, courtyard, spa, meeting room, library etc. ☺️

Actually he 👨🏻‍💼 has bought 💰💵💯 over houses 🏡🏘, only 29 units in this village while the rest serves as spare parts as most houses 🏡🏘 bought are only 70% able to be used due to extensively damaged & had rotting wood

Sea Turtle Package @ Resorts World Kijal

Yeah‼️ When SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 was travelled to Terengganu, Malaysia 🇲🇾 for the squid 🦑 jigging festival early this year, she was wishing & hoping for the famous turtles 🐢🐢 watching 👀 at night 🌃🌌 in the same state too

Guess what ❓⁉️

Her dream came true with the exclusive media invitation 📩📧💌 by Resorts World Genting (RWG) ğŸ¢ğŸžğŸš  to witness the circle of life as turtles 🐢🐢 return to the beach at its Resorts World Kijal (RWK)🏢🏝🏖, Terengganu, Malaysia 🇲🇾

Yes ✅, she 👩🏻 is blessed 😇 Of course she will continue to deliver her best in her blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 passion ya 😃✌🏻

Yeah‼️ Turtles 🐢🐢 watching 👀‼️

 

The amazing 🤩 sight of a mum turtle 🐢 that ambled up to the beach 🏝🏖 to ensure that her next generation ~ baby turtles 🐢 🐢 are safely deposited in sand always 1️⃣ to cherish. As the turtle 🐢 watching 👀 season on Peninsular Malaysia 🇲🇾’s East Coast reaches its peak from May to Sept annually, RWK 🏢🏝🏖in Terengganu remains as 1️⃣ of the best 👍🏻 places in Malaysia 🇲🇾 to spot & appreciate these majestic creatures on their annual return to the shore 🐢🏝🌊 Yeah‼️

Obviously straight away she said “Yes ✅” & RSVPed her participation ✌🏻😃😁 Hurray‼️

Upon arrival & checked in, she 👩🏻 was 1️⃣st impressed with its window view ~ The breathtaking sea 🌊 & the biggest swimming pool 🏊‍♂️🏊‍♀️ in Terengganu  😍🤩 Ohh wow‼️

 

Of course she had enjoyed her comfy stay 😴 in the premier room with sea view of RWK🏢🏝🏖

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 highly recommended 👆 this resort 🏢🏝🏖 especially for a family weekend getaway with the kids🧒👦👧🧑 or even a school trip 

Why❓⁉️

Definitely an educational stay for the kids🧒👦👧🧑to learn about the turtle 🐢conservation 💚 in Terengganu, Malaysia 🇲🇾 Refer below captures from SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 friends👭’ kids 👦🧑 participation

Being a high⬆️-trafficked area, RWK 🏢🏝🏖 has its own turtle 🐢 conservation programme in place to ensure the safety of both the turtles 🐢🐢 & their eggs🥚🥚

2018-09-23 09.46.05.jpg

Yes✅ , RWK 🏢🏝🏖 ‘s own turtles 🐢🐢 hatchery 🥚🥚

Regular cleanings (Including annual beach 🏝🏖 cleanupsss 😀) are done to ensure the beach 🏝🏖 is safe for both turtle landings 🐢🐢 & its guests’  👭👬👫 activities 👍🏻💪🏻

Bravo‼️ 👏🙌 RWK 🏢🏝🏖 always continue working with the Terengganu Department of Fisheries 🐟🐟 to seek official protection for its beach 🏖🏝 & to certify ✍🏻📜 its guests’  👭👬👫 turtle 🐢 conservation 💚 programme

She  👩🏻 was informed by the RWK’s turtle conservation officer named Mr Ragu 👨🏽 that turtles 🐢🐢 usually arrive on Terengganu beaches 🏝🏖 from May to Sept, mainly consisting of the common Green Turtle 🐢 aka Chelonia Mydas & the occasionally rare Hawksbill Turtle 🐢 aka Eretmochelys Imbricate. Returning by instinct to the very area that they were hatched🥚🥚🐢🐢, the 7.6km beach 🏝🏖 at RWK 🏢🏝🏖 is 1️⃣ of these hallowed places

Despite turtles 🐢🐢 watching 👀, this RWGğŸ¢ğŸžğŸš â€™s turtles 🐢🐢 conservation 💚 efforts @ RWK 🏢🏝🏖 also supported by various of its guests’  👭👬👫 activities,

i. Turtle 🐢 Eggs 🥚🥚 Planting

A proper briefing 🗣️👥👥👥 will be provided with the Dos ✅ & Don’ts ❌, including a demostration by the resort’s turtles 🐢🐢 rangers

Bravo‼️ This is important to ensure all the precious turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚🥚are all appropriately planted by RWK 🏢🏝🏖 ‘s guests 👭👬👫 accordingly

 

Some of the guidance are,

  • Must wear gloves before holding the eggs 🥚🥚
  • Dig the hole with enough depth for eggs 🥚🥚 planting (It’s advisable to have between 6️⃣️ to 🔟 eggs🥚🥚in each planting nest)
  • Once hold the egg🥚, not to turn the egg 🥚in any directions
  • Put the egg 🥚slowly on the ground of the hole prepared for turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚🥚planting
  • Then, covered the sand, fence up & labelled with date of egg🥚planting

2018-09-23 10.10.06

For about 3️⃣ months, the eggs🥚🥚will lay incubating in the sand, only for the hatchlings 🐢🐢 to emerge during a full moon 🌕 & speed their way to the ocean 🌊

In the years to come, many will return 🐢🐢 to the very same beach 🏖🏝, completing the cycle of life. Of course RWK 🏢🏝🏖 always will be there waiting to welcome them back 🐢🐢🏝🏖🥚🥚

ii. Turtles hatchling releasing🥚🥚🐢🐢 to the ocean 🌊

When SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has holded up a baby turtle 🐢 , she felt touched in her heart ❤️ as only 1️⃣ to ️3️⃣️ in 1️⃣️k baby turtles 🐢🐢 will live long enough after releasing to ocean  🌊

Ohh….What❓⁉️

She has blessed kiss 😘 the baby turtle ~ Little Sienny 🐢 ~ to have a safe growing up journey to the sea 🌊

 

It’s advised to let the baby turtles 🐢🐢 to crawling on their own at least short distance from the beach 🏝🏖  to the sea 🌊 , it forms part of their growing journey

 

iii. Coconut tree planting 🌴🥥

Hmm…Why❓⁉️

Coconut trees 🌴🌴🥥🥥 can live 💯+ years, producing over thousands of coconuts 🥥🥥 in it’s lifetimeo‼️ Wow‼️ 😲🤪

2018-09-23 11.27.02.jpg

Moreover, coconut trees 🌴🌴🥥🥥 help to protect beach from coastal 🌊 erosion

Stay @ Hotel Seri Malaysia Kuala Terengganu ğŸ‡²ğŸ‡¾

After reading 📖 SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻’s earlier sharing about the road less travelled in Terengganu, Malaysia 🇲🇾

 

This round, she is gonna sharing her stay at Hotel Seri Malaysia Kuala Terengganu 🏢, some nearby attractions 📍📍& snacks 😋🤤 within walking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️distance & below 3️⃣0️⃣mins drive 🚗🚙

~ Discover Malaysia 🇲🇾 Through Hotel Seri Malaysia 🏢 ~

Yes✅, it’s 1️⃣ of the largest local hotel 🏢 chain in Malaysia 🇲🇾 with 21 hotels strategically located 📍in most states within Malaysia 🇲🇾 (except Kelantan & Sabah) currently 🤗

Yeah‼️ She was welcome 🙏🏻 with the hotel mascot named ~ “Abang SEM” aka Brother SEM 💁🏽‍♂️

Guess what❓⁉️

Inside the mascot 💁🏽‍♂️ is the Chef Cook 👨🏽‍🍳 of this hotel 🏢, really enjoyed 😋🤤 his hotel dishes especially the Glutinuous Rice 🍚 with Tongkol fish curry 🍛 as well as the Tom Yum steamboat dinner 🥘 during her stay

She 👩🏻 was told during her check-in 🔑 with her media friends 👫👭👬 that this hotel 🏢 is 1️⃣ of the oldest within the chain of Hotel Seri Malaysia🏢

From her recent stay 🛌🚿🚽 for 3️⃣ nights, she is highly recommended 👍🏻👆🏻 this hotel 🏢 to all of you gonna pay Beautiful Terengganu a visit soon 😍🤩

A market where the Terengganu locals 👭👬👫will drop by for wet market shopping, groceries, daily home supplies as well as tourists for some souvenirs ğŸ›’ğŸ›ğŸŽ

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

You will spot turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚 too at the wet market area. SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 was surprise 😱 & would advise not ❌ to purchase any to protect this endangered species ~ turtle 🐢

IMG_3636IMG_3639

Sigh 😔 …She was told that it’s ❌ not explicitly forbidden to sell & eat turtle eggs in Terengganu because it’s the tradition of this state to consume turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚 Also the lack of a national ban currently where the sale of turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚 come from another state/ international are permitted. It was tough to differentiate turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚 by place of origin, hence enforcement really challenging

If possible, do plan a cruise here to view the beautiful 😍🤩 crystal mosque 🕌 within this park

IMG_3457.jpg

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has missed her cruise 🚢 during her 1️⃣st visit due to tight travel schedule 🗒 (Only from on the road passing & spotted it, then this capture 📸 )

Terengganu International Squid Jigging Festival ğŸ‡²ğŸ‡¾

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 about her recent 1️⃣st experience of squid 🦑🦑 jigging aka candat sotong in Malaysia’s 🇲🇾 national language

Where❓⁉️

It’s at Terengganu state of Malaysia 🇲🇾 ~ Beautiful Terengganu ~ 😍🤩

It was an exclusive media invitation 📩📧💌 from Tourism Malaysia 🇲🇾 to join its recreation club annual family trip 🤗😊

IMG_3068.jpg

Hmm…What’s squid 🦑🦑 jigging ğŸŽ£â“â‰ï¸

This was exactly the 1️⃣st question ❓she had in her mind 💭 when she 1️⃣st read the invitation 📩📧💌 received 🤔

Ohh…SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 with her so called “fisher-woman” look 😉 (she loves her orange Malaysia batiksarong) for this festival ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ participation, pretty 😍 right❓⁉️

IMG_3529.jpg

Hmm…She was told it’s a technique of catching squid ğŸŽ£ğŸ¦‘ğŸ¦‘ by using a colorful artificial bait. Ohh ya…The colorful artificial baits actually glow in the dark, that’s how the squid 🦑🦑 will then easily got attracted to. When the bait is being dropped down & sank to the bottom of the sea 🌊 bed, a rope will then raise up. Then, advisable to keep both pull up ⬆️ & pull down ⬇️ the rope as this helps to attract the attention of the squid 🦑 🦑

She yet to touch the bait herself during her recent jigging ğŸŽ£ participation, so googled 👩🏻‍💻🌐 to share how colourful the baits are 😀

Ohh…Why❓⁉️ Do read 📖 on to find out ya 😉

Guess what❓⁉️

This candat sotong ğŸŽ£ğŸ¦‘ğŸ¦‘ is also the daily activity of many local people 👫👭👬 or fishermen 🚤🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ in Terengganu to earn a living 💰 However, it has been being commercialised by the Tourism Terengganu since 1991 as 1️⃣ of the Terengganu’s tourism attractions📍

Curious 🤔 when to enjoy this squid jiggingğŸŽ£ğŸ¦‘ğŸ¦‘â“â‰ï¸

This jigging ğŸŽ£ activity is seasonal & usually around the last week of March till July each year i.e. when the monsoon season ends / monsoon winds 🌬💨🌊 towards the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia 🇲🇾 The appropriate time 🕔 to be out at sea for it would be advisable between 5️⃣pm to 6️⃣am. At night 🌃🌌, lightings 💡💡from the boats 🚤🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️ are extremely important to catch the attention of the squid 🦑🦑 & to attract them to swim 🦑🦑 towards the boat 🚤🚣🏻‍♂️🚣🏻‍♀️

IMG_3530.jpg

So, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has witnessed the official launch ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ of this 2018 Terengganu International Squid 🦑🦑 Jigging ğŸŽ£ Festival

Interestingly, the launch ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ was quite special by using some fake squid 🦑🦑 for the special guest, Menteri Besar Terengganu👨🏾‍💼~ Yang Amat Berhormat Dato’ Seri Haji Ahmad Razif bin Abdul Rahman to demonstrate to all the participants on how to candat sotong (or the right way)Â ğŸŽ£ğŸ¦‘ğŸ¦‘Â that evening 🏙

After the launch ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ, she was then being arranged to be in a boat 🚤 with 8️⃣ members 👭👬👬👬 (i.e. the max legal no. of pax in the fishing boat 🚤 as listed on its fishing license 📋). Most of the boats 🚤🚤 were with late departure due to the unfavourable weather 🌦☁️🌫 & boats 🚤🚤 traffic jam that evening 🏙 from Batin Village Jetty ⚓️

IMG_3567IMG_3583

For this 2018 fetsival ğŸŽ‰ğŸŽŠ, there were approximately of total 220 participants 👫👭👬 including media members & all being allocated into 22 boats 🚤🚤 Wow‼️ A big crowd‼️😲 That’s why the jetty ⚓️ was experiencing boats 🚤🚤 traffic jam to anchor & pick up all the participants 👬👭👫

IMG_3562.jpg

Yeah‼️ Flag off 🇲🇾

Then, the boats 🚤 were sailing towards the candat sotong ğŸŽ£ğŸ¦‘ğŸ¦‘ location at Marang which supposedly for another 1.5 hours sail 🚤🌊 journey. Most of the time, long hours are required i.e. at least 6️⃣ hours & more in the middle of the sea 🌊🌊

So, if your trip with some females members 👭👭👭, would advise to hire a bigger boat 🛥 which with proper shower 🚿 & toilet 🚽 facilities

Hmm…She was well taken care by her travel mates 👭👫👬 to consume a piece of the motion sickness pill 💊 before the boat trip ğŸš¤ğŸŽ£ğŸ¦‘ğŸ¦‘ This is a precaution to avoid suffering seasickness 😰🌊 (unstable headache, nausea etc.) especially when the boat 🚤 anchor down ⚓️ for the squid jigging ğŸŽ£ğŸ¦‘ğŸ¦‘ location 📍 & coupled with sea waves 🌊🌊 & boating boats 🚤 in the middle of the ocean 🌊

IMG_3503.jpg

Sigh…Quite disappointing for a 1️⃣st timer like her. The luck 🍀 was not really with her & her boat mates 👭👬👬👬 that evening🏙, the weather was unfavourable ☁️🌦🌫 It was with strong sea waves 🌊🌊 especially when the boat 🚤 was sailing ventured towards the middle of the ocean 🌊 to reach to Marang, the squid jigging ğŸŽ£ğŸ¦‘ğŸ¦‘ location📍

However, personally she 👩🏻 thinks what’s more important was the experience gained. She respect the decision made by the boat 🚤 captain 👨‍✈️ of not ventured further towards the strong sea waves 🌊🌊 that night 🌃🌌 Safety of all boat mates 👭👬👬👬 more important & there is always a next time 🤗☺️

~ Everything happens for a reason ~

There were 3️⃣ boats 🚤 🚤 🚤 that unable to enjoy the squid 🦑🦑 jigging ğŸŽ£ fun due to the strong sea waves 🌊🌊 that night 🌃🌌

Do enjoy a full video clip ğŸ“¹ğŸŽ¥ captured from her 1️⃣st squid 🦑🦑 jigging ğŸŽ£ participation, the strong sea waves 🌊🌊 was being captured too 😌

Some tips shared by her travel mates 👭👬👫 learnt from their successful squid 🦑🦑 jigging ğŸŽ£ participations in this recent trip to avoid seasickness 😰🌊

  1. Consume motion sickness pill 💊 at least 1️⃣ or 2️⃣ hours before boat departure 🚤🚣🏻‍♀️🚣🏻‍♂️
  2. Before the boat departure 🚤🚣🏻‍♂️🚣🏻‍♀️, advisable to avoid heavy meal🍽🍴, spicy 🌶 / oily foods etc.
  3. While on board in the boat🚤, do avoid seating at the boat engine diesel smoke 💨 area (usually the back of the boat)
  4. During the boat sailing 🚤🌊 or anchor ⚓️ moment, do avoid your eye contact 👀 or eye concentrating 👁 to the sea waves 🌊🌊 Do always have your eyes 👀👁 look far ahead
  5. If starting to feel dizzy 😵/ discomfort 😰🌊, do lye down & try to sleep 😴💤 if possible
  6. If feel like to vomit 🤢🤮 / throw out 😰🌊, just do it, no need to feel shy ☺️

If you are interested, do check out for a boat 🚤 hire which depending on the boat size, the facilities provided e.g. with jigging ğŸŽ£ equipment available, shower 🚿 cum toilet 🚽 facilities, kitchen facilities, meals 🍽🍴etc.

Ohh ya…She 👩🏻 was told usually the dinner 🍴 🍽 will be prepared by the boat 🚤 owner 👨‍✈️upon your boat 🚤 hire. The dinner menu 🍽 of course the fresh squid 🦑🦑 from the ocean 🌊 as main dish for the night 🌃🌌

Hmm…Even though herself & her boat mates 👭👬👬👬 weren’t able to sail 🚤🌊 to Marang for the night 🌃🌌 & enjoyed the supposedly squid 🦑🦑 jigging ğŸŽ£ fun…😌🙃

Guess what❓⁉️

Still got chance to enjoy the big squid 🦑🦑…No should say huge squid 🦑🦑 BBQ 🔥 feast as dinner 🍽🍴😋🤤

Frankly, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is not really a squid 🦑🦑 lover 😘💗 (as you all know from her food blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 here, she loves prawns 😘🦐🦐), however that night 🌃🌌 she truly enjoyed very much the BBQ squid feast 🔥🦑🦑🍽🍴

IMG_3614.jpg

The local people 👭👬👫 has recommended her to taste the BBQ squid 🔥🦑🦑 with the special homemade spicy 🌶 sauce prepared, however she didn’t ❌ dip it at all. She prefers the natural sweetness from the fresh squid 🦑🦑 itself with some salty taste from the sea 🌊 water 💦 💧 So so tasty delicious 😋🤤

She really missed the superb yummy 😋🤤 taste of the huge fresh squid while blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 her experience here though…Ha…Ha…Hungry…hungry…😋😋

Do enjoy a short clip ğŸ“¹ğŸŽ¥ captured by her to share her huge squid BBQ 🔥 🦑🦑🍽🍴 feast. Hmm…Just don’t get hungry 😋🤤 while watching this clip ğŸ“¹ğŸŽ¥ ya 😝😜

Will definitely be back for this squid 🦑🦑 jigging ğŸŽ£ againâ€¼ï¸ğŸ˜ƒğŸ˜Ž
