Heritage historical tour @ Hulu Selangor , Malaysia

Day 1

It was a raining day 🌧☔ with sharp departure from Matic KL to Serendah @ 7.40am, the name Serendah in Malaysia’s national language ~ Bahasa Malaysia reflects that this area is located at a low level

Went straight to Macau street, Serendah for breakfast. This is the only Macao street that remains now from the total 5⃣ Macao streets in the world 🌎 ie. Kuala Lumpur, Serendah, Malacca, Penang & Singapore. This street will be a food street of Serendah in the future as shared by Mr Andy Pah during lunch of that day

.

Highly recommended the tea egg dessert served at Kedai Kopi Yee Kee. The egg well boiled in sweet tea soup, yum yum 😋👍🏻 SiennyLovesDrawing & her friend were lucky to enjoy this well known dessert @ 9am. It normally ready to serve around 10am. She loves this hot dessert as tasted it for the 1st time. A must try ya 😀 They were sharing a table with a retired couple, had a good chat with them, a happy breakfast

Address📍: https://maps.app.goo.gl/vrZJbeZV4oRdiZJz9

Then, visited the Hock Leng Keng Temple 双文䞹犏靈宫 which founded in 1869. It’s a 150 years old Taoism temple with a museum to visit to learn the history of this temple & Serendah. It used to be a medical temple for the village residents, especially kids here. SiennyLovesDrawing got impressed by how well this temple is being maintained till now

.

Met officials, Mr Andy Pah from Balairaya Serendah & Mr Lee, the acting president of Hokkien Association. Listened to their explanation about this old temple history, as well as Serendah history

Address📍: https://maps.app.goo.gl/uT7XprLrkTp3fjFE9

Then, group photos & enjoyed hosting tasty yummy lunch & chit chat together with the Hokkien Association members @ Restaurant 218

During the lunch, Mr Andy Pah informed that the Temple Street of Serendah actually with 7⃣ temples & some with over 100 years. That’s really full of historical values. He also shared about the ongoing efforts of developing Serendah as a lifestyle tourism destination. It will be developing as a tourist park so each visitor here can spend at least 2 hours

Address📍: https://maps.app.goo.gl/XggiK8ptQhw8AZRY9

Next @ llmio Cafe 叀毛人茶逐宀 to meet ADUN KKB Madam Lee Kee Hiong & cafe owner, Ms Shu Xuan

Once stepped in, personally she loves the dining & tea time vibes in this cafe, especially love the antiques collections exhibited here

The cafe founder actually studied in Taiwan & decided to be back to her hometown & started this cafe & also a homestay 欢喜居 ☕🏘

Enjoyed a juicy story telling session about KKB from Ms Shu Xuan & started the heritage walk with her. SiennyLovesDrawing also personally suggested to her to inform the relevant authorized person of Galeri Sejarah KKB to consider adding all the gallery info exhibited in English so foreign visitors will have a chance to read & understand the KKB history from this gallery. Many foreign travellers love to visit the museum of a local place on a travel journey, so it’s important for this gallery to add in the English version of all exhibited information

She really enjoyed the sweet tom yam with great 👍🏻 coconut fragrance of this prawn dish, absolutely tasty each sip of the soup while chewing on the fresh prawn 🊐😋👍🏻 If you’re not a spicy fan, this dish is not very spicy with the well blend of coconut sweetness

Ohh my…Almost everyone on the table loves the beer stout chicken wing, it was well deep fry, not oily at all & well coated with beer stout, so delicious tasty to enjoy every bite of it

Honestly she can just none stop eating the salted egg pumpkin, it’s so addictive tasty 😋🀀 Moreover she is a salted egg lover

During her visit, she had a good chat with the orchids care worker & understood that the yellow orchids are precious one as not many, compared to those white & purple ones. It’s quite easy to take care the plants by spraying water few times a week

Last stop at Seven Wells for photos & heading back to KL, home sweet home 🏡 to conclude this 2⃣D1⃣N trip at Hulu Selangor, Malaysia 🇲🇟. It’s also known as Perigi Tujuh Serendah. It’s a popular tourist spot in Serendah & it was built to resist floods in Serendah. To SiennyLovesDrawing personally, this is an important heritage spot to visit to learn more about Serendah history & the advancement of technology at that time for flood preventing

However, during this visit, she is sad to see the rubbish & not well taken care of this place. Special thanks to 1 of her travelmate, Ms MC who have shared the before photo captured from her visit in Aug 2020 that the Seven Wells were all functioning with cleaner surrounding at that time

At present, there are 2 wells that no longer with water 💊 Sigh…She wishes the relevant authorities can actually take some appropriate action to well maintain this beautiful site as Malaysia is slowly resuming tourism activities at the moment. Also to have all Seven Wells all functioning well again as its purpose of preventing unpredictable flood in the future

Address📍: https://maps.app.goo.gl/6HTCgm2Mus5KNdHh9

This trip, she has not visit to Alor Lempah aka Ampang Pecah. It’s a picnic 🧺 site is just like a mini “Niagara Falls” in Malaysia 🇲🇟, no need to fly 🛫 to USA 🇺🇲 ya 😁

Refired Not Retired Day To Live Life To The Fullest

Updated 6 March 2022, 12pm

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has recently read about how to celebrating Refired, Not Retired Day, 1st March annually, it’s as simple as reevaluating any of your ideas (If yet to have, can start exploring now 😃) of what it means to you to be retired. What have you got planned for the years after you retire or even retire early❓⁉

Refired Not Retired Day is dedicated to all those people who have retired already OR about to get retired. During retirement period of life, live your life to the fullest, yes, just enjoy your life & make the most of these retirement years by doing things that you always wanted to do, as you finally got time to do all the things that you love to do. Read more via 🌐 https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/refired-not-retired-day/

Hmm…SiennyLovesDrawing actually wishes to retire early, yes ✅, since she has graduated & starting to work 👩🏻‍💻, this is a life goal 🎯 that she is working on. It means good financial habits count, be discipline in your budget set, not wasting money unnecessarily etc. Some of her tips are reduce eating out, no unnecessarily phone upgrades, unnecessarily clothing & apparel shopping, not to opt for extended warranties & not to fall into emotional impulse shopping etc.

“Planning to retire? Before you do find your hidden passion, do the thing that you have always wanted to do.” ~ By Catherine Pulsifer

Apart from the major concern ie. Enough financial to support early retirement, the rule of thumb widely recognised is only withdraw 4% from retirement savings each year

Personally to her, enough meant differently by each retirees, if you can be living on a lower budget that you’re comfortably adapting to, without any luxury elements, then your “enough” for early retirement surely more achievable, as compared to those that wish to enjoy a more luxury comfortable retirement life. So, a honest & reality self reflect is required to consider your retirement lifestyle, current or long term healthcare needs, living downsizing etc. ya 💪🏻🙌🏻👍🏻

The important factor that drives her to achieving early retirement is what she is gonna do to fill her time after retire. Once retired, it means literally you have extra hours of 9 to 5 on your own, no need answering to many bosses, hurray‌ She knows herself well that she needs to keep her time occupied, she just can’t be doing nothing for a long time, she just can’t, lol 😆

Frankly, initially when she wishes to retire early, so she can backpacking around the world 🎒🌎, however with the global health pandemic now, she needs to pen down what she is gonna do instead before her long backpacking journey then

Let’s start to craft out an actual plan for your post-retirement years OR plan a fun bucket list that you can happily tick off after each exciting completion during your retirement

It’s just a new 🆕 beginning after your retirement, enjoy new 🆕 life for your own self. It’s a 2nd chance for all retirees to live life to its fullest to stay happy vital

In this sharing, SiennyLivesDrawing 👩🏻 is gonna sharing some pointers/ ideas of what to do to fill your time during retirement. It’s important to plan well to enjoy the max benefits of an early retirement 😃

What’s your answers to these questions❓⁉

  • When you were a child, what did you love most? Isn’t it now the time that each of us remembered the simple joy of being a child?
  • Anything you wished you would have done? Not done?
  • Who matters to you?
  • If money were not a problem, what would you be doing now?
  • If tomorrow is your last day in life, will you have any regrets?
