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

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

Refired Not Retired Day To Live Life To The Fullest

Updated 6 March 2022, 12pm

SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» 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 đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’», 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 đŸ’ȘđŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ»đŸ‘đŸ»

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 đŸ‘©đŸ» 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?

A simple, clean yet comfy stay with toiletries available. There is no ❌ iron / hair dryer available in the hotel room 🛌

However, no wifi âŒđŸ“¶ network detection in the hotel room, though the wifi password was printed on the hotel room key 🔑 ‘s envelope 😌

Frankly, the hotel rooms are considered quite well maintained đŸ‘ŒđŸ» since it’s an old resort since its establishment in 1995. More of its hotel room types & room information via 🌐 http://www.bukitmerahresort.com.my/laketown-hotel

SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» has joined her other female media friends 👭👭 on a boat đŸš€ to the island 🌮🏝

Yeah!‌ Let’s enjoy picking & eating the rambutan đŸ˜‹đŸ€€ at this island 🌮🏝

National Park Pahang, Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ

Yeah‌ SiennyLovesDrawingÂ đŸ‘©đŸ»Â has recently travelled to Taman Negara 🌳🌳 (aka National Park 🌳🌳 ) Pahang, Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ with MITA business networking trip & enjoyed her back to nature 💚 stay đŸ›ŒđŸšżđŸšœđŸ˜ŽđŸ’€ at Han Rainforest Resort 🏡🏘🏡

She đŸ‘©đŸ» had a privilege to meet & enjoyed an inspiring chat đŸ—ŁđŸ‘€ with the founder of the resort🏡🏘🏡, Mr Kenny Ng đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ(Uncle Kenny) about his nature 💚 💚 passion & resort busines journey

Oppsss…SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» has forgot đŸ€ŠđŸ»â€â™€ïž to have a photo 📾 with Uncle KennyÂ đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’ŒÂ during this trip

He đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ has generously shared an article âœđŸ»đŸ“œwrote by him & SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» would like to share đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“ it here, inclusion of her favourite ❀ emojisss & capturesss 📾 in between 😃😁

đŸ€—Â ~ Sharing is caring as always ~~ đŸ€—

Taman Negara🌳🌳, situated in the heart ❀of Pahang, Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ , is 1ïžâƒŁ of the oldest rainforest 🌳🌳 in the world đŸ—ș🌍 at 130 million years old

Within it, lays a geographical 🌍 wonder of permanently untouched & protected habitat for flora đŸŒłđŸŒ±đŸŒżđŸŒș & fauna 🩓🐆🐅🐘 to florish to all its glory

As such, this a perfect đŸ‘đŸ» platform for the development of a hub towards the education of conservation of the ecology surrounding Taman Negara & rainforests in general 🌳🌳

We strongly believe that Taman Negara 🌳🌳 has the potential to be a global đŸ—ș🌍 platform for the both Eco & Adventure education tourism centre 😃

My đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ humble beginnings of 30 plus years specialising in tourism at Taman Negara 🌳🌳 & the handling of some 1ïžâƒŁ million over tourists đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź since day 1ïžâƒŁ, has led me đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ to the formation of 2ïžâƒŁ travel agencies (NKS & Han Travel) & a resort 🏡🏘🏡 with the biggest room capacity at Kuala Tahan. We average 30k tourists đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«đŸ‘­ a year & 90% of them are from Europe 🇬🇧 🇼đŸ‡č đŸ‡©đŸ‡Ș 🌍đŸ—ș

It has come to a time, where I đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ feel personally, having been in this trade for 30 odd years, it is time to educate the younger generation đŸ‘§đŸ»đŸ§’đŸ»đŸ‘ŠđŸ»đŸ§‘đŸ» & anyone from all walks of life willing to learn about the conservation 💚 of the ecology & its surroundings

We at Han Travel, have formed 2ïžâƒŁ new 🆕 arms in our corporation to execute the upcoming programs called Eco Adventure Tourism 💚💚

This will be encased with the educational arm named the Eco Educational Tourism, headed by Mr Frank Kee & his team đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž & in support đŸ’ȘđŸ» with the activities provided by the Adventure Management Tourism headed by Mr Kevin Bateman & his team đŸ™‹đŸœâ€â™‚ïžđŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïž

Just 1ïžâƒŁ of our examples for the educational program is the re-planting of bamboo 🎋🎍or specific trees 🌳🌳 by badly eroded areas in the effort to prevent further damage to the riversides 💩💧

This is just an example of what we would provide as a CSR initiative 😀

We shall be working closely with the Sultan Ahmad Environmental foundation 💚 in its efforts, participate & uphold its values 😊

Alas, with our planning & preparation, we now realise that we face a huge stumbling block đŸ˜„đŸ˜“ We do not a permanent site to conduct our activities in a conducive & safe manner 😌

Also, current rules & regulations by the government sectors should be looked at & revised to enable operators like us đŸ‘­đŸ‘«đŸ‘Ź to introduce & execute the mutually beneficial conservational education programs 💚💚

 

In the extended period, the efforts will benefit not just the environment 💚🌳💚 but also creating employment opportunity to the locals within its surroundings đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«

IđŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œnow urge, the Pahang state Government, Ministry of Tourism & other related government agencies to assist us in paving the way into this journey with us đŸ™đŸ»đŸ€đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ»

Other Asian countries are already promoting their countrys’ tagline, for example;-

  • Thailand đŸ‡č🇭 ~ Culture tourism
  • Indonesia đŸ‡źđŸ‡© ~ Art tourism
  • Philippines đŸ‡”đŸ‡­ ~ Diving tourism
  • Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ~ Eco & Adventure tourism

All told, our Ministry of Tourism Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ have also set their vision 💭 on Eco Tourism 💚 with its plans & implementation of its program from 2025 & continued focusing till 2050

Han Travel Sdn Bhd, is now at the final phases of the planning & is almost ready to launch our initial program on Eco & Adventure Tourism 💚💚 The launch pad & operations will be at the Han Rainforest Resort, Kuala Tahan 🏡🏘🏡

We hope our efforts will promote & drive the state of Pahang to be model state & also the centre of Ecological 💚 Awareness & the centre for the Education on Rainforest Preservation 🌳🌳

Once again, I đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ believe that our vision is in line with the Pahang State government’s. Developing a fully functioning centre where the education of the ecology 💚 can spread to all walks of life through an experiential process where participants đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź can touch, feel, smell, see and hear the importance of the ecology 💚around us & the threats to its and our existence 😃😁

Thank you đŸ™đŸ»

She đŸ‘©đŸ»Â has recalled that she đŸ‘©đŸ» was amazed đŸ€©đŸ˜ with the Chrismas trees đŸŽ„đŸ’« alike surrounding when her parents đŸ‘ŽđŸ»đŸ‘”đŸ» brought her đŸ‘©đŸ» when she was a kid đŸ‘§đŸ» for fireflies cruising đŸ›¶

Hmm….Quite sad 😔😱 to share that the Christmas trees đŸŽ„đŸ’« effects no longer as great đŸ‘đŸ» as before. The fireflies numbers are declining âŹ‡ïž mainly due to the pollution, degradation of the water 💩💧quality, clearing of river 💩💧 reserves & mangroves đŸ’šđŸŒłđŸŒ±đŸž closer to the fireflies viewing 👀 sites etc. She đŸ‘©đŸ» is proud & happy 😃 that various of conservation 💚 efforts has been made to conserve and rehabilitate their habitat e.g. trees 🌳🌳 planting project with Berembang trees & Nipah trees

She đŸ‘©đŸ» highly recommendsđŸ‘†đŸ»to enjoy the boat đŸ›¶ cruising from Kampung Kuantan because the local community đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź here still using the small wooden boats đŸ›¶ aka sampan in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ’s national language. The boats đŸ›¶đŸ›¶ are steered manually by a boatman đŸ‘šđŸœđŸ‘šđŸœ during the cruising đŸ›¶ There is another venue for fireflies cruising đŸ›¶ named Bukit Belimbing where electronic boats đŸš€ are being used

She đŸ‘©đŸ» was told the fireflies are more impressive đŸ€©đŸ€© if it hasn’t rained đŸŒ§â˜”ïž shortly before & if it is not a full moon 🌕 night 🌃

Basic firefly-watching 👀 etiquette includes,

  • Do not use your torch 🔩 / use flash 📾 to capture photos/ videos đŸ“čđŸŽ„ during the fireflies cruising đŸ›¶ as this will disturb & disrupt the fireflies’ mating
  • Not to talk loudly 🗣 & making unnecessary noise during the cruising đŸ›¶
  • No smoking 🚭 & littering ❌ is allowed during the cruising đŸ›¶
  • Quietly enjoy the nature light đŸ’«đŸ’« show by the fireflies. If you catch the fireflies & brought home 🏡, a fine of RM1ïžâƒŁk will be imposed

She đŸ‘©đŸ» has captured a short clip đŸ“čđŸŽ„ from her fireflies cruisingđŸ›¶, low lighting & only mild nature light đŸ’«đŸ’« show by the fireflies being captured ya 😃😁
