The 8 Wonders of Johor!

Still remember 💭 Johor state, Malaysia 🇲🇾 is the 1️⃣st state that SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 received an exclusive 1st media invitation from Tourism Johor in the beginning of her lifestyle blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝journey, then subsequently a few more. A special thank you 🙏🏻& great appreciation for the trust🤝

Hmm…Where are the 8️⃣ wonders recently visited by SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 at Johor ~ the Southern gateway into Malaysia 🇲🇾 ❓⁉️

(i) Zeromile aka Kilometre Zero0️⃣

What’s it meant for❓⁉️

It’s also written as KM0️⃣ i.e. a particular location📍usually a country’s capital city 🌆🏙 from which the distances are traditionally measured🔢 Historically, they were markers📍where drivers 🚗🚕🚙🚌🚚🚐 could set their odometers to follow the directions in the early days😄

For West Malaysia 🇲🇾, this monument 0️⃣ is located right in front of the Johor Bahru General Post Office 📮 at Jalan Ibrahim Sultan. It’s 1️⃣ of the rare cases where the zeromile 0️⃣ is not located at the country’s capital city🤗

It has been designated as the JB city’s starting point 0️⃣ since 1974

Address📍: Right in front of the Johor Bahru General Post Office📮, Jalan Ibrahim Sultan, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor, West Malaysia

(ii) Sultan Ismail Building 🏢

This is Malaysia 🇲🇾’s 1️⃣st experiential Parliament 🏢 & open to the public 😄

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is really impressed 😍🤩 & truly appreciate the different architectural designs of this building 🏢 from her recent 1️⃣st visit. The architecture of this building is uniquely Johor-Malay & yet infused with a strong Moorish-Andalusian elements to create a unique style 👍🏻👏🏻 This symbolises the balance of authority & a family friendly at Johor state of Malaysia 🇲🇾

  • The jewel / diamond 💎 (Jauhar in Arabic) ~ where name of Johor has derived
  • The pineapple 🍍 & black pepper ~ Johor’s economic prosperity
  • The pineapple 🍍 skylight ~ openness & transparency
  • Newell knobs with stylised black pepper vines ~ Johor’s past economic prosperity
  • Traditional Malay carving & abstract designs
