SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 had an awesome 🤩 learning experience of handmaking 👐🏻🙌🏻 a colourful 🌈 basket with rattan at the booth of Malaysia 🇲🇾 Handicraft Development Corporation ~ N9️⃣ branch 😀

4) Providing a platform 🗣👥👤👥 to identify issues & challenges in hampering productivity growth 📈

She 👩🏻 has learnt a lot from the forum 🗣👥👤👥 which moderated by YBhg Dato’ K Thangavelu ~ “Challenges & Opportunities for Tourism in Negeri Sembilan” with panelists from Tourism Malaysia, N9️⃣ Economic Planning unit (EPU), MPS, MITA’ s Chinese Individual Market & MITA’s Incentive group

Some of the challenges faced to continue developing N9️⃣ as a greater 👍🏻 tourist destination📍among both local & foreign tourists👭👫👬 including low ⬇️ awareness of its tourist spots📍📍to visit, having enough multi-language talented tourist guides 👫👬👭especially to service the increasing trend of China 🇨🇳 tourists 👭👫👬, greater 👍🏻 transportation infrastructure 🚊🚖🚞🚌 in place to receiving greater ⬆️ no. of tourists 👭👬👫 to N9️⃣ etc.

5) Having engagement opportunities on strategic planning, best management practices & collaboration with government agencies, industry & community leaders 👭👬👫

6) Receiving the latest update on strategies by Local Tourism Authorities i.e. Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia (MOTAC), MPS, Tourism Productivity Nexus, MPC etc. 👍🏻

7) Implementing Tourism Product Audit practices

The choice of tourist destinations📍 are both Seremban & Port Dickson (PD) of N9️⃣, West Malaysia 🇲🇾 Hmm…Why N9️⃣❓⁉️

“It’s because N9️⃣ located📍in between South states of West Malaysia 🇲🇾 to Kuala Lumpur (KL) 🌆🌃 & both local & foreign tourists 👫👭👬 will passing by whenever travelling on the road 🚗🚕🚌🚐 from South, however most of the time missing it by not stopping by to learn more & experiencing its Adat Perpatih cultures” said Mr Uzaidi Udanis 👨🏽‍💼, the President of MITA & Chairman of the Tourism Productivity Nexus during the event

This actually aligns with the low ⬇️ awareness of its exciting places to visit in N9️⃣ as shared during the forum 🗣👥👤👥 , refer item 4 above

Updated @ 10.5.2018 9am

So many matters happened since 6 May when SiennyLovesDrawing has rushed back from her working tripsss to attend 2 friends’ wedding ceremonies supposedly (meant to be a surprise to both of her friends). However, early morning of 6 May, received a phone call that her big uncle (mama’s family) has passed away

Sigh…Whole family members then rushed to Pahang to be with the big uncle’s family, helped for the wake preparation & attendance till 8 May. She really missed this big uncle so much as since young, he always bought him books & stationeries whenever he came to KL to visiting her family back then.

May you rest in peace, “dua gu” (big uncle in Hokkien dialect)

Then, rushed back to KL as whole family went for #GE14 #509 as a responsible Malaysians
