There are lemongrass, butterfly 🦋 pea, ginger, peppermint, Roselle, Mulberry 🍒 etc. 😋🤤

Personally, she loves ❤️ the butterfly 🦋 tea 🍵 the most, not just because of its purple 💜 colour, but its taste too 😘

IMG-20180419-WA0010.jpg

Hmm…So sad ğŸ˜ž that she forgot to get a packet 🛒🛍 of butterfly 🦋 tea 🍵 home 🏡 😭

4 The Potting Shed

Yeah‼️ “Green 💚 Fingers” is a myth 🙃

As you all are aware, different plants 🌱🌿require a different admixture of the planting media, then the plants will glow & blossom, green 💚 fingers or not 😊

Some of the herbs planting 🌱🌿within the garden,

Ohh ya…She loves ❤️ the interactive 🗣👥👤👥session at this plot where she got an enjoyable learning & hands on experience in planting 🌱🌿

Guess what❓⁉️

This was her 1️⃣st time travelling ğŸŽ’ğŸ•¶ğŸ§¢ğŸ‘Ÿ with so so many tour guides 👫👭👬, nice meeting all & really appreciate the great friendships 🤝 gained from this trip 😃

Negeri Sembilan is not just with widely known Port Dickson beach 🏖🏝 , she has explored some hidden gems ğŸ’ŽğŸ’Ž during her recent trip ğŸ˜ğŸ˜Ž

Ohh…Where & what❓⁉️

1️⃣ of the gems ğŸ’ŽğŸ’Ž recently discovered by her is Kenaboi State Park (FKA Taman Alam Liar Negeri) ğŸžğŸŒ³ğŸŒ³

Wow‼️ Awesome coincident‼️😁

Guess what❓⁉️

She has just read 👓 about it from The Sun Daily ğŸ—žğŸ“° in March & she has then visited it in April 😉

http://www.thesundaily.my/news/2018/03/13/hidden-gem-jelebu

Photo 04-05-2018, 7 06 44 PM.jpg

This park ğŸž is located 📍in the Kenaboi Forest Reserve🌳🌳, Jelebu which constitutes Hill Dipterocarp Forest. It overlooks the rainforest 🌳🌳 landscape, adjoining the Titiwangsa mountain ⛰ range in Pahang at north, as well as the borders of states Pahang & Selangor 😊

Photo 04-05-2018, 7 07 31 PM.jpg

If you are 1️⃣ of the many nature lovers 💚💚, you will enjoy your time to experience this unspoilt greenery ğŸžğŸŒ³ğŸŒ³ of Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan 🇲🇾

Your next holiday destination for sure‼️😄

It’s with limited network reception📶, so you will enjoy a peaceful & private me time during your visit. A perfect place to hide from the constant hustle & bustle city 🌆🏙 lifestyle as well as without any phone calls ğŸ“žâ˜Žï¸ğŸ“±disturbance 😀

Ohh ya…So what’s the exciting bit of this place❓⁉️

Photo 18-04-2018, 7 55 31 PM.jpg

She truly enjoyed the river 💦💧 trekking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️, tubing at Kenaboi river 💦💧, night 🌃🌌 jungle 🌳🌳 walk 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️& a camping 🏕🏕 overnight here

Hmm…How to access 📍to this state park ğŸžâ“â‰ï¸

This park ğŸž has began to be discovered in 1990 by 4×4 extreme sport activities through the Jemaloi Valley ğŸž of Negeri Sembilan 🇲🇾

True enough, she has transferred to ride on 4×4 after a coach 🚌 ride with her friends 👫👭👬 to get through the bumpy & potholes road 🛣& then arrived at the base camp site 🏕🏕

Dropped off luggages ğŸŽ’ğŸ’¼ğŸ‘œ at tent ⛺️ & captured 📸 a group photo 1️⃣st before the river 💦💧trekking 🚶🏻‍♂️🚶🏻‍♀️

Frankly, it’s quite a challenging 🙃 river 💦💧trekking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️ i.e. hiking through the streams to reach to Jeram Berungut ğŸž

It’s definitely worth your sweatsss 💦💦 as you will be amazed with breathtaking 🤩😍 views of the river 💦💧canyons as well as cool & crystal clear waters as the reward 😃

Since the river 💦💧trekking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️was started at late noon 🔅& due to unfavourable weather 🌦🌧, she has yet ❌ to reach & view the well known approximately 93m high Lata Kijang waterfall with all her friends👭👬👫 Nevermind, will keep this in her travel bucket list then 😆

After the river 💦💧trekking🚶🏻‍♂️🚶🏻‍♀️, she has continued with tubing at the Kenaboi river 💦💧

Just so so relaxing 😌 & not ❌ to be missed ya!! You will feel your mind, body & soul just flow naturally & freely down the river. Amazing!!

Ha…Ha…Her tubing journey was being captured 📸 by the officer of Forestry Department, Negeri Sembilan 😅😂🤣

It was really an awesome ğŸ˜ŽğŸ‘ğŸ» day to get close with green 💚💚 nature‼️😃 Do enjoy a video clip ğŸ“¹ğŸŽ¥ captured by her for sharing here,

A cosy comfy night 🌃🌃 at camp ⛺️🏕 stay, not to worry, there are proper shower 🚿 & washroom 🚽

Photo 04-05-2018, 7 08 35 PM.jpg

Hmm…The uniqueness of this park ğŸž includes its rich variety of floral 🌳🌲🌱🌿 cum plants e.g. orchids herbs, ferns, palm trees etc., the abundant waterfalls of the Kering River 💦💧 i.e. the tributary of the Kenaboi River 💦💧which often being associated with the local believed myth of the injured deer 🦌 falling into the waterfall. Yes ✅, hence the name of the waterfalls of Lata Kijang Waterfalls 😀

There are approximately 3️⃣ indigenous people villages within this park & namely as Tohor Village, London Village & Nap Village. However, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has yet ❌ to visit to any of these villages during her recent short trip to this park ğŸž

So, what are you waiting for❓⁉️

Let’s plan for a green 💚💚 getaway with aims to destress 😌 with a great change of green 💚scenery & fresh air 🌬You will definitely recharged‼️😃

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 😉

bait.jpg

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 🌊🌊

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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📍

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 wanna has a dating ğŸ‘©ğŸ»ğŸŽ£ğŸ¦‘ğŸ¦‘ with the squid again ya 😁

Paragliding Jerai

Paragliding service is now available at Mount Jerai⛰ of Kedah, Malaysia 🇲🇾

It costs RM250/ pax including photos📸/ videosğŸ“¹ğŸŽ¥, pick up & off road shuttle service 🚐 to the take off point

However, please note that the risk of flying with the pilot 👨‍✈️ is at your own, the fee paid is without ❌ any life insurance coverage while you signed up for this extreme activity

29467967_1250442578423661_2782370708741685248_n

The view from take off point was nice 😍 while SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 was waiting for her turn (this photo📸refers). However, she has not ❌ personally tried the paragliding services after 2.5 hours of waiting at take off point😌

It was due to the miscommunication between Tourism Kedah & Gunung Jerai Paragliding Park Official team on the arrangement for this writers experience visit. Ended up a total of 8️⃣ writers, only 2️⃣ writers got to experience it 😭😭 Truly disappointing & sadÂ ğŸ˜žğŸ˜¢Â for the rest of us after a long wait 😔
