MITA aims to,

1) Showcasingย Tourism Products @ย N9๏ธโƒฃ

2) Networking among tourism players ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌ

3) Maximizing โฌ†๏ธ the productivity of local tourism asset, including locally produced art & craft ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ–Œ

SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปย had an awesome ๐Ÿคฉ learning experience of handmaking ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿปย a colourful ๐ŸŒˆ basket with rattan at the booth ofย Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ Handicraft Development Corporation ~ N9๏ธโƒฃย branch ๐Ÿ˜€

4) Providing a platform ๐Ÿ—ฃ๐Ÿ‘ฅ๐Ÿ‘ค๐Ÿ‘ฅ to identify issues & challenges in hampering productivity growth ๐Ÿ“ˆ

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปย has learnt a lot from the forumย ๐Ÿ—ฃ๐Ÿ‘ฅ๐Ÿ‘ค๐Ÿ‘ฅย which moderated by YBhg Datoโ€™ K Thangavelu ~ โ€œChallenges & Opportunities for Tourism in Negeri Sembilanโ€ with panelists from Tourism Malaysia, N9๏ธโƒฃย Economic Planning unit (EPU), MPS, MITAโ€™ s Chinese Individual Market & MITAโ€™s Incentive group

Some of the challenges faced to continueย developingย N9๏ธโƒฃย as a greater ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป tourist destination๐Ÿ“among both local & foreign tourists๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌ including low โฌ‡๏ธ awareness of its tourist spots๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“to visit, having enough multi-language talented tourist guides ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ญespecially to service the increasing trend of China ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ณ tourists ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌ, greater ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป transportation infrastructure ๐ŸšŠ๐Ÿš–๐Ÿšž๐ŸšŒ in place to receiving greater โฌ†๏ธ no. of tourists ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ toย N9๏ธโƒฃย etc.

7) Implementing Tourism Product Audit practices

The choice of tourist destinations๐Ÿ“ areย both Seremban & Port Dickson (PD) of N9๏ธโƒฃ, West Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พย Hmm…Why N9๏ธโƒฃโ“โ‰๏ธ

“It’s because N9๏ธโƒฃ located๐Ÿ“in between South states of West Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ to Kuala Lumpur (KL) ๐ŸŒ†๐ŸŒƒ & both local & foreign tourists ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ will passing by whenever travelling on the road ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿš•๐ŸšŒ๐Ÿš from South, however most of the time missing it by not โŒ stopping by to learn more & experiencing its Adat Perpatih cultures” said Mr Uzaidi Udanis ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿ’ผ, the President of MITA & Chairman of the Tourism Productivity Nexus during the event

A plot to showcasing the different types of plants used to producing Boden’s herbal teas ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿต Really an enjoyable tea ๐Ÿต tasting ๐Ÿ˜‹ as each has its unique flavour & health properties ๐Ÿ˜„

Unlike the so called “true tea” which are brewed from the tea leaves ๐Ÿƒ, the Boden herbal tea ๐Ÿตare made from the leaves๐Ÿƒ, fruits๐ŸŒ & flowers๐Ÿ’ from its farm ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ cum garden ๐Ÿคฉ

There are lemongrass, butterfly ๐Ÿฆ‹ pea, ginger, peppermint, Roselle, Mulberry ๐Ÿ’ etc. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿคค

Personally, she loves โค๏ธ the butterfly ๐Ÿฆ‹ tea ๐Ÿต the most, not just because of its purple ๐Ÿ’œ colour, but its taste too ๐Ÿ˜˜


Hmm…So sad ๐Ÿ˜ž that she forgot to get a packet ๐Ÿ›’๐Ÿ› of butterfly ๐Ÿฆ‹ tea ๐Ÿต home ๐Ÿก ๐Ÿ˜ญ

4 The Potting Shed

Yeahโ€ผ๏ธ “Green ๐Ÿ’š Fingers” is a myth ๐Ÿ™ƒ

As you all are aware, different plants ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟrequire a different admixture of the planting media, then the plants will glow & blossom, green ๐Ÿ’š fingers or not ๐Ÿ˜Š

Some of the herbs planting ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟwithin the garden,

Ohh ya…She loves โค๏ธ the interactive ๐Ÿ—ฃ๐Ÿ‘ฅ๐Ÿ‘ค๐Ÿ‘ฅsession at this plot where she got an enjoyable learning & hands on experience in planting ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ

The steps ~ soil mixing, compost, plants & seedling, watering ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง, then harvest ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ

She has chosen for a misai kucing plant ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ & took it home ๐Ÿก after the session as her trip souvenir ๐ŸŽ for her papa ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป

Her papa ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป loves ๐Ÿ’š gardening…Not SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป ya ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿคฃ

Ohh ya…So what’s the exciting bit of this placeโ“โ‰๏ธ

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

She truly enjoyed the river ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง trekking ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ, tubing at Kenaboi river ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง, night ๐ŸŒƒ๐ŸŒŒ jungle ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ walk ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ& a camping ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ• overnight here

Hmm…How to access ๐Ÿ“to this state park ๐Ÿžโ“โ‰๏ธ

This park ๐Ÿž has began to be discovered in 1990 by 4×4 extreme sport activities through the Jemaloi Valley ๐Ÿž of Negeri Sembilan ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

True enough, she has transferred to ride on 4×4 after a coach ๐ŸšŒ ride with her friends ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ to get through the bumpy & potholes road ๐Ÿ›ฃ& then arrived at the base camp site ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•

Dropped off luggages ๐ŸŽ’๐Ÿ’ผ๐Ÿ‘œ at tent โ›บ๏ธ & captured ๐Ÿ“ธ aย group photo 1๏ธโƒฃst before the river ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’งtrekking ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Frankly, it’s quite a challenging ๐Ÿ™ƒ river ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’งtrekking ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ i.e. hiking through the streams to reach to Jeram Berungut ๐Ÿž

It’s definitely worth your sweatsss ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ as you will be amazed with breathtaking ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜ views of the river ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’งcanyons as well as cool & crystal clear waters as the reward ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Since the river ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’งtrekking ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธwas started at late noon ๐Ÿ”…& due to unfavourable weather ๐ŸŒฆ๐ŸŒง, she has yet โŒ to reach & view the well known approximately 93m high Lata Kijang waterfall with all her friends๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ Nevermind, will keep this in her travel bucket list then ๐Ÿ˜†

After the river ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’งtrekking๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ, she has continued with tubing at the Kenaboi river ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง

Just so so relaxing ๐Ÿ˜Œ & not โŒ 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 ๐Ÿ“ธ by the officer of Forestry Department, Negeri Sembilan ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

It was really an awesome ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป day to get close with green ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š natureโ€ผ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Do enjoy a video clip ๐Ÿ“น๐ŸŽฅ captured by her for sharing here,

A cosy comfy night ๐ŸŒƒ๐ŸŒƒ at camp โ›บ๏ธ๐Ÿ• stay, not to worry, there are proper shower ๐Ÿšฟ & washroom ๐Ÿšฝ

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

Hmm…The uniqueness of this park ๐Ÿž includes its rich variety of floral ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฟ cum plants e.g. orchids herbs, ferns, palm trees etc., the abundant waterfalls of the Kering Riverย ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ง i.e. the tributary of the Kenaboi River ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’งwhich often being associated with the local believed myth of the injured deer ๐ŸฆŒ falling into the waterfall. Yes โœ…, hence the name of the waterfalls of Lata Kijang Waterfalls ๐Ÿ˜€

There are approximately 3๏ธโƒฃ indigenous people villages within this park & namely as Tohor Village, London Village & Nap Village. However, SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has yet โŒ to visit to any of these villages during her recent short trip to this park ๐Ÿž

So, what are you waiting forโ“โ‰๏ธ

Let’s plan for a green ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š getaway with aims to destress ๐Ÿ˜Œ with a great change of green ๐Ÿ’šscenery & fresh air ๐ŸŒฌYou will definitely rechargedโ€ผ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Terengganu International Squid Jigging Festival ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

Yeahโ€ผ๏ธ SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป is gonna sharing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ“ about her recent 1๏ธโƒฃst experience of squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ jigging aka candat sotong in Malaysiaโ€™s ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ national language


Itโ€™s at Terengganu state of Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พย ~ Beautiful Terengganu ~ ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคฉ

It was an exclusive media invitation ๐Ÿ“ฉ๐Ÿ“ง๐Ÿ’Œ from Tourism Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พย to join its recreation club annual family trip ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜Š


Hmmโ€ฆWhatโ€™s squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ jigging ๐ŸŽฃโ“โ‰๏ธ

This was exactly the 1๏ธโƒฃst question โ“she had in her mind ๐Ÿ’ญ when she 1๏ธโƒฃst read the invitation ๐Ÿ“ฉ๐Ÿ“ง๐Ÿ’Œ received ๐Ÿค”

Ohh…SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป with her so called “fisher-woman” lookย ๐Ÿ˜‰ (she loves her orange Malaysia batiksarong)ย for this festival ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ participation, pretty ๐Ÿ˜ rightโ“โ‰๏ธ


Hmmโ€ฆShe was told itโ€™s a technique of catching squid ๐ŸŽฃ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ by using a colorful artificial bait. Ohh yaโ€ฆThe colorful artificial baits actually glow in the dark, thatโ€™s how the squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ will then easily got attracted to. When the bait is being dropped down & sank to the bottom of the sea ๐ŸŒŠ bed, a rope will then raise up. Then, advisable to keep both pull up โฌ†๏ธ & pull down โฌ‡๏ธ the rope as this helps to attract the attention of the squid ๐Ÿฆ‘ ๐Ÿฆ‘

She yet to touch the bait herself during her recent jigging ๐ŸŽฃ participation, so googled ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐ŸŒ to share how colourful the baits are ๐Ÿ˜€

Ohh…Whyโ“โ‰๏ธ Do read ๐Ÿ“– on to find out yaย ๐Ÿ˜‰


Guess whatโ“โ‰๏ธ

This candat sotong ๐ŸŽฃ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ is also the daily activity of many local people ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ or fishermen ๐Ÿšค๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ in Terengganu to earn a living ๐Ÿ’ฐ However, it has been being commercialised by the Tourism Terengganu since 1991 as 1๏ธโƒฃ of the Terengganu’s tourism attractions๐Ÿ“

Curious ๐Ÿค” when to enjoy this squid jigging๐ŸŽฃ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘โ“โ‰๏ธ

This jigging ๐ŸŽฃ activity is seasonal & usually around the last week of March till July each year i.e. when the monsoon season ends / monsoon winds ๐ŸŒฌ๐Ÿ’จ๐ŸŒŠ towards the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ The appropriate time ๐Ÿ•” to be out at sea for it would be advisable between 5๏ธโƒฃpm to 6๏ธโƒฃam. At night ๐ŸŒƒ๐ŸŒŒ, lightings ๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ’กfrom the boats ๐Ÿšค๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ are extremely important to catch the attention of the squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ & to attract them to swim ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ towards the boat ๐Ÿšค๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ


So, SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป has witnessed the official launch ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ of this 2018 Terengganu International Squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ Jigging ๐ŸŽฃ Festival

Interestingly, the launch ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ was quite special by using some fake squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ for the special guest, Menteri Besar Terengganu๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿพโ€๐Ÿ’ผ~ Yang Amat Berhormat Datoโ€™ Seri Haji Ahmad Razif bin Abdul Rahman to demonstrate to all the participants on how to candat sotong (or the right way)ย ๐ŸŽฃ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ย that evening ๐Ÿ™

After the launch ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ, she was then being arranged to be in a boat ๐Ÿšค with 8๏ธโƒฃ members ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ฌ (i.e. the max legal no. of pax in the fishing boat ๐Ÿšค as listed on its fishing license ๐Ÿ“‹). Most of the boatsย ๐Ÿšค๐Ÿšค were with late departure due to the unfavourable weather ๐ŸŒฆโ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒซย & boats ๐Ÿšค๐Ÿšคย traffic jam that evening ๐Ÿ™ from Batin Village Jetty โš“๏ธ


For this 2018 fetsival ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ, there were approximately of total 220 participants ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ including media members & all being allocated into 22 boats ๐Ÿšค๐Ÿšค Wowโ€ผ๏ธ A big crowdโ€ผ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ฒ Thatโ€™s why the jetty โš“๏ธ was experiencing boats ๐Ÿšค๐Ÿšค traffic jam to anchor & pick up all the participants ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ


Yeahโ€ผ๏ธ Flag off ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ

Then, the boatsย ๐Ÿšค were sailing towards the candat sotong ๐ŸŽฃ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ location at Marang which supposedly for another 1.5 hours sail ๐Ÿšค๐ŸŒŠ journey. Most of the time, long hours are required i.e. at least 6๏ธโƒฃ hours & more in the middle of the sea ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ

So, if your trip with some females members ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ญ, would advise to hire a bigger boat ๐Ÿ›ฅ which with proper shower ๐Ÿšฟ & toilet ๐Ÿšฝ facilities

Hmmโ€ฆShe was well taken care by her travel mates ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซ๐Ÿ‘ฌ to consume a piece of the motion sickness pill ๐Ÿ’Š before the boat trip ๐Ÿšค๐ŸŽฃ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ This is a precaution to avoid suffering seasickness ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐ŸŒŠ (unstable headache, nausea etc.) especially when the boat ๐Ÿšค anchor down โš“๏ธ for the squid jigging ๐ŸŽฃ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ location ๐Ÿ“ & coupled with sea waves ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ & boating boats ๐Ÿšค in the middle of the ocean ๐ŸŒŠ


Sighโ€ฆQuite disappointing for a 1๏ธโƒฃst timer like her. The luck ๐Ÿ€ was not really with her & her boat mates ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ฌ that evening๐Ÿ™, the weather was unfavourable โ˜๏ธ๐ŸŒฆ๐ŸŒซ It was with strong sea waves ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ especially when the boat ๐Ÿšค was sailing ventured towards the middle of the ocean ๐ŸŒŠ to reach to Marang, the squid jigging ๐ŸŽฃ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ location๐Ÿ“

However, personally she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป thinks what’s more important was the experience gained. She respect the decision made by the boat ๐Ÿšค captain ๐Ÿ‘จโ€โœˆ๏ธ of not ventured further towards the strong sea waves ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ that night ๐ŸŒƒ๐ŸŒŒ Safety of all boat mates ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ฌ more important & there is always a next time ๐Ÿค—โ˜บ๏ธ

~ Everything happens for a reason ~

There were 3๏ธโƒฃ boatsย ๐Ÿšคย ๐Ÿšคย ๐Ÿšคย that unable to enjoy the squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ jigging ๐ŸŽฃ fun due to the strong sea waves ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ that night ๐ŸŒƒ๐ŸŒŒ

Do enjoy a full video clip ๐Ÿ“น๐ŸŽฅ captured from her 1๏ธโƒฃst squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ jigging ๐ŸŽฃ participation, the strong sea waves ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ was being captured too ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Some tips shared by her travel mates ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซ learnt from their successful squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ jigging ๐ŸŽฃ participations in this recent trip to avoid seasickness ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐ŸŒŠ

  1. Consume motion sickness pill ๐Ÿ’Š at least 1๏ธโƒฃ or 2๏ธโƒฃ hours before boat departure ๐Ÿšค๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ
  2. Before the boat departure ๐Ÿšค๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ, advisable to avoid heavy meal๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿด, spicy ๐ŸŒถ / oily foods etc.
  3. While on board in the boat๐Ÿšค, do avoid seating at the boat engine diesel smoke ๐Ÿ’จ area (usually the back of the boat)
  4. During the boat sailing ๐Ÿšค๐ŸŒŠ or anchor โš“๏ธ moment, do avoid your eye contact ๐Ÿ‘€ or eye concentrating ๐Ÿ‘ to the sea waves ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ Do always have your eyes ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘ look far ahead
  5. If starting to feel dizzy ๐Ÿ˜ต/ discomfort ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐ŸŒŠ, do lye down & try to sleep ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ’ค if possible
  6. If feel like to vomit ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคฎ / throw out ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐ŸŒŠ, just do it, no need to feel shy โ˜บ๏ธ

If you are interested, do check out for a boat ๐Ÿšค hire which depending on the boat size, the facilities provided e.g. with jigging ๐ŸŽฃ equipment available, shower ๐Ÿšฟ cum toilet ๐Ÿšฝ facilities, kitchen facilities, meals ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿดetc.

Ohh yaโ€ฆShe ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป was told usually the dinner ๐Ÿด ๐Ÿฝ will be prepared by the boat ๐Ÿšค owner ๐Ÿ‘จโ€โœˆ๏ธupon your boat ๐Ÿšค hire. The dinner menu ๐Ÿฝ of course the fresh squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ from the ocean ๐ŸŒŠ as main dish for the night ๐ŸŒƒ๐ŸŒŒ

Hmmโ€ฆEven though herself & her boat mates ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ฌ werenโ€™t able to sail ๐Ÿšค๐ŸŒŠ to Marang for the night ๐ŸŒƒ๐ŸŒŒ & enjoyed the supposedly squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ jigging ๐ŸŽฃ funโ€ฆ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Guess whatโ“โ‰๏ธ

Still got chance to enjoy the big squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘โ€ฆNo should say huge squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ BBQ ๐Ÿ”ฅ feast as dinner ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿด๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿคค

Frankly, SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป is not really a squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ lover ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’— (as you all know from her food blogging ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ“ here, she loves prawns ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆ), however that night ๐ŸŒƒ๐ŸŒŒ she truly enjoyed very much the BBQ squid feast ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿด


The local people ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซย has recommended her to taste the BBQ squid ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ with the special homemade spicy ๐ŸŒถ sauce prepared, however she didnโ€™t โŒ dip it at all. She prefers the natural sweetness from the fresh squid ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘ itself with some salty taste from the sea ๐ŸŒŠ water ๐Ÿ’ฆ ๐Ÿ’ง So so tasty delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿคค

She really missed the superb yummy ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿคค taste of the huge fresh squid while blogging ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ“ย her experience here thoughโ€ฆHaโ€ฆHaโ€ฆHungryโ€ฆhungryโ€ฆ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

Do enjoy a short clip ๐Ÿ“น๐ŸŽฅ captured by her to share her huge squid BBQ ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฆ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿด feast. Hmm…Just don’t get hungry ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿคค while watching this clip ๐Ÿ“น๐ŸŽฅ ya ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜œ

The 8 Wonders of Johor!

Still remember ๐Ÿ’ญ Johor state, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ is the 1๏ธโƒฃst state that SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป received an exclusive 1st media invitation from Tourism Johor in the beginning of her lifestyle blogging ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ“journey, then subsequently a few more.ย A special thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป& great appreciation for the trust๐Ÿค

Hmm…Where are the 8๏ธโƒฃ wonders recently visited by SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป at Johor ~ the Southern gateway into Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ โ“โ‰๏ธ

(i) Zeromile akaย Kilometre Zero0๏ธโƒฃ

What’s it meant forโ“โ‰๏ธ

It’s also written as KM0๏ธโƒฃ i.e.ย a particular location๐Ÿ“usually a country’s capital city ๐ŸŒ†๐Ÿ™ from which the distances are traditionally measured๐Ÿ”ข Historically, they were markers๐Ÿ“where drivers ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿš•๐Ÿš™๐ŸšŒ๐Ÿšš๐Ÿš could set theirย odometersย to follow the directions in the early days๐Ÿ˜„

For West Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ, this monument 0๏ธโƒฃ is located right in front of theย Johor Bahruย General Post Office ๐Ÿ“ฎ at Jalan Ibrahim Sultan. It’s 1๏ธโƒฃ of the rare cases where the zeromile 0๏ธโƒฃ is not located at the country’s capital city๐Ÿค—
