After the walking tour, all enjoyed tasty fresh seafood lunch served in Restoran Heng Heng Kopitiam 🍽️😋👍🏻

After lunch, met with Tok Chua Kim Lin, the President of Majlis Pengurusan Komuniti Kampung (MPKK) Bagan Pulau Ketam, Negeri Selangor. Tok Chua Kim Lin has encouraged all trip participants to organise more tours/ trips to visit to Pulau Ketam. During the met-up session, Mr. Kenny Ng, Vice President (VP) Inbound of MITA has suggested to Tok Chua Kim Lin to organise more cleaning & rubbish collection campaigns as rubbish are observed during the walking tour in Pulau Ketam & this may affect the potential tourism growth of this island to the tourists.

All trip participants ended the day with a satisfied fresh seafood platter dinner at Restoran Jia Jia 🍽️😋👍🀼ôŽ°Š

The highlight of this trip that SiennyLovesDrawing really enjoyed personally is the visit & environmental awareness program at the Pulau Ketam Tzu Chi Environmental Protection Recycling Station (Tzu Chi) ♻️ which established since 25 Oct 2011 in Pulau Ketam 🦀🏝️

All trip participants get to participate in the local environmental awareness program with Tzu Chi volunteers. The program started with an introduction of Tzu Chi Association & their go green 💚♻️ efforts by Tzu Chi Association in Pulau Ketam to raise the environmental awareness. From this session, all trip participants got to know that the rubbish condition in Pulau Ketam 🦀🏝️ has been improved better since the go green awareness efforts by Tzu Chi to the local island residents here , of course it can be improved greater for a cleaner Pulau Ketam in near future for the local island residents as well as local & foreign visitors

.

Next, a warm up body session with a light aerobic exercise led by the Tzu Chi volunteers. Then, followed with a split of 2️⃣ groups trip participants for an outdoor activity to the nearby recycle collection station to assemble & classification of reusable resources, then collected all the reusable resources into the reusable fish nets & returned to Pulau Ketam Tzu Chi Environmental Protection Station ♻️

After the group photo 📸 session of all trip participants with the reusable resources collected, hand washing session & then the reusable resources processing explanation session by Tzu Chi volunteers. All trip participants get to understand the brief features of the processing & transferring reusable ♻️✅ resources by the different grade of plastics

It’s really not easy to do recycling 💚♻️, of course the 1️⃣st buy in of the local residents to willingly put in the reusable resources into the collection station set up. However, there are a minority of local residents that misused the collection station as another dustbin on the island 🙄

After the collection of reusable resources, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has learnt that lots of tedious works involved especially the separation of different parts of a plastic reusable resources collected. Other reusable resources collected are glass 🍾, boxes/ cardboard 📦, papers ğŸ—žï¸, books 📚, CDs etc.

Guess what❓⁉️

Glass bottles 🍾🍾 can be recycled by using a special machine to crushing them into small glass pieces, then can be mixed into soil for plantation 🌱🌿🌳 purposes

Amazing learning gained 👍🏻

Yeah‼️ A yummy healthy vegetarian lunch 🍽️😋👍🏻 prepared by Tzu Chi volunteers as an appreciation to all trip participants for their visit & go green activity participation by all trip participants

All enjoyed the lunch happily 😃😁

.

The program is then followed by Q&A, as well as an experience sharing session. During the sharing session, Tzu Chi volunteers have encouraged all the trip participants to include an environmental awareness session in their tours or trips organised moving forward, so that more people will be encouraged to start their own go green habits respectively ğŸ’šâ™»ï¸ğŸŒŽ

Ms Yap SC of Holiday Link Sdn Bhd, the trip organiser has shared her appreciation 🙏🏻💗 to all trip participants for their participation in this FAM trip & encouraged all trip participants to start organising similar environmental awareness tours/ trips moving forward

Ms Yik Thim of Tourism Selangor shared that her shopping habit now is too lazy to buy 🛍️ It means if she knows she will throw the item subsequently, she will not buy it now ❌🛍️ It’s a good way to reduce on 3️⃣R efforts. She has added that she does home cooking 🧑🏻‍🍳, so now she uses her kitchen waste / food waste from her daily home cooking preparation as home plant fertilizer. Then, her home plant 🌿🌱 will then grow as her own home cooking ingredients. Amazing way of being environmentally friendly ğŸ’šğŸŒŽ

.

Ms Jennifer of Tzu Chi has added that parcels 📦 from online shopping actually causing lots of headache in Tzu Chi’s recycle efforts especially the sticking tape on the parcel 📦 box that the Tzu Chi volunteers have to remove the tapes from each parcel box 📦 during the process of recycling the reusable resources

Mr, Kenny Ng, VP Inbound of MITA has suggested to Tzu Chi volunteers to collaborate more with the associations outside of Pulau Ketam 🦀🏝️, also to start influencing the younger generations to educate them on 3️⃣R efforts ie. Reduce, Reuse & Recycle ♻️. Those can reuse or repair, don’t buy 🆕 one

At the end of this trip, many trip participants have agreed 💯👍🏻 to organise more eco & environmental awareness tours moving forward & start with own self 1️⃣st & then influencing people around on go green ♻️ habits ~ 3️⃣Rs for a better planet ğŸŒŽ to live in

Yes ✅, let’s all continue to do our part for a better living environment, each of us play an important role in go green efforts ya 💪🏻🙌🏻👍🏻

Heritage historical tour @ Hulu Selangor , Malaysia

Day 1

It was a raining day 🌧️☔ with sharp departure from Matic KL to Serendah @ 7.40am, the name Serendah in Malaysia’s national language ~ Bahasa Malaysia reflects that this area is located at a low level

Went straight to Macau street, Serendah for breakfast. This is the only Macao street that remains now from the total 5️⃣ Macao streets in the world ğŸŒŽ ie. Kuala Lumpur, Serendah, Malacca, Penang & Singapore. This street will be a food street of Serendah in the future as shared by Mr Andy Pah during lunch of that day

Highly recommended the tea egg dessert served at Kedai Kopi Yee Kee. The egg well boiled in sweet tea soup, yum yum 😋👍🏻 SiennyLovesDrawing & her friend were lucky to enjoy this well known dessert @ 9am. It normally ready to serve around 10am. She loves this hot dessert as tasted it for the 1st time. A must try ya 😀 They were sharing a table with a retired couple, had a good chat with them, a happy breakfast

Address📍: https://maps.app.goo.gl/vrZJbeZV4oRdiZJz9

Then, visited the Hock Leng Keng Temple 双文丹福靈宫 which founded in 1869. It’s a 150 years old Taoism temple with a museum to visit to learn the history of this temple & Serendah. It used to be a medical temple for the village residents, especially kids here. SiennyLovesDrawing got impressed by how well this temple is being maintained till now

SiennyLovesDrawing also personally suggested to her to inform the relevant authorized person of Galeri Sejarah KKB to consider adding all the gallery info exhibited in English so foreign visitors will have a chance to read & understand the KKB history from this gallery. Many foreign travellers love to visit the museum of a local place on a travel journey, so it’s important for this gallery to add in the English version of all exhibited information

To SiennyLovesDrawing personally, this is an important heritage spot to visit to learn more about Serendah history & the advancement of technology at that time for flood preventing

However, during this visit, she is sad to see the rubbish & not well taken care of this place. Special thanks to 1 of her travelmate, Ms MC who have shared the before photo captured from her visit in Aug 2020 that the Seven Wells were all functioning with cleaner surrounding at that time

At present, there are 2 wells that no longer with water 💦 Sigh…She wishes the relevant authorities can actually take some appropriate action to well maintain this beautiful site as Malaysia is slowly resuming tourism activities at the moment.

Sepang Corner Healthy Fruit & Florist

Yeah‼️ Sepang is well known for its dragon fruits plantations, in fact the biggest dragon fruits plantations in Malaysia 🇲🇾 , you can easily spot the cactus alike dragon fruits plants almost everywhere here 🤩

This education trip has involved its participants to learn & DIY own bottle of Pitaya Enzyme here, precious learning time gained & at the same time to instill healthy living tips, bravo 👏🏻

Hmm…Before joining, SiennyLovesDrawing was curious 🤔❓⁉️

  • What’s the ratio/ portion❓
  • Fermentation in room temperature❓
  • Need to stir it? If yes, for how many days❓
  • What’s the nutrition of Pitaya enzyme❓
  • How to keep the Pitaya enzyme❓

Guess what❓⁉️

The secret ingredients & tools are simple, just the dragon fruits, lemon & brown sugar, knife 🔪 & glass bottle. The instructor has shared that must use glass bottle for Pitaya Enzyme DIY making, else it will fail…So, do remember ya

The DIY pitaya enzyme steps also easy to follow from the instructor’s guidance,

  1. Wash hand & fruits, then clean & slice the fruits with knife 🔪
  2. Put in all the ingredients layer by layer in the glass bottle
  3. Once full, close the lid & store the glass bottle in a cool & dry place. No need to place in fridge yet
  4. Do shake the bottle gently everyday to get the brown sugar to coat the fruits nicely
  5. The pitaya enzyme should be ready in approximately 3️⃣ weeks
  6. However, once opening the lid for consumption, do place the enzyme in fridge. The 🆒 temperature will slow down the fermentation process & delay the enzyme from turning into vinegar

Do check out SiennyLovesDrawing’s happy DIY pitaya enzyme TikTok clip captured & more photos via 📸🌐 https://www.facebook.com/100004950135932/posts/1779598448881809/

Toy Review ~ Funnyzzle My Animal Story

Yeah‼️ Continue from SiennyLovesDrawing’s 👩🏻 earlier blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 on #StayHome ideas, this specifically relating to teaching & learning with young kid @ home 🏡 (Item 20) via 🌐 https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2020/03/24/not-boring-exciting-stayhome/

Yes ✅, she has started to introduce, teaching & guiding her little niece to read & learn 👩🏻💗👶🏻✍🏻📚📲

.

This round her little niece & herself would like to sharing the user experience of happy 😃 playing & learning with Funnyzzle My Animal Story ~ 3D AR animations for children 👩🏻💗👶🏻🧩🧩

It’s suitable for kids aged 3️⃣ & above

~ More than puzzles 🧩🧩 ~

.

1️⃣st impression, nice packaging in a box ğŸŽ with each categories’ puzzle cards 🧩🧩 placement so that it’s easier for kids to choose & pick to create sentences & then a storyline. A detailed user guide for her as 1️⃣ of its users to download the app via 🌐 https://apps.apple.com/my/app/funnyzzle-animal/id1526986488 for free 🆓 & then use it to start creating stories with her little niece & then enjoy the 3D AR animations

Quick download of the app 📲 as per user guide & very simple easy to use it. Yes ✅, our stories created just come to life in 3D animation. You can actually record the AR animation stories creation within the app either photo or video with your voice

How to play❓⁉️

  • Use the 5 story guide cards as a 1st time user to guide your kid
  • Select the word cards 🧩🧩
  • Create a sentence by combining the word cards & maximum 5 cards for a sentence
  • Watch your sentence created come to life in 3D 📲 AR animation with the app

Impressive & amazing creation for kids learning 💗👍🏻

This toy is amazingly to instill kid’s creativity & imaginations, even though the sentence may not make sense from the kid, it still appear live on screen, then the kid/ accompany guardian can explain & rationalise the story logic to the kid

Just a note from SiennyLovesDrawing to all guardian/ parent, don’t stop your kid though you observation of the non making sense sentence created by your kid, do allow your kid to view the 3D AR live on screen of their sentence creation, then you can pop question to ask, guide & then explain to your kid for a greater logical thinking

Do click in to enjoy her IG album of capturing some learning moments with her little niece,

Yes, it develops & trains logical thinking of the kid while creating story with this toy

Suggest to get your kids wear on blue light protection glasses & use a device stand for healthier learning experience with this toy

1️⃣ of the thoughtful designs within the app 📲 that she has personally appreciated is to have a timer ⏱ set so that her device 📱will not get too hot ♨️ due to the long period usage of the camera 📸 for the AR animation stories’ creation with Funnyzzle & her little niece 😃

However, as observed her little niece story creation progress with Funnyzzle, sometimes the 3D AR animations may not nicely appeared, overall still acceptable

Funnyzzle teaches storytelling-based coding & helps develop logical thinking ability & #creativity‼️ The cards’ 🧩🧩 categories consist of ‘Who (Animal cards), What (Object cards), When·Where (Background cards) & How (Action cards)’ & with the Sound cards (To learn sound of the animals, songs & say the word) all can create lots of stories‼️😁 Her little niece learns new words & vocabulary with the “Say The Word” card eg. Sleigh as captured in her IG album

Personally she would like to have more than 16 cards of each categories, ha…ha…more cards can tell more stories, hope there will be more advanced version of this Funnyzzle in near future

From her observation of her little niece’s learning with Funnyzzle, the touch, pitch & move the animals/ objects in live AR animations would be good not just only available in the recording mode. It can then encourage greater interactiveness from the kids while learning with it if the same functions available in the live animation screen

.

Absolutely to foster the creativity of children 👶🏻 by letting them to construct each scene & create their own animations. As guardians/ parents 👩🏻👶🏻 , do accompany your kids to playing & learning with Funnyzzle to improving your kids’ storytelling ability & guiding their logical thinking ability

Or you may be amazed with kids’ imagination & #storytelling ability. Personally she has learnt from her little niece too 😉

In summary, from her personal user experience with her little niece, this Funnyzzle absolutely a good 👍🏻 learning tool created for kids. It actually makes learning more interesting

Both her little niece & herself are happy users & satisfied learners 😃👩🏻👶🏻Hmm…Just that sometimes the AR animations came in live maybe in odd position, overall still acceptable & a nice toy created for kids

Yes ✅, she has learnt how to create story with Funnyzzle & let thestories come live in 3D AR animation on screen 📲 She is amazed that kids’ imagination really wonders 👍🏻💗 Lol…😂.

Do check out her happy learning & storrytelling as well as say the word moments with Funnyzzle TikTok clip captured,

National Park Pahang, Malaysia ğŸ‡²ğŸ‡¾

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has recently travelled to Taman Negara 🌳🌳 (aka National Park 🌳🌳 ) Pahang, Malaysia 🇲🇾 with MITA business networking trip & enjoyed her back to nature 💚 stay 🛌🚿🚽😴💤 at Han Rainforest Resort 🏡🏘🏡

She 👩🏻 had a privilege to meet & enjoyed an inspiring chat 🗣👤 with the founder of the resort🏡🏘🏡, Mr Kenny Ng 👨🏻‍💼(Uncle Kenny) about his nature 💚 💚 passion & resort busines journey

Oppsss…SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has forgot 🤦🏻‍♀️ to have a photo 📸 with Uncle Kenny 👨🏻‍💼 during this trip

He 👨🏻‍💼 has generously shared an article ✍🏻📜wrote by him & SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 would like to share 👩🏻‍💻📝 it here, inclusion of her favourite ❤️ emojisss & capturesss 📸 in between 😃😁

🤗 ~ Sharing is caring as always ~~ 🤗

Taman Negara🌳🌳, situated in the heart ❤️of Pahang, Malaysia 🇲🇾 , is 1️⃣ of the oldest rainforest 🌳🌳 in the world 🗺🌍 at 130 million years old

Within it, lays a geographical 🌍 wonder of permanently untouched & protected habitat for flora 🌳🌱🌿🌺 & fauna 🦓🐆🐅🐘 to florish to all its glory

As such, this a perfect 👍🏻 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 🗺🌍 platform for the both Eco & Adventure education tourism centre 😃

My 👨🏻‍💼 humble beginnings of 30 plus years specialising in tourism at Taman Negara 🌳🌳 & the handling of some 1️⃣ million over tourists 👫👭👬 since day 1️⃣, has led me 👨🏻‍💼 to the formation of 2️⃣ travel agencies (NKS & Han Travel) & a resort 🏡🏘🏡 with the biggest room capacity at Kuala Tahan. We average 30k tourists 👬👫👭 a year & 90% of them are from Europe 🇬🇧 🇮🇹 🇩🇪 🌍🗺

It has come to a time, where I 👨🏻‍💼 feel personally, having been in this trade for 30 odd years, it is time to educate the younger generation 👧🏻🧒🏻👦🏻🧑🏻 & anyone from all walks of life willing to learn about the conservation 💚 of the ecology & its surroundings

We at Han Travel, have formed 2️⃣ 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 🙋🏻‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♂️💁🏻‍♀️ & in support 💪🏻 with the activities provided by the Adventure Management Tourism headed by Mr Kevin Bateman & his team 🙋🏽‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♂️💁🏻‍♀️

Just 1️⃣ of our examples for the educational program is the re-planting of bamboo ğŸŽ‹ğŸŽ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 😥😓 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 👭👫👬 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 👭👬👫

I👨🏻‍💼now urge, the Pahang state Government, Ministry of Tourism & other related government agencies to assist us in paving the way into this journey with us 🙏🏻🤝👏🏻🙌🏻

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

  • Thailand 🇹🇭 ~ Culture tourism
  • Indonesia 🇮🇩 ~ Art tourism
  • Philippines 🇵🇭 ~ Diving tourism
  • Malaysia 🇲🇾 ~ Eco & Adventure tourism

All told, our Ministry of Tourism Malaysia 🇲🇾 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 👨🏻‍💼 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 👫👭👬 can touch, feel, smell, see and hear the importance of the ecology 💚around us & the threats to its and our existence 😃😁

Thank you 🙏🏻
