Stay @ Hotel Seri Malaysia Kuala Terengganu 🇲🇾

After reading 📖 SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻’s earlier sharing about the road less travelled in Terengganu, Malaysia 🇲🇾

 

This round, she is gonna sharing her stay at Hotel Seri Malaysia Kuala Terengganu 🏢, some nearby attractions 📍📍& snacks 😋🤤 within walking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️distance & below 3️⃣0️⃣mins drive 🚗🚙

~ Discover Malaysia 🇲🇾 Through Hotel Seri Malaysia 🏢 ~

Yes✅, it’s 1️⃣ of the largest local hotel 🏢 chain in Malaysia 🇲🇾 with 21 hotels strategically located 📍in most states within Malaysia 🇲🇾 (except Kelantan & Sabah) currently 🤗

Yeah‼️ She was welcome 🙏🏻 with the hotel mascot named ~ “Abang SEM” aka Brother SEM 💁🏽‍♂️

Guess what❓⁉️

Inside the mascot 💁🏽‍♂️ is the Chef Cook 👨🏽‍🍳 of this hotel 🏢, really enjoyed 😋🤤 his hotel dishes especially the Glutinuous Rice 🍚 with Tongkol fish curry 🍛 as well as the Tom Yum steamboat dinner 🥘 during her stay

She 👩🏻 was told during her check-in 🔑 with her media friends 👫👭👬 that this hotel 🏢 is 1️⃣ of the oldest within the chain of Hotel Seri Malaysia🏢

From her recent stay 🛌🚿🚽 for 3️⃣ nights, she is highly recommended 👍🏻👆🏻 this hotel 🏢 to all of you gonna pay Beautiful Terengganu a visit soon 😍🤩

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Why❓⁉️

  • Its strategic location 📍at the centre town of Kuala Terengganu
  • The rooms are comfy 😌👍🏻 with complimentary 🆓 mineral water 💦💧 , towels & toiletries
  • Next to peaceful beautiful Terengganu River 💦💧

 

  • Next to a Chinese temple ⛩ aka Thien Hou temple 天后宫
  • 1️⃣min walking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️ distance to Kampung Cina aka China Town

Do enjoy a morning 🔅🔆 walk 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️& capture your beautiful photos 📸 at many wall murals 🎨🖌 within the many alleys of it 😍🤩

 

  • 2️⃣mins walking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️ to the oldest Chinese temple ⛩ in Terengganu named 和安宫

A market where the Terengganu locals 👭👬👫will drop by for wet market shopping, groceries, daily home supplies as well as tourists for some souvenirs 🛒🛍🎁

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

You will spot turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚 too at the wet market area. SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 was surprise 😱 & would advise not to purchase any to protect this endangered species ~ turtle 🐢

IMG_3636IMG_3639

Sigh 😔 …She was told that it’s ❌ not explicitly forbidden to sell & eat turtle eggs in Terengganu because it’s the tradition of this state to consume turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚 Also the lack of a national ban currently where the sale of turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚 come from another state/ international are permitted. It was tough to differentiate turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚 by place of origin, hence enforcement really challenging

If possible, do plan a cruise here to view the beautiful 😍🤩 crystal mosque 🕌 within this park

IMG_3457.jpg

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has missed her cruise 🚢 during her 1️⃣st visit due to tight travel schedule 🗒 (Only from on the road passing & spotted it, then this capture 📸 )

  • 18mins drive 🚗🚙 to Pasar Malam Manir aka Manir Night Market (Only every Monday 5pm to 10pm) 🛒🛍😋🤤

This is a famous snack 😋🤤 place for “Ikan Celup Tepung” aka flour-fried fish 🐟 , including other seafoods e.g. prawns 🍤🦐 , squids 🦑, mango sticky rice 🍚 etc.

After the snacking 🍽😋 here, do drop by the opposite beach 🏖🏝 site for a relaxing swing time 😆😄

Hmmm…The breakfast 🍽☕️ served at Hotel Seri Malaysia Kuala Lumpur 🏢 is with tasty 😋 selection of local Terengganu as well as western style choices too ✌🏻

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🤗

Photo 23-04-2018, 6 17 23 PM.jpg

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

Yeah‼️ Let’s enjoy a black ◼️& white ◻️ photo album 📸 captured by her ya😍
