#TravelogueMalaysia: A Day to explore heritage @ Johor Bahru (JB)

After morning 🔆🔅 breakfast 🍽☕️ from Amari Hotel JB 🧡🏢(Do stay tune for her next stay vacation 🛌🛀🏻🚿 blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 ya), SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 & her writers gang 👫👭👬 have decided for a day to exploring the heritage of old town JB 🇲🇾

It was started with a morning 🔆🔅heritage walk 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️Yeah‼️

A mixed feeling 😃😌 while walking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️down the memory lane of the old town here, why❓⁉️

Some of the old shops are really well maintained👍🏻, including still operating the businesses as inherited, while some actually have transformed to modern faces 🏢… Her personal thought 💭 , it would be good 👍🏻 if all old buildings are maintained as its origin as possible though☺️

However, she also well received ☺️ that town evolution is unavoidable too…Hmm…Happy 😃 that old town JB is still not too bad in its heritage maintenance thus far. Bravo‼️👍🏻👏🏻

So, she was impressed 🤩 with 1️⃣ of the old business which stay from the olden days till now😲
