National Park Pahang, Malaysia ðŸ‡²ðŸ‡Ÿ

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 1⃣ 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 1⃣ million over tourists 👫👭👬 since day 1⃣, has led me 👚🏻‍💌 to the formation of 2⃣ 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 2⃣ 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 1⃣ of our examples for the educational program is the re-planting of bamboo 🎋🎍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 🙏🏻

Guess what❓⁉

The founder of Tanah Aina Resort 🏞🏘, Puan Sri Shariffa Sabrina Syed Akil 👩🏜‍💌 is also the President for PEKA 🌱 Malaysia 🇲🇟

So, what’s PEKA 🌱 Malaysia 🇲🇟 you may ask❓⁉

It’s an NGO (aka Non-governmental/ non-profit making organisation) known as Pertubuhan Pelindung Khazanah Alam Malaysia 🇲🇟

PEKA 🌱 was formed with objectives,

  • To stop ✋ 🛑 the destruction of natural resources💚
  • To defend the rights of environment & be the voice of nature💚
  • To create awareness, strength & assurance in defending the natural 💚 heritage

Photo 06-02-2018, 7 17 10 PM.jpg

PEKA’s logo symbolises the shape of a leaf 🌱 that provides an ultimate inspiration of PEKA 🌱 Malaysia 🇲🇟

PEKA 🌱 means “sensitive” in Bahasa Melayu i.e. National language of Malaysia 🇲🇟 & it is rightly suitable towards its objectives to achieve ✅

PEKA 🌱 have been actively in community activities ensuring preservation of rainforests 🌳🌳 in particularly replanting of lost rainforests 🌳🌳 as it’s really critical because we are losing most of the rainforests 🌳🌳 fast😔😌

So, SORR 🏃🏻‍♀🏃🏻‍♂2018 is gonna be its 6⃣th year & will be held on 24 March 2018 at Hutan Simpan Gading🌳🌳, Hulu Selangor. UMW Toyota 🚗🚘 & Concorde Hotel Shah Alam 🏢 as its main sponsors💰💪🏻

“PEKA 🌱Malaysiais extremely concerned about indiscriminate logging nationwide 🌎 which affects the water 💊💧catchment areas & loss of wildlife 🐅🐆🊓🊍🐘🊏🊒habitats. If we do not start doing something, there might not be any rainforest 🌳🌳 left for our future generations,” she added👩🏜‍💌
