Kubang Jela House Stay @ Terrapuri Heritage Village, Terengganu, Malaysia

Yeah‌ From the recent travel 🚌🚍 to Terengganu đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ, SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» had an exclusive privilege to meet đŸ‘‹đŸ» & have a short chat đŸ—ŁđŸ‘€ with the founder of Terrapuri Heritage Village, Mr Alex Lee đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ He is a Chinese Peranakan, born & grown up in Marang, Terengganu đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ

She đŸ‘©đŸ» is gonna sharing đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“âœđŸ» here about all she đŸ‘©đŸ» has learnt from her chat đŸ—ŁđŸ‘€ with Mr Alex đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œabout the ups âŹ†ïž & downs âŹ‡ïž in pursuing his passion ❀ towards the conservation & restoration of Terengganu traditional Malay architecture 🏡🏘 He đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ has proudly told that he loves 💗 each old houses 🏡🏘 that he has collected thus far & each 1ïžâƒŁ is unique to him with a story behind respectively 😀

Question❓: Can you spot SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» in below photos 📾📾 album? She đŸ‘©đŸ» was having a nice đŸ‘đŸ» pre-dinner chat đŸ—ŁđŸ‘€with Mr Alex @ Sesayap Courtyard, Terrapuri Heritage Village during her recent stay

Ha…Ha…She đŸ‘©đŸ» actually thought that Mr Alex đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œwas an architect by profession. Mr Alex has confirmed that he is a tourism industry player with own tourism businesses in guest house 🏡 , boutique hotel, dining đŸœđŸŽ, cafe ☕, tours, souvenirs (batik) 🛍🎁 etc.

Guess what❓⁉

Mr Alex đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ1ïžâƒŁst started to learn about guest house 🏡 renting (i.e. used his grandpa đŸ‘ŽđŸ» ‘s 2ïžâƒŁ shoplots 🏱🏱) at his young age đŸ§‘đŸ» with initial intention to save for his education fund đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸŽ“He used to drawing âœđŸ»đŸŽšđŸ–Œown brochure to selling the rooms at bus stations 🚌🚌 & received great responses from many backpackers đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Źback then. He đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œalso learnt how to package his room with simple breakfast ☕đŸ„Ș, yes ✅, he can cookâ€ŒïžđŸ‘đŸ»

Ended up he đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ continues his tourism business till now without further study âŒđŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸŽ“despite in years between 2006 to 2008 with a cross road 🔀 for his choice, whether IT vs heritage, nature & culture. Obviously he đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œhas chosen the later. Ha…Ha…He has shared in his IG (refer above 📾) recently that he wants to be a Youtuber (IT) now (2019) being inspired by his youngest son 👹‍👩, a famous gaming Youtuber

Also she đŸ‘©đŸ» is gonna sharing đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“ about her wonderful overnight đŸ˜ŽđŸ’€đŸ›Œ in Kubang Jela house 🏡 in this village. Hmm…A night 🌌🌃 stay just too short, personally she đŸ‘©đŸ» recommends for a 3ïžâƒŁD2ïžâƒŁN to appreciating the layout of an inspired 17th century Terengganu Palace 👑 as an great đŸ‘đŸ» output of restoration the Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘 of at least 💯 years & above, as well as its peaceful village surrounding 🏞

💯 years meaning easily at least with 4ïžâƒŁ generations before Mr AlexđŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œbought the old houses 🏡🏘 Some of the houses 🏡🏘 were once belong to the royal families 👑👑 Woow‌đŸ˜Č He đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œhas shared that 30 years ago, a full Terengganu old house 🏠 each cost of RM30K to 40K approximately 😊

How about now❓⁉

He đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ estimates RM300K & above each old house 🏠 at current. He đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ has no ❌ intention to resell any of his Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘 collected, though he đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ was being offered with great đŸ‘đŸ» prices đŸ’±đŸ’°couple of times in the past 😃

.

Hmm…Does Mr Alex đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œregret❓⁉

Personally SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ»can confidently said “No ❌” from her observation, Mr Alex’s achievements from Terrapuri Heritage Village & chat with himđŸ—ŁđŸ‘€ about his journey

Why❓⁉

You will be impressed as Mr Alex đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œis very knowledgeable & passionate ❀ in what he is doing for Terengganu old houses restoration & conservation 🏡🏘

.

Over the years, he đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œhopes to continue & enhancing his project as a tourism products, currently he đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œis running this Terrapuri Heritage Village as a boutique hotel resort space 🏡🏘 Owned a museum cafe dining đŸœđŸŽ (with advanced booking đŸ“žâ˜ŽïžđŸ“±for event etc.) & an upcoming Terramalai, a collection of traditional Malay houses 🏡🏘 from all over the states in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ & will be based in Batu Rakit, Kuala Nerus district of Terengganu 😁

After bought each houses 🏡🏘, all will be dismantled & then rebuilt. All Terengganu old houses 🏡🏘 were built without ❌ a single nail 🔹, it’s using the traditional “tebuk pasak” aka peg & joint technique with the help from the professional skillful Malay carpenters aka “tukang rumah” in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ‘s national language 😀

He đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œemphasised few times in his sharing “We have to always go back to our own root. Culture is so beautiful & unique not to be shared to next generations đŸ‘¶đŸ»đŸ‘§đŸ»đŸ§’đŸ»đŸ‘ŠđŸ»đŸ§‘đŸ»

He đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œhas shared that he was struggled 😱â˜čïžđŸ˜”to communicate, convince the house owners 👬👬👬 to sell đŸ’±đŸ’°their houses 🏡🏘 to him when he 1ïžâƒŁst started his heritage collection. Reason being he is a Chinese Peranakan, not a Muslim ❌â˜Ș He also proudly shared that he speaks fluent Terengganu Malay & this has helped a lot 😊

Once he đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œhas indentified ✅ the old house 🏠 that he is interested, he will slowly get to know the local house owner 1ïžâƒŁst. He is very persevere in his collection passion, he patiently kept visiting, communicating đŸ—ŁđŸ‘€ Then, after knowing him better & appreciate his passion ❀towards the Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘, the house owner will sell their old house to him đŸ’±đŸ’° eventually

Guess what❓⁉

There was an old house 🏠 that actually took him 15 years ✅🏡 after many many communications with the owner đŸ—ŁđŸ‘€ Wow‌đŸ˜Č It’s named as Rumah Pulau Bahagia in Terrapuri Heritage Village & yet to be ready as guest villa currently â˜ș

Mr Alex đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œhas actually collected the old houses 🏡🏘 for 18 years (all being dismantled & stored at the backyard of his parents đŸ‘”đŸ»đŸ‘ŽđŸ»house, on top of stones & covered with zinc to protect the chengal wood) before he bought this 4 ha land in 2005 which surrounding with islands 🏝🌮 & Setiu mangroves wetlands (Safe from tsunami 🌊 & chance to view fireflies đŸ’«âœšat night) in Kg. Mangkuk

He đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œwas discouraged đŸ‘ŽđŸ»by family members & friends đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź at the beginning that he shoud invest in other investment & not ❌ in restoration project. Also not in Terengganu as the location 📍that he has chosen ✅😃

Restoration requires for a long time frame & huge sum of money đŸ’°đŸ’” to maintain. He actually đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œsold off his luxury cars 🚗🚙 & properties before just to continue this restoration project. No any ❌ bank loan/ Government grant has obtained becasue this is a non profit/ business investment 🏡🏘

His passion ❀ in Terengganu old houses 🏡🏘restoration that motivates him to continue his journey till now, future & never end 😁

Question❓: Do you spot a smiling 😃 craving in below photođŸ“žâ“â‰ïž

Terengganu Traditional Malay Old Houses 🏡🏘

From her chat đŸ—ŁđŸ‘€ with Mr Alex, she đŸ‘©đŸ» has learnt that the balance ⚖ is important in Malay belief, hence the height & wide of each house 🏡 is required to have good đŸ‘đŸ» ukiran rumah aka house 🏠 measurement as it also meant for good đŸ‘đŸ» feng sui. To Mr Alex đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ, life is a balance too, not just about making money đŸ’°đŸ’”

The houses 🏡🏘 built with high legs to protect from flood & with aims to scard away the animals 🐘🩏🐅

The stairs (i.e. “tangga” in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ‘s national language) to each Malay house 🏠 must with an odd numbers eg. 3ïžâƒŁ, 5ïžâƒŁ, 7ïžâƒŁ etc.

.

She đŸ‘©đŸ» has learnt that there is meaning for Terengganu house 🏠 gate. She was told if you have bad intention (e.g. to rob the house owner) when you step 👣 into the house 🏠 , you may end up unable to see the house gate to exit thenđŸšȘ

Generally, the Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘 are with beautiful 😍😍 wall craving, Islamic â˜Ș influences, more to flora designs, some stupa are more towards Buddhism ⛩ No ❌ devil craving motives

There are 29 houses 🏡🏘 in this Terrapuri Heritage Village since 2012 i.e. 20 houses 🏡🏘 have been restored as guest villas & the remaining 9 houses serve as the resort reception, courtyard, spa, meeting room, library etc. â˜ș

Actually he đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ has bought đŸ’°đŸ’”đŸ’Ż over houses 🏡🏘, only 29 units in this village while the rest serves as spare parts as most houses 🏡🏘 bought are only 70% able to be used due to extensively damaged & had rotting wood
