Personally, she loves ❀ the butterfly 🊋 tea 🍵 the most, not just because of its purple 💜 colour, but its taste too 😘

IMG-20180419-WA0010.jpg

Hmm…So sad 😞 that she forgot to get a packet 🛒🛍 of butterfly 🊋 tea 🍵 home 🏡 😭

4 The Potting Shed

Yeah‌ “Green 💚 Fingers” is a myth 🙃

As you all are aware, different plants 🌱🌿require a different admixture of the planting media, then the plants will glow & blossom, green 💚 fingers or not 😊

Some of the herbs planting 🌱🌿within the garden,

Ohh ya…She loves ❀ the interactive 🗣👥👀👥session at this plot where she got an enjoyable learning & hands on experience in planting 🌱🌿

Yeah‌ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 was recently invited 📩💌 by @NSTGA & joined together the FAM trip to explore & discover Negeri Sembilan🇲🇟

Guess what❓⁉

This was her 1⃣st time travelling 🎒🕶🧢👟 with so so many tour guides 👫👭👬, nice meeting all & really appreciate the great friendships 🀝 gained from this trip 😃

Negeri Sembilan is not just with widely known Port Dickson beach 🏖🏝 , she has explored some hidden gems 💎💎 during her recent trip 😝😎

Ohh…Where & what❓⁉

1⃣ of the gems 💎💎 recently discovered by her is Kenaboi State Park (FKA Taman Alam Liar Negeri) 🏞🌳🌳

Wow‌ Awesome coincident‌😁

Guess what❓⁉

She has just read 👓 about it from The Sun Daily 🗞📰 in March & she has then visited it in April 😉

http://www.thesundaily.my/news/2018/03/13/hidden-gem-jelebu

This park 🏞 is located 📍in the Kenaboi Forest Reserve🌳🌳, Jelebu which constitutes Hill Dipterocarp Forest. It overlooks the rainforest 🌳🌳 landscape, adjoining the Titiwangsa mountain ⛰ range in Pahang at north, as well as the borders of states Pahang & Selangor 😊

Photo 04-05-2018, 7 07 31 PM.jpg

If you are 1⃣ of the many nature lovers 💚💚, you will enjoy your time to experience this unspoilt greenery 🏞🌳🌳 of Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan 🇲🇟

Your next holiday destination for sure‌😄

It’s with limited network reception📶, so you will enjoy a peaceful & private me time during your visit. A perfect place to hide from the constant hustle & bustle city 🌆🏙 lifestyle as well as without any phone calls 📞☎📱disturbance 😀

Ohh ya…So what’s the exciting bit of this place❓⁉

Photo 18-04-2018, 7 55 31 PM.jpg

She truly enjoyed the river 💊💧 trekking 🚶🏻‍♀🚶🏻‍♂, tubing at Kenaboi river 💊💧, night 🌃🌌 jungle 🌳🌳 walk 🚶🏻‍♀🚶🏻‍♂& a camping 🏕🏕 overnight here

Hmm…How to access 📍to this state park 🏞❓⁉

This park 🏞 has began to be discovered in 1990 by 4×4 extreme sport activities through the Jemaloi Valley 🏞 of Negeri Sembilan 🇲🇟

True enough, she has transferred to ride on 4×4 after a coach 🚌 ride with her friends 👫👭👬 to get through the bumpy & potholes road 🛣& then arrived at the base camp site 🏕🏕

Dropped off luggages 🎒💌👜 at tent ⛺ & captured 📞 a group photo 1⃣st before the river 💊💧trekking 🚶🏻‍♂🚶🏻‍♀

Frankly, it’s quite a challenging 🙃 river 💊💧trekking 🚶🏻‍♀🚶🏻‍♂ i.e. hiking through the streams to reach to Jeram Berungut 🏞

It’s definitely worth your sweatsss 💊💊 as you will be amazed with breathtaking 🀩😍 views of the river 💊💧canyons as well as cool & crystal clear waters as the reward 😃

Since the river 💊💧trekking 🚶🏻‍♀🚶🏻‍♂was started at late noon 🔅& due to unfavourable weather 🌊🌧, she has yet ❌ to reach & view the well known approximately 93m high Lata Kijang waterfall with all her friends👭👬👫 Nevermind, will keep this in her travel bucket list then 😆

After the river 💊💧trekking🚶🏻‍♂🚶🏻‍♀, she has continued with tubing at the Kenaboi river 💊💧

Just so so relaxing 😌 & not ❌ to be missed ya!! You will feel your mind, body & soul just flow naturally & freely down the river. Amazing!!

Ha…Ha…Her tubing journey was being captured 📞 by the officer of Forestry Department, Negeri Sembilan 😅😂🀣

It was really an awesome 😎👏🏻 day to get close with green 💚💚 nature‌😃 Do enjoy a video clip 📹🎥 captured by her for sharing here,

A cosy comfy night 🌃🌃 at camp ⛺🏕 stay, not to worry, there are proper shower 🚿 & washroom 🚜

Photo 04-05-2018, 7 08 35 PM.jpg

Hmm…The uniqueness of this park 🏞 includes its rich variety of floral 🌳🌲🌱🌿 cum plants e.g. orchids herbs, ferns, palm trees etc., the abundant waterfalls of the Kering River 💊💧 i.e. the tributary of the Kenaboi River 💊💧which often being associated with the local believed myth of the injured deer 🊌 falling into the waterfall. Yes ✅, hence the name of the waterfalls of Lata Kijang Waterfalls 😀

There are approximately 3⃣ indigenous people villages within this park & namely as Tohor Village, London Village & Nap Village. However, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has yet ❌ to visit to any of these villages during her recent short trip to this park 🏞

So, what are you waiting for❓⁉

Let’s plan for a green 💚💚 getaway with aims to destress 😌 with a great change of green 💚scenery & fresh air 🌬You will definitely recharged‌😃

Terengganu International Squid Jigging Festival ðŸ‡²ðŸ‡Ÿ

Yeah‌ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 about her recent 1⃣st experience of squid 🊑🊑 jigging aka candat sotong in Malaysia’s 🇲🇟 national language

Where❓⁉

It’s at Terengganu state of Malaysia 🇲🇟 ~ Beautiful Terengganu ~ 😍🀩

It was an exclusive media invitation 📩📧💌 from Tourism Malaysia 🇲🇟 to join its recreation club annual family trip 🀗😊

IMG_3068.jpg

Hmm
What’s squid 🊑🊑 jigging 🎣❓⁉

This was exactly the 1⃣st question ❓she had in her mind 💭 when she 1⃣st read the invitation 📩📧💌 received 🀔

Ohh…SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 with her so called “fisher-woman” look 😉 (she loves her orange Malaysia batiksarong) for this festival 🎉🎊 participation, pretty 😍 right❓⁉

IMG_3529.jpg

Hmm
She was told it’s a technique of catching squid 🎣🊑🊑 by using a colorful artificial bait. Ohh ya
The colorful artificial baits actually glow in the dark, that’s how the squid 🊑🊑 will then easily got attracted to. When the bait is being dropped down & sank to the bottom of the sea 🌊 bed, a rope will then raise up. Then, advisable to keep both pull up ⬆ & pull down ⬇ the rope as this helps to attract the attention of the squid 🊑 🊑

She yet to touch the bait herself during her recent jigging 🎣 participation, so googled 👩🏻‍💻🌐 to share how colourful the baits are 😀

Ohh…Why❓⁉ Do read 📖 on to find out ya 😉

bait.jpg

Guess what❓⁉

This candat sotong 🎣🊑🊑 is also the daily activity of many local people 👫👭👬 or fishermen 🚀🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂ in Terengganu to earn a living 💰 However, it has been being commercialised by the Tourism Terengganu since 1991 as 1⃣ of the Terengganu’s tourism attractions📍

Curious 🀔 when to enjoy this squid jigging🎣🊑🊑❓⁉

This jigging 🎣 activity is seasonal & usually around the last week of March till July each year i.e. when the monsoon season ends / monsoon winds 🌬💚🌊 towards the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia 🇲🇟 The appropriate time 🕔 to be out at sea for it would be advisable between 5⃣pm to 6⃣am. At night 🌃🌌, lightings 💡💡from the boats 🚀🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂ are extremely important to catch the attention of the squid 🊑🊑 & to attract them to swim 🊑🊑 towards the boat 🚀🚣🏻‍♂🚣🏻‍♀

IMG_3530.jpg

So, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has witnessed the official launch 🎉🎊 of this 2018 Terengganu International Squid 🊑🊑 Jigging 🎣 Festival

Interestingly, the launch 🎉🎊 was quite special by using some fake squid 🊑🊑 for the special guest, Menteri Besar Terengganu👚🏟‍💌~ Yang Amat Berhormat Dato’ Seri Haji Ahmad Razif bin Abdul Rahman to demonstrate to all the participants on how to candat sotong (or the right way) 🎣🊑🊑 that evening 🏙

After the launch 🎉🎊, she was then being arranged to be in a boat 🚀 with 8⃣ members 👭👬👬👬 (i.e. the max legal no. of pax in the fishing boat 🚀 as listed on its fishing license 📋). Most of the boats 🚀🚀 were with late departure due to the unfavourable weather 🌊☁🌫 & boats 🚀🚀 traffic jam that evening 🏙 from Batin Village Jetty ⚓

IMG_3567IMG_3583

For this 2018 fetsival 🎉🎊, there were approximately of total 220 participants 👫👭👬 including media members & all being allocated into 22 boats 🚀🚀 Wow‌ A big crowd‌😲 That’s why the jetty ⚓ was experiencing boats 🚀🚀 traffic jam to anchor & pick up all the participants 👬👭👫

IMG_3562.jpg

Yeah‌ Flag off 🇲🇟

Then, the boats 🚀 were sailing towards the candat sotong 🎣🊑🊑 location at Marang which supposedly for another 1.5 hours sail 🚀🌊 journey. Most of the time, long hours are required i.e. at least 6⃣ hours & more in the middle of the sea 🌊🌊

So, if your trip with some females members 👭👭👭, would advise to hire a bigger boat 🛥 which with proper shower 🚿 & toilet 🚜 facilities

Hmm
She was well taken care by her travel mates 👭👫👬 to consume a piece of the motion sickness pill 💊 before the boat trip 🚀🎣🊑🊑 This is a precaution to avoid suffering seasickness 😰🌊 (unstable headache, nausea etc.) especially when the boat 🚀 anchor down ⚓ for the squid jigging 🎣🊑🊑 location 📍 & coupled with sea waves 🌊🌊 & boating boats 🚀 in the middle of the ocean 🌊

IMG_3503.jpg

Sigh
Quite disappointing for a 1⃣st timer like her. The luck 🍀 was not really with her & her boat mates 👭👬👬👬 that evening🏙, the weather was unfavourable ☁🌊🌫 It was with strong sea waves 🌊🌊 especially when the boat 🚀 was sailing ventured towards the middle of the ocean 🌊 to reach to Marang, the squid jigging 🎣🊑🊑 location📍

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

However, personally she 👩🏻 thinks what’s more important was the experience gained. She respect the decision made by the boat 🚀 captain 👚‍✈ of not ventured further towards the strong sea waves 🌊🌊 that night 🌃🌌 Safety of all boat mates 👭👬👬👬 more important & there is always a next time 🀗☺

~ Everything happens for a reason ~

There were 3⃣ boats 🚀 🚀 🚀 that unable to enjoy the squid 🊑🊑 jigging 🎣 fun due to the strong sea waves 🌊🌊 that night 🌃🌌

Do enjoy a full video clip 📹🎥 captured from her 1⃣st squid 🊑🊑 jigging 🎣 participation, the strong sea waves 🌊🌊 was being captured too 😌

Some tips shared by her travel mates 👭👬👫 learnt from their successful squid 🊑🊑 jigging 🎣 participations in this recent trip to avoid seasickness 😰🌊

  1. Consume motion sickness pill 💊 at least 1⃣ or 2⃣ hours before boat departure 🚀🚣🏻‍♀🚣🏻‍♂
  2. Before the boat departure 🚀🚣🏻‍♂🚣🏻‍♀, advisable to avoid heavy meal🍜🍎, spicy 🌶 / oily foods etc.
  3. While on board in the boat🚀, do avoid seating at the boat engine diesel smoke 💚 area (usually the back of the boat)
  4. During the boat sailing 🚀🌊 or anchor ⚓ moment, do avoid your eye contact 👀 or eye concentrating 👁 to the sea waves 🌊🌊 Do always have your eyes 👀👁 look far ahead
  5. If starting to feel dizzy 😵/ discomfort 😰🌊, do lye down & try to sleep 😎💀 if possible
  6. If feel like to vomit 🀢🀮 / throw out 😰🌊, just do it, no need to feel shy ☺

If you are interested, do check out for a boat 🚀 hire which depending on the boat size, the facilities provided e.g. with jigging 🎣 equipment available, shower 🚿 cum toilet 🚜 facilities, kitchen facilities, meals 🍜🍎etc.

Ohh ya
She 👩🏻 was told usually the dinner 🍎 🍜 will be prepared by the boat 🚀 owner 👚‍✈upon your boat 🚀 hire. The dinner menu 🍜 of course the fresh squid 🊑🊑 from the ocean 🌊 as main dish for the night 🌃🌌

Hmm
Even though herself & her boat mates 👭👬👬👬 weren’t able to sail 🚀🌊 to Marang for the night 🌃🌌 & enjoyed the supposedly squid 🊑🊑 jigging 🎣 fun 😌🙃

Guess what❓⁉

Still got chance to enjoy the big squid 🊑🊑 No should say huge squid 🊑🊑 BBQ 🔥 feast as dinner 🍜🍎😋🀀

Frankly, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is not really a squid 🊑🊑 lover 😘💗 (as you all know from her food blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 here, she loves prawns 😘🊐🊐), however that night 🌃🌌 she truly enjoyed very much the BBQ squid feast 🔥🊑🊑🍜🍎

IMG_3614.jpg

The local people 👭👬👫 has recommended her to taste the BBQ squid 🔥🊑🊑 with the special homemade spicy 🌶 sauce prepared, however she didn’t ❌ dip it at all. She prefers the natural sweetness from the fresh squid 🊑🊑 itself with some salty taste from the sea 🌊 water 💊 💧 So so tasty delicious 😋🀀

She really missed the superb yummy 😋🀀 taste of the huge fresh squid while blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 her experience here though
Ha

So many matters happened since 6⃣ May when SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has rushed back from her working tripsss to attend 2⃣ friends’ wedding 👰🏻👰🏻 ceremonies supposedly (meant to be a surprise to both of her friends 👫👭👬). However, early morning 🔅🔆 of 6⃣ May, received a phone call📱that her big uncle 👚🏻(mama👵🏻’s family) has passed away 😢😭

Sigh…Whole family members 👫👭👬 then rushed to Pahang to be with the big uncle👚🏻’s family, helped for the wake preparation & attendance till 8⃣ May. She 👩🏻 really missed this big uncle 👚🏻 so much as since young, he 👚🏻 always bought him books 📚 & stationeries ✏📝🖍🖌🎚 whenever he 👚🏻 came to KL to visiting her family back then 😌

May you rest in peace, “dua gu” (big uncle 👚🏻 in Hokkien dialect)

Then, rushed back to KL as whole family went for #GE14 #509 as a responsible Malaysians 🇲🇟

~ Everything happens for a reason ~

A better Malaysia 🇲🇟

Life is short‌ Seizing moment ya ☺✌🏻

The 8 Wonders of Johor!

Still remember 💭 Johor state, Malaysia 🇲🇟 is the 1⃣st 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 8⃣ wonders recently visited by SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 at Johor ~ the Southern gateway into Malaysia 🇲🇟 ❓⁉

(i) Zeromile aka Kilometre Zero0⃣

What’s it meant for❓⁉

It’s also written as KM0⃣ 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 0⃣ is located right in front of the Johor Bahru General Post Office 📮 at Jalan Ibrahim Sultan. It’s 1⃣ of the rare cases where the zeromile 0⃣ 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 0⃣ 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 1⃣st experiential Parliament 🏢 & open to the public 😄

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is really impressed 😍🀩 & truly appreciate the different architectural designs of this building 🏢 from her recent 1⃣st 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
