Happy New Year 2019 to all πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜

This resort πŸ’πŸ›ŒπŸšΏπŸš½πŸ’¦πŸ’§ is not new, in fact it’s with quite a number of years since establishment. However, this recent visit & stay vacation was the 1️⃣st experience of her πŸ‘©πŸ»

It’s surrounding with the Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ ‘s largest manmade freshwater lake πŸ’¦πŸ’§ (7️⃣k acres) named Bukit Merah πŸžπŸ’¦πŸ’§ & approximately 3️⃣-hour drive 🚐 from Kuala Lumpur city & through Bukit Merah toll Exit 150 along the North-South Expressway πŸ›£

Room

After buffet lunch 🍽🍴@ Lelac Cafe, she πŸ‘©πŸ» went to check-in πŸ” with her media friend πŸ‘­to a standard hotel room πŸ›ŒπŸšΏπŸš½

A simple, clean yet comfy stay with toiletries available. There is no ❌ iron / hair dryer available in the hotel room πŸ›Œ

However, no wifi βŒπŸ“Ά network detection in the hotel room, though the wifi password was printed on the hotel room key πŸ”‘ ‘s envelope 😌

Frankly, the hotel rooms are considered quite well maintained πŸ‘ŒπŸ» since it’s an old resort since its establishment in 1995. More of its hotel room types & room information via 🌐 http://www.bukitmerahresort.com.my/laketown-hotel

It was an approximately return trip of 2️⃣km canoeing πŸ›Ά to Pak Tuan Island 🌴🏝& some of her male media friends πŸ‘¬πŸ‘¬πŸ‘¬πŸ‘¬ were participated & enjoyed the canoeing πŸ›Ά

SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» has joined her other female media friends πŸ‘­πŸ‘­ on a boat 🚀 to the island 🌴🏝

Yeah!‼️ Let’s enjoy picking & eating the rambutan πŸ˜‹πŸ€€ at this island 🌴🏝

This island 🌴🏝 is a fruit orchard, many rambutan trees 🌳🌳 , jackfruit trees as well as “ulam” plants 🌱🌿 named Ulam Cabang Tiga. Ulam means salad πŸ₯— in Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ ‘s national language. She πŸ‘©πŸ» is a vegetables πŸ₯¦πŸ₯’πŸ₯—πŸŒ½πŸ… & fruits πŸŽπŸŠπŸ‡πŸ“πŸŒ lovers (Most of her friends πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ called her “cow πŸ„πŸ‚” ~ eating green πŸ’šgrass 🌱🌿, Ha….Ha…πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜)

Orang Utan Island 🌴🏝

This island 🌴🏝 is formerly know as Pulau Panjang & it started since 22 Feb 2000 with 35 acre area. 15 acres of it has been set aside for this conservation πŸ’šπŸ’š initiative i.e. As an exhibit for rehabilitation endangered species with provision for further expansion for future phases πŸ’šπŸ’š

The Orang Utan i.e. meaning “man πŸ‘« (orang) of the forest 🌳🌳 (hutan)” in Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ ‘s national language ~ Bahasa Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡ΎΒ It exhibits a truly human-like mannerism in many facets of its behavior πŸ˜ƒ

Do enjoy a vblog πŸ“ΉπŸŽ₯with more information being captured from SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» ‘s 1️⃣st visit to this island 🌴🏝 recently ya

Impressive Bon Om Touk ~ Cambodian Water Festival 2018

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawingΒ πŸ‘©πŸ»Β is gonna sharing πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ“ here about her impressive 🀩 & unforgettable experience gained from the annualΒ CambodianΒ πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ Water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ Festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ, Phnom Penh, Cambodia πŸ‡°πŸ‡­

So, it was all started withΒ a short queue to get her πŸ‘©πŸ» cheap ⬇️ flight ticket ✈️ during the AirAsia BIG Xchange & BIG Fest event ❀️ in Sept (as shown in the short clip πŸ“ΉπŸŽ₯below). It was with only a limited choice of destinationsπŸ“πŸ“available

She πŸ‘©πŸ» has chosen βœ… for Phnom PenhΒ πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ under Lane B with a very 1️⃣st intention to meet & visit 1️⃣ of her girlfriend πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ who is working there as an expatriate currently. However, sadly 😟 that her friend πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ wasn’t around ❌ Phnom Penh πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ during her travel dates πŸ—“ Sigh…From a friend visitπŸ‘­, then she had it as 1️⃣ of her annual solo travelsss πŸŽ’πŸ§’πŸ•ΆπŸ‘Ÿ

πŸ’— ~ Everything Happens For A Reason ~ πŸ’—

Also initially she πŸ‘©πŸ» did plan to let go this solo trip because of a clash to a tourism event ~ MITA Sarawak, Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ that she πŸ‘©πŸ» has always supporting πŸ’ͺ🏻✌🏻the tourism authority 😊 in Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡ΎοΈ

Guess what❓⁉️

Her trip is gonna be during the annualΒ Cambodian πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ Water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ Festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠΒ named Bon Om ToukΒ in local Khmer language πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ from 21 Nov to 23 Nov 2018 πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ It also known as The Pirogue πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Racing Festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠΒ or Water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ & Moon πŸŒ‘ Festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ & Boat Racing πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

http://cambodia-tourism.org/plan-your-trip/events/cambodian-water-festival/

It was really a coincident‼️ Once she πŸ‘©πŸ»Β has decided βœ… to stay with this solo travel πŸŽ’πŸ•ΆπŸ§’πŸ‘Ÿ due to the complicated & difficult flight change 😟✈️ Also this gonna be her 1️⃣st visit to Phnom Penh, CambodiaΒ πŸ‡°πŸ‡­

This biggest celebrationΒ marks a 12th century naval victory with boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ racing along the Sisowath Quay πŸ’¦πŸ’§ with the boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ racing on the Tonle Sap River, in particular the area stretching from street 104 to street 178 of Phnom Penh city centre πŸ‡°πŸ‡­

Many hostels 🏑🏘, hotels 🏒, restaurants 🍽🍴 & bars πŸ₯‚πŸ»πŸΈaround this area ~ Very convenience for all visitors πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬

In the morning πŸ”…πŸ”† & before the race πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ starts during this 3️⃣-day festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽ€, the riverside & streets were much more peaceful 😌

Once the race starts around πŸ”Ÿam, the huge crowd πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« at the riverside will be observed πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»

However, in 2015 this celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ was cancelled ❌ due to the low ⬇️ water level πŸ’¦πŸ’§

Hurray‼️ She πŸ‘©πŸ» always wanna appreciating & experiencing a country’s tradition culture during her travels βœˆοΈπŸŽ’πŸ•ΆπŸ§’πŸ‘ŸΒ This is just so a lovely πŸ’“ coincidenceΒ πŸ˜‰

So, what’s this water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ festival πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰ all about❓⁉️

It’s a 3️⃣ days non-religious celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ & symbolised as an ancient appreciation πŸ™πŸ» for centuries to the river πŸ’¦πŸ’§for providing a source of livelihood to the farmers πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŒΎπŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŒΎ & fishermen 🐟🎣

Hmm…It’s a kind of local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ thanksgiving πŸ™ celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ

The Cambodian boat crews πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ were face forward. Many of the boat crews πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ were complemented with a colorfully-costumed lady πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈat the prow dancing to the beat of the drums πŸ₯πŸ₯

However, from her observation, majority of the boats now don’t really practising this tradition though. Hmm…From her 2️⃣ days visits to the festival, she only noticed for 2️⃣ boats with a colorfully-costumed lady πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ at the front of the boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

For the 1️⃣st 2️⃣ days, races πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ are run with 2️⃣ boats πŸ›ΆπŸ›Ά each, with the big race πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ happening on the last day, when all the boats πŸ›ΆπŸ›Ά take to the river πŸ’¦πŸ’§ to compete πŸ˜ƒ

There were carnival, rides, traditional music 🎼🎢🎡 performances, dances πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ•ΊπŸΌπŸ‘―β€β™€οΈπŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈπŸ•΄πŸ»etc. in the evening πŸ™πŸŒƒπŸŒŒ

There were many stall vendors, definitely food πŸ›πŸ²πŸ₯˜πŸ½πŸ΄& drink πŸ₯€πŸ»πŸ·πŸ₯‚πŸΈπŸΉoverflow on the streets, Khmer pop bands 🎼🎹🎧🎢🎡entertaining the crowds πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« etc.

Personally, she πŸ‘©πŸ» was impressed how the local vendors actually earn their living πŸ’°by selling drinks πŸ₯€& snacks πŸ₯‘🍰πŸ₯§πŸ₯ͺ to the huge crowds πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« at the riverside during the boat racing πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

There were approximately 300 boats πŸ›ΆπŸ›Ά with 19k pax of boat rowers πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ Wow!!

Hmm…πŸ€” How about the huge crowd πŸ‘­πŸ‘«πŸ‘¬attended for this 3️⃣-day festival celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ in Phnom Penh❓⁉️

IMG_4571.JPG

It was about 4.5million people πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« including expatriates, foreign visitors, local Khmers from all provinces etc. as shared at the closing ceremony 😁

Ohh yeah‼️ This year, 2018 i.e. The 3rd great successfull year with Cambodia πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ has handbuilt the world πŸŒπŸ—Ί ‘s longest rowing boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ at 87.3m long & 1.99m wide with cost of $60k. It was completed successfully πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» in Sept by more than 14k local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« in 192 days πŸ˜²πŸ˜ƒ

Guess what❓⁉️

Another Guinness World πŸŒπŸ—Ί Record πŸ† won (It’s the 5️⃣th one) by Cambodia πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ as this long dragon boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ is capable of carrying 179 boat rowers πŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈ on it‼️ Wowβ€ΌοΈπŸ˜² This great πŸ‘πŸ» news was anounced on 12 Nov at Prey Veng province of Phnom Penh πŸ‡°πŸ‡­

From her own experience, a few points πŸ“ŒπŸ“Œ to note if you’re interested to be at Phnom Penh or Siem Reap for this great πŸ‘πŸ» annual celebration πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰

Ohh ya…A pair of comfy shoes πŸ‘Ÿ is essentials βœ…Β because itΒ was vehicles free πŸ†“Β i.e. No public transport βŒπŸšŒπŸš•πŸš— 🚐 being available to theΒ festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ groundπŸ“, more details via 🌐 https://www.khmertimeskh.com/50551697/city-hall-issues-vehicle-ban-for-water-festival/

In this connection, the only option would be just getting around by your own foot πŸ‘£

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» got her sun β˜€οΈπŸŒž protection from theΒ πŸ†•Petal Velvet SunawayΒ SPF50 ordered & purchased πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ›’ fromΒ Althea KoreaΒ πŸ‡°πŸ‡· You must remember to put up your sunscreen to avoid sunburn

Photo 27-11-2018, 12 35 31 PM.jpg

Next, do bring an umbrella πŸŒ‚β˜‚ (You may loan it from your hotel, it can be a weapon if needed)/ wear a cap 🧒

Do dress up in a light modest clothing πŸ‘š to enjoy the boat πŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ race cheerings with the local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘« at the riverside under the hot sunny πŸ˜Žβ˜€οΈ day

Ohh ya…Do remember your refillable water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ bottle to avoid dehydration ya 😌

She πŸ‘©πŸ» was with the local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ on her 1️⃣st visit & then 2️⃣nd visit the next day at the designated area by Tourism Cambodia πŸ‡°πŸ‡­ for the foreign tourists πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«πŸ‘­Β (Served with free πŸ†“ flow of drinksπŸ₯€πŸ₯€available)

The riversides πŸ’¦πŸ’§ were extremely packed & crowded πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«πŸ‘­ with both the local Khmers πŸ‡°πŸ‡­πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ & foreign tourists to cheering for their favorite ❀️ boatsπŸš£πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš£πŸ»β€β™€οΈduring the races, so suggest you to bring only the bare necessities & hold on tight to what you have. Also being alert with your surroundings too while in the huge crowd πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«

Why❓⁉️

Hmm…You never know whether you will be being targetted by any pick-pockets/ bag-snatchers πŸ˜ˆπŸ‘Ώ whom may just roaming around the crowded festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ riversides πŸ’¦πŸ’§& streets. So, even thoughΒ this festival πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ is a free πŸ†“ celebration πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ , however it can get really expensive if you make a mistake by carrying valuables into the crowds πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«
