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‘€Â 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 actuallyÂ 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

Samut Sakhon ~ Hidden gem in Thailand đŸ‡č🇭

Hey all‌ How have you spent your 2018 year end break❓⁉

SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ»Â would like to sharing đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“ about her 2018 year end travelling đŸŽ’đŸ•¶đŸ‘ŸđŸ§ą with Take Me Tour, Thailand đŸ‡č🇭

Pick 1ïžâƒŁ ~ Samut Sakhon from Bangkok: Salt Farm Tour & Homemade Seafood ~ 

Yes ✅, she đŸ‘©đŸ» has booked đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ›’ more than a tour…do stay tune for her next blogging ya đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“

Actually not just a wide variety of day tours, Take Me Tour also providing private car 🚗🚙 airport transfer ✈, SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» has booked đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ›’âœ… for a few & really impressed đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ€© with its reliable, safe & comfy ride 🚗🚙 to/ from Don Mueang International Airport ✈

Do consider for your convenience especially with night 🌃🌌🛬 arrival ya

Before she đŸ‘©đŸ» has decided on this tour, she đŸ‘©đŸ» has read 📖 about the local expert of this said tour named Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ who has introduced herself as a wanderer in this small village & then become a close friend to many villagers đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź

TH4.JPG

During the tour, SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» has observed that Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ really having a great đŸ‘đŸ» relationship with the villagers đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« & communicating well đŸ—ŁđŸ‘„đŸ‘€đŸ‘„ with them. Definitely a strong healthy bonding đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ€ & friendship being built, bravo đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ» to her đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžâ€Œïž

She đŸ‘©đŸ» also truly believes that Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžhas chosen ✅ to lead this day tour to introduce to all guests đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘­đŸ‘« about this small village in a less travelled  province ~ Samut Sakhon, Thailand đŸ‡č🇭 i.e. from the salt water 💩💧 gate, mangrove forest 🌳🌳 , salt farm, home made seafoods đŸœđŸŽđŸŠ€đŸŠđŸŸ etc.

Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ also aims to help to boost âŹ†ïž the economy of this small village & increase âŹ†ïž the earning power 💰 of the villagers đŸ‘­đŸ‘«đŸ‘Ź here especially during the raining â˜”ïžđŸŒ§ season where most of the salt farmers here will be experiencing the low âŹ‡ïž salt harvesting

Hmm…How’s this day tour thoughout❓⁉

She đŸ‘©đŸ» woke up early that morning 🔅🔆 & went for a local Thai “bak kut teh” breakfast đŸ˜‹đŸ€€ , a non-halal dish ~ herb pork đŸ–đŸ·đŸœ soup đŸČđŸ„Ł served with riceÂ đŸ›đŸ˜‹đŸ€€ It’s just a stall outside of a local Thai đŸ‡čđŸ‡­đŸ‘«‘s home 🏠🏡 & within walking đŸš¶đŸ»â€â™€ïž distance from her hotel 🏱 named Bangkok Loft Inn 

This hotel 🏱 is located at📍55 Somdet Phra Chao Taksin Rd., Bangyeerua, Thonburi, Bangkok 10600, Thailand đŸ‡č🇭 A nice đŸ‘đŸ» comfy stay đŸ›ŒđŸšżđŸšœwith its strategic location📍 i.e. 5ïžâƒŁmins walking đŸš¶đŸ»â€â™€ïž distance to the Wongwian Yai BTS skytrain station 🚉, very convenient 🆗🆒 More details for your hotel booking đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ›’ via 🌐 http://www.bangkokloftinn.com/ 

After breakfast đŸœđŸŽđŸ˜‹đŸ€€, she đŸ‘©đŸ» then proceeded đŸš¶đŸ»â€â™€ïžto take the BTS skytrain 🚊 from Wongwian Yai station 🚉 Oppsss…Too early arrival 🔅🔆 at BTS station named Wutthakat 🚉, not because of the time difference ya…

Yes✅, she was about 1ïžâƒŁ hour early from meet up @ 9ïžâƒŁam to meet up with Khun HansaÂ đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ as stated in her Take Me Tour booking 📌 Just too excited 😆 for the day tour, Ha…Ha…Don’t laugh 😆😂 at her ya

Yeah‌ A very niceÂ đŸ‘đŸ»Â morning 🔅🔆 view with river 💩💧, long boatÂ đŸ›¶Â & wat ⛩ from the BTS station 🚇 during her wait for the meet up đŸ‘©đŸ»đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïž

Hmm…She đŸ‘©đŸ» was a bit lazy, else she would have walkđŸš¶đŸ»â€â™€ïžto visit this wat  ⛩ nearby that morning 🔅🔆 Instead she đŸ‘©đŸ» seated down in the BTS station 🚉 & then logged in to her social medias đŸ“± & catching up with her friends & family members đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹÂ with her new 🆕  Thai simcard named DTAC , more details via 🌐 https://www.dtac.co.th/en/move-to-dtac/

Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ was early to arrive too, so both đŸ‘©đŸ»đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïž then started this day tour slightly early that the scheduled time of 9ïžâƒŁam

Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ is so friendly & shares the same travel passion as SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ», hence lots of common interest to chit chat đŸ—ŁđŸ‘€ about during their approximately 30mins journey 🚙 to Samut Sakhon province, also known by the locals as “Maha Chai” 😀

Both happily 😃 exchanged lots of respective travel stories, always a nice đŸ‘đŸ» meet & catch up with a travel lover during travel journeys 😁

As you have reading 📖 her earlier blogging đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“ here, she đŸ‘©đŸ» has visited plenty of mangrove parks 🌳🌳 in her home country ~ Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ

Oppsss…The mudskippers 🐟🐟 here are fat & huge, it was high tides 🌊 during her visit, so not able ❌ to note the colourful Hermit crabs 🐚🩀crawling on the muddy field 😌â˜ș

Not to missed a visit to its mini museum / perhaps more to a conservation project centre 💚💚 with a collection of whale 🐋🐳 skeletons, details about some small animals lived in this forest 🌳🌳 before as well as some its on-going marine conservation initiatives 🌊💚💚 here i.e. mangrove trees planting 🌳🌳, a bamboo 🎍🎋 border project to avoid further water 💩💧 & soil erosion to this forest 🌳🌳 etc.

These eco 💚💚 sustainable initiatives aim to buidling the bamboo borders 🎍🎋 within the mangrove forest 🌳🌳 were observed by SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» during her visit to protect the mangroves 🌳 being sapling from the sea waves 🌊 ‘ destruction, then soil erosion 😧đŸ˜Č🙃

Khun Hansa đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïžÂ also into eco tourism 💚 & a green person as SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ», so they have more conversational topics đŸ—ŁđŸ‘€ Ha…Ha…it’s rare to meet a new friend đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïž with similar travel & conservation passionate 😉

Everything happens for a reason, then this Take Me Tour booking đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ›’âœ… has now fulfilled 🆒🆗 her wish to visit a salt farm, so happy đŸ˜ƒâ€Œïž

Salt farming is seasonal & visiting during the dry season between January to April would capture the best view đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ˜

Sea water 💩💧 is 1ïžâƒŁst being pumping into the farms.  Then, the sea water 💩💧will be evaporated over a period of time, the layers of salt will be manually collected by the salt farmers đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź

Impressive Bon Om Touk ~ Cambodian Water Festival 2018

Yeah‌ SiennyLovesDrawingÂ đŸ‘©đŸ»Â is gonna sharing đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“ here about her impressive đŸ€© & unforgettable experience gained from the annual Cambodian 🇰🇭 Water 💩💧 Festival 🎉🎊, Phnom Penh, Cambodia 🇰🇭

So, it was all started with a short queue to get her đŸ‘©đŸ» cheap âŹ‡ïž flight ticket ✈ during the AirAsia BIG Xchange & BIG Fest event ❀ in Sept (as shown in the short clip đŸ“čđŸŽ„below). It was with only a limited choice of destinations📍📍available

She đŸ‘©đŸ» has chosen ✅ for Phnom Penh 🇰🇭 under Lane B with a very 1ïžâƒŁst intention to meet & visit 1ïžâƒŁ of her girlfriend đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïž who is working there as an expatriate currently. However, sadly 😟 that her friend đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™€ïž wasn’t around ❌ Phnom Penh 🇰🇭 during her travel dates 🗓 Sigh…From a friend visit👭, then she had it as 1ïžâƒŁ of her annual solo travelsss đŸŽ’đŸ§ąđŸ•¶đŸ‘Ÿ

💗 ~ Everything Happens For A Reason ~ 💗

Also initially she đŸ‘©đŸ» did plan to let go this solo trip because of a clash to a tourism event ~ MITA Sarawak, Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ that she đŸ‘©đŸ» has always supporting đŸ’ȘđŸ»âœŒđŸ»the tourism authority 😊 in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿïž

Guess what❓⁉

Her trip is gonna be during the annual Cambodian 🇰🇭 Water 💩💧 Festival 🎉🎊 named Bon Om Touk in local Khmer language 🇰🇭 from 21 Nov to 23 Nov 2018 😃😁 It also known as The Pirogue đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž Racing Festival 🎉🎊 or Water 💩💧 & Moon 🌑 Festival 🎉🎊 & Boat Racing đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž

It was really a coincident‌ Once she đŸ‘©đŸ»Â has decided ✅ to stay with this solo travel đŸŽ’đŸ•¶đŸ§ąđŸ‘Ÿ due to the complicated & difficult flight change đŸ˜ŸâœˆïžÂ Also this gonna be her 1ïžâƒŁst visit to Phnom Penh, Cambodia 🇰🇭

This biggest celebration marks a 12th century naval victory with boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž racing along the Sisowath Quay 💩💧 with the boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž racing on the Tonle Sap River, in particular the area stretching from street 104 to street 178 of Phnom Penh city centre 🇰🇭

Many hostels 🏡🏘, hotels 🏱, restaurants đŸœđŸŽ & bars đŸ„‚đŸ»đŸžaround this area ~ Very convenience for all visitors đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź

In the morning 🔅🔆 & before the race đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž starts during this 3ïžâƒŁ-day festival 🎉🎀, the riverside & streets were much more peaceful 😌

Once the race starts around 🔟am, the huge crowd đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« at the riverside will be observed đŸ˜ƒđŸ‘đŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ»

However, in 2015 this celebration 🎉🎊 was cancelled ❌ due to the low âŹ‡ïž water level 💩💧

Hurray‌ She đŸ‘©đŸ» always wanna appreciating & experiencing a country’s tradition culture during her travels âœˆïžđŸŽ’đŸ•¶đŸ§ąđŸ‘ŸÂ This is just so a lovely 💓 coincidence 😉

So, what’s this water 💩💧 festival 🎊🎉 all about❓⁉

It’s a 3ïžâƒŁ days non-religious celebration 🎉🎊 & symbolised as an ancient appreciation đŸ™đŸ» for centuries to the river 💩💧for providing a source of livelihood to the farmers đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸŒŸđŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸŒŸ & fishermen 🐟🎣

Hmm…It’s a kind of local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź thanksgiving 🙏 celebration 🎉🎊

The Cambodian boat crews đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž were face forward. Many of the boat crews đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž were complemented with a colorfully-costumed lady đŸ’đŸ»â€â™€ïžat the prow dancing to the beat of the drums đŸ„đŸ„

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

For the 1ïžâƒŁst 2ïžâƒŁ days, races đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž are run with 2ïžâƒŁ boats đŸ›¶đŸ›¶ each, with the big race đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž happening on the last day, when all the boats đŸ›¶đŸ›¶ take to the river 💩💧 to compete 😃

There were carnival, rides, traditional music đŸŽŒđŸŽ¶đŸŽ” performances, dances đŸ’ƒđŸ»đŸ•șđŸŒđŸ‘Żâ€â™€ïžđŸ‘Żâ€â™‚ïžđŸ•ŽđŸ»etc. in the evening 🏙🌃🌌

There were many stall vendors, definitely food 🍛đŸČđŸ„˜đŸœđŸŽ& drink đŸ„€đŸ»đŸ·đŸ„‚đŸžđŸčoverflow on the streets, Khmer pop bands đŸŽŒđŸŽčđŸŽ§đŸŽ¶đŸŽ”entertaining the crowds đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« etc.

Personally, she đŸ‘©đŸ» was impressed how the local vendors actually earn their living 💰by selling drinks đŸ„€& snacks đŸ„ĄđŸ°đŸ„§đŸ„Ș to the huge crowds đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« at the riverside during the boat racing đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž

There were approximately 300 boats đŸ›¶đŸ›¶ with 19k pax of boat rowers đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž Wow!!

Hmm…đŸ€” How about the huge crowd đŸ‘­đŸ‘«đŸ‘Źattended for this 3ïžâƒŁ-day festival celebration 🎉🎊 in Phnom Penh❓⁉

IMG_4571.JPG

It was about 4.5million people đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« 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 🇰🇭 has handbuilt the world 🌍đŸ—ș ‘s longest rowing boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž at 87.3m long & 1.99m wide with cost of $60k. It was completed successfully đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ‘đŸ»đŸ™ŒđŸ» in Sept by more than 14k local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« in 192 days đŸ˜Č😃

Guess what❓⁉

Another Guinness World 🌍đŸ—ș Record 🏆 won (It’s the 5ïžâƒŁth one) by Cambodia 🇰🇭 as this long dragon boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž is capable of carrying 179 boat rowers đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž on it‌ Wow‌đŸ˜Č This great đŸ‘đŸ» news was anounced on 12 Nov at Prey Veng province of Phnom Penh 🇰🇭

From her own experience, a few points 📌📌 to note if you’re interested to be at Phnom Penh or Siem Reap for this great đŸ‘đŸ» annual celebration 🎊🎉

Ohh ya…A pair of comfy shoes 👟 is essentials ✅ because it was vehicles free 🆓 i.e. No public transport ❌🚌🚕🚗 🚐 being available to the festival 🎉🎊 ground📍, 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 👣

Yeah‌ SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» got her sun â˜€ïžđŸŒž protection from the 🆕 Petal Velvet Sunaway SPF50 ordered & purchased đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ›’ from Althea KoreaÂ đŸ‡°đŸ‡· 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 🌂☂ (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 👚 to enjoy the boat đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž race cheerings with the local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« at the riverside under the hot sunny đŸ˜Žâ˜€ïž day

Ohh ya…Do remember your refillable water 💩💧 bottle to avoid dehydration ya 😌

She đŸ‘©đŸ» was with the local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź on her 1ïžâƒŁst visit & then 2ïžâƒŁnd visit the next day at the designated area by Tourism Cambodia 🇰🇭 for the foreign tourists đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«đŸ‘­Â (Served with free 🆓 flow of drinksđŸ„€đŸ„€available)

The riversides 💩💧 were extremely packed & crowded đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«đŸ‘­ with both the local Khmers đŸ‡°đŸ‡­đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź & foreign tourists to cheering for their favorite ❀ boatsđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž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 đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«

Why❓⁉

Hmm…You never know whether you will be being targetted by any pick-pockets/ bag-snatchers 😈👿 whom may just roaming around the crowded festival 🎉🎊 riversides 💩💧& streets. So, even though this festival 🎉🎊 is a free 🆓 celebration 🎉🎊 , however it can get really expensive if you make a mistake by carrying valuables into the crowds đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘«

Always better be safe then sorry ya â˜șïžđŸ˜‰

There were several types of rowing đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž styles observed from her visits, i.e. sitting down & manual rowing, standing up & manual rowing, standing up & auto rowing etc. She đŸ‘©đŸ» is curious đŸ€” how the marks will be allocate within each different styles as well as the determining factors of winning 🏆🎖 too❓⁉

Perhaps logically the shortest time 🕛 of completion from the start till end time of each boat at the finishing line (The 2ïžâƒŁ red ❀ boats đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïž as captured in the photo 📾 & vBlog đŸ“čđŸŽ„below)

There were live announcement during the boat racing đŸšŁđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸšŁđŸ»â€â™€ïž, however in local Khmer 🇰🇭 language & ❌ no English translation. It would be good to have a live English announcement in the next year festival onwards ya 😊

The King Norodom Sihamoni đŸ€ŽđŸ», Prime Minister Hun Sen đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’Œ& some senior officials đŸ™‹đŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸ’đŸ»â€â™‚ïž have all attended the closing ceremony on the last day of this festival 🎉🎊 She đŸ‘©đŸ» has observed from the TV screen đŸ“ș at the foreign visitors designated booth

Ohh ya…She đŸ‘©đŸ» has enjoyed the longest & the pretty đŸ˜đŸ€© fireworks 🎆🎇 so far from the closing ceremony of this water festival 🎉🎊
