#TravelogueMalaysia: A Day to explore heritage @ Johor Bahru (JB)

After morning 🔆🔅 breakfast 🍽☕️ from Amari Hotel JB 🧡🏢(Do stay tune for her next stay vacation 🛌🛀🏻🚿 blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 ya), SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 & her writers gang 👫👭👬 have decided for a day to exploring the heritage of old town JB 🇲🇾

It was started with a morning 🔆🔅heritage walk 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️Yeah‼️

A mixed feeling 😃😌 while walking 🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️down the memory lane of the old town here, why❓⁉️

Photo 29-01-2018, 11 09 13 AM.jpg

Some of the old shops are really well maintained👍🏻, including still operating the businesses as inherited, while some actually have transformed to modern faces 🏢… Her personal thought 💭 , it would be good 👍🏻 if all old buildings are maintained as its origin as possible though☺️

However, she also well received ☺️ that town evolution is unavoidable too…Hmm…Happy 😃 that old town JB is still not too bad in its heritage maintenance thus far. Bravo‼️👍🏻👏🏻

So, she was impressed 🤩 with 1️⃣ of the old business which stay from the olden days till now😲

On-The-Go With Aiken Antibacterial Wipes

Hmm…If you are observant 👀 enough, you will note SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is an existing user of Aiken’s products. She uses its shower 🛀🏻🚿creme & enjoys the smell & moisturising skin after her shower 🛀🏻🚿

Do refer to the last photo 📸 shared in her Colgate Natural’s user experience 👩🏻‍💻📝shared earlier😀

https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2017/12/29/colgate-naturals/

img_2421.jpg

Yes, it was captured 📸 from her bathroom. Erm…It’s not a sexy photo ya 😅😂🤣

So, she is gonna sharing her recent on-the-go ğŸšğŸŽ’ğŸ•¶ğŸ§¢ğŸ‘Ÿ experience with the new Aiken Antibacterial Wipes here…She just came back from Southern Malaysia 🇲🇾 ~ Malacca & Johor state

FB_IMG_1518503477747.jpg

You may ask why Aiken❓⁉️

It’s because Aiken is 1️⃣ of the trusted name in antibacterial personal care products for the past 3️⃣ decades. SiennyLovesDrawing mama’s 👵🏻favourite ❤️ household branding (That’s why she 👩🏻 is using the shower 🛀🏻🚿gel) as it eliminates ⬇️ 99.9% of harmful bacteria effectively (Extremely relevant & important with a new family member in the house currently ~ her little niece👶🏻 Yeah‼️ She is 4️⃣ months old now 😃😍)

Photo 11-02-2018, 10 19 01 PM.jpg

The great user experience continues with her & she travels with 2️⃣ packets of its new antibacterial wipes i.e. Extra Protection & Extra Moisturising in her travel pouch👛‼️ These wipes definitely help to reduce ⬇️ the transmission of harmful bacteria which are invisible to the naked eye 👁👁 yet a constant presence; germs & bacteria live in, on & around us. So, 1️⃣ of the effective ways of preventing encounter with germs & bacteria is keeping our hands clean & sanitized😊

Extra Protection

Photo 11-02-2018, 10 25 40 PM.jpg

It’s formulated with tea 🍃tree 🌳 oil for its natural purifying & antibacterial benefits to enhance protection. It instantly refreshes & cleanses the skin from impurities & excess oil, leaving skin feeling ultra-clean, soft & refreshingly scented. Dermatologically tested, these antibacterial wipes are safe to use & are 💯 % alcohol-free❌🍾🍺

Photo 11-02-2018, 10 26 26 PM.jpg

She observes from how she supplies the wipes to her mama 👵🏻 e.g. while she needs to wipe grocery cart 🛒 / shopping basket handle in hypermarkets 🏢 (Her mama 👵🏻 quite an OCD for cleanliness), after selecting perishable items e.g. fish 🐟 , meat 🥩 , vegetables 🌶🌽🍅 & fruits 🍇🍈🍉 in wet markets etc. Yes ✅, she accompanies her mama 👵🏻 for fresh items & grocery shopping 🛒 ☺️

Photo 11-02-2018, 10 29 37 PM.jpg

Her papa 👴🏻 would then prefer a wipe from her when he just done at the petrol ⛽️ pump whereby a wash basin is not within reach. Definitely an antibacterial wipe be a viable protection alternative till her papa 👴🏻 gets around to washing his hands then👍🏻

Extra Moisturising

Photo 11-02-2018, 10 22 41 PM

It’s enriched with Aloe Vera to moisture & soothe skin & yet kills 99.9% of harmful bacteria, leaving skin feeling smooth, fresh & moisturised. These wipes are made of soft textured fabric that gently cleanses without any discomfort. It leaves skin feeling fresh with a delightful & pleasant scent🤩👍🏻

Photo 11-02-2018, 10 22 41 PM.jpg

Personally, she prefers this 1️⃣ more. So, either in the vehicle 🚗 or her backpack ğŸŽ’ (sometimes sling bag 💼 ), this extra moisturising wipes provide her with an instant sanitizing purposes during her outdoor activities, travelling, dining🍽🍴, public toilets 🚽🚾🚺 (sometimes her mama 👵🏻 using it as baby 👶🏻 wipes for her niece) etc.😁

Photo 11-02-2018, 10 21 08 PM.jpg

So, these AIKEN Antibacterial Wipes are 💯% alcohol-free❌🍾🍺, dermatologically tested & safe for use by the whole family 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 & for both indoor & outdoor👍🏻

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 loves ❤️ the thickness & elastic of each wipe for her travel usage or whenever travelling/ on the go with her papa 👴🏻 & mama👵🏻 Absolutely convenience & keep her papa👴🏻, mama 👵🏻 & family members 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 safe with its antibacterial protection👍🏻

There is no crab meat to enjoy, instead enjoy the delicious crunchy 😋🤤 crab roes/ eggs of it🙂

Photo 28-01-2018, 1 11 49 PM.jpg

Another dish that she loves 💗 from Johor Riau is the seafood otak-otak (another signature Johor dish) served here👆🏻👍🏻

1️⃣st photo 📸 captured before another eco walk🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️here

Photo 28-01-2018, 2 50 55 PM.jpg

It’s named after a local fern 🌿 plant aka Paku Piai 🌿 in Malaysia’s 🇲🇾national language. This plant is capable of living in brackish water conditions i.e. scattered in this park🙂

Tanjung Piai 🌿 is the southern most point of Peninsular Malaysia 🇲🇾 & the southern most tip of Mainland Asia ğŸŒŽtoo with the borders of shorelines of Malaysia 🇲🇾 , Indonesia 🇮🇩 & Singapore 🇸🇬

Lots of tourists 👫👭👬 travelling to here, just to capture a photo 📸 with this globe 🌐 shaped monument & plaque which marked the southernmost point😍

Photo 28-01-2018, 2 29 07 PM.jpg

Guess what❓⁉️

Tanjung Piai 🌿 as a coastal mangrove also being granted in Jan 2003 with the statusğŸŽ–of an internationally important Ramsar Convention site👏🏻

It has high socio-economic value for fisheries 🐟🐟 especially mudskippers aka ikan belacak in Malaysia’s 🇲🇾national language😀

Photo 28-01-2018, 11 50 06 AM.jpg

The national park officers 👩🏻‍💼👨🏻‍💼shared about the breeding story of mudskippers🐟. Apparently the male 🚹🐟 mudskippers need to build a mud house 🏠 (refer photo 📸 below) to attract the female 🚺🐟mudskippers. Ha…Ha…Interesting facts learnt😅😂🤣
