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

Hmm…How to travel to Bintan Island🌮🏖🏝, Indonesia đŸ‡źđŸ‡©â“â‰ïž

You may ride on either,

  • The Roll-On Roll Off (RORO) train ship 🚱

This option with cheaper fare of approximately IDR 20K & 2ïžâƒŁ hours journey 🚱

You will get a chance to meet & mingle with the locals đŸ‡źđŸ‡©đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź during the RORO ride 🚱

SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» & friends đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« have opted for this & you may enjoy her vlog đŸ“čđŸŽ„ ~ visual experience being captured from her 1ïžâƒŁst RORO ride 🚱

  • The Private Speedboat đŸš€

This option slightly more expensive if you wish to save travel time as it takes just 15mins ride & provide privacy to you. It departs from jetty ⚓ named Telaga Punggur, Batam Island 🌮🏖🏝 to Tanjung Uban, Bintan Island 🌮🏖🏝

So, where are the 5ïžâƒŁ Must-VisitđŸ‘€â“â‰ïž

1ïžâƒŁÂ Bintan Sand Dunes Desert đŸȘ đŸŒ”đŸ«

It’s known as Gurun Pasir Busung đŸȘđŸŒ”đŸ«in Indonesian language đŸ‡źđŸ‡©

Guess what❓⁉

It’s naturally formed from its mining site originally. It was abandoned & then being a well known desert destination in this island 🌮🏖🌮 for both local & foreign tourists đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘­đŸ‘«

You will definitely love its clean white sandy landscapes đŸ˜đŸ€©

Definitely a favourite spot📍for many photographers 📾📾 to capture a stunning view of this naturally formed landscape with blue blue sky during sunny â˜€ïžđŸ˜Ž weather especially

2ïžâƒŁÂ Bintan Blue Oasis 💩💧

It’s known as Telaga Biru in Indonesian languageđŸ‡źđŸ‡©

Sharing here a fun fact📌, this Mt Bintan ⛰ just about 400m, but why known as Mt. Bintan & not Bintan Hill❓⁉

Reason being it’s on an island 🌮🏖🏝, so it forms a highest point âŹ†ïž & hence Mt Bintan instead ⛰

Canoeing đŸ›¶ (including water 💩💧 confidence practices đŸŠđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸŠđŸ»â€â™‚ïž) to Pak Tuan Island 🌮 🏝

It was an approximately return trip of 2ïžâƒŁkm canoeing đŸ›¶ to Pak Tuan Island 🌮🏝& some of her male media friends 👬👬👬👬 were participated & enjoyed the canoeing đŸ›¶

Water confidence đŸŠđŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸŠđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸ’ŠđŸ’§definitely helps to get used to the life jacket đŸŽœ while you’re in the water 💩💧

SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» has joined her other female media friends 👭👭 on a boat đŸš€ to the island 🌮🏝

Yeah!‌ Let’s enjoy picking & eating the rambutan đŸ˜‹đŸ€€ at this island 🌮🏝

This island 🌮🏝 is a fruit orchard, many rambutan trees 🌳🌳 , jackfruit trees as well as “ulam” plants đŸŒ±đŸŒż named Ulam Cabang Tiga. Ulam means salad đŸ„— in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ‘s national language. She đŸ‘©đŸ» is a vegetables đŸ„ŠđŸ„’đŸ„—đŸŒœđŸ… & fruits 🍎🍊🍇🍓🍌 lovers (Most of her friends đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź called her “cow 🐄🐂” ~ eating green 💚grass đŸŒ±đŸŒż, Ha….Ha…😃😁)

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 💚💚 initiative i.e. As an exhibit for rehabilitation endangered species with provision for further expansion for future phases 💚💚

The Orang Utan i.e. meaning “man đŸ‘« (orang) of the forest 🌳🌳 (hutan)” in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ‘s national language ~ Bahasa Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡ŸÂ It exhibits a truly human-like mannerism in many facets of its behavior 😃
