Kubang Jela House Stay @ Terrapuri Heritage Village, Terengganu, Malaysia

Yeah‌ From the recent travel 🚌🚍 to Terengganu 🇲🇟, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 had an exclusive privilege to meet 👋🏻 & have a short chat 🗣👀 with the founder of Terrapuri Heritage Village, Mr Alex Lee 👚🏻‍💌 He is a Chinese Peranakan, born & grown up in Marang, Terengganu 🇲🇟

She 👩🏻 is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝✍🏻 here about all she 👩🏻 has learnt from her chat 🗣👀 with Mr Alex 👚🏻‍💌about the ups ⬆ & downs ⬇ in pursuing his passion ❀ towards the conservation & restoration of Terengganu traditional Malay architecture 🏡🏘 He 👚🏻‍💌 has proudly told that he loves 💗 each old houses 🏡🏘 that he has collected thus far & each 1⃣ is unique to him with a story behind respectively 😀

Question❓: Can you spot SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 in below photos 📞📞 album? She 👩🏻 was having a nice 👍🏻 pre-dinner chat 🗣👀with Mr Alex @ Sesayap Courtyard, Terrapuri Heritage Village during her recent stay

Ha…Ha…She 👩🏻 actually thought that Mr Alex 👚🏻‍💌was 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 🍜🍎, cafe ☕, tours, souvenirs (batik) 🛍🎁 etc.

Guess what❓⁉

Mr Alex 👚🏻‍💌1⃣st started to learn about guest house 🏡 renting (i.e. used his grandpa 👎🏻 ‘s 2⃣ shoplots 🏢🏢) at his young age 🧑🏻 with initial intention to save for his education fund 👚🏻‍🎓He used to drawing ✍🏻🎚🖌own brochure to selling the rooms at bus stations 🚌🚌 & received great responses from many backpackers 👫👭👬back then. He 👚🏻‍💌also learnt how to package his room with simple breakfast ☕🥪, yes ✅, he can cook‌👍🏻

Ended up he 👚🏻‍💌 continues his tourism business till now without further study ❌👚🏻‍🎓despite in years between 2006 to 2008 with a cross road 🔀 for his choice, whether IT vs heritage, nature & culture. Obviously he 👚🏻‍💌has 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 👩🏻 is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 about her wonderful overnight 😎💀🛌 in Kubang Jela house 🏡 in this village. Hmm…A night 🌌🌃 stay just too short, personally she 👩🏻 recommends for a 3⃣D2⃣N to appreciating the layout of an inspired 17th century Terengganu Palace 👑 as an great 👍🏻 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 4⃣ generations before Mr Alex👚🏻‍💌bought the old houses 🏡🏘 Some of the houses 🏡🏘 were once belong to the royal families 👑👑 Woow‌😲 He 👚🏻‍💌has shared that 30 years ago, a full Terengganu old house 🏠 each cost of RM30K to 40K approximately 😊

How about now❓⁉

He 👚🏻‍💌 estimates RM300K & above each old house 🏠 at current. He 👚🏻‍💌 has no ❌ intention to resell any of his Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘 collected, though he 👚🏻‍💌 was being offered with great 👍🏻 prices 💱💰couple of times in the past 😃

.

Hmm…Does Mr Alex 👚🏻‍💌regret❓⁉

Personally SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻can confidently said “No ❌” from her observation, Mr Alex’s achievements from Terrapuri Heritage Village & chat with him🗣👀 about his journey

Why❓⁉

You will be impressed as Mr Alex 👚🏻‍💌is very knowledgeable & passionate ❀ in what he is doing for Terengganu old houses restoration & conservation 🏡🏘

.

Over the years, he 👚🏻‍💌hopes to continue & enhancing his project as a tourism products, currently he 👚🏻‍💌is running this Terrapuri Heritage Village as a boutique hotel resort space 🏡🏘 Owned a museum cafe dining 🍜🍎 (with advanced booking 📞☎📱for event etc.) & an upcoming Terramalai, a collection of traditional Malay houses 🏡🏘 from all over the states in Malaysia 🇲🇟 & 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 🇲🇟 ‘s national language 😀

He 👚🏻‍💌emphasised 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 👶🏻👧🏻🧒🏻👊🏻🧑🏻

He 👚🏻‍💌has shared that he was struggled 😢☹😔to communicate, convince the house owners 👬👬👬 to sell 💱💰their houses 🏡🏘 to him when he 1⃣st started his heritage collection. Reason being he is a Chinese Peranakan, not a Muslim ❌☪ He also proudly shared that he speaks fluent Terengganu Malay & this has helped a lot 😊

Once he 👚🏻‍💌has indentified ✅ the old house 🏠 that he is interested, he will slowly get to know the local house owner 1⃣st. He is very persevere in his collection passion, he patiently kept visiting, communicating 🗣👀 Then, after knowing him better & appreciate his passion ❀towards the Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘, the house owner will sell their old house to him 💱💰 eventually

Guess what❓⁉

There was an old house 🏠 that actually took him 15 years ✅🏡 after many many communications with the owner 🗣👀 Wow‌😲 It’s named as Rumah Pulau Bahagia in Terrapuri Heritage Village & yet to be ready as guest villa currently ☺

Mr Alex 👚🏻‍💌has actually collected the old houses 🏡🏘 for 18 years (all being dismantled & stored at the backyard of his parents 👵🏻👎🏻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 💫✚at night) in Kg. Mangkuk

He 👚🏻‍💌was discouraged 👎🏻by family members & friends 👫👭👬 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 💰💵 to maintain. He actually 👚🏻‍💌sold 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 photo📞❓⁉

Terengganu Traditional Malay Old Houses 🏡🏘

From her chat 🗣👀 with Mr Alex, she 👩🏻 has learnt that the balance ⚖ is important in Malay belief, hence the height & wide of each house 🏡 is required to have good 👍🏻 ukiran rumah aka house 🏠 measurement as it also meant for good 👍🏻 feng sui. To Mr Alex 👚🏻‍💌, life is a balance too, not just about making money 💰💵

The houses 🏡🏘 built with high legs to protect from flood & with aims to scard away the animals 🐘🊏🐅

The stairs (i.e. “tangga” in Malaysia 🇲🇟 ‘s national language) to each Malay house 🏠 must with an odd numbers eg. 3⃣, 5⃣, 7⃣ etc.

.

She 👩🏻 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 then🚪

Generally, the Terengganu Malay old houses 🏡🏘 are with beautiful 😍😍 wall craving, Islamic ☪ 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. ☺

Actually he 👚🏻‍💌 has bought 💰💵💯 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

Sea Turtle Package @ Resorts World Kijal

Yeah‌ When SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 was travelled to Terengganu, Malaysia 🇲🇟 for the squid 🊑 jigging festival early this year, she was wishing & hoping for the famous turtles 🐢🐢 watching 👀 at night 🌃🌌 in the same state too

Guess what ❓⁉

Her dream came true with the exclusive media invitation 📩📧💌 by Resorts World Genting (RWG) 🏢🏞🚠 to witness the circle of life as turtles 🐢🐢 return to the beach at its Resorts World Kijal (RWK)🏢🏝🏖, Terengganu, Malaysia 🇲🇟

Yes ✅, she 👩🏻 is blessed 😇 Of course she will continue to deliver her best in her blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝 passion ya 😃✌🏻

Yeah‌ Turtles 🐢🐢 watching 👀‌

 

The amazing 🀩 sight of a mum turtle 🐢 that ambled up to the beach 🏝🏖 to ensure that her next generation ~ baby turtles 🐢 🐢 are safely deposited in sand always 1⃣ to cherish. As the turtle 🐢 watching 👀 season on Peninsular Malaysia 🇲🇟’s East Coast reaches its peak from May to Sept annually, RWK 🏢🏝🏖in Terengganu remains as 1⃣ of the best 👍🏻 places in Malaysia 🇲🇟 to spot & appreciate these majestic creatures on their annual return to the shore 🐢🏝🌊 Yeah‌

Obviously straight away she said “Yes ✅” & RSVPed her participation ✌🏻😃😁 Hurray‌

Upon arrival & checked in, she 👩🏻 was 1⃣st impressed with its window view ~ The breathtaking sea 🌊 & the biggest swimming pool 🏊‍♂🏊‍♀ in Terengganu  😍🀩 Ohh wow‌

 

Of course she had enjoyed her comfy stay 😎 in the premier room with sea view of RWK🏢🏝🏖

A fully furnished & spacious room space 👍👍

IMG_8442

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 highly recommended 👆 this resort 🏢🏝🏖 especially for a family weekend getaway with the kids🧒👊👧🧑 or even a school trip 

Why❓⁉

Definitely an educational stay for the kids🧒👊👧🧑to learn about the turtle 🐢conservation 💚 in Terengganu, Malaysia 🇲🇟 Refer below captures from SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 friends👭’ kids 👊🧑 participation

Being a high⬆-trafficked area, RWK 🏢🏝🏖 has its own turtle 🐢 conservation programme in place to ensure the safety of both the turtles 🐢🐢 & their eggs🥚🥚

2018-09-23 09.46.05.jpg

Yes✅ , RWK 🏢🏝🏖 ‘s own turtles 🐢🐢 hatchery 🥚🥚

Regular cleanings (Including annual beach 🏝🏖 cleanupsss 😀) are done to ensure the beach 🏝🏖 is safe for both turtle landings 🐢🐢 & its guests’  👭👬👫 activities 👍🏻💪🏻

Bravo‌ 👏🙌 RWK 🏢🏝🏖 always continue working with the Terengganu Department of Fisheries 🐟🐟 to seek official protection for its beach 🏖🏝 & to certify ✍🏻📜 its guests’  👭👬👫 turtle 🐢 conservation 💚 programme

She  👩🏻 was informed by the RWK’s turtle conservation officer named Mr Ragu 👚🏜 that turtles 🐢🐢 usually arrive on Terengganu beaches 🏝🏖 from May to Sept, mainly consisting of the common Green Turtle 🐢 aka Chelonia Mydas & the occasionally rare Hawksbill Turtle 🐢 aka Eretmochelys Imbricate. Returning by instinct to the very area that they were hatched🥚🥚🐢🐢, the 7.6km beach 🏝🏖 at RWK 🏢🏝🏖 is 1⃣ of these hallowed places

Despite turtles 🐢🐢 watching 👀, this RWG🏢🏞🚠’s turtles 🐢🐢 conservation 💚 efforts @ RWK 🏢🏝🏖 also supported by various of its guests’  👭👬👫 activities,

i. Turtle 🐢 Eggs 🥚🥚 Planting

A proper briefing 🗣👥👥👥 will be provided with the Dos ✅ & Don’ts ❌, including a demostration by the resort’s turtles 🐢🐢 rangers

Bravo‌ This is important to ensure all the precious turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚🥚are all appropriately planted by RWK 🏢🏝🏖 ‘s guests 👭👬👫 accordingly

 

Some of the guidance are,

  • Must wear gloves before holding the eggs 🥚🥚
  • Dig the hole with enough depth for eggs 🥚🥚 planting (It’s advisable to have between 6⃣ to 🔟 eggs🥚🥚in each planting nest)
  • Once hold the egg🥚, not to turn the egg 🥚in any directions
  • Put the egg 🥚slowly on the ground of the hole prepared for turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚🥚planting
  • Then, covered the sand, fence up & labelled with date of egg🥚planting

2018-09-23 10.10.06

For about 3⃣ months, the eggs🥚🥚will lay incubating in the sand, only for the hatchlings 🐢🐢 to emerge during a full moon 🌕 & speed their way to the ocean 🌊

In the years to come, many will return 🐢🐢 to the very same beach 🏖🏝, completing the cycle of life. Of course RWK 🏢🏝🏖 always will be there waiting to welcome them back 🐢🐢🏝🏖🥚🥚

ii. Turtles hatchling releasing🥚🥚🐢🐢 to the ocean 🌊

When SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has holded up a baby turtle 🐢 , she felt touched in her heart ❀ as only 1⃣ to 3⃣ in 1⃣k baby turtles 🐢🐢 will live long enough after releasing to ocean  🌊

Ohh….What❓⁉

She has blessed kiss 😘 the baby turtle ~ Little Sienny 🐢 ~ to have a safe growing up journey to the sea 🌊

 

It’s advised to let the baby turtles 🐢🐢 to crawling on their own at least short distance from the beach 🏝🏖  to the sea 🌊 , it forms part of their growing journey

 

iii. Coconut tree planting 🌎🥥

Hmm…Why❓⁉

Coconut trees 🌎🌎🥥🥥 can live 💯+ years, producing over thousands of coconuts 🥥🥥 in it’s lifetimeo‌ Wow‌ 😲🀪

2018-09-23 11.27.02.jpg

Moreover, coconut trees 🌎🌎🥥🥥 help to protect beach from coastal 🌊 erosion

After reading 📖 SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻’s earlier sharing about the road less travelled in Terengganu, Malaysia 🇲🇟

 

This round, she is gonna sharing her stay at Hotel Seri Malaysia Kuala Terengganu 🏢, some nearby attractions 📍📍& snacks 😋🀀 within walking 🚶🏻‍♀🚶🏻‍♂distance & below 3⃣0⃣mins drive 🚗🚙

~ Discover Malaysia 🇲🇟 Through Hotel Seri Malaysia 🏢 ~

Yes✅, it’s 1⃣ of the largest local hotel 🏢 chain in Malaysia 🇲🇟 with 21 hotels strategically located 📍in most states within Malaysia 🇲🇟 (except Kelantan & Sabah) currently 🀗

Yeah‌ She was welcome 🙏🏻 with the hotel mascot named ~ “Abang SEM” aka Brother SEM 💁🏜‍♂

Guess what❓⁉

Inside the mascot 💁🏜‍♂ is the Chef Cook 👚🏜‍🍳 of this hotel 🏢, really enjoyed 😋🀀 his hotel dishes especially the Glutinuous Rice 🍚 with Tongkol fish curry 🍛 as well as the Tom Yum steamboat dinner 🥘 during her stay

She 👩🏻 was told during her check-in 🔑 with her media friends 👫👭👬 that this hotel 🏢 is 1⃣ of the oldest within the chain of Hotel Seri Malaysia🏢

From her recent stay 🛌🚿🚜 for 3⃣ nights, she is highly recommended 👍🏻👆🏻 this hotel 🏢 to all of you gonna pay Beautiful Terengganu a visit soon 😍🀩

A market where the Terengganu locals 👭👬👫will drop by for wet market shopping, groceries, daily home supplies as well as tourists for some souvenirs 🛒🛍🎁

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

You will spot turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚 too at the wet market area. SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 was surprise 😱 & would advise not ❌ to purchase any to protect this endangered species ~ turtle 🐢

IMG_3636IMG_3639

Sigh 😔 …She was told that it’s ❌ not explicitly forbidden to sell & eat turtle eggs in Terengganu because it’s the tradition of this state to consume turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚 Also the lack of a national ban currently where the sale of turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚 come from another state/ international are permitted. It was tough to differentiate turtle 🐢 eggs 🥚 by place of origin, hence enforcement really challenging

If possible, do plan a cruise here to view the beautiful 😍🀩 crystal mosque 🕌 within this park

IMG_3457.jpg

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has missed her cruise 🚢 during her 1⃣st visit due to tight travel schedule 🗒 (Only from on the road passing & spotted it, then this capture 📞 )

You will spot lots of local snacks, fruits, foods etc. 😋🀀 from the local friendly vendors

A place by the Tok Jembal beach 🏖 🏝 side with lots of cafesss for dining 🍜🍎, chill & relax, dessert 🍮🍧 , ice cream 🍚🍊 , live music 🎶🎵 🎀🎌 etc. from evening till late midnight 🌃🌌

This is a famous snack 😋🀀 place for “Ikan Celup Tepung” aka flour-fried fish 🐟 , including other seafoods e.g. prawns 🍀🊐 , squids 🊑, mango sticky rice 🍚 etc.

After the snacking 🍜😋 here, do drop by the opposite beach 🏖🏝 site for a relaxing swing time 😆😄

Hmmm…The breakfast 🍜☕ served at Hotel Seri Malaysia Kuala Lumpur 🏢 is with tasty 😋 selection of local Terengganu as well as western style choices too ✌🏻

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
