Ni review saya tentang Rumah hantu @hauntumy . Mungkin ramai dah tahu yang di @thelinckl ada 1 rumah hantu iaitu Hauntu. Konsepnya berbeza dengan tipikal rumah hantu kat funfair atau themepark. Instead of jumpscare atau hantu yang melompat jerit-jerit kat korang tu, di hauntu mereka lebih pada psychology. Buat korang terasa seperti berada dalam movie seram. Menariknya sebab ada jalan cerita dan pelbagai ending yang berbeza bergamtung pada decision yang anda buat semasa dalam cerita tu. Siap ada plot twist lagi! 😅 . Paling salute ialah pelakon-pelakon di hauntu ni memang sangat talented and menjiwai watak buatkan kita rasa nak datang lagi tengok lakonan mereka. . Kepada anda yang nak rasai kelainan untuk aktiviti bersama kawan-kawan or family boleh datang. Cuma nasihat saya pada mereka yang jenis tak penakut tapi nak join juga masuk bersama kawan-kawan anda, you just play along je dengan whatever happen inside insyaAllah you will enjoy it! Eventho you tak takut, just think that you pay for it so you better enjoy rather than spoiling you own experience. Team kami sangat enjoy sebab masing-masing ada karakter yang menghiburkan 😂 . tag sesiapa yang korang nak ajak ke rumah hantu ni. 👍🏻 . #KualaLumpur4All #GayaTravel #VisitKL #AboutKL #VisitMalaysia2020 #vm2020

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 1️⃣ 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) ğŸ›ğŸŽ etc.

Guess what❓⁉️

Mr Alex 👨🏻‍💼1️⃣st started to learn about guest house 🏡 renting (i.e. used his grandpa 👴🏻 ‘s 2️⃣ shoplots 🏢🏢) at his young age 🧑🏻 with initial intention to save for his education fund ğŸ‘¨ğŸ»â€ğŸŽ“He used to drawing âœğŸ»ğŸŽ¨ğŸ–Œown 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 âŒğŸ‘¨ğŸ»â€ğŸŽ“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 3️⃣D2️⃣N 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 ğŸž

 

💯 years meaning easily at least with 4️⃣ 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 ğŸ“žâ˜Žï¸ğŸ“±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 1️⃣st 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 1️⃣st. 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 ğŸ‘ŽğŸ»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. 3️⃣, 5️⃣, 7️⃣ 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
