Environmental Awareness Trip at Pulau Ketam, Selangor, Malaysia

Hey 👋🏻 all, Happy 65th Malaysia National Day 💕🇲🇾💗

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 as a go green supporter this time gonna sharing with you all about her amazing eco & environmental awareness familiarisation (FAM) trip recently at Pulau Ketam 🦀🏝️, Selangor, Malaysia 🇲🇾

This 2️⃣D1️⃣N FAM trip was well organised 👍🏻 by Holiday Link Sdn Bhd & being supported by Tourism Selangor, Menteri Besar Selangor Incorporated, Malaysian Inbound Tourism Association (MITA) & Majlis Pengurusan Komuniti Kampung (MPKK) Bagan Pulau Ketam

.

The trip 1️⃣st started with a meet up of all trip participants (Mostly tourism players, travel agents, travel companies & tour guide) & then departed from South Port Passenger Terminal, Port Klang for a speed boat 🛥️ ride with Huat Huat Speedboat of approximately 30mins to Pulau Ketam 🦀🏝

Safe arrival to Pulau Ketam, met & greeted with the tour guide from Pulau Ketam, Mr Loo & then captured a group photo 📸 @ KETAM signboard. All trip participants then left their luggage at Sea Lion Hotel for Pulau Ketam guided walking tour of approximately 3️⃣ hours

During this walking🚶🏻‍♀️tour, all trip participants get to explore the island’s local community & facilities ie. Balai Bomba 🚒🧑‍🚒 Sukarela, Government clinic of 💯 years old 🏥, police station, Maybank 🏧🏦, power station ⛽, temple ⛩️, 3️⃣ primary schools & 1️⃣ secondary school 🏫, the only 1️⃣ dried prawn processing factory on the island 🏝 , several seafood wholesalers, street wall art & many more

.

After the walking tour, all enjoyed tasty fresh seafood lunch served in Restoran Heng Heng Kopitiam 🍽️😋👍🏻

After lunch, met with Tok Chua Kim Lin, the President of Majlis Pengurusan Komuniti Kampung (MPKK) Bagan Pulau Ketam, Negeri Selangor. Tok Chua Kim Lin has encouraged all trip participants to organise more tours/ trips to visit to Pulau Ketam. During the met-up session, Mr. Kenny Ng, Vice President (VP) Inbound of MITA has suggested to Tok Chua Kim Lin to organise more cleaning & rubbish collection campaigns as rubbish are observed during the walking tour in Pulau Ketam & this may affect the potential tourism growth of this island to the tourists. This session ended with a tea time treat by MPKK Bagan Pulau Ketam @ Restoran Heng Heng Kopitiam 🍽️🥣🍤🥤😋👍🏻  as an appreciation to all trip participants

Checked in to Sea Lion Hotel 🏨🛏️, then the trip participants also get to enjoy an approximately 2️⃣ hours Pulau Ketam boat tour 🛥️ to visit the fish farm, Sg. Lima, eagle 🦅 feeding, dolphin (Yes ✅, all so happy as seen some small dolphins 🐬🐬 from far), fish wall art & Mangrove Villa homestay inspection

Do check out her happy boat tour ride TikTok clip captured via 📹🌐

All trip participants ended the day with a satisfied fresh seafood platter dinner at Restoran Jia Jia 🍽️😋👍🀼ôŽ°Š

The highlight of this trip that SiennyLovesDrawing really enjoyed personally is the visit & environmental awareness program at the Pulau Ketam Tzu Chi Environmental Protection Recycling Station (Tzu Chi) ♻️ which established since 25 Oct 2011 in Pulau Ketam 🦀🏝️

All trip participants get to participate in the local environmental awareness program with Tzu Chi volunteers. The program started with an introduction of Tzu Chi Association & their go green 💚♻️ efforts by Tzu Chi Association in Pulau Ketam to raise the environmental awareness. From this session, all trip participants got to know that the rubbish condition in Pulau Ketam 🦀🏝️ has been improved better since the go green awareness efforts by Tzu Chi to the local island residents here , of course it can be improved greater for a cleaner Pulau Ketam in near future for the local island residents as well as local & foreign visitors

.

Next, a warm up body session with a light aerobic exercise led by the Tzu Chi volunteers. Then, followed with a split of 2️⃣ groups trip participants for an outdoor activity to the nearby recycle collection station to assemble & classification of reusable resources, then collected all the reusable resources into the reusable fish nets & returned to Pulau Ketam Tzu Chi Environmental Protection Station ♻️

After the group photo 📸 session of all trip participants with the reusable resources collected, hand washing session & then the reusable resources processing explanation session by Tzu Chi volunteers. All trip participants get to understand the brief features of the processing & transferring reusable ♻️✅ resources by the different grade of plastics

It’s really not easy to do recycling 💚♻️, of course the 1️⃣st buy in of the local residents to willingly put in the reusable resources into the collection station set up. However, there are a minority of local residents that misused the collection station as another dustbin on the island 🙄

After the collection of reusable resources, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has learnt that lots of tedious works involved especially the separation of different parts of a plastic reusable resources collected. Other reusable resources collected are glass 🍾, boxes/ cardboard 📦, papers ğŸ—žï¸, books 📚, CDs etc.

Guess what❓⁉️

Glass bottles 🍾🍾 can be recycled by using a special machine to crushing them into small glass pieces, then can be mixed into soil for plantation 🌱🌿🌳 purposes

Amazing learning gained 👍🏻

Yeah‼️ A yummy healthy vegetarian lunch 🍽️😋👍🏻 prepared by Tzu Chi volunteers as an appreciation to all trip participants for their visit & go green activity participation by all trip participants

All enjoyed the lunch happily 😃😁

.

The program is then followed by Q&A, as well as an experience sharing session. During the sharing session, Tzu Chi volunteers have encouraged all the trip participants to include an environmental awareness session in their tours or trips organised moving forward, so that more people will be encouraged to start their own go green habits respectively ğŸ’šâ™»ï¸ğŸŒŽ

Ms Yap SC of Holiday Link Sdn Bhd, the trip organiser has shared her appreciation 🙏🏻💗 to all trip participants for their participation in this FAM trip & encouraged all trip participants to start organising similar environmental awareness tours/ trips moving forward

Ms Yik Thim of Tourism Selangor shared that her shopping habit now is too lazy to buy 🛍️ It means if she knows she will throw the item subsequently, she will not buy it now ❌🛍️ It’s a good way to reduce on 3️⃣R efforts. She has added that she does home cooking 🧑🏻‍🍳, so now she uses her kitchen waste / food waste from her daily home cooking preparation as home plant fertilizer. Then, her home plant 🌿🌱 will then grow as her own home cooking ingredients. Amazing way of being environmentally friendly ğŸ’šğŸŒŽ

.

Ms Jennifer of Tzu Chi has added that parcels 📦 from online shopping actually causing lots of headache in Tzu Chi’s recycle efforts especially the sticking tape on the parcel 📦 box that the Tzu Chi volunteers have to remove the tapes from each parcel box 📦 during the process of recycling the reusable resources

Mr, Kenny Ng, VP Inbound of MITA has suggested to Tzu Chi volunteers to collaborate more with the associations outside of Pulau Ketam 🦀🏝️, also to start influencing the younger generations to educate them on 3️⃣R efforts ie. Reduce, Reuse & Recycle ♻️. Those can reuse or repair, don’t buy 🆕 one

At the end of this trip, many trip participants have agreed 💯👍🏻 to organise more eco & environmental awareness tours moving forward & start with own self 1️⃣st & then influencing people around on go green ♻️ habits ~ 3️⃣Rs for a better planet ğŸŒŽ to live in

Yes ✅, let’s all continue to do our part for a better living environment, each of us play an important role in go green efforts ya 💪🏻🙌🏻👍🏻

In addition, every 3️⃣rd Sunday of each month is designated as Tzu Chi Recycling Day nationwide in Malaysia 🇲🇾, so the public can just drop by any Tzu Chi Recycling Centre/ Point ♻️ to volunteer time in sorting out recyclables at the centre & safeguard the Earth ğŸŒŽ hand in hand, more details via 🌐 https://www.tzuchi.my/en/join-us/recycling-centres

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 would like to recommend this as an educational activity for our younger generation especially to impart environmental knowledge, raise environmental awareness & encourage all to protect our Mother Earth through practical actions ♻️👍🏻

Art Galleries

Kudat

Visit to G Wonder Khayalan Home Art Gallery, it’s owned by a local Sabahan artist named Jainal Amambing, an award winning artist in domestic & international

Guess what❓⁉️

It’s also known as The Ugliest Home Art Gallery in North Borneo by the artist owner himself

Hmm…Why❓⁉️

Mr Jainal believes in finding art in imperfect things surrounding his life. So, he always love to portray the ugliest things from materials eg. The inner part of the Pokok Berlian, instead of the smooth tree trunk. To him, all things are art in different perspectives

Personally to SiennyLovesDrawing, this actually is a natural real look of an art gallery with the real art space of Mr Jainal to producing & exhibiting his art masterpieces & creative ideas

Absolutely an inspiring amazing gallery visit here. In fact, almost every corner in this home gallery is an instagrammable spot, highly recommended 📸👍🏻

Heritage historical tour @ Hulu Selangor , Malaysia

Day 1

It was a raining day 🌧️☔ with sharp departure from Matic KL to Serendah @ 7.40am, the name Serendah in Malaysia’s national language ~ Bahasa Malaysia reflects that this area is located at a low level

Went straight to Macau street, Serendah for breakfast. This is the only Macao street that remains now from the total 5️⃣ Macao streets in the world ğŸŒŽ ie. Kuala Lumpur, Serendah, Malacca, Penang & Singapore. This street will be a food street of Serendah in the future as shared by Mr Andy Pah during lunch of that day

.

Highly recommended the tea egg dessert served at Kedai Kopi Yee Kee. The egg well boiled in sweet tea soup, yum yum 😋👍🏻 SiennyLovesDrawing & her friend were lucky to enjoy this well known dessert @ 9am. It normally ready to serve around 10am. She loves this hot dessert as tasted it for the 1st time. A must try ya 😀 They were sharing a table with a retired couple, had a good chat with them, a happy breakfast

Address📍: https://maps.app.goo.gl/vrZJbeZV4oRdiZJz9

Then, visited the Hock Leng Keng Temple 双文丹福靈宫 which founded in 1869. It’s a 150 years old Taoism temple with a museum to visit to learn the history of this temple & Serendah. It used to be a medical temple for the village residents, especially kids here. SiennyLovesDrawing got impressed by how well this temple is being maintained till now

Once stepped in, personally she loves the dining & tea time vibes in this cafe, especially love the antiques collections exhibited here

The cafe founder actually studied in Taiwan & decided to be back to her hometown & started this cafe & also a homestay 欢喜居 ☕🏘️

SiennyLovesDrawing also personally suggested to her to inform the relevant authorized person of Galeri Sejarah KKB to consider adding all the gallery info exhibited in English so foreign visitors will have a chance to read & understand the KKB history from this gallery. Many foreign travellers love to visit the museum of a local place on a travel journey, so it’s important for this gallery to add in the English version of all exhibited information

Last stop at Seven Wells for photos & heading back to KL, home sweet home 🏡 to conclude this 2️⃣D1️⃣N trip at Hulu Selangor, Malaysia 🇲🇾. It’s also known as Perigi Tujuh Serendah. It’s a popular tourist spot in Serendah & it was built to resist floods in Serendah. To SiennyLovesDrawing personally, this is an important heritage spot to visit to learn more about Serendah history & the advancement of technology at that time for flood preventing

However, during this visit, she is sad to see the rubbish & not well taken care of this place. Special thanks to 1 of her travelmate, Ms MC who have shared the before photo captured from her visit in Aug 2020 that the Seven Wells were all functioning with cleaner surrounding at that time

At present, there are 2 wells that no longer with water 💦 Sigh…She wishes the relevant authorities can actually take some appropriate action to well maintain this beautiful site as Malaysia is slowly resuming tourism activities at the moment. Also to have all Seven Wells all functioning well again as its purpose of preventing unpredictable flood in the future

Address📍: https://maps.app.goo.gl/6HTCgm2Mus5KNdHh9
