Saloma Link Bridge ~ Insta-Worthy Tourist Spot @ Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This actually relating to SiennyLovesDrawing’s đŸ‘©đŸ» earlier blogging đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“ via 🌐 https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2020/05/19/things-cant-wait-to-do-after-the-end-of-covid19-lockdown/

Yes ✅, she wishes to enjoy holidays within her own living city 🌆🏙/ home country 🚗🚌đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ

Yeah‌ Have you heard about an instagrammable attraction 📍 in Kuala Lumpur (KL), the capital city 🌆🏙 of Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿâ“â‰ïž

She đŸ‘©đŸ» has 1ïžâƒŁst visited it from her earlier participation ✅ as media team for Kuala Lumpur 🌆🏙 What’s Fun tripâ“â‰ïžđŸ˜ƒđŸ˜‰

It was before Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ‘s Movement Control Order (MCO) even started though…

She đŸ‘©đŸ» is gonna sharing đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ“aboutthis instagrammable bridge 🌉named Pintasan Saloma in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ ‘s national language aka Saloma Link Bridge 🌉

Guess what❓⁉

It’s now the longest single span steel structure elevated walkway 🌉 in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ The orientation of its floor finishes along the walkway is facing the Qibla (Read more via 🌐 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qibla) to create continuity ↔ between the Pintasan Saloma & Jalan Ampang Muslim Cemetery Park

 

Surely all of you have viewed lots of beautiful đŸ˜đŸ€©captures 📾đŸ“čđŸŽ„ & news sharing about it whether from the main media 🗞📰 or online social platforms đŸ“±đŸ–„đŸ‘©đŸ»â€đŸ’»đŸ‘šđŸ»â€đŸ’»

Yes ✅, this Saloma Link with its main structure i.e. A covered elevated steel pedestrian bridge 🌉 already launched for public visit since 5 Feb 2020 in the city 🌆🏙 which commissioned by Kampong Bharu Development Corporation (PKB) 😀

It stretches 370m & span across the AKLEH Highway 🛣 & Klang River of 69m long. Its curved steel roof canopy houses the with 4.1K diamond facade panels & equipped with LED lights💡💡which brightly-lit up at night 🌃🌌 The state-of-the-art lighting actually changing the light colours from time to time to creating amazing images for public to enjoy their walking đŸš¶đŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸš¶đŸ»â€â™‚ïž & capturing unique moments with it 📾đŸ“čđŸŽ„

Yes ✅, another iconic landmark 📍 in  of Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ This beautiful đŸ˜đŸ€© pedestrian bridge 🌉 connects ↔ between Kampong Baru & Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) just 7ïžâƒŁmins walking đŸš¶đŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸš¶đŸ»â€â™‚ïždistance as compared to 30mins in the past, from Jalan Sungai Baru to Jalan Saloma (reason of its name) & expanding over Klang River

A seamless pedestrian connectivity ↔ between both the old & new 🆕 worlds of KL 🌆🏙, a mere distance from the Kampung Baru LRT 🚉 The construction of this bridge took 1.5 years to complete with cost 💰 of RM31mil (approximately USD7.5mil), including its consultancy cost

The bridge’s architecture is inspired by the Sirih Junjung in Malaysia  đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ‘s national language aka Betel Leaf concept, a must in traditional Malay wedding ceremonies 🎉🎊 as a symbol of unity among the Malay community. Also its design slightly similar to Bridge of Peace, a bow-shaped pedestrian bridge 🌉 with steel & glass construction over the Kura River at in downtown Tbilisi, capital of Georgia 🇬đŸ‡Ș, read more via 🌐 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridge_of_Peace

Personally SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» recommends to visit this bridge 🌉 for both day time 🌆 & night time 🏙 for a different photo/ video 📾đŸ“čđŸŽ„ capturing fun & effects pleasure. Hmm…Please note that this link bridge 🌉 is not ❌ open for 24 hours. Operation hours 🕔 as shared at the bottom of this post 📌

She đŸ‘©đŸ»would like to reminding public, both Malaysians & foreign visitors đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź to maintaining the cleanliness 🚼of this bridge, perhaps by not ❌ having any snacks/ beverages đŸŸđŸŒŻđŸżđŸ„€ while visiting this link bridge

Let’s all of us be a responsible traveller whenever & wherever we are 😊

Ohh ya…Not just that, this bridge also aims for healthy lifestyle in the city 🌆🏙, it’s promoting walkability within the city đŸš¶đŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸš¶đŸ»â€â™‚ïž

 

A 5ïžâƒŁ km fun walk đŸš¶đŸ»â€â™€ïžđŸš¶đŸ»â€â™‚ïž ~ Jejak Warisan @ Pintasan Saloma 2020  was organised on 29 Feb 2020 to celebrate 🎉🎊 the Happy Federal Territory Day in conjunction of the opening ceremony of this Saloma Link Bridge 🌉

Then she đŸ‘©đŸ» got contacted with PKB FB page & received invitation as media 😃😁 So she wore a blue running đŸƒđŸ»â€â™€ïž shirt đŸŽœđŸ‘• & enjoyed a great sweat 😓💩💧as she always enjoy, yeah‌

#COVID19 #Coronavirus Outbreak ~ Travel Not??

Updated 8 June 2020, 10am

Hmm…SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ» as travel lover 💗 really curious đŸ€”

“Do you still continue your travel plans now due to the increasing âŹ†ïž concern of COVID-19❓⁉ Even now with the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) for Malaysians❓⁉

 

COVID-19 has already reached more than 💯K cases worldwide đŸ—ș 🌍 according to World Health Organization (WHO)‌ Most of the countries even exercised travel bans & restrictions ❌⛔

WHO has declared COVID-19 as a pandemic @ 12 March 2020

Ohh no…There are many major events around the world đŸ—ș🌍 have unfortunately been called off OR postponed to a later date because of COVID-19 pandemic

This included the cancellation ❌ of ITB Berlin 2020 ~ 1ïžâƒŁ of the largest travel exhibition, 1ïžâƒŁst time in the history 😔

The list of cancellation/ postpone running events via 🌐 https://toughasia.com/covid-19-chaos-race-cancelled-or-postponed/

Even with the many attractive âŹ‡ïž flight fares & tour packages in the worldwide đŸ—ș 🌍 market now❓⁉

As travel lovers 💗💗, do you still planning your next trips❓⁉

She đŸ‘©đŸ» has read & personally trust that there are people đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź still travelling to enjoying no ❌ queue at airport check-in counters/ imigresen counters & quiet planes ✈ now

Also some travellers are NOT ❌ willing to forfeit payments made for travel & hotel bookings, leave cancellation & decided to just carry on with their holiday plans 😎

 

Hmm…Personally she đŸ‘©đŸ» thinks that not to miss some of the flight sales now as the travel period till next year, 2021. By then surely no more COVID-19 by then, yes ✅, be optimistic & positive 😃😁

Just sharing her personal thoughts 💭 towards COVID-19 as travel lover 💗 Do continue reading 📖 till the end to find out “So, how about SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ»â“â‰ïž Does she travel now❓⁉” 

1. Reliable & latest COVID-19 updates

Keep yourself updated with the reliable COVID-19 daily updates i.e. WHO, Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), local health ministries (e.g. Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ Ministry of Health) etc.

Refer below the daily COVID-19 status from Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿ Ministry of Health FB page, as of this blog posting being updated @ 7 June 2020

Do check out daily COVID-19 updates in Malaysia đŸ‡ČđŸ‡Ÿvia 🌐 https://newslab.malaysiakini.com/covid-19/en

Also the reliable news 🗞📰 channels i.e. British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC News), CNN International, local news / radio đŸ“» channels etc.

2. Travel destination

If your travel destination📍is already with major travel warnings/ restrictions & having “widespread sustained (ongoing) transmission”, then the answer may be easy ~ CANCEL your travel plan

As at this blog post posted @ 10 March 2020, China 🇹🇳 , South Korea đŸ‡°đŸ‡· , Iran đŸ‡źđŸ‡· & Italy 🇼đŸ‡č are the high âŹ†ïž risk countries i.e. with Level 3ïžâƒŁ Travel Notice Warning ~ Avoid Nonessential Travel from CDC

For other countries, you may then decide whether necessary & must travel during this period of time OR to reshedule/ postpone 🗓 the trip

3. Travel modes

Do you travel to your next destination with plane ✈, bus 🚌, car 🚗, taxi 🚕, rail 🚂, cruise 🚱 etc.??

Travel with plane ✈ currently as high âŹ†ïž risk mode of travel. If you do need to plan air travel, suggest to stick with those airlines that have more flexible cancellation & flight change policies 😊

Not just that travel with cruise 🚱 also not ❌ advisable due to the serious COVID-19 affected cruise cases being reported 🗞📰

4. Travel essentials

Rental pocket wifi đŸ“¶ is an useful item đŸ‘đŸ» to stay connected during your trips for latest COVID19 updates 😃

Standard travel insurance policies usually do not ❌ cover trip cancellations because people have a “fear of traveling”

COVID-19 is now well-known around the globe đŸ—ș🌍 , hence mostly all insurance providers consider COVID-19 as a “forseeable impact on travel” & exclude it from coverage in most of all travel insurance policies, unless you have bought 1ïžâƒŁ before Jan 2020

Not to worry, do consider to upgrade your life & medical insurance policies 😉

She đŸ‘©đŸ» has now added ➕face mask đŸ˜·, hand đŸ–đŸ» sanitiser, multivitamins 💊 etc. into her backpack 🎒

5. Self protection pre, during & post travelling

Keeping fit & strengthen own immune system. Do practise good đŸ‘đŸ» hygiene to self protect against any infections

Always carry your own cutlery đŸŽđŸ„ą& reusable water bottle while travelling 🧳🎒

Also to avoid eating raw 🐟🩀🩞🩐🩑🐙 or undercooked food when travelling abroad. Not ❌ to visit any wet markets where animals are slaughtered, dressed/ butchered đŸ”Ș

Do try to avoid shake hands đŸ€ / welcoming hugs đŸ€— /  kissing 😙 lips/ cheeks/ hands when meeting people đŸ‘«đŸ‘­đŸ‘Ź during travel journeys

Instead change to another polite greeting style, time to show what we have learnt from the diversity culture across the globe đŸ—ș🌍

Let’s wave đŸ‘‹đŸ», nod & a bow OR a Namaste đŸ™đŸ» greeting

Do enjoy this creative Corona song, truly inspired for COVID19 prevention ya

Ohh ya…Each of us can now perform own self assess yourself via 🌐 https://www.doctoroncall.com.my/coronavirus/how-to-find-out-if-i-have-coronavirus-online-test

In case of symptoms suggestive of acute respiratory illness đŸ€’ before, during or after the trips, all travellers đŸ‘­đŸ‘ŹđŸ‘« are encouraged to seek medical attention & share own travel history with the medical cum healthcare providerÂ đŸ‘šđŸ»â€âš•ïžđŸ‘©đŸ»â€âš•ïž

6. Be a responsible traveller

Highly recommend đŸ‘†đŸ»you all not ❌ to simply sharing any unverified messages, voice messages, WA messages, emails received etc.

Yes ✅, not to add unnecessary confusion to an already difficult situation

Stay alert & be mindful that only to trust the news gained from verified reliable news providers 🗞📰

Please note that you may be charged for spreading fake news, including through social media channels if being caught by your respective local territories đŸ‘źđŸ»â€â™‚ïžđŸ‘źđŸ»â€â™€ïž then

How about SiennyLovesDrawing đŸ‘©đŸ»â“â‰ïž Does she travel now❓⁉

She đŸ‘©đŸ» has actually decided not ❌ to participate 2ïžâƒŁ media trips within Asia 🌎 that she has been invited since 15 March 2020 📧

Yes ✅, she đŸ‘©đŸ» does think twice before she on board her trips now due to COVID-19. She can’t be selfish & only thinking about her travel love 💗 She still had her loved ones (especially her mama đŸ§“đŸ» after late papa đŸ‘ŽđŸ» recent passed away) who will worry if she insists to still travel due to current COVID-19 threat

Instead, she đŸ‘©đŸ» suggests to exploring own living city 🌆🏙 to ease your travel bugs & you may be surprised that many awesome places near you actually, as well as within states in her home country

Let’s be a responsible traveller & take care of own self to enjoy exploring the world đŸ—ș 🌍 , of course including your home country

Currently, she đŸ‘©đŸ» is busy reading travel blogs, travel online magazines, noting down 📝 travel details & then planning for her future travel trips from her to-travel list, yes, a good đŸ‘đŸ» way to ease her travel bugs…Lol…đŸ€ŁđŸ˜†

Sharing is caring, do check out the list above to enjoy 12 museum virtual tours across the globe đŸ—ș 🌍 ya

Lastly, she đŸ‘©đŸ» wishes that COVID-19 will be under control very very soon & everything return to normal, the usual crowd in public transportation, on the road etc. At least, the RMCO just announced from 10 June till 31 August in Malaysia
