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 1️⃣ 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 1️⃣ 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 1️⃣st 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🏢🏝🏖

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 1️⃣ 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 6️⃣️ 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 3️⃣ 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 1️⃣ to 3️⃣️ in 1️⃣️k 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

Ecotourism @ Belum Temenggor

It’s World 🌍🗺️ Habitat Day today, every year the 1️⃣st Monday of October

Yeah‼️SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 is gonna sharing 👩🏻‍💻📝 about her recent volunteer participation with Malaysian Nature Society (MNS), a non-governmental non-profit organization (NGO) to learn about ecotourism 💚 @ Belum Temenggor🌳🌳, in particular hornbill conservation & habitat for its local communities ~ indigenous people aka orang asli 👶🏽👧🏽🧒🏽👦🏽🧑🏽🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️👵🏽🧓🏽👴🏽in Malaysia 🇲🇾’s national language

IMG-20180917-WA0024.jpg

Since 2004, MNS aims to promoting hornbills conservation in Belum Temenggor Forest Complex 🌳🌳 (BTFC)(1️⃣of the oldest virgin rainforest on Earth, 130 million years old) & to enhancing public awareness of the importance of hornbills to the rainforests’🌳🌳 ecosystem 👍🏻🙌🏻

IMG_8159.JPG

Malaysia 🇲🇾 is home 🏡 to 🔟 Malaysian hornbills & dubbed the ‘Hornbill Capital of the World🌍’ with its Perak state being recognized as the Land of Hornbills

  1. Oriental Pied Hornbill, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oriental_pied_hornbill
  2. Black Hornbill, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_hornbill
  3. Bushy-crested Hornbill, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bushy-crested_hornbill
  4. White-crowned Hornbill, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White-crowned_hornbill
  5. Wreathed Hornbill, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wreathed_hornbill
  6. Wrinkled Hornbill, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wrinkled_hornbill

  9. Rhinoceros Hornbill, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhinoceros_hornbill
  10. Helmeted Hornbill, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helmeted_hornbill

All-10-hornbill-species-found-in-Malaysia-painted-by-renowned-wildlife-local-artist-Mr.png

Not only Borneo‼️ Yes ✅, in fact Peninsular Malaysia 🇲🇾 with all  🔟 hornbill species comparatively 😃

This volunteer participation has recalled her memory of 1️⃣st hornbill feeding @ Pangkor Island early this year

 

BTFC 🌳🌳 aka Northern Peninsular Malaysia🇲🇾’s Natural Jewels 💎, the only remaining contiguous block to tropical rainforests 🌳🌳 which linking to Southern Thailand 🇹🇭 i.e. Bang Lang National Park & Hala Bala Wildlife Sanctuary, also part of the Titiwangsa Range 💚

IMG_7369.JPG

Currently, only BTFC 🌳🌳 & the Greater Ulu Muda Forest Complex 🌳🌳 are on par for the hornbill diversity in Malaysia 🇲🇾, then together with the Southern Thailand 🇹🇭, all made up for the Hornbill Triangle (HoT)🔺

Hornbills get its name from its horn-like projection i.e. a casque on their beaks (Hmm…Not all hornbill species have them though) 😊

Hornbills are well known as the farmers 👨🏻‍🌾👩🏻‍🌾 of the rainforests 🌳🌳

Ohh…Why❓⁉️

Hornbills fly long distances looking for fruits🍎🍏 & swallow fruits🍎🍏in whole. Hmm…Some fruits 🍎🍏 are with big seeds. As they spit out countless seeds, some seeds find a place to grow & become new 🆕 trees 🌳🌳

However, really dissappointed & sad 😧😔 that some of the hornbill species are experiencing critically endangered & vulnerable. In this connection, if lesser ⬇️ hornbills, many rainforest trees 🌳🌳 that depend on them to spread their seeds may disappear from the rainforest 🌳🌳eventually

Why❓⁉️ Why❓⁉️Why❓⁉️

Some of the main reasons are destruction/ loss of the hornbills’ habitats & degradation due to deforestation (Photo 📸 below captured from BRAINS Summit 2018), fragmentation of rainforests 🌳🌳, illegal logging (Photo 📸 below captured by SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 during her volunteer trip), poaching & hunting, conversion to agriculture e.g. oil palm plantations, over-development etc. 😧😔

IMG_8151.jpg

IMG_8161.JPG

As the rainforests 🌳🌳disappear, so does indigenous peoples’👶🏽👧🏽🧒🏽👦🏽🧑🏽🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️👵🏽🧓🏽👴🏽culture too 😧😔 as their living style very much depended on the rainforests 🌳🌳 for medicine, shelter, food, other necessities etc. They are not known to take more than what they need as this would be seen as a transgression of the rainforest 🌳🌳 & would bring curses to their people. So, the destruction of their prime resource is resulting in the destruction of their traditional ways of life 😧😔

IMG_7363.JPG

You may not aware that BTFC 🌳🌳consists of 2️⃣ big parts,

  1. Temengor Forest Reserve ~ the southern part of BTFC is largely a production forest 🌳🌳
  2. Royal Belum State Park ~ the northern part, a protected area🌳🌳

MNS has been working hard for years to get the whole BTFC a protected area 🌳🌳 with its ecotourism 💚 efforts 👍🏻🙌🏻💪🏻 Hope they will achieve success very soon

“MY forest 🌳 , MY wildlife, MY responsibility

Curious 🤔 about what SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has participated & learnt during her 4️⃣D3️⃣N volunteering with MNS❓⁉️

MNS Hornbill Festival🎉🎊

The 1️⃣st  festival 🎉🎊 & annually every 16 Septto bring awareness & encourage orang asli👶🏽👧🏽🧒🏽👦🏽🧑🏽🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️👵🏽🧓🏽👴🏽communities to participate for hornbill conservation under the Malaysian 🇲🇾 implementation of the project, My Forest ~ “Strengthening Non-State Actor Involvement in Forest Governance in Indonesia 🇮🇩 , Malaysia 🇲🇾 , the Philippines 🇵🇭 & Papua New Guinea 🇵🇬 which funded by the European Union 🇪🇺

She has captured an interview clip 📹🎥 with Mr Balu, the Head of Conservation with MNS ~ “Hornbill Conservation Effort by MNS

MY forest is a high⬆️-impact partnership, as it looks at Malaysia🇲🇾’s natural 💚 heritage ~ rainforests 🌳🌳 & how non-state actors ~ non-governmental organisations, civil societies, local communities, the private sector & the public – can inform & change policies towards better rainforest governance.  Under this 5️⃣-year project (2017-2021), MNS is tasked with building the capacity of non-state actors from all around Malaysia 🇲🇾 to engage more effectively with the government in protecting Malaysia🇲🇾’s rainforests 🌳🌳

 

She had great interactions with the orang asli kids 👶🏽👧🏽🧒🏽👦🏽🧑🏽 & adults🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️👵🏽🧓🏽👴🏽about nature awareness, art🎨🖍activities, sumpit, balloons🎈🎈, survey questionnaires❓❓etc. by using simple Malaysia 🇲🇾 ‘s national language ~ Bahasa Melayu 👌🏻✌🏻👍🏻

She got inspired by the orang asli hornbill guardians’ passion 💗 towards hornbills conservation 👍🏻👏🏻🙌🏻 Truly motivated with the positivity 🙏🏻👆🏻Really wish local communities here with skills gained from ecotourism efforts by MNS to improving their overall living lifestyle & being happy self sufficient 👍🏻💪🏻🙌🏻

There are 3️⃣-tiered hot spring 💦💧wells here & well known as its centre of attraction 👍🏻😍🤩

Guess what❓⁉️

It’s a natural salt water 💦💧hot spring ya

Yes✅, not the commonly found fresh water 💦💧 hot spring within Malaysia🇲🇾

Moreover, it’s not nearby sea 🌊 side, this village is located 📍in the middle of Langkawi Island 🌴🏖🏝

This is really rare & can only be found in 3️⃣ other countries in the world i.e. Green Island in Taiwan 🇹🇼 (nearby sea 🌊 side), Kyushu Island in Japan 🇯🇵 & Sicily in Italy 🇮🇹 So, a must visit when you’re at Langkawi Island 🌴🏖👍🏻

Hmm…She has read 📖 some unfavourable comments, however from her recent visit, she notes that the maintaining is all right & of course can be enhanced. Overall, it’s clean & comfy for her 1️⃣st salted hot spring 💦💧experience 😀 She loves it ❤️

Stay @ Hotel Seri Malaysia Kuala Terengganu 🇲🇾

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 3️⃣0️⃣mins drive 🚗🚙

~ Discover Malaysia 🇲🇾 Through Hotel Seri Malaysia 🏢 ~

Yes✅, it’s 1️⃣ 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 1️⃣ of the oldest within the chain of Hotel Seri Malaysia🏢

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

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Why❓⁉️

  • Its strategic location 📍at the centre town of Kuala Terengganu

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 1️⃣st visit due to tight travel schedule 🗒 (Only from on the road passing & spotted it, then this capture 📸 )

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 ✌🏻
