She was told that if this dance requires to be performed for other timing/ period, the village spiritual leader will have to ask for permission by offering a pig’s head, 2⃣️0️⃣️️-Thai baht cash 💰 & liquor 🥃, then pick up a predictive coloured stick. If the village spiritual leader has picked up a stick of the same colour, it means the spirit does not 🈲 allow for the request

Unique ways of using a sleeping bag

Hi ‼️Hi‼️ A slightly longer posting interval from SiennyLovesDrawing’s 👩🏻 usual trend for this  blog post 👩🏻‍💻📝 because she made a mistake in her posting scheduling 🗓🕖 So sorry 😐 ya

Hmm…Do you own a sleeping 😴💤 bag ❓⁉️

SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻was sponsored🎁with a sleeping 😴💤 bag for her Laos🇱🇦volunteering art teaching 👩🏻‍🏫 trip 🛫earlier in Sept by PTT Outdoor ☺️

However, due to the trip 🛫arrangement that require only stay in hostel 🏘 & with only hand carry luggage🎒of 7️⃣kg allowed for each of the volunteer’s 👫👭👬personal 👚👖🕶👟belongings, hence she didn’t ❌manage to bring along this sleeping 😴💤bag…🙁☹️😢😭

https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2017/09/08/amazing-community-pictorial-books-library/

In this connection, she was curious🤔about the unique ways of using a sleeping 😴💤bag & here you go her sharing from her research 👩🏻‍💻& reading 📖

Guess what❓⁉️

Sleeping 😴💤bag is actually not just as an ordinary item to be used for camping ⛺️🏕trips or any outdoor 🏖🛣🏞 adventures. Just more than that‼️😀

shutterstock_111407567

It is a protective bag for a person to sleep 😴💤in comfortably😉

Moreover, it definitely serves well as a warm♨️blanket because it provides the warmth & thermal insulation to a person👍🏻

Hmm…SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻 personally thought that a sleeping😴💤bag can serve as a comfy warm♨️blanket while she is in a long travel journey via train 🚂 (her favourite❤️travel transportation mode), on the plane ✈️ or a tour bus 🚌

Do you recalled about SiennyLovesDrawing’s 👩🏻 blogging 👩🏻‍💻📝on how she has spent her last day of 2015 earlier❓⁉️

https://siennylovesdrawing.wordpress.com/2016/01/01/a-quiet-count-down-moment-from-year-2015-to-year-2016-%F0%9F%A4%93%F0%9F%93%9A/

She suddenly thought that with her own sleeping😴💤 bag now, definitely more comfy of her 24/7 book 📚 shop reading 📖 pleasure then 😁

Ha…Ha….She is aiming for it this coming 31 Dec 2017 😍🤗 She is kind of looking forward to it now after owning this sleeping 😴💤bag🙂

If you are a minimalist❓Or into a minimalist lifestyle❓Do consider to have a sleeping 😴💤bag as your movable/ foldable bed 🛏

How❓⁉️

Very simple❓Just rent or own a studio🏠unit, then you can save space by using a sleeping 😴💤bag as your bed 🛌

You may get an inflatable pillow for a more comfy sleep 💤 😴

Yeah‼️Using sleeping 😴💤bags for all girls 👭👭👭overnight🌃🌌talk, can be renting a hotel 🏢room, a girl 👭 friend’s home🏡living room etc.😆

Just imagine that all girl friends👭👭👭gathering together in a space, comfortably in a sleeping 😴💤bag & then chit chatting all night 🌃🌌long….if tired, straight away lie down & enjoy sleeping in the protective warm ♨️bag 😃 So cool right❓⁉️ Ha…Ha…🤣

Hmm…How about recycling ♻️a sleeping 😴💤bag then?

As always SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 loves to explore ways of recycling♻️

1. Do contact 📞☎️📱📧 the manufacturer to see if they accept old sleeping😴💤bags. Some companies will take them in to be recycled ♻️/ reused / to conduct their own product research

2. Do make a quilt by using the inside stuffing of the sleeping 😴💤bag to fill a new quilt. If it’s in good condition, you can use the sleeping bag fabric for the underside of your quilt too 👍🏻😊

3. Do donate it to a local organization. It could be an animal 🐶🐱shelter / with bags in good condition, to local youth 👦🏻👧🏻👦🏻👧🏻groups that have outdoor 🏖🛣🏞 programs

Eat

Gourmet Safari KL, http://gourmetsafarikl.com/

Foodie lovers will enjoy gourmet food, precious wine, whiskies & cocktails (mocktails) to celebrate the intimacy of socialising at the dinner table by guided tour to 6 F&B ourlets owned by Werners Group, http://wernersgroup.com/ at Changkat Bukit Bintang KL.

Just to take note when you are having your Muslim relatives or friends visiting to KL, this is because of serving alcoholic beverages, 5 of their outlets are Muslim friendly i.e. no pork served. And one of them is non-halal named El Cerdo (item 1).

1. El Cerdo, http://elcerdokl.com/ 🐖🐷

El Cerdo means pork in Spanish. It is a non-halal restaurant which specialises in home-cooked pork flavours from all over the world like Europe, the Caribbean & Mexico. This is one of the highly popular restaurant on Changkat Bukit Bintang KL for its perfected pork cooking that took 9 years in the making. The Chef Werner Kuhn has spent days & nights nurturing his baby & now has grown to become the best porky pork restaurant KL has to offer.

SiennyLovesDrawing has enjoyed the grilled pork shoulder steak so much! It is marinated for 48 hours in pprika, herbs, onions, garlic & served with Jalapeno & smoked paprika sauce.

She is planning to return to El Cerdo for the famous “Cochinillo Al Estilo Segoviano” which a roasted suckling pig served on a chopping board (available in whole/ half piglet). She was told that it is a tradition to knock the serving board for 3 times with a plate, then to chop the pig into 3 parts. After that, to make a wish & break the plate itslef into a wooden pail for good luck! This is an interesting tradition that Sienn yLovesDrawing got attracted to it & wanna be back to El Cerdo to experience it herself 😁

So, this definitely a must visit for your non-Muslims relatives or friends to enjoy a super delicious porky ride in KL!

 2. Opium KL, http://opiumkl.com/

One of the best asian restaurant in KL which established on 12th July 2014 to serve Asian delights & oriental cuisine with a twist. Its slogan ~ “Eat Drink Man Woman” ~ takes a more subtle approach to distinguish Opium KL as the must visit places to unwind oneself. Its concept is rounded off by featuring their creative cocktail bar that takes on classic recipes and transforming them into our own creations.

SiennyLovesDrawing really loves their decoration & dining in ambience apart from delicious food served. That’s for sure! 😍

The Sky Garden for sunset viewing

SiennyLovesDrawing loves to enjoy sunset view since young.

Why?

Oasia Suites KL

http://www.stayfareast.com/en/hotels/oasia-suites-kuala-lumpur

This is a serviced residence style hotel with its concept of

“When the workday is done, guests can look forward to returning to the hotel to refresh, refuel & recharge while taking in the lush views of the adjacent KL Forest Eco Park. As the city’s only surviving primarily tropical rianforest, the park is a welcome respite from the cosmopolitan metropolis that surrounds it, not unlike what Oasia Suites KL promises to be to those who seek to Journey Well. “

SiennyLovesDrawing loves their swimming pool view of Malaysia KL Tower

 

The one-bedroom premier room is most preferred among business & leisure guests.

Their modern bathroom design offers a nice view too.

SiennyLovesDrawing recommends to opt for a higher level during your stay (Level 37 is the highest level of this hotel), do off the bathroom lighting & then romatically enjoy your shower with the city lighting.

It would be a cool bathing experience though.
