Seri Menanti Royal Museum, Negeri Sembilan

End of May, I joined Santai Travel Magazine team to Negeri Sembilan state for a familiarization trip. For those who never been to Negeri Sembilan, it is located at the southern part of Peninsular Malaysia. From KL, it is estimated about 1.5 hours to reach the destination.

5月尾,我参与Santai Travel Magazine 到森美兰游玩的媒体团。若你们还没到过森美兰的话,它就坐落在半岛的南方。从吉隆坡前往,大概需要1小时半的时间。

                                  

Today, I'm gonna share an interesting place in Negeri Sembilan which is a must visit spot if you travel to this state. 

今天我就分享在森美兰州一个很有趣的地方,若你来到森美兰,必定要去这里哦!

Seri Menanti Royal Museum

This black painted building is a famous landmark in Seri Menanti district. It is now known as Seri Menanti Royal Museum. It was built in 1902-1905 (source from Tourism Malaysia website) and became the official residence of royal family until 1931.

Seri Menanti Royal Museum gained recognition from The Malaysia Book of Records as Malaysia's Tallest Timber Palace. Besides, this old wooden palace is well known for the ingenuity and creativity of ancient craftsmen to build it without the use of nails or screws.The carpenters at the time used wooden pegs so that the palace would be able to withstand the times. 

Seri Menanti 皇家博物馆被马来西亚记录大全列为马来西亚最高的木建皇宫。除此以外,这旧式皇宫也因当时聪明才智的木匠没使用任何一根钉或螺丝而闻名。 他们只用桩把它固定,以让这皇宫可以承得住时间的变迁。

                       


It has 99 solid timber pillars, each soaring 65 feet, representing the 99 warriors of various clans. In addition, the exterior and interior of the palace also has intricate flower motifs to beautify the regal palace. In 1992, it was turned into a museum, opened to public for visit.

99勇士。另外,这皇宫的外侧和内侧都有复杂的花卉图案去美化这帝王宫殿。在1992年,在正式变为博物馆,让民众进去参观。

The very oblique staircase which one needs to be very cautious.  
非常倾斜的楼梯,一个人上下得小心。

I can't imagine how bad is the injury if one falls down from here.I held tightly to the handrail when going down because I'm a clumsy person. xo 

我不敢想象一个人跌倒下去会怎样。当我走下去的时候,手紧紧扶着扶手因为我知道我是一个非常笨撮的人。 xo

The top floor is a small chamber which is believed as a look out point for security guard in old days.

顶楼是一个小室,相信是当时候保安人员看守皇宫的地方。

It is my honour to have a picture with him. Handsome, smart, single and royal member...a good husband candidate! LOL But the Chinese saying goes like this: Those who stay near will get it first, therefore I know I have no such luck cause I'm staying in KL and not Seri Menanti. LOL Good lucks to girls who staying at the area, try to linger the palace more! xoxo 

这是我的荣幸可以与他拍照。帅气,聪明,单身且来自皇室家族..一个上好的老公人选!哈哈但是中文有句话说:近水楼台先得月,所以我知道我没有那么幸运因为我住在吉隆坡不是Seri Menanti。祝福在那的姑娘们,多点去那儿走走吧!xoxo

                         

The silly me play around with sarong cloth :P I'm just showing how Malay in old days look like (top only)....err just ignore my outfit yeah!  

 这是傻乎乎的我在玩着那片沙龙步 :P 我只是给你们示范以前的马来女人怎样包头....哦就不要理我的服装啊!

It's an interesting place to visit. Make it in your travel plan when you visit this state in future!

这是一个满有趣的地方。若你下次来森美兰的话,记得把它记在你的旅游行程中哦!
