Family trip...

Langkawi, 19th (Sunday) to 22nd (Thursday) March 2012.

No smoking. Fasten seatbelt.

Air Asia- everyone can fly, everyone can cry.

Boutique Cafe (formerly Telaga Cafe serving Arab cuisine), along Jalan Pantai Chenang.

Sawaddee, Thai/Chinese restaurant, along Jalan Pantai Chenang.

The Cabin- ship containers converted into 'motel rooms', along Jalan Pantai Chenang.
If you happen to wonder, this is the perimeter fence, not the cabins :p

Idaman Suri, along Jalan Ayer Hangat. None of the serving wares were Ma's idaman :p

Laksa penarak at D'sa Motel & Restaurant, along Jalan Penarak.
Give the stall nearer the jetty a miss- I think this one's much better.

Kuah town. Prices are down.

All mine! My precious! The other guests were out enjoying themselves this evening so I had it all to myself- sweet!

Kuah jetty has been turned into a posh shopping complex.

The iconic eagle of Dataran Lang.

Mempelam (northern lingo for mango), roadside stall serving rice and assorted dishes.
The curry's wonderful- Ma gave an A!

Amuse myself watching kitten amuse itself pawing highly unamused bug (said bug is that dark lump by its left forepaw).

Warrior woman of P.J. hunting the elusive lady's shoe amidst the concrete jungles of Kuah.
Finally relented and speared a mildly unsatisfactory pair to replace her very recently broken ones at Teow Soon Huat Mega Department Store.

Yummy! Grilled butterfly, anyone?

Double yummy! Camouflaged frog's legs, anyone?

Durian Perangin, waterfall near Kampung Sungai Itau along Jalan Ayer Hangat.

Langkawi hot spring, along Jalan Ayer Hangat.
The only point of interest I could find was the pattern of the roof. Unless you're there for the private jacuzzi, stopping by is just for the sake of saying 'been there'.

Tanjung Rhu- the beach has been snootily divided into a public area and a private area for Tanjung Rhu Resort guests only. How rude!

Part of Tanjung Rhu overlooking the Lafarge Cement Factory, Teluk Ewa.

Tourist, modeling at Tanjung Rhu. Husband is the O.P. I'm the paparazzo :p

Pantai Pasir Hitam, along Jalan Teluk Yu. That black sand is almost as fine as flour and sparkly *kirakira
It seems to be finite, however, so do visit and have a look with your own eyes before it's all eroded by the sea.

Still at the same place as above. Further along, as you can see, the sand is no longer black.

Break time. Watched 2 brothers fooling around as I sipped my cold milk tea.

Temurun, waterfall along Jalan Datai. Visit during season when there's still chance of heavy rain.
Otherwise, the waterfall becomes a 'watertrickle', which is absolutely nothing to ooh and aah about.

For nature lovers, however, the rock formation at Temurun may be sufficient to fascinate.
But it is always better with the waterfall- trust me.

Telaga Tujuh, near Kampung Teluk Burau and Langkawi Cable Car.
Unfortunately, though still rainy, the season was too dry to display its magnificence. No waterfall, only 'watertrickle'.

Telaga Tujuh. Some poetic soul arranged these 2 pieces of flat stones just so. It became quite an interesting photo subject for a while.

Telaga Harbour, towards the end of Jalan Teluk Yu connecting to Jalan Teluk Burau.

Chenang, the beach. Lots of tourists (an almost even mix of local and foreign) and seaside activities.

Chenang, the beach. The lines of man made bicycle tracks contrasts with sand balls, byproduct of a hungry sand bubbler crab.

Chenang, the beach. A family having a splashing fun time by the sea.

Chenang, the beach. A father comforts his children and coaxes them to enjoy the 'scary' waves.

Chenang, the beach. Weather was very fair, thus the rather washed out sunset.

Wednesday night market near Kuah town. Arrived quite late, just past 9.30pm and everyone was starting to pack up to be ready to go by 10.00pm.

Airport Corner, roadside stall serving southern Thai cuisine. You get a view of the ever changing colours of the sculptures placed at the roundabout nearest Langkawi Airport.
Reminded me of the same gimmick used at Masjid Kristal, Kuala Terengganu.

E.T. go home.
