Langkawi, 19th (Sunday) to 22nd (Thursday) March 2012.
No smoking. Fasten seatbelt.
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
Give the stall nearer the jetty a miss- I think this one's much better.
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.
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).
Finally relented and speared a mildly unsatisfactory pair to replace her very recently broken ones at Teow Soon Huat Mega Department Store.
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!
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.
Otherwise, the waterfall becomes a 'watertrickle', which is absolutely nothing to ooh and aah about.
But it is always better with the waterfall- trust me.
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.
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.
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.
