Langkawi Day 1

Finally decided to post this after procrastinating for a while .. cos i'm so LAZY~ i dun feel like doing anything anymore .. everyday is a day to rest~ argh~ but its essential that i blog this so that i'll remember what i've done in Langkawi. So here goes the arduous task of blogging about the trip One month later~ ooer~ Here goes.



Day 1 -Plane tickets and accomodation had been booked weeks in advance thereby ensuring that we got a good price as well as certainty that we would have somewhere to sleep throughout the 4 days 3 nights there.

Yup yup so bright and early went to the LCCT at 8am~ groan~ and guess who we saw there? Malaysian Idol champion Jaclyn Victor. Argh.. i keep bumping into Malaysian celebrities, sportspersons, reality show contestants etc etc. but i never have the courage to go up to them and get a photo. Ok the excuse i've had all this while was that i didn't bring my camera along when i saw them, but this time we had a camera ready and fully charged. And it didn't help that Jac kept enticing me by walking past me a grand total of 5 times~ argh~ cannot tahan man. But i didn't do it~ argh ~ cos she was with her ang moh bf and i didn't want to bother the happy couple who was obviously going on a holiday cos Jac was in a sundress that would look pretty at home on the beach.

Hai~ i'll be braver next time i guess. Must 'tebal muka' a bit. The biggest celebrity OMG moment was in Midvalley where i saw Lee Chong Wei and Wong Mew Choo (they were attired in Nike everything). Walao~ really a big fan but alas no camera~ no camera phone~

Anyways i digress~ The plane came on time and even arrived a few minutes earlier at Langkawi airport.

Woots~ destination in sight


So the first thing that we saw when we arrived at the Langkawi airport terminal was a booth giving away free pamphlets and maps~ and the map was pretty shitty but we were still able to get around with a fair bit of guesswork. The next thing we saw was car rental booths in the airport it self~ So we got ourselves a nice little auto Wira for rm60 a day.



Then i started camwhoring~


Since we reached at about 11am ~the flight took an hour~ we had to amuse ourselves till the check in time of 3pm. So we grabbed a quick bite at a Malay stall in Pantai Chenang (the happening beach) located our hotel, then drove all the way to~ Makam Mahsuri~ haha i know what u're thinking, but i don't care cos i'm a sucker for history and legends and museums and stuff.


Cool three huh? I knew it was a cotton three straight away even though i've never seen one before. haha sorry no pictures of the grave cos i dun think it's respectful to put up a picture of someones resting place~ not that anyone wants to see it anyway~



Nice mural of what life would be like during Mahsuri's time.



Haha alas didn't do much there(some kampung houses, Mahsuri museum and enchanted well) but it was culturally enriching.




So 3 o'clock and we were ready to check in to our hotel. The Awana Porto Malai.


The bed was huge and the mattress was nice and firm the way i like it. The room was spacious with a nice bathroom, good TV reception, nice little balcony~ pretty good actually for a good price too.

Well, after unpacking we went to drive around and explore the island a bit and ended up at Helang Park, Lagenda Park, and another park which i forgot the name. Haha they were all connected to each other so we decided to take a stroll.



The eagle at Helang park. There's a shopping mall located right next to it.




Still in Helang park



Lagenda park where all the myths and legends of Langkawi are translated into giant statues. This is one of a phoenix fighting a garuda.


I was pooped out walking those 2 parks. The parks are huge~

Haha~ but the highlight for me was spotting a horn bill flying past a couple of times. Woot~ i love that animals are able to roam free ~


Okie gtg cook~ i'll continue on the rest of the trip later~
