To Langkawi We Go

[updated on 18th Dec. 2006]

Inspector and his friends had been planning for this trip for months. It was a tempting one as Player's cousin's fiancee could get the accomodation at staff price. For some,

Booze + duty free shopping + holiday = How to RESIST??

So at 7am, off we went to KL Sentral, took the Skybus to LCCT and boarded the Air Asia plane at 10.20am ON TIME. It was my first time at LCCT and flying with Air Asia, so it wasn't a terrible experience after all. That of course, was besides the fact that coz it was free seating, everyone was pretty 'kiasu', cutting queues and rushing to the plane for good seats. Have even overheard people telling their relatives that "next time, bring your kids along, can 'pinjam' them" just so that they could queue over at the lane specifically for senior citizens and mothers with young children. *Sighz*

Upon landing on Langkawi soil an hour later, I could finally declare that after my entire 27 years of life, I have been to Langkawi now!! Muahahhahaa... Sounds pretty 'jinjang' right? *Grin* Since there were 10 of us (make that 5 couples), we rented a Honda City and a Nissan Serena for the weekend.

It was still early, so we took a drive around Kuah Town, had lunch there and did some shopping in Langkawi Fair Shopping Centre and Pasaraya Billion. Bought lots of duty-free liquor and chocolates there.

Nearly 5pm, we checked into Awana Porto Malai. Very nice rooms we got, facing the ocean too. *Smile*

Dinner was at Tang Lung Seafood Restaurant. At first look, the place looked kind of creepy coz there was this huge lantern hanging at the entrance which reminds me of the lanterns the Chinese people use for funerals. But inside, you can see so many beautiful and colourful lanterns hanging from the roof. So many shapes and sizes. So nice!

We stopped by at the beach for a while but it was too dark to see nor take pictures. We would be back tomorrow. Spent the rest of the night lepakking in one of the rooms, and oooh.. I learnt to play Rummy using mahjong tiles. Fun-nye!
