Island Hopping

This was so serious fun and time saving activities in which you may only spent few hours in touring some nice island. We've decided to do this on our very first public holiday where it only costs RM25 per person! yay!

Our destination:

Pregnant Maiden Island--> Eagle feeding at Lion Island ----> Wet Rice Island

I know it sounds weird for all the translated name, c'mon, it is what it is.

Hopefully you can see what I imagine, the tour guide wasn't properly explaining all this... *sigh*

And our very First stop of this tour was really this pregnant maiden's stomach where she actually has a very nice lake.

Paddle boat, kayak and swimming can be done over here, and my advice, do not *ehem* DO NOT take a manual paddle boat, you will wish you could swim back to the shore especially when you ride on a gear-failure boat.

A lot of foreigner actually visited the place, where this lake is so famous that it is to believe that may make a female fertile after swim/touch/drink the water in this lake, so, any request out there? ^__^

This very cute Australian kid was trying to do some flap-flap before he actually try to jump into the lake! And surprisingly, he can swim so much better than some adult! *applause*

Second station of the trip was to eagle feeding and it's so disappointing as we do not actually get to feed the eagle, but more to some observation activities.

Unless you have a camera with 100 times optical zoom with 99 times digital zoom, you can't really possible to catch those big birds on camera.

I wish these islands will really be protected by every single person who went, as Langkawi has joined the UN Geopark Team to preserved her beauty. Well, hopefully this will still be as beautiful when next time I'm back with my kids!

 

o, do you recognize him?

And this time, it is all distances from Langkawi to all the places! Woah! I wonder did they actually measured it or just simply created it.

Well, that's the end of Pantai Cenang! And also my very first day off.... T________________T

Curatorial Diary 03

After all the time spent with animals, might as well we have some of our own time to visit the most happening town in Langkawi-- Kuah!

It takes approximately 15 minutes from Pantai Cenang to Kuah town, following all the winding path and one thing i should remind you, please, PLEASE take your jacket with you if you're afraid of low temperature, because it is really FREEZINGLY-CHILLINGLY cold at night!

It is very convenience to get transport over here, if you're on a budget trip, a scooter a day costs you about RM25.

DSC07072 DSC07073

Yes, a SCOOTER.

Well, FYI, after we both ride on it, guess the maximum speed we can sped.. TADANG! 60km/h! Imagine that...

DSC07079

And one thing about this, you can see typical kampung style along the way to town, and also some paddy field.

When reaching at Kuah, the very first destination of us is surely the Eagle Square (Dataran Lang). I think i spend half of my memory card just to take those gigantic bird's picture. But anyway, the scene there is so magnificent that you will never realize how great is the statue shocking your thoughts.

 DSC07146

and after that we went to take some really ki-siao picture upon my request, haha! First time here mah... anyhow also need some really memorable picturelike this:

DSC07164

Cute rite... Haha! I knew you will agree with me!

And after that we visited the famous Roo Tian Restaurant and the trabnslation is just simply Open Air! 

DSC07168 DSC07169

Budget Budget! Due to NO-TOO-MUCH-$$$-SPEND basis, I've ordered the simple Fried Pork with Ginger and Spring Onion, which happens to be so nice!

Last station of the day~ Langkawi Parade!

DSC07172  DSC07176

Just like those shopping mall you can find in any small pekan and with the long-known Teo Shoon Huat Duty Free shop, all those alcohol were so madly cheap! Hmm, any chocolates or alcohols order? Haha!!

And that it is! The KUAH-TOWN-ONE-DAY-TOUR!

Oh yes, as you can see, the plane flew by the Penang Island where using my 4 times optical zoom and 3 times digital zoom, i can finally see Penang Bridge in view. Phew~ that was really hard to hide the picture taking actions from stewardess.

So relaxing and soul-healing after the hazardous final for the past month. I really couldn't imagine how i survived from all the tortures and depression from the papers.
