FAVOURITE PHOTO

I HAD SEEN LOVELY PICTURES OF LANGKAWI ISLAND FROM
FRIENDS WHO HAD BEEN THERE. SO WHEN WE HAD TO WAIT
A WEEK WHILST OUR FALSE TEETH WERE BEING MADE AT
DENTAL PRO IN KL, PULAU LANGKAWI WAS OUR OBVIOUS
CHOICE.

THE BEST BIT ABOUT PULAU LANGKAWI WAS OUR
ACCOMMODATION AT MUTIARA BURAU BAY RESORT.

THIS IS A THREE STAR RESORT THAT PACKS A 5 STAR PUNCH
JUST FOR THE STUNNING BAY, BEACH BAR AND FANTASTIC
BUFFET BREAKFAST.

TENGKORAK BEACH.

THE BEST WAY TO SEE THE ISLAND IS TO HIRE A CAR.
AROUND THE TOP END OF LANGKAWI ARE SOME BEAUTIFUL
DESERTED BEACHES.... WELL EXCEPT FOR THE MONKEYS.

WE ALSO STOPPED OFF AT DURIAN PERANGIN WATERFALL AND I
HAD A PRACTICE WITH SOME LONG EXPOSURE PHOTOGRAPHY TO
CAPTURE SOME MILKY WATER.

GALERIA PERDANA.

I AM NOT A REAL MUSEUM PERSON BUT THIS PLACE WAS
EXTRAVAGANT. THERE ARE OVER 9,000 EXHIBITS.
APARENTLY THERE ARE ONLY 2,000 ON DISPLAY AT ANY
ONE TIME AND THEY ARE ROTATED SO THAT EACH TIME
YOU VISIT, YOU WILL SEE SOMETHING NEW.

GALERIA PERDANA IS A MUSEUM CREATED TO SHOWCASE GIFTS,
SOUVENIRS AND AWARDS RECEIVED BY THE 4TH AND LONGEST
SERVING PRIME MINISTER OF MALAYSIA.

BELOW ARE EXAMPLES OF WHAT WE SAW. IT WAS PRETTY
AMAZING!

GIFT SHOPPING

PANTAI CENANG IS THE MAIN VILLAGE IN LANGKAWI.
IT HAS LOTS OF QUAINT GIFT SHOPS, CAFES, RESTAURANTS & BARS.

I LOVED ALL OF THE HAND CRAFTED JEWELRY AT A SHOP
CALLED CINNAMON'S. I BOUGHT A ROSE CORAL NECKLESS.
AND JESSE FOUND A FELINE FRIEND.

ORKID RIA SEAFOOD RESTAURANT.

WE FOUND A GREAT SEAFOOD RESTAURANT THAT HAD FRESH
LOBSTER. IT WAS ON THE EXPENSIVE SIDE BUT WELL WORTH IT.
THIS WAS ANOTHER CASE FOR ME HOWEVER WHEN I HAVE BEEN
OVERSEAS AND THOUGHT HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE THE FRESH
SEAFOOD IN AUSTRALIA. A LOT OF OTHER COUNTRIES SEEM TO
DO TOO MUCH TO FRESH SEAFOOD AND THE TRUE TASTE ENDS
UP BEING DISGUISED. HERE IN LANGKAWI THEY PLASTERED THE
LOBSTER WITH THIS YUMMY SAUCE. IT WAS GOOD.... BUT I LOVE
MY SEAFOOD EL NATURAL :)

PULAU PAYAR.

WE BOOKED A SNORKLING TRIP TO PULAU PAYAR. THIS TRIP
WAS A BIT DISAPPOINTING. THE FISH WERE NO WHERE NEAR AS
AMAZING AS WE SAW ON PULAU TIOMAN OFF THE EAST COAST
OF MALAYSIA. ON THE BOAT GOING OVER THE SMELL OF DIESEL
MADE ME NAUSIOUS.... AND LUNCH WAS JUST A SNACK PACK
WITH A SANDWICH, SMALL JUICE AND PIECE OF FRUIT.

I DID LIKE HOWEVER THE PRETTY BAY THAT WE VISITED AND
NICE WOODEN PATH AROUND THE MOUNTAIN FRONTING
THE BEACH.

DRIVING THE ISLAND AGAIN WE FOUND SOME GORGEOUS
QUAINT FISHING VILLAGES. THIS IS THE OFF THE BEATEN PATH
STUFF THAT HUBBY AND I LOVE TO SEE.

WE ALSO VISITED A BAY WHERE THERE WERE QUITE A FEW LUXURY
BOATS. BUT IT WAS THE LITTLE FISHING VILLAGES THAT WERE
MOST CERTAINLY THE DRAW CARD FOR US.... WITH PICTURE
PERFECT VIEWS AND COLOURFUL BOATS.

SO TASTY! BOTH HUBBY AND I LOVE INDIAN.

WERE TO DIE FOR AND THE OTHER COUPLES ON THE CRUISE
WERE FUN. WAT A FANTASTIC EVENING!! :)

YOUNG JESSE HAD A BIRTHDAY TODAY - THE 13TH.

ENDED UP AT PANTAI TENGAH BEACH AND GUESS WHAT?

677011316295383-aussirose_an..u_Langkawi.jpg

I HAVE A PLAN FOR HUBBY AND I TO DO IT ALSO....ONE DAY....
AS A SURPRISE... SHHHH..... DON'T TELL HIM ;)

TURKISH DELIGHT RESTAURANT.

LUNCH TODAY WAS PRETTY GOOD. MAYBE IS WASN'T SO MUCH
THE FOOD (WASN'T BAD).... BUT I THINK MORESO THE NICE
GREENERY UPON ENTRY..... INVITING.
PLENTY OF WALL PICTURES TO LOOK AT AND INTERESTING
LIGHTING.
WE SAT BESIDE THE WINDOW SO WE COULD LOOK OUT AND
PEOPLE WATCH.... SOMETHING HUBBY AND I ENJOY DOING
WHILST ON HOLIDAY.

BACK AT THE ACCOMMODATION, THE STAFF HAD SOMETHING
SPECIAL PLANNED FOR OUR BIRTHDAY BOY.

WE WERE SITTING AT DINNER AND AN ENTOURAGE OF STAFF
AND DRUMS FORMED A LINE AND GAVE A BIT OF A PERFORMANCE
ENDING AT JESSE.

THEY PRESENTED THE BIRTHDAY BOY WITH A CAKE AND CUTTING
SWARD. HE WAS BOTH SURPRISED AND EXCITED!
