07.49 am – Ended back at Breakfast Bar as Champur Champur was closed during the Ramadhan perion.

Today, we sat at the hut.

My nasi lemak and Nescafe.

Dragon fruits for dessert.

Today’s special.

08.20 am – Overspent buying duty free stuff during the 2nd day.

No choice but to withraw

more money.

09.16 am – Went to Teluk Baru/Dalam jetty for the island hopping trip.

The boats.

Managed to get the price of RM25 per person from Hanif the taxi driver of Day 1. Call Harun at 0124078370 to arrange if you ever go. Others will charge you RM35/RM40 for the same thing. So, why not?

Our boat captain for the day.

The edge of the jetty from the boat.

Loved the boat ride.

09.47 am – 1st Stop. Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest Park.

A lil hiking before reaching

the floating platform of

the Lake of The Pregnant Maiden / Tasik Dayang Bunting.

The solar powered boats.

The changing rooms.

The edge separating the sea from the lake.

Had some fun playing with catfish (brought our own bread) before

the damn monkeys came.

As there was still a lot of time, we decided to rent ourselves a solar powered boat. Was surprised when the person behind the counter, who kept insisting that we rent the solar boat, pushed the price down to RM20 for a solar boat (jackets included) when we sounded more keen to rent a pure paddle boat.

Solar boat it was.

Captain Vivian Tan was having fun paddling her way around the lake.

10.58 am – And then we left the jetty and headed to the part where you can see the silhouette of the pregnant maiden. Why can’t it be Pulau Awek Gemuk?

11.05 am – Next stop, eagle watching.

11.20 am – Hung around for 10 minutes before docking at Pulau Beras Basah.

I wanted to pee but there was no such thing as a toilet in Pulau Beras Basah. Funny right? Anyways I made my way to the back of the hut fronting the beach

into the bushes where I offloaded myself.

The exact spot.

There was nothing much you could do except enjoy the scenery,

clear blue waters,

and take pictures.

12.54 pm – It was almost 1pm when we reached the jetty.

Our souvenirs.

01.02 pm – We wanted to try T-Jay’s Italian Restaurant but too bad

it was closed.

We were hungry as hell at the time and couldn’t care less where we ate so we just hopped into the next open restaurant which was Haroo Bistro.

The menu A.

The menu B.

We were lucky to have had an air conditioned empty room all to ourselves.

Fish and chips.

Chicken BBQ set.

03.59 pm – Caught Marc in the midst of cleaning the grounds of Pondok Keladi.

Spot the squirrel.

Had grapes at the common area and

spent some time chatting with Marc about his life, about how he ended up at Pondok Keladi and about how he loves the cheapness of liquor and ciggys in Langkawi compared to the British pound.

06.09 pm – Arrived at the departure hall of Langkawi International Airport.

Checking in at the counter.

The boarding pass.

The interior.

The row of check in counters.

Our plane arrived earlier than expected.

Well done, Firefly!

07.01 pm – Bye bye Langkawi. It’d be years before my next trip back here.

08.00 pm – Got picked up by Dad and went for dinner at one of the most delicious nasi kandar chain restaurant in Penang.

~yum~

09.08 pm – Started unpacking.

09.36 pm – The amount of images taken were literally in the thousands!

12.00 am – zzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Menu A.

Menu B.

Menu C.

The interior.

Good morning in different languages.

Had a Nescafe tarik,

prawn noodles and

yellow noodles (this one was delicious!).

The bapuk buffalo at the entrance.

Vinny had banana pancake butter syrup.

10.54 am – Went to Zackry Guest House to collect

my deposit refund.

Vinny took over the wheels of MAX for about 1 hour.

11.44am – Arrived at the organic dragon fruit farm

somewhere off Kuah town.

Today I learned that dragon fruits grow off the edge of it’s branches. I wanted to buy a few for myself but too bad the workers there couldn’t understand a word I was saying.

12.08 pm – Arrived at Kilim Jetty. Called for the free boat ride to the floating Hole In The Wall Restaurant.

We were lucky and sat with the owner of

Hole In The Wall who was on the way to deliver goods to his restaurant.

It was such a nice place.

I liked the fact that it was a fish farm and we could pick our food live.

The menu.

We ordered ourselves a grilled local grouper,

a mantis prawn,

a prawn fried rice and

a mixed tom yam.

RM 25.

RM 9.

RM 6.

RM forgot but this was very delicious!

01.19 pm – Actually, we planned to go island hopping at 2.30pm but too bad it rained.

We waited for about half an hour for the rain to subside before

leaving for Kilim Jetty.

02.47 pm – There wasn’t much that we could do since it was raining and so we decided to go hotel hopping instead. Our first stop was The Datai,

a fancy hotel hidden far, far away from civilization. A night here costs RM2000.

The two horses at the lobby.

The Datai’s lily pond

full of big, medium and

small frogs. Full of it.

Hand towels instead of paper towels.

The basin.

The whole hotel was filled with all sorts of art like sculptures in the lobby and glass paintings on the wall.

The price.

The origin.

(How can you not be outstanding when you’re from ‘that’ state? Think Jimmy Choo. :twisted:)

The rooms from the outside.

03.15 pm – Next stop, The Andaman. Another RM2000 a night hotel.

The toilet was as high class as The Datai.

But still, credit goes to The Andaman as it was much more posh and grander than The Datai. The Andaman rooms are also slightly cheaper. The entire place was filled with greeneries.

The outdoor dining tables were between trees and

overlooking the sea below.
