From 2012langkawi

First day we reached Langkawi, we booked our tour and got ourselves a Nissan Serena becoz we had 6 of us and it would be more comfortable if we had more space. I was a bit apprehensive since I've never driven one before and the guy showed me to change gear with the stick and turn on the brake with legs instead of the handbrake. Off we go to check in and have a quick bite, had some Thai food in town but didn't feel satisfied. Found the hotel was satisfactory as it was clean and new. Rested awhile before going to the Bird Paradise Wildlife Park, the kids had fun feeding and petting the animals. We didn't spend much time as we went to shop around the famous Idaman Suri which was on our way back. We had dinner at Wonderland Food Centre then shop again at Teow Soon Huat as they had a big place for shopping.

Second day we went to have breakfast at the Water Garden Hawker Centre and for the next few days for breakfast as well. Then off we went for Tanjung Rhu jetty for the mangrove tour and the boat ride. Had to wait awhile and so we had some lunch at the fish farm before leaving for the rest of the tour. As much as I tried my camera just isn't made for catching fast action, tried a lot of times and I couldn't get a decent sharp shot. It was a relaxing ride and we came back in the afternoon to rest as it was very very hot in the afternoon. Rested before we go out looking for dinner in town again. Settled for Rootian Seafood Restaurant of which the food is more expensive but tasted better than yesterday. Actually wanted to try Wan Thai but they were closed for a week and opening tomorrow. Shopped at Teow Soo Huat again and met Jason , Jenny and the kids.

Third day we had another fishing trip which we depart from Tanjung Rhu Jetty again. We spent a few hours of fishing and I managed to get a juvenile grouper whereas the boatman caught another 2 decent size for lunch. We spent 350 for the 3.5 hr fishing trip which translates to our most expensive fish that we had ever eaten. We had a bit of drama by Brandon as he was so disappointed of not catching a single fish when we announced that we were leaving. He was sobbing uncontrollably and took about half an hour for him to settle down.

Went back to town and stopped at Restoran May Yi who cooked our fish, the cooking was good. Don't know whether it was becoz we were hungry but lunch tasted real good.
Brandon had been pestering wanting to go to the beach so we went to the nearest at Pantai Beringin but the beach was full of shells and wasn't very clean. So had to drive to the other side of the island , I missed a turning and went around the airport. Wanted to stop at Pantai Cenang but couldn't find a place to stop so went to Pantai Tengah instead. The kids had some fun for awhile before we drove back for dinner. Rested and went our for dinner later at night. Reached Wan Thai and found that they were fully booked so they asked us to order first and then come back at 8pm. So we went to shop AGAIN then came back to have our dinner. The food was good but spicy. Price was reasonable as well. Then stopped at the local pasar malam for a short walk before gong back to the hotel to rest.

Final day we had some breakfast and did some last minute shopping then off we went to the Perdana Quay and passed by the Telaga Harbour. Bought some expensive breads at The Loaf. Then off we went to the airport. Departed earlier and got back in LCCT on time but had to wait for Ah Kung n Ah Ma to sort out the taxi before we went home with Aunty Tay. We went with only one luggage but by the time we came back we bought another big luggage to carry our stuff back.
