Langkawi, oh Langkawi

Listening to: Kris Dayanti - Hati ini telah dilukai
Feeling: Happy cause I am on leave till next Friday

It has been a long time since I had blogged. Mainly due to the fact that I wanted to finish most of my work before our company trip to Langkawi and also because there was nothing much happening anyway. It was always work work work.

Imagine the joy when the trip finally came about. No more work for a full 5 days (including the weekend) and 3 days of sun, sea and sand! Came Sunday, I was up earlier than usual (actually slept for 20 minutes because I was afraid I might miss the alarm) and set off to Seems place to take the cab to KLIA.

We were having fun in the cab having an early morning round of bitchings. The cab driver seemed mighty amused. Quite funny because he kept smiling to himself. Got to KLIA and had breakfast. Everyone was excited and when it was finally time to board the plane, I was already kinda tired. Imagine walking about 1KM to get to the boarding gate. The flight was delayed for about an hour as expected. It is AirAsia after all... But apart from that, the flight over to Langkawi was not too eventful.

From a distance, Malaysia is just a little hazy blob of land

clouds

world is round
I love taking pictures of clouds. So pretty!

We got there after 45 minutes of turbulent flying. It was a cloudy day and so I guess that affected the ride there. Got to the hotel and I promptly nosebled.

Nosebleed
Argh! Nosebleeding sucks

Must be the heat and the pressure change and what nots. And I swear to God it is not because I saw a hot guy naked of something like that. :(

Here's the view of Awana Porta Malai, our humble abode for our trip.

It's not exactly as nice as last year's Cherating Club Med. But it'll do. It's cheap alcohol vs nice view... It's a tie!!

Nothing much after that. Went to town and went crazy in the shops. Bought a bottle of Absolute Raspberry. It's only RM45. Can you imagine? RM45 and here you pay RM96. Fuck, I was seriously considering quitting my job and staying on there and be a full time alcoholic. Ciggies is RM46 per pack. Dude... I wish I had more money then... Bought 2 cartons of ciggies and a bottle that we finished during the night. *Wistful sigh*

There is actually nothing much you can do in Langkawi minus drinking and smoking like a crazy ho. Went nuts drinking at night. Damien the photographer was so sloshed, courtesy of me. I seriously considered a career in bartending then. *laughs* Got back and slept soundly till the next day and we went to Burau Bay.

We had a drink at this beautiful beachside cafe... I think it's called Seashell Cafe

Got back to the room badly burnt and got ready for the Gala Night

It was held in this private bungalow called Sang Ria. Beautiful, beautiful place. If you have the moolah, I definitely recommend this place to stay. There are 3 rooms including one studio loft room which opens out to a HUGE balcony. On top of all that, it is directly in front of the beach so it's just a hop, skip and turn away from the waves!

busride
We had to take the bus there, nothing else to do there so took pictures loe!

Got back to the hotel after that slightly high on sugar (had loads of coke to drink) very sweaty as it was extremely hot! Went drinking again what else and ended up slightly drunk...

drunks
We're not drunk, just high!

Woke up the next morning and immediately after breakfast, we had to go. It was a fun trip... but not as good as Cherating, I have to say but it's cheap alco... Man, it was a druken affair. That's it for this year then! :)

'There is actually nothing much you can do in Langkawi'... well said... it is a kampong, quiet... rather actionless, but still I like it...
