Just Another Langkawi Trip ~ Day 1~~~

Seriously I can't really remember who and how they came out with this whole Langkawi idea...
Just on an one fine day few months ago I received an email from Fong and LT saying that the flight and the hotel to Langkawi was booked...
22 of March to 25 of March... 4 days 3 nights... Mandatory and no exception...
And since three of them Fong LT and KP are such a "chin cai" or "xi dan" kind of person...
So left me alone to get prepare with all the itineraries and research on place to go in Langkawi...
As I do not want to repeat what we had did on our last trip to Phuket...
Which we were spending 3 days on that island doing almost nothing...
Anyway since I had just been to Langkawi with HEAFian and friends around one year ago...
So that was not really a difficult task for me...
And which it also explain why this Langkawi trip is almost the same as my previous one...
Others than we were spending much more on food and drink and alcohol and chocolate...

Anyway... The whole trip started at the flight with Firefly Airline in Subang airport...
We were there one and a half hour earlier in case of long waiting queue during check in or security check or boarding...
But who know we were the first four person to be arrived at the haunted Firefly check in counter...
And only to be told that the counter will be available for check in only in another 45 minutes...
So we just stayed at the haunted waiting room for about 15 minutes watching the rain started to pour like cats and dogs...
And worried about the weather on the beautiful Langkawi island....
Then another 15 minutes loitering around the haunted Subang airport looking for something to bite..
Then another 15 minutes in the haunted restaurant eating nothing but just chatting and joking around...
Before finally we managed to check in at the haunted Firefly counter again...
And walked straight pass the haunted security check point which the Malay policewoman seems didn't even care if I was carrying a bomb at all...
So if you are a terrorist and you wish to bomb Petronas Twin Towers or perhaps Putrajaya please try hijacking a plane at Subang airport...
You shall have much more higher success rate...
Anyway... The plane was delayed for 20 minutes due to bad weather before we managed to board the haunted air plane to Langkawi...
Please trust me that I was not exaggerated with all those haunted description...
Just imagine an airport that you were not able to see a single sigh of human being when you walk into the main entrance...
And you were the only person when you were in the waiting room...
And you can count every passenger including all the air crew on the plane with only your fingers...
I can even smell the dust in the air craft as if I was entering a long abandoned mansion...
Perhaps this is the first time even I felt so uneasy with the flight as I just can't help myself thinking about how this old damn thing is going to crash... T_T...
Anyway... Despite all the haunted thingy... Subang airport is quite a nice choice compare with LCCT or KLIA...
As distance of Subang airport is one thousand nearer compare with the other two...
Which save me for all the trouble of traveling...

This is the entrance of Subang Airport... I told you it was haunted... T_T...


The helicopter landed right in front of my eyes~~~ ^^...


After one hour and 15 minutes on that dusty and smelly air craft...
Finally I set my foot on the Langkawi soil save and sound and still in one piece...
Thank God... I really grateful for that...
The very first thing for us to do was to get ourselves a car...
Perhaps it was non peak season at that time... We manage to get a Wira with the same price of renting a Kancil... ^^...
And LT nudge me while Fong and KP was negotiating with the car rental guy...

LT: Wira... RM 150 for 3 days... Not bad hor...
Me: Hm... I think we need to see the car first...
Me: If looks fine then we can rent...
LT: Do you think we can negotiate to get even cheaper ar???
Me: You can try lar... Perhaps that guy will give you a piece of garlic or onion or something...
LT: :S...


So we rented a Wira... Checked in into our hotel... Langkasuka Beach Resort...
Then we headed straight to Cenang Beach for dinner...
To be honest I really have no idea which restaurant to dine in Cenang...
So I just brought them to Underwaterworld car park and ask them to choose one among a thousand of restaurants along Cenang Beach...
And we ended up to have our dinner at a Chinese restaurant named Lam Guai Fong which is located right opposite of Underwaterworld...
I bet it was chosen just because they all were too lazy to walk...
Anyway... The environment was nice... The food was nice... The price was nice... And the boss was very nice too...
And we got a really unlucky number on the bill which was RM 66.60... T_T...

My dinner... So sorry for the bad lighting... T_T...


We walked around and did some shopping along Cenang Beach after the dinner...
Before we headed back to the hotel and rest and Fong started his beer session which he regretted after that as he thought it was such a waste to drink beer in such a duty free island...
And I was totally agree with that... We should drink Whisky or Volka instead... ^^...

Cenang~~~


I got this from a souvenir shop at Cenang... A stainless stell ring~~~
