Back From Langkawi (And Broke)

Landed in Langkawi International Airport



I went to Langkawi 16-18 December 2008. Now I am back. And I am broke. I have a huge dent in my pocket. I mean HUUUGGEEEEE. To sum my pocket-denting adventure, suffice to say that I disembarked KLIA with just a backpack and came back with another bags. Beg kembar 3 okay. Tebby gave me pocket money which I spent every cent and I added some from my own provision.

It was a business trip actually. But let's not go there.

Between sessions, we managed to cramped our adventures to Pekan Kuah. I came back with RM200++ worth of chocolates, a set of Corelle, 3 boxes of Queen Anne, some kitchen items from Tefal, a bag of kain pelikat, batik and t shirts. And 2 cute fridge magnets.

The resort where I stayed whipped up goooodddd meals. There was one day they served Udang Masak Lemak, Ayam Kicap with ulam-ulam and sambal-sambal. It was hard to stop eating. That, could compensate the faulty aircond that left me sweating to sleep on the first night there. (The next day the set was replaced with a brand new one. We, officiated the asset, so to speak) During our outings, we had Laksa and scrumptious Nasi Lemak. Sedap dan mahal. The price standard KL okay. People, who were tired from shooping spree swarmed the kiosk and we had to wait for some minutes before getting a table and seats.

Before leaving the resort (very near to scenic Tanjung Malai), I took some photos at nearby beach. It was heavenly to be away from the hustle and bustle of KL. Scenic. It was a saddening experience having to leave my kids behind but Tebby told me I should be enjoying myself, given the chance. Yes right. On the 2nd night I slept the night thru. Siaran langsung terus menerus okay. Sampai lah the alarm went off.

My flight was postponed 2 times. We left Langkawi an hour later that we should. Sempat lagi makcik beli perfume bagai kat Airport. And a bag-ful of sotong kering kiriman En Tebby.

As much as it was good to be in Langkawi, it is good to be back home as well. Chaotic and tiring but I am happy to be back with my family.

welkem back kak mon,

miss u a lot! eheheh...

kak mon, agak2 kalu nak g langkawi tu bape minimum bajet kena bawak untuk hardcore fan pinggan mangkuk? huhuhuhuuuu... acik nat wat servey nih....

ummi said...

cikwawi ~ pinggan mangkuk abt RM350- almost RM400 for a set of corelle or arcopal. corelle comes in lesses units (18 pc set as opposed to arcopal yang lagi byk). kalau set arcopal hak lama2 tu, depa jual RM100++ aje. same goes to melamine set. casserole comes in set of 3 and 5. giloss... harga almost 1/2 dari KL. another thing yang murah is crystal. teringin jugak ari tu tp beg makcik dah beranak plus crystal tu berat nak angkut. my latest drooling-for item is queen anne. i laike. can get from as low as RM90 for a set. harga ikut saiz. tefal just a bit cheaper than KL. ku beli yang branded mahal aje kat sana. bukan eksyen tawww. tapi kalo hak murah, baik bli kat KL. rumah ku banyak jua yang murahan, cuma tak beli di langkawi aje. kalau nak keterangan lain, meh email kak mon di abrozila[at]tm[dot]com[dot]my
