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.
