Langkawi Trip – Day 1 [Part 1]

Filed under: Travel & Places — Yatz @ 3:08 pm

I’m back from the Langkawi trip with a bang..WOO HOO~~!! Ok, enough of hiatus..


Before I start, I wrote an entry about Langkawi approximately 3 months ago..It is called Requested : Langkawi Trip Spoiler..Check it out..


Alright..A brief opening on the place we took off, the Puduraya bus station, Kuala Lumpur..


The travel bus was scheduled to take off at 11.30pm on Thursday night, but it only arrived at about 12.10am..


We rushed our time just to catch the bus and this is what we got..’Futch‘ you bus company..

It’s already Friday ‘morning’, we were on the stupid shuttle bus and headed to no where that I know of, at least I know we are going to Kuala Perlis..Hahaha..


Being carefree, I slept on the bus as soon as it left the town area..At about 3.10am, we stopped-by at a Caltex petrol station at Bukit Gantang (I have no idea where this place is)..


So I’m the first few passengers stepped down the bus and headed to the toilet..


After that, I proceeded to the Caltex sundry shop to buy a bottle of mineral water..


When I was about to pay at the cashier, the bus driver starts the engine and drive away from where it stopped..


To my shock and afraid of being left out, I ran out of the shop with 2 fellow passengers, a Chinese guy and an English man..


We freaked like hell and rushed to the bus and knocked on the stupid door..Alright, follish us..


The bus driver was actually just driving away to a more spacious lane so that it wouldn’t block any vehicle from behind..WTF~


I should have known the bus won’t leave us there..My mind was being affected by the fellow Chinese passenger because he was running like a freak towards the bus (-.-lll *sweat*

*Here’s Mark and his err..girlfriend or fiancee I guess,??*


Mark is the Englishman who hails from London, chased the bus together with me..Hahaha..If you are reading this..Cheers mate~!!


That incident made me the laughing stock of the night among my friends..WTF~!!


At about 5.20am, we reached Alor Setar and reached our destination, Kuala Perlis at about 6.15am..

That’s all for a funny brief opening before our Langkawi trip begun..


We bought 5 tickets for the 7am ferry, costed us RM 15 per pax..

*Waiting for the people*


We watched The Rock in the ferry..Ok..It’s not Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson..It’s The Rock – Alcatraz starring Sean Connery and Nicholas Cage..


Roughly an hour later, we reached the jetty of Pulau Langkawi, The Duty Free Island..

Hotel and car rental agents everywhere outside the jetty, offering services at anytime..Sometimes I doubt their honesty, although I know they are just trying to make some money from the tourism industry..


At the jetty, we rented a Mitsubishi Space Wagon (MPV-style), RM 250 for 3 days (bargain after bargain)..

*The Mitsubishi Space Wagon..Cool eh*


From the jetty, we passed-by town area, Kuah, then off to countryside to find our living place..


We set off to Awana Resort -with 2 maps in hands- situated at Pantai Cenang, the most secluded resort at Pantai Cenang..

We settled with a room, pool view, RM 145 per night..So it’s RM 290 divided by 5 person..Quite spacious..Can forcefully shared by 8 person in that room..


Can save a lot from there and have all the fun in just 1 room, although you can still rent 2 rooms where it has a door connected to each other..




*On our long way on the hallway to the room*


Things settled..We drove back to Kuah, the town area to have our branch at about 11.30am..


I’m the DD (dedicated driver) for the whole trip..Nice feeling with my hands on the steering wheel ^^


We ate chicken rice at a shop called Restoran Cahaya Bahagia..It sucks..I guess it isn’t ‘bahagia‘ at all when we were eating there..


Bahagia means happiness/bliss, in case you didn’t know..

*Looks good.?? NOT~~!!!*


After the un-fulfilling meal, we went sight-seeing at the town area..Then only we decided to go to the Langkawi Cable Car, Oriental Village..

Beside the cable car station, we got to play with rabbits..And I do mean LOOOOOOTS of rabbits~~!!


They chased me everywhere I go, even without any food for feeding..WAAAARGH~!!! HELP~!!!

*The Rabbits*


After playing with the rabbits, we tried out the cable car..I guess it’s slightly higher than Genting Highlands‘ cable car..Imagine that~


It costs us RM 15 per pax..Shit..All we saw was just money being forked out from our pockets..

*The DON’Ts*


On the mountain peak, we got to take pic with the Koreans..


And also, there’s a hanging bridge which resembles the crook bridge that Malaysia proposed to build to connect to Singapore from Johor, that one..

On the hanging bridge, we met Ian Wright, the host of don’t know what TV programme..Something about tour and travel or something on Astro..



*On our way downhill to the Hanging Bridge*



*The Hanging Bridge*


It’s kinda windy up there, you know..I mean ‘futch‘-king windy..The bridge is rocking like a hurricane..HELL YEAH~!!


After the visit to the hanging bridge, we went to the Seven Wells (Telaga Tujuh)..


Ok..It’s not about wells, it’s waterfall~!!


I’ll leave that for the next entry coz it’ll take some times for me to write and for you to digest the pics that I posted in this entry..


Til then..See ya..
