Langkawi Trip [Part 3]

Filed under: Travel & Places — Yatz @ 9:16 pm

Day 2


Saturday, our second day in Langkawi..We woke up at 11am and headed for our breakfast at Jalan Pantai Cenang..


A brand new day with a brand new plan..Thought of island hopping around the islands near-by..


The worst thing could happen is raining..Our island hopping plan was disrupted for a while..


So we thought of going to the Crocodile Farm at Jalan Datai, the largest crocodile farm in Malaysia..


First, we stopped at a Petronas kiosk to pump-in some petrol for our journey..

*Yacht everywhere*


Due to the heavy rain, short of sight of the road in front and couldn’t really follow our maps..We got lost for a while..

*Long way journey*


We got past the junction to the Jalan Datai and got ourselves to Pantai Pasir Hitam (Black Sand Beach)..


Since we were already there and near to the Air Hangat (Hot Spring), we visited that place, and got ourselves soaked from head to toe when we got down of the car..

*The entrance*

*The decorative plants*

*Raining*


At the Hot Spring, we got to soak our feet in the nice hot water..I could felt the blood flowing all over my body..It’s so refreshing..

*The whole look of it*

*The hot spring well*



sans-serif” size=”2″>Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


*Don’t step into the well/pond*



sans-serif” size=”2″>Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


*Ya..Don’t dip your feet into the hot spring well..It’ll dirtied the well*



sans-serif” size=”2″>Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


*Pour-in the hot-spring water into the bucket*


Then there’s a stupid legend about the origin of the hot spring, the town’s name, Kuah, and also the mountains there..

*The tomb of the Legend of Air Hangat*


I couldn’t really remembered the story..Anyways, who cares bout the story..


When the rain had calmed down a little where it almost stopped, we thought we shall get to our destination, the Taman Buaya..


When I start the engine, it couldn’t start..Something was wrong with the battery or something..

*Stupid Space Wagon*


Then I called the agent and asked for his help or something..Hiew tried playing with the sockets, then Hikaru started the engine..Broom brooom..Voila..Car fixed..


Headed back to the junction to Jalan Datai, where the Crocodile Farm is situated..


Successfully reached Jalan Datai and a long journey deep into the forest, until we reached Pantai Tengkorak (WTF~?!)..

*The entrance into the Pantai Tengkorak (The Skull Beach)..Mind you~*

*Here we are*

*All I can see is just rocks and stones*


Okay..We missed the Crocodile Farm once again..Stopped at the beach and had a brief walk..Asked for directions..Ventured again..


We did it.!! We missed the hidden entrance to the stupid Taman Buaya earlier..Parked the car, went to buy the ticket..

*Welcome to Taman Buaya Langkawi*


There’s a funny thing about the ticket counter..There are 2 counters..One for foreign visitors, and one for Malaysian..They are on different price, of course..


Foreigner has to pay RM 15 for an adult ticket, and Malaysian who is a MyKad holder gets to buy the ticket for RM 10..I couldn’t remember the price for children..The same system applies, though..


Then, we got to see abnormal reptiles when we got in..Ok..It’s not really abnormal that they bite you up whenever they see any humans walking around..


I mean handicapped crocs and gators..Some of them lost one or two of their legs, and most of them were born without a tail to wag around..


At that point, you can just say to them, “Smack my bitch up”, while pointing at your girlfriend’s ass..

*Pop its head out*



sans-serif” size=”2″>Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


*Can you see the 1 on the right.? No tail*


All around we went..The ponds, the performance cage, the bridge, everywhere..



sans-serif” size=”2″>Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


*I guess there are at least 200 crocs and gators in this pond*



sans-serif” size=”2″>Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


*The long bridge across this BIG pond*



sans-serif” size=”2″>Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


*Don’t play-play*


And I got to say many of the crocs are so big size that it might whack you to heaven and back to hell with just one strike with its tail..You know, crocs tail is so powerful..

*The circumference of its tail is about the size of my chest*



sans-serif” size=”2″>Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


*One of the big ones*

*Performances by the trainers*



Helvetica, sans-serif” size=”2″>Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


*Have a bite, bey-beh~*

*Conserved shark and crocs*


At about 4pm, off we went and headed to Kuah..Trying to get to a nearby beach or jetty for island hopping..But to no avail, rain stopped, rain again, stopped, and again, and stopped, and again..Repeat at least 500 times..


So our island hopping plan were 500 times again ruined..So we just headed to Kuah, the town area to have our tea-break meal..


On our way out taking the Air Hangat route, we stopped at the Pantai Pasir Hitam for a while..

On our way going to town in the countryside, we stopped at the Bird Paradise..Well, not see to birds, but to buy liquor for our night..Hahaha..

Wandering around in our car, here and there..Finally, we decided to try out the Taiwanese KFC-style fast food restaurant, the KLG (Kuai Le Gee), a.k.a Happy Family Chicken at Langkawi Parade..



sans-serif” size=”2″>Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


*KLG – Kuai Le Gee (straight translation as Happy Chicken)*



sans-serif” size=”2″>Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting


*The counter*


Well, the menu is very much similar to KFC‘s menu..Fried chickens, mashed potato, coleslaw, potato wedges, etc etc..


And the taste.?? Well, I do think the one whom started this business was trying to plagarise KFC..But it turned out to be an unsuccessful result..

Try to post-up some vids on the crocs performances but something’s wrong with my vid’s webhost..


Gonna talk about it in the next entry, the Part 4 of my Langkawi Trip..
