Langkawi, Day 1

Woke up at an ungodly hour (5 in the MORNING) since daddy wanted to leave by 5.30 to reach the 24 hour McDonald's in Subang by 6am. Met up with the gang (Sam, Kevin and Abby) and Kev's mom drove us to the airport (Thanks loads auntie!). She was so cool. Once this driver horned us for no reason, and the following convo ensued:

Kevin: Show him the finger la mom.
Kev's Mom: Aiyah, I so old edi, Ee Fei, you show la.
Me: Really ah? speed up la. (the car was in front edi by then)
Kev's Mom: *steps on the accelerator*
Me: Ha?! Serious ah?!?!
Kev's Mom: Really!

Nyahahahah. Coolness. Well, went to the airport, checked in, and yay! flight AK 6292 to Langkawi departed on time! And we arrived in Langkawi early too. Yay AirAsia!


We look like morning people. Looks can be deceiving.

Pak Nasser's Nasi Lemak . Notice the difference? No points for guessing which one is the real-time pic.(Proclaimed best in Malaysia. Nyahaha. Major joke. RM7 somore.) And yes Mae, this is payback!


La Half of the Room. We stayed at Hotel Helang. Good place for the price we paid. RM163.00 a night for a 4 person for with buffet breakfast every morning. The staff there are very nice but getting fresh towels took some time. Hee.Low season, so we could check in at 9-ish. Could've had one more person in the room comfy-ly. A note, do NOT go through AWD. Baaaad experience. (refer refer) Call the hotel straight at 04-9553030.

View from our room.

After settling in, we walked back to the airport to rent a car and got a Nissan Sentra for only RM70 a day and with a little petrol in the tank too(En Yusof Othman Tel:012-527 1881). If you're a P driver, no worries, just bring or buy the stickers and you're good to go.

We then drove to the Underwater world Langkawi. If any of you plan to go there, remember to bring both your MyKad and student ID to get cheaper tickets. If you're Malaysian and a student, the ticket's only RM20.


Penguins!


Sam molesting a penguin and Kev molesting Sam. Hee!


Yes Julia, there ARE snow-topped mountains in Langkawi.


Stingray and shark. Not the biggest tau.


Guess what's this. Uber cute one.


Side profile. Really, guess what it is. I forgot the name. Heehehehe.

We were really hungry by the time we came out, so we went food hunting. Expensive man restaurant food in Langkawi. I think we spent RM18 a meal on average. First makan stop: Telaga Cafe & Restaurant, a middle eastern restaurant. I had fish&chips(RM12), the rest had normal fried rice and chicken fried rice(RM6).All three not nice, but the Tomyam Meehon(RM8) Sam ordered was goooooood. It wasn't the normal type of tomyam we have in KL, and the noodles they use, wah... it has more sucking power than the most powerful vacuum. Before Sam could even finish half of the bowl, all the soup ended up in the noodles edi. The drinks we had were nothing special, but their juices were the best. A must try is their Telaga Special Juice (RM6). It's a mix of cucumber, pineapple, lemon and 7-Up. (Email or call them at 04-9552225)

By then in was early evening already, so we went to Pantai Chenang to check out the beach and I saw "Laksa Tsunami". I came to a conclusion that all their laksa stalls' names start with "Laksa" coz all 5 laksa stalls we came across were named Laksa something. Tsunami, Power, Mahsuri, Utara or onemorethatIforgot. So cute.

Lala-esque thingies we found. Alive somore!

We played around until we got tired and hungry, and then drove to Rasa Restaurant for dinner. Had ayam pandan (6 pieces for rm 15) which can beat the one in Good Evening Bangkok in OU, Asam steamed fish for RM27 which was not bad, and claypot tofu for RM15 which was too watery. (Call them at 04-9554940/9664940).

Claypot tofu.

Right opposite the restaurant was a little stall which sells handmade jewellery called ZackCraft. The owner is, of course, Zack, a Penangite who stayed in KL before moving to Langkawi. He has some very cool stuff, including custom necklaces made from coconut shell and carved to whatever design or name you want. Those go from RM25 -RM35, depending on the size and the next day, the gang ordered 5. Hehe, yes, five, which says Julia, Sam, Mich, Kevin, and Abby. (Birthday girl, couple, couple). He even has customers from overseas ordering stuff from him by email. (Call Zack at 012-4665564 or 016-4667443)

Us, and by us meaning me, being the wai sek (glutton) feller, suggested we go to that night's pasar malam (night market) at Kedawang Village. Wahliaooooooo! Superbly cheap stuff there! And by stuff I mean food la. =D Ice-cream for RM1, Ramli burger for RM1, Satay for RM0.30 a stick, and 10 pieces of keropok lekor for only rm 1!Nyam~~


After buying all those food, we drove back, ate, and slept. Piggies. =D

AWD = A wanking d**khead.

I'm boycotting a certain travel agency. The terms and conditions were not up to date, there were NO contact numbers, the only way to contact them prior to booking was by emailing them through their site, NO ONE replies to the emails (note that I said emailS), and the worst thing is, they don't even put your request in to the hotel!

I went through this third-party booking site to get to Hotel Helang, the hotel I'll be staying in during my upcoming Langkawi trip since I couldn't find their current telephone number online. After submitting the request, I got the reply email saying "bla bla bla bla bla Reservation Status : Not Yet Confirmed - Awaiting Hotel Confirmation".

Awaiting Hotel Confirmation. That means the hotel was either already contacted on the request or will be told of it right? I waited for 4 working days, got fed up, and called the company (thankfully they put it in the email) and was told that the hotel have yet to reply. Whattatooting man, I'll be there in less than a week, it's the low season, and yet the hotel can't tell me whether there are rooms empty?

I searched for the sister hotel's number, hoping to get the number for Hotel Helang from them (hehe, kinda paiseh ask for a hotel for another hotel's tel no.) and was told that reservations were done by them (yay!) and that they did not recieve any news from the agency regarding my booking. Wtf? Hotel Helang's team has wayyyyyyy better PR skills than that of the agency. The kind lady I was referred to asked for my number, and said that she will call the agency to sort out my case. In less than 15 minutes later, she called and told me that my request was on the waiting list. Fine, waiting list waiting list la how long did I need to wait bla bla bla tell me are there rooms available so I can search somewhere else. Her reply? Alot of rooms are available, but I do not know how long you'll have to wait for the agency to get to you.

>.agency have not sent any correspondence to her department, and will not be sending anything until I'm off the waiting list. Waiting list for what? For the agency to get off it's lazy ass and send in my request ah? Helloooooooooooooooooo, one email's all it takes!

In the end, the super kind lady booked a room for me through the phone, though the room promotion was for web booking only, and since none of us have our own credit card, she pulled some strings and we can pay upon check-in instead of pre-paying!

See A*** W** D*****, you lost out on your commision and a long term customer all becouse of sucky service. *glare*


Oh, and when I cancelled with that travel agency, only then did I get their reply.

"We regret to inform you that Hotel Helang is fully booked during 24 July 2007 to 27 July '07"


BULLSHIT!

Wen's Interpretation

Apologies to Wen for the really late interpretation for Blank Canvas. The truth is....I forgot-ted.=P
Sorry darling!


All righty then.

The box represents how you perceive yourself. If it's a small, unadorned box, you think very little of yourself but if it's some huge treasure chest, ego la you. Hehe. Wen, you're great la, not some tiny take away box.

The flowers represent your friends, and where the flowers are represent how close your friends are to you. Wen's field full of daisies are "outside a window a la Sound of Music. it's no where near the container" so she has many many many friends, but no one she truly trusts all her inner most secrets.

The ladder signifies your ambition. The taller it is, the higher you want to move up the ladder. The sturdier it is, the stronger you think your foundation is. Wen, infinity goes a looooong way.

The cat/horse is supposed to represent your wife/husband. Wen, since you wanted to do a cat, you might be a closet lesbian. Ahahahhaha no la nice point to kacau on oni. =P The adjectives you used to describe your animal is how you would like your future other to be like. (Buff and sleek hor wen? Hehehe)

The bad weather represents problems in your life. If you perceive it and feel it, you know your problems and you're doing something about it but if you know it's raining but it doesn't effect you, you aren't doing anything to solve your problems. The intensity of the storm/wtv is how bad you think your problem is la.

Bookworm

Ever since my exams finished, I've been reading and reading and reading non-stop. The first thing I do is open my book and read, and the last thing could be closing my book and sleep. Wahahhaha.I love it. Simply love it. I finally found the "Daughter of the Empire" book in the cover I want and at the same place, I also found "Traitor's Knot" hiding in a corner. Guess where I found my darlings.




Popular.



Like omg right? MPH, Kinokuniya, the online bookshop thingy, all TAKDE. I masuk Popular to get some book wrapper, and POW! I spot not one, but BOTH my long yearned for books. Nyahahha! Gonna book-shop in Popular more often now.

If you're a major bookworm like me (say rereading all 6 previous books just to get more umph from the 7th) you'll understand the heartache which comes from buying your favourite books. *sigh* 35 bucks a pop burns such a big hole in my pocket. And that is for the old books. If it's newer (3 years since the first publication is considered new), I easily have to dish out RM45 a book. Thankfully, there are second hand bookstores around, namely Pay Less Books. I've only been to the ones in Atria and One Utama, but I'm sure their other shops would have similar books too. Imagine RM16 per paperback or RM35-ish for hardcovers. Cheapo weh! Yes, their books are second hand but so what? Their books are all in good condition and so far, I found no dried boogers.

Today is another good day for me. *grin* RM6 a book. I only got 4 though. Wanted to get more, but mom was in a rush. Where? Hehehehe. It would be one of the last places one would look for books.


Tesco, Puchong.


Like whattatooot right? Bwahahhahahahha. I'm loving Tesco now.

The Big Red Button

Went kai kai with Fi and Tsze yesterday. Bought a new top and jeans! Yay! Came back and went for the Rotary Subang Installation and realised just how much weight I gained. My skirt hardly fitted. Bleh. But food is goooooooood. >.<

Got dragged up to help with the awards and medallions presentations and wah, my legs got so tired. I think I went on and off that stage at least 10 times. But luckily Rt. Alain was there also, can gossip gossip (hehehhe). I *heart* the medallions! So gaya looking weh! But to be on a Rotary board ah, *shiver*. Wait until I can goyang kaki and still earn millions first la.

Oh! I came across this at wingz blog. Uber cute!

Blank Canvas

All righty then. Remember in a previous post I wrote about a series of questions which in the end explains a little about a person? I did say that I'll explain it, but before I do, I want you to answer the questions first. If you don't want me to know your answers, fine but if you want me to interpret your answers, comment abit la kay? Try to give as much detail in your answers as possible.


Imagine your in a clear, empty, totally white space. No lines, no shadow, nothing at all. Just whiteness.

Now imagine a container. It can be a box, a chest, a tupperware, etc of any size, colour, weight. Describe the container as well as you can. Is it plain or intricate? Cheap, or expensive? Where is this container in the space? Middle? Near the wall?

Now think of flowers. How many are there and where? Are any near the container? On it? In it?

There's a ladder in the space. How tall is it? Is it sturdy or would a gust of wind topple it down? Would in reach the ceiling? Or maybe you can't see the top of it?

Now think of a horse (if your female) or a cat (if our male). Give me three words to describe it. Don't bother about colour. Is it free or tied up? Cute, or gruff? Sleek, or shabby? and so on la.

Now about the weather. It's a sunny day but now clouds are forming. How's the weather like? A short shower or Hurricane Katrina? Thunder? Lightning? Are you affected by it or it is just "Hey, it's raining" ?

Lagoon-ing


Reminds me of when I use the cheat in Sims 2 to move stuff around, in this case, Kevin.


Almost all of us. Pau was camerawoman-ing


Danny and his friend. Looks Singaporean right?


Parental duty: Round 1 - Caring for baggage.


I was trying not to laugh...again.


At the dreaded teapot ride.


One last round!


We picked the wrong person to help us camwhore.


An even worse person to ask would be the waitress.

All right. Remember in the wordy post i wrote about two Singaporeans? Well, it turns out that Pau cought one of them on camera during on of the rides we were on. So, if you know the guy below (Adrian I think?), feel free to direct him to this blog la kay? Hehe. His friend is also in the picture but can only be seen with x-ray vision googles coz he's behind his friend.
(and I'm still looking for the black and gold ladies version of his top.)
