My Day 2 in Langkawi~

Im survived from haze!! muahahaha just came back from KL for the stupid research, and met with the bad haze face to face when i was having a bad flu at the same time. My nose had to do double work as a filter due to mucus accumulation, so damn pain that time haha. 

Back to story, continue with my Langkawi trip first before i can start to write another interesting place that i traveled before. next time i should write them once i finished the trip, forgot most of the details adi. So i spent 2 days 1 night in Langkawi with Steven during last year Hari Raya Haji and it was an awesome one. Thanks God we did not met the Rain of God during our day schedule. The first day we went for island hopping and shopping due to time constrain. The second day was quite rushing, we went to 3 places and we needed to go back to jetty before 5 for the ferry. There is 2 time slot for the ferry from Langkawi to Penang ( 2.30 via Pulau Payar, and 5.15pm). we chose the 5.15pm one so we had more time on the island.

Early in the morning, we went for breakfast in McD beside the Langkawi Underwater World and checked out from the hotel around 9am. I was totally "am teh" when i knew that we can just leave our key in the room and a note as a check out procedure. I love Tropical Resort Langkawi their service was really satisfying and relaxing enuf for visitors~ 

Our first venue of the day is the Langkawi Cable Car in Oriental Village. The Skybridge was closed for maintenance that time ( and i read some reviews in tripadvisor that it was not open yet until now). Seriously it was such a waste for the closed down. I went there before 2 years ago and the scene was really breathtaking. Honestly there was no sign of maintenance of the skybridge when i went there and i was so disappointed with it. Do something la government! 

Here is some of the introduction of the Langkawi Cable Car from tripadvisor:
 Panorama Langkawi is located on the southwest coast of Langkawi island. The cable car ride will bring you all the way up to about 708 meters above sea level. This journey covers a total distance of 2.2 km linking the Base Station at the foothill of Machinchang mountain to Top Station at the mountain summit & to the SkyBridge.

700m above the sea level!! haha i did not expected that although it is really very high la. I reached there around 9.30am in the morning. it took me around 30 minutes time to drive from Pantai Cenang to Oriental Village. Since there was a lot of ppl that time, the long queue was the one took most of my time in this visit LOL. We bought the ticket for the cable car at the price of RM15 with MyKad. What if i forgot to bring MyKad? the price is RM60 for foreigner. So expensive! haha. There is special price for children and elderly, and also a school tour if not mistaken, check out their official website for more details. 

We brought our own drinks ( in my bag, lol y i always look like a maid bring tis bring tat) since I understood that the food/drinks on the station was... totally expensive. Don forget to apply sunblock and bring umbrella too ( essential). I brought my sunglasses too that time. So we rode the cable car and heading to the top station at the mountain summit. there is 2 stations this cable car, we directly headed to the highest one since the lower one is connected to the skybridge and it was closed. Along the journey we just relaxed and enjoyed the tropical view around. It was totally a different view compared to Genting cable car haha.

Me and Steven in the cable car~ 

view from the cable car~ say HI to the opposite cable car ^^ there is one part of the cable car is very scary one, no support in between, straight up to the station in a long distance. 

Skybridge from the cable car. It was so beautiful and i really wish that i can visit it again someday. Fully immersed with the nature and its beauty with the Andaman Sea during my visit in 2011~ can enjoy different view of Langkawi on the bridge~

and here we are~ the station at the top of the mountain, and the observation platform~ it was so hot and the sun was so bright that day until i almost cannot open my eyes ><

Beauty of the sea~ actually sometimes no need to go overseas, we got all the beautiful attractions in Malaysia that are yet to be discovered~

with boyfie together on the platform with the beautiful sea as our background. I really impressed with Dr.Mahatir who found this place and made it a place of attraction. it is totally amazing

view from another observatory platform. I like this blue sky and blue sea, 天海一线,最美了. u cant really differentiate which one is the sea and which one is the sky. 

Love this blue sky with the clouds~ feel so close to them when i was on the platform~ although the weather was totally unbearable hot....

next, i would like to share about the photos from the skybridge which i took in 2011 when it was still open to public. It was totally a different view from the platform and it is a MUST visit when it reopen again **fingercross to wait for it. I took it with handphone so the quality is not as good as the camera. 
on the bridge~ sunset scene. 

beautiful sunset on the bridge, the beauty.... i cant describe them in words~ the pictures will show everything. 

We just spent an hour on the platform then we came down and headed to our next destination. Actually there is a lot of attractions in Oriental Village but we did not have much time to glance thru one by one. oh ya, don buy souvenirs in Oriental Village, quite expensive. Ideal places to get souvenirs for frens are the night market in Langkawi and around Pantai Cenang~

So, our next destination is the famous waterfall in Langkawi~ The Telaga Tujuh Waterfall. It is not far away from Oriental Village, just around 15 mins driving distance. Steven was so excited to get another chance for swimming haha. but before the fun is here, we were exhausted for walking up a long distance into the waterfall. and it is not the real Telaga Tujuh! it is just the downstream of the waterfall becoz we tak larat dah haha. But still, love tis place. 

There was some family event here, most of them did their picnic together with their children. without second thought Steven jump into the pool adi while i just stood and soaked my legs in the pool again haha. The water was shallow compare to Lake of Pregnant Maiden ( of coz la) but the water quality was the same. the water was so cool and refreshing haha

Steven with the crystal clear water. yupp, this pool is shallow enuf for me to sit and enjoy the view haha

Steven with the waterfall~ the waterfall just like a piece of white cloth hang on the cliff~ not really big and amazed, but moderate and relaxing. a fine combination from the nature

He was so excited and kept on posing so he can get my attention, actually the camera's attention XDD There was a lot of fish in the pond! A guy just lent him the goggles to see for the fish. while i just on the rocks and.... watch how he played....

My favorite photo in the trip~ 

We spent around an hour there. Play until forgot the time XD then we drove back to Pantai Cenang for the Underwater World. I don really plan tis into the trip, as i was planning to Tanjung Rhu actually but becoz we ran out of time i need to change the plan. We followed the road along the airport, and surprise always comes unexpectedly when you try for something new. We found a beautiful beach at the road side so we just stopped and had some photos. 

I love Beach so much! i think tis is the fourth beach i wrote in my blog huh? besides Penang Beach, Damai Beach and Beach in South Africa. Actually I love the beach in Bali the most, but too bad it was too long ago i cant really recall the details back ><

I love sandy beach, blue sea and blue sky. tis picture is such an awesome combination of 3 elements!

It was actually nicely decorated for a walk for tourists i think. not really sure about the exact location as i was in a rush that time. 

Since we were in a hurry, we just settle our lunch in McD again in Pantai Cenang. We reached there around 2pm and we needed to return the car before 4.45pm. After the lunch we just walked into the Underwater World Langkawi, which is our last destination of the day ^^ the ticket was RM28 per person with Mykad presented. What makes me come in is becoz of the Penguins haha

One of the aquarium for warming up before we explored in the big aquarium haha

this fish looked funny hehe

besides fishes, there were also different kinds of birds in the UW ( underwater world, i just short form it ). got yuan yang, peacock, ducks, parrots and some birds that i cant name them out haha

aiyoyoyo don run so fast i cant follow u all haha. very cute la 

We watched the sea lion performance first during the journey. Forgot to took the picture down >< aiya

Steven with a penguin on top of his head XD

PenguinS!!! lots and lots of penguins, OMG they were so cute! especially their walking style, reminds me of the Happy Feet haha. Love penguins so much

our photo together~ y i looked so awkward lol

together with the beautiful blue blue environment, made my face look "blue" too haha

can't name it out but it was just too beautiful

hello little one, quite hot ha, hide under the shade better~

the fishes in the deep seas with some corals

We spent around 2 hours there and rushed back to Kuah Jetty as fast as possible ( not speeding haha). We just passed our keys to the owner at the counter then checked in and on board in the ferry. Luckily everything was just on time. Too bad we just had not enuf time to visit the big eagle, aiya. 

BF on the ferry and played his phone. It took us around 3 hours and we reached the Penang Jetty around 8pm. This trip was really an awesome one for us. Actually there is a lot of attractions that we missed out in this trip such as the mangrove, Makam Mahsuri ( although not really in my plan), Tanjung Rhu, lots more. wish to visit it again but not this few months time. maybe next year? haha. Goodbye Langkawi~
