i have so many things to blog about yet so little time..youth camp..kl trip..new hectic timetable..but i think i should just start with the most recent one first before the memory fades away...LANGKAWI!!! just came back from langkawi last night..it's my second time visiting langkawi..first time was 2 years back when i went there for kem cabaran alam..i did post about it last 2 years..IF u read about it, you'll know =) of course that was a much greater experience..
anyway, back to the recent one..the trip was organised by my dad's company..so several families joined the trip consisting of about 60 people..feels weird though going on a trip with so many "unknowns"..but anyway, i treated it as a family trip so it didn't matter that much..we reached to my dad's office at about 11pm on friday night (dec 26th) because the bus was supposed to reach at 12am..typical malaysians...never on time..LOL..not sure what time we departed..maybe 12.30..
this cured my boredom on the bus..as well as put me to sleep...wow..my all time company on the bus...hehe..(christmas present from my mum..my first mp3 player!!! pink colour..love it! mp3 players may be outdated already these days but so what?i'm contented enough with it.. i've stopped dreaming about having one years back and surprisingly own it now and i love it! )
slept almost all the way and finally arrived at kuala perlis jetty at 5 something in the morning..wait, wait, wait...went for breakfast at 6am..then back to the jetty for the 6.45am ferry..wait, wait, wait..no more tickets so 7.30...no tickets..wait, wait, wait...finally managed to board the 8am ferry..the jetty was so packed with people..
*fast forward*...reached langkawi at...nearly 10am i think..the bus came after waiting for some time..then the driver brought us to a place where they sold minyak gamat (sea cucumber oil)..
the boiling oil yet when we tried dipping our finger into it..it was just hot...not boiling..amazing..lol..we only tried after being persuaded by the bus driver and he even demonstrated it a few times..
we had lunch at don't know where..
hungry souls fed....lol
self-service food..not cheap though..
then the bus drove us to underwater world..we didn't wanna go cause there was too little time and the entrance fees was too expensive...rm28 when we only had 1 hour?no way!i rather save the money for chocolates...so we walked around..
these giant lollipops fascinated me..if only they were cheap...i would definitely get one!
huge isn't it???
m&ms....hehe..i just realise i didn't buy any m&ms..
gigantic mentos...yeah, if only they were cheap..
then the bus driver drove us to a place called "beras terbakar"..couldnt enter in time though..too busy looking at souvenirs outside..lol
and i saw this...little cinderella???
and finally came the check-in time...so we headed to the hotel..
see it??each time the bus or van turned it, i would think that the bus or van wants to fill up the petrol...but the fact is, our hotel is just opposite the petrol station..so convenient? or so dangerous i should say...
this is where we actually stayed...nice??you'll know..
one of the 3 beds in the room..looks ok to you??yeah, pictures are really deceiving...the bed is so not ok..the pillow case and bedsheet were yellowish..the blankets were disgusting...i wonder how long have they not washed it..
have you ever seen this kinda air cond in a hotel room?it's ok if it's old fashion..but there were sparks coming out from the aircond when we tried to on it and it made some scary noises just like those you see in haunted movies..and what's worst? i felt no air cond in the room even after turning it on for hours...
the dirty sink full of yellow stains all around..how long have they not scrubbed it??i forgot to snap the picture of the shower...you can see it through the mirror..an old fashion one with very interesting water flowing pattern i don't know how to describe in words...water comes out maybe every 2 seconds and not continuously..
the toilet bowl with a spoiled flush system..until we asked someone to fix it..it's a good thing that they actually take action..at least...
the lightings were very bad..a dim light on both sides and a normal light at the dressing table...that's all...this is only an emergency light and i bet it doesn't work!!
yup..this...but the thing seemed to be coming off the wall already...well at elast they have this...
there's a bunny ears tv in the room too but nothing could be watched..i had trouble figuring where the on button was too..got tv = no tv...
this was what i had for lunch at the foodcourt prepared by a slow coach..nice though..rm6 with a nestle juice..or i should say rm6.40..
but more spacious and indeed faster...
it did rain but stopped for us to get down the ferry and just in time for us to get on the bus...Praise The Lord for the great weather!
the two cute monkies at the windscreen on the bus...never noticed that they were actually cute...lol..
