Third Time's The Charm - Langkawi

Don't laugh, but I visited Langkawi three times already this year, and it isn't mid year yet.

The first time's for CNY with my family, the second's for my birthday and the third's with my girls.

I don't know why I always ended up in Langkawi, maybe because of the cheap alcohol, or maybe it's the closest island where I can do hours of jet-skiing out at sea; but I've always be able to find things to do in Langkawi. Most of them water-sport related.

However, I do think I had enough doses of Langkawi for now, at least for the rest of the year.

This post consists of some random photos taken during my second visit there (girls' trip post will have to wait) on my birthday.

Staying at the Andaman, full R&R on my birthday for me.

The best pancakes I've ever tasted were served at breakfast in Andaman, gosh how I adore those pancakes. I wish I didn't need to pay a grand a night or fly over to the island just to savour these pancakes.

There's this little Caucasian girl who would wait in front of the pancake chef every morning at breakfast for her serving of pancakes. It's so good that she would eat up to 12 pancakes in one morning alone. Yes, I counted. o.O

She's wasn't fat anything, she was this cute little 5 year-old-ish petite frame that would ask, ever so politely, for her pancakes everyday from the chef. So much that her mom forbade her to eat anymore pancakes the following day (after her N servings). lol.

Yummy birthday chocolate cake made specially by the chef.

before heading out to dinner


There are two restaurants I simply love in Langkawi,

one would be Orkid Ria restaurant, which serves the best seafood in Langkawi (there's not a lot choice but don't compare it with the best in KL).

They do, however, have fresh lobster and do serve fresh lobster sashimi upon request, which was a bonus.
Though to be honest, lobster sashimi is overrated.

Give me salted egg yolk crabs anytime.

mega prawns!


The other restaurant would be Bon Ton.

Make sure you call in a day or two early to reserve a table at the corner to see the best sunset view, for two.

They serve a mean steak with fabulous sauce and absolutely divine mash. It's heaven at the price of RM70+.

I shall end this post with a satisfied me in bed.
