After the devastating so-called reshuffling meeting between the Medical Officers and the hospital director,all I needed was a vacation. A planned vacation that is. And so the big, big Tayib family went to Langkawi.
We booked our ticket with Mas Airlines. Saving tons of money for good services at a budget price through the group booking facilities. It allows bookings up to 9 people at one time. And we were a party of 14 people. We even had a private mini bus to shuttle us from Malacca to KLIA. [price : MYR 250 for a 15 seater bus]
It was uh-mazing as to the gems we discovered through Mudah.Com. Mr Husband was the key person in organizing the trip and he managed to secure a package which includes 2 homestay houses (3 rooms each) + 2 rental cars for 4 days 3 nights worth MYR 1,600. Kaching!! Despite the location being a tad further away from the tourist spots, it was worth every penny. After all, we did have a car.
Our group consists of babies and elderly members, so naturally the activites had to kind of cater to everyones abilities and stamina. Though, shopping seems to be a universal appeal towards all age groups. In short, we managed to do these things;
Island hopping : walked through the Bat cave, eagle & dolphin sighting, went to the fish market and learnt a bit about fishes et cetera
- Strolled along the shops of Pantai chenang. Had dinner at an arab seafood place. yucky food and services though.
- Cable car
- Underwater World
- last but not least.. shopped until we drop at Haji Ismail Group store till we dropped. We bought chocolates, cookware, fine porcelain and china, new luggages.
All in all.. I felt the trip was a success. Here are just bits and pieces of the beautiful creatures and scenes throughout our trip in Langkawi. Next time, Terengganu!!
