Since we won’t be around for her 21 st , we decided to make an effort for her 20 th birthday .Took a rather early morning flight out to Langkawi with the kids .
Since the gang were in Andaman, we decided on breakfast at Cenang .Weather was sunny and bright , and so was Huggin Hippo Cafe in Cenang . Lovely breakfast cafe by the beach , relaxed vibe with Asian and western menu.
Food was ok .But ,with the sea a few steps away , we weren’t too fussed with the food .Service was great too.
After breakfast , we decided on the Underwater World Langkawi .I got my discounted tickets via klook.my .Always check before purchasing it at the ticketing counters , this includes all entrances in Klang Valley too ( ie.Aquaria-my other experience with Klook )
Nothing beats an animal stop , doesn’t just entertain the kids , it entertains me too.
Since we STILL had time before the arrival of the Andaman gang , we headed to the Yellow Cafe .It wasn’t really open , but they let us in anyhow.It was SO hot , but again…by the beach , kids were entertaining themselves while M and I decided on a drink . Nearing to 1 pm, the lunch crowd started pouring in , and we didn’t have the cafe to ourselves no more .
An hour later ….Andaman Gang arrived .Wih our Malibu , ice cubes , plastic cups and fresh coconut , we had our little party started .Kids insisted on water fun that completely freaked the parents .After para sailing ,I was put in charge of them, but they sped off on their jet skis to the end of the ocean to a point I could not see them no more .Remained calm , despite the worsening weather and left it to the hands of those sunburnt beach boys to keep them safe.As the rain came gushing down, so did the kiddos.
With our mishap at the Villa , we had no choice but to book ourselves into a hotel nearby …and the nearby was a 1/2 hour drive away. ( our mishap was not looking at their max occupancy of 8 pax including kids …. we actually had 9 adults and 2 kids) .They refused to give in and hence our last minute booking into a hotel.
Quick bath and a change , and off we went to meet the gang at the villa .And of course , what we do best.We had food and food and more food with lots of gin.Cake, burgers , chocolate , chips and champagne , too.
Party ended at about 2 am and off we left to the airport again with 3 hours of sleep.
Less than 24 hours , but one superrrrr trip!
