d morning started with another sunrise snapping...but this time d scenery was not so dramatic probably due to d heavy showers last nite...so a bit gloomy la
d 1st speaker of d 2nd day of d session was none other than Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye. Have never heard him speaking live previously, just whats available on TV, etc. He talked on Safe City concept n touched on d many ideas usually covered in our classes on housing and community development
later on we headed to Gunung Mat Chincang n d cable car service. When we were here last, it was still under construction. But today we managed to experience it ourselves. D Top Station [above] is more than 700m above sea level. N BTW, ticket for locals is 50% discount with IC/MyKad...RM15 per pax.
n here we r posing on d Curve Hanging Bridge. Going to d bridge from d Top Station was quite easy but going back is a bit tougher...sebab kena climbing up d many steps...fuhh...ponat den
d Curve Hanging Bridge...neat design hahh...in d background u can see d Andaman sea while d that island there is part of Thailand me think
d Base Station for d cable car is situated here within d Oriental Village. Many shops can be found here n d prices suprisingly r not that too far off those outside...in fact some r cheaper...
u can also feed d deers if that tickle your fancy...d deer food goes for RM1 je...
...or u may want to wrap around a phyton...u can pose with with d slimy thingy for a small token
there s also an info centre here...come to think of it...I kinda like d design of d Langkawi Geopark logo...nice graphic n colors
but I just dont paham why this type of souvenirs were sold there...I think this belongs to d various tribes in China or there about
leaving Oriental Village...we stopped by d Telaga Harbour Park...probably one of d latest marinas in MahsuriLand. D various yatches found there r very pricey indeed
this could aptly be called 'd have n d have not'...we have million ringgit pleasure boats in d other side n d simple working men fishing vessels on this part of d harbour...with d rusty zinc roof structure as its club haus
d lighthouse [up close it looks like it is not in good working order] served as d landmark for d harbour entrance
n BTW...this has been our ride while on d island...got it at a 'staff rate' of RM40/day. Interested?...just call En Salam @ 0175251235. D going rate for Kancil is ranging from RM50/day at d many other 'offerers' at d airport n d jetty
our next stop was Padang Mat Sirat for lunch n followed by visit to d Beras Terbakar place
it was hot n humid n what a better way to cool down...at this particular spot...near to d top of d Langkawi Airport runaway with d cool sea breeze providing a natural 'air cond' while we were washing down air kelapa n cendol
n after a brief rest @ Awana...we went out again...to Kuah for some chocolates n Vision [u know this thingy right?]. On d way back we made a pit stop @ Pantai Chenang...seems like this is turning into another Ferringhi touristy strip...n busier over d weekend. Came across many Asian tourists from UK...particularly one young couple who thought that we were in Nottingham Trent U...instead of U of Nottingham...hhmm.
