It is our last day in MahsuriLand and we checked out after d programme had finished in d afternoon. So...gudbye n thanx to Awana for being our base while on d island. Interestingly, I found out later on that there r 2 islands south west of Awana that have 'interesting' name...they r called Pulau Kentut Besar n Pulau Kentut Kecil...hihi. If u r from that island, it may be a bit [a bit je laa] embarrassing if people asked u where u r from. U can look these islands up in any online map...but may be not in d regular touristy map.
It was quite mendung n here we r in Pantai Chenang...just to see whats available there. There r more resorts lining up d beach now, but this part of d strip was quite deserted when we were there
made a short stop also at Laman Padi...had never been there in our previous visits [just passing by]. May be in d next visit we can explore it in more thoroughly
while waiting for our flight in d afternoon, we planned to visit d north n western part of d island. Came across this 'kiss d roadside' Toyota Vios. Entah2 it is also a rental unit...if true, then kesian gak with d owner who'll need to do some repair works. But this road leading to Pantai Kok is very twisty indeed
singgah @ Pantai Pasir Hitam jap...turned out that d blackness is due to tourmaline...yes..d same name as d road in front of our abode...Jalan Turmalin. Here my Sayang was busy looking thru some dried seafood @ one of d outlets
our next stop was Tanjung Rhu...n it s famous limestone outcrop formation not far from d beach. I later noticed that it is just on d opposite side of Kilim that I had visited earlier. Here we r enjoying our late lunch. If u r ever there n lapar...try d 1st outlet next to d beach...d dishes were not bad at all
u can also observe non-seafood items being dried here...such as d above group of homo sapien
on d way to d airport, we made a detour to Makam Mahsuri...didn't realise that it is now a Kota oredi...very commercialised...hhmm. N they r building another auditorium next to this site...a money-making machine indeed...while it lasts...
so here we r...ready for our flight to LCCT. May be we'll come n visit again later...n hopefully not too much rapid a development is going to take place here...
BTW...we learned of d death of MJ while in Langkawi...on d 25th to be exact. During our undergrad years in d States, MJ's popularity could probably be contributed not only to his music...but d music videos as well. At that time MTV was a new medium n MJ took advantage to use it to d max. Anyway, it wasn't too bad as much later he brought into attention d issue of d environment n whats not in his repertoire of songs. N there's also d rumour that he may have converted to Islam...wallahualam
