Vacation Time! Langkawi Island bilss...



After the hassle of reno, now it's time to take a break! I'm leaving my house in a state of mini-hurricane to have a few days of total relaxing bliss in one of our many beautiful islands in Malaysia - Pulau Langkawi!  I'll get back to the mess when I return but for now, it's time to relax.

My kitchen cabinet is finally fixed, just on time before we hit the island.  You can travel to Pulau Langkawi which is situated north side of Malaysia, by road or by air.  Rather than travel 5-6 hours by road and then have to take the boat to the island, we decided to take the 40 mins flight.  Since it's a public holiday on Monday and Tuesday in observation of Hari Raya Festivities for the Muslims all around the world, people have started travelling back to their hometown as early as Thursday night if not earlier to make it on time for family gathering in this auspicious celebration.

Just so you know where exactly is Pulau Langkawi ('Pulau' means Island), click this link http://www.langkawi-info.com/attractions/islands.htm  to find out about our lovely island.  Every place has its history and Langkawi Island or Pulau Langkawi as locally called, is not spared either...here's the story..http://motherearthtravel.com/malaysia/langkawi/history.htm
So, if you wanna take a break and cannot decide where to go, maybe you should come to Pulau Langkawi...wink wink!

So, my bags are packed and will be flying off in 4 hours time..See you in a couple of days!  To my Muslim bloggers and friends, 'Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri' and to non-Muslims, a happy and safe holiday.
