After visiting the night market on Wednesday we walked along to the hawker food area. Strategy with these places is to always look for the busiest place – and it worked!
This meal was fantastic – and very cheap, and very fast. Although they did seem amused that we were there.
Lots of monkeys in Malayasia too…
Spotted these two infront of the sign on the beach in Langkawi while on a walk. I couldn’t help myself, but take the photo.
While sunbathing you are also suppose to show respect by not going topless – okay so this doesn’t affect me… but no-one told the person lying down! Thankfully she was lying down. We saw a number of people looked very brown or red.
You will be pleased to know that while we were there the weather ranged from 34-37 degrees, with very high humidity! We put sunscreen on at least three times a day… but I managed to get slightly burnt.
Roll on winter!

It is hard to do so little. Where the biggest decision is what pool to swim in and what drink to have!
So we thought we’d try some island hopping. These little boats take about 8 to 10 passengers and go pretty damn fast as they aquaplan towards some of the more popular islands.
The amazing thing is that amongst they mayhem of the clearly inadequate jetty infrastructure, everyone seems to get back onto the right boat. I don’t know how.
Langkawi is a gorgeous place with beautiful beaches set against a back drop of severe mountaints. But being near the equator means that it is hot and humid.
While I have been sweating a fair bit, it still doesn’t come up to the steaming contraption that I was in as part of my aryuvedic massage in Goa. But that, perhaps, is another story for discussion over coffee.
