Perfect Romantic Escape

The last time we stepped foot in Langkawi was back in 2002. Wow, that was TEN years ago! @_@

There.. ten years ago in Langkawi, Darling and I looked like that ^.^

How did we let a decade passed by without returning to Langkawi? Maybe we got married, delivered a baby and life got so hectic that we did not get the chance to travel anymore :( When did my life turned so sad? :'(

Now, if I could go wherever I want, I need not go far. As long as I get to go for a beach getaway will be paradise!

Darling and I love the sun, sand and sea. I am after all a submerryn! :P

Why the sudden mention of Langkawi? That is because when we went to Langkawi a decade ago, it was during the holy month of Ramadan. We all know that the puasa month is fast approaching and when Darling and I were discussing about the possibility of going for a short getaway, fond memories of our Langkawi holiday popped in our mind.

I would love to stay at this particular Mediterranean-inspired marina and resort Awana Porto Malai this time around as Darling and I would love to take a romantic stroll along its breezy boardwalk and discover the beauty of the sunset on the horizon of nearby islands.

We would definitely take the Langkawi Cruise Tour as we won’t want to keep paddling on sand!!! >.< Taking to the seas to relax and feel the gentle sea breeze. Since we are at it, we will also sign up for the Sunset Dinner cruise that will take us on a pleasant trip across the Andaman Sea, in full view on the beautiful Langkawi islands as the sun sets. And on a really good day, we might even chance upon spinner dolphins and flying fish swimming around the yacht! Now, that would really be awesome!! I would also like to try the saltwater jacuzzi as the ones that I had has always been freshwater..

The next day, I would treat ourselves to a pampering session at the recognized 5-star Javanese Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa. I’ve tried the one in Awana Kijal and I love it max! The pampering really soothe me and Darling love the effect of the aroma therapy oil on my skin then. It made my skin so supple and smooth to the touch…

After our spa, we will have a romantic dinner at Zest; at the boardwalk while enjoying a glorious view of the legendary Pregnant Maiden Island.

Having said all that, the one thing that I really want to accomplish while being in Langkawi is making a trip to Pulau Dayang Bunting. Everyone knows the legend of that island. I don’t think I need to even mention why I want to pay a visit there. Just crossing my fingers and hoping that a silent wish will indeed come true..

All I’m asking for is a local island holiday.

After all, as it is famously known, the idyllic Awana Porto Malai Langkawi is perfect for travellers who appreciate scenery and romance. We could really use some romance right now…

      :'( Ten years ago he was the happy go lucky guy pak-tor-ing with me. TEN years down the road, he’s married with a kid and is the sole bread-winner of this family. Guess I have to go find a job to share the burden so that he can look good again :(

  • //

    aww Langkawi eh? I miss that island too! love the beach especially! :D

  • //

    wow… you haven’t change much and you still look young…

  • //

    Langkawi :)
    A place we’ve been back to almost every year this century… even when wife was one month from due date. I guess our trip there tomorrow, while he’s still 17 months, would still keep that average going.

    Sand, sea, sailing, sunsets, scenery, serenity…
    Beach, beer, bumming, breeze blowing, babe, and now baby…
    no currency exchange, no language barriers, no passports and travel forms…

    Best of all, flights are from the airport just 10-15 minutes away, needing only a 10 minute walking distance from car to check-in and the plane… and occasionally tickets starting at RM0.

    See you when we’re back!

    • //

      Yeah I know! You go to Langkawi like nobody’s business. Beer is cheaper than Coke! ^_^

    You didn’t change much! Tell us your secret. ;) But that photo you took 10 years ago look as if you took it in the 70s. Maybe it’s bcoz of William’s hair? hehe. Jgn marah ye, Mr. William. I also haven’t been to Langkawi for ages. The last time I went there was in secondary school!
