Naturally Langkawi on a Monday


The fig trees at the front of the Andaman Resort were brimming with activity every morning with birds like the Thick-Billed Pigeons, Oriental Pied Hornbills, all flying in for breakfast, followed by a family of Dusky Leaf Langur and a few Long tail Macaques. The latter according to the nature guide would also frequent the mangrove mudflats along the Langkawi's coast, to hunt and catch crabs.

My friend and I spent Monday driving around Langkawi Island in our rented MyVi. Temurun waterfall was near Andaman and we walked up to view the falls up close though it was more like looking at water cascading down the face of a steep cliff - it had not rained much in Langkawi for the past few days.

We stopped for lunch at  Scarborough's, famous for their Fish and Chips. Scarborough's was located in Tanjung Rhu, Langkawi.

We ended up spending the whole afternoon in Kuah town centre. Laksa Power was on afternoon tea menu list before we headed over to Bon Ton restaurant for strawberry smoothies. Bon Ton had a lovely pond which was teeming with waterbirds such as Lesser Whistling Duck, Purple Swamphens, Purple Heron.
