Naturally Langkawi on a Sunday

The flight from KL (via KLIA2) to Langkawi was less than an hour. My friend and I arrived safely in Langkawi Airport on a very bright sunny Sunday morning. First stop was at Telaga Harbour for brunch at The Loaf. My "Cube Coffee" and Smoked Salmon Foccacia took quite a while to arrive but then it was a Sunday after all. The Loaf Langkawi is still the only Cafe in all of Malaysia that serves this "Cube Coffee".

We made a quick stop at Oriental Village to visit the 2014 Asian Bird Fair that was being hosted by Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) before checking in at the Andaman Resort. Most of the afternoon was spent gazing out at the clear waters of the Andaman sea from the deck chair. The Resort's Coral Nursery was an amazing initiative by the Resort to regenerate the corals, a large part of which had been wiped out by the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami.

We could feed the fishes in the Coral Nursery though

Can you spot Nemo in the Sea Anemone above?

We thought this was a coral but it was actually a Starfish which lived in this nursery




We explored the grounds of the Andaman Resort that Sunday night with our nature guide looking for Colugos and saw these flying lemurs gliding so silently from one tree to the next. Fruit bats, flying squirrels and the red eye shine of the civet cat were also seen during this interesting night walk. Not to forget the resident Tokay Gecko which lives under the eaves of the balcony in the Reception area of the Resort.
