Langkawi Getaway.


This post is a summary of my short trip to Langkawi for Aaron's birthday on May. I got the tickets less than two weeks before. There is no island hopping and too many touristy spots. We just relaxed the way through. 

Waking up for breakfast , get back to sleep , head out for lunch , chill around , overlooking sunset , drink a little at night. 


View from our balcony . 

We stayed at Resort World Langkawi. 

This resort is secluded at the end of the strand of resorts , almost into the woods close to the fishing village. It is really peaceful and quiet. The view is fantastic. The downside is , it does not have any access to the beach. 

Overall, it was good - not to mention, the price is alright too. 


the view from the infinity pool is fantastic too.



For Sunset , please head to Yellow Cafe by the beach.

I like how we sit on beanbags ,  our toes in the sand overlooking sunset with cheap cold beers in our hand. 












this series of photos shall be : you gave me the tumblr love .


For me, sunsets is way more romantic than sunrise. 

Yes, sunrise is meaningful resembling that we wake up to each other. I'd prefer to end my good days and bad days with you, over sunsets. 


We purposely drove to Smiling Buffalo for coffee, however we arrived too late. It's closed at 4pm. The owner suggest us to head to their sister cafe by the beach ; and off we go -


Huggin' Hippo, is located on the same row of Yellow Cafe . 



I love their interior .


We decided to sit outside for sunset - the owners were singing Jason Marz with classical instrument. 



This is my first time, sippin on coffee overlooking sunset by the beach. The combination of two of my favourite things seems pretty alright. I also tried fried cerodok the first time. 

We strolled by the beach for a while before heading to my favourite restaurant in Langkawi , for his birthday dinner. This restaurant is a must visit for me in Langkawi - where I used to mention here.


For dinner - Red Tomato .


They serve italian / french fusion with hearty portion. The price is reasonable too. I prefer to visit during dinner. I like how they change the ambiance completely at night. 


The presentation might not meet up to expectation but it taste really good. 


This trip was really relaxing. 

I always prefer the city because the island life never made sense to me. The sunset seems to look different with him.  Now, the romantic quotes mentioning about beaches and sunset make sense to me.
