Family trip to Langkawi (part 2)

I woke up rather early on the next day, while most of them were still sleeping, i made myself a cup of coffee and sat outside the balcony. It felt like paradise, quiet with the sounds of the insects and birds.

we skipped breakfast because everyone slept passed 10pm. Headed to Kuah town for lunch and cruised around the town. We went to Seven Wells waterfall because the skybridge and skycab were close for maintenance. What a waste.

Had coconut water before going up to the waterfall, the weather was killing me. I'm sure it was 70◦C, because the heat almost cook me up ..

we need to hike up a little bit to the waterfall

It was really sloppy, we can barely stand straight

off we go to the waterfall only, Seven Wells is another 15-20mins hike up and we gave up on that.

my dad has the better stamina than all of us, did i tell you that he and his friends conquered the great Gunung Tahan? Took them 8 days 7 nights of hiking and camping in the jungle with haversack weighted heavier than me, great achievement!

other than that, when we were hiking up Gunung Kinabalu, dad carried my bag pack in front and his at his back with one hand carrying 5 lits of water, imagine that! he is 60 this year, just in case you're curious :)

the beach is rather quiet that day, i was expecting to see crowds and kids running around and lots of water sports.

DO NOT STARE AT MY STOMACH, i know my tummy is ermmm, "layering" hahaha!! I've gained so much weight and i can't be bothered anymore, given up on lose weight

when the sky got darker, we headed back to the hotel and get ready for dinner. Went to this place called 夜猫子 seafood restaurant in Kuah town and had a bad experience. We waited for 30 mins and noticed that the other 3 tables who ordered before us were complaining as well. as we waited longer we began to be impatience and the lady on the other table told us furiously that they had waited for almost 90 mins.

pissed. we decided to cancel our orders and went to next door.

Next morning, we checked out at around 9am so we'll have more time shopping for chocolate.

The best thing about dad is that he NEVER complain on anything! we spent so much time on the floor arranging our things and he quietly stood one side waited and enjoy his beer.

last picture of the day before we headed back to mainland. Dad dropped me at Autocity and shawn picked me up from there, I'm so lucky :) 

This trip was short and to be honest, quite tiring, but I'm happy to get to spent time with my family. I don't get to see them often, not even my dad, hence whenever they is family trip, despite anywhere i will try to make it, because this is the only time i get to spend quality time with them. and I'm sure there will be more in the future, my family are like me, they can't sit still, we love travelling and exploring new places.
