Day 3 – Langkawi

Today we went for a super cheap breakfast across the road – instant coffee and a pancake for something like $3 AUD. It wasn’t great or anything but it did the job.

We took up our usual spot in front of our room on the deck chairs and were later joined by some young uni guys from Sri Lanka who decided to bury themselves in the sand next to us.

One of them took a shine to Claire while I was off buying frozen fruit drinks and by the time I had come back he had invited her to the disco. She politely declined and we headed in to the water for a swim, to which they followed. Eventually the got the picture we weren’t interested, however we did have to pose for some wank bank photos for them in our swimmers. I have to say, they really loved Claire. We discovered that in Malaysia – We are HOT! 🙂

It was starting to look somber weatherwise on the horizon, so we decided to get dressed and head out to lunch to try and beat the storm that was coming.

In retrospect it was a bit silly to decide to eat at the furtherest point from our room on the beach, but we wanted to try The Cliff restaurant since we had heard it was a nice place for cocktails. It sticks out in to the water at the end of Pentai Cenang and gives a great view of the whole beach. It’s all open air to take advantage of the cooling breezes off the sea, but given the storm was coming it was mostly smashing waves and wind. We didn’t mind too much as we were mostly shielded, so it was fun to watch.

We ordered some spicy curry type food and cocktails, which was nice but didn’t wow us like that Tomato Nasi Kandar we couldn’t stop visiting.

By now the storm had hit and rain was lashing the beach. We didn’t have an umbrella but decided the rain didn’t look like it was going to go away so we would have to trek out in it and get wet.

Thinking the street was the better coverage option we headed towards the Duty Free Shopping Centre but were soaked by the time we reached there. We dripped our way through the store looking at all the booze and confectionary Malay people get duty free and picked up a few items of our own.

We headed back to the hotel and since it was raining we couldn’t do much except hang out in the room. TV and books for the rest of the night for us.
