Weekend at Pangkor Laut Resort (PLR)

Warning: Posts heavily laden with photos ahead

Day 1
We left KL early in the morning, at about 7.15am, stopping in Bidor for the famous Pun Chun herbal duck noodles. Can you believe that I’ve never had the duck noodles despite growing up in Bidor? Back then, we locals considered Pun Chun to be very expensive, as we knew their price was meant for the many tourists passing by Bidor. I only had it recently in Kota Kemuning, where they opened a branch early this year. Oppsss, sorry for the digression.

We arrived in Lumut just in time to catch the 11am ferry to PLR. The ferry took about an hour and we promptly checked into our beach villas upon arrival at the resort slightly after noon.

Yiu Yiu and Yihao couldn’t wait to get into the water so we quickly fill up the open air bath tub for them to splash around.

We then proceeded to the beach @ Emerald Bay at the other side of the island by taking the resort’s shuttle van.

The waves were pretty strong and Yiu Yiu was initially hesitant to get into the water. She was contented just building sand castles...

But eventually warmed up and started chasing the waves.

I love these shots of Yiu Yiu and Yihao...they looked so happy and carefree in these photos

We went back to the room about two hours later. We had wanted to order some room service for a late lunch but to our dismay, PLR does not offer room service. Luckily we brought fruits and other snacks so at least our tummy was filled. We tried getting the kids to have a nap before dinner but the two little monkeys just refused to sleep. As such, we took them for a walk around the resort, and spotted three huge monitor lizards, various birds and fishes, crabs and monkeys near the sea villas.

The moment we set our foot in Feast Village for dinner, both of them fell asleep! The staff promptly arranged some chairs so we could lay them on the chair to sleep.

I ordered the Cajun pasta, sis ordered a bibimbap while mum had nasi kandar.

Food is expensive in PLR and our dinner rang up a bill of RM225++. Luckily, our entourage is entitled to a 50% discount on all food and beverages upon check-out.

Mimi - I like that too, they look so cute with their matching swimming costumes.

Jazz - yeah, the food is soooo expensive, quality wise, OK only. Not worth the price paid but what to do, it's an isolated island and you have no choice but dine in their restaurants.

Kittycat - you'll soon be back in sunny tropical Penang, won't you?

That swimsuit that my sister was wearing actually belongs to my elder sister. My younger sister doesn't have one since she can't swim :-)
