Cuti-cuti Langkawi – Part 1

We went to Langkawi last weekend for a 4D/3N visit with my younger sister's family and mum. Sis had just given birth to her third child and it's customary for her to go on a holiday (she went to Kuching and Kota Kinabalu respectively for her 1st and 2nd child) before her maternity leave ends. When she suggested that we go together, we agreed as hubby had never been to Langkawi before. I only realized that it was revision week at Yiu Yiu's kindy after we booked the flights, so she had to miss that. Hopefully she wouldn't flunk her exams next week :-)

We stayed at the Sheraton Langkawi Beach Resort. The rooms are housed in chalets scattered all over the resort amidst lush greenery, and it's not unusual to see monkey and squirrels roaming about. The rooms are incredibly spacious, and comes with a huge balcony.

We asked for a baby cot in each room, and despite that, there was still ample space for the children to run about. My only complaint was having to rely on buggy ride to and from the lobby.

The children enjoyed spending time by the beach and in the pool.

We rented a Toyota Innova so it was convenient driving about the island to visit some of the attractions, as well as eating out.

Just drop by to say "Hello".

Happy holidays!
No worry about Yiu Yiu's exams, I never do revision with my daughter too. Yiu Yiu is still young, let her enjoy childhood without exam stress.

Wai Leng, who's using the sling? So funny that she still support the baby with her hands, so lovingly instead of free hands (being supported by the fabric)

I stayed in Sheraton when I was there too like 20 years ago! Is the place still as good? I like the chalets... esp the bathroom over looking the bed!

smallkucing/HW - school holidays is upon us. Quick quick make a trip there :-)

Buffafly - the weather was super hot in Langkawi so I'm sure my little nephew enjoyed the dip in the pool.

Shenny's mommy - I hardly do revision with her too, except during exam time. At least just go through with her to make sure she knows what to expect during the exam.

Jazz - and take lots of photos for us to ogle at :-)

Chinnee - my mum was the one using the sling in the picture. My little nephew is too kpc to stay inside the sling when he's awake and will keep on wriggling non-stop so mum had to "release" him from the sling - hence the need to support him.

zmm - yeah, coz she said it'll be difficult for her to take leave once she starts work.

Angeleyes - I love the spaciousness of the rooms, but frankly, the fittings, etc are in dire need of sprucing up.
