I spent my my most recent long weekend in Langkawi, Malaysia. Air Asia had a sweet deal about 4 months ago, and I'm so glad I impulsively bought tickets. Langkawi was peaceful, adorable, and so much fun for a little weekend getaway.
Where I stayed, on Cenang Beach
So cute and quiet little road where the guesthouse was.
I passed by this multiple times a day, and just loved it!
 Underwater World:
Wanted me to be his mommy, of course.
Chillin' in the Arctic

Island Hopping:
"Pregnant Lady Mountain" Can you see her??
Pretty ride.
Eagle Feeding
Cute little island stop.
He wanted to sit with me. But didn't want his picture taken.

Maybe 2 minutes after this picture was taken we were all running for shelter from the storm that came out of nowhere. There were hundreds of people on the beach all crowded under the tiniest shelter to get out of the rain and crazy strong winds. Island weather doesn't play.

Cable Car:

Beautiful surrounding area!

Going up. The weather was bad, so we didn't see much. 
Good Eats:

Steamboat Seafood with new friends

The most delicious smoked salmon sandwich at Red Tomato

Sunset to end the trip!

Batik Painting

At a perfect distance away from where we live, there is a Craft Complex. They sell Malaysian handi-crafts and there's a little museum inside. My favorite part is the little hut where you paint your own batik. Batik is a piece of cloth, with wax drawn designs, and then dyed with ink to make some super pretty colors. At the do-it-yourself hut they have cutesy little designs to choose from. Pin, Kevin, and I spent a little part of our Saturday afternoon out there.

Me and my super fun batiks!
