Date Night Langkawi
Today followed a pattern that seems to have been happily set – chores all morning, lunch and a bimble to the pool. Val (Kereru) suggested the 18:15 ferry and supper at the little eateries along from the jetty ‘on the other side’. Sounds like a wonderful plan as we haven’t yet set foot off the island of Rebak. Waiting for the ferry I took the pictures that are posted in the little ferry office showing ‘standards’ for the Resort staff.
Hair seems reasonable and holds the greatest sway with three different posters.
Sideburns, rings and watches.
There are a few dodgy carpet squares amongst yachties who would fail at interview on the moustache front.......
My favourite was the monobrow embargo. We know a few that would have to ‘do’ more than once a month.....
All peaceful looking toward ‘D’, ‘E’ and hard standing.
Soon aboard for the ten minute crossing to Langkawi.
From the little jetty we could see the beach, a fifteen minute walk away. Just around the corner is Cenang Beach (said Chenang) – a popular tourist destination for Europeans as the heat here is gentler and the seasons very predictable. We have just finished the Wet Season which will make a pleasant change from it tipping down every day.
We watched the world go by and the sunset, whilst my new grandma – a beatific, cherubic, smiling Muslim lady prepared our eight satay sticks and the best satay sauce. She had asked for a lady to come from another stall to translate for us. She sent ‘up the way’ for portions of rice and to another stall for cans of Coke. A delicious feast that came to thirty eight Wingnuts (Ringgits) or six pounds eight three for the four of us....... We will be back often methinks.
Time to read the Rules of the Ferry and wait to be called to board the last one home at 19:45. Home for an episode of something.
ALL IN ALL SPLENDID FOOD
A VERY NICE EVENING
