Dear Suzie,
How are you? I hope you are in the best of health.
Guess what? I have just had the most wonderful time in Pulau Langkawi. I went there last week with my aunt Martha. We took a taxi to Kuala Perlis. From there, we took a ferry, across to the island. On reaching the island, aunt Martha’s friend, Mrs Lee, came to pick us up. I was rather disappointed that I didn’t show my disappointment. I wouldn’t dare to offend my aunt or her friend.
We were guests at Mrs Lee’s small but comfortable terrace house which was just 3 km from Tanjung Rhu. Sunset at Tanjung Rhu was just breathtaking. The golden sun, partially hidden behind the distant hills, bathed the sky in bright orange hue. The clear bluish-green water beat across the soft sandy beach while trees swayed to the rhythm of the cool gentle breeze. There we had a picnic until the pale moon rose in the sky. I could say I was on paradise island when I went for a moonlight swim.
The three days simply sped by. Mrs. Lee, our gracious host, filled our days with shopping, sumptuous meals, boat rides to other neighbouring islands and jungle-trekking to a place called the Seven Wells. Well, a city slicker like me got my Fear Factor type of why they didn’t bother aunt Martha. Hmmm!
I’ii stop here for now. Just wait till you see those shots I took with my video camera. Till then, cheerio.
Yours sincerely
