seafood paella

I was suppose to blog about my short trip to Langkawi when I came back but I got sick after the trip for 2 weeks. Then came the wisdom tooth problem.
I blame the cheap beer, liquor and my large consumption of the chocolate intake.
I would love to blame the sun but I won’t. Cos I love the sun!
I blame my self for not drinking enough of water thou. Kekekeke

Anyway I was going thru my pics from the trip.
I can’t help but to drool for the seafood that we had over there.
The fresh fish….crabs….. prawns….. oh my .. and the fat juicy ‘lala’ (clams). I had never tasted such succulent ‘lala’ before. It’s really fresh and it’s huge. Well, bigger then the ones in KL.

I didn’t manage to take much food pics cos I was too hungry most of the time and I just could wait to chomp down all the food.

Anyway, the day we landed our butt at Langkawi, we headed to Tapaz and had our late lunch.

Every time I look at this pic.

I can’t help but to crave for their seafood paella.

Night came and we headed off for our duty free shopping.
I never felt that happy before when we step foot at one of the duty free liquor/chocolate shops.

I felt like a little kid in a huge candy shop. Bottles of liquor all displaying on the shelves waiting for me to take them home. I was aiming for some other liquor to add in to my little bar collection. I’ve been buying Malibu every time I visit the duty free shop at the KLIA.

Going from one shelf to another with excitement, smiling to myself like a crazy girl who has not seen so much cheap liquor in my life before.
It’s not like I have not been to Langkawi duty free shops before. This trip would be my 3rd.

My 1st trip the Langkawi was when I was about 11 or 12 years old. It was with my parents and maybe about 3-4 other families. It was my 1st time taking the airplane.
Ah….. who can forget their 1st.
It was the most horrific experience that I can never forget!

I cried the whole entire flight. My ear drums felt like it was going to burst and I just wanted kill myself there and then to stop the pain.

Long story short, my 
1st trip was too young to experiment with alcohol. All I can remember from that trip is the flight and the beach.

2nd trip. 5-6 years back. A day trip. Spend a night there before heading to Penang. I can’t remember anything from the trip. Except we bought a bottle of liquor which we had to hide it in our dirty laundry bag when we went back.

During this trip, I didn’t know why I was so happy to see all those bottles of liquor. Maybe because I knew that we were going to stay there for 3 days and I can have the chance to try out all the miniature bottle liquors that is the cheap before deciding which to bottle I would bring back to KL.

We bought a couple of miniature bottles to try out. 
Dinner at Kuah town was not that fantastic as the review said. 
It was slightly over price and it the was so so … it was quite a let down.

But the next day’s meal was fantastic.
Had lunch at Islandish Seafood Restaurant.
The crabs and steam thai fish style was wonderful.
We went back to Kuah town at night for another round 
of liquor and chocolate shopping. 
Manage to find another restaurant, Weng Fung Restaurant. 
They serve cheap and good food. We had ostrich meat, fried cabbage with sambal, steam lala, and small oyster.

All in all, food was great. Tried out a few nice drinks and at the end, 
I bought back my fav drink, Malibu. Malibu Pineapple.
