Welcome to Langkawi Day 2 Part 5

Tada...We had a bit of rest first before we continue our journey, driving across Langkawi. We were heading towards the Seven Wells but we mistakenly drove into Shereton. Shereton was such a beautiful place. It looks familiar only to realize that I have stayed there when I was 10 or 11. Omg, that's like so damn long ago!

That's us under the hot sun, but with the help of the hut, we managed to get some shed for a couple of minutes

We arrived at the base line of Telaga Tujuh. It was rather steep and climbing hundreds of steps is no joke under the hot weather. Though there were trees for shed, it's not that much of a help either. After 300 plus over steps, it was too much to take. When we looked up, it was like never-ending. Three of us then decided to take a U-turn and head towards the waterfall instead. It is said that at the top of the place and the wells, fairies came to bathe.

It was very cooling there at the waterfall. On the way, there were so many monkeys around and they looked like as if they wanted to attack innocent souls like us haha

Ahh, what a beautiful place. We were there for hours. After so many people came and left, we were still there enjoying the breeze.

Finally, the Vios that we rented. Haha. I guess this is the only time that I actually enjoy driving. I have always liked being driven around haha. The carpark fee only cost 2 bucks. So park all you want.

VMA

If you are the one that stays connected to the social media, you would have seen the video or article of Miley Cyrus in the VMAs by now.

I would not have thought that she will be to this extent. From the very beginning, I just did not like her. You know, humans give out a certain vibe. I just can't remember what vibes she gave out from the beginning but it's not something that we all like.

Look at it now, goodness me. What she did there was absolutely disturbing and aggravating. She should honestly be banned from the public. We all know, all she ever wanted was that attention. Whether it's positive or negative, it does not really matter. She just wants and needs it. It was very unnecessary for her to act in such a way and definitely very inappropriate.

Normal guys and girls alike, it's something we do not wanna see. Her actions were detestable. It really appears like she's from a very backward, coarse and rough upbringing. Such a life, oh damn.

Welcome to Langkawi Day 2 Part 4

This is the forth part of Day 2.We went to quite a few places on Day 2 as that's THE only day we can entirely spend there in Langkawi. The day before was when we arrived, and the next day was when we flew back to KL.

A lil exposed

The three of us with the view behind us. It was really really hot that day

 The three girls at the top haha

After getting burned, we felt so exhausted. Time for a chill out Coke. On the way down.

Finally, we are down. I forgot what was the exact duration. You can't see it from the picture, but it was scorching hot. For me to be still alive at this point of time, it's a miracle.

Mutual Attraction vs Opposite Attracts

So you have heard about opposite attracts or mutual attraction. Perhaps, 10 years ago, they say opposite attracts. Now, they say mutual attraction.

In my belief, I have always trusted mutual attraction more. As a human being, we are always attracted and feel more comfortable with people who are more familiar or similar to us. Thus, it's very normal for us to be attracted to people with similar interest, similar beliefs.

But, when we talk about opposite attracts, I believe that it concerns more on the habits, lifestyle and etc not so much on life perspectives. Even that, I find it really difficult to live with. Imagine you drink, you like to party, you sleep during the day but that other person loves day time, sports, movies and love to be home early. Of course, there are compromise, but still, that's not your nature. How can you enjoy something you have no interest in, right? Maybe, you feel that it's a great thing to do and a sacrifice. But, after awhile, you will feel suffocated and you will start to think why do you need to change how you live for someone else. You will feel that's too much of a sacrifice.

That's one thing, and people with different perspectives are even much more difficult. Let's just take the easiest topics, friends. For one, not everyone can be friends, you need to be choosy and hi-bye are not friends. The other who says, that's my friend when they have not spoken more than 10 words to each other. That's a major issue. I don't think I can accept it. Hmm. Obviously, it depends how open and how you adapt to this. As a person, we need to have certain requirements and principles. No matter how people try to change how I have already thought in my mind, I wouldn't. Therefore, mutual please. Haha.

Welcome to Langkawi Day 2 Part 3

Ahh ... after at the beach, we went back to La Pari Pari to have our lovely breakfast. fatCUPID serves the best ever breakfast. Though breakfast is complimentary, we have the choice to choose any other breakfast from the menu and in the end of it, they will just minus off 20 bucks. I mean, all 3 eat the same thing is gonna be boring, right? We chose all 3 different sets.

Look at it! How cute is the sunny side up! haha

That's me by the way with the healthy breakfast I had

Don't judge by how it looks. Maybe my photo taking skill needs major improvement. It was delicious!

The moment we reached back to our place, it started pouring like mad. We went blank, like wth? What just happened? It was a sheer moment. How cool was that?

Initially, we wanted to go to Mahkam Mahsuri. But, Waze took us to a village-like-exhibition place. That place was closed. It doesn't look like the place we have pictured in our mind. It was supposed to be an openarea. As we have learned in history, it's a graveyard. We ended up here, the cable car. It has a panorama breathtaking view of Langkawi. We found out then that the skybrige was close, and it had been closed for more than a year now. Hello? Do they expect tourists to go for the cable car and not the skybridge. Are they out of their mind? Get that sorted, dude. My gawd ...

Over-rated word

According to a definition, betrayal means unfaithful, disloyal or cheating.

But, what happens is I notice that this word had been over-rated. Betrayal is a very deep word and it's meant to use only when one experience the words defined above.

I have come to know certain people with different definitions of betrayal. I feel that's just way too subtle to be described as a betrayal. Instead, it's just a mere thing where people ditch you for a meal. I don't think that's a betrayal.

Also, there are people who called others betraying because things just didn't turn out to be like how this person wanted. Just because the partners broke up with this person, and that's not because of any cheating or third party involved, they are called betrayals.

At the same time, you can call this person betraying too because what was promised earlier was not acted upon it. Interesting people we have here in the world eh? Things happen, parting ways is part of life, and these people need to learn to grow up.

Welcome to Langkawi Day 2 Part 2

All these pictures were taken in Pantai Cenang. Since the weather was great, we decided to spend our time a little longer there. As long as we have the time to have our breakfast later back in fatCupid, then it's all good.

I love the blue sky. Though it looks cloudy, but it was actually quite sunny. You know how pictures don't justify the brightness and the actual sunshine

Despite not having anything for breakfast yet, we manage to preserve the energy to jump

That's me. haha. I love it that there's sunshine yet windy.

Strolling along the beach haha

Blue blue sky :D Though I know sunshine is good, but I am a little afraid of it at the same time. I do not have naturally fair skin. The tone I have is based on hard work. Once I get tanned, it takes months and years to have my original color back. Once upon a time in Langkawi 4 years ago, it took my skin just 2 hours under the sun and it became black & white. It needed one whole freaking month to get my skin to be completely peeled off. It took the next month to just have my skin grow back. Needless to say, it took at least one year away from the sun to get a tone where I can at least accept. At least accept meaning there's no huge difference between my face and my shoulder.

Scammers

Human greed is really atrocious and incredible. There are just so many people getting cheated, yet others fall prey. Therefore, sometimes, you can't blame the culprits, but the victims too.

It's of course the culprits to be blamed, but how bout the victims? One will feel they are the victims, they get cheated and scammed, yet they are being blamed? Why? Simply because they are being themselves - greedy. If they are not greedy, they wouldn't fall victim to these people.

If you think that certain things are too good to be true, 99.999% it really is. Nothing comes free in this world, and regardless where you are in the world, the same theory applies.

If something is offered to you, is there a reason a complete stranger will wanna award that to you? Obviously, they are getting something. If you feel doubtful, do not ever hesitate to research. But, even at that point of time, I'll say to withdraw whatever you have been intended to do. Feelings are most of the time right.

It's amazing that people actually pay thousands of money to someone they don't know. How many companies in the world had been focusing on fake emails. For instance, you login to your bank account, you see security alert at the front page as a stern warning. That's just ONE of the many that I can name of. After hearing these horrifying stories, I wonder why do people not learn until they become the victim themselves. What is wrong with RESEARCH? Everything requires research now. If you don't, that's what happen. Lose the money and the best part is you don't know who you have lost to. If you use anything instant, you don't even know who this person is or where they are from. They take the money and good luck to you. All you can do is to make a police report and hope for a miracle. You know how often miracle happens, right?

"Prevention is better than cure" dude. With all the emphasis, importance, and highlights being stressed by different parties over the years, this is still happening. Guys, girls, use your mind, use your eyes, and use your feelings. You wanna get back the money? Really, this is purely your own stupidity. You can't blame anyone.

Welcome to Langkawi Day 2 Part 1

After a good night's sleep, we started the day earlier on our second day. Early as in 7-ish 8. That's EARLY for me. Headache gone, and so, we can go crazy on the 2nd day haha. All the way out ^^ We headed to the nearest beach, probably just 5 minutes away from where we stayed. It's the most well known beach to the tourists, Pantai Cenang.

I'm sorry but there are a lot of pictures from Pantai Cenang. After so long without any morning sun, I think it's the time of the year where we should get some vitamins into our skin. The weather looks just perfect for us to go around the island.

Time to relax, before even doing anything haha. We were so in love with this place.

Walking by the beach

I don't know why but I just like this picture. Oh, we didn't build that, we just borrowed the sight of it hehe.

The famous I love you sign hehe

Finally, the three of us. That's Kakak on the right, and Dede on the left.

Conjuring

I know this had been the talk of the town now. You can hear along the streets, or even your friends would ask you "Have you watched Conjuring?"

This is a very stressful moment. Based on the convincing skills of some people, I actually tagged along to watch this movie. As this is based on a true story, I really wanna know what can happen.

The spectral feeling started at noon itself when I was thinking if I can just pull back or if anyone wanted the ticket. I was so frightened just imagining the situation I'll be in. Background story, my last horror movie was Ju-on which was a decade ago. Even the light one I cannot take it, what more this.

I can say, it's freaking scary. I was so stressed up that I almost walked out. I just couldn't take it then instead of watching at some point, I whatsapp-ed. Oh and not to forget I was using my jacket either to cover my eyes or ears. So basically I didn't watch the movie you think? Wrong. I know exactly what happened because most parts were too abrupt.

I didn't know there's something called paranormal investigators. 8 generations of family had died before that and as obvious as it had sounded, the farmhouse had been cursed. Ah the doll in the movie looks so freaking ugly but the actual doll looks kinda cute haha. Ed and Lorraine Warren not only investigate this episode, but more too such as Amityville and some others. However, this has got to be the most challenged investigations.

What I was really taken aback was the exorcism that Ed had conducted though he has no prior experience hands-on. He only assisted during the past experience. It looks really creepy and horrifying that it will go down the spine. Now I know that this will exhaust the victim to the max. Oh, I really didn't know that those that had not been baptized are not allowed to have the Priest/Father to have exorcism conducted on them. Instead, they need to wait the approval all the way from the Pope himself. Woah! That's really an information.

If being asked again, despite watching it once, will I go the second time? Upright NO!

Welcome to Langkawi Day 1 Part 4

This is the Part 4... of Day 1. It was all pictures taking. After enjoying the wind and finished with our pictures, we headed over to the mall beside it. Ah and I thought it was gonna be alright, it was at least gonna be something interesting. Who would have thought, it looks so dodgy, it looks so run down. I guess, the most happening one has got to be Starbucks? =.=



 
The pictures we took. Of course, these are the few ones that were picked out of the never ending pictures that we actually took. 

We headed over to Kuah town for our "shopping" and this is what we got. Of course, there are other drinks too in which we drank it other nights. Ah, I was down with quite a bad headache on that day, so we didn't really drink. We slept off.

A lonely world

Loneliness:
affected with, characterized by, or causing a depressing feeling of being alone; lonesome. 

Alone: 
separate, apart, or isolated from others
Are you capable of being alone? Will you feel lonely? Though these 2 words are made of the base word "lone" it carries very different definitions. One can be alone for years and not feel lonely. Another can be surrounded by people yet feel lonely.

Which are you? Well, I am alone and I don't feel lonely. To be honest, I was probably lonely at some point of my life when I don't have people around me. I always feel sad, like as if a small part of me dies inside me after every outing. It's like, those temporary happiness and laughter will end somehow and I will be back to Square One. I just cannot be alone as that made me feel lonely.
  
It's not a bad thing to be alone. It doesn't mean you are a lonesome or forlorn. It just really means that you need some quality time for yourself.  I do know people who just cannot be alone. Their world crumble when they need to be alone. There's definitely a time when you need to be alone. It's inevitable. I think I'll go insane if I need to face people all the time. When I'm alone, I feel serene.  

I'm not sure if one should feel pity towards people like that who can't be alone. They are lonely. The best cure for one's loneliness is be your own best friend. If you can't, why will people wanna be your best friend? If you, can't even accept you for who you are and can't be comfortable in your own skin, then probably others feel that same way towards you.  

Those who feel lonely probably over-think about a lot of things. They are afraid of the self-reflection process. People like that often think about the past that cannot be changed, or future that hasn't arrived. One thing for sure, when you look for a partner, don't look for someone that complete you because this can never be. Don't be with someone because you are bored or lonely, be with them just because you wanna be with them. Don't depend on them for whatever reason there is or even peer pressure.  

Therefore, it starts from yourselves. Be your own best friend is the best cure for all loneliness in the world. Then, others will follow through. Life will be better. Otherwise, when a person leaves your side whether it's your partner or your friends, you feel disabled because from a world with full of lights, it becomes a dark, gloomy, lonely world.

Welcome to Langkawi Day 1 Part 3

This is where the journey begins. We headed to Kuah Jetty first for the sight of the eagle. We didn't have any sightseeing the last time we were there as we were there just for the sake of the alcohol. Damn.
That was us. Haha. Arrived ^^ Weather was perfect.

Yeah we started. That isn't KL so it's okay :D

This is one of the main attractions in Langkawi. It's called Eagle Square or Dataran Lang. It's the 12 metre tall eagle scrulpture with the fountains surrounding it, together with some nice terraces and bridges. Great place to just enjoy the breeze and look at the ferries. haha.

This was taken from just below the eagle. Very nice view in the evening :D

Learn to trust

I actually don't understand jealousy. People frequently tell me that it's good to have a little but not too much. I always think to myself, I thought it's either it's there or it isn't. If it's there, it just means terror and horror. To me, it just really means that person, be it girl or guy, is insecure and wants to take control of your life.

Do you know what's attractive? One of the characteristic is being open minded and not jealous. That is, by my own belief, IS attractive. This jealousy issue is affecting many couples out there. In this time and age, it's overly common and I get all the statements all the time saying, single life is really great. Now, the more I wanna be how I have always been. haha.

It may start with just being jealous, and it will eventually lead to being possessive towards the partner. This trait is so so ugly. A girl, a guy, both are the same, it's freaking ugly, being loathsome.

In the first place, why be jealous? It's because of your own insecurities. It's because you just don't trust your partner. Why don't you wanna trust your partner? Did something happened? By hook and by crook you cannot trust your partner, why are you guys still together? Isn't a relationship there based on trust? If there's no trust, what is the whole meaning of this? You're not a cop, and your partner isn't a criminal.

Jealousy creates a long list of problems. That is the core problem. It leads to many other things. Just because your partner is jealous does not mean that you have or need to stop doing things that you like. If you have a jealous bf who is jealous of all your friends, does this mean that you need to change your lifestyle and stop seeing your friends? I bet you will go insane after awhile. A work life and him life? No way. Do not conform to appease him or her.

I always believe that you cannot force anyone to do anything, absolutely. If that person has the heart with you, he or she will stay, be loyal no matter what. You don't have to stop that person and keep on checking. If the heart isn't there anymore, you will not be able to stop your partner from doing what he or she does.

I have found a quote from an article that just illustrated and portrayed what I feel.

“Relationships — of all kinds — are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers. You may hold on to some of it, but most will be spilled. A relationship is like that. Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person, it is likely to remain intact. But hold too tightly, too possessively, and the relationship slips away and is lost.”

The more you hold on to someone, the tighter it feels, the less oxygen one gets and that leads to suffocation. Being possessive won't change anything, except, more issues occur. Instead of having a peaceful happy life, it's all about stress, issues, arguments and may then lead to bitterness and then resentment. Perhaps, some people are naturally jealous. But, it is how you act upon it. Don't ever allow these attributes dominate you.

Let's put it this way, if the relationship is meant and fated to be, it somehow will happen. Otherwise, that is not the one meant for you. Base line, learn to trust.

Welcome to Langkawi Day 1 Part 2

Ahh, the moment we arrived at the place,I was so in love with it, and the people there. When I first saw it online, I was like "Wow." When we finally arrived at the entrance, "OMG WOAHH" that was how it was.

They have only 12 units there, so not too many. It's very limited, so if you wanna stay here, be sure to book it early

OMG I love this so much. The only thing is that they don't leave it this way throughout the nite. When the restaurant closes, they fold the bed up too.

Ohh the swimming pool. I must say that this swimming pool is way too open haha. The restaurant is just right beside it. The water tasted like salt water instead of the normal pool water.

Ahh that's their reception and how creative this looks. I have always loved seeing things like that.

The name of the place you wonder? La Pari Pari and the restaurant is fatCUPID. It's a family run business. How amazing they have run this.
