The Awana Porto Malai Resort is a Mediterranean inspired resort with ocean views which located at Pantai Tengah. Services and facilities were well organized besides of having wide range of accomodation. The most attracting thing is that they have a broadwalk where the views of the Pregnant Maiden Island can be delighted. Island hopping, night fishing trips and private boat rides can also be arranged as they have their own port.

Langkawi Trip: Underwater World

Posted by wan nah

Traveling around Langkawi is either by car or taxi. Car rentals were available at the Langkawi airport with wide ranges of price according to the car you may want to rent. Basically, the cheapest car (kancil) was rent at a rate of RM90 for one day without petrol.

Well for us, we planned to take taxi because we were the first-time visitors there and were so afraid that we will be lost. Taxi to our hotel cost RM22 and the rate of taxi to respective destination was not dependant on the meter but on the rate fixed by the government itself. Anyone who charge higher than the respective price can be sue.

After the arrival at Awana Porto Malai Resort, it was about time to have lunch as our stomach were starving..

Since we were not familiar with the place, therefore, we took a taxi ride to the chocolate duty-free shop which we have seen during our journey to the resort. Taxi ride from our resort to the duty-free shop cost us about RM6. We then walk around there and chose to stop by at the Restoran Kampung Siam.

Foolind around in the souvenir shop..

After visiting the Underwater World, we walked around the duty-free shop. Langkawi was best known for its duty free liquors and chocolates and it is really cheap!! I am a chocoholic and that's why lots of chocolates were bought from there..and since the liquors were duty free, everyone is only allowed to bring 1 litres across the kastam. As for us, we bought a Martell which cost RM360 and a Merlot Red Wine which cost RM59.

Dinner ended and we walked around that place since the lightings along the streets were beautifully decorated. On our way of walking along the streets, we then reached a shop named Coral Island where you can register yourself for snorkelling in Pulau Payar. Therefore, we registered ourself for the next morning trip in which a bus will to fetch us from our resort at 8am. Snorkelling cost us about RM150 per person.

After that, we took taxi back to resort since we have to wake up early in the next morning.

Posted by wan nah

It's time for finding new food on 2010!!
I had a great one with my parents with the special offer for senior citizen of RM35++ and for me, RM55++.

As usual, New Year has been always crowded with people especially in the shopping mall, so my parents decided to satisfy their taste buds with FOODS!!
Me, as usual, accompanied them..to the Hotel Federal...
Well, according to my mom, Hotel Federal had a longed history whereby it existed since my mum was still in her primary school..because of their location which is nearby those popular shopping mall such as Lot10, Low Yat, Pavillion, Sungai Wang and etc, therefore, their hotel room rate was also not cheap. It is rated as a 5 star hotel because of their location, service and facilities provided.
