Langkawi Trip: 28th June – 1 July 2007
3 nights at the secluded Andaman resort was a good breakaway from the bustling city. Infact this is the real trip we had in the last two years (yeah.. I was full of excuses speaking of vacation during my pregnancy and after Ryan’s arrival, my excuse was that Ryan was then too small to travel). Now that he’s 14 months, no more excuse.
Ryan behaved really well throughout our stay in Langkawi. The one hour flight was a breeze as well. Ryan slept through the hour long flight journey and only woke up when the plane landed. Phew~~ but as usual the little fella was acting polymath all the time, busy looking around and exploring his surroundings as soon as we touched down.
We checked into the resort around 2pm and after a quick lunch in our room, all three of us dozed off like in nanoseconds. We woke up 3 hours later and zoomed down the beach area to watch the sunset. Ryan had his first taste of walking on the beach. He acted chary at first but after awhile he was alright. But I wasn’t too comfortable and was pestering hubs to leave upon seeing many crab nests on the sand. Don’t ask me why. I tak tahan (cannot accept) the round shape sands the craps made; simply eerily scary. Geli! So off we go to the wading pool. Ryan warmed up instantly at the pool; as if he has been to the pool many many times when in fact it was his virgin dip into a pool. He certainly had good time kicking water here and there. Glad he enjoyed.
The next few days were mostly spent in the resort itself, in the pool and wandering around. We also brought Ryan to the Kids Club twice as we felt he would have missed his toys, balloons, soft balls etc. Sure enough. He had a good time running around the play area, throwing the softballs and messing up the place.
The only regret we had was not able to visit the spa. Have heard so much about it but with a baby, we both decided to give it a miss although the resort does offer baby sitting facility. Nah… how could I leave my baby with a stranger?
Overall, it was a FUN, FUN, FUN trip. Service was good at the resort. The staff greeted us by name and were quite attentive on our requests. Just a little let down in terms of cleanliness (u know, the usual under bed area). On the other hand, Ryan proved to be much well behaved than I have anticipated. Very cooperative and was at his bestest behaviour most of the time; what more to ask for from a 14 month old baby. Oh…except that he still can’t stay occupied throughout our meals *slap head*
