Frangipani Langkawi Resort & Spa

I started my new job with Asian Overland on Monday, 28 August as the Human Resource and Administration Manager handling their group of companies in Malaysia. On Tuesday, 29 August, they flew me into the island of Langkawi for work, yes work and not for a vacation. So presently, I am spending a lot of my time attached to their wholly owned resort, the Frangipani Langkawi Resort & Spa (former known as Langkawi Village Resort) here in the Island of Langkawi, off the coast of Kedah/Perlis. On the 1 September, Jules decided to take a road trip with Moggy, tagging along was Kristin and Auntie(Jules & Kristin's Mom) to come meet me at the resort and at the same time for some holiday in the sun and the beach. That friday morning, they set out at 9.30am travelling up towards north to Kuala Kedah for the express ferry ride into the Island of Langkawi. I picked them up from the Kuah Ferry Terminal at about 6.15pm to Frangipani Langkawi Resort & Spa. After freshening up, I took them to the town of Kuah for dinner at this seafood place called "Wonderful". Went for some duty free shopping incuding the one at the Underwater World Langkawi.
Following day as I had to work, they hung around the resort until I took them out for late lunch at almost 2pm. Chilled out at the beach during sunset with some beers. Did not have dinner until after 9.00pm at a nearby Thai Seafood Restaurant. Food was nice, especially the lala(Clams), the mantis prawns and the Grouper....with some other side vegetable dishes, the damage came up to about RM180, foot by Aunty.
Sunday, took them almost the whole of the island as they wanted to see the more exclusive Datai and the Andaman. Subsequently we went to the newly constructed Cable Car. This is a very unique experience as when you get to the top, there is a steel constructed curved suspension bridge. When it gets real cloudy, you cannot see the other end of the bridge. Total altitude was 605 meters above sea level. They returned to KL on the following Monday. I flew back to KL on Wednesday but will be returning to Langkawi this coming Tuesday, 12 Sept, this time will be there for at least two weeks.
