It has been more than 5 years at least since I have been to the beach. Comparing Brunei's beach to that of Pulau Langkawi's is like comparing Liverpool with Manchester United respectively. Well, maybe that's not a good example :p
Anyhoo, the first thing I noticed about the seas of Pulau Langkawi is its endless ocean blueness stretching from right to the left and from my point to the horizon. All blue.
Adding to the beauty of the beach is the presence of life in the sea. Yes, there were lots of small fishes swimming. We actually caught a few baby catfish!
In the midst of our excitement however, was a lurking jellyfish. Actually there were two. One was a baby, the other its mummy. So the only logical thing to do was to swim back to shore.
We complained to the lifeguard but his reply was "Eh? Those kinds of jellyfish won't sting. Only the red ones do" But it's not worth risking our lives by swimming back again. So together with the other strangers at the beach, we managed to bring the jellyfish to land.
Nasty things.Navigating around Langkawi, we stopped by Langkawi's Wildlife Park.This is one worthwhile stop I tells ya! I couldn't help but be impressed. If any of you are planning to go to Langkawi, this place is a MUST!
There are parrots.
REALLY BIG ostriches, almost the size of a Peco-Peco.
And other sorts of bird.
Of course there are plenty of other animals too and not just the birds. There were crocodiles, donkeys, horses, rabbits, and umm some strange animal.
The world must have mixed some Pokemon into this world. Talking about Pokemon, I've recently received an email about weird animals deep in the ocean. Take a look at this:
This thing is real. It's called Axolotl. Many will think it cute, but to me, it's just plain weird. Just look at the smile! *shudders*Back to Langkawi, amongst all those animals is this creative signboard, just outside the crocodile cage.
Yaa I know! They misspelled the word believe!
