Langkawi Trip - Departure

This year 2008 is Visit Kedah year. I was not aware of this till i saw the streamer in Kuala Kedah Jetty. Last weekend was a public holiday for Penang. It was the birthday of the Penang State Governor. So, hubby and his friends plan a 2 days 1 night trip to Langkawi. They wanted a budget holiday so they found out it was cheaper to travel by car to Kuala Kedah and to take a ferry from there to Langkawi.

We started our journey very very early. Cos those guys were afraid they couldn't wake up the next morning so they didn't sleep at all. We had to reach Kuala Kedah by 6.30 a.m. The first ferry will depart at 7.30 a.m. So, this was their plan: To watch midnight movie , then had supper then start our journey to Kuala Kedah. Me and hubby didn't join them for the midnight movie because i still need to do my last session of dialysis.

When they arrived to pick me up, it was only 2.00 a.m. Hubby was late again cos he accidentally fall asleep, i keep on calling him but no one pick up. I got no choice but to call his mum to wake him up. So paiseh to disturb ppl sleeping at this hour. Hubby arrive at my house half an hour later.

Since they are 8 person plus me, we travel in two cars. It was still early so they went to Line Clear to have their supper. After supper, they drive slowly to Kuala Kedah.

We reach Kuala Kedah around 5 something i guess. We parked the car and head towards the jetty. At the Kuala Kedah jetty , we signed up for van rental, hotel and island hopping. Actually we had book a van and 2 rooms. But the travel agent in Kuala Kedah offer us a better price for the hotel room so we book from him instead. The travel agent guy told us, that not many ppl travel to Langkawi nowadays. So they had canceled the earlier ferry at 7.30 a.m to 8.00 a.m.
