Reading between the Lines Posted by Jeffrey on December 19, 2003 in Pulau Langkawi, Malaysia
Yesterday I awoke early and had a coffee on the beach in the morning light, then I got picked up and went on a little Island Hopping tour thing... we went to a decent sized island and walked to a fresh water lake on it, and I did a little paddleboating around, watched the monkeys chill out on the jetty, and then went to another island, where i sat on the beach in the sun and read with a nice cold drink. Here I watched a lady buy a bag of chips, and just when she sat down at the table with them, a monkey ran and jumped up and took them right out of her hands, she screamed and the monkey went and ate the chips behind a tree... the dudes working there had obviously seen this before because they brought out their slingshots and convinced the monkeys to move to another dwelling place (: After that we boated to a cove and watched eagles swoop and hunt fish, oh yeah, and we also stopped at a shark net where our boat guy fed the baby sharks. Ask me what I did for the rest of yesterday and the whole day today... go ahead, ask. OK fine, I'll just tell you: I just sat on the beach and read... taking in the beautiful island beach scene and sun.... Tomorrow I will arise early and catch a ferry then a bus back to KL. In KL I'll most likely do a bit more shopping (: Later.
