Our first meal in Malaysia was a gloomy meal. Not because the food wasn’t good, but our luggages didn’t arrive with us with our plane. They made us spent hours waiting at the airport, and still no bags. The airplane was late twice, from Hong Kong to KL due to a storm, and then again it was delayed from KL to Langkawi. We had also a big argument with the staff in KL airport, due to the delay of the plane, they asked us to pay more for checking in luggages at the counter. (machines checking were closed). They were very inflexible with our explanations due to their mistakes. The dilemma, we paid our bags for not getting them.
Originally we had planned to eat at the night market that was opened that night of the week. When we left arrived at our hotel, it was already late, the taxi driver told us the market was closing. We spent some time walking around to check out some addresses for food, turning out that Langkawi has big construction sites everywhere, most of the places I wanted to visit has vanished on the map. Our next choice would be Orkid Ria, a seafood restaurant, then them too, were closing. A waiter cleaning recommended us to eat at a road side restaurant just next to the them. Turning out it was quite alright, even with our bad mood, especially we had committed a big error, all the electronic chargers were in the checkin luggages!
Noodles with vegetables
Fried rice noodles with cuttlefish
They didn’t speak any English, so we pointed at the fish or the ingredient that were in trays with ice, and they cooked in the style they wanted. Dishes were simple but were sufficient for that night.
