Tonight, we shall feast!

swimming with kids

I woke up having pains and aches in places I didn’t even know existed. I had been running around the pool with the kids for several hours last night, swimming and remembering how to do stuff like:

Underwater somersaults

-_-

pool night

Haha! It was a lot of fun though, and we went just opposite the hotel to the tourist trap seafood restaurants for a bite to eat.

3 antara

I wanted to head over to this cool looking place with the menus written in English and Cyrillic script (!!!) called 3 t.i.g.a. Antara (no relation to the 3 Line criminal gang) which looks like something out of the trendy beach front eateries of Bali or Boracay. I figured if you wanted to be ripped off, at least we can get ripped off…in style! smirk

seafood restaurant

The menu was surprisingly cheap but the kids didn’t like anything on it so we walked to a Chinese seafood restaurant (which strangely serves no pork).

tourist trap

The place was comfortable though – we’re just beside the beach so we can feel the breeze being enhanced by the ceiling fans.

old coconut
Fresh coconut (RM 4)

wah tan hor

Now, the lady taking the order warned us that small is VERY SMALL. Sorry, that should have been very small. The wah tan hor (Medium – RM 12) that came out made us apprehensive about all the other Small orders – would there just be a few pieces?

guinness stout chicken
Guinness Stout Chicken Fillets (RM 9 – Small)

venison deer meat
Venison (Deer Meat) with Ginger & Onions (RM 15 – Small)

fried rice
Fried Rice (RM 5- Small)

ate well

It turns out that there’s more than expected and everyone ate well (for just RM 57 at a tourist trap – woo hoo). It’s very forgettable food though…

family dinner

Tonight is the night that we’re heading to town where the locals go for a *proper* seafood restaurant to eat the ocean’s diminishing supply of creatures – delicious treats like mantis prawn!

holiday villa

Tonight, we feast! *tears eagerly into a foot long cod*

    • It’s not that good but we went to a seafood place the next day! :)

      That’s somewhat anti-climatic though coz we thought it’ll be good but it was a fun trip nonetheless.

    • I don’t know…it puzzles me too! :)

      I think it’s coz it’s a tourist place and they want to charge people more for it.

      It’s really a very small portion!

    • Thanks Eli! :)

      We’re happy together and that’s all that matters. It’s a lot of fun and it takes a lot of the burden off her too.

      I can take the kids to the pool while she rests and vice versa. It’s all good.

    • Yup, the seafood dinner that we’re looking forward too wasn’t too great too! :)

      …but what’s important is the company and the bonding, we all had heaps of fun together, especially at the pool and going chocolate shopping. Haha!

    • Thanks Mel! :)

      It’s also coz there’s not much hor fun to begin with…

      …but they do have huge prawns though. It’s really small, the portion, just enough for two kids!

    • Haha! Yeah, and the next day we ordered too much and couldn’t finish it. :)

      We did pack some of it up and finished it at night though.

      It was at a famous seafood place but I honestly can’t recommend it, will write about it soon!

    • Yeah, it was a lot of fun! :)

      I heard a lot of people went off during the long Raya holidays. It’s school holidays too so it’s a perfect opportunity!

    • Thanks mate! :)

      It’s not that good actually but we were all really hungry after playing in the pool so we ate it all up. Haha!

    • Haha! I couldn’t keep up with the two kids! :)

      They were telling me to go here and go there while at the pool and it was a huge pool. I did backflips and jaga them coz the little one is really too small for anything but the smallest pool.

      The good thing about the resort is that there’s a lot of different pools of different depths – up to 2.45 meters!

    • Hello Rose! :)

      Yup, they’re and fun to play with too…

      …although I had aches from running here and there. Haha! I can’t keep up with two little kids who just loves the water.

      It’s a good thing I love the water too!

  1. Thank goodness you were there to play and swim with the kids, dear. Me could not have jump into the water until the next day. That also was a quick one. The kids were still so hyper upon reaching home. They only sleep at 11pm…fuuhh..

    • Oh well, at least they had fun during the vacation! :)

      I was aching the next day though. Haha! The two kids have lots of energy to run around, it’s a good thing we can switch and take turns taking care of the two little ones.

      It was a very fun vacation for me too dear! <3

    • Wow! Really? I thought the resorts would have food! :)

      I think you’re right though, it’s predominantly Malay. I hope the Pasar Ramadan is good at least. Haha!

      The interesting thing about Langkawi is that the Chinese restaurants are pork free and you can see some Malays eating there too!

    • Haha! There wasn’t much to begin with! :)

      The prawns were big but the hor fun was barely enough for two kids!

      They really mean small when they say small!

  2. It happens all of the time. I think I was left with terrible muscle aches when I first trekked Bukit Kiara as a seven-year-old. The trick is getting used to the running and swimming.

    Like what Melissa mentioned, I can’t see the hor fun either….

    • Nice! I remember being a kid and having all the energy in the world! :)

      Yeah, the hor fun was buried under the huge prawns but there really was just a little bit of hor fun!

      It was barely enough to feed two hungry kids, although I got them to eat some of the other stuff too.

      I like swimming too, so I can take care of the kids in the pool while my better half rests and switch the next day! :D
