Day 2 – Underwater World, Langkawi

Early rise and shine. We had malay breakfast just across the street at 9am. Wanted to try their local mee soto or laksa but both dishes will be ready at 11am only. I was warned that life in Langkawi is kinda slow. Now I started to get the hint. Looks like we have to settle with nasi lemak (spicy rice) and roti canai. I ordered the cheese roti canai. It was good. I think they used Philadelphia cheese and sprinkle some sugar in it. Yummilicious!

Schedule for this morning will be visiting the Underwater World. It was a 5 minutes ride from our hotel. I love our hotel location. Places that we intend to visit was just a stone throw away.

The gate was supposedly scheduled to open at 10am but when we arrived at 10.15am, many tourist are seen jamming up the entrance. Instantly it Snap! my mind. Malaysia Boleh! They are late again. Sigh…. Don’t they know this is a tourist attraction? Can’t they be a little punctual? Shortly after that the entrance was open. There are about 50 tourists in the queue but only one counter was open. Grrr…..

The left pic says RM28 for Malaysian while the right pic says alien will have to pay RM38 for the entrance. The problem is how do they know I am Malaysian or Singaporean? The catch is if you are a Singaporean better learn few words like – “Dewasa Dua, Kanak-kanak Dua”. There you go. Save you RM40!!! 🙂 But if you are ang moh, kwai low or westerner, just too bad unless you get the chinese or local to help out with the tickets *wink*. But if you are chinese malaysian and has been speaking slanggggggggggggg …. haha… I’m just exxagerating things here.

Well, I’ve been to Brisbane underwater world and I think the Langkawi’s was a baby and really dissapointed as how unadvance they are. No shark feeding show at all! How boring! Flamingos and mandarin duck greeted us at the entrance to the aquarium. How cute and….. out of theme!!!

You like penguin?

…brrrr…. it’s cold in there….

All they do is tickling their armpit. Bah!

I won’t be posting up any fish pic as my camera really sucks. It doesn’t have a image stabilizer and everything goes blur and shadowy. Lots of night mode function to applied and i am without a tripod. What a sad sight. I almost cry when I couldn’t get the correct lighting.

Out of 20 probably 5 can be use provided the fish doesn’t move. So how ler! tsk, tsk…

You want more pic? Actually those corals has nothing to shout about.

The 2nd pic is actually a fish and not seaweed. Forgot the name liao.

Tunnel view

Gigantic stingrays and sharks. I started to get suspicious. Is the glass made from magnifying glass? Some fishes are really hugeeeee!

Camwhore a bit here. Tehehee…

Self portrait! Finally got the hang of it.

*ahem!* all England supporter.

3D Theater

The 3D spects they gave are low quality. It doesn’t give us the 3D effect instead it makes our eyes blur and gave us headache.
Overall, I’ll give this a 6 out of 10. Probably I’ll throw in one more points being the only tourist attraction place found on this island that can be considered as … interesting? and air-conditioned?. But I won’t be back IN here for another 5 years. Maybe NEVER if they ignore my request to bring in the whale. *rolling eye*
