Holiday in LGK - Day 3

Feeling all excited when we saw the skies were blue & clear and weather was bright & sunny!

Langkawi Cable Car, here we come! We could not go the day before due to rain. This is the day then!

How wrong were we when we confidently believe that due to off peak season, there would no queue. The ticketing operator told us that we need to be prepared to queue for atleast an hour! Isabelle fell asleep before we got down the car earlier. Thank God that we have a ring sling with us. We love the stroller but an outing to such crowded tourist spot, the sling comes in hundred times more handy and less bulky. Surprisingly, Isabelle slept through the long wait at the entrance, despite the hot hot weather.

We met very warm and friendly fellow holidaymakers. Shared cable car with a young couple & a family of 4 from Down Under and also another family with a young child from India. We took turns to take photos for each other.

The view from the cable car and from both Middle and Top Station was awesome and magnificent. The clear weather contributed as well. My previous company did this project. I do feel a little bit proud of it as this project looks 'difficult' and it would have take really skillful people to complete such remarkable job.

We proceeded to Red Tomato Garden Cafe for late lunch. I have read so many reviews from travel related websites and blogs about this place. I know I must check it out myself. I was ready to taste their ever so popular Eggs Benedict only to know that this item is for breakfast and they only serve this till 12pm! ARGH! I settled for Tomato Soup & wholemeal toast beef bacon. DH went for Mexicanna Pasta and Heineken (happy hour half price).

Red Tomato Garden Cafe ~ Not very luxurious but cozy, and food is out of this world!

No regrets eventhough Eggs Benedict was unavailable. The Tomato Soup was the best I have ever tasted in my entire life. Rich, creamy and not overly smooth with the right amount of texture and small chunks of tender onions. The toast was very yummy too.

DH's pasta was ooh lala!!! The jalapeno chili spiced up the dish.

But I will still go back for Eggs Benedict, before the clock strucks 12pm :)

Went back to the hotel for a swim and rest. Ventured out to Kuah town for dinner, about 20 minutes drive from Pantai Cenang where the Meritus is located.

Relied on GPS to hunt for dinner as we did not do much research on food in Kuah. Found Teo Seafood Restaurant. The place was not crowded and we had some little doubts of the food. But it turn out not bad. We had their popular Fried You Tiau, Fried Vegie (forgot the name of the vegie), Frog Fried Ginger Onion & Kam Hiong Chok Than.

After filling up our tummies, we went to the Eagle Square near the ferry jetty since it was nearby. Happily we walk towards the majestic eagle statue only to realise that I left my camera in the car when I reached inside my bag searching hi & lo for it. Our car was parked quite a distance from the statue and fortunately we have our mobile camera as alternative.

There goes the 3rd day of our holiday.
