    Nice pics mate. I will go up next time I visit Langkawi, Ive only been there once and really enjoyed it.

    Great ring road and easy to get around on a motorbike.

    Cheers.

    PS. Great duty free drinks as well.

    Cheers Terry, there is a duty free shop in that Oriental village. I stocked up in there. 40 ringgit for a bottle of Absolut
    those duty free shops around the island are cheaper than the airport too.

    I have one more thread of langkawi, a bit of the beach. I only went for a day to the island, I will go back though soon and do it some more justice

    You don't love it slapper.

    The best part is when it gets close to a station, it speeds up considerably, starts swinging and you can hear a rather unhealthy sounding grinding noise.
    It probably sounds louder due to the silence of the passengers, it's that same kind of atmosphere then that you get in a jumbo jet, when a big belt of turbulence comes, and everyone's looking around for reassurance off others with rabbit in the headlights eyes

    Let us know when you fancy coming up with me slap. I'll pay your 30 ringgit :-)

    Is smack included in the entrance fee?


    Slap + Heights = Boisterous sphincter movement.
