Blogtober Challenge – Day 2 – October National Holiday in Malaysia

Langkawi, Malaysia

Last year for China’s National Day I decided to leave the country and not deal with Chinese tourists in China. I packed my bags to Langkawi, Malaysia, an archipelago of 99+ islands. I got to be lazy on a beach, fish, island surf, ride a scooter, slide down some wells, drink coconut water, eat Malaysian, Indian, and Arabic food, jungle trek, and snorkel for nine long days. Enjoy the pictures! No first impressions on this one because I wasn’t trying to be impressed. Cause any beach and any sun would have been fine.

Fished. After 4 long hours I caught one. Even if it was small, I still caught one.

 Snorkled: First time ever! Even though I am a weak swimmer, I was still able to explore the underwater coral reef with this life jacket. img_20161007_195456

Jungle Trekked: Yes, I got to be Tarzan for a couple of minutes. I sucked at it. But hey, I completely believe Tarzan’s capability to learn to swing from vine to vine, these things are STRONG


Slided: Down Seven Wells. It was dope.

Reflected: on why the hell I am in China with bad air pollution and not living on this island.

Ate: Chicken Satay is to Yang Rou Chuar (if you study Chinese or lived in a china, you’ll understand what I mean)!

Scootered: For hours, and even in the rain. At least Joel was driving


So what did I do this year for National Day?!

Rian (my Brazilian boyfriend..more about him later) and I went to this house party behind some mountains. There was a rented coach bus that we took there and back. Didn’t sleep until 7am…I was hanging so hard today. I think I had a better time at the beach. Totally wish I was in Langkawi right about now!

For those of you in Asia, enjoy your holiday! I know I am!
