Anniversary Langkawi 23-27 Oct 2008

We had this 1st anniversary Langkawi getaway planned very early on, even before my pregnancy. A little bit regret because nausea started kicking just a day before our flight.

We booked 2 different resorts this time.
1) Casa Del Mar (CDM)
2) Tanjung Rhu Resort (TRR)

We chose Casa Del Mar after reading about the good reviews in tripadvisor.com. Casa Del Mar means 'home by the sea' in Spanish. However, it turned out to be a big disappointment for us. There were renovation works going on near the poolside. Although they upgraded us to a Junior Suite, the renovation was just directly below us. When we asked for a change of rooms, they said the resort was full. So we were stucked there with all the knocking and banging sounds.
However, I would say that CDM did their best and they even whisked willing guests to a nearby island by boat for their sun-tanning session. I was not so enthusiast by it because I hate boats - they make me seasick.

We returned to Tanjung Rhu Resort after 2 nights stay at CDM. As expected, TRR was fabulous like last time. This time, we spent more time lazing around the pool eating ice-creams and fruit juices. Win Win and John even came to take anniversary photos for us. Luckily my belly is not showing yet! :D

All in all, I came back from Langkawi feeling refreshed and energized to face my oncoming pregnancy!
