How did you spend your public holiday last Monday? I spent the day in Langkawi. If you are thinking that I went for leisure…. WRONG…. I went to attend a meeting. Luckily, I do not celebrate Christmas but it still sucks to spend the holiday working.
Accomodation was provided at the Grand Continental hotel. The hotel is situated next to the Langkawi mall, I would say it is a very
strategic location because it will be convenient for those who would like to do a last minute shopping before catching the plane.
I have checked the pricing of the goods in most of the malls are relatively same. Duty free items such as Corell, Vision and Corningware are priced the same everywhere. I did buy a Corell dinner set for myself before I catched the plane. A dinner set for 6 (16 pieces) cost RM398. If I am not mistaken, it is about RM 500 in KL. By the way, to avoid tax, you must stay for at least 2 nights. But I wasn’t taxed although I stayed there for only a night. How???? Because I didnt buy a lot. The custom officer may ask for your arrival date if you buy a lot of the duty free stuff. So becareful.
In Langkawi there were a couple of MarryBrown branches. It has been so long since I have eaten the Marrybrown burgers, I made sure I didn’t miss my chance eating them before heading to KL. Boy!!! It tasted so good. YUMMY!!!!
