So many places to explore in Langkawi! This is what I discovered today as Mr, Azizi brought us out of ‘The Cot tage” today.

We're all looking fresh and ready for the day's adventures.

artists can be good singers too.  That's what Charly showed us when he surprised us with his favorite "Maloya" song inside Azizi's place..

We had lunch in Zulun Ikan Bakar Resto where I had a taste of the fish caught in the river behind the eating place.  Quite a lot of good food to choose from.

Highlight of the day was the dinner we had at the House of Lamb, owned by Azizi. We were served special Baryani rice cooked with 24 spices, usually served during weddings

Lamb out is a piece of art by itself; the final touches done by Juan, brother of Azizi. Lamb out is a piece of art by itself; the final touches done by Juan, brother of Azizi.

It was a fun time dinner and we learned a lot of things in our one-day tour of Langkawi and delicious dinner graciously provided by Azizi.  We are so grateful for the many delightful surprises for the day. We look forward to more discoveries in our explorations in the coming days before the 2016 Langkawi Art Biennale event.
