We Are Presently In Kangar, Perlis
This will be a super brief update.
We began our journey roughly about 9.00 am from Skudai, Johor and reached Kangar, Perlis at about 6.00 pm. That’s about 9 hours journey including one stoppage for refueling and one for lunch and toilet stuffs.
We landed at Hotel Putra Palace, Kangar, Perlis and just checked in. This 4 star rated is the best hotel in Perlis. I’ll make a review on it later. In a short while, we’ll be having dinner somewhere nearby this hotel.
Located within the main commercial hub of Kangar, it is easily accessible from the North-South Expressway via the Alor Setar-Jitra or the Changlun interchange. Those coming from Alor Setar airport can enjoy a short drive by taxi to Kangar. Ferry services are also available from Langkawi to Kuala Perlis, just a scenic 15-minute drive to Kangar town. Rating:

As soon as I checked in the hotel, I asked about the internet facilities. The recep told me that they have wifi facilities charged at RM10 per day only available at the hotel lobby. She gave me the hotel wifi password and asked me to test it first, pay later. In our room, we switched on the laptop and found 6 wireless lines available around us. We tried connecting to one which was not secured and ….. you know the rest… we’re connected… That’s why now I’m still online. We don’t need to use the hotel wifi. There are somebody outside there who’re generous enough to allow us to share a piece of their wireless internet. (We save RM10 and I don’t have to go down to the lobby to surf 😉 )
I can also witness Manchester United extend their lead by trashing Liverpool 3-0 in front of my eyes.
Will we enjoy this free wifi in Awana Porto Malai Langkawi? I don’t know yet. I hope we can… 🙂
Money spent so far

Tomorrow, more money will be spent, for ferry fares, renting a car, food etc. Let’s just see how it goes tomorrow 🙂
