Another Rainy Dinner by the Sea

In the past I have posted an blog article of us having an early dinner along the road by the sea at dusk in Kuala Perlis before. Again, it was raining but this time there was a spectacular sunset on display for us to view.

Langkawi Island held its postion at the horizon

Ain faces north

Ain ordered the laksa, which was delicious but apparently not as delicious and rich as Mak Nyang's laksa, a story for another time.

Irfan faces south

Irfan and I ordered the lok chin, which is various seafood and sausages on a stick, roasted over an open fire and dipped in various sauces.

Sunset Weaving

The sun revealed itself while the clouds arranged themselves in an aesthetically pleasing way for us to see.

Who are these people?

Other patrons of the roadside eatery walked into view on the wall of rocks that separated us from the beach, so I took a photo of them against the epic backdrop. Who these people are we will never know.

Cloud City but with an ocean too, and no cities.

Lok Chin, or however you spell it

Our lok chin came, just as the light drizzle escalated into a heavier rainfall. The waitstaff said we could move under the tent because the family who sat there (see two images above) have vacated their table, which is dryer.

Under cover

So we ate in peace under cover until the rain stopped falling.

Bye, sun!

Heading home

After dinner, we headed home as I simmered in my eternal trepidation that all this comfort and joy could immediately come crashing down upon us and leave us homeless and penniless* far from where we used to be. Sorry, bad habit after over a dozen years trying to eke out a meagre living in Kuala Lumpur. SORRY.

Sorry everyone. Carry on.

*It probably will. Sigh.
