Post Raya Feels

So, 1st of Syawal, Aidil Fitri came recently and life now resumes after a very short break with family.

My sister, brother and sis-in-law and their boys came over to spend some time in Langkawi.

Cant believe how big the boys are now. With such distinct characters too. Amazing.

We had meals at many places too - home, Pizza Hut Cenang, Najjah Restaurant Padang Matsirat and McD (yes, McD!).

I wonder how much weight we put on after a month of fasting.

We mostly lounged around at home (punctuated with more food of course, it is the Salleh Family way) but it was good. Even managed to bring some Grilled Chicken Pasta Bake for the team at work which I heard was very quickly demolished.

Even the cats were happy being constantly showered with attention.

Moments of simple bliss can often be missed mainly because we often forget to look for and enjoy it. But reminisce about your past, and I bet you the world, something will make you curl your lips and smile.

Selamat Hari Raya everyone.

Post Raya Dinner @ The Pizza Maker, Pantai Tengah Langkawi

We have been hankering for some Pizza in Langkawi but the usual selection of Pizza Hut, and a few other local more obvious shops such as Artisan's Pizza, Khairie's Pizza, among others were not gonna quite cut it.

So, I fired up the Tripadvisor App and searched for Pizza. The Pizza Maker turned out to have the best ratings, and deservedly so we would soon find out (though there are a couple of reviewers who rated this place poorly, unfairly confusing another place with it).

We arrived for dinner at about 8.30pm, in a windy downpour and found the place already had many tables occupied, despite the wet weather.

We ordered to share between the three of us, a Bowl of Tuna Mixed-Salad, a Calzone (and chose fillings of Beef Bacon, Grana and Rocket leaves) and the Pizza Diavolo with add-on of Beef Bacon.

We were NOT disappointed- the portions were very comfortable, the aromas mouthwatering, the pizza crust exhibiting just the right balance of crunch and chewiness.

The flavour? You know the Chef takes pride in his craft. DELICIOUS! Fresh ingredients layered on top of more fresh ingredients.

Do yourself a favour by coming to the Pizza Maker in Pantai Tengah located at Tropical Resort (use Google Maps or Waze).

Good food and good service, the place was busy during our visit but the food arrived relatively fast anyways.

Iftar @ Bella Vista Langkawi

Last day of Ramadhan Buffet and we celebrate it by having it at Nautilus Restaurant, Bella Vista Langkawi (actually sebab tempat lain semua have stopped offering Buffets).
