La Isla Bonita: Lang Tengah {Part III}

Friday, May 11, 2012

A promise is a promise: I said I would post more pictures of Lang Tengah island didn't I?


Rainforest rove: Lang Tengah is a very small island. So small that we were able to explore other parts of the island in less than 1 hour. If I'm not mistaken, we were told that it is only 5 km in parameter.


Paradise on Earth: Complete serenity. MashaAllah.


Stunning, magnetic seawater: Doesn't this picture make you want to jump in right now?


Under the sea, under the sea: When I was a little girl I wanted to be a mermaid and my late Dad used to take me swimming all the time because I loved it so much. By the way, the necklace I was wearing is made of marjan (Arabic for red coral). It was bought in Taif, Saudi Arabia 2 years ago. 


A holiday to remember: I will never forget this holiday. We had so much fun as a family, alhamdulillah, and that's rare because everyone's always so busy with work. It was also the first time I went snorkelling in my life. I've come to the conclusion that you haven't truly lived until you've been snorkelling. Well... says the mermaid wanna-be ;)


He released the two seas, meeting [side by side]; 
Between them is a barrier [so] neither of them transgresses. 
So which of the favors of your Lord would you deny? 
From both of them emerge pearl and coral.
So which of the favors of your Lord would you deny?
{Surah Ar-Rahman, 19-23}


Oh yes! I even made a video of this trip. Initially I made it just for family and close friends but then I thought, "Pictures really don't do justice to this beautiful island!". I'd like to say a big thank you the staff of Sari Pacifica Lang Tengah for such an enjoyable stay and of course, thank you to my family for an unforgettable time.

@SARAH, with all honesty I don't think my life was this "colourful" until I started this blog. Perhaps that vision board stuff is partly true haha! My blog is kinda like my vision board.

Plus, ever since I started wearing hijab & becoming more of practicing Muslim, God has changed my life in ways I never expected. Alhamdulillah ala kulli hal. May Allah swt continue to beautify and place Nur in our lives =)) Ameen.

What else can we do there other than snorkeling ya?

Shahirah Elaiza said...

@Izyan, hmm I think jungle trekking and kayaking were some of the options. We snorkelled most of the time though. They can even take you on a personal snorkelling tour by taking you to different spots :)
