Superstar Virgo

While I was in KL, Alishia went on board a cruise that was named "Superstar Virgo"; operated by Asia's top cruise liner, Star Cruise Malaysia. It was an 8 day working holiday where she conducted fitness classes on board the ship. In case you didn't know, Alishia is also a part-time fitness instructor for RPM, Body Step and Body Combat classes. If you've visited a gym, you should know how "physically challenging" and tiring those classes are.

Superstar Virgo travels from Klang to Singapore, Penang and Phuket. Here are some of her snapshots during her trip.

Back from my long needed break

Bird's eye view of Penang island from the plane as we approach Langkawi

We've just returned today from a short trip to Langkawi this afternoon. I must say that it was a simple yet fulfilling trip. We hired a car and traveled around the island; clocked over 200 kilometers in 3 days. Langkawi island is still underdeveloped (to my opinion), but it sure has one of the most beautiful beaches in Malaysia.

I did not manage to take many photos during our trip. Our itinerary was quite packed and furthermore, it was strictly a 'no working' holiday. I was armed with a Nikon D50 and one 35mm, 2.0 f/stop Nikkor lens throughout the trip.

A bridge that stretches about 200 meters out to the sea, bridging us to a fish farm.

A sign as we enter the bridge above. It doesn't look that safe from here.

I can't wait for my next vacation already...
