Day 3 on this trip to Langkawi was the big Langkawi International Laksa Carnival, a gathering and festival to celebrate laksa, a dish of noodles and curry. There are many different types of Malaysian laksa, and just about every state in Malaysia has their own version. So the Laksa Carnival is an annual event in Langkawi that brings together the flavors of laksa in a single place. There were many states in Malaysia represented and there were also some other countries like Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, and Chinese represented.
In the morning we drove over to the Laksa Carnival and began by eating a variety of different laksas from around Malaysia. The day before, I had already eaten hand pulled noodles from China and a couple versions of laksa from the Malaysian state of Kelantan, so other than that I got a bowl of laksa Pahang, laksa Penang, laksa Perak, laksa Sarawak, and laksa Johor. They all had stalls represented at the Laksa Carnival, but I got a bowl of each and sat down to taste them all. All the different types of curry and noodles were quite different, some were more clear broth, others were more rich and creamy looking. After tasting all the different types of laksa from Malaysia, I would have to say that my favorite was from Sarawak, which is the Malaysian state on the island of Borneo. The flavor of the curry was delicious and I also loved the combination of ingredients. The Johor and Penang laksa tied for second place for me.
The Laksa Carnival was a very fun even to attend, and I enjoyed the variety and the authenticity of the laksa served. Thank you to LADA and Naturally Langkawi for inviting me to the event.
After slurping down multiple bowls of laksa we then headed to Cenang Beach to go on a jet ski tour with Mega Water Sports. The tour lasted for 4 hours, and we headed to a number of different beaches and got a tour of different islands and the landscape of Langkawi. The jet ski tour guide was very safe and responsible, and I thought it was an amazing and well done tour. It was my favorite time to ride a jet ski, and it was one of the most fun things I’ve done in a long time. I couldn’t believe how fast I could skim through the water.
After coming back from the jet ski tour in Langkawi, we then took a drive over to Privilege Restaurant, a modern fusion Malaysian restaurant. We ate their Degustation Menu which included a number of different courses. My favorite course were the king prawns masak lemak, fresh prawns marinated in coconut milk and turmeric.
