My ideal place of a Happy Place is a place with blue sky, beach with fine white sand and a blue sea.
This is something easily tenable at Langkawi, Malaysia.
Better still, here are some boats ready for anyone who enjoy sea sports!
This week’s DP photo challenge is Happy Place.
Langkawi, Malaysia has always been my favorite destination for travels.
Happiness is lazing on the beach or wading to the near shore islands when the tide is out.
All my days in Langkawi, Malaysia were good days.
The good days there usually consisted of walking along the beach and watching the sunset when the days were coming to an end.
Sitting out on the rocks and meditate was also my favorite pastime, just like the man in my photograph.
We took the cable car to the top of the hill in Langkawi, Malaysia.
From there we have a panoramic view of the mountains and the blue ocean.
There is a cable stayed footbridge which takes you from one side of the mountain to another.
The cable stayed bridge has only one middle pier support off the mountains.
Standing on the footbridge, gazing out, all you have beneath you is the bridge deck and hundred feet of air before you reached the ground below.
You understand that is a big air gap under you!
The views are just beautiful in Langkawi, Malaysia.
As we strolled on the seaside boardwalk, we didn’t know what is around the corner.
The sunset was again ephemeral.
We ended up chasing the sunset – getting as far West as we possibly can; until the sun sunk below the horizon.
You can say this is ephemeral as the sun was exerting its last rays of light.
Equally, you can say this is timeless – as it has forever existed in my brain from that moment on.
Usually, I will try to submit several entries on the WPC’s weekly theme.
The first entry is usually about something which immediately comes to mind when reading the Daily Press ‘s WPC.
Then, I would go for a search in my archive to see what else can be submitted as well.
For this week’s challenge, the view from the top of a mountain on the Langkawi island, Malaysia immediately came to mind.
We were up on this mountain and the cable car brought us even higher up. From the top of the mountain, we saw a deep valley below and as a background, we have the blue sea separated by a layer of white clouds from the equally blue sky.
The steeply rising hill contrasts quite a bit with the valley below!
