My Langkawi Island(Kedah,Malaysia) Diary 2: Dataran Lang

According to Wikipedia, Langkawi means reddish brown eagle in colloquial Malay. The Malay word eagle is Helang-shortened is "Lang" while Kawi means the colour reddish brown. Since we (my colleague and I ) are in the land of reddish-brown eagle, how can we not visit it?

On the way to the Eagle, you can't really see the eagle, but a series of.... how to describe this... unique eerie building.

Although the Eagle is KOT damn huge, you can't really see it from the other side of the square

When you approach it:
Dataran Lang, Langkawi
You will see a butt like asshole and wonder why this stupid famous eagle is a butt-head(pun)
Dataran Lang, Langkawi
When you walk around the square, then you will realize you are the real butthead(if you trust what I said just now) coz the head is facing the other side(sea/river) and you really see butt just now.

Seriously, the scene at the square at night is superior, just that my timid Lumix (TZ-10) is not awesome enough to capture it. Wait for your better photo if you head to Langkawi soon ^ ^
