Visit Malaysia Year Haiku - Tanjung Rhu, Langkawi (State of Kedah)


longing for another luminuous day
this evening tanjung rhu
the casuarina sighing throughout

the finale of a joyous day
tanjung rhu
the tremulous sigh of the casuarina

the casuarina's tremulous sigh
tanjung rhu
every leaf sings the wistfulness in me

Tanjung Rhu is a grand beach where The Four Seasons Hotel is. Here at its cafe you pay about US7 for a cup of coffee. That's about 15 times the money you would pay for a cup of coffee in an ordinary coffee shop. The sights are superb and the winds breezy. On top of that, the cafe here has a class that others dont have. It is a favourite joint for the rich and famous. I walked here during the late evening, enjoying the uplifting breeze from the Andaman Sea and of course, the mesmerising sunset.At the apex of low tide, especially during the dry season from December to March, you can even have the pleasure of walking to the outlying islands.
