New road Cenang

Hello,

For those who are interested the new road in Cenang is open.

We arrived late yesterday, and tried it out today.

First impressions are is that it is great, but don't know what sort if impact it is going to have on traffic flow.

No sign of the "e bus" so don't know if that is up and running yet.

Weather today has been good. Rained overnight, but no sign during the day.

First impressions are is the island seems quiet, but our flight yesterday was full full full.

One disappointing thing is that Orkid Ria and Thirtdays are still not serving squid as seemingly the squid they are catching at the are too small.

cheers and good to be back

Janet

Hi there, yes still here. Just over a week since we arrived. Has rained a little bit each night, and days have been a bit over cast, but it is definitely beach weather. Yesterday we had tropical storms all day, but by 5.00pm were sitting out side at Thirstdays.

So far not a lot of humidity either, sleeping at night with just ceiling fan. No air conditioning... So summing-up... Bring your bathers, great beach weather, and depending on where you are staying try and drop into Thirstdays in Cenang to catch a sunset.

Cheers Janet

Perfect day today. Loads of sunshine, few clouds.

Just had dinner at Cba Beach bar at pelangi. Great food, good live music and good prices.

Island seem busier now than it was a few days ago, but that is to be expected. One thing that has just started are fire works... Hate them... Oh well.

Cheers

It is a public holiday for Merdeka Day and Eid so that is perhaps why it seems busier.

Yes you are correct steady.

Have just got home after a walk on the beach. Beautiful morning,some families having fun, and a few tourist (like me) trying to walk off some of the wine last night!

Looking like we are in for another beautiful day in paradise.
