Langkawi Signs And Graffiti

There are some fun signs and a little graffiti in Langkawi, some hidden messages worth preserving here.

Graffiti is frowned upon in Malaysia. If you want your tag to last, best to project some sort of happy, positive message.

Well, maybe get political. Here's a famous quote from - and an image of - Mahathir bin Mohamad, the fourth and longest-serving of Malaysia's six prime ministers. Mahathir was prime minister for a remarkable 22 years (1981-2003) and is considered the father of modern Malaysia.  The quote appears be from 1999, but the political situation has grown more complicated since then and Mahathir, 92, is now an opposition leader.

Optimistic burger sign - Gunung means "mountain."

More graffiti, an innocent leaf and more positivity.

What's to say? A little bit of pure goodness on an auto gas flap.

Oohing And Eating At The Langkawi Night Market

Malaysia is filled with hawker stall food night markets, just let your growling stomach lead you to the nearest one. And Google Maps.

The sprint is on for that special satay!

What's everywhere? Fried chicken and anything on a stick.

Malaysians love fried chicken so much, they'll fry the feet.

Full meals in a clamshell are popular, sauce in a bag. Bag, good idea, let's put the whole meal in a bag!

So what stall is it going to be?
