Langkawi



The Langkawi Island lie in the Andaman sea , just 30 kilometers off the Kedah coast. There are 99 island in the Langkawi group most of which are uninhabited or sparsely populated. The largest and most developed island - known as Langkawi - is the focal point for most visitors. Traditionally the island have relied upon the farming and fishing industries for their livelihood, but in 1987 they were awarded Duty Free status, and the subsequent increase in visitors has promoted tourism to the point of being the islands largest industry.

NEW PHOTOS SHOW
THE LANGKAWI WAVES


Langkawi - 12 January 2005

New photos have come to light clearly showing how the December 26 Langkawi waves were changed by recent manmade coastal constructions.
The Langkawi waves, which arrived some hours after the tsunami waves hit Thailand, were cause by tsunami waves that passed well north of Malaysia.
The photos were taken by tourist Colin who was at the cablecar station on top of Mount Matchingchang at the time.




The first photo shows the waves coming in from a northerly direction and approaching Pantai Kok Bay.
The two manmade islands built outside the Telaga park Harbor are clearly visible.
In the background the islands that protected Pantai Tengah & Pantai Cenang are visible.



This zoom shot shows the waves changing shape as they reach shallower water and also shows a fifth smaller wave.
The short frequency (distance between waves shows these to be ordinary waves. Tsunami waves have a frequency of five kilometers or more.




Here the waves become less visible, but can be seen to be longer. The close part of the wave rushes past the manmade islands and is constricted and forced into the narrow channel of Pantai Kok Harbor.




This zoom shot shows the wave swirling inside the Yach Harbor where it damaged marina and yachts.

The second part of the waves can be seen becoming constricted between the seawall and the peninsula, increasing its force as it becomes narrower. This part of the wave caused damage in the fishing village of Kuala Teriang.




This was a very bad moment in the yacht basin and also the time the wave hit Kuala Teriang.

Langkawi was extremely fortunate to have recieved only these small waves, but they did ecxtensive damage to beachfront fisherman's village, with one eighty-year old person drowned and four people hospitalised.




The yachts in the harbor were ripped from their moorings and some were damaged as they hit the harbor walls.

At this point the main body of the waves crashed against the manmade seawall and lost their energy without mishap, except for the very southern tail of the waves that just passed the end of the seawall and reached the northern tip of Pantai Cenang beach.
The southern ends of the waves just reached the norther tip of the tourist beach at Pantai Cenang, where this fishing boat ended up deposited on the beach.

The traditional fishing boat is shown delivering guests safely from an island hopping trip soon after the wave. Boats at sea passed over the wave without damage.

Damage to the tourist beach was limited to some missing beach chairs, seawater in two beachfront swimming pools, and minor damage to the air conditioning units of a few beachfront bungalows at Pelangi Resort.

All damage was quickly repaired and the island is functioning normally.

Thanks to Mr Pishol of MATTA for providing the photos

I like how theyve kept it relatively unspoilt.

Penguins for RM25m project in Langkawi



BETWEEN 30 and 40 penguins may be sourced for a RM25mil project to feature three ecosystems at the Langkawi Underwater World by May next year.

American environmental consultant Frank S. Todd, better known as the ''penguin man,'' has been enlisted by Eden Enterprises (M) Bhd to help source the birds. Both the Langkawi Underwater World and Eden Enterprises are subsidiaries of the Eden Group of Companies.

“The major challenge for the project is acquiring the birds. However, a few hurdles have been overcome as I have located between 30 and 40 surplus penguins from different countries.

“They comprise tropical penguins of South American and South African origins – Humboldt, Black-footed and Magellanic – as well as the sub-Antarctic Rockhopper,” Todd said in Penang on Monday.

He said these figures may fluctuate according to their availability and changing market demand.

For every penguin available, there are usually 10 people who want it although one costs thousands of US dollars, said Todd, 60, who has spent 30 years in researching and writing about penguins.

The brainchild of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the project will involve the building of a new facility to complement the underwater world's existing complex.

The new one will display the Amazonian, sub-Antarctic and Antarctic ecosystems and house a three-dimensional (3D) theatre with a 200-seating capacity.

The project's consultant architect Dr Tan Boon Hock said the new facility was more complex to construct than building a hotel or office building.

“We are building a penguinarium, which comprises two penguin complexes, to house the birds.

“In one of the complexes, there will be an underwater tunnel for visitors to view swimming penguins and fishes.

“To make the penguin tunnel, believed to be Asia's first of its kind, we cannot use glass as it cannot be bent.

“Thus, we have to commission a China-based factory to manufacture and assemble acrylic panels for the tunnel and our other displays,” he said, adding that the project which started in April, was currently about 15% completed.

Underwater World Langkawi Sdn Bhd general manager Haji Tanzil Mohd Noor said apart from targeting tourists, the new double-storey building was also poised to become a world-class referral centre for marine life and penguins.

He said they would forge collaborations with academic institutions and other research organisations to encourage scientists to use the new facility with a 5,000 sq m built-up area.

Although penguins would be the new facility's main attraction, other animals may include anacondas, primates, sloths, capybaras, jays and macaws, he added.
