Magpies are birds of the Corvidae (crow) family, including the black and white Eurasian magpie, which is one of the few animal species known to be able to recognize itself in a mirror test. In addition to other members of the genus Pica, corvids considered as magpies are in the genera Cissa, Cyanopica and Urocissa. I am sharing this globe with these birds!

Okay! Give me one good reason to visit Pulau Langkawi again after seeing Kok Lipe in Thailand!
Beach at Kok Lipe. The white sand is as soft as baby powder!All I did was sleep and eat!
View from one of the affordable "five star" resorts on the west side of Lipe Island!
I was in Langkawi I got really depressed, this premier Malaysian number one tourist spot is getting uglier and uglier as I come and visit. There are too many motor vehicles, development of the so called "chalets" and "convenience stores" are out of control, raw sewerage being pumped out into the bay. A roll of toilet paper costs RM3, and my foreign friend, from Indonesia said "terlalu mahal". And so after completing my job we were told of how to get to Kok Lipe in Thailand. So a bunch of us took a boat to Kok Lipe, which is in the southern west most of Thailand and after that Langkawi has to do better to attract me! Kok Lipe is simple, no pretension as it is a nature paradise, good food and friendly people! Oh Yes! A roll of toilet paper costs only 50sen our equivalent! Write this on Kok Lipe and the water there is just so blue and azure green and I will write more! I am going for a swim now!
