Yoohoo all my dearest readers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I took a comfortable KKKL coach from Singapore to Port Dickson. SHIOK AH!

IMG_5054

Firstly, after clearing TUAS custom, the coach stopped by a rest stop for a Muslim breakfast.IMG_5055Nasi Lemak for RM$6.

Mee Rebus for RM$4.IMG_5059After a simple breakfast, off we continue our journey to PORT DICKSON (PD)!!!!!!!!!!!!! We left Singapore around 730am and reached Port Dickson around 12 noon. That totals to about a bus journey of 4.5 hours inclusive of 1 rest stop for breakfast.

Once we reached our hotel, we couldn’t check in as the room was not ready yet. Therefore, we decided to head to PD’s town to grab some food first. A one way 10 minute taxi from our hotel to PD’s town is priced at a horrendous amount of RM$30. OH MY GOD!
IMG_5070That aside, we settled for a simple lunch at Pak Hailam Kopitiam.

My awesome sweet sweet 3 layer milk tea! Reminds me of MongKok Dim Sum.

Spring rolls.

Chicken rice.

Although it was raining, we still braved through the rain with an umbrella to explore Port Dickson’s (PD) town.

There isn’t really any proper shopping mall in PD town. There’s a TF Value-Mart which is like a very small supermarket with some stalls outside of the supermarket that sells mostly Muslim batik.IMG_5092I happened to walk past a beautiful peacock painting on the floor! It says Happy Deepavali.

This Rainbow shop along PD town is the nicest to shop because it’s big and has all my favourite soft toys, cups, bags, watches, caps, hairbands, etc.

There you go, my stitch loots =D

IMG_5098

We also walked to PD Walk which is another tiny area with extremely limited shops.IMG_5097

As for The Store, it’s probably the biggest mall (about 3 storeys) but it’s an old building with very few shops that are actually still open. Most of the shops are vacant.

Luckily, there’s bowling there!

IMG_5100

Woohoo I’m getting better and better at bowling.

IMG_5115IMG_5114

Oh yes, PD town happens to hold an international watersports competition as well. However, I did not stay to watch the competition as the weather was really hot and I had no idea what time the competition would start as well. Thereafter, we took the very expensive 10 minute taxi back to our hotel to check in. OH MY GOD another RM$30 taxi money fly away within minutes.

IMG_5121IMG_5123

We reached our hotel around 515pm and collected our refreshing and icy cool welcome drink.

IMG_5133IMG_5137

Finally, we checked in to our room around 530pm. The partially open bathroom is really huge and comfortable! However, the bathtub is a little bit small.

IMG_5157IMG_5154IMG_5138

We stayed in room 601, Avillion Port Dickson Water Chalet.

IMG_5142IMG_5143

The room is also spacious and has a really high ceiling.

IMG_5144IMG_5146

You could feel the sun on your bed lor!

IMG_5147IMG_5160

It’s my very first time staying at a water chalet. Hehe.

IMG_5148IMG_5149

High tide can see moving waters, low tide can see dry sands.

IMG_5158IMG_5156

All in all, it’s a wooden theme room!

IMG_5164IMG_5165

IMG_5166IMG_5167

For interested readers, you could read up on the above 4 pages of Avillion Port Dickson’s story! Oh yes, PD is very near to Seremban as well.

IMG_5172IMG_5189

After settling down, I changed into my newly bought white PD T-shirt for RM$15. Lucky me managed to catch a beautiful sunset!~

IMG_5193

There are also a couple of artworks and paintings near the lift area.

IMG_5203IMG_5206

Time flies and it’s dinner time soon – we took a 10 to 15 minute walk from our hotel to the nearby night market for our dinner.

IMG_5204IMG_5213

We chose Restoran Anak Bapak Corner for a cheap and sumptuous dinner. We only spent a total of RM$27.50 for all the food!!!!!!!!! CHEAP TO THE MAX!!!!!!!!!

IMG_5209IMG_5210

Sambal kang kong and fried rice.

IMG_5211IMG_5208

Fried sotongs and beef noodles soup.

IMG_5215

I felt super shiok after the cheap and delicious dinner. Next up – SHOPPING AT PD’s NIGHT MARKET!!!!!!!!!!! Although it’s quite small, I managed to grab two items!

IMG_5221IMG_5222

Item 1: A long fire red beach dress for RM$30

Item 2: A black PD T-shirt for RM$25

IMG_5232IMG_5233IMG_5234

After some satisfying shopping, we walked back to our hotel to bathe before coming down again for drinks – White Wine and Singapore Sling cocktail! (with complimentary Indian crackers)

K.O. for the night~

IMG_5217IMG_5247

Good Morning Avillion PD Day 2!

IMG_5263IMG_5268

To kickstart the day, we had a decent buffet breakfast although the variety was quite limited.

IMG_5264IMG_5271

Since it’s Malaysia, majority of the guests were probably Malaysians or Muslims. Therefore, no pork food for me =(

IMG_5274IMG_5278

Cheese~ I saw a beautiful real peacock =)

IMG_5283IMG_5293

It’s time for some tanning after a heavy breakfast!

IMG_5296IMG_5281

Cochin pool is for adults only even though it’s only 1.2m deep.

IMG_5313IMG_5316

The waters ain’t that blue; it’s just that the floor tiles are deep blue in colour and hence making the waters look so damn blue.

IMG_5304IMG_5308

Happy me, happy jump shot!

IMG_5323

There’s also a Riau beach area with lots of mini holes in the sands made by the mini crabbies!

IMG_5329IMG_5335

I enjoyed the extremely vast and calm views of the sand and sea. It’s really relaxing and my first time looking at such a wide angle of a whole huge area of peaceful sea views! Thumbs up!

IMG_5325IMG_5333

My misconception was that the beach areas in Malaysia would probably be quite dirty but I was so wrong; The beach was actually very vast and clean.

IMG_5347IMG_5220

After checking out, we left our bags at the hotel’s lobby and went for our lunch at the hotel’s Crow’s Nest Restaurant.

IMG_5348IMG_5350

It’s a grand place! Reminds me of Royal Caribbean Cruise!

IMG_5358IMG_5359

Baked salmon pesto and club sandwich.

IMG_5364IMG_5368

This trip is overall relaxing and slow paced. Hope to be back in the future!
