Weekend At The Seaside


We went to Port Dickson (PD) last weekend. It is a seaside town just 70+km away from Kuala Lumpur, which made it a perfect getaway for day-trippers in search of a bit of sun and sea.


Going to PD was actually a last minute decision for us. We wanted to go back to my hometown but after checking with my sisters and being told that they are not going back this weekend, I decided to check whether the Company's apartment in Teluk Kemang was available. It was and more good news because my sisters agreed to head off to PD with us too.

PD was sure packed during the weekend, what with the school holiday going on. We were stuck in a bit of jam on our way to PD. Lucky for us, when we got to PD, it wasn't raining. 

We stayed overnight but instead of having a BBQ night, we had a steamboat dinner in the apartment instead. No photos because I was too busy with the food!

Raimie wasn't too keen going into the sea the evening before but the next day, he was all raring to jump in with his cousin, Kimi.
 Little Kimi getting nervous of the waves.

We went to the beach early in the morning and after horsing around there, we jumped in the apartment's swimming pool. The two kids sure had a lot of fun! 

I'm glad that Raimie enjoyed the weekend although I must say, I was having a bit of withdrawal symptom being away from my notebook and cable TV. I purposely left behind my notebook and my latest "love", my Coffee Prince DVDs behind to just  enjoy the company of  my family.

  1. That looks like such a fun and relaxing little trip. There's just nothing quite like enjoying the water and yummy food outdoors.

  9. @Mei Teng,
    Seems like the municipality did some sprucing of the beaches. Teluk Kemang beach look much better when we visited last weekend compared to what we saw a year earlier.

    There are garbages, yes... We Malaysians need to be civic minded to not litter and spoil our nature.
