Day 2: Desaru

Three of us went for a swim in the morning. The mini water park was fun enough for little kids.

Big coconut splash

Having fun with slides

In the late afternoon, we went for a drive to other beaches nearby. These beaches are mostly frequented by locals.

Tanjong Balau

Batu Layar
This beach has pretty impressive rocks. Nice place for photography.

Next, we drove another half an hour to Sungai Rengit. This is where the most famous seafood restaurant located. It is a must try when you come here.

Jade Garden Seafood Restaurant


This was what we ordered:

Stir fried ostrich meat with ginger and spring onion

Stir fried kailan

And here comes the highlight of this trip: 1 kg of lobster! It's RM 90/kg. My mom said it was a rare occasion that we could (afford to) order 1 kg of lobster hehehe... quite true :)

Fried lobster with salted egg yolk

1 kg black pepper crab at RM 35/kg.

Everything was pretty good except the crab dish. The crab meat was fine, but the way they cook it wasn't good enough. This dinner cost about RM 180 for 4 persons.
