We had a quick swim after the breakfast. Baby was very excited :)

Super excited!

That's all for now. Hopefully will travel again soon!

Day 4: Port Dickson

According to my research from the internet, the only place to do snorkelling in Port Dickson was at the Blue Lagoon. I wasn't very sure myself either because there wasn't much info about it, so the only way to find out was to drive there.

Blue Lagoon
We couldn't find any speedboat to bring us to snorkel, the beach was completely deserted on that day. So while we waited at the beach, hubby swam out to the sea to check it out. Half an hour later he returned and said that there wasn't a single fish in sight. Hahaha.. lucky I didn't go. :P

Blue Lagoon

Cape Rachado National Park
Nearby the Blue Lagoon is the Cape Rachado National Park. We paid RM 1 entrance fee and walked into the forest. After about 20 min walking uphill, we saw the lighthouse.

The lighthouse

The lighthouse was off limits, guarded by the military officers but we could walk around the perimeter and had a view from up here.

Thistle Hotel
On our way back to the hotel we made a stop at Thistle Hotel. It is one of the nicest hotels at Port Dickson. I asked hubby to drive in to check it out. Who knows we visit Port Dickson again next time. :)

Day 3: Malacca - Port Dickson

I was glad that we finally checked out from that lousy hotel. Crossed my fingers that the next one would be a lot better. :)

We had our lunch at Da Gu wanton noodles before driving up to Port Dickson. I usually don't like a wanton noodles but this one was good. Thumbs up!

Da Gu wanton noodles, the noodles was notably thicker than the usual ones.

Avillion Admiral Cove Hotel, Port Dickson
Our room was superb! Just look at the photos. :) And it was only SGD 75 per night!

Avillion Admiral Cove

Fantastic ocean view from our room.

Twin beds, a double bed would be nicer though.

She was happy with her bed.

A daybed

What I love most about the room is the separator. We could completely close the glass panel for more privacy. This separator really saved us one more room. :P

The glass panel

Small dining area and study desk

A small pantry, great for family traveling with kids.

Our dinner was at a Chinese seafood restaurant (forgive me.. it is the first time I forget a restaurant name) but the address is Batu 10 (Mile 10) Jalan Pantai. Just look for a corner shophouse next to Weng Yin restaurant.

Baby Kailan

Cereal prawns

Baked crabs (the local called it kam heong style)

Everything was great, this meal cost about SGD 35.
