A day trip to Port Dickson & dessert at Kakigori

Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia

Hello Internet!!! Hope you all Malaysians have an enjoyable long weekend and a great Independence Day! MERDEKAAAA!!!

Myself, I went to an impromptu, day visit to Port Dickson just to unwind. I have been to Port Dickson as a child and recently to a resort for my company’s annual dinner but in the latter, we spent most of our time in the resort compound.

We started off early and headed to a random beach just for a bit of sightseeing. This beach we went is polluted, as notorious as other PD beaches.





 




Spot the crabs!!




Dirty water didn't stop me from wading my in the waters for an hour or so while exploring the length of the beach, we decided to have our lunch at Port Dickson Ostrich Farm.


We head straight to the cafeteria after buying the tickets as we were starving by then.



Chose the set of Ostrich’s steak, satay (Meat on stick) and omelet. It was my crazy idea to have everything ostrich ヾ(≧▽≦*)/ After all it's been yearsss since we tasted one! Of all, I like the latter best but totally hated the steak platter. The marinade tasted weird and the sides blend and weird. Satay was surprisingly good, sans fat unlike chicken satay.


Fun fact: apparently ostrich’s meat is a healthier option and even its egg contained lower amount of fat compare to chicken egg.




Gotta indulged in coconut juice after baking in the terrible heat. Weather's been ridiculous lately, ping pong-ing from super hot to rainy cold.. (✖╭╮✖)


Once our stomach were somewhat satisfied, we head to check around the farm to explore. From the canteen, we were first greeted with these feathery friends, some tiny gerbils,  seemingly well-fed kois and even snakes in glass displays.


Not too long later we spent some time in the mini bunny hutches and pet their fluffy coat. Even though they're quite dirty lolol


Crazy reaction hahahha


Next minute I befriended another ostrich.


 There is also a dogs' section. I have no idea what got me to even enter the place but when the dogs drew nearer, I freaked out like an idiot. While they were quite friendly, they still look menacing with their huge size. Never again, unless they’re small, docile, not so hyperactive sort.
 

Ben, being a dog lover had the time of his life playing with the dogs. Too bad the Cats’ corner was closed for renovation. Would have loved to spend time with the cats #CatsPerson

Big dude appeared super docile until he stood up and acted playful which meant I freaked out again. He's so huge on his paws, its scary!!!


We left afterwards to Tanjung Tuan, wanting to check out the lighthouse. Unfortunately because it was the public holiday, the place was close to visitors. What a bummer.




Instead, we decided to go for an impromptu hike over super sloppy heels and hundreds of staircases in the midst of the burning afternoon. Pretty leg workout, I joked.




Super steep woihh!


 
After what seems like eternity to me, but was in fact only 20 minutes of climbing and descending down the stairs (some taller than the length of my short limbs), we made it to the prettiest, cleanest beach in west coast of Malaysia.

I SWEAR this place has the clearest, bluest water in Negeri Sembilan or maybe west coast of Malaysia!!! Super breath-taking (on top of the whole hike lol)


 





That made all the effort worth it until it was time to head back WTHLOL. Anyways, we did stayed for a while to enjoy the scenery and seaside breeze.

The sun was too blaring to go for a dip unfortunately. Only a handful of sun-loving foreigners played in the water. Malaysians be like, this is the best reason to stay at home. Or who EVER hike in the middle of the day???


The darker spots are actually seaweed. There are lots of them there.

 

 

Once we scrambled up and down back to where we started, we stopped to get our cold ice cream as reward for going through the entire ordeal. Decided to try the new Magnum White Almond flavor!

So very super yummy!!!!!


Can't wait to try the other flavors! Who tried all yet?

We conclude our day by having dinner at Double Queue Thai Restaurant. We had sweet & sour chicken,  seafood tom yam and mango salad. 



Love the salad the most!


Unfortunately the overall food tasted 2 outta 10, I would say especially for the odd, barf-tasting tom yam… And I thought I’m the only one who can screw up when it comes to cooking. That’s so reassuring hahahahaha.

It wasn’t until we returned home that we noticed all of us got 3 shades darker WTF.

 ┻━┻ ︵ヽ(`Д´)ノ︵ ┻━┻

Plus it’s like our skin’s prickling and all, it was terrible. I immediately bought my own devised post-sun damage control kit which soothe my skin but I’m regret not applying any sunscreen dieshitme ( TДT)  I’m blaming global warming too, Malaysia’s getting really hot these days!


Now I’m praying hard that’ll I get lighter before my sis’ big day…

On another day I met up with another friend and we dropped by the all time famous Murni mamak for dinner before having dessert at Kakigori, Taman Paramount, PJ.


My choice of sweet potatoes flavor kakigori. It's super unique they topped it with Japanese pudding yum! Just a warning to taste the kakigori before you pour all the honey like I did.... It became overly, sickeningly sweet afterwards....


Watermelon kakigori. Super cute lehhhh! Think I love this best because the flavor is milder and so you won't grow sick of it before finishing the entire thing. 


This is another friend's matcha kakigori. There were hilarious story behind this kakigori. Because the seats at Kakigori was small for the three of our dessert, we had to switch place for comfort lol and when I was shifting the kakigori, the wobbly mochi accidentally fell onto the table lolol. Le friend, "NOOOOOOOO!!!" and I was like, "Five seconds rule!!" and he picked it up and put it back onto where it was WTF! Dudes, aih.

And after he poured the milk onto the top of the kakigori, it made the mochi sink further to his dismay because he wanted to eat the mochi so much, hahahahhaa!!! Poor mochi lolol


The matcha kakigori damn bitter they literally pour tons of matcha on them. Not to order unless you like bitter stuff.  We were all making faces at every slurp.
