Company trip to Lexis Hibiscus, Port Dickson

This post is about my last trip to Port Dickson. Happy Times Yayy~!

So in May, I was at Port Dickson because my company organized the annual dinner cum team building session in one of the most beautiful resort I've ever been. Not like there are many resorts I've been to LOL. But yes, it is such an amazing place I'm super impressed and surprised there is such a resort with cottages built on top of the water, arranged in the shape of Malaysia's national flower, the hibiscus and facing the Straits of Malacca. Yeah, the flower pattern part, super duper impressed. Even my friends agree with me LOL

This is the first pic I took of the resort. Check out the beautiful chalets!

OOTD shot in from of the lounge!

We were mostly occupied with activities that took up the entire day and I was in charged with  decorations for the entrance of the annual dinner so I didn't get to explore much on that day. Oh, and I didn't even noticed I was at Port Dickson until lunch! I was looking out the hotel's cafe and wondering why is there a beach WTF. Turns out I'm facing the sea yo! #blockheadme

This was what  my colleagues and I were working on~

And then the annual dinner is at night so only after that I decided to hung out with my newfound friend who helped me in the decorations. We were at the lounge chatting, drinking Apple Mojito and deciding where we should go for vacay. Initial plan was to Australia but finally decided we'll be going to Taiwan together sometime next month! YAYYYYYY!

Bff's equally fun sis will be joining me, I'm so happy we can do this together! So I'm quite occupied trying to get our itinerary done and book our AirBnB asap. My goodness, few weeks to go. #Kancheong #wakuwaku

Our Mojitos~ We both love the alcohol and virgin versions!

After that, we head back to our respective rooms. My room wasn't in the chalet above the water, sadly... But I got an amazing view of the hibiscus and actually appreciated it a lot. I jumped into the small dipping pool twice, before the event and at 1AM! I call it a dipping pool because it's barely one lap.... According to my newfound friend and bedmate (we shared a king size bed LOL),  Lexis has another resort with huge pools in every room! So awesome! Oh, and the place we were at is caled Lexis Hibiscus, true to its name.

Here are how the place looks like from my room. Photos taken by my newfound friend LOL. She has awesome photography skills her Instagram is beautiful!

The dipping pool LOL

Then the day version. Equally breathtaking! That's the end of the stalk there (far right).

Next morning I was up and couldn't wait to go cycling. Most of my friends have chosen to take the early trip back so I was alone. But it was the best decision ever! I cycled past the pretty chalets and rode my way to the end of the hibiscus stalk.

(I want to show u guys the photos of me cycling but I don't know where I kept it OMG. Please let them be in my HD!)

Then stopped to check the view, it was an amazing feeling!

Kept cycling past a family and one of the kid was like, "Selalu cuti ke? (Do you have hols often?)" and I was "Taklah, hari ni (Nope, just today <--Wanted to say, only this time)".

He went, "Eh, boleh cakap Melayu. (Eh, she speaks Malay)". Of course lah. *proud*

I just don't speak my mother tongue FML.

And that's pretty much what I did. I really really wanna go back there just so I have more time to enjoy the resort. Bedmate, now a super good friend shared with me the Groupon ads which listed the night for RM700, plus minus... Like that, who wants to teman me there lah, so pricey!

One day, someday, I hope...

Nevertheless, would super recommend the place, there is 2 king size bed (super comfy pillows!) to share with your friends and family, a dipping pool (unless you go to the other Lexis resort then you'll get your private pool), sauna, awesome view of the straits, and fun time cycling. In case you get bored there's the lounge and karaoke. Ostrich farm nearby too LOL.

(ps, Vivi-grammar : add mate to just any possible noun. Coined the word "toiletmate" six years ago, yo!)
