Short Christmas Break

The day after Christmas, we left for Port Dickson for a short family Christmas break. Prior heading to Port Dickson, we went to Restaurant Asam Batu Laut for lunch.

It was packed needless to say since it is a Public Holiday but the waiting time is not long.
The dishes that we had there. It was yummy and reasonably priced. Would definitely come back here again.

The view behind the restaurant. It was low tide that time. Apparently the original restaurant is on stilts but currently it's based on solid ground and those stilts are sitting in crumbles which you can see from the restaurant.

After lunch we proceeded to Ilham Resort in Port Dickson. This is my 2nd time here. The first time was in August 2011 when we have a short escapade upon receiving a call from my brother.

We got the apartment number 2011. What a nice way to end the Year 2011 :D

The kiddos were eager to hit the beach and pool right after checking-in. Alas the beach is rather dirty. Dirtier than the last time I was here.

The kiddos contented with some sand play before heading to the pool.

That night we went out and scoured for food. Ended up in Restoran Ummi since our choice eatery - Jin Men Grill Fish was closed!!

It's pricey although I must say their grill fish is good for the flesh is moist and tender unlike the usual grill where the meat is all dried up.

We went for dessert after this and had durians! :D

It was a fruits galore for me for there's rambutan, longans, mangosteen and duku langsat. Oohh I lurve them all!

The next morning the kiddos hit the pool again.

Before checking-out, we climbed one of the hotel towers and had a spectacular view from above.

Before heading back to KL, we had lunch at Restaurant Weng Yin Seafood Village.

On the way back, we stopped again for dessert and yes durians again before settling into the car and head home.

It was a nice short Christmas break for our family.
