The beach!!

One fine weekend, babe and me took a trip down to the sandy beaches of Port Dickson! The journey from Sunway took around 2 and a half hours. So in that
time, there is some time for pre vacation photos!
On the way there, we were talking happily until we started to talk about getting Bb to the UK this Christmas of 2010. There was a long silence. For one hour, my mind poured and schemed on how to get Bb to the UK. I'm a lousy multitasker, and babe was getting annoyed and thought that I did not want to talk to her. It was the longest drive ever.

We finally arrived at our destination. Thistle Port Dickson. It was a 5 star hotel that was newly opened and I managed to get i for the price of a 3 start! Wee! I'll leave the hotel bit to Babe.

Contrary to what I thought, the beach at PD was still in good condition, unlike some places. The sand was still fine.
Our first order of business was to get to the beach! We had strawberries because some weekends ago, Bb missed some from Cameron Highlands! See I so nice!
There were swinglets around the beach so as curious tourists, we took to the skies!
I had my trusty tripod and remote control. Note the kewl sunglasses i got from Lumut!
Whats the beach without your very own bikini girl! No wonder there's global warming...
Next was the swimming pool to cool down the heat! We had coconuts at the pool bar!
Did I mention they had a really big pool? Deep too. Would not recommend this place if you are: 1) short 2) not really good at swimming. Otherwise, you need a life guard or me!

Before dinner, we took to the lounge, trying to get everyone out of the frame.
Nice view from the tannoy. Over looking the swimming pool, there was a bunch of tourists staring at us!
But you think we cared?? We went on to get some more pics!
Then Bb, found the stairway interesting.
I was more into fancy lights! Speaking about lights, we decided to get some light painting done!
It was a first time experience for Bb who autographed this picture with my iPhone!
At night, the pool becomes a really scenic place as the lights turn everything into a spectacular glow!
With the help of a flash module and back lighting, we turned out evening into a romantic photoshoot!
And my model for the nite!
the clouds make an excellent background for the pool fountains!

Time to retire for the night!

We ushered in the morning by visiting the light house next door! Just 200m from the hotel at Tanjung Tuan, this light house is still making sure ships do not park in front of the resorts!
Called the Rumah Api Tuan, the actual light house sits atop a cliff.
The fishermen in the back ground are actually 100 feet below us!
Getting there was a 20 minute hike and you become a blood donor, to mosquitoes.
But you can cheat, drive your car up for a small duit kopi!
What a visit to Port Dickson without getting some sand back! I am now a proud owner of 500 ml of PD sand!!
To see how clean PD was, one can find hermit crabs on the shoreline. Life!
Despite the offshore platforms in the distance, these platforms are just there for maintenance. There is no oil in Selat Melaka fyi!

With out sand secured, time to get back to the real life. Yet, even for a one night trip, we seemed to have found a day of paradise to add to our memories!

敬爱的马来亚佛总理事先生Buddhist Maha Vihara, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia佛寺理事先生以及佛教信徒.

自从Yip Kum Fook (MCA Gombak Chairman)当任主席, 有预谋的迫走本地和尚(吉兰丹), 而遠聘缅甸和尚, 当任主持之后Samnak Sambodhi Thai Buddhist Temple No: 19 Jalan 38 Taman Desa Jaya, Kepong 52100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia(暹廟)就一直发生种种的是是非非, 以引起方民間議論纷纷.

其因是Yip Kum Fook (MCA Gombak Chairman)所领导的理事会, 勾结外耒的缅甸和尚, 以啇業経营, 不依佛法的精神办事, 只借宗教之名捞取权和私利所引起………. 最近又自行一套商业手法, 规定任和人, 若想出家当和尚修道者, 必先供给RM400大元, 否则免谈. 這种啇業手法, 已引起广大的信徒愤怒而不满.

Samnak Sambodhi Thai Buddhist Temple (暹廟)是佛总之联会, 而身佛堂之主席Yip Kum Fook (MCA Gombak Chairman)不以佛陀的教誨, 修心養性, 却反其道而行, 接着权势, 无悪不做, 三妻四妾, 骗财骗色, 破坏別人的家庭.....现在他的排聞满天飞, 不但给佛寺帶耒不好的名声, 也間接的耻辱佛教信仰者.

所从我们祈望马来亚佛总与Buddhist Maha Vihara, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia理事同仁, 给以关注, 共創義举, 维护佛法

此致, 并
祝安康, 工作愉快.

Please translate in Bahasa Malaysia and English, and send to everyone, Thanks
