Eagle Ranch Resort

Eagle Ranch Resort is located at the 14th Mile of Jalan Pantai in Port Dickson. The place is quite secluded which is perfect for a short retreat.

It has a small check in counter and one will sure miss it if wasn't paying attention when driving into the resort. The staffs here are generally friendly but occasionally  give away inaccurate information.

The whole resort adopts a cowboy town as its theme which is more imminent when it comes to their accommodation.

There are a few accommodation options here, the kampung house, log cabins, paddock chalets, bandwagon, tepees

All the accommodation entrance are secured with padlocks. This is definitely a new experience for me.

This is the interior of the tepee, a red Indian hut like room. The room is fit enough to accommodate 2 person only. It's fairy comfortable although you might able to hear the conversation of the adjacent occupant.

I kind of like the horseshoes which also function as cloth hanger. In some culture, the horseshoe is known as a luck talisman.

There ain't much to do here except for horse riding, go-kart and team building activity.  It is also an ideal place to hold meetings due to its serene surrounding and location.

There is a small stretch of beach behind the resort which is ideal for an evening stroll.

Teluk Kemang

Teluk Kemang is regarded as the most popular beach in Port Dickson, some 10 minutes drive from Port Dickson Town

There is a dedicated zone for souvenir shops and hawker stalls. This is definitely an ideal place to get a souvenir home while in Port Dickson

Teluk Kemang Beach is 1.6km long, which starts from Kemang Indah up to Baitu Hilal. Teluk Kemang get its name from a "Tree" which was found by the 5 family members originated from Selangor which were Niat (Penghulu), Bahir and his sons Limat, Neemat and Abd. Samad.

In early 1880, Teluk Kemang area was full of deep forest and swamps. The five family members exploited the area whereby they found a lot of trees which is known as "Pokok Kemang" ( a tree with which has fruits that are small and green in colour).

Seeing that the area was still without a name, they decided to named it as Teluk Kemang because of its location and surrounding area which have many bays and consists of many Kemang trees.

The beach is now a popular destination during school holidays with various water sport activities available.

My Chinese New Year 2012

In the beginning of the year, I had been waiting for the Chinese New Year to arrive as this is the best time for me to spent some quality time with my family and friends.

As usual, firecracker is a must on this very special day and I am "armed" appropriately for the countdown.

When the clock hit midnight, it was like a war zone here in Sibu. The firework was just amazing and I would never miss it for the world.

The aftermath of the night before in way of the main entrance to my house. Hopefully, we will blessed with good luck, wealth and health in the year of the dragon.

I was literally served with hard liquor for the past 2 days. Age is catching up on me and I don't take a lot of those liquor like I used to do in my 20's.

Managed to catch up with Bengbeng on some blogging topics and just to catch up on some issues regarding my hometown. Thanks for the hospitality!

It's a great day to catch up with friends as I don't get to see them very often nowadays. This is without a doubt the best moment for me in 2012.
