Food hunting from Port Dickson till Broga

After hearing so much about Port Dickson's most famous chicken rice from YCGallery, I can't help drool. Finally I got a chance to taste it when he asked me to go Port Dickson to have chicken rice for lunch on that weekdays.

We arrived PD around lunch time and unfortunately the Chicken rice shop closed their business on that day. (T__T) no luck at all, frustrated betul!!!!

Anyway he brought me to his favorite Indian restaurant which famous with mutton curry.

After lunch we went to Rumah Api Tanjung Tuan or Cape Rachado Lighthouse, the country's oldest lighthouse. This lighthouse originally built by the Portuguese in the 16th century.

To access the lighthouse, we need to enter through the entrance of the Tanjung Tuan Forest Resort. A warning sign outside prohibits vehicles from entering, but it's impossible for me to walk in. I come down from the car, push the gate and we drive in to the light house.

from there, follow this steep road to takes you up

At the top, the lighthouse sits on a small hill

I need to climb another 72 steps to reach it

Today, the site is a conservation area for migrating birds

Rumah Api Tanjung Tuan is located at the 10th Mile of Port Dickson. The most suitable place for nature-lovers and bird-watchers. From here, I learned the history about Port Dickson which I don't know before.

Extremely hot weather and we headed back to Port Dickson town to have ABC (same row with chicken rice shop).

only open for few hours, aiya forgot what time liao


crowded most of the time

Before we continue with our next destination Broga for grilled fish, we stopped by at Lucky King Bun.

Belated birthday dinner @ Gobo Upstairs & Sky bar, Traders hotel

YCGallery brought me to Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill to have his belated birthday dinner. Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill located on the 6th floor of Traders Hotel. I love this contemporary restaurant with panoramic views of the Petronas Twin Towers and surrounding areas.

The staff was very friendly and without waiting, he guided us to our table.
