The Dizfunqtional Port Dickson Trip - Chapter 2

(view Chapter 1 here)

CHAPTER 2: THE TOURISTS FROM SUBANG JAYA



Ah yes, Port Dickson...

...where the sea was as pretty as the Subang Jaya drainage and the beach as soft as the Sunway Lagoon Theme Park.

Surely, the best way to enjoy the vacation was simply to watch the idiot box for the whole day!!! :)


The Malaysian Sadako / Ju-On.

Such a wonderful vacation....^_^

....




Wait a sec...was this for real?


....

OH HELL NO! How could watching television be the centre of this vacation??? This is a _Dizfunqtional_ trip...which meant this:



Playing water like a bunch of dysfunctional people, that's us.

Childish fun as many would have said, but splashing around water has always been fun, no?



Fat man's splash


Fatter man's splash

The crew were in and out of this swimming pool for over two hours, jumping and splashing around which made us took 1/3 of the pool.



Splashing around wasn't the only thing we could play with. We brought a beach ball to make sure we shed some kilograms before our dinner (and regaining all the weight loss).


We cry and throw tantrums whenever the ball's off the pool. Serious.

There were other activities at the hotel such as a paintball target shooting...but rather than wasting money shooting stationary targets we decided to cam whore:


After effects of children shooting paintball at us.


Choose your target...I know you like the black pants!

We made so much noise, I swore some of the other local tourists would have whispered "Ni mesti datang dari KL" ("They must have come from KL").

No matter. A simple fun like this would boost anyone's morale. I'm sure I was.



Free Willy!

The Dizfunqtional Port Dickson Trip - Chapter 1

-------------------------------------------------------------
Yeap, it's been a long time coming....but here it is, and update!

CHAPTER 1: HOW TO STEAM EGGS WITH YOUR CAR




About 7 a.m., I picked up Daniel and my cousin Jason to rendezvous at Joshua's home. We left from my friend's crib for breakfast after that...something special considering that all of us are used to having lunch as breakfast. While having our breakfast, Joshua had a marvelous idea:

"What say we steam some eggs with a car engine??"

Why not? :)

First, we got some aluminium foil.



Of course, the eggs. We brought four.



Wrap the eggs with the aluminum foil.



We wrapped the eggs with three layers of aluminum foil, since we had no idea if the eggs will break from the extreme heat.



Now that the router-lookalike wrapping was all set, we placed it in the engine compartment of the car.



We wrapped it around the handle bar tightly so that the eggs don't move around and breaking it, which would have made the car smell like fried eggs.



That's it! So we left Subang Jaya, sang all sorts of songs with a Char Siew Pau theme as we passed by Seremban (take Daft Funk's "One More Time" and change that to "Char Siew Pau"...hopefully you can imagine the sound of it :) ) and reached the township of Port Dickson.

We stopped by a kopitiam in hopes to see the results of our "Eggs on the Go". If it worked, we might start a business model of steaming food with cars.

Sorry, no sound.

OH NO! It was not even cooked a lil' bit at all :(



It was a disappointment for sure, but we haven't gave up on it yet. So we wrapped the eggs with two layers of aluminum foil and placed it closer to the engine this time.



This time though, we just left the eggs alone while we searched for items for our BBQ session...


This is our fire starter.

...and of course, searched for our hotel (named Glory Hotel). After all that hassle, I could finally say...



Hello, Port Dickson.
