Weekend honeymoon getaway in Port Dickson (part 1)

Weekend two weeks ago was spent with my husband. My husband came home for four days and we went to Port Dickson. We booked a Premium Tower Sea View room at Lexis Port Dickson, around 43 minutes away from Sepang. It was not that far after all.

We had to check in at 4pm on Saturday which we thought was a waste because that was really late compared to the time we had to check out which was at 12pm on Monday. From outside, the hotel looked normal, not really that special but as we entered our room, we realised that we entered into the bathroom first and had to walk through to get to our bedroom. The toilet was clean, it was sealed after it was cleaned and sanitized. There was a bathtub and next to it was a place to shower.

Inside our room, there were two large sized bed; one king-sized bed facing a television set and the other one was a queen-sized next to the window where we can see the view of the sea. There was a door to the balcony and we can see the sea view from our balcony. Every evening of our stay, we sat on the chair there and look at the view of the sunset. It was awesome!

View from our room

In our room we get to use our room wifi and they have a few TV channels to choose from (TV1, TV2, TV3, NTV7, 8TV, Fox Sports, Disney Channel, Discovery Channel, Vision 4). Other facilities available for free in the room: hair dryer, toiletries (they even have bath salt), electric kettle, mini fridge, towels, tea and coffee and drinking water. If you want to drink the can drink available in the mini fridge, your are charged RM5 per can. If you need to use the iron, just call the housekeeping and they will send it to you right away.

Breakfast was included but we only managed to try their breakfast on the last day of our visit. The food was great, and we were shown to an empty table instead of looking for it on our own. The buffet table was never empty as they kept topping up food on the table so we did not have to wait to get the food we wanted.

The hotel have varieties of family activity, they have a pool but I really think the pool area is small. It is only a walking distance to the beach.

During check out, we were served cookies and you can help yourself with the drink provided at the lobby.

Overall, I give them four stars out of five especially for great service. You can read my review on the hotel and also others' reviews on tripAdvisor.

Song dedication: 'You are the One' by Raef

This is dedicated to my new BFF(TJ).
Kanda, you are the one for me.

You Are The One
by Raef

I thought of this before over a million times
Who would've ever thought that it would be our time?
I just know it, 'cause you're the one
It ain't a selfish love, when I'm with you
You remind me of Allah, and so I know it's true
I'll just say it: you are the one

Won't you be my BFF (best friend forever) and ever?
Won't you be my partner after this world?
We'll see it, when we believe it together
Dreams are meant to be, 'cause you're the one for me

I never thought that I would ever feel this way
I ask Allah to bless you every single day
I'll just say it, 'cause you're the one
And when times are tough, and we've got the world to see
Standing right beside you is where I want to be
I just know it: you are the one


I prayed about this just over a million times
Who would ever thought that I could call you mine?
I just know it, 'cause you're the one
And when there's gray in our hair and we've not much to do
I want to spend the rest of my days with you...
Oh don't you know it?
You are the one, you are the one
Oh won't you be the one?

He is just one rajin guy.

Yes, he is just one rajin guy.

That day when my husband was home, I needed more time to get ready to send him to the airport. As usual, he was ready before me. By now he has learnt that most women, including his wife take time to get ready. After performing my salah, I took off my salah attire and had to get dress. Without me asking, he folded my salah attire with the praying mat, trying to copy the way I used to fold them.

The result? Tadaaaaaa....

I know it was not that neat. However, it was his willingness to help that matters. Thank you, darling! I love you!

Yes, he is just one rajin guy. He even cooked for us when I was busy with my work that day as I was way past deadline. And, he too helped out in my grandma's kitchen, he helped my Mom at the kitchen, he helped his Mom. Oh, he is just so rajin!

I love him for his rajinness and I do not like it when people compare me to him. 'Oh, laki dia rajin, tak macam bini dia!' Yeah people, I am not that rajin, that is why Allah paired me with him, to balance things out. Do you have problem with that?

And NO, I'm not a bully! I did not even ask him to do them. He volunteered. After all, he is just one rajin guy.

Him, away again.

Today is the second time I sent him off to the airport and just like before, those tears would only spill out after I drove away from the airport.

Being married for five weeks and having to see my husband go off to work in Sarawak is a painful experience for me. I know sending him off eventually would not become so hard even though it still is sad to be away from him.

A friend who wanted to help her brother and future sister-in-law asked me how to cope with living away from your spouse? Frankly, I was, and still am, struggling to cope, and I was not the one to answer that. I was the one who needed to know the answer.

By now I guess I am starting to see the answer bit by bit. Faith in God, His plans and His knowledge are now the things that soothe me, and yes, being grateful and good friends who share their story and offer solution instead of merely saying 'sabar lah' helped too. Like earlier tonight, I had a chance to private message my old primary school friend, Yuhanis. I felt better after that.


Yuhanis is pregnant with her third child, she has two boys who can be pain in the butt when they misbehave, it is her first time experiencing really awful morning sickness and the best part is, her husband only comes home from work every fortnight if he is not busy. She is a strong woman indeed. Her situation gave me something to self-reflect. If she can go through it, why can't I? After all, this situation is all given by God, He surely know what is best for us and how much we can handle.

So okay, I am going to be more thankful and cherish those moments we used to spend together, improve myself inside out, and wait patiently for my husband to come home.

Life Now.

Single-like, even though I am married.

What? Married?

Yes, I am married now to a kind-hearted, hard-working sport teacher and I am living miles away from him. We had the chance to spend time together for two weeks and he went off on a flight, just like the person I once saw in my dream during Ramadhan last year. Now another Ramadhan is approaching and I wish to dream about this man again since he is going to be across the sea until end of Ramadhan.

Yes, he is across the sea, it is expensive to visit each other often and here I am living life like before. Nothing much has changed, only my status and maybe new responsibilities and new family members.

Eh, by the way, did I tell you that I am now teaching at a secondary tahfeez school called Khalifah Model School Secondary (KMSS)? The school is under the management of Khalifah Education Foundation and currently we only have classes for form 1 and form 2. InshaAllah next year we will have our first batch of form 3.

So, with me still wanting to keep my job and he loving to visit his family as often he could, we are working our best to get him transferred to Peninsular Malaysia as soon possible. And anyway, I really think a place for a wife to be is near her husband no matter how sweet the feeling of meeting our other half after missing him/her so badly. Anyone think they can help us? Drop me an e-mail if you think you can help, thank you in advance!

Oh how I miss him now!
