Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson


It has been some time since I went on a break and as the year draws to a close, it's usually the busiest period when it comes to events and recruitment. Two weeks ago, my company (Best Events Services) was invited for a hotel tour at Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson and I jumped at the chance to go as it meant just getting out of routine and hopefully away from the heavy haze in Kuala Lumpur city.

No luck with the haze, though. It was equally bad in Port Dickson, one hour's drive from Kuala Lumpur. Heck, the whole country is badly affected and it does not look like it's going away anytime soon despite the occasional rain.

Google Maps took us there using a longer route, we suspect. Instead of the usual 45-60 minute drive, it took us almost two hours. There was no heavy traffic as we left just before the peak hour. The only other explanation is that we got abducted by aliens along the way.

Anyway, when we reached at 5pm, we were greeted warmly by the Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson Sales and Marketing staff when we arrived and were immediately given our room keys and served a welcome drink and a goody bag which consisted of the event agenda, a really huge mug (which is great for soup, too), notebook and pens.


As it was quite a distance away from the main lobby, a buggy took us to our chalet built above the water. The room has a fuchsia coloured wall with two king-sized beds, marble floor adorned with an image of a hibiscus and glass doors that led us to a bathroom cum dressing area. There is a 2' x 3' glass panel in the centre of the bathroom so you can actually see the sea below you. 

Walk a little further and you will step outside where a private pool and sauna room awaits you.

They had me at the two king-sized beds.

 



We were not due for the hotel presentation until 7.30pm so we did some work on our laptops (it IS a weekday after all) and attempted to watch a movie on the in-built plasma TV.

After freshening up a little, we took a buggy to the ballroom where most of the guests were waiting for the presentation to start. After a dance gambit by their staff, Steve Woon, the Vice President of Sales & Marketing did a slide presentation about the Lexis Port Dickson properties and amenities before the Recreational head enlightened us about the activities that can be held at their hotel. 



We were then ushered for a buffet dinner at Roselle Coffee House. Something we noted when we walked through the hotel is that there is no one theme in the hotel. Some areas are retro with heavy chandeliers, artificial rose filled vases and velvet furniture while some areas are adorned with jelly fish inspired lighting, wave like wall paneling and carpeting and bright coloured modern furniture. Carpet designs also vary from bold colours to the more subdue earth tones.


Roselle Coffee House's decor is classic and we were served outside where we could have seen the sea on a clear day. I loved the roast lamb, squid with salted egg, satay, fried rice with various dishes that they served generously at the buffet dinner. Desserts were a mix of both Asian and Western cakes, kuih and the must have teh tarik and coffee tarik.

The next morning, we had a buffet breakfast at 8.30am before we were shown the meeting rooms, helipad, Panaroma Pool Villa, and Lighthouse with a few floors for dining.










Our tour ended at the Hibiscus Lounge.

Both spacious bedroom and living areas in their 117 tower rooms and 522 overwater villas are tastefully decorated and complemented with avant-garde amenities.

9 Organic Skincare Online Stores in Malaysia

Lately, consumers have been more conscious about the food/ drinks, products that we consume and use. Choosing what to consume or use can be confusing as researchers say one thing and then change their verdict a few years down the road.

For example, there have been lots of contradicting research data about palm oil, coconut oil, corn oil, coffee, tea, wine, and vegetables. Of course, we know that sometimes research is biased towards a certain countries economic gain. A country whose economic growth depends on coffee beans will, of course, say that coffee is healthier to consume than tea and vice versa, wouldn't you think?

So how do we decide what's good for us? Naturally, it's best to just use products that our forefathers (or foremothers?) have been using without any health issues. So it's about going back to basics without the extra preservatives and chemicals. Eat the vegetables that are grown in your garden like how our great grandparents used to do. No land to gro…

Decorated with Mercedes-Benz Stylo's signature colour red, huge flowers, a wall lined with an assortment of single sofas and chairs for guest photo ops and a gold cage in the middle of KL Gateway's centre court, guests were ready to be enchanted by the fashion collection inspired by NEUTROGENA® HAPPY SKIN.
Prettily dressed guests were first ushered to an area where sleek Mercedes-Benz cars were displayed to be admired while they nibbled on hors d'oeuvres and ordered Red Bull served in glasses. At 7.30pm, they were then invited to go the third floor where the fashion show was to be held.





NEUTROGENA®  products were strategically placed at the entrance of the draped show area for guests to try. Beauty Consultants were ready to assist guests with any skincare concerns they may have.


An hour later, the show began once Datuk Nancy Yeoh, President & CEO of STYLO International and Chairman of MBSTYLOAFF arrived but not before Julia Teo, Associate Marketing Director of Johnson…

The Hunt of for the Milky Way Sabah- Day 2 to 4 Ranau and Kundasang

Day 2- Ranau

So hubby and I survived the winter of Tambunan, and we had a simple breakfast of nasi lemak bungkus which was served with a bowl of soup at Tambunan Town (it's a Sabahan norm to have soup served at every meal, we discovered). The group said they were heading to the waterfall about 30 minutes away after breakfast then will check out and head to Sabah Tea Garden, Ranau (where do they get their energy???).

I said we would join them at the waterfall after freshening up at the hotel. Our hotel bed had other plans. It enveloped us and refused to let us go until noon so I meekly messaged Emma that we would join them at Sabah Tea Garden.

After we free-ed ourselves from the clutches of the bed, we made our way to Mahua Waterfall where we were greeted by green and hilly landscapes before reaching a fairly lonely road (really I think we only passed one car on the way there). After a lonely 20 - minute ride, we saw about 20 cars parked at the entrance which is a huge difference …
