Restaurant Weng Yin Seafood Teluk Kemang

Malaysia's seaside resort of Port Dickson is full of surprises. From my first trip there during the inaugural Malaysian Raptor Watch 2000, until now 2014, I didn't know this Restaurant existed. Based on a few blogs that I've read, the review was generally good. However, nothing beats experiencing it for oneself. There was a new fully air-conditioned extension built next to the open air block. Sign of the growing popularity of this seafood restaurant.

Here were the dishes ordered for my family of five, including my niece and nephew:-

Hokkien Mee, which consisted of less-thicker egg noodle as it seems Port Dickson locals prefer this version. My niece and nephew finished their portions in record time.

This is perhaps one of the best bamboo clams I've ever had. Cooked Kam Heong style, each bamboo clam was succulent.
Beancurd cooked Kung Po style was for my mother as she is vegetarian. Complemented the seafood dishes.
Clams cooked in ginger sauce was nice. Huge clam shells but the clams were quite small.
Three-flavour fish was the signature dish of this Weng Yin Seafood Restaurant. So crunchy that even the tail was edible.
Fried prawns was ordered by my Father. Gone in a matter of minutes so I take it he enjoyed it very much.

Turtle Hatchery in Port Dickson

Short trip to Port Dickson over the July 2014 weekend with family yielded pleasant surprise at the Turtle Hatchery. Hawksbill baby turtles above, swimming freely in the aquarium tanks.

Turtle Hut at Glory Beach Resort which hosted the hatchery.
Threats to the turtles including the illegal and unlicensed harvesting of turtle eggs were posted on the wall of the Turtle Hatchery. Saw a few polysterene boxes filled with sand containing some broken shells - of baby turtles that have hatched.

The signboard just outside the pool where the three Hawksbill turtles are, highlighting the turtle species which are found in Malaysia (although am not so sure whether the Leatherback Turtles can be found in Malaysia anymore):-
Good to know that Fisheries Department of Malaysia has initiated the turtle egg buying program where locals who find these turtle eggs and turn them over to the Department gets paid for each turtle egg that is rescued from poachers. Read a few articles about this at the lobby of the Glory Beach Resort.
