She's hooked (DSC2583)
I grew up in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan (i.e in the west coast of Malaysia) I have always lived within walking distance from the ocean. First in Port Dickson where the beach was barely 10 minutes walk away and my mother had a house in Batu Empat, Port Dickson. Lots of time was spent there as a child. As a result, the ocean sights, sounds, and smells bring peace to my soul.
Now ever since 1980 I've settled down in Terengganu which is in the east coast of Malaysia. And we are barely 10 minutes walk to the beach, again. I don't think I could ever live too long in a non-beached town, and an afternoon spent by the ocean is always wonderful! I think my youngest daughter Zahirah (she's 16 months old now) agrees.. because she just would not get out of the water even when it's getting late.
