Part of a challenge I had to do today (Lita roped me into the Daily Challenge website; it's a feel-good and be-good-to-yourself kinda place) was to look up the history of the place where I live.Full Feed Generated by Get Full RSS, sponsored by USA Best Price.
At first, I thought: Duh... this is Malaysia lah ... But, then I thought: why not?
This is the first thingy that popped up, and this is what I found, about the history of Port Dickson. I don't know how true this is - for that, I'd need to do some real checking and triangulation, but for now, this seems sorta right . . . .
For sure, the original shop-houses are still there.
Brief History (Sejarah)
About a century ago, Port Dickson town was a part of the ocean, during the high water tide, the water might raise up to the railway near Jalan Lama. In those time, both streets of Jalan Baru and Jalan Raja Aman Shah did not yet exist.
This text, along with the GRAMMAR, was taken from here - and taken sans permission. Do visit it to see what PeeDee WAS. For one, the main road out of town - Jalan Pantai (Coast Road) no longer 'hugs the coast' like the opening paragraph promises .... Though, it was true long, long ago. With land-reclamation, the beach and coast is a bit of a mess.
But, it is still a beautiful place. Especially when the weekend-and-holiday visitors are NOT around. Heheheeee. It is quiet, and rustic, and the people are lovely. Chuan and I are so glad we moved here :)
Here are some pix that we took just last week - around the Yacht Club area, where Chuan can usually be found - fishing, of course ;)
