Run Down Downtown

Over the years, the Port Dickson City Centre had changed a lot. Some for the better, but I personally preferred the good old quiet days. These days, PD during weekends and public holidays was a Mecca for traffic, which spelt an unpleasant outing.

Once we reached PD, we really hated going out mainly due to the sheer number of cars trying to pass through these narrow busy streets. The road around Teluk Kemang was especially notorious!

As for the downtown itself, in the last ten years, a number of malls were built. Today, those malls seemed abandoned. Take Oceanic Mall for instance. If not for the main tenant - The Store - the place would probably been closed. Last weekend, the top couple of floors were shut down. I remembered there being shops opened there before. Back then, you could get some bargain, especially clothing for my boys every time we were in PD. Not any longer now.

A sad story.

Since it was a midweek that I went to PD this time, I missed the Pasar Malam on Saturdays. It was located just 500m away from my apartment, saving me the hassle of driving into town. At least the beach at my apartment was still OK.
