Sunset Dinner at the Beach

Since it was a lovely, sunny day, Hubs suggested having dinner at Hao You (Good Friend) Seafood. The alfresco dining there was very basic and no frills with tables and chairs set up right on the sand itself, making it a very fun meal experience for Bubs.

Poking around on the beach while waiting for dinner to be cooked. There were bits and pieces of litter around the area so we kept our shoes on. As you got closer to the water, the sand was a lot cleaner and dotted with tiny seashells. I was lucky enough to find a whole spiral one to add to our shell collection. Bubs was freaked out by the waves and refused to go closer, earnestly telling me that "there are sea monsters in there, Mummy".

I was surprised at how good the chicken satay was; it's different in the sense that you don't get a separate dish of dipping sauce and the gravy is smothered over the tender chunks of meat. At RM1 a stick, I thought it was a little pricey but still a must have. I don't know what the real name of these spiky little sea slugs are, we've always called it as "iron nail shellfish" in Hokkien and it's my favourite when paired with sweet chilli sauce.

The last rays of the sun bathing everything in a golden glow coupled with the fresh, tangy sea breeze somehow made dinner tastes even better :)
