Irfan Goes To Cherating

For the Thaipusam / Federal Territory Day holidays, we went for a free night’s stay (plus one extra night of paid stay) at a resort at Cherating in Pahang. It was not realy in Cherating, but further up north towards Chukai, in the seaside hamlet of Chendor. (Don’t ask about all the ‘Ch’ names at the towns there, I don’t get it either.)

It was a resort by the sea, pretty clean, homey and had a relaxing atmosphere. I’m gonna let the pictures tell the stories and I’ll be over there listening to MP3s if anyone needs me.

By the way, the free night stay was an belated anniversary and birthday present to us from Cik Emma. Many thanks to her for booting us out of the house so we can enjoy some fresh air outside the city.

Irfan loved the bedsheets.

After discovering the superb swimming pool, we had to leash Irfan from jumping in immediately because it was in the late afternoon and night was falling.

The fact that the ocean here was rougher and windier than it was in Teluk Batik made Irfan go “Wooo!”

We certainly never say no to free breakfast.

Finally Irfan gets to hit the (non-salt water) body of water usually used for recreational swimming.

We had this picturesque view of the trash outside our window.

We finally left the place happy. Next stop, houses belonging to old friends.
