Our 2nd Annual trip. And this time we are going to Cherating, Pahang. Had been for this trip for months!
Love the way we travel all these while, and for sure love the people i always travel with.
8am gathered at Gombak after toll BHP and we started our road trip!
First stop for our brunch was Restaurant Ratha at Raub, which I had been missed for more than a year.
They are famous of their curry fish head. The big eater gang surely goes to everything that we found interesting beside than the curry fish head.
Fried chicken, curry chicken, curry squid. I love all of them personally.
And now they even produce curry paste to sell in the restaurant.

After the heavy brunch, we start our journey again towards our resort in Cherating. We stayed in Impiana Resort Cherating for 2 nights. Desmond had booked the resorts half year ago due to this was the public holiday in Malaysia, which means we had a long weekends. (We always planned our trip earlier to get cheaper deal). Gonna write a separate review for the resort later.
When we reached the resort, our rooms were not prepared, so we moved ourselves to next planned destination – Turtle Sanctuary, which located just few minutes away from our resort.
Entry fees is base on donation, you may give how much you like. The Sanctuary is small with only a few exhibits. You may have a closer look at sea turtles and turtle babies. Beside the few pool, there was nothing much you can see there. We didn’t went to their beach to have a look as i saw quite a few people reviewed that they went to the beach beside the sanctuary.

After that, we received the resorts’ call, our rooms were ready. So, we heading back to resort and have a rest.
We went to Berserah Beach in the evening. It is located at Kuantan which beside Teluk Chempedak beach. It is famous because of the previous Malaysia CNY movie. However, we just manage to have a walk around the beach for around 15 minutes due to the drastic weather… raining. Their sands are really soft, when the wind blew, you can see the sands flying towards your legs and hit on you, that was pretty painful.
We had our dinner at Alor Akar Seafood Restaurant, which is recommended by the locals. We have no luck for CRAB! The food was pretty good.

We went to their mall to buy some junk food, drinks, alcohol and drinking water after the dinner while my friend visited he sister there.
We headed back to the resort and have fun in the room. This time we played Monopoly deal which it is a must play game after we started it since CNY.
