28.4.12 - Trip to Cherating - Day 1

We joined in a 3D/2N trip to Cherating, Pahang with a large group of friends and their children. The drive to Cherating was about 3.5 hours, but it felt much longer than that. Perhaps it was because there wasn't much things to see when we were on the highway. We stayed at Ruby's Resort, which was more like a motel, actually. It is a basic accommodation without any swimming pool.

We stayed at one of the smaller rooms on the right, called Bamboo. It was very small, just slightly larger than the size of 2 single beds, and came with a toilet attached. It was scorching hot when we arrived and the heat was overpowering - one of those rare days (perhaps made more intense by being near the sea), so the only thing hubby and myself wanted was to hibernate in the air-conditioned room, never mind that it felt claustrophobic. The room was RM150 per night with surcharge on weekends.

There was a nice treehouse at a shady tree next to the resort.
When it was cooler in the evening, we walked across to the beach.

The wind and the waves were quite strong in the evening. The boys played and jumped over the waves.

Ruby's Resort is more like a sanctuary for animals, as the owner, Ruby, takes in stray dogs and cats. This is a suitable place if people want to have a vacation with their pets, as she has special rooms where the family can stay with their pets. 

Some of the animals there. There were dogs too. 
From our room, on the way to the meals area for dinner, we came across sleeping dogs and cats. Don't get me wrong, I love animals, and used to take care of several in my younger days. However, it was a little disconcerting to be eating so close to many stray dogs and cats roaming about the place. It also dampened my appetite to be eating at a dusty table with lizard droppings and a cat jumping on to the chairs and tables, trying to get at the food. I had to close an eye and think of more attractive things. Not advisable for people who are a stickler for cleanliness, who prefer a more hygienic area for their meals.
