We self-drive to Melaka this time without our helper.. reason being was her passport is being renewed and kept in embassy until ready.. and the passport need few weeks to process.. amazing..
Anyway, it was good experience and there is someone to take care of our terrapins at home :)
We went to the Melaka Planeterium - Adventure Science Center.. the highlight of it was the 3-D (?) movie..
|On our way to Melaka.. hmm, next time I should take pictures of our REHAT stopovers :)|
|The result (taken by Ken):|

We went on a self-drive trip from Singapore to Cherating Beach in Pahang Malaysia from 06-Jun-2011 (Mon) to 08-Jun-2011 (Wed). We drove using the route below:
1. Singapore to Woodlands Checkpoint
2. North South Highway (E2) from JB to Yong Peng (exit)
3. Segamat to Kuantan
4. Kuantan to Cherating
Thank goodness for Nokia Ovi Maps that has GPS without going online.. so no data roaming charges.. the road was 2-way.. quite dangerous to overtake.. EM and I took turn to drive..
Arrived in Eastern Pavilion Boutique Resort & Spa Cherating.. Swam in our private pool and then the hotel's big pool.. went for dinner at Duyong Restaurant.. all was well until the food was served.. Once served, the swarm of flies attempted to attack the food.. we had to furiously fend our food.. ken was so frustrated.. thank goodness none of us laosai.. really BIG flies.. scary..
Went to Hafiz - Cherating River Activities for Fireflies River Cruise.. He started off with explanations - on fireflies life cycle, on his passion for fireflies, etc.. then we sat on the motorboat to the river lining with mangrove trees.. Mr Hafiz flicked his torch lights and the tree lit up.. and he even attracted the fireflies to us on the boat..
Mr Hafiz also organised Turtle Watching trip.. there were turtles sighted.. and we went to the beach.. the beach was in Trengganu, near the border.. we had to walked about 10min across the beach and climbed some rocks.. then we saw the man collecting the newly laid eggs to be hatched at the Sanctuary.. we got to touch and feel the eggs.. really like the size of ping pong balls.. then we saw the mommy turtle dig and cover a "decoy" nest.. seems that after closing up her real nest, she will move away and starts to dig and cover a decoy nest.. ken and wenn managed to touch, feel the turtle shell, flippers, head.. then the mommy turtle slowly return to the sea.. Next, Ken and Wenn were given a baby turtle each to release to the sea.. they talked, sayang'ed and then released them..
In the morning, went to Limbon Art to do some batik t-shirt.. I outlined a design I wanted with wax using a tool called canting.. then the kids helped me painted.. Had to collect my shirt 6 hours later..
We called for room service for sandwiches for tea break.. and then spent the evening at the beach.. no pictures as camera and sand don't mix :)
Evening, we went to Kemaman town for dinner.. you won't believe what he had.. A&W!!.. The men in my life can't take flies any more.. and need an air cond place for food.. :)
After breakfast, we packed up.. then we went to Kuantan to visit EM's aunt.. after lunch we drove back to JB.. visited my sis for dinner and arrived home spent.. now EM and I need another holiday just for the two of us to recover.. it was a fun trip though tiring..
Cost of trip: SGD1.1k.. all in
