Honey Lime Honeymoon At Cherating

Okay, I can’t think of anything to write about, so I’m going to write about our honey lime honeymoon. We decided on Cherating because it was nearby and quite affordable. Poey Chin wanted to stay in a chalet so I booked a poolside Garden Villa chalet in Holiday Villa Cherating.

On the Monday after our wedding, we started our journey to Cherating. It was our honeymoon, and the sky was crystal clear on the morning we set out from our condo.

On one side of the road you can see bunnies playing in the garden, and on the other side of the road there were five Shih Tzu puppies playing hunting games with each other. Two love birds were perched on a tree branch chirping the song “Say A Little Prayer For You”.

The breeze and fresh air heightened our joy as we couldn’t stop smiling and remembering the wonderful moments we had at our wedding.

Okay, okay I admit it wasn’t like that. We got stuck in a traffic jam in KL on the way to Karak highway. After half an hour we decided to stop and have breakfast before continuing our journey.

The drive to Kuantan was quite uneventful except for the adventure we had exploring the lonely roads outside Kuantan town. Am I the only one to complain that there are no signboards to Cherating?

We arrived at the hotel and checked in to our ‘chalet’ which was actually a dim room raised on stilts. We had lunch at the hotel coffee house where we ordered some western food. The hotel was quite deserted, and it took quite a long time for the food to be served. While waiting we took out my new Nikon D40 camera and took some photos.

During lunch I decided to ask for another room. The hotel staff were so nice. They gave us a free upgrade to a suite. After eating we went to our big big room.

Funny story about our room. We had to call housekeeping several times to ask for some items that were missing, such as floor mats and a lightbulb (!?), and we had to get them to fix a leak in the toilet. They actually dismantled the whole WC and spent 15 minutes doing a mini-renovation in there! We didn’t care about the disruption and lack of privacy since we were on holiday.

At night we went to have dinner at the coffee house again. We didn’t know where else to eat, since we were told that the hotel was far far away from civilisation (turns out that restaurants were just 10 minutes away). We sampled their Chinese dishes menu.

The next morning we woke up early and went to the beach to see the sun rise. Unfortunately there were too many clouds that morning.

*Playing around with my camera tripod* WHACK! “Darling, got mosquitoes here la”

We spent the rest of our honey lime honeymoon doing romantic stuff such as:

  1. Holding hands
  2. Walks on the beach (before I got sunburned)
  3. Eating slow meals
  4. Planning what to do next
  5. Napping
  6. Exploring the resort trying to see how other rooms look like
  7. Writing Thank-you cards to our wedding helpers
  8. Trying to cook a teppanyaki dinner
  9. Dan lain lain lagi

We really enjoyed ourselves. It was nice and quiet. The perfect setting for our honey lime honeymoon. The hotel staff was friendly and the room was clean. We would definitely visit Cherating again some day.

P/S: I have no idea what a honey lime honeymoon means, but doesn’t it sound so cute?
