Cherating, Chukai and Kemaman

Was off to Cherating for a few days for a much needed break...
It was really relaxing, idling time away at the beach, enjoying the sea breeze...listening to the waves, lapping on beach..the smell of salty sea..Popping over to the Turtle Sanctuary to check out the graceful turtles...and the cute hatchlings (2 days old)..Not forgetting having a cuppa at the famous (or infamous?) Haipeng at Chukai..while savouring the utterly lip smacking satar at Kuala Kemaman,before popping over at night to Paka, to check out the uber cool, futuristic, fire breathing Petronas oil refineries.. ....will be updating my makan(eating) sessions at these places soon!

My parents used to live in Paka for a number of years. I used to look forward to visiting them at the quaint but futuristic looking town. The steel scenery was always awesome.
