Hey, I am back after two weeks of hectic training schedule…Feels good  😀

So, last time on Weekend Watch we stopped at Kuala Gandah National Elephant Conservation Center, had some fun watching my favorite animal – elephants.

From Elephant Sanctuary, we headed to Kuantan town en-route to Cherating Beach. The world famous Club-Med is located in Cherating. The journey from Kuala Lumpur to Kuatan takes 3hours and best is to take Gambang Exit (nearer to town) from highway rather Kuantan Exit.

Note: Eastern part of Malaysia treasures plenty of beautiful beaches to relax and enjoy

Happy scene at Cherating

Neighboring the beach is the Turtle Conservation Center, a place where turtle eggs are safe kept until being hatched before released into the sea. This is one of the government’s action to prevent turtle eggs lost to thief and sold in markets for consumption.  It’s free entrance and if you are lucky you might get to participate in hatchlings release to sea. I am proud to say I got the chance to held “baby” turtles in my palm and set them free 🙂

What a beautiful creature!
