First trip of the year 2015 goes to.....Club Med Cherating!!
Actually this trip was not a part of my plan because initially I felt like staying at home. However, since my mom insist I should go and that my sister had made an arrangement which included me, so I went along. (̶◉͛‿◉̶) Noted that I've been told that my little cousin bro will travel along but I've been tricked as soon as I arrived to the airport. So don't be surprised/feeling weird seeing my group consisted with only aunties and uncles. Lolx....*way to go, mom* (ू˃̣̣̣̣̣̣︿˂̣̣̣̣̣̣ ू)
Anyhow, I am not upset or whatsoever...cause a part of me was quite exited for the trip too when the date of travelling is around the corner. Even a day before the trip, I was so busy packing and looking for stuffs like sunblock and things my sister have requested. So yep, basically who don't love travelling?!! (>‿◠)✌
Since my group is mainly consists of aunties and uncles, nothing much extreme activities I can do at there. So this trip, for me, is all about relaxation and chillax (which I love the most!!!) hahahahaa!!! Unless coming here with a bunch of friends, I think I will just slack around instead of playing those sport activities such as archery, flying trapeze, rainforest walks, kayaking and others. But luckily, on my sister's off day, I get to try out sailing. =D
Another lucky side I wanna add on is that my group loves taking photo too....hahaha!! So yep, we took alot of photo during our stays in Club Med. Well....photo as memories is better than nothing. (¬‿¬) keke..
Club Med Cherating is abit different when compared to ClubMed Bali or Bintan which I went previously. Little that I know, after my sis explained to me only I get to know that Club Med Cherating is the oldest Club Med in Asia. Lolx....no wonder I feel it's kinda old-looking. *teehee* However, I still love the place because nature and antique-looking-building or stuffs is my kind of "thing" (✿◠‿◠)
In the boutique shop located within the resort, is where all the signature Club Med shirt (with the numbering) can be found.
Fyi, different resort has their own number. For example, for the number "45" and "88" represent ClubMed Cherating. So, each time we travel to different Club Med, confirm we will buy at least one piece of the shirt for collections. o(=´∇｀=)o
Group pic where everyone is wearing Club Med's Shirt
One fun features that I love about Club Med is that, they have this dress code/theme thingy on every night. So the guest can choose to join (or not to join) the theme and be a part of the team for the night activities. Actually nothing special about this dress code thingy, is just that by wearing the dress code I feel more of my participation to the team. ≧◠‿◠≦✌
Anyway, dress code of the night (Day 1): Black and White
Dress code of the night (Day 2): Free elegant
Dress code of the night (Day 3): Asian night
I choose flowery clothes (abit similar to batik) instead of cheongsam cause I scare hot. *shy*

bringing me to Zen Pool
One of my FAVOURITE spot of all at the Zen Pool.
After sailing, this is the best spot for me to relax and chill while enjoying the breeze of the sea as well as drowning myself into the beautiful scenery.
One word, AWESOME!!
Since my mom and the others did not went to the Zen Pool on the other day due to tiredness after sailing, so they decided to go Zen Pool the next day after looking at the photo I took.

What is Club Med?
Noted that some of my friends are not aware or do not know what Club Med is all about. To be honest, I am not surprised at all because if it wasn't my aunty, personally I also do not know what is Club Med too. All thanks to my aunty for introducing Club Med to me and my sister few years back. ٩(˘◡˘)۶ So I am gonna summarize this in short as anyone can googled it up anytime. =D
Club Med (in full as Club Mediterranee), is a type of all-inclusive vacation resorts found in many parts of the world, usually in exotic locations such as Maldives, Sahoro, Guilin, Bali and others.
