Ruby's Beach Resort

We all went to Ruby's Beach Resort in Cherating which is on the east coast side of Malaysia. For this trip I packed kibbles for 4 days, shampoo, soft stuffies, dog biscuits, bottled water, food bowl and leash. I also brought along my cage and carrier too. As you can see I am a high maintenance traveller and my 'luggage' usually takes up half of Coolboy's car boot.

We left Kuala Lumpur in the late morning but unfortunately after an hour into our journey, I vomited in the car so Coolboy had to detour into Karak town for a short break and clean me up ! Here the Hoomans ate their lunch at Yik Kee restaurant (Karak) which was famous for their noodles and durian tarts .

Luckily, nobody objected when Coolboy brought me (in a carrier) along for their lunch break. As usual some people were curious and stared at me all the time. The workers in this restaurant asked lotsa questions about me too. "Mmmm nice fur ... what does she eat ? " They also said I was a smart girl after I did the circle trick a few times.

I was sitted at a corner looking at the yummy food

Tempting Seafood Noodle

Can I have some please ?

Finally after 3 hours, we arrived at Ruby's Resort our getaway for next 3 days. Located next to Club Med Cherating and the Turtle Sanctuary, the resort has simple accomodation that catered for budget travellers like us. The resort's chalets are basic but comfortable enough and has amenities like air-condition, hot showers, TV, tea/coffee and ... bath towels are provided. Food and drinks in this place is expensive eg RM10 for a plate of fried rice ! But the best part is this place has a fantastic beach front less than a minute walk away.

The seafront is close by Ruby's Resort

We stayed in this chalet - Palm. The other chalet in orange colour is Tembusu.

More Chalets

Me checking out the bathroom area in our chalet. That's the back door.

Eeeks ... my eyes look freaky in this pic.

The patio. HUGE mozzies likes to hang out here during night time.

Whilst the Hoomans went out to Town for lunch, they 'left me' in the patio area ! Not to worry it was safe for me.

There were cute animals scurrying about the resort garden and they came in pairs like a mini Noah's Ark actually. Ruby takes really good care of them and the animals run free in her garden.

A pair of rabbits

There were 2 cats. Tiger (pic above) and Furby (who is not in the pic)

2 pairs of baby turtles. No name yet. Oh, I must not forget Mork and Mindy (no pics), a pair of giant turtle.

Entrance of the Resort

In this resort, Pets are allowed to stay in the chalets and roam about except for the Cafe area which is off limits. Ruby the Owner allows Pets only on non-peak days such as weekdays or when there are non-Muslims staying there. Pet Owners are not encouraged to make bookings on Public Holidays. However, it is best to give her a call to ask which day is suitable for Pets. Contact here.

Directions by road: From Kuala Lumpur drive along the East Coast Highway until the END of the expressway and turn off on the left exit when you reach the big green signboard that says Jabur/Beserlah/Cherating. There is a Phase 2 from Jabur - Kuala Trengganu but this section is not yet ready. The journey from Kuala Lumpur to Cherating is around 3½ hours.

Update: Project Dogway is underway

This is not just for pugs and their owners - any dogs can compete in this contest. Unfortunately cat entries will not be admitted at this time. Email your pictures and descriptions to: by NEXT MONDAY, August 3rd! Click here for more information.


After missing out on several competitions, it is just weird to sit around and not join in the fun, right ? So we are entering a new contest - The Kong Photo Contest starting soon at Amber and Faya's new blog.

There is also another contest coming soon organised by Lady Pug Mugs called Project Dogway which is similar to the TV show Project Runway... dogway ... runway ... Get it ? Project Dogway is different cos you are creating fashion for cute furkids like me. Hmmm ... interesting concept but fun.

Do run over and give all your support. Snort.

Sun, Sea and Sand

Throughout my 3 days here in Cherating all I did was run free on the sand, laze under the sun and played in the sea.

The whole beach belong to ME ME ME !

We will remember You

In Memory of (DONUT)
Who went to the Rainbow Bridge 1 year ago today

When first we met,
You were so tiny and so lonely,
But not for long . . .
You gave your little life to us;
And what a life it was !
But when you were gone,
We felt so lost and miss you much,
In our heart your image is deeply etched;
Since you'll never be forgotten, we vow to you today
A hallowed place within our heart is where you'll always stay.
We will remember you . . .
