Day 2 of Genting was the most happening day for us all!
Call time was 7.45 am for all of us as breakfast is at 8am. It was really nice to wake up to nice weather, nice view and all!
Breakfast was at Coffee Terrace and it’s buffet style. And I must add on, international buffet style. You have the traditional Chinese style porridge, Western Style Bacon and Eggs to Japanese style Soba! So I took the chance to try a little of everything! The mum was happily choosing her choice of breakfast too. Till now, she still say she misses the waffle fries she had during the breakfasts at Genting!
As they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day! So we had our fill before heading to the one of the main attraction of Genting, no not the casino but to the THEME PARK!!
I love theme parks! Though I actually only been to like 1 theme park? So the theme park in Genting is my 2nd theme park! What’s so special about the theme park in Genting you may ask? Genting actually have an Outdoor and an Indoor Theme Park! Imagine taking a roller coaster zooming around in the mall. That’s what Melissa and me tried. 😛 It’s quite cool to zoom across the shops and screaming our lungs out! 😛
There are like those Tik Gum stalls at the theme park and they bring back memories of the fun fair we used to have here in Singapore last time. In fact, Genting Theme Park actually gives one the nostalgic feeling as it have been there for quite some time. It still remains the style of theme park last time as compared to the new ones.
I managed to try out a few rides and it’s fun! Though I failed to convince my mum to take the more exciting rides, she did take the monorail with us all. The monorail is a ride that will take you one round the theme park through the indoor theme park too. You get to see awesome view of the hills and clouds too! I think it’s a ride that’s suitable for the whole family! Especially our mums who are all a little high in age and can’t take those exciting rides like the roller coasters etc.
After walking around and having loads of fun in the theme park, it’s time for lunch! Lunch is at Hainan Express which is located at the Theme Park Hotel. And as you can guess from the name of the eatery, it’s Hainan Style food for lunch! Other than Hainan Chicken Rice, they actually have like Prawn Noodles, Asam Laksa, Curry Noodles etc. Not forgetting the thick toast too!
After a good lunch, we took a walk back to the Maxim Hotel where we are going to have our Spa Massage at the M Spa! On our way, we passed by Coffee Terrace where we had our breakfast and met this Clown! He’s really humorous and made us all laugh! Maybe you can try catching him around the area while you’re in Genting!
Did I mentioned that we have got access to Wifi at M Spa? All of us bloggers were busy updating twitter etc while waiting at the lobby area of M Spa for them to prepare the things for our massage! We literally had the whole spa place to ourselves and that is really nice. All our mums were really looking forward to the massage too! My mum was super excited about it as she kept hurrying me to stop taking photos and just go ahead with the massage! LOL!
So for the massage, most of us did the Balinese style massage and a body scrub using an Orange salt which is good for whitening! The whole process lasted for about 2 hours and I must say it’s really awesome. All of us looked more refreshed after the massage and scrub. Our skin were all smooth and brighten up!
Not forgetting the staff at M Spa were really friendly and helpful. I was asking one of the therapist about something but she did not really understand English so she immediately went to get someone who does to attend to me. That is something really nice and I really appreciate that.
After the awesome massage, it’s time for dinner! Seafood dinner to be exact at Happy Valley Seafood! Ok la, it’s not entirely seafood but still. 😛 They have a wide variety of seafood available and all are fresh from the tank! 😛
After our seafood dinner, we walked around exploring the little shops around Genting before heading to the highlight of the day! Sam Hui’s concert! Those who do not know who Sam Hui is, his Chinese name is 许冠杰, a very famous Hong Kong singer/actor. Not really our generation kind of star but definitely suit the taste of our mums!
I do actually recognized some of the songs he sang from the old Hong Kong movies that I’ve watched when I was really young. I was actually quite amazed at how he actually left the stage and walked into the audience and interact with them. That’s quite cool ain’t it?
The 5 of us bloggers actually get to take a photo with Sam Hui with 4 other of his lucky fans! So we left our mums at the audience after the concert ended to take the photo with Sam Hui. It was quite a fun sight seeing all our mum sitting at the audience from below the stage.
It was around 11pm plus nearly 12am after everything ended at the concert. It was a super long but fulfilling day for all of us! I’m really glad to see my mum had fun! And of course it was back to the hotel room to rest for the night. And I took an extra long bath in the bath tub that night since it’s going to be our last night in Genting. I really do like the hotel room we stayed in! It’s so comfortable!!
And that’s the end of Day 2 at Genting! Stay tune to Day 3 which is our final day at Genting!
Once again, thanks Resorts World Genting and OMY.SG for this awesome 3D2N at Genting!
