Genting Travelogue Sneak Preview

Hi all! I’m sure many of you knew that I went on a sponsored trip by Resorts World Genting and OMY.SG to Genting for a 3D2N trip along with 4 other lovely bloggers and all our mummies. So this post will be a sneak preview of what happened over this 3D2N trip and there will be a few more posts and a video coming up!

And like I mentioned, without OMY.SG and Resorts World Genting, this trip will not happen and all the wonderful memories will not exist. So thanks loads!! XD

Bloggers who went on the trip are :

and yours truly me! XD

See this colorful building? It’s the most colorful building other than the theme park in Genting. Yes, it’s the First World Hotel and we are staying at Tower 2 Lv 27, World Club rooms which is the higher end rooms in First World. I love the hotel room, it’s totally awesome! Wait for my other posts for a detailed hotel room tour! 😛

Our first meal in Genting was at Ming Reng Restaurant that specialized in XingJiang cuisine. Lamb is the specialty here!

Day 1 was pretty much free and easy and we had our dinner at Genting Palace Restaurant. I would say it’s the best meal I had in Genting!

We wake up as early as 7 plus to have breakfast at Coffee Terrace! Buffet Breakfast and I must say it’s a wide spread of food! It’s one of my most scrumptious breakfast ever as I occasionally skip breakfast. 😛

How can we miss out the Theme Park when we are at Genting! I tried a few rides, tried to pull my mum on some but failed. ><

Then it was lunch at Hainan Express located at the Theme Park Hotel for local delicacies.

What can be more relaxing than a spa massage after a whole morning at the theme park? We had the whole place to ourselves!

Dinner at Happy Valley Seafood where we did not only have seafood. 😛

Sam Hui’s Concert to end the say with! I would say our mums enjoyed it more than us since he’s more in their era as compared to us! 😛 We bloggers took a photo with him though! We have to wait for it to be sent to us as we are not allowed to use our own cameras.

Our last meal in Genting, at the World Club Lounge located at Lv 28 of First World Hotel. Buffet Breakfast with an awesome view of Genting. Life couldn’t get better than this.

How could we not visit The Visitors’ Galleria to learn about the history of Genting! More in the upcoming posts!

“How I miss the cooling weather in Genting!”

Stay tune to more upcoming posts and video on my Genting Travelogue!

XOXO,

Bangkok Travelogue: Lodging

Hi all!

This shall be my first post on my Bangkok trip and I’m going to talk about the place I stayed in for the trip!

I stayed in this hotel named Take A Nap for all 5 days of my trip and I really like it there!

Nice staff, nice rooms and convenient location!

It’s not exactly a hotel la, more like a hostel but with service like a hotel I would say!

 

The reception.

Lobby with very comfortable sofas and computers for us to use.

That’s my mum reading the letters left by people who stayed there.

They have a nice recreation room with a pool table and it’s also the place where we had our breakfast daily.

 

Hotel Breakfast~ Simple yet delicious!

They have this quote on the wall which I find very meaningful.

The view from 2nd level corridor.

The first room I stayed for the first 2 nights.

All the rooms have different themes!

Hee, a photo with my mum and my friend in the room!

Second room we stayed in!

Sea breeze theme!

Less colors but simplicity at its best.

There’s even an extra bed upstairs. Something like loft concept!

Each of the rooms comes with a mini fridge and a TV and all of the rooms are fully air conditioned!

 

Here’s a photo with the super friendly boss of the place!

She’s a really sweet lady!

I would recommend this place to those heading to Bangkok for a trip! XD

You can check out the website for more pictures of the rooms! XD
