Genting Travelogue: Day 3

Day 3 was our last day in Genting. Or rather last half a day left.

We were up at around 7 am plus and got ready for our breakfast at around 8.30 am. This time, Breakfast is at Level 28 at the World Club Lounge. Just one level up from where our rooms were.

When we enter the lounge, what greeted us was a great view of Genting. We could see the whole of the outdoor theme park and the other hotels from Level 28. Did I mentioned that Level 28 is the highest floor in Genting?

Although it’s not as a wide variety as compared to the breakfast at the Coffee Terrace, there still many things to choose from! There’s french breads with different type of cheese, pratas, eggs in the way you like it, pancakes, seafood salad to porridge and noodles! There’s curry chicken too!

After breakfast, we bid farewell to Casey who was our guide for the whole of the trip! He’s a really nice and friendly guide who ensured that we have fun and was comfortable throughout the trip. My mum actually click quite well with him! XD The trip would not be as fun without him!

We then head back to our rooms and we decided to all move our luggage to my room as it’s the room most accessible to the lift lobby. Us bloggers then decided to leave our mums in the room while we made our way to the Visitor’s Gallery to take a look at Genting’s History. Genting will not have existed if not for it’s founder Dr Lim Goh Tong. He had the idea of building a highland resort while working at Cameron Highlands many years back and went forward with his idea to build Genting. It was quite an eye opener to look through the exhibits and see the revolution of Genting.

After visiting the Gallery, we decided to do some last minute exploring the shops that we passed by the day before. We also get our Baskin Robbins ice cream fix before heading back to the hotel to “collect” our mums! 😛 We were actually thinking that our mums would have went shopping themselves or came down to the lobby to meet us as we are supposed to head down to the coach waiting area at 12 plus.

Ended up our mums were still at the hotel room and the 4 of us, Shine, Miyo, Grace and me decided to play a little prank on our mums. Miyo rang the door bell and then we all ran to hide when one of our mums came to answer the door. Just nice it was Miyo’s Mummy who came to answer the door. It was super funny to hear their remarks on why there’s no on outside from our hiding area. It was also mad hilarious as we were all running with ice cream cones in our hands! 😛

We were caught red handed when an uncle who walked pass reveal to our mums that there were a few girls outside laughing. LOL. It was actually quite a sight when we enter the room though. Our mums were lying/sitting on the bed chit chatting and all. It seem that they had a really good time!

So we rest for a little while before checking out and headed to the coach area to book our seats for the coach. Our coach were actually delayed for one and a half hours. We sat there chatting to pass time while waiting before my mum get attracted to the Char Kuey Tiao smell and went to buy a plate to share. It was quite a sight to see all our mums sharing one plate of Char Kuey Tiao and it’s really cute!

Soon, our coach arrived and it’s a long way back to Singapore!

I really enjoyed myself during this 3D2N trip in Genting with the rest of the bloggers and all our mums! It’s great to be able to know the other bloggers better during this trip! 😛

Really super thankful to Resorts World Genting and OMY.SG for such a wonderful experience and memories!

Do consider heading up to Genting if you’re looking for a short getaway from Singapore. There you will enjoy awesome cooling weather and there’s many yummy food! Have a whole day of fun at the theme park and head to the spa to relax! And if you’re interested, you can always try your luck at the Casino! Not forgetting there’s actually the Strawberry and Mushroom farm which you can visit!

Genting Travelogue: Day 2

Day 2 of Genting was the most happening day for us all!

(Before heading out to meet the rest!)

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!

Genting Travelogue: Day 1

Hi all!

I’m here to blog about Day 1 of my Genting Travelogue! It’s mainly about food and the hotel!! Hehe.

So we reached Genting at around 12 pm plus if i’m not wrong? After like 5 hours plus of coach ride. Then we head to check in and have to wait awhile at the Lobby cafe while they are getting our rooms prepared. I would say the wait is worthwhile as the room is love!

Got my room card! Our rooms are located at level 27, the second highest level in Genting. Room no is 27 949 which is located at a straight walk from the lift lobby! 😛

The room we are staying at is the World Club Room at First World Hotel. It’s one of the more deluxe room over at First World and cost roughly around RM300+++ per night depending on the period. It has a lounge area with a sofa, a dressing area, 2 single beds, TV, mini fridge and an awesome bathroom with standing shower and bathtub!

The bathtub comes with an awesome view of Genting! That’s why I say the location of my room is great! Imagine taking a hot bath and looking out at the pretty awesome view of Genting. I’ve no photos of the night view, but here’s one I took in the morning.

From my room, I pretty much get an overview of the whole of Genting which is awesome to look at when you wake up early in the morning. XD

Here’s my mum taking a rest on the comfy bed while I was taking photos of the room! Mum loves the room! I would say that hotel rooms are one of the most important factors for a trip! Though we spent most of our time outside shopping, eating etc, it would be lovely to come back to a nice and comfortable room for a night’s rest after a long day out there! And I’m really happy to be able to come back to such a comfy room during the 2 nights stay in Genting!

Hence, I really highly recommend you to stay in the World Club Room at First World when you go to Genting!! I know that is definitely my first choice if I visit Genting next time!

After resting for awhile at our rooms, it’s lunch time at Ming Ren Restaurant! We were all hungry after the long coach ride and can’t wait for lunch!

Here’s the menu for lunch! It’s a eleven course meal!! Eat till you drop! 😛

Taking photos while waiting for the food to arrive!

We were served the soup first and it’s the Boiled Yam and Papaya soup! The yam and papaya are cooked till it’s really soft and easy to eat! The soup is very flavorful! It’s one of my top favorites!

Here we have the special XinJiang rice which is really good, along with the fried bean curd which is crisp on the outside and soft inside.

Ming Ren Restaurant specialized in lamb dishes and we get to try 2 of them! The Lamb Skewer and Roasted Lamb Leg. The Lamb Skewer taste a little like our satay with different spices. The Wasabi Prawns is not too spicy and actually goes well with the dragon fruit. The XinJiang Ice cream served is actually made with lamb oil and has a unique taste to it. It actually taste more like Iced cream rather than Ice cream. 😛

Eat all the lamb! I prefer the Lamb Skewer to the Roaster Lamb Leg as it’s more tender! XD

After lunch, it’s free and easy time! Shine, Miyo, me plus our mums decided to walk around Genting together. By then, it’s already quite foggy outside and the weather is superbly cooling! I seriously do miss Genting’s weather! It’s totally awesome!

The three of us taking photos while waiting for our mums to shop! We basically shopped around the mall where the Indoor theme park is. It’s quite fun to be shopping while looking at the rides passing by.

Time flies and soon it’s dinner time at the Imperial Genting Palace! What’s waiting for us was an awesome meal. This dinner was probably my best meal in Genting!

Spare Ribs, Oysters, Fish Rolls, Prawns and a special breed Dragon Tiger Grouper!

I loved the Baked Fresh Oysters with Cheese! It’s juicy and flavorful!!

Here we have is the Doubled Boiled Minced Quail Ball with Assorted Fungus. This post itself cost around Rm120! It’s a pot of soup with goodness! There’s all sorts of fungus and dried scallops. Main point is the Minced Quail Ball which is super tender and juicy!

We also had Yam Chicken Rice and a very refreshing dessert, the Moisten Snow Pear with Preserved Date. I like how it’s not too sweet and yet cooling and refreshing!

My Mum loves fish and she all she had was good praises for the Dragon Tiger Grouper! I totally agreed that the fish is awesome! It’s meat is tender and sweet, super fresh too!

Did I mentioned that the Executive Chef was with us during the dinner? Though I wasn’t sitting at the same table as him, but I did overhear him sharing about the dishes with the others! XD I’m pretty sure all our mums enjoyed the meal, look at their happy faces!

After dinner, the mum and me took a walk around before returning to our room! I had an warm bath in the bathtub, enjoying the view before heading to bed. That’s how life should be.

Look at the smile on The Mum, I’m satisfied seeing that.

Very thankful to OMY.SG and Resorts World Genting!

Look out for Day 2 and 3! XD

XOXO,

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 :

Miyo – http://www.miyomomo.com/

Melissa – http://melicacy.com/

Shine – http://www.shinekoh.com/

Grace – http://gracevion.blogspot.com/

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,
