Weekend Getaway to Genting Highlands!

Hi Loves!

I’m back again! 😀

Yesterday I posted about my review of Aaron Crow’s Fearless Magic show, the highlight of my recent weekend trip to Genting Highlands. Today I’ll be posting about the rest of the trip and cover everything else we did! It’s gonna be super image heavy! 😛Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0000Traveling with my sis for this trip! On the coach~

We reached the hotel early in the morning around 5am, caught some sleep before we headed out around 10+am~

Checked out Terminal 2 cafe just at the lobby of  XYZ wing.

Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0004They had nice bread, but servings were huge. We didn’t want to be too full as we were expecting a buffet lunch at Coffee Terrace~

Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0002Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0003 So I snapped a few photos and we headed to check out other food places.

Like 1 Meter Teh!

The porridge smelled amazing, so we decided to get a bowl to share…Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0007Teh & Chicken Porridge. Honestly the porridge was so-so, it was the fried onion that made it smell heavenly and taste good! 

Then it was time for buffet lunch!!!

Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0008Once again, our SOP – array of cuisine on our table! 😀

Close ups of the delicious food… Once again, the buffet did not disappoint, both in quality and quantity. 😛

This time round, I explored the Coffee Terrace place with Chiu Yen and sis and found this sightseeing spot:

Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0014 Enabalista Media Review Resorts World Genting March 2016_0015You can pay to view further… but I didn’t la. Haha.

Then I was trying to practise selfies/wefies on my new Canon G7 camera…

Enabalista Resorts World Genting Review_0000Apparently my sis is a pro at it! 😛
Enabalista Resorts World Genting Review_0001Here’s one of me after a few takes. But as you can see, I can’t seem to take on with one hand only… I need more practice. Haha.

Next we headed to Snow World!!! I know I sound super excited now, when I was initially not. But I unexpectedly had a lot of fun for what was supposed to be for kids/children, hahaha. All you need to have fun, is to have a child’s heart! 😛
Snow World Resorts World Genting Review March 2016_0000 Snow World Resorts World Genting Review March 2016_0001We went just shortly after Easter, so it was Easter themed! 

Snow World Resorts World Genting Review March 2016_0002The Dress Up Corner where we changed into our jackets and shoes.

Snow World Resorts World Genting Review March 2016_0003Here’s one with the group before going in! The plan was to take 5-10 min before it was open to public, to snap some photos before we can have fun after! Photos and cameras are not allowed (except for media) inside Snow World as they have professional photographers inside and will charge you for photos, should you want.
Snow World Resorts World Genting Review March 2016_0004Super cute Easter eggs and sweets decor~

After this we couldn’t snap photos when the Snow World opened to public and we kept our cameras away, but I did get to seat the slide which is only for people before 65kg, and we also played with the red sledges and it was a lot of fun! It’s those kiddy level kind of intensity which is just perfect for me because I don’t like scary rides, hahaha.Snow World Resorts World Genting Review March 2016_0010Group we-fie outside Snow World~

Snow World Resorts World Genting Review March 2016_0011And another!

After Snow World, we went to catch the Fearless Magic Show, which I’ve already covered in the previous post. After the show, we had dinner at Bubbles & Bites!

The name Bubbles & Bites originates from the fact that the restaurant serves simple western food with an exquisite list of drinks―including sparkling wines imported from such countries as Italy, Spain and France. Hence the word“Bubbles.”  True to its name, Bubbles & Bites makes the perfect chillout place for effervescent young people, families and all others who believe great food and good ambience go hand in hand.

Let’s check out the place!

After dinner, Eric arranged for us to feast on Gelatos! The server reallyyy packed in a ton of Gelatos for us in this bowl. We went with Hazenut, Mango, Chocolate and Blood Orange flavors.

After desserts, we had free and easy time… My sis and went walking around the Plaza Square, there was a Japanese fair going on… It was inspired by the hanami/pink blossoms season.Enabalista Genting Highlands Blog Review March 2016_0001 Enabalista Genting Highlands Blog Review March 2016_0002 Enabalista Genting Highlands Blog Review March 2016_0004

After some shopping, we joined William, Leong, Gerald, Lenice and Jocelyn at K Studio for some Karaoke!

I thought this was it. T_T I think it’s about RM80 per hour.

We all had a lot of fun singing both chinese and english songs, I did wish the walls weren’t so thin / better cushioned as we could totally hear what the next room was singing! LOL.

After the K-session, sis and I headed back to our room to rest! It was 3am by the time we prepped for bed and slept.

The next morning we checked out some of the art at the lobby and I took shots for my OOTDS before we headed for breakfast at Food Factory! 🙂

Fun & Exciting Weekend at Genting

Hi Loves!

A few weeks back, I travelled to Genting with a group of bloggers and friends. Although we didn’t know each other (except for our plus ones of course), we got to know each other better through the trip and had a blast! We had so much fun that by the end of the trip, I really didn’t want it to end~

There’s going to be so many exciting developments taking place in Genting! A new premium outlet mall is slated to open in mid 2016. 20th Century Fox Theme Park which will be completed in phases, will open by the end 2016. And that’s not it! There’ll also be a Sky Avenue Mall, Sky Plaza & a new cable car system which will connect First World Hotel & the new premium outlet mall. Which only means we totally have to go and check it out when they’re open!!! By then, spending 1 weekend at Genting will not be enough, you’ll need at least 3 days or more. In the meanwhile, read on and find out what we did during our recent trip, so you can get some ideas if you’re planning to head down soon!

The bloggers and I headed to Genting via coach. We met up at Boon Lay shopping centre for the coach ride:
RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 001 RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 002There are a few coach providers, we travelled with The One. I must say that their buses (to and fro) and bus drivers were very good, so I would recommend them. Bus tickets are about S$80-90 for round trip. We took the night coach which departed at 10pm and we reached Genting around 4.30am.

We were welcomed by the RWGenting team when we reached Genting and were directed to our hotel rooms at the newest wing, aka Tower 3, XYZ deluxe rooms. Here’s how the lobby looks like!
First World Hotel XYZ Deluxe Room RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 012Tower 3 lobby.
First World Hotel XYZ Deluxe Room RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 013Terminal 2 cafe located at the ground floor of Tower 3.First World Hotel XYZ Deluxe Room RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 014Plenty of seating spaces at Tower 3 lobby. I like the modern graphic interior design & use of fresh colours. First World Hotel XYZ Deluxe Room RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 015Even more spaces, yes it’s a huge lobby, but even then I think it’s still not as big as the main First World Hotel lobby.
First World Hotel XYZ Deluxe Room RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 016Automatic check out stations.First World Hotel XYZ Deluxe Room RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 011Our rooms are located on the 25th floor. Even though there are 6 lifts, it still takes a long time (15min) for the lift to reach our floor especially during peak hours from 10-11am, which is around check out timing. So plan your time in advance to give allowance for the lifts. 🙂First World Hotel XYZ Deluxe Room RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 001First World Hotel XYZ Deluxe Room RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 002Our XYZ Deluxe Room! I like the modern, simple yet chic interior design and the comfy bed & linens. However there’s no wifi in the rooms. A quick check with the RWGenting team reveals that they have already feedback to the management but it is still not confirmed if and when wifi will be provided in the rooms. If you need wifi, it is available at the lobby, as well as at cafes like Starbucks & The Bakery. You should also bring your own toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo) as they are not provided for. Should you forget, you can also buy from stores like Watsons nearby.First World Hotel XYZ Deluxe Room RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 003After a few more hours of rest, we got ready for our brunch! Here’s the morning view from our #25 floor lift lobby. Am using the miniature lens effect of Casio TR60 camera.

We started our day with brunch at Coffee Terrace, for their lunch buffet. We were allowed in earlier than the public crowd (yay to media perks!).

At the Coffee Terrace, you can savour dishes from the Local, Flavors of Malaysia, Chinese, Western, Japanese & Western Asian counters (Last two counters opens only for dinners). There are also very good varieties of appetizer, salads and desserts on the buffet spread.

We decided that we will each take food from the various counters and combine them on the table. This fantastic idea was suggested by Chiu Yen, who has a lot of buffet experience! Most of us were full from this spread, we didn’t have to go for round 2… Well, only except to get ice cream!:Coffee Terrace Lunch Buffet RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 007Ice cream and sorbets in chocolate, raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, orange and lemon flavours. It’s hard to decide, but my favorites are the lemon & blueberry flavours.

I’d recommend this spot for buffet lunch if you’re visiting Genting!

After a very hearty lunch buffet, we headed to Chin Swee Caves Temple. The Chin Swee Caves Temple is situated in the most scenic site of Genting Highlands. Even if you are not a devotee, like myself, you will still enjoy this cultural experience. Within the temple is the statue of Reverend Master Chin Swee, who is also referred to as a deity in Fujian Province for his supernatural abilities to summon rain and drive away evil spirits. Located 4,600 feet above sea level, the temple is about 5-10 minutes drive down from the peak of the mountain. The temple attracts many local and foreign devotees as well as tourists.

Chin Swee Caves Temple Visit RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 023Irene explaining the history of Chin Swee Cave Temple.  The story goes that the Genting Group founder Tan Sri Dato Seri (Dr) Lim Goh Tong had a dream while visiting the area and Reverend Master Chin Swee aka Chin Swee Deity appeared in his dream and blessed him, so Dato Lim donated this plot of land and built the Chin Swee Temple. Also, the face of Deity Chin Swee is black because he fought the evil spirits and escaped but resulted with a black face. Chin Swee Caves Temple Visit RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 024Chin Swee Caves Temple Visit RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 022Chin Swee Caves Temple Visit RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 021Chin Swee Caves Temple Visit RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 020Chin Swee Caves Temple Visit RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 003The temple’s relief wall and pillar art works are very beautiful and intricate.

The statues torturing people are actually very very graphic, vivid and grotesque so I will spare all of my lovely readers and not post them on my blog. Well, actually I didn’t even want the photos on my camera, so I didn’t take photos of them, hahaha. I respect the buddhist religion and teachings, but I sure am glad that I believe in Jesus and I know that I am spared from hell! 🙂

After the temple visit, we headed back to First World hotel for Ed Alonzo’s Psycho Circus of Magic & Mayhem!
Ed Alonzo Psycho Circus RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 003We were early, so we settled down, finished our water from these cute bottles and did some IG postings while waiting for the show to start. ^^
Ed Alonzo Psycho Circus RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 002I won’t give a blow by blow account of what goes down in the show, I’ll just share some of the exciting parts!
Ed Alonzo Psycho Circus RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 005The show starts with a dance and there will be many along the way. As the title of the show goes, it’s a Psycho Circus of Magic & Mayhem, so you never really know what to expect and there are many surprises along the way. So it’s exciting to seat, watch and wonder what is the next crazy thing to expect!
Ed Alonzo Psycho Circus RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 006Crazy things like this magic act of swopping out the dancer in the plastic wrappings to the little boy from the audience. You can watch the snippet in my video which I will embed at the end of this post!Ed Alonzo Psycho Circus RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 007And crazy acts like Ed Alonzo disappearing from the stage and immediately reappearing in the middle of the audience, which is the exact  row where I/we were seated!!
Ed Alonzo Psycho Circus RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 008And this part was particularly hilarious, Alonzo got a man from the audience and proceeded to burst balloons located all around him. He used a knife to burst the last balloon below his crotch!

We also watched Loughron James Stephen Leslie, a contortionist who also swallow swords from Austrialia, doing BOTH at the same time. CRAZYYY I TELL YOU. Ed Alonzo Psycho Circus RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 009Ed Alonzo Psycho Circus RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 010Ed Alonzo Psycho Circus RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 011Ed Alonzo Psycho Circus RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 012We also watched Ed Alonzo in many outfit changes and performing many magic acts with animals, in this case with rabbits. There was also a bird and a very cute dog.Ed Alonzo Psycho Circus RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 013There’s also Toru Sato from Japan eating & playing with fire – he definitely didn’t listen, or his mother never told him to “not play with fire”! 😛 Ed Alonzo Psycho Circus RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 014With Ed Alonzo, the lovely dancers & Sato. Seems like contortionist Leslie is too cool for photos with the audience. 😛

We also watched a few videos about the exciting developments, one of them is this video about Sky Avenue:

The stunning new Sky Avenue is nestled right in the heart of the refreshed Resorts World Genting, with easy access from all adjoining hotels and leisure attractions. This brand new centre offers a complete and balanced retail mix with 165 retail and F&B lots ranging from 500 sq ft to 15,700 sq ft.

There are more than 40 Retail and 25 F&B outlets plus attractions for all ages!

After shopping & chilling at Starbucks, we headed back to our hotel room to drop our stuff before heading out again to check out the Casino! (No photos allowed in the Casino)

It was my first time to a Casino on land (cause I went to the cruise one before, but that was just to check out my friend’s grandma and speak to her momentarily before we went elsewhere) and at the Genting casino, it was really crazy watching all the money that the gamblers were putting on the tables and the dealers counting the notes and stuffing them into the table, by the thousands(!). I mean, ok, I must sound like a sua ku (mountain turtle, lol) but it was eye opening for me ok? 😛 For more information about Genting Casinos, check out here. I don’t recommend nor endorse gambling, unless you have a lot of money to burn. 😛

ITALGElato is Resorts World Genting’s in house original gelato brand, which makes them the only resort with such a claim. Edward Holloway, the resort’s Senior Vice President of Hotel Operations first came up with the idea of the resort’s own ice cream brand. It started as his team and him were brainstorming concepts for the new theme park and researching how to achieve a perfect Italian gelato in Malaysia. The innovation team then dived into the processes and came up with ITALGElato. The first stall was started for fun during the school holidays and they now have 4 stores and growing. The booth we visited is at Genting First World Lobby area.
Italgelato Gelato Ice Cream RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 001There are 21 flavours available.Italgelato Gelato Ice Cream RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 014I love the red velvet flavour, it’s tastes like the red velvet cake but in ice cream. 🙂Italgelato Gelato Ice Cream RWGenting Weekend Trip Blogger Review 013The must try signature flavours are Dark Chocolate & Orange Cheese Cake.
