Two days one night stay @ Genting Highlands

28 Jan

Went there at 14th Jan. Supposed to be a three days two night trip but because of some stuffs we went back home one day early. Another reason was I had school on Monday and it will be a real hurry from GH to my school.

I never took pictures during the whole trip so sorry to my readers lah. This post will just be a shitty load of words and stuffs.

In the car getting ready to go. It’s the umpteenth time I’ve been there so there’s nothing to be happy and fuss about. Just ate fruits in the car for lunch (very kesian.) Reached there at about 4pm. Took my luggage and our colony of weaver ants out. My sister and I planned to let it free here.

We booked a hotel at Maxims Genting. We thought it’s a suite but it’s not. It’s just a premier room. Genting would not be so ‘generous’ to give you a suite because it’s just a complimentary hotel room. And also there’s no breakfast much to my father’s distaste.

There were two single beds and a 42 inch plasma TV in the hotel room. It’s not that grand but it’s okay for a hotel room at Genting. There’s no more ‘Genting Hotels’ as all the rooms at the ‘Genting’ building were now called ‘Maxims’.

It’s the Taiwan Election Day so we switched on the TV to watch the results. There’s one Taiwan channel that broadcast the poll results and news related to it.  The fight between Ma Ying-jeou and Tsai ing-wen were very sengit as their votes were very close. As everyone knows, Ma Ying-jeou won and serve for another term at office as president for Taiwan.

After that, my sister and I went for swimming at the indoor heated  pool near the indoor theme park. We were told that there’s only 30 minutes left for the opening hours. We were not affected by that as I never swam for a looooong time. I had a great time there and learned some techniques for swimming with your head out the water. (WHAT’S IT CALLED?)

Went back to hotel room and watched NatGeo channel, Discovery channel, Wah Loi Toi and many other channels like hell. HOW I LOVE ASTRO CHANNELS!!! My house never subscribed to Astro and I only get to watch them once in a blue moon. I ♥ them! My #addiction.

It’s time for dinner and we went to the Kopitiam (Food Court) at third floor of first world plaza. My sister and I ordered a Tom Yam soup noodles from the Chinese stall. It’s awesome and recommended for those who hadn’t ate for a day because there were many noodles + seafood (prawns, squid) + meat (chicken) + vege + many other shit, I mean food. Very worth it. (But I could not finish it. TOO MANY. T.T)

Wanted to watch movie but doesn’t feel like it so we just went back to the hotel room to sleep.

Woke up early the next day. Went to the door to see if there’s any newspaper hanging outside. When I took it and saw it’s Sin Chew Jit Poh, I screamed in delight in my heart. After putting down the newspaper, I went back to sleep. Woke up again at about 10.30am. Read the newspaper and watched television.

So boring. And we’re going back today. WHAT CAN I SAY LEH?


Fine. After packed all the stuffs and thrown them in the car, we went outside to have a walk. It’s so darn cold and I kept myself warm by breathing with both of my hands covered at my mouth. My father kept laughing and laughing at me and said that this temperature cannot compare with the one at China.

Fine. I was numb from head to toe that time so the coldness I’m feeling now was the same in China. I don’t know why – but it’s just the same. 19 degrees or -30 degrees.

My sister said she breathed mist but I don’t believe it. We humans only breath mist at 1 or 2 degrees Celsius, right? But when I see her breath from a different angle, I SAW MIST CAME OUT FROM HER MOUTH. wth? An unsolved mystery.

We delayed so much time and we only go back to KL during the night because we were watching TV. I love the ‘How Evil Are You?’ show by Discovery Channel. See you, Astro.
