Genting Highlands: Day 2 + 3

sponsored advertorial

i'm back with Part 2 of my Genting Highlands trip, and you should read Part 1 HERE, if you haven't read it yet!

starting off the entry with a nice and big picture of myself mwahahahaha.

woke up bright and early on Day 2, and i was SOoo excited, because we were heading to the Theme Park!! yay! the last time i was at Genting Highlands, i gave the theme park a miss because the weather was too foggy, and no one else wanted to go with me :X

we started off with a hearty breakfast, settled at The Bakery,
located on the Lobby Floor, Maxims Genting!

PS. The Bakery also has free Wi-Fi! awesome for those who don't have 3G/data plan!

love my colorful and happy looking outfit, i picked it specially for the theme park! romper for easy movement, and a cardigan just in case it's cold on the rides.

Rachell and Sarah XD

we were superrrr greedy and everything just looked SO GOOD!!! they had a really wide selection, from pastries, to cakes, to sandwiches, to doughnuts, and more! so we practically chose one of each hahaha :X a good breakfast starts the day right!


yayyyy! couldn't wait to start tucking into breakfast already ^^ BUT BEFORE WE COULD EAT, everyone started whipping out camera(s) and taking pictures of all the food!! superstars of our breakfast.

LOOK AT OUR TABLE. are you feeling hungry yet!

posing with the tableful of food! XD four happy campers eager for breakfast!

yummy quiche!

some very awesome croissant with cheese on top and seafood inside!

MY FAVOURITE. a flaky almond croissant that was damn yummy!!!

pistacho doughtnut!


what a spread... we ate ourselves silly, and everything tasted so good! must must must go to The Bakery for breakfast if you're at Genting Highlands! highly recommended!

they even had macarons! :D

irresistably pretty and yummy!!! i don't know what's the appeal with macarons, but EVERYONE LOVES THEM. O_O we all posted shots of macarons and ourselves with macarons on Instagram, lol. got mad alot of likes for the macaron photos! (how sad. more than an Instagram of my own face usually gets. why are people so critical and judgemental of looks but not macarons?)

after such a satisfyingly scrumptious breakfast, it was time for the theme park! :D major excitement! i love theme parks, but i'm quite afraid of the more scary rides :X

outside the Genting Outdoor Theme Park!

it costs 66RM for an Adult One Day Unlimited Ride Pass! gives you access to everything, including the Outdoor Theme Park, First World Indoor Theme Park, Rainforest Splash Pool and Flying Coaster  :D

everyone's favourite ride, the colorful Spinner! wheee! the first ride we went on :D it looks quite mild, but once you're up on the air, it is really fun and thrilling!!! love the feeling of the wind blowing in my face, and the up and down motion of the spinner as it turns round and round!

we didn't go on the Merry Go Round, but camwhored in front of it :P it's so pretty!!!

didn't take that many pictures inside the theme park, cos we kept our stuff in the lockers there while we went on rides! 

those big and pink seadragon plushies are sooooo cuteeee.

but my favourite is this GIANT teddy bear!!! it's as big as me! nah, didn't try to win it :X 

little kids playing with their balloon sculptures!

there are clowns throughout the theme park, amusing all the little kids with tricks and balloon animals! i personally find clowns quite freaky, anyway. YZ's little nephew was almost scared to tears by the clowns when he went to Genting with us earlier this year haha! 


THE MOST EXCITING AND FUNNEST RIDE (in my opinion) in the theme park!!!! actually, there are other very thrilling rides too, like the Corkscrew and the Space Shot (the one that goes up a tower and drops down vertically!!! i cannot, my heart cannot tahan this kind of ride) but this ride is kind of my limit already hahaha


according to Resorts World Genting website, it lifts up to 20 meters high and flies over 391 meters with a maximum speed of 25.7mph! they didn't mention that it does TWO 360 degrees turn too... D:

conquered the ride woohoooooo!!!!! the scariest part was actually when we were secured on the ride seats already, waiting to be brought up. it's damn scary cos we were standing vertically while "locked" in the seat, and it feels damn unstable!!! sweaty palms gripping the hand holds, bare feet on the cold metal support. O_O and when the ride started moving, we all started going like "WHY ARE WE DOING THIS TO OURSELVES??? OMG WE ARE GOING TO DIE OMG"


but after we came down from the ride, all yaya papaya already hahahaha the ride itself was actually damn fun and exhilarating! :D :D :D

all the cold air made us hungry again D: and it was time for lunch too! we decided upon lunch at Happy Valley Seafood Restaurant, which is located right next to the theme park! at the lobby of Theme Park Hotel! :D

their speciality is SEA FOOD!!! couldn't wait to order already... so famished after all the thrills and excitement!

first, some fruit juice to re-hydrate and quench our thirst! :D

while waiting for food. HUNGRY FACE.

and with Rachell!! love her camera man. damn good for camwhoring!

simple stir-fried veggies!

salted fish bean sprouts~

very yummy! drunken prawn soup!! the prawns were huge and fresh! :D :D :D

crispy tofu!

and the STAR of our lunch: Salted Egg Yolk Crabs!!!! *salivates*

mad yummy can??? as you can tell, we didn't even take any pictures of us eating, cos once the food came, we were all so hungry we just started tucking in right away!!!

we walked around First World Plaza abit.. but we didn't shop much, the only thing i bought were contact lenses, they're cheaper over there and there are some brands that aren't available locally!
one of the lenses that i bought from SaSa! Rainbow Color lens! :D :D :D

we popped by Famous Amos to buy cookies too! they're cheaper there and still as yummy!

random shots while on the escalator!

we went back to our hotel room to rest and let our food digest for abit, i was uploading photos straight into my iPad and playing with photo apps to edit them! 

and because we loooove M Spa so much, we booked another appointment to go down to the spa again!! *bliss*
this time round, i did a chocolate wrap, followed by the Balinese massage again!

Chocolate Wrap 
Signature Treatment 
 Our signature Chocolate Wrap is a treat for the senses, It features combination chocolate mask that nourishes the skin for a detoxifying and anti-cellulite effect.

Balinese Massage
The long, firm and kneading strokes using the palm and lower hand pressure offers a deep and therapeutic massage. This technique originates from the island of Bali where it is done to relieve muscular strain, headaches and frayed nerves. Essential oils made from selected ingredients add to the healing effect. Highly recommended – an ideal enhancement to a body scrub 

Massage pressure – firm to deep and soothing

the chocolate wrap felt so luxurious! a warm chocolate mask that smells heavenly is gently smoothed onto your entire body by the therapist, and then you're all wrapped up like a mummy while the mask works its magic! there's an electric hot blanket on the mattress as well, and the entire process was so comfortable and soothing, i fell right asleep and probably started snoring too! :X what a treat!

after that, i was asked to rinse off with a shower, followed by the Balinese massage, which was just as good as it felt the previous day. ahhh... can never get enough of massages and spas! two consecutive days of spa session, just too blissful for words!

Sarah and i had a good soak in the jacuzzi afterwards, it felt so good! there's a hot pool and a cold pool, when you dip into both pools one after the other, it feels extra shiok!!! i just wanted to stay in the pool forever!

are you ready for a half naked photo HAHAHAHA ok just kidding we are all decent, can't see anything!

happy as ducks in water!

after the pampering session, it was time for food, yes, again!!! such a satisfying trip, with soooo much food! was uber happy about it!
and this restaurant is also HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended to dine at when you visit Genting Highlands... it's a MUST!

Imperial Rama, at Level 2, Highlands Hotel!
by the way, remember to make reservations beforehand to ensure you get a table!

Imperial Rama serves Thai-Chinese cuisine in fine dining style, and we were REALLY blown away! from the amazing food and the great ambience, to the impeccable service!

finally... our chance to eat 好料: 鲍鱼鱼翅!!! 

even our watermelon juice also look so good.

we ordered two set courses to share, and a variety of other dishes! none of the dishes disappointed us at all, i swear every dish was fantastic!

King Prawn done up in two ways: one is with cheese, and the other is with salted egg yolk! it was delicious!!!

we ordered this butter milk chicken which was super yummy as well, with crispy bits that tasted like oatmeal!

DENG DENG DENG. our stewed shark's fin in shark bone soup! the soup stock was SO good! damn rich and tasty omg!

stir-fied veggies! the most "normal" of all the dishes. but still good :D

one of my favorites: Muar Otah!! i looooove Otah and it was extremely tasty! think i ate the most out of the four girls :X

highlight of the entire trip!!! GOT TO EAT ABALONE!!! the most delicious braised WHOLE abalone with dried seafood noodle! each of us ate half an abalone, bwahaha. and it tastes much better than canned abalone. it's so juicy and tender!! damn good!

group shot of us with the food! :D is happy de.

by the way, you have got to give their special desserts a try too, cos they are really unique and extremely yummy!

banana pancake! sweet banana inside a pancake, super noms. but the next dish blew us away! D:

DURIAN TEMPURA. and i don't even like durian!

i don't know how they do it: it's deep fried durian puree in batter and the durian is super creamy and sweet and not smelly at all. i swear.

best meal of the trip. you must eat at Imperial Rama! it's a MUST.

the last thing we did on Day 2 was to go to the KTV! it's located at First World Plaza, Level 2B, right upstairs the bowling alley! quite cheap too, but i forgot exactly how much. comes with two bottles of free mineral water!! haha.

the system was ok lah, not very good, but still shiok enough to sing! but the rest of the girls didn't sing much, except for Zoe and myself! Rachell fell asleep halfway somemore lor. HAHAHA. too tired after the full day's activities!

Rachell took this picture of me, looking very 投入 in my singing :P ok i know i look retarded. FINE.

we went back to our hotel rooms to retire for the day so we could wake up early for our last morning in Genting! :( the 3D2N really flew past in a whiz, and it was already the last day before we realised it.


woke up and we spent some time packing our luggage, and then went down for dimsum breakfast at 好友记, Good Friends Restaurant, located at Level 2 Highlands Hotel!

Zoe helping to serve tea for everybody!

we ordered tons and tons of food, as usual :S last morning already! :(

the first piping hot basket to arrive: Salted Egg Yolk Custard Buns!!!!

waaaaaa i love the hot custard oozing out damn shiok! we ordered another two baskets of this cos it was so yummy!

siew mai~

chee cheong fan, another of my favorite!

mini egg tartlets, carrot cake, charsiew pastry!

腐皮卷 i think!


our very last meal in Genting! :(

i was quite sad that the 3 days passed by so quickly, actually! i had alot of fun, all thanks to the three other girls, Zoe, Rachell and Sarah who were such great travel companions! i'm glad we had the chance to spend time together and get to know one another better on this trip!
THANK YOU SO MUCH GIRLS. thank you for the real fun trip!!! thanks to you three for re-discovering Genting Highlands with me, and enjoying all the good food, thrilling rides, and spa pampering! thanks for all the funny nights of the four of us sharing two single beds together, and masking together, and listening to all of you snore :P

to Zoe, thank you my Team Heroine partner for taking care of all the logistics and being the "tour guide" of the trip! poor girl couldn't even rest on the coach ride home because a couple in our group left their passports back at First World Hotel, and she had to take charge of the situation! thanks for being the most auntie of the lot, always fussing over us to HURRY UP and go heehee.

to Rachell, the one who packed for a 3D2N trip as if she's heading on a 1 month tour around Europe, thank you for providing us with masks every night, and also lugging around a huge bag of makeup everyday that we all borrowed from to touch up! it was great fun having you around, with your funny sharing of stories and experiences. am glad to get to know you better! thank you!!!

to Sarah, our most talented baker and photographer, thank you for always accommodating and offering to man the camera for us girls who couldn't stop camwhoring! :P your pictures are gorgeous and you are such a lovely person! can't wait to attend your baking class very soon! i want to make a pretty strawberry shortcake, or maybe a rainbow cake, can?? :D

thank you to Resorts World Genting and Nuffnang for making this trip happen too! there were so many things we didn't manage to do in this short 3D2N, i'm sure the next time i'm back in Genting, i'll be able to experience more things and also eat more good food too! bwahaha. it was truly an unforgettable trip!
