Genting Highlands 2D1N

Arrrhhh~~~ finally I had a vacation for myself! Eventhough is short one, but is enough for me to relax myself for a while. Me and my girl traveled seperately from my family, we traveled to Genting by bus from Terminal Putra to Awana Genting and rode Genting Skyway to the top of the hill while my family went there by car. It was Sunday, so I'd expected it will be a lot of people going to Genting. However, this is really far worst than I expected!

When I reached the Awana and got myself to the top floor where the Skyway depart area is, The queue to ride the skyway was really very long!! Did not take photos of the initial state when I first got up there because I thought it should maybe a normal case for peak period like Sunday. 10 minutes later, when I turned back and look at the line behind, it was getting longer longer and longer, the queue even had to be extended.

Extended Queuing Area

Just when I thought this was bad enough, I really had to think twice when I looked at the queue another 10-15 minutes later. The newly extended area almost going to filled up!

Queued for around 30 minutes and finally got ourselves up on the skyway and continue our journey to the hill.

See ya on top of the hill! Whahah!

The weather there really wasn't what I expected. Not misty AT ALL. Beginning to get disappointed actually when see the weather like that. Anyway, after reached Genting, my girl went to find her friend while I head on to the First World Lobby to meet my family as well as to claim my room. Holly COW! The number of people there really was sickening! Never really expect That Many people on a Sunday at the lobby getting their room!

Waited quite some time for my turn to be served. Though got a bit of problem on the reservations, still we managed to get what we initially booked. So we got our rooms at the new Tower 2 but seperate floor. After settling down everything, take shower and stuffs, all of us went for Karaoke session, K session at Genting? Not really I wanted but anyway, the dinner there might be cheaper than any other places at Genting and with singing facilities also a chance for my parents to experience the K environment. After the K session, we headed on to casino of course (that's what Genting are for anyway, lolz). Spent quite long there and manage to win just a little bit only.

Next morning, woke up quite late. Done all the washing and packing. Get out from the room and threw the keys into the key deposit box. Went to look for food. Half way looking for the food I suddenly wanted to feel the outside breeze because somehow I felt the weather was quite cool out there. When I approached the Flying Coaster's escalator, HOLY COW x 2! Initially I thought the weather wasn't as I expected, but I seriously had to think again when I see this!

Damn Thick Mist

API less than 500m, lolz

Now that's what I call Genting! It was extremely cool outthere and it was really what I wanted! Very satisfied indeed and felt so good after enjoying the cool breeze there~ Really wonder what if this is the thickness of the haze in Malaysia, really would be a disaster....

Came back down at around 2pm, was quite dangerous on the way down because of the thick mist, but..yeah, arrived home safely and man! never thought that I would be so tired after reaching home! Though is tired but did indeed gave myself some moment to rest and not thinking anything. Now, have to again back to the reality world!

P/s: on the same day itself after i got back from Genting, got call from Timothy with a great surprise!! hahhahaha!! Jual mahal dulu, few days later only will blog about it:p

last time the Genting was like a very happening and happy place for me, whenever i had a chance to go there i will be damn happy and excited! but now things had changed, not as excited as before, to me now is just a place to relax, not anything else…maybe because i m not a kid anymore? 😛
