Uncle Lim's Wonderland

DURING the Raya break, my family and I together with Ning decided to go to Genting Highlands since it' has been a long time we went up there. Also Jenny and Joseph will be checking-in on that day. We could meet up for a while up there.

We departed at eight in the morning.

On the way up, we stopped by at Gohtong Jaya to visit Lim Goh Tong's memorial. Uncle Lim was the founder of Genting by the way. His passing two years ago was a great lost to many.

All crafted out of wood (except the flowers)

Amazing isn't it?

This is, my lovely sister

My birthday (is coming) = his death

His eyes are so REAL

Ning, the orchid girl

Dad asked if we wanted to take the cable car ride up but we didn't so we went straight up to the peak by car. On the halfway we stopped at the Chin Swee Temple for a walk and some photo shooting.

The moment we got down the car, I could feel the cool wind blowing towards us eventhough the sun was shinning at us.

The view was breathtaking

That is what I like about being up on Genting.

I never really visited this place before although it is one of the attraction in Genting
Luckily I brought along my binoculars. I could see KL!
And even some apartments nearby my house.

Mammi and Mei mei

After visiting the temple, we continued up to the top. We parked at the open car park area near to First World Hotel and had our breakfast there. =)

The Ria Apartment. Used to stayed here with friends and 
heard many spooky stories happened here

Foggy weather. I like

Early in the morning, mum prepared mayonaise egg
and sambal ikan bilis together with rice

For the first time we utilised the picnic table stored in the boot of dad's car

It was a school holiday and there was a lot of people on Genting. We didn't intend to play in the theme park so we just walked around and to enjoy the cool breeze.

Dad looking at the model of Genting in First World Hotel

Some shots of the model:

Whoa! Check out the most expensive rate!

I brought Ning into the Starworld casino at the First World Hotel. We didn't play cuz we didn't know how to and more importantly we don't have 'the enough cash'. Haha. Inside there, I saw people throwing out cash RM5000 just like that and a while later, there are gone just like that. *snap finger*

Some outdoor pictures:

Mum, sis and dad

We didn't enter the theme park. Took this before the entrance gate

The all-time favourite, Space Shot

I remember my first time riding that when I went there with my family and relatives. I couldn't remember why I wanted to try that but I did ride on it, alone. At that time, the whole thing would shoot you up from the bottom instead of dropping at the top.

The Awana Skyway

Highland Hotel. Heard got many 'business' there? *ehem*

This is the Visitor Galleria where many things about Genting are being displayed here

There is another set of huge Genting model.
I like models

The Genting Skyway covered with silver

Dad contacted his friend who was on Genting at that time. He said that he might able to get a free room for us but we had to wait till 3pm (the check-out time). If there was one, Ning, my sis and I could stay for a night there.
And so we waited in the First World Plaza

It is weird but amazing to see how the candy melts

Bubbly bubble

Shot from the place I sat

Not too long later, dad's friend called and so sad to hear that there wasn't any room left for us. If we informed his friend a day earlier, there might be more chances. Aiks.

It was 3.15pm and we've got nothing much to do already. Therefore it was time to head down to KL.

The monorail, flying coaster and the space shot

Lastly, a reflection shot

Bye bye. It jammed jitty all the way down
