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

Feeling Jitty Again

AHHH… It’s been weeks (or months?) since the death of MJ and looks like my blog is dead as well. Hah, don’t worry it hasn’t. I have been keeping myself busy with….erm, FACEBOOK, in particularly the Happy Farm and Restaurant City. I have been working non-stop as a farmer as well as a restaurant manager cum waiter cum cleaner. Life is hard, isn’t it.

Anyway, today I am feeling 'jitty' so I’ve decided to write something here. Let me just post up some photos taken during the last weekend. I went back to KL cuz the National Day was on Monday. In fact, I went back home last Wednesday after the Japanese class so that I will have a longer holiday. Yup, I am taking Japanese language again and by the end of this year I will sit for the Japanese Proficiency Test Level 4 (JLPT4) together with Ning. わたしのこいびと ^^

Last Wednesday, Choon Wah, Ning and I headed to KL at around 7pm by Ning’s car. My car has been sent for service following a minor accident in the campus car park two weeks ago. The front part of the car was slightly crushed.
 An unfortunate day


On Thursday, I brought Ning to the aquarium shop opposite my house and she was delighted to see so many fishes especially the guppy. There were many female guppy with nice red colour tail. Sadly we couldn’t  manage to buy some back as the shop hasn’t open on the day we wanted to return to UTM.

At night, we went to Low Yat Plaza cuz I have wanted to get an external hard disk for since a long time ago. I got the 320GB Western Digital with a 2.5” Cooler Master casing. Then I swapped the hard disk with the 120GB one in my laptop.

I need more storage

Always cool

After that we went for some doughnuts at the Times Square's Krismy Kreme. We stayed there for a while and I played Happy Fedarm surf the internet with my laptop as there is free WIFI.

Heavenly sweet


On Friday, Ning and I met up with Choon Wah at KLCC before going to the Bookfest at the convention centre. This is also the reason why we wanted to go back to KL at first – to visit the largest annual bookfair in Malaysia. In KL, I could see many people wearing masks fearing that the Ahini virus might spread.

We went by LRT
Bookfest @ KLCC

I bought a book by Steven Hawking 'The Universe in a Nutshell' It talks about general relativity and quantum theory which I've always been interested since I was young. Also I got myself a chinese version of D.K. Ching reference book. Ning bought an animal encyclopedia and a comic. Choon Wah bought a VRay rendering tutorial as well as an architectural handbook. We had pizza for lunch. Only then I realised the menu of Pizza Hut in KLCC is different from the other outlets.


On Saturday, Ning wanted to meet up with her hometown friends studying in IMU and UKM - Bibi and Ing Ing. And MidValley was the meeting spot. I was quite impressed with the Raya decoration in the mall. Everything was so Lat/comic/paper-like. *thumbs up* =)


Chicky chicky

Ah, reminds me of the measured drawing days

L-R: TBK, Bibi zai, Ing Ing, Ning and me

For dinner, Bibi zai insisted going to Chili's Grill & Bar and there was a lot of people queuing up the line outside the restaurant. I put down my name and the guy told us to come back in another 1 hour. Good food always come after a long wait. Here are what we ordered that night:
Lamb Shoulder
Country-Fried Chicken Crispers
Monterey Chicken

After a satisfying meal, Ning and I said goodbye to her friends and we went to Wisma MCA for a charity concert organised the Buddhist Society. Earlier, Tiong invited us there as he will be singing on that night.
This will be aired on Astro AEC during the Mooncake festival
Rynn Lim (林宇中) was one of the guests

However it was already late when we reached there and therefore we watched for a while before leaving the hall. Didn't get the chance to watch Tiong performing on stage.

I think I shall stop for now as I'm getting a lil tired+sleepy already. To be continued soon... =)
