...weekend thrill at the peak...

i just came back from my genting trip with happening, fun friends...thank you so much...so so loving our great moments together... it all began yesterday afternoon after Beebee and me finished our half-session Bakti programme...at around 12 noon, Hasanul came and pick us up at Beebee's home...while waiting for Afiq, we went to the bank and 7 Eleven for our tidbits...Afiq arrived nearly quarter to 1pm...so, we decided to have our lunch first...

we went to Leha Kelfood Restaurant at Taman Melati...Hasanul had his Mixed Rice while Beebee opt for Nasi Kerabu...Afiq and me chose Mee Celup...I also enjoy my favourite dessert there - Lompat Tikam...ermmm...nice!So did Afiq who enjoyed his favourite Akok...

we reached the Genting Skyway terminal around 230pm...it was my first time taking a ride on the skyway and i was amazed...i'm not afraid of height but was informed that the skyway operated in Langkawi is frightful due to the fact that there is water surrounding below it as compared to the greenery side of Genting Skyway...okay...anyway, it took us nearly 20 minutes or so to reach the top of Genting Highlands... we then went to check-in to our rooms at First World Hotel...again, i was impressed with the system...it felt like being at the airport or bank...we took our calling number and wait for our turn to register...there are 30 open counters that serves about 6000 rooms...wow...



we settled in our rooms and were very lucky to get connecting rooms...Beebee complained of the small room offered to us...this was based on her comparison with the rates offered by Theme Park Hotel...yet i think that we just have to be satisfied...after all, we came via promotional coupons...

after done with our prayers, we went out to play...yeay...we don't have any pre-planned activities...it was just go and dive for it...lalalalalala...happy happy...
we went to the First World Cinema and got ourselves Premium Tickets to watch The Fast & The Furious 4 at 9pm...next, we went to the SnowWorld...again, we were on the lucky side as the next admission time was scheduled at 530pm and we were just at the right timing...we spent the rest of our 30 minutes waiting time for posing session at the Indoor Theme Park...
inside the SnowWorld, we were a bit disappointed with the snow...it was chilled in there but the snow was like crushed ice...it was way too far from what i imagined snow were like...Hasanul and Afiq who had experienced the real snow confirmed this too...we couldn't play snowballs as the "snow" can't be molded into balls :(

but, we still had great fun...we went for the Snow Xtreme ride - a bumping tube ride down snow slide...and we went inside plastic igloo...Beebee and me went down the children' slide...we also took pictures with the Polar Bear and Panda Bear and ice sculpture...

exiting SnowWorld, we went back to our rooms for a quick shower...we went out again at 7pm to have our dinner at Kenny Rogers Roasters...everyone had the Kenny's Quarter Chicken Meal except for me...i picked on the new promotional item - Kenny's Balinese Baked Cod Fish...there were many incidents in which earned us an extra muffin...

since we have plenty of time before our movie was screened, we went for a walk outside to get the feel of the breeze...and we also went for sightseeing at the Songkran Thai fair booths...
actually, when we were purchasing our movie tickets, we were interested with the OSIM seats but we rejected the deal knowing that they were placed at the 1st row...the cinema was okay - not too cold, seats are not that comfortable, a slightly lower cup holder, the quality of visual is average & so does the sound system...however, the Fast & The Furiouss 4 was awesome...macho Vin Diesel and Paul Walker...yeay...i would rate it at 4.83 stars...however, the story this time around does not portray a lot of good looking cars...although i found the plot of the race and the intensity of fast cars were exciting...the story was dramatic, really...and guess what, not so sexy laa...

after the movie, Hasanul went back to rest leaving the three of us...Beebee, Afiq and me then went to the Arcade...


we also took a walk to the Highlands Hotel...and we went to several retail outlet stores just to window shop...and we did what we did best - photogedixing...and finally, we had our supper next to the Gondola channel...we had cold Manjoos (soft cake like 'bahulu') and Beebee had a Nasi Lemak...

we conclude our day at nearly 1am...

this morning, our day start at 9am where we had our breakfast at Marrybrown Restaurant...and today is where the real fun begin as we went to get our Genting All Park tickets...yeay...happy happy happy... at about 10am, we had our first ride - The Flying Jumbo...hahahaha...so cute...i took on the 'Gajah Putih'...weee...don't know what happened to Afiq and Beebee as both their elephants stay at the low side...
the next ride is the Tea Cup sponsored by Ribena...we got the light dizzy feel from here...

then, we move on to our first adrenaline injection...we had our ride on the 1st Malaysia's Roller Coaster - Cyclone...yeehaa...after that, we went for the High Flying Swing...
we walked to the lake and saw a long queue at the Cycle Boat as well as the Bumper Boat station...hence, we decided to go back to our rooms as we were approaching our check out time...
we then went to put our things at the locker near the escalator at First World Cinema...from there, we moved to entertain ourselves at the Indoor Theme Park...we went to drive a lefthand side Junior Bumper Car...and then followed by the Ohmega Turn Roller Coaster...this was an all-out laughter coaster ride...after that, we had a slow ride on the Ferris Wheel...
we thought to have our lunch at 12pm but everyone did not feel hungry yet...so, we move on to have a ride at the Gold Mine Runaway Train...next to it is the Sungai Rajang Flume Ride...so, it became a double adrenaline pleasures...yess....

at about 1pm, we had our sumptuous lunch at the Thai stalls...I had Tom Yam Kuey Teow, Afiq had Tom Yam Mee, Beebee had Tom Yam Meehoon and Hasanul had Thai Laksa...we also had a generous portion of Som Tam, Mango Kerabu, Fried Shrimps, Seafood Kerabu and Otak-otak to be shared among us...uuu...yummy yummy happy...

after lunch, we decided to take again a slow ride on the Monorail to get the overview of Genting Theme Park both outdoor and indoor...after the monorail ride, we intended to ride on the Flying Dragon coaster but were turned off as the entrance is quite far and the time seems to be jealous...alternatively to keep our adrenaline level at bay, we went for the Ohmega Turn Roller Coaster ride for the second time...the best thing was this time we got to experience being at the last coaster...yeay...

we then continue to play GoGo Ball - tossing balls game machine at the Arcade...our accumulated tickets amounting to 202 redeem points where we got a keychain each worth 50 points...happy happy...

we rushed to the Genting Skyway station at around 4pm...we bought our tickets and then went for a tea time at Baskin Robbins kiosk...we shared a Double Berry Waffle Sundae - a 2 scoops (BoisenBerry & Royal Mousse Chocolate)...

we safely descended to the terminal at nearly quarter to 5pm...

it was raining semi-heavily on our journey back to KL...and i felt grateful our day at Genting was blessed with a very fine weather...

what i missed then? the extreme rides - yess...anyway, considering my sternum, i wouldn't dare to take the risks... ABPBH?!!! we do saw some celebrities around - JoeFlizzow, Eizlan Yusof, one of Senario member and Datuk K without Siti...huhuhu...

there goes my happening weekend thrill at the peak...

till then, i am happy and happy and happy...
