GREETINGS FROM GENTING HIGHLANDS, MALAYSIA.....

The crowd and the long queue before entering the Outdoor Theme Park

The Dermarians have just landed... in Genting Highlands !!

The cheerful faces waiting to enter the World Theme Park in Genting...

Kevin, Suhail and Daeng Dhariry enjoying in the "Flying Coaster"

Ready to enter the "Ghost House Coaster"...

The Dermarians at the "London Double Decker" bus....

This is the "cekik darah" Snow World entrance..
Our belongings had to be left outside to save RM100... and I had to be the security guard !!!

The price list for the photos taken inside the Snow World ......

The Cable cars and the Genting Hotel seen in the morning

On our way down in the late afternoon....


At last, we reached Genting Highlands, a popular holiday spot in Malaysia, this morning. The weather was cool as ever, some 16 degrees Celsius. The cable car ride was breathtaking.., adventurous and took some 20 minutes to reached the summit. Mind you, the cable car system is the longest in South East Asia, covering nearly 4 km in distance.....(Photos will be added later because I couldn't transfer the photos from my camera at the moment)

With a fee of RM35 (USD 10), we could enjoy the outdoor games and sports activities the whole day... Lots and lots of fun. It's sort of a Disneyland carbon copy. It never ends...
Apart from the outdoor activities, indoor outlets were a plenty. There is the casino (for foreigners only), video games, bowling, pools...oh..., what to say.... So many of them.. But, one outlet I would like to specially mention is the "Snow House".

Wooh.... what a letdown!! The snowhouse is just a disaster to visitors.... The entrance fee was too expensive (RM 17 per person). It's just not that. Visitors are not allowed to bring in anything!! Cameras, video cams, handphones, your handbags.... Visitors want to take pictures of their families in the snow house, for god sake!! Furthermore, you will be charged another RM1 to have your belongings kept in a locker...Ironically, there are staffs inside the premise who took pictures of visitors and charge an incredible price... RM 30 (USD 9) each set..
What the hack?? Come on Genting management!! It's a shame to visitors, both locals and foreigners. Yeeeeah.... it's a shame!!!
I feel sorry to all you visitors... It's just a shame......

Well, apart from the Snow House, everything else is excellent. The food stalls are fairly priced. A cup of coffee is RM5. The buffet lunch is RM25... So and so and so.... Try visiting Genting Highlands... You'll have fun....

Not anymore.. Year 2009 was the last one. Beginning 2010, no more to Genting.., just Penang (if you're lucky!!), if not it's just Gunung Keriang in Alor Setar !!!

Owh, entry ni buat Liza teringat kenangan ke Genting. But I was luckier coz we went there for free (siap dpt duit poket sorg RM30)coz Derma won 2nd place MSSPs (1996)and sekolah mmg dpt duit berapa ntah thn tu.. So teachers rewarded all the athletes. :)
