Genting Highlands

Continuation of my KL trip based on the photos I took.

1) At Genting Highlands. I was still dizzy and had a headache from the taxi ride. Still blur, we walked into the Theme Park and three guys came up to us. Two of them holding snakes, one with an iguana (i think). Before I knew it, they slung the snake over our shoulders and started snapping photos of us..

I like this photo..cs has this photo printed out and framed on his desk! =) =)

Anyway, don't think that I'm so brave. I'm not. I was actually quite scared of the snake. It was fine when the snake was just laying there on my shoulders. But once it started moving, I was quite terrified and just wanted to get rid of it...

Why is he still smiling??

2) This is called the Space Shot. When I saw it on the website, it looked pretty scary from the website. On arrival, I was still debating whether I would have the guts to ride it or not. But the thing is, it doesn't look that scary when you're right in front of it. The queue was pretty long but the good thing was 12 people could go on it together, which shortens the queue pretty fast.

When the fog comes in.

There was two kids (guys). Not really kids actually. They look around 14 years of age. Not yet puberty, I'm guessing cos still shorter than me..Anyway when it was their turn, they were so scared that both of them were holding hands tightly. Grasping each other and saying: I'm so scared..I'm so scared (in cantonese). When the ride finished, his face was in shock. Then when he realized the whole queue was laughing at him, he quickly looked down and ran off as soon as the seat belts were unfastened. Heh..poor thing.

My verdict? Not scary. Cs went on this thing before and he said its not as scary as you think. Just enjoy the scenery while you're up there before the whole thing zooms down. Due to some stupid seat arrangement, cs and I weren't seating together. We were the last two to be let in, so the two empty seats were apart. Grrr...

I sat next to two younger girls. Grr.. Cs told me to count to 12 when you heard the whooosh sound. After 12 seconds, the thing drops. But i only made it to five before I fell. It was the feeling of weightlessness, like you're flying in the air. Before you know it, its over. It goes up once more then drops another time. Then that's it. Ride over. Not scary right? Proof that its not scary, on the way down, I was digging for my phone and managed to take this photo before landing:

3) Cs doesn't look so thin here.

4) This thing was closed for maintenance. SUcks..

Look. London bus and phone box in the distance...

5) Cs is sleeping. Hahaha...this reminds me of something the other day. In the car on the way home from work, we were laughing at something. Both of us laughing so hard while he was still driving. Halfway laughing, I looked up at him, panicked and said: baby..open your eyes!! You're driving! Him (shouting at me): My eyes is small larrrr..My eyes are open!!! $%^&*

6) No. 14 to Chelsea?

7) Outdoor theme park. Whole day pass..

8) Look there's a ghost staring at us in the background.

Not alike? Here..this photo for comparison..

I think they look alike. heh. Anyway, this was taken inside the First World Hotel. We went to the Haunted House. At the same place as Ripley's Believe It or Not. I didn't want to go in. Cs wanted to try the Haunted House. So we did. We went in with a 10 year old boy and a Malay couple. Cs and I were the first couple ushered in. It was dark and spooky all around and we were made to wear these 3D glasses so none of us wanted to walk in front.

Cs was like: ehh..kamu jalan dulu la. (you walk first)
But no one wanted to walk in front. It was the usual things you would expect inside a haunted house. Ghosts jumping out at you to grab you, things touching your face, loud noises etc. All of us screamed a few times. But it was more of scaring ourselves. The place wasn't scary but it was fun nonetheless. Heh..

9) Mr Baoz at Pavillion, KL. I have received emails about these paos before and was therefore pretty excited to see these. I know the photo doesn't look good. You're probably thinking what's so special? Well, the truth is, nothing is! It doesn't taste good. They taste like any other pao I see. Heck, I had better tasting paos in Kuching. Even the paos in frozen packaging tastes better than this.

The toppings were vegetables: green peas, carrot, corn. The pao itself was yellow in colour. The inside was some chicken stuffing. Taste was mediocre.

Bear in mind that this verdict was given by two very picky eaters. Fail..

At least it came in a nice cute little box:

13) It was a windy day and he was tucking my hair behind my ears. Cs is always doing things like this for me. Little things. For instance, he knows I'm afraid of the sun, so, even in the taxi, he uses his hand to shield my face from the sun. And when its drizzling, he uses the map to shield my head, while he gets soak. *sigh*

14) The indoor theme park. But we didn't go on any rides. I was still dizzy from the taxi ride. And maybe also from the rollercoaster rides outside..

We went back to KL at around 2pm. We didn't go inside the casino. Neither of us wanted to gamble. Didn't do any shopping cos things were ridiculously priced especially the food. Actually both of us were tired. Exhausted from clubbing on Saturday night. We reached our hotel at around 3am, and woke up at 9am to go to Genting. No wonder we were exhausted, and I was dizzy.

Cs said the hotel staff gave us weird looks when we arrived back at the hotel just 4 hours later. Probably thinking what a waste of money and time. What the hell man. I was so tired that when we reached our hotel room, I kicked off my shoes and basically just flopped down on the bed and couldn't move...
