Genting trip

Genting trip

We went to Genting on 9th November 2006 after hubby was off from work. Hubby managed to get hold of a free one night stay voucher at First World Hotel in Genting. It was a long overdue trip to Genting as hubby had promised to bring me there since I was pregnant with Brae. It has been a year long!

At first, I thought of letting Brae have a try at the cable car to Genting and at the same time, we can give our tired car a rest midway up the hill but daddykhong would have none of that. He charged all the way up the hill and we arrived with literally smoking tyres.

I am sure everyone has heard of the pigeon hole rooms at First World and we were looking forward to that. Much to our amazement, the room wasn’t that bad. Maybe because we have low standards and maybe also due to the fact that it was free!!

After we dropped everything in the room, we quickly went out to look for a place to have dinner since it was already 7pm. We walked around before we settled at Ho Mei. Since I didn’t prepare Brae’s food, we ordered a Sar Hor Fun soup for him. He finished most of it. The price was quite reasonable, considering it’s Genting. After the meal, we went for a walk around the place. We thought of letting Brae try out the Genting Skytrain since that’s the only thing that he/we could ride on. However, we scrapped the idea after seeing no individual ticket counter for that and we had to pay the full price of RM40+ per pax.

It was 11pm+ when Brae fell asleep in the stroller. Since he was sleeping, we settled at Starbucks. Hubby took the opportunity to check his emails (yes, even though he says his mind is not at work, I knew he was lying through his teeth) while I was caught up with my newspaper reading. We went back to our room after Brae woke up.

We woke up around 10am the next morning. We checked out before we went to have breakfast at Hainan Cafe. There, the food variety was atrocious and they were not cheap either. A set of roti bakar and a cup of coffee/tea cost RM9+. After that, we walked around outside the plaza before we decided to make the drive back down to KL.

It is nice to go for a trip, just the 3 of us before our 2nd baby is out.

    I used to worked in Ho Mei… doing my internship with Genting (GICC) then and the soup was actually catered from a supplier from KL… like an essence type and staff in Ho Mei just add water to dilute it before serving… hehehe *now you know hor!* πŸ˜›
    The only good food around is the Italian restaurant but price…you should have guessed lar… EX!

    Yeah… must say the food sucks and the pricing is overboard but people just pay lar…. happy happy mah…
