    • City Of Entertainment: Genting Highlands

      You guys are good, yes it is Genting Highlands we had our family vacation. Wow that place has changed so much since I was there 7 years ago. We drove up, it takes 5 hours to drive up from Penang to Genting. We used the Batang Kali road. However it took us 8 hours to come back. I tell you why in the next post.

      Theme Park Hotel

      We stayed in Theme Park Hotel with a view. We had a family suite with 2 queen size bed, a TV area and a dinning area. I realize there wasn’t any air condition in the room. Hey who needs it? This is Genting we are talking about, natural air condition.

      We had a good view of the theme park from the room. The bad is we can also hear people screaming from the theme park.

      Thanks to my mother, we had it free because she had a lot of points (WP) to exchange for hotel, meals and theme park tickets. I don’t think you want to know how she gets those points.

      Theme Park:

      There are 2 main theme parks in Genting, outdoor and indoor. We preferred the indoor theme parks as most rides are more suitable for my children’s age. Family package cost RM246 (Normal) and RM264 (Peak) for 2 days. However we went there on Sunday which was peak, we decided to get the indoor package (RM95) on Sunday and outdoor package on Monday.(RM106).

      There wasn’t any queue because we went there during weekdays. It was fun for my children as they can ride as many times as they want. Emily love the ride called “Ride De Paris” where there are different vehicles that go round and round, up and down. Vehicles like police car, ambulance, ice-cream truck, tractor and etc. She really got her money’s worth. Timothy was too tall for that ride.

      Other attractions were Flying Coaster, Genting Sky Venture, SnowWorld, Ripley’s Believe It or Not and First World Cineplex. We didn’t go to any of those as it was not suitable for Tim & Em. We wanted to go to Snow World but both my children have runny nose so we decided to pass.


      Tim was dying to ride the cable car but twice we went there, it was closed without any reasons.

      There weren’t many rides in the outdoor theme park there were suited for younger children.

      Weather was not on our side, it was raining and foggy.

      There were a lot of smokers everywhere, indoor and outdoor.

      Cantonese Joke From My Aunt

      Genting Highland is famous for its casino, the one and only license casino.

      Aunt: Here they only serve fruits like watermelon, papaya, honey dew and any melon you can think off. No pineapple. What soup are you drinking?

      Me: Winter melon soup. *roll eyes*


      Watermelon = Sai Kuah
      Honey Dew = Mutt Kuah
      Papaya = Muk Kuah
      Winter melon = Tung Kuah
      Bitter Goard = Fu Kuah

      Kuah, kuah, kuah….Kuah in Cantonese means DIE which is not very good if you are gambling. They don’t serve any pineapple (Wong Lai). Wong Lai meaning prosperity come. No Wong Lai, all die.

      Me: Nah, eat some sang choy (lettuce). :giggles:

      Later, I got my aunt some pineapple and she said she strikes 2 mini jackpots. Not sure how true. I don’t gamble so eating any kuah doesn’t disturb me any bit.
