Shopping And Food At First World Indoor Theme Park, Gentings

AFTER CHECKING INTO OUR ROOMS AND FEELING SATISFIED, it was time for us to do some walking and exploring.  The last time I visited Gentings, it has been more than 6 years, for my sister and friends, the last time they stepped into Gentings was more than 10 years.  It is really time for us to make our footprints here again.

So much has changed... for one, no more outdoor theme park for now till next year.  Secondly, there are so many shops now and that includes eatery stalls as well and we were amazed to see so many people even though it was a weekday and not even holiday season yet.  I cannot imagine how the crowd would be if it is a school holiday.... there were just endless tourists from overseas filling up the area..... Really an eye opener for us... Gentings is indeed one main attraction in Malaysia, no doubt about that....

We spent a couple of hours walking and walking... and we were loving that... that means food for our hungry tummies later without feeling heavy! LOL....

Here are some pictures taken in the one of the biggest hotel in the world, First World Hotel...
Saw Ah Yat Abalone... but no winnings as yet so we didn't go in.. LOL... 
We ended up eating at Hoe Sek Restaurant... 
The prices are very standardized.. 
Each plate is around RM21... 
Just look at the Giant Bowl!
But amazingly I could finish all of it without sharing... LOL....
Our walks up and down the whole area.... 
The endless shops and the resting for the tired... 
And for the Vain, more and more poses here and there and everywhere...
LOL....

  4. You look so slim, where go 30 inches waist, more like 28 inches. I find food in Genting very expensive. The last time I went there was in 2008 which is 8 years ago.

  8. I actually enjoy walking around the shops and hotel very much. Would you believe that some crazy days, my wife and I would just drive all the way up to have Starbucks at Genting, relax and do some work from lap top. After dinner, we would drive back home to KL. It was my wife's idea to change our mundane routine doing work online. LOL

  11. The last time I went Genting was in 2014, normally I stayed at First World Hotel, that time when I went with my friend, we went to the Karaoke to sing our hearts out, we also did some shopping and we played a short while at the Casino, can't remember did we win, Genting is a nice place for relaxing, but some said the weather there not as cooling as last time le

    So far in my life I went Genting about four times I think, 2006, 2010, 2011 and 2014. Seems like I will visit there every 4 years

    Thanks for sharing all the nice photos

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
