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

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond
