SkySymphony And Chan Poh Chu In Gentings!

AS IF IT IS NOT COLD ENOUGH IN IPOH... GENTINGS WE WENT!!

The weather these days are pretty cooling here, not only in Ipoh but many parts in Malaysia especially the coastal areas.  For the first time since many months back, I saved electricity for one night without the air con, the night air was so nice and cooling with the windows opened.

Oh, I have digressed... In this post, it is about my three days getaway to Gentings!

This time we drove up, parked the car in Awana Sky Avenue... walked a bit around the Gentings Premium Outlet stores, had the most expensive ice cream cone at Godiva for RM25 and off we went up to the hotel via Cable Car... Each ticket is RM8 each...

As usual, we stayed at the cheapest hotel, that is the First World, the largest hotel in the world!  The place was full of people and more people, throughout the whole day and night.  It is the busiest lobby I have ever seen so far... there is no night nor day here... Checking in is pretty easy on the many self kiosks at the lobby... no long queues and waiting, just have to slot in my ID and everything is done, room receipt and key given at the same kiosk.  Quickly we put our bags in the room and out we went to explore the newly opened Sky Avenue.

Staying in First World is very convenient...up the escalator and everything is there... this time we stood there to admire the spectacular SkySymphony!  It is a free-to-public performance showcasing an extraordinary orchestra of audio, visual and motion graphics programming.  With 1,001 winch balls suspended from a four-storey high ceiling, each performance is accompanied by cinematic visuals and original music mix.





Show ended within 5-10 minutes.
Next highlights on the screen showed this!
Presenting the actress of yester-years...
Chan Poh Chu..
I wonder how many of us can still remember her...
Those born in the 50s and 60s.. should know.. LOL
And I am one of them... 
Too bad I could not be able to make it for her concert on the 20.1.2018!!

  1. Yes. Pretty cold lately especially today. Cloudy and occasional rain.

    Oh. Not sure I heard her song or not. But I know she is an actress and I watched some of her drama.

  4. Wow! I have never seen anything like this Sky Symphony! Is it a hologram...or maybe a giant screen? What a grand idea to have the kiosks, we have nothing like this! Long lines at fancy hotels. Can't wait to see the rest of your adventure!

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
