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

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days....

Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table...
Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served... 
Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns...  And the most delicious part is none other…

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 …

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again.

Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists....

Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street....

Come... Let's Go!
We started from the beginning of the street...  A …
