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!

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 …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
