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!

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...
