A day trip to Genting

On the 14th Jan was Negeri Sembilan's PH. We took this opportunity to bring the kids to Genting. MIL and SIL tagged along. Too bad, we need to work on the next day (Saturday). Else, we will sure stay a night there. 

We left at around 7am and headed straight to Genting with an empty stomach. The weather that day was real good. Very misty and windy. 

Our first stop was at the Chinese Temple. We are not religious. We did not even went into the temple to pray. Basically, we just love the scenery and statues in the temple. A great place to stopover for some photo takings.

YX got too excited and climbed all the way up without waiting for us

Love this misty pagoda. 

Both kids posing with one of the statue in the temple. 

YX's favourite - The Monkey God. 

Asking the kids to hug and smile, they gave me this pose ! 

We had a light breakfast at the temple. There is a stall selling fried noodles, nasi lemak and some fried stuffs. After spending about 30 mins at the temple, we proceed to the hill top.

When the kids saw the indoor theme park with all the arcade machines, they were so excited. They ran from one machine to another. Too bad, their parents were so stingy and did not even change any token for them to play. haha..... We were afraid the kids won't have enough and kept on asking for more. So we just told them SEE AND TOUCH ONLY.

 
YX was fascinated by this sophisticated game machine. With huge screen and designed for preschooler height.

Even we did not spend a single cents in the arcade, not even on the kiddy rides, both kids ENJOYED themselves so much. We had a hard time luring them away from the arcade to proceed to other place.

The colorful First World Hotel
We then proceeded to the Snow World and as usual, SEE ONLY from the window outside. The ticket price was freaking expensive at RM20 per person (adult and child same price). If I were to bring both YX and XJ, I'm afraid I can't handle both of them at the same time. If hubby were to follow us in, we will need to pay RM60 for the 3 of us with XJ still FOC. I don't think it is worth it. I told hubby jokingly that YX and XJ will have to study hard in order to see and experience snow when they further their studies overseas in the future.

After lunch, we decided to take the monorail ride (caterpillar look like train) which circle the whole Indoor + Outdoor Theme Park. Price at RM8 per adult per ride. Surprisingly, the ticketing staff did not charge YX for the ride.

It was a relaxing ride and we were lucky because once we reached the final station, it started to rain heavily. All rides (involving outdoor) will have to be halt till the rain has stop. Once YX get down from the monorail, he requested for a FASTER ride in the future. He commented that the monorail was moving TOO SLOW.  

We left Genting at around 2 pm. As usual, XJ was too tired and slept in the car. However, my energizer bunny YX still have full bar of battery. He did not sleep throughout the whole journey. Once we reached home, he quickly grabbed his bike and asked me to accompany him to cycle ! I was so groggy and how I wish I could just lie on the bed and sleep. Nevertheless, his battery worn out at night. By 8pm he was already sound asleep !

  5. I agree on YX that the Caterpillar is indeed too slow moving. Your kids are good already, didn't request to take any ride in the theme park.

  10. You went to Genting too. Ya, I was going to say Alice was there too. When I was last there, there was no First World Hotel yet...so you can imagine how long ago that was. Must go again one of these days - must be so different now.

  13. The misty pagoda makes you feel like you are in 'heaven'. Why you installed the wrong or under sized batter for XJ, knock out flat compared to YX's full bar? haha
