Recent Genting Highlands Trip - Pt 1

Hello everyone!

Come around and let me tell you of an adventure trip we took to super cool Genting Highlands!
You are in for a treat! I have pictures to show you on my entire journey!

and yes
We are up, up and away!
Yes, I was certainly "blown" away by the cool breeze that greeted me on my way up. Genting Highlands's "cool breeze" certainly defines "cool" on another scale! (coming from a Penang guy who have lived life on a tropical island) haha
It's a long winding road to the top! My sincere respect to "Uncle Lim" that have started the vision to build this path up for all of us to enjoy..thank you!
The roads are so misty! But that's what we all love about Genting Highlands isn't it?
Beautiful oak trees standing strong. The climate is so suitable for the trees growth and nurturing !
I had the chance to stop by Tan Sri (Dr) Lim Goh Tong's memorial hall. Tan Sri Lim is also better known as "uncle Lim" by most local people. People remember him as a cheerful guy who was kind and also fiercely passionate about his dream. Well, due to that dream that he had, now everyone can enjoy Genting Highlands as a resort and super cool get away!

The fishes here are huge!
The rainforest trees just towering majestically above me

Morning Glory soaking up fresh dew from the atmosphere! So refreshing!~
Finally we had arrived at our hotel: Genting Highlands first world hotel! Thank God the queue was short as we were all so tired and needed our rest. A long queue may take for hours, this is why there is even a ticket counter board at the casino so that guest may leave their baggage at their respective area and head towards the casino for some game time while waiting to check in the hotel
So whats the first thing you will do when you check into a hotel after a 5 hour drive?
Ah I just love the greetings of loud cheers and screams for the amusement park, i really do (not)! Well..perhaps after some sleep and rest it will all just go away..
Attempted HDR effect, hehe
Well, the first thing we gotta do after such a long drive is - charge up the devices! I must say that our electronic gadgets keep sucking out battery power faster and faster these days! Screen size are getting larger and larger and we grow to be more and more dependent on battery charging! Halt! Open the flood gates of portable battery charges please!
Uhh!! The mist is here! I love the mist! ahhh...such a warm and fuzzy feeling inside - freezing cold on the outside tho :/
Well, again I must say - can you blame this tropical island guy for getting all excited about the mist? Hey, its not something I can see everyday...if this happens on the island, its not the "cool mist"..its the haze, baby!

The view of Genting's theme park! so much fond memories of me there! Well..will be heading there soon for a blast again! (Gotta get those adrenaline pump system up and full speed ahead soon) ;)
But first..lets get some sleep!

Woke up and found that it was almost sun down..
so what woke me up from such beauty sleep? Ahh....Well it was my internal alarm tummy! 
This is us, dining at one of our favorite dinner spot! You know you are close to be "haunting" the place when the waitress remembers your face even after 2 months of absence... :0
What could I ask more when I could have a classic cup of hot Chinese tea up at the cold mountain?
One of em billboards

Tho the shop was crowded, the service here is quite efficient!
For those "breathers", you can purchase your needs here...
The servers are dressed in striking orange! Nice colour I must commend
So..where is our food?
Ah, mine came! I love their curry laksa! One of my favorite orders here! Now now, not every body loves this spicy delight, but I for sure will never cancel it out of my top 30 "hitlist" for food when I am in the area.
"So I'm gonna take one last shot..dont touch your meal, 
okay, your giving me that "look"..
shot taken..please enjoy your meal in peace! "
This guy however looks eager, well pleased and ready to FEAST! 
Welllll... that's all for part 1 of my recent trip from Penang to to Genting Highlands, gonna upload more pictures and footage to share soon
So until then, tooled-doo!
