How I Changed My Blog's Layout At Genting Highlands (Part 3)

Posted by : foongpc | Friday, February 26, 2010 | Published in


Continued from Part 2

Once we came down from the cable car, my friend Ed and I walked around Genting Hotel to look for a place to have our lunch. Finally, we settled for Coffee Terrace.

Coffee Terrace offered buffet as well as ala-carte. We went for ala-carte.

We looked through the menu and made our orders. While waiting for the food to arrive, I took some more photos of the interior.

These were items displayed on the wooden shelf.

Ceiling light.

I was having a little cough, so instead of drinking something cold, I went for hot tea.

Finally, our food arrived. It did take quite long and I was hungry!

My friend ate beef stroganoff. I hope I got the name right! If not mistaken, I think it is a Russian dish of sauteed pieces of beef served in a sauce with sour cream.

My friend said it was so so only. I ate a little of the beef and agreed with him.

Mine was baked salmon. It was not too bad, though I would not say it's good!

The bill came up to RM82.80 which was pretty pricey to me! But I did not mind splurging a little, so it was OK.

After lunch, we went over to First World Hotel and had a tour of the Indoor Theme Park. Anyone who enters this Indoor Theme Park will not fail to see this Statue Of Liberty.

And this Oscar statue opposite.

There's a T-Rex's head breaking out of the wall trying to attack an overturned car.

And of course there was my favourite Superhero, who is none other than Superman! But they replaced his S logo with a G! No prize for guessing what that letter G stands for!

By the way, anyone knows who is this Superhero?

If you have been to Genting Highlands a few times already, these pictures may be pretty boring to you, but for first timers, I am sure seeing these pictures would make you want to go Genting Highlands, am I right? : )

Lots of shops and stalls selling stuffs. I did not buy a single thing. My friend Ed bought some clothes from FOS.

Look at these unique lantern balls!

There are many indoor theme park rides, but I just took photos of a few of them only.

Below is the Venice Gondola ride. By the way, the man steering the gondola is not real, haha.

This is a Rio Float. They come in different designs.

This resembles a dragon.

This is what they called a Reindeer Cruiser.

A Rio Float with Reindeer Cruisers in the background.

After all those walking around, we decided to have a drink at Starbucks. It was here that we took out our laptops and did some online surfing. I had wanted to change my blog's template for quite some time but did not really know how so I asked Ed for help.

He showed me some Blogger templates. I chose one which I liked then asked him to teach me how to replace my previous template with the new one that I am having now. It was all done within a matter or minutes! Simple!

And that, my dear readers, is the story of how I changed my blog's layout at Genting Highlands! Nothing dramatic or exciting about it, I'm afraid! Sorry if this seems like an anti-climax but that's how I make you read Part1, 2 and 3 of this story! Haha!

Still, I hope this will not stop you from reading the final part - Part 4 - where I will blog about why we were not allowed to enter the casino. My friend did get to enter in the end though. I did not. Anyone want to guess why? : )

    You were denied entry to casino coz you wore sandal lah..could not be possible for wearing shorts in that weather.

    Food price there seems to off the chart. I had a rude awakening too few years back.

    By the way, I been working in Putrajaya since February. I guess if I said I work in Putrajaya, you will have a rough idea who I am working for now

    hi, i enjoy reading you. and seldom comment, but this time i shall, just to get into the fun of it.looking at those pictures it does not tempt me to go there. i have never been there, and from what i see of the pics and ur report, i dont want to go there.
    as for the casino, i m going to make a really wild and improbable guess. ur friend is an angmore and can go in anytime and u r malaysian, and malaysians need to put down a big deposit before u can go in and u dont have that deposit. haha.
    the reason why i say this is because i was in cambodia, and there the casinos are run by malaysians, and the country has a rule that prevents local cambodians from being allowed to enter the casinos. foreigners can.

    Coffee Terrace used to serve very good Hainanese chicken rice.

    February 26, 2010 at 10:31 PM
  11. HappySurfer said...

    The casino still observes some dresscode for guys. I think that is good to maintain a certain casino standard. You were not caught offguard, were you, Foong?

  12. Reanaclaire said...

    Surely not underaged!! surely not a Muslim or are u?? or not blacklisted, right? other than these 3 reasons... OH, no proper shoes? last time they need batik or tie.. now i heard very flexible already.. so what else ah.. NO IC to prove u r over 21? hahahaha.. my reasons sounds ridiculous ...

    You did not read the sign at the door properly it says "Pandas Not Allowed" especially MBP - Malaysian Born Panda..:)

    No laptop to be carried into the casino bro and you rather hang on to your baby than leave her in a locker. Right?

    February 26, 2010 at 10:54 PM
  15. இ Baŋäŋaz இ said...

    Also no camera allowed and you rather hang on to it and refused to lock in the lockers for fear it got feet and wings?

    February 26, 2010 at 10:58 PM
  16. இ Baŋäŋaz இ said...

    Ed did get to enter in the end coz you are kind enuf to 'babysit' his laptop & camera for him.:p

  20. iamthewitch said...

    I guess you can't enter the casino because you were carrying your laptop, which means you had a backpack with you? :P I know the casino doesn't allow people with backpacks in... :)

    eat in Genting sure expensive one. Even McD cost more there.

    February 27, 2010 at 12:34 AM
  22. lina said...

    I agree with Bananaz. You don't want to be apart your laptop and camera.

    Or was it because of the dress code. Wear batik or collared short or some nonsense like that?

    The place looks like a semi-indoor amusement park, with a bit of casino themes, and a bit of a place we have in the California called Universal Studio Park.

    The superhero you asked about, at first glance, looks like Hulk but at closer look, I don't think I'm right.

    Ahhh, Genting, might go up there next week!

  25. Tekkaus said... Terrace? :p The deco looks so extravagant.

    February 27, 2010 at 6:08 AM
  26. Tekkaus said...

    Ouh...they offered both buffet and a la carte up there. Good for those who have been playing too much until they are super hungry. :)

    February 27, 2010 at 6:09 AM
  27. Tekkaus said...

    The deco looks so exquisite. :D Are those what...lunch boxes? Japanese era? :p

    February 27, 2010 at 6:10 AM
  28. Tekkaus said...

    Wow...what a bombastic word for a dish. Haha :D But I think it is ok since it is Russian.

    February 27, 2010 at 6:11 AM
  29. Tekkaus said...

    The baked salmon looks good to me. :)

    Goodness...the bill came up to...RM80++ for 2 dishes? Wow...they really sucked your blood up there huh!

    February 27, 2010 at 6:13 AM
  30. Tekkaus said...'s been such a long time since I last went to Genting and I certainly missed a lot of stuff there.

    I am sure their indoor theme park has changed a lot. :p

    February 27, 2010 at 6:14 AM
  31. Tekkaus said...

    The hero clad in tight red speedo is Genting man. LOL :D

    Then the one below...hmmm...looks like a lost ninja. :p

    February 27, 2010 at 6:15 AM
  32. Tekkaus said... even brought your laptop to Genting huh! :)

    So that's how you changed it. At starbuck. :D

    February 27, 2010 at 6:18 AM
  33. Tekkaus said...

    I know why you are not allowed to enter bro. because you look to damn young. :p

    February 27, 2010 at 6:18 AM
  34. Donna said...

    u're under age? impossible! wahahaha..
    wah.. genting changed so much already..

    February 27, 2010 at 8:39 AM
  35. Shingo T said...

    You wore slippers or you had your camera with you, and so was not allowed in?

    Everything at Genting is so pricey. The cheaper food can be found at the casino eateries, or just take fast food (Marrybrown?).

  36. [SK] said...

    ok, finally in just 1 paragraph out of more than 50, you told us about "how" you change the layout~~ claps!! :p

    February 27, 2010 at 10:23 AM
  37. [SK] said...

    well, dining up there in Genting?? never expect nice food, but always expect expensive food.. :D

    February 27, 2010 at 10:23 AM
  38. [SK] said...

    so you took so many photos in the indoor theme, did you take any ride there??

    February 27, 2010 at 10:26 AM
  39. [SK] said...

    hmmm, no allowed to go into the casino?? let me guess.. you guys were wearing short pants??

    February 27, 2010 at 10:27 AM
  40. [SK] said...

    or because you guys were carrying your laptops and your camera with you??

    February 27, 2010 at 10:27 AM
  41. [SK] said...

    so, any special prize if guessed correctly this time?? hahahahaha :D

    You were wearing shorts. That's why you could not get in?

    So I guess you are all grown up? Haha! Cos adults normally don't find these photos very interesting.

    Haha, your guess is wrong. My friend is a Malaysian Chinese just like me. And we don't need to put down a big deposit to gamble in Genting casino!

    Oh, I haven't been to Cambodian casinos, in fact haven't been to Cambodia before! Going there later this year, though : )

  57. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, really? Have not tried their hainanese chicken!

    The Genting casino is not so strict anymore. Last time rules were wear batik or suit to enter, now wear T-shirt (no collar) also can enter! Of course singlet and shorts and slippers like going pasar malam cannot lah, haha!

    March 1, 2010 at 1:15 PM

    March 1, 2010 at 1:25 PM
  64. foongpc said...

    lina,yeah, expensive! But not as expensive as Japan lah ; )

    Haha, Bananaz is correct! The dress code not so strict now - no need to wear batik or collared T-shirt any more : )

    March 1, 2010 at 1:26 PM
  65. foongpc said...

    rose belle, yeah, a bit like Universal Studio Park but not exactly. No, it's definitely not The Hulk. Looks like no one knows who this superhero is. Or maybe Genting just created it for fun! Haha

  68. foongpc said...

    tekkaus, the deco is nice. Also quite nice ambience.

    No, they are not lunch boxes. Not sure what they are!

    yeah, really expensive but I don't mind to splurge once in a while.

    You must make a trip to Genting, bro. Bring your whole family! : )

    I look damn young? Haha! I can prove my age with my IC, so that's not a good reason! LOL!
