It has been quite sometime since my last outing to a hill resort. It was year 2008 when i last visited Genting Highlands. This time around, I have another free stay at First World hotel. Despite a cheapskate hotel, it was a good escapade from the city hectic life. Jumping at the opportunity, I headed to catch the free shuttle bus early in the morning. Not exactly free, some fares need to be paid as deposit…but still worth it...
With that small sum, I got to have:
Free return shuttle ride
Enjoy free Chinese New Year musical show at Arena Genting
Have free meal in the casino
and here's our tiny room
note how much it has changed from my previous visit!
all equipments being provided - fridge, hair dryer, water heater, clothes hanger, proper sanitary stuffs, and most importantly all were clean
i can make hot drinks with this heater
coffee, tea or me???
this is the washroom
with their all-in-one shampoo, conditioner and soap
the shower area
And since we have a "world card" worth MYR50, we had another free dinner at New Orleans café.
Apart from Raffles hotel, the Fullerton can be considered as Grand Ol’ Lady too. Built during the colonial days, it has an anglo-European architecture that captures my heart...
I have been longing to step my foot into the Fullerton, but many occasion, time doesn’t allow. This time i dun give myself an excuse. Come rain or shine, i must visit this heritage boutique hotel...And finally i'm here.
The gothic-like window frame
the main lobby
stairways from various direction
i like how it feels here
but too bad, i dun stay here
let the melodic rythm fills the air
the staircase again
and the decoration
stopping by a bakery shop, this miniature replica of Fullerton (made of biscuit) captures my attention
