UTOPIA: Weekend Outing

Weekend Outing

The long weekend of KL-day & Thaipusam was well spent at a cooling place...
The weather is super crazy hot these days and going up the hill would be great! My usual short getaway would be somewhere nearby as long as it serves the better quality food....and some sight-seeing!
Well, the food quality might be subjective, but i find that the food up there is much better than those served in crappy eateries at malls here.
Here's one ginger chicken rice served in a big bowl. So much greens that i felt like eating grass! But the dish is so homely...
the restaurant is bright & spacious & i can eat in peace!
As for my dinner, i had roasted pork noodles...
the noodles were springy, the pork was tender with crispy skin. Roasted to perfection!
for those who has yet to figure out where i went, here is it!
Such an iconic building rite?
on another side of the resort, a mega construction is goin-on and expecting to be up by year 2016!
The old Genting theme park has been demolished to give way for a new "20th Century Fox World theme park"
Am excited to see the new theme park soon!
Well, i got so mch $$$ to spend for gambling sight-seeing over here....
yea, i wish to!!!
anyway, I was there for a concert and no...not Yours Truly performing here....haha!
It was superb although i'm not a fan of Wakin Chau (aka Emil Chau). But is the overall experience that counts...
The stage settings, live band, slides, audios, lightings, and the crowds creates a 'lively' mood to celebrate. 
It was indeed a great performance!

Looks like you enjoyed the food and the performance by Emil Chau. Very good way to spend the long weekend. I guess you went with your mother, right?

They used to close down the theme park whenever the fog gets too thick. I wonder how they persuaded 20th Century Fox to agree to build a theme park here..
The place where you had lunch, is the only place I dine when in Genting LOL! Been ages since I last went..

I never been to Genting for a long long time because most of the outdoor games not suitable for my kids or I am too old for those adrenalin rush games.

I am wondering how would the new theme park looks like.

I'd love lots of greens. Have not been to Genting for so so so lone. Would love to go again once the theme park is completed.

Hayley: they have a sneak preview of the new theme park (in video and miniature replica, i guess!) in one of the hall at Genting Highland, but the hall is opened at certain hours only. I thought of goin to see, but end up tak jadi...

Yee Ling: haha...i m old for such games too...it has been years since i last took some challenging rides!

Suituapui: the new theme park will be a major boost in the entertainment business at Genting, as it targeted international market/foreign visitors. Well, i foresee the entrance fee might be expensive too! (*perhaps somewhere Disneyland kinda range?)

Nice! I was just in Genting for an event a few months back, back then the theme park was closed but Sesame Street was on.

I might be going in March, I had free rooms in Feb and March for 2 days 3 nights but I haven't redeemed them yet.

Hmm...now you just reminded me, I shall go and check.

BTW, the food you ate could have been free if you bought the RM 500 NN Chip Package and you'll get a 1 night free room + dining vouchers for the RM 3,000 NN Chip Package.

That's if you're going up to gamble, the NN chips are non-negotiable e.g. can't change to cash, you must bet with them but Genting doesn't advertise this nowadays although it's still on so you have to go to the counter and ask for the package.
