this was supposed to be a relaxation trip for me but i didn’t feel relaxed at all. the crowd was insane and all 6,800 rooms in this hotel was taken up. :\

35 more pictures under the cut.


DAY 1

we arrived genting at 12.30pm after a 6-hour long bus journey. spent my time on the bus catching up on gossip girl, merlin and pushing daisies.

we had to get a queue number to check in and seriously, it was worse than queuing up in the polyclinic. when we arrived, they were serving 44. our queue number was 388. -_-

so we decided to slack at

bought a graphic print skirt which i fell in love with at first sight. it was on 50% discount too!

DAY 2
woke up at 8. went down for breakfast which sucked real bad. i have better breakfast at home.

the bread was stale, the sausages were overcooked, i don’t eat curry for breakfast and the eggs tasted like plastic. urgh.

took the cable down the mountain because we were heading to mid valley mega mall in KL for shopping.

a shot of mummy in the cable car. :]

it was kinda foggy at the top of the mountain so we couldn’t see how high up we were. :( i told my family that it would be awesome to do a flying fox all the way down. oh what fun! *rubs hands with glee*
