Let's go!

So, when do you wanna go book?
You know who you are!

The Toughest Decision of ...2012...

Oh yeah, New Year!
One more year gone and one more year to come. Feels like I'm getting old.
Where to celebrate New Year this year then?
If you are in KL, here is a list of places to countdown 2011 in Kuala Lumpur!

Among the picks for countdown to the last remaining hours of 2011 from the last weekday issue of the Star:

1. Resort World Genting

Organised by Astro and Genting, there will be shows, firework displays and the finalists of Astro Star Quest and Miss Astro Chinese International Pageant 2011!

Entry to Genting theme park will be free from 10pm onwards to watch the fireworks!

2. Curve, Damansara

Don't miss Jaclyn Victor, Reshmonu and Altimet at the Mutiara Damansara Commercial Centre Party! There will be fireworks at midnight but be warned, the road in front of IKEA will be closed for the street party!

3. Seri Kembangan Garden Explore
There will be a concert here with Alexander, Johnson Lee, Eric Lim, John Wee, Vic Teo and Hazama... not sure who are they though...

A magic show will kick off at 8.20pm...

4. Encorp Strand Kota Damansara
If you are in Kota Damansara and the Curve is to jammed up, don't worry, Mizz Nina, Pop Shuvit, Reza Salleh, Najwa Mahiaddin, Dennis Lau and Shawn Lee will be at Centre Court, Red Carpet Avenue, Encorp Strand from 6pm to 2am!

The party, Mystical Eve 2012 will be hosted by Julie Woon and Megan Tan!

Lots of big names here means big jams as well...

5. Sunway Surf Beach
Every year, Sunway Lagoon will host a count down pay and the 2012 Countdown Concert Party at Sunway Lagoon will feature S.H.E. who apparently turned Korean??? Other Local acts include "Dragon Red, Da.Mon.Ster, Juanophobia and others".

At least there will be hot Korean acts.

If you are feeling a lil generous, for RM80++ watch the countdown from Sunway Hotel (The 5 star one) Choose from the lounge, the poolside or perhaps get a room there :)

6. Bukit Bintang to KLCC

Ah yes, well, have been working here for the longest time... but apparently I will be able to see fireworks from my office...

Says in the Sun that there will be Malaysia Truly Asia show, street concerts and a Wild Wild West party...

If you are up in Penang and you are feeling young at heart...and just fresh from the crowds of the Bersih 2.0 rally... why not drop by Gurney Drive to see some fireworks and rub shoulders with almost every Penangite there.

New Year at the Beach is nice too! Try the beach behind Crown Prince (can't remember what's it called).

As for me, time to spend my free movie tickets on a movie marathon!

Happy New Year 2012 to you!

Catching Lightning Recipe!

Oh yeah, on of my other favourite hobby is to catch lightning and now, I will just share a lil bit on how to get a shot like this!

It's not too difficult at all if you follow these steps for an entry range DSLR:

1. Prepare a tripod for stability or any other place to steady your camera.
2. Set your ISO to the lowest possible... mine was ISO 100.
3. Prepare enough space for many shots and adjust quality to compensate. I caught 3 flashes in about 200 shots without using a trigger.
3. For dark nights, set shutter speed to anywhere from 2-30 seconds but for those rainy afternoons, set aperture as small as possible or the f number as large as possible. Mine was at f/22
4. Set your camera to continous drive mode... mine could do bursts of 10 shots. For extra catches, get yourself a wireless trigger which guarantees you  a much better chance of success.
5. Find a thunder storm brewing and find a good shelter... high buildings are great but the above was taken from the first floor.
6. Start shooting until you get a few!

Have fun and don't get shocked!

Every chapter has a beginning and an end.

Dear 85 year old me, in case I forget (which I might),

Hugged bb good bye for a week and took five days off from work.

Four years of study now draws to a close as I end another chapter of my life. If you did not already know, On the 19th of October, we graduated from the sausage fest of Imperial College London class of 2011! The piece of paper says: Masters of Chemical Engineering with a year abroad (First Class Honours)! Just flew in Saturday alone to meet mum and dad who were already in Frankfurt on holiday. The weather in London was unpredictable as sh*t and was nothing short of ridiculous. Flying from sunny KLIA at midnight to the deserts of Doha, I arrived at Heathrow  T4 (notice that terminal 4 is reserved for middle east countries!). Last week's weather forecast 20 degrees celsius heat wave... This week, 3 degrees Arctic winds... And yes, I packed for the heat wave... Clod shoot!  

Anyways, I took the old faithful underground in which the retarded circle line was still under repairs on weekends... When the f are they gonna finish repairing that line?? Nonetheless, there were other ways to get around. 

The first stop I made was to visit my cousin Gary who is now serving time a first year under graduate at Imperial. Good luck couz. Have fun with Malaysian Nite! 

Next I walked to Berjaya Eden Park Hotel from Paddington. Honestly, not a very nice hotel for the price you pay, even for London. Parents arrived a lil later cause of flight delays from Germany. Dinner at Gold Mine Bayswater! Waited an hour just to get a seat...

My trip to London was not without tasks, lets see, wanted to buy a new jacket in Malaysia but procrastinated till the UK and procrastinated till I'm back in Malaysia. Moral of story, procrastination = money saving technique :) Buy Starbucks Tumbler for bb, checked! Buy Jane Norman top for bb, oops, din go shopping... Buy iPhone 4s, epic fail cause just released in UK and no more stock since the launch 3 days ago. 

There was also taking parents to Madame Toussads. As a proper Londoners ( My parents and myself studied in London at some point) we have not set foot into the wax museum before. Would recommend to go once and don't miss the 4 D theater. Taking pictures with Christina Aguilera was priceless tho!

Dinner, drinks and catching up! This trip certainly was a catching up time for my parent with all their UK friends who are now retirees. I caught up with Basil, my former manager at the Natural History Museum where I funded my Eurotrip! worked part time. Dinner with Cheok (who gave me a surprise!) and Yvonne. Too much drinks with Wai Kit and  Chien Sheng ( don't think ure safe from my blog!)

One day before graduation, got the graduation tickets and tickets to Mama Mia for my parents! To beat the queue, I had my graduation pictures taken! Apart from one or two Ang Mos, most of the people takin early photos were in fact malaysians! Talk about being Singaporeans being kiasu (only way they can more kiasu is that took even earlier or not at all!) But I was a decision well made cause the next day, the queues were in excess of two hours! Well done Malaysians!

Graduation day came quickly, went to eat breakfast at the SCR and got my graduation robes! Wohooo! One and only time I get want to wear it! We were ushered to the Royal Albert Hall next door. The crowd was massive, 2500 graduands, with average 3 guests each filled the Victorian Age hall to the brim!

Garbed in velvet, a testament to the purple dye invented here... Not very traditional, but a reflection of the modernization taking place. After announcing the names of the thousands of graduates, and some organ music, we were out within 3 hours! Weee! Throws invisible hats up in the air!

Yes, the piece of paper might be worth it's weight in gold ( and imperial's degrees are printed on very light paper actually wtf) the university experience for me was more about friends, some funny, some to look up to and some to be there when u need them! So why not start from the very beginning of uni life?

Aug 2007. Freshers camp! Joined the camp to meet Malaysians who will be attending imperial. From there we got to know loads of people and even our seniors. Went to exchange numbers and break the ice.

September 2007. Tears in her eyes, I could only wave goodbye. Bye bb, as we spent our last days at Sunway. I promised so many things even before college, hopefully I've kept them all now that we are finally back together.

Flew to London via Dubai with the one and only Xander! He was offered a place in Oxford to study Biochemistry @ Brasenose college! 6 hours transit went by so fast playing 4 rounds of DotA on our laptops! Thanks for showing me around Oxford! Must have been there like times now, most visited place in the UK! Good luck job hunting and keep up ur photography! Upon arriving in the UK for rye first time, we parted at Heathrow Airport and went our separate ways. It was drizzing... Welcome to London. 

Only problem was, I could only check in my halls the next day!! How?? Sleep on the streets of London for the first night?? Luckily there were two really nice seniors who let me stay a nite over at theirs. I met Jee Wayne and Zhern Yoong at the freshers camp and at their place in Gloucester Road, there was XL and Ohm. At this point, my memory is scaring me cause I can seem to remember so much (this skill shud have came during exams). We had dinner which cost ten pounds (RM 70 at that time) at Bugis Street -.- bye bye pocket...

Oh well... Morning came quickly and they were so kind to take me to the new Southside Halls. Then there were three, Tizzard,

Cant rmb!!

There I was room mates with Daniel Fullgrabe, from Material engineering  now doing aero! An Ang Mo from Hong Kong who is half British and Australian!  Sorry Dan if I snored too loud!! Can remember him waking me up a few times cause I snored. So it was then I started finding ways to sleep without any noise :( Ha still remember he was kinda plump when he came into imperial. We would visit Ethos at the gym and he was my coach teaching me the proper way to do weights! Now his biceps are the size of my thighs. My first London bus ride was with Dan as well! We took the 76 to Piccadilly Circus... One hour later, we were in the suburbs... We took the wrong direction! Epic fail but it was the last time! Have a great final year Dan! Don't change ur sleeping habits anymore during exams oe two days study, one day sleep X( 

Down the hallway was Ce Dong my classmate from Sunway College and Poh Shen whom I met in the freshers camp! They had a room that could park two SUVs and a toilet that I could breakdance and liondance  in ( at the same time) Round the kitchen was Arwin, an exchange student from Melbourne who would later pick me from Melbourne Airport in my Exchange year! Together we were the fantastic four... Playing DotA when we had nothing to do and often getting pawned intranetwork. Besides the cooking and grocery shopping with luggages, we went to the London orientation together in that frigging cold topless bus and Waterloo takin pics at the London Eye and Houses of Parliament. Hehe we spent the year playing ping pong and cards.

Then somewhere within the first two weeks of turning my expectations of the country side into the middle of the most populous city in the world, I got an unexpected call from a former college friend whom I had said farewell to.   Thanks Yvonne, without that call, I doubt that I would have travelled to some places, or tasted so many things during Uni. For all your dining enquiries, go to her! I guess this is farewell again. Have fun with WY! There were many more people I met from LSE, so a hot shout out to da cha bos, Helena, Chea Ming (same birthday!) Wyng and Agnes (who was the first girl who gave me the middle finger) plus Yvonne Chua from the USA not forgetting the guys whom I still need to have some drinks with, Clarence,(Same birthday!)

What was Uni without some work! Chemical Enginnering at Imperial started with a bunch of us in professor Luchkam's office on the second Wednesday of October 2007: Chioma, Damitha, David, Alex and Isabella who would be my first lab partner for the first few months! Yeah, oh man, you guys were great! Really miss the time when we celebrated my birthday in 2008, it was the union, the Queen Arms, and Tiger Tiger for drinks and clubbing till we were kicked out at 3am! (FYI I was back in lectures at 9am and was KO by 11am after Math) you guys were great! Shyle, 2nd year was classic comedy, the rows and rows of computers after 7pm was historical for PDC, you banker! Third year was spent at the University of Melbourne, Australia, and i am pretty sure that i penned my thoughts in this blog somewhere! There were many people in the department and too many great people to speak of, but this space here is dedicated to my final year design team who did their best and emerged the best! It was great working with Syuhada, Alex, Angus, Deen, Yuru, Shen, Jay, Niklas and Pong who were not only experts but a great bunch! Special thanks to Ke Lun whom accompanied me to the Netherlands for a competition. Finally, An applause to Nigel who slaved with me on the 5th floor of ACEX for 6 months measuring the size of molecules! 

Before Facebook there was email and SMS...that was how bb and me communicated across the oceans. The obvious problem was the time zone. we were 8 hours hours apart for half of the year and 7 hours during daylight savings so saying goodnight is saying good morning. There were a lot of mis communications and non communication at the time. There was MSN then Skype. Yet the simplest thing of just being there was the biggest challenge of all and seeing someone face to face is nothing technology can ever replace.   

Yet as I promised bb, I am now back and with an old chapter closed, a new life begins. Many more things to do, many more to learn. Opportunities, challenges, time put to use what you have learned, and see how far it will take you. It took sometime to understand what he meant, but the late founder of Apple, Steve Jobs once quoted, 

Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish.

If you manage to reach this part of the post, you are either too free or too old :)

Now, go live your life and come back when you miss your younger days,

Best Buy! Canon EF 50mm f1.8

Whee! Got a new lens from Canon! Introducing the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 at only RM245! It was part of Canon's sale and it seems that they are trying to clear out stock, before which was retailed at RM350...even Low Yat forum could not beat this price!

Thanks to Bb who sponsored me the lens for my graduation gift! Yay! Gonna be having loads of fun with this new baby!

Sorry Xander, the f1.4 costs 4 times more...

First impressions:

1. Good value
2. Light to carry
3. Slow focus
4. Need to stand very far from subject ~ 2-5m
5. Problems with the view finder which kills the meaning of SLR
6. Perfect with Live View though
Field test soon!

I lost my meatballs @ Delicious, Straits Quay

Here is a new place in town. The newly built Straits Quay (Mini) Mall opened in late 2010 after years of reclaiming the limited Penang island land.

New to the place,  I found myself in the company of Bb friends...

From left: Bb, CY, EC... Initials only... Anyway, according to many, delicious is the place to go for dessert, cakes and sweet stuff.
For example this lemonade and white chocolate cake! At first sight, there it was a nice place. Pros:

1. Good decor, modern furnishing, and a nice view of the sea. Note the tropical trees, bamboos, and birdcages!

2. Obviously air conditioned.

3. Straits Quay parking will be free for some time.

Sampled their signature fish and chips! Noting really special for this...So don't really recommend it to anyone...but just in case:

The shepherd pie looked appetizing and I'm sure it was delicious.
Hot chocolate and marshmellows with a lil cup of syrup for all you drinks.
Erm, their red velvet cupcake (Red velvet is an amazing must try) but I saw them scraping off all the cream... wonder why...
As for their meatball looks a lil like:
Only one problem if you can notice... where are my meatballs!!? Which brings me to the cons of the place... Only one which time will rectifiy (hopefully):

1. The place was severely understaffed, there were only two waiters for around 50 tables...

This means that the managers had to come out and do their work which could also mean that they may be neglecting what ever is going on in the kitchen.. or there might not be anyone in the kitchen, hence the missing meat balls.

So poor was the service we even had to wait 10 mins to get our meatballs cooked and serve :( Anyway, after some waiting and some screaming, finally got the meat balls in a separate bowl.. how retarded... Because of the rush, I thought the meatballs sucked balls, not simmered in sauce and just hurriedly dumped and sauced on... I'd pay more for Williams or Murni...

Yet, these are just teething problems and I am sure that they will get more people to work there soon, so at the moment, do them a favour and go someplace else until they are fully staffed.

And if you do have some extra cash to spare, why not buy a yatch (I happen to know someone who sells yatches if you want your own!).
In the meantime (2011), Straits Quay is still a new place, so come a lil later to enjoy its full facilities.

IT Fair 2011@ Midvalley Megamall and the Bull Run

I would be the last person who would be interested in the mega sale but something caught my eye that I could not resist! 

The IT fair @ Midvalley were offering 500GB Seagate Expansion Portable hard disks at RM99 per piece. At this time, (3rd Quarter of 2011) market price was around RM165. So I thought to myself why not?
There's a catch: the IT fair lasts from 2-4th September and there were only 100 units per day to be offered, 50 units at 11am (opening) and another 50 at 4pm.

Fine, here's the plan, reach at 10am , get some breakfast and wait for the opening...sounds bullet proof no? Next day...

 Ah shit! (Did I say shit?) Yes! Look at the crowd! All wanting to get their hands on the Hard Disk... This was at the opening minute! I could see hundreds of people running like mad cows, dogs and cats .....and mice... running as if the world was going to end! So what to do? Join in of course! Well, I took a slow jog but I'm sure I was in at least 50 videos, courtesy of the on looking sales people! Googled just to make sure... not up yet! phew...
 By the time we got to the Seagate shop, the crowd was massive! My dreams of RM99 500GB HDD were dashed, somewhat...
 Yes, there were so many people wanting to get their hands on it... counted a thousand people! Anyhow...I walked to the front, by the side of the line... where the sales staff began announcing that the promotion was for coupon holders only... meaning that you needed to get some coupons online... double dashed...I was at the counter but not in the line as everyone was paying close attention to the announcements.

Suddenly, another staff opened a line and I suddenly found myself in front of a thousand other people! Dumb luck! Although the line was for 1TB Seagate at RM200... Still a steal! (it rhymes!). It was a no brainer for me! As fast as it went it! I came out with these...
 Bb, couldn't resist but to buy a Hello Kitty netbook sleeve...
 So here is the loot. 2.5" of raw data storage for 40% below market price and an astounding 1TB that will last me well over 10 years (For Cheok Hao it will last only 1).

Only problem was it was a USB 2.0 which meant a maximum transfer speed of 420Mbit/s or around 8MB per second on 64bit. Good for storage, but still not that good for playing back HD movies. For those who don't speak geek, here is a comparison of USB 1, 2 and 3.

 USB 1.0
 USB 2.0 (420Mbits/s)
USB 3.0 (5Gbits/s)
Until next time!

(Embarassed) First Time on Penang Ferry!

Embarassingly, this is the first time I have taken the ferry to the other side of Penang. Usually its the mainland people who come to the island (excuses).

Anyway, one of the reasons why me and Bb went over to the mainland was to visit her nephews. Won't elaborate on them but here's a cute picture!

The Penang ferry operates between the town area and Butterworth. A journey  by car out of the island is free, hence a long queue. A car journey into the island will cost you RM7.70, where as, you can go on foot for free to get out of the island and for around RM3 to get in.

I would recommend visitors to Penang to just take a journey by foot on the ferry if you have an hour and a half to kill in the evening. Don't recommend going in the day time if it is too hot...
There will be a slight wait as the ferries arrive every 30 minutes. You enter the Jetty area and get on board this 3 storey boat that swallows up a few tonnes of cars.
At sea, the city lights look amazing as well as lights from the mainland shore. The journey takes about 15-20 minutes one way.
While most people prefer to drive and park in the ferries, they are kinda useless sitting there...
You know what would be a good business idea? Turn the ferries into a floating club or restaurant! Worse, a casino...
Anyway, it was a short ride but one that was kinda makes me feel closer to home!

I'm cleaning out my closet

The holidays was no holiday... Housework is never done. Some friends keep asking me what are you gonna do? When I reply housework, they laugh...Well, when you don't have a maid and have been moving between a few places, you will need to start cleaning your room(s).

Will my friends have transformer toys, trophies, animals or poster in their rooms... I have books...

"Some" of the books that were left in my old house...Note three more boxes on the floor. Read them all before some age and now I have to put them away.

United we stand, divided we fall... or, divided books are light, together, it is a pain for my back!!

Secret To LDR

Honestly, I don't know actually what is the secret..
...but, I just had a picture that I have been wanting to put up for so long...
 Bb is gonna kill me...
For the sake of clean teeth, we were competing who would be able to brush the longest... 

After about 5 mins, bb burst out in laughter... leaving me to brush alone...


Yes this is really random...

Mid Autumn Festival @ One Utama

It's the mid autumn festival and so we decided to go check out One Utama for the festive season...
First thing we noticed was  the decor there which wore a theme that looked like a cross breed of lantern festival and halloween.
Because, not only did the place feature some traditional lantern like stores, it also had this:
What I don't understand is why the bunnies with the big smiling teeth... anyone care to explain?
And why the rocket? Is it time to go to the full moon? Well, besides mooncakes and lanterns sold there, on display were a large array of goodies and hampers!
As for food, we went to try out the new food court on the top floor next to the suspension bridge.
A lil crowded, and really limited seats, eating there on a normal day would be much less hectic.
Either way, many choices of food there... check out the chicken rice and western food stores! You will rub shoulders and rub butts with the many patrons there, as designed by the architects.
Today, we ordered the Hainan Chicken rice set which comes with the following minus the drink:
This will easily set you back RM12 but once in a while... Bon apetite! and Happy Mid Autumn Festival!

Old folks home @ Genting Highlands and 10 Mistakes during Raya

One August day, Bb and I found ourselves with a pair of RM100 Holiday Cards, compliments of Genting Resorts World which is valid up to the end of August. The holiday cards themselves can be purchased at Genting at a discount and comes with face values of RM100 and RM300, which you can buy for around RM85 and RM255 respectively online. You can use it like cash in most restaurants and many more places in Genting.

We left Sunway at 10am and here is where our string of unfortunate events unfolded.

For the love of the environment and the dread of driving, we decided to use the buses to Genting.

Mistake No. 1 - Took KTM

I'm usually disinclined to show more feelings than necessary but here is what I feel about Kereta Api Tanah Melayu Berhad: Fuck them. FULL STOP.

Avoid the KTM Komuter at all costs during the balik kampung seasons  at all times because it will be filled to the brim with illegal immigrants, all 2 million of them... What about the ladies coach?? I was shoved in the coach with the rest of human tuna fish.

After the sweaty ride to KL Sentral, we made our way to the bus stop..

Mistake No. 2 - Wanting to take the Bus up Genting.

It seems that Genting Resorts did not provide backup buses during the Hari Raya/Merdeka holidays... What about the people who wanna go gamble?? Arrgghh! When we arrived there at 11am, we were told that the buses were full till 3pm!!

Mistake No.3 - Left my car next to the KTM station!

Crap! So in that case, it was time to get back to plan B, take the LRT back to Kelana Jaya and get my bro to drive back to Subang Jaya to get my car :(

By the time we got the car back, we were back at home just to start our journey at 1pm! Thats 3 frigging hours because we made the mistake of trusting public transport!

So, it was back to driving...
Mistake No. 4 - Heading towards kampungs during Raya.

Note the massive amount of cars (75% percent of them heading back to kampungs towards Kuantan).
It was utterly difficult to avoid tolls yet traffic towards Kuantan was at a crawl! When we reached Genting, traffic eased a little until we reached another stumbling block.

Mistake No. 5 - Making mistakes 1 to 4 to arrive at almost 3pm!

That means parking is a total nightmare.

Time to drive to Genting: 1 hour 30 mins.
Time to find parking: 30 mins.

Yes, the whole resort was a total parking lot with cars parked at every nook and cranny. We almost gave up and Bb and I were on the brink of arguement because we made mistake No. 6...

Mistake No. 6 - No food in the car.

Oh yes, after missing our bus and not having anything to eat 6 hours after breakfast, we were hungry, impatient and disgruntled and the endless labyrinth of P5 carpark was killing our patience.
We drove to a dead end and Bb frowned at me with a pissed voice, "So, what do we do now?!" At that point, I snapped and said, I'll drive and got out of the passenger seat (Bb was driving). What was I to do? So I got out and saw a hint of a parking lot just behind us. Was it a mirage caused by those pesky Kancils that make you think that you found a spot? It was not! I was almost in tears as I jumped for joy! Finally!

...and after some free appetizers at the Bakery, I was content! Two donuts: RM 9 @ the Bakery
By now, the inside of the resort was stuffy and so we decided to get some fresh air outside!

Mistake No. 7 - What fresh air?

Unlike an ordinary day, the whole hill was filled with cars and their exhaust gases. The surrounding temperature was not as cold and even with our outfits,
I feel we were over dressed as it was frigging warm up there! So keep your jackets for the night!
Okay, time to find some lunch.
The resort itself was like a maze, we had to look at signs and find our way to someplace I was searching for...
Past all the people...insanely a lot of them...
and the buildings... which were either too dull or too colourful...
we managed to reach the entrace of the Casino. We were looking for the New Orleans Barbecue, which was located INSIDE the casino. No cameras allowed from here and we only had our mobile phones with us. Keep your belongings with security.

Mistake No. 8 - Not bringing gas masks into the  Casino Old Folks Home.

The place was a smoke house! Any longer in there and I would have the texture of smoked bacon or salmon. The other thing I noticed was the average age of the people in the casino, way past retirement! What a good senior home Genting makes, free drinks, toilets, accomodation, and entertainment. Also sharpens the mind mathematically!
A group of grandmother of gamblers next to our table. Who knows, they might have Ferraris and a taste for young guys. Anyway, we were ushered to our table and ordered the Sirloin steak...
and I had the Fish and Chips!
For its location and the view of the highlands, I would say that the price is really affordable plus freeflow salad bar and drinks (Plain water and drinks from the casino), though the portions might be a lil small.
Despite the small portions, we were happy. Now with our tummies filled, it was about RM70 for the meal, and we still got a lil more to spend! So off we went to just get some shots... Time to get out of the casino old folks home.
Smile people!
Yeap, the arcade has many nice things to get your picture taken with!
Optimus Prime!
Genting Man!
Okay, next stop was the Snowworld, a giant freezer where the temperature drops to -7 degrees celcius. For those who are wondering, it is frigging cold!
No camera's allowed either, so keep them in your pockets! As for your stuff, they provide lockers at RM1. Here, they will also provide you with Shoes, Jackets, and Gloves. Only thing you shud worry about is your ears! Get a balaclava or ear muffs cause your ears WILL go numb!

Once you are done dressing up, you enter the freezer doors and into a snowy place! It has a wooden cabin, ice scluptures, huge chillers and an indoor slide with those plastic donuts! Along with some fake snow and children slides, you can chill out there for around 45 minutes (if you have the balls).

Hahaha, so I jumped ship and had enough of the ice after around 20 minutes. Time to get out.
At the exit, the will reward you with a tub of vanilla ice-cream each!
Weeee! We just spent RM20 each (More expensive for non MyKad holders).
Next up, it was to the arcade! Always wanted to go play there and get those gifts!

Mistake No. 8 - Playing at the Arcade During Holidays!

Yes, don't do it! Firstly, you will have to queue up to buy a touch card... something like a credit card which you used instead of tokens. WAIT...

So many people and so crowded! Fine, after paying RM15 (RM10 credit and RM5 deposit) for the eZ card, we went to play some games there. OMFG! One game, RM4! RM3!... Thats like 3 games max.
Boo.. still, that was not the worst part! Like noobs, we swiped the card on the scanner... Nothing happend.. Swiped again... nothing happened... Balance remaining RM4!!!! FUCK!!! We just got conned of our credit...

So off we went to the service counter where a fat technician will help you out... WAIT...So fine, he got the machine to start... but only ONE game! Fine, keep our cool, and went to reload another RM10.. WAIT....

Okay, at least we still managed to play some games along the way. In total we got around 83 tickets, nothing compared to the thousands the regulars bring in... So I took it to the counter and the attendent at the counter said I needed to go to the machine to count 83 tickets... I can understand counting a thousand... but 83?

Fine fine, go to the ticket counter machine... the people in front had bags of tickets!! This guy had over 2000 tickets! so... WAIT....

I was not alone... if you wanna count your tickets... WAIT!!!!

Bb went to claim the deposit for the eZ card which was the same counter (manned by one woman) for reloading (Where are the machines!!??). WAIT WAIT WAIT... that is what you can expect!
Anyway, we spent RM20 and almost 2 hours to get 83 points to change it for this! A plastic keychain! IMHO, those people with thousands of tickets must be frigging loaded!
 Anyway, me no likey! It was already way past sunset and we still had a little credit left in our pockets and batteries in our cameras. So out went for some air!

We decided to take away some sandwiches from the Bakery @ Genting. Was like a subway and will set you back RM17.50 per sandwich.
A bottle of Esprit raspberry soda, RM9.90..
and a chocolate mousse cake that looks more like a piece of art, RM4.80! for my bro back home...
One last mistake.

Mistake No. 10 - Bring more money to Genting!

KK out!
