Resort World Genting Highland Trip Report

Early morning waiting for our flight to go to Kuala Lumpur :D, I sleep around 3am, and its a struggle to wake up at 6am the next day.
First thing that we landed is to get food, and I had a wonderful lunch with my friends.
All the food are very delicious, all are meat. The signature dish is the barbeque pork meat.
The driver had a hard time on finding the correct way to reach the First World Hotel Lobby, a lot of on going renovation now. They are planning to build a new theme park, and are currently upgrading the place. So the roads are a bit messy.
The fun thing on a trip is to be ale to go with your friends who are nuts and crazy... LOL
The first world hotel lobby, waiting for our turn to check in to our room.
Some photos while we are waiting for our number to be called.
yes, almost there
Its time to party!!! After checked in to our room, we unload our stuff. And went to the first world shopping complex to see what's new there.
The good looking magician perform magic, and asked our of the audients to perform with him.
Very crowded, the show attracts a lot of audients. We then went to the dimsum restaurant nearby to have something to eat.
My friend told us that the correct way to eat the bun is to use the chopstick, clip, and put the bun on the spoon. Then bike a small whole and suck the soup inside the bun, then dip it with the soy sauce they prepared, and finally you eat it.
Didn't went to the casino, as I want to have more time in the mall instead of in the gamble room.
We decided to watch Captain America 3D tonight, each ticket cost RM20. Showtime will be 10.45pm
Looked outside the windows, the theme park had all been demolish. And a new one will be construct, I think this is a must to always attract new crowd to come here. Just like us human needs to keep on learning to improve our knowledge and skills.
Dinner for tonight, wait its dinner already, I didn't even notice the time. So dinner for tonight will be Bak Kut Teh, the herb pork.
After the dinner, its time to bowling, and this special glow bowling will starts at 7pm everyday.
3D and 2D movie, I prefer the 2D movie. After watched this, my eyes are tired, as I have to move it back and front to catch up with the character movement. And the glass are heavy.
Exploring the Genting Highland resort world :D
With all the food we ate, exercise is a must in order to keep a healthy body.
This time I'm luck enough to be able to ride the cable car, last time I'm here it was under maintenance.
A back and forth trip cost RM12
Expecting the cabin to be cozy yet its a bit warm inside.
How can I resist all the free food sample, I ate 90% of the food sample there, and the coconut sweet is the best.
The fog starts when we go back to the hotel, I barely seen the cable car coming towards us.
One of the staff which sells a lot of food looking magnet, and boy the food looks so real and delicious.
My friend wanted to drink some herb tea, and we came here. Its very bitter, but its good to get ride of our body heat.
An old Chinese saying, A good medicine always taste bitter. So here goes.....
The First World Hotel, which hold the record on having 6118 room, once hold the world largest hotel in 2006 in the Book of Record.
It will be great if people can have boat ride here
Its foodball night, so we are here together with the rest of the foodball fan cheering our team to win the game.
Also ordered two tower of beers while watching football.

At Genting, its a place where we forget about time, and no Sunshine. Its a great place for holiday, and chilling out with friends and family. Next trip hope that I can bring my parents and brother over.

How do you know it’s true?

Mark DeLong Photographer
Photography is this big art and industry that makes us believe stuff that when unseen, seems unbelievable. Right now, there are Nashville photographers somewhere in Africa, taking pictures of lions and giraffes; there are journalists with cameras witnessing revolutions in Asia; there are so many photographs taken right now and all of them are going to make us believe in everything they portray.

How do you know something you have never seen it is true in real life? You have to see a photograph of this thing. Remember the fake UFO pictures that made the whole world believe in them? We all remember them, but when a photograph shows the truth, it becomes necessary to the world.

A photograph is a witness of something existing, happening. This is why I find this art really cool, and breathtaking. Photographers all around the world, learn this art, they develop their skills and use their talent in order to show us that even the unseen can be sometimes full of truth.

You’ve never been to Egypt, but you know how the pyramids look like. You’ve never been to Brazil, but you know how the costumes of the Samba dancers look like at the Rio carnival. You know it all and you have a clear idea of how everything looks like because people with cameras are capturing the life around us and share it with the rest of the world. Of course, we are learning so much stuff in school without seeing images of everything and we know it’s true. But, somehow that’s what we like to do, we love looking at different pictures and see how it is. I remember in biology classes, even the pictures of worms were interesting for me. Photography gives a certain grade of authenticity to an event, a thing or a phenomenon.

So, how do you know what the moon looks like from a closer view? There are pictures of it. Photography even touched the rest of the universe. Isn’t this mind blowing? It definitely is.

I’ve just heard people so many times saying “I know it is true/ I know how it looks like because I’ve seen an image of it” and it makes perfect sense. You get to believe better what you see than just what you hear about. This is the whole idea of the photography. It is the art that makes us see, feel and believe.

So how do you know it’s true?  Simply, there is a photograph
