Went to airport at 12pm and at 1.55pm, we took off on time and reached KL earlier than sheduled. It rained heavily that day at KL.
Took Skybus(RM9 per person per way) to KL Sentral. Thought of catching the bus to Genting but the ticket counter was closed!!! OH DEAR! DIE! Use taxi will cost a bomb! There were 3 guys talking among themselves near the counter, then one guy approached us and told us that there is no more ticket to buy already. OMG! Then we found out that the guy that approached us was a local that assisting the other two from Medan, Indonesia. They wanted to go to Genting also and still figure out what is the best way to go since using taxi is expensive. So the local suggested that there were four of us, we share one taxi. He got a taxi for us and the fare was RM80 for the 4 of us.
What to do? We agreed. It’s faster and cheaper also than using the bus. We only need to pay RM20 each and we reached there earlier. If we used the bus, we might reach Genting when it’s dark.
The taxi driver sent us to the Skyway(cable car) because he didn’t want to drive up and it will also be very expensive. The ride is RM5 per person for one way for the Skyway(cable car). It’s really scary!!! Raining summore! If no rain then it’s would be great but it rained. Our gondola happened to drip water -.-‘
Left: Check-in counters at First World Hotel.
Right: The basin and you can see the toilet.
The doors are sliding doors with no locks. The room is small but I don’t care! It’s free what! The sheets were clean but the pillows were lousy… The extra pillow on top of the shelf in the cupboard given was quite dirty -.-” You don’t need air-con there hahaha.. Only a ceiling fan which I would rather not on it because it dried my nose.
Left: Hehehe… Nice ride. I didn’t play this though.
Right: Familiar landmark. What it’s called already? The Big Ben?
Left: After that, we went to get dinner. You can get dinner in the indoor theme park. There are eateries everywhere! From eastern to western food, even fast food such as KFC, McD, Burger King, Marrybrown etc.
Right: Starworld, the smaller casino. Went in there for free drinks 😛 Hahaha… I didn’t gamble, just see, see, look, look hahaha… AIKS… The guards didn’t stop me on the way in, this means I looked more than I’m 21 years old, no more underage, so sad… Old already 🙁 Hahaha…
Colourful lights everywhere, even fake fireworks hahaha…
Left: Arcade games.
Right: Try your luck and see what toy you got.
Left: Test your skill and see what you can win.
Right: Be A Star, go sing your heart out!
Left: The Olive, so posh -.-‘ Food isn’t cheap in there too.
Right: The main casino, you’ll be greeted by the clown statues at the entrance. The guard didn’t stop me… ARG… OLD! ;p
Left: The place where you’ll walk through when you go into the casino area. I applied for Worldcard but didn’t upgrade it because I didn’t play any of the casino game. Only applied it for fun, don’t know what’s for *lol*
Right: Snowworld, not worth it. Didn’t go in unless they allow camera.
Left: Overall view of the indoor theme park at night.

Right: HUGE VEGGIES AND FRUITS! Hahaha… Just decors of a juice stall.
Let’s see what’s for dinner?
We went to have Mmm Yum Yum Claypot Bak Kut Teh, RM36.80 for two. One person is RM20+, not worth it if you order for one person. The bak kut teh is just like chicken soup -.- If you feel generous, you can try their abalone bak kut teh.
After dinner and venturing around, went up to get my laptop and online at Starbucks. Had to work… What to do? Good thing we have Starbucks vouchers so we can afford to spend there every night *LOL*
Ordered Green Tea Latter(RM15.50) and Hazelnut Hot Chocolate(RM14.50). Green Tea Latte is nice though it tasted a bit odd at first. Hazelnut Hot Chocolate, I’m kinda regret ordering this, I don’t really like it, should just order the Signature Hot Chocolate. Oh well… Since with vouchers, might as well use this chance to order things that I’ve never ordered before.
Day 2 will come soon…
