while waiting for our plane...

We boarded the MAS <insert joke here> Airlines to Kuala Lumpur.

We arrived at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at 5pm+.

We boarded a bus from KLIA to Nilai KTM Station, and took the KTM from Nilai to Seremban. We spent the night at Aunt Men Choo's house at Sri Carcosa (in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan) after a scrumptious dinner in a restaurant nearby.
We woke up very early in the morning to get ready to go Genting Highland. Aunt A*Lin dropped us at KL Sentral. Unluckily all the buses to Genting Highland are full (so much for waking up early) so we had to wait for the 2pm bus. So we went to MidValley Megamall -shopping heaven- via LRT and shopped for a while.

We finally boarded the 2pm bus to Genting Highland where we took another ride on the Genting Skyway (cable car) to the peak of Genting Highland where our hotel (First World Hotel) is located
enjoy the view and the fresh mountain breeze ^^

cheng bargained for the bird
hong & i queuing for the Spaceshot ride; it lifts you 182 feet up to the misty sky and shoots you down full speed after a few seconds, making you feel absolutely weightless, as if you were flying in the sky
Several adrenalin-pumping rides later, we had dinner at Restoran Hainan Kitchen. I'm not the one being sakai.. It's my mum -.- she wants me to take these embarrassing pics which made everyone stare...
the restaurant was packed with hungry people wanting to try the famous Chicken Rice Hainanese Style
Hainan Steamed Chicken Rice
Hainan Roasted Chicken Rice
sizzling lamb chop
Then we went back to our hotel, First World Hotel. It has a total of 6,118 rooms and was listed as the largest hotel in the world (by room) by the Guinness Book of World Records in 2006.

On the 24th - 27th, thanks to Aunt Wen Ying, we stayed at Palace of the Golden Horses (at Mines Resort). The owner of this 5-star hotel is obviously a horse fanatic. You can find horses everywhere in this hotel; from horse paintings to horse statues... All horse haters beware.
