2016 Trip to Genting: Pine Trees,Cocoa Boutique, Awana Genting Hotel, Snow World & more!

Hello guys. How you all doing? Mimi's here again. ʕ→ᴥ←ʔ

Last Friday, my family and I went on a trip to Genting Highlands for the third time. The last time we're here; its was on 2012. I can't believe that it's already been that long. Since it's technically a mid-sem break for my bro and I and it's been a while since any of us been anywhere beside KL, we thought, what the heck right? Let's go to Genting! Even though we been here twice before, why does it matter? Let's go on this trip anyway if that means we can have an escape from our usual busy and hectic daily life schedule, hehe...

So, we had set our goal on this Genting trip to go to the Snow World. Yeah, I know that's sounds childish and lame, but we never got a chance to go here on our previous trip (renovation issues). Iki tai na... Thus, we brought the ticket early on from the site to avoid missing out and get a reduced price in return. Isn't that cool? For those who are planning to go here but don't feel like paying more, take a look at the reservation page below. Believe me, the price is total legit and you don't have to pay anything accept to leave your like on their fanpage @ FB.

I also included the link in case you're interested *wink... wink* :D 

You can make your own reservation in here
But, before we go any details the trip @ Snow World Genting, let's talk about something else first. Hmm, the place where we're staying sounds like a good start, but... ah, there's so much things to tell I don't even know where to start. Oh, well..  I think I'll just do it like this. As they say, picture can hold a thousand words, so please - enjoy scrolling for more insight on our Genting trip this time around. Are you guys ready?

Let's begin!

Day 1: Friday, 15 April 2016

Selfie Time!
2 hours journey wouldn't feel complete
without any selfie taking involved.
Pine Trees Revisited
The first time we're here, the pine trees around here are still green and growing.
Now, deforestation and man-interference with the nature ruined everything.
This sucks man. We kinda look forward to see all of these pines again.
Hello, Genting Highlands for the 3rd time
We had arrived!!
My bro and I playing around after our arrival while my dad having a smoke somewhere.
I was talking to my mom about the breeze and scent of flower in the air.
Hehe, this feels totally different from Malacca, man.
Strawberry Strawberry Park (Half-way) Revisited
They charged this place RM8.00 per entry these days.
Since we had been here before we didn't think it worth it.
Better use that money for food or else. Still, the outside of the park have
 some nice view and since it's free - knocked yourself out for the pic. 
Cocoa Boutique
Are you a fan of homemade choco? Look no further then this place.
It got all kind of choco lover to cater your taste buds.
Since we're Malaysian, we got ourselves some
 local taste - Durian flavor and several others.
For the third time of coming here, we decided that we want some change of air. No more Selesa Hillhomes Apartment, but hello Resorts World Genting - Awana Hotel. To secure the room, my mom had booked this place a month beforehand so that once my bro arrived home for mid-sem break, we'll be ready.... 

Due to time restriction and my own ignorance, I had forgotten
to take picture of the resort. But, hey I still manage to capture some.
Here are the views...
Awana Hotel Resort Garden
I strongly feel like this is a Japanese Garden.
Feeling the Zen vibes, anyone?
Inside of the hotel room
Chocolate Haven!
Cause the taste its too sublime... (●♡∀♡)
RnR Genting Sempah
Having dinner here and restocking midnight snack food.
Oh, and this drink is called 3 Layer Ice Tea, guys.

Day 2: Saturday, 16 April 2016

Having breakfast first before heading to Snow World.
I ate some bread, sausages, red bean and 2 half-boiled eggs.
That pink-looking drink is a guava juice, not strawberry milk.
2nd Day Selfie
Oh, Yeah!
We're excited to go to Snow World, guys...
Here we are!
This is around Car Park First World Hotel Genting.
40 minutes before our reservation time.
This place was closed around Jun 2012 for renovation purposes.
Now that it's open to the public again, my revenge is served.
RM 19.00 per entry instead of that expensive undeserving price tag RM31.90.
Total $$$ saved: RM 44.10 !!!
Eagerly waiting for our turn...
And more waiting....
 Snow World Locker room and the winter gear
Our time slot is from 11.30-12.10 p.m
We're given 10 minutes to change into winter gear and taking pictures. 
Oh and yeah... personal mobile/camera are not allowed, guys...(-_-。)
Hello, Snow World!
We're here!
Pose 2
Pose 3
After Snow World photo shoot
Luncheon @ Marrybrown.

Finding Sakura in the middle of First World Hotel
After lunch, my mom and I was walking around
when we stumbled upon these Sakura trees. 
No, this isn't a real one. Just a fake ones they put
for Sakura Blossoms @ Genting Highland Events 
from 1 April - 3 May 2016
More views inside First World Hotel Genting

Selfie Time Around Awana Hotel Genting

After Snow World, we head back to our hotel to rest. Around 5 o'clock or so, I was getting a bit bored so I asked my bro to accompany me to walk around the hotel and explore the rest of the hotel.

Nothing to see. Just me and my silly faces.
Hanging out with mah homie.
These plants, those faces, and that smell.
Day 3: Sunday, 17 April 2016

After almost three days @ Genting, the time has come for us to go home. Below is the last picture we had taken before heading back at the Awana Hotel Garden.

Thanks for reading this entry. Have a nice day, everyone!

The Thing About Getting A Year Older Is... (24-Years-Old Edition)

Hello guys, how you all doing? Hope everything is going great in your life.

Me? I'm doing great. Thanks for asking. Oh, and guess what? I turned 24 today! Holy-Crap-Man-in-The-Distant-Planet-of-God-Knows-Where... I'm a year older now! Haha, this is so.... No words to describe it for now. I'm just.... What? 24? Holy... 

Anyway, I'm a little overwhelmed. Yes, I think that's what this is. Man, how I wished I could turned back time and be seventeen again. Hey, did I just say that out loud? That's not what I meant. I mean, seventeen (like really)? Why would I wanna turned back time? That's just me trying to be redundant, man. Why would I wanna waste my time reminiscing about the past when present and future are WAY much exciting to anticipate?

Anyway, moving on...

So, 24 years old. Nice going. I think I want to thank God first for the fact that I'm still Alive today. Thank U God. Thank YOU for the chances you had given me and the opportunity to see how my decision had take me so far and effected my life. I'm a bit of a weirdo, I admit that. I'm a socially awkward as well, I know that. There's so many plateau state in my life or silly little things that is way above my usual comprehend level - but I get through them all (along with people I still have around me), time and time again because that's the way life is designated; you either swim, or you sank. Gosh, I'm 24, yet I'm still searching and building for my own place in this world even though I'm well aware that life is a fragile little thing that can be ripped off and teared apart from me any moment from now. Ok, that's quite deep man... Come Back, Mimi. Come back... 

Are you back? 


Well, if you didn't know it by now.... this is my birthday post. I do it every now and then (whenever I feel like it). You can check how I spent my past birthday from example of these post; 2012 & 2013. Since there's no post for 2014 or 2015, I thought it probably be a good thing to bring it back. I mean, it's not like everyday you turned a year older, right? Lol.  And along with this post, also a list of people I like to thank and things that I wish to remember by before next year come around.

List of people I wanna thank:

1.) My Mom (I could never really understand you mom, but I know that you're the most kindest and honest person in the world!)
2.) My Dad ( Literally the only person who could withstand my anger and anxiety prob)
3.) My Bro (My confidante and Partner-in-Crime)
4.) Any person who are nice enough to remember me. Well, I won't be mentioning any names now because if you had called me once, twice and stayed in touch in the past six months - then know it in your heart that I'm thanking you.
5.) Great Youtubers (13 Youtubers, to be exact. Thanks for your awesome video and content to keep me occupied through my good/bad days.)
6.) My current Uni (thanks for allowing me to pursue my study and keeping my dreams alive.)

List of things I wanna thank:

1.) Tea and Bread
2.) Anime & Manga (My Soulmate)
3.) My Lappy (Forever & Always)
4.) My Little Garden (for keeping me occupied)

Yeah. As you can see there, I don't have a lot of people to thank to expect for those mentioned above. The thing about getting older I realize, is that you keep on losing people. No matter how much you wanted to include and make a room for them in your life, there just wasn't enough space. We all had different dreams and goals to achieve and because of that (no matter how close we're to one another) - we'll eventually went to our own separate ways. Not that I'm complaining coz that's the kind of thing I been doing as well. I met new people, become friends/make an acquaintance with them, before going on our separate ways. It's sucks that you can't keep everyone in your circle, but it even bitter when you had completely forgotten about them. It's like they never existed at all. 

Well, the point of this post wasn't to share zillion of my pictures, selfies, or whatnot just for the sake of celebrating a birthday. Nope. Those things gets old. The reason for me to be writing this post is to share about my feelings on the subject of getting a year older and two pennies of my thoughts about life and way of certain things works. Heh, I know that I'm not motivational guru, philosopher nor a poet - but I know better to know what you want, put it closely in your heart and mind, before start working towards it. Yeah, it might sounded simple, but if you're brave enough to say what you want to the world - no matter how hard and improbable that thing is; it will eventually find its way to work around you. I know that even by saying it, it sounds ridiculous - but either it is working or not; I still  wanted to work around that belief and make it work for me. I just hope that I would continue to get stronger as the time passed by and have these important people to continue supporting me.

So, with that finally being let off my chest, I shall bid my goodbye for now. I won't be going into details about how do I celebrate my birthday this year, but in case you're wondering - I really enjoyed celebrating it low key with people who had always been there for me from day one; ATASHIN'CHI. Thanks for the birthday presents guys and this birthday cake.

I guess it wasn't really a birthday unless you had a birthday cake. :)
