Genting 2011

Last week was FUN! :D
Besides food, food and more food,
we went to Genting's famed theme parks.

Lotus's Nasi Briyani in PJ, Selangor.
Although the price's slightly steep (RM12)
but it's worth every cent! Yum!! :d


*pant* Tiring!

Rain! :(

SMK San Min's band performing popular tunes.

My bro, seconds before torturing me
by spinning the wheel like KRAY-ZAY!

Tiger's too naughty =.=

View from the Monorail.

We are above the clouds! (:

Spinner (my fav ride) in all its glory at night.

Reindeer ride.

The Gondola.
We sat two rounds since we're sleepy!

Make-A-Wish. :)

Too bad it rained heavily and we couldn't go on
the flume ride.
We also missed the splash pool. :(
rain=less people
so that's the main advantage I guess.
 The bumper car, indoor's roller coaster, 4D motion master
(this time it's Pirate Story)
 and many more also entertained us. :)

the ones my bro and I really look forward to
were either closed down or dismantled completely.
Examples are the Toboggan, the Dragon roller coaster
and the Mine Train roller coaster.
And since we do not fancy Solero Shot and the Corkscrew,
the only way of getting adrenaline pumping in one's veins
is by the Spinner,
 which I got on 3
The Pirate's Ship which's supposed to
go high up in the air
also didn't go up that high since the rain
made the brake less efficient.

That day,
we left the cool mountains with mixed feelings.
Genting's theme parks may be one of the best
 and well-loved in M'sia
but sadly, the quality of entertainment
provided is deteriorating,
and it's not because of the rain.
The monorail enabled us to view the
dilapidated buildings and neglected rides.
The toboggan was actually dismantled.
Paints were falling off.

Hopefully something will be done to maintain
that magical spark the Outdoor Theme Park once had.

Universal Studios Singapore

While waiting for Lydia to compose her new blog post
(yes I'm waiting XD)
I vaguely remembered the tons of pics
in my folder, waiting to be unearthed.
I found the file "Universal Studios"
and the rest is history. :D

The unofficial entrance to the USS.

The globe is very 3D-ish. Including the mist. :)

Shrek's Far Far Away Castle.

The 4D adventure further enhances the Shrek experience.
My eyes stayed shut almost half of the time cause' it's scary and very realistic!

The interior of the Castle includes minor details like these. 

In the food court at The Lost World.

Here comes Egypt! :D

A trip down the archaeological valley in Egypt. 

There's beetles, snakes and lots more. Sound effect included too. ;)

Love NY the most! <3

NY streets.

They even have the drill normally found in the Big Apple.

"Lights, Camera Action!" is the best highlight of USS! 
It's amazing effects demonstrates what directors of film
deals with to produce effects that brings viewers to another world altogether.   

All sorts of hats available.

Doll-like girls dancing to the "Hits of the 50's".

Mel's Drive-In's fries and milk shake. Yum! 

Back to Egypt for "The Revenge of The Mummy" roller coaster ride.
It's a thriller

Place to buy souvenirs, plush toys etc.

Last stop: Hollywood. 

We also went to see a concert of some sort
  comprising zombies and monsters. 
Didn't know Frankenstein can sing! Lol. :D

We missed some attractions
so we plan to go there again soon. 
Till then. :)
