19th – 21st May, 2006
Went to Genting on the 19th till 21st May with Pappy, Destinee and Marsiti. It was Destinee's 3rd and Marsiti's 2nd trip. It's best to go on weekdays to avoid the long long queues. Not only have to queue for games and rides but for food too. We need not wait long for our turns and managed to play most of the games and sit on all the rides many many times (for the sake of Des).
aDestinee at the Lift Lobby of the First World Hotel. Riding on the Monorail.View of outside taken from inside of monorail (See the pink monorail on the bottom left?). This is the most worthwhile ride of all – a trip round the whole of Genting.Pappy & Destinee on the Gondola. Des was scared of the gondolier cos Des said Uncle was very 'yuk suin' (ugly). She didn't know dat the Uncle gondolier was a dummy (heehee).Des: "Ahhhh!!! Don't leave me alone, I might fall." Des: "Since nobody's aiding me, might as well get hold of the pole tight tight."
Mommy and Des on the Rio Float.
Des wanted to enter the Snow World so eagerly when we passed by the glass pane. We could look into the Snow House from outside the glass pane. She kept mentioning the whole day dat she wanted to go into the Snowman (cos she saw the Snowman and I guess she didn't know the difference between Snowman and Snow World) but Pappy didn't allow on the first and second day for fear dat she could not endure the cold. On the third day, Des wanted to go into the Snow House so much so dat when I woke her up early in the morning, she was still saying, with her eyes closed, "I want to go to Snowman" (heehee, wonder if she was dreaming the whole nite). "Okay", I said, "we are going to the Snow World soon". Immediately she opened her eyes wide (haiya, dat girl of mine). So, off we went to have our breakfast and to the Snow World.
We had to pay RM16 each for Pappy and me, RM14 for Des. Children under 3 are not allowed in. We were not allowed to bring anything esp. cameras, handphones or cigarettes into the Snow House. There were lockers (50 sen x 2) outside the entrance for us to keep our belongings. Des was shivering as she entered the house but refused to go out after persuading her. The gloves were far too big and there were no size-fitting shoes for her, she had to wear her own Hello Kitty sports shoes. Pappy felt cold too but I was perspiring. Why? I had to carry Des as she refused to walk in the snow and I had to hug her and get her near to one of the lamps to give her the 'warmth'. Her gloves were falling every now and then and I had to put them back for her. Where was Pappy? He was enjoying himself and was exploring the place on his own ... haiya ....
After the 'shivering' experience, I will purposely ask Des every now and then whether she wants to go into the Snow House again, she will answer with a loud "NO! Very cold cold, Yau Yau brrr....brrr....brrrr....". Hahaha, dat taught her a lesson for being persistent.
Inside the Snow House Another part in the Snow House. Dat's the Snowman Des saw from outside glass pane.
Eee? What is this doing here? Looks familiar? Oh yes, dat was the Snowman Des drew. She wondered why Snowman has no ears, hands and legs. After drawing the snowman, she added the ears, hands and legs to it. a
Notice dat we stayed indoor only? Yup, we prefer to play with the indoor games cos the outdoor games were too breathtaking and heart-attacking for me and Des. Des enjoyed herself very much and keep asking Pappy when we are going to "Wan Teng" (Genting) again.
Oh yes, we might be going up on the 10th June, 2006 again. Might be able to bump into u if u happen to go too.
By the way today's (24th May) Pappy's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAPPY!
