Genting Day One: First World Hotel, Coffee Terrace, Chocolate Gallery, Strawberry Park, Lavender Farm and Bubbles & Bites

Trip sponsored by NuffnangSG & Resort World Genting

Remember my blog post about Genting HERE ?
Two days after I posted that blog post, Melissa from Nuffnang contacted me.
I was surprised with a sponsored trip to Genting! *Wohoo*
It is a 3D2N Trip and unfortunately, bf couldn't come with me as he was in Cambodia huhu..



Picture taken on 25 Aug , Saturday, at about 6.00 am at Golden Mile Complex
Early departure was quite fun actually. I was so excited that I didn't really sleep the night before hoho!
Here's the transportation sponsored by Genting Malaysia Berhad - We travelled by an SVIP 26-30 seaters coach.
One word - Comfortable! The seat can be converted to a semi-bed and, most importantly, the movies!!!
I love spending quality time while travelling!
The movies are quite updated! I managed to finish "From Prada to Nada" - It is a romantic movie.
Hiks why bf not with me. =(


Here we are at our first refreshment break point - Yong Peng


I only had an herbal egg. I don't really want to have heavy breakfast because I want to save my stomach for lunch at Genting!!


Some Malaysia Special Product for you? =D
I didn't buy anything from the trip actually. It is because, I brought a big (packed) luggage with me.
I don't think I can bring any more stuff. Huhuhu..


After spinning and spinning, here's what we saw!
Stunning view! GOOD MORNING, Genting!


While waiting for Zoe, Rachell, Yina to check in for us. =D
I love the lobby! Very vintagey and classic! Guess what? The hotel was packed and fully booked!


Here's our room key, meal card and theme park ticket!
The hotel - deluxe room is actually quite small but the bed is comfortable though.


The first destination we went to was to have our LUNCH!
My first proper meal of the day!


We settled down at Coffee Terrace located at Maxims Genting Hotel
It is about 10 minutes walk from The First World Hotel.


They offer International buffet!
You can find Western Food, Japanese Food, Local Food, Chinese Food, Indian Food and etc here.




Not to forget the dessert section! Yummy!


The ambiance of the restaurant is comfortable and it is very very spacious too!


Now, here's what we got on our table! Muahahaha!
That's a lot right!
Bad news is - The food are mostly GOOD! OMG! I gained 3KG from this trip! T-T
Lunch closed at 2.30pm and we arrived at 2pm! That's why we were so kiasu. LOL!


Dessert attack! Macaron, Rainbow cake, Cream Puff, Tart!
Oh! I love all of the chocolate and coffee flavored dessert!
Why so yummy?


Here is a picture with Cindy who kindly accompanied me! Thanks for coming ya babe!


After the heavy lunch, we decided to go to the strawberry park or strawberry farm.
After asking around, we were told that we can go there by cable car (Price RM 6 per pax)
However, it takes time and energy as we were also told that we need to walk for some distance.


So we decided to try and ask the taxi driver. To our surprise, the taxi was quite expensive.
RM 160 for 2 taxis for 8 of us. I think it's too pricey for such distance.
Then I walked and randomly approached an Indian guy who was sitting on a mini bus doing nothing
I think he was having his break lol.
Guess what? I successfully bargain for an amazing rate.
Two way to Chocolate gallery and Strawberry Park, 8 of us, including waiting time only RM80 !
Muahaha that's half price man!


Without further thinking, we hopped onto the bus like immediately! Haha we were too excited!
(Actually this is quite dangerous as that driver is a random stranger)
But, again, I thought it shouldn't be a problem and we have two big guys with us! Haha
Miyo's bf and Cookie's bf)
Here we are, sitting on the comfortable and spacious mini bus, taking photo happily lol



First stop! The chocolate gallery!


We get to taste and buy all sort of chocolate here!
The price is not really cheap though.



Here's a picture with the girls!
Alexa, Eva, Yours truly, Cindy, Cookie and Miyo!


Now, here's the place that we have been looking forward to!
The Strawberry Park and some say Strawberry Farm =P


The Strawberry Farm is surprisingly HUGE!
However, I didn't see a lot of strawberry though. I think it wasn't the season yet.


You can pick your own strawberries or just buy them right away!
The price was about RM15 per pack.


We found by this Genting Strawberry Farm House Special Restaurant
and decided to take a rest here.


Here is the Menu!
Strawberry Coffee? Strawberry Milk Tea? Strawberry Chocolate?
Sounds interesting isn't?


A picture with the girls..again!
They were sipping on their strawberry juice drink! =D


Look at these cute strawberry chairs! Why so cute?


I love strawberry farm!


Move on further, you will see a souvenir shop!
You can buy anything related to strawberry here! =D


Totally strawberry attack!



Here's a picture of me with the stawberry farm as the background!
Oh! Don't you love my gorgeous hair by Shunji Matsuo?
I love the colour VERY MUCH! =D


MY favorite part from the trip?
The Lavender Farm! of course! Omg! I just died and went to heaven!
Why such beautiful place exists and I DON'T KNOW?  =D


And of course I have to camwhore with it!
Omg! I love purple and can you imagine how happy I was when I saw these? =DDD


Another amazing place! The souvenir shop!
Ah! I bought a couple keychain here! The one and only thing I bought from this trip haha!



Welcome to my house..feel free to walk around..muahaha!


Move on, we saw something...
It looks like....a giant cabbage to us. Are those vegetable? Hm..


Please do not touch me because I am sexy LOL


Last stop was the Mushroom Farm!


I am a big mushroom fan! =D
Unfortunately, we didn't get the chance to walk and learn about all of the mushroom as, WE WERE LATE!
Haha we scared that the bus driver will kill us lol!


I only had a quick glance at the mushroom. Satisfied though.
As they are not colourful and not photo-friendly haha! Boring colour but taste nice and healthy!
I love mushroom!


After from the farm we decided to go back to the hotel, have a rest, some of them took shower..
and here we are at the Bubbles & Bites Restaurant for our dinner!


It is an interesting restaurant with blue -purple-ish colour (like my hair haha) as its theme.


They offer mainly western food and the food are surprisingly very affordable!


Here's what's on the wall. What's behind us too.


Sumptuous dinner again.
No wonder I gained weight! Hahaha no choice! We were sponsored with RM 1400 / pair.
It takes us forever to finish the credit.
We tried our best to order the most expensive food as we can already.
But, still, we failed! As the food in Genting are way too affordable! =D


Salads, Pizza, Chicken Wing, Wild Mushroom, Tiramisu..



Complimentary dish for us.


The staffs are all very very friendly and they always smile at us! 5 star for the service!


After from dinner, we went to walk around the shopping mall and
had a glass of pure fruit juice at the lobby before going back to the hotel and rest.


That's all about our day one trip!
I LOVE GENTING and stay tune for DAY 2 post!
