Kuantan-Genting-Ipoh-Cameron trip - 19 Feb 09

Wake up at around 7.45am, didnt know that the room is facing the east and is able to watch the sunrise. Hence, I decided to wake up earlier tomorrow to catch the sunrise.

Sun has risen View from the room

After changing our clothes, we headed to the 3rd level for the complimentary breakfast. The cafe is quite huge and is able to accomodate a lot of people. Joe went to select the food while I choose a table.

We bought tickets for the 4D Motion Master for the 1st screening at 9.30am. It's about a tortise narrating it's ancestor which survived for the million years. There are some parts which scared me and I was screaming but it's really not that scary, i think i'm the only one who scream. -_-"

We purchase the ticket for the outdoor amusement park ride RM$38. It includes all the rides in the outdoor amusement park except the flying coaster ride which has a discount rate of $10 instead of normal rate of $12.

I was quite disappointed with the Go Kart as there is a limit in the speed limit. I dun feel that the go kart is travelling at a fast speed even if i stepped the accelerator to it's maximum, somemore the go kart route is quite short.

Among all the rides, flying coaster is the most thrilling as it spin 360 degrees. Initially i was still screaming but soon i lost my voice in screaming, i even closed my eyes as i feel scared.

We went for our lunch as my stomach is protesting. We had KFC for lunch. The meal cost about the same as Singapore and in addition, it includes a bun and potato wedges.

We went for cable car ride as it's not good to take those thrilling rides after our lunch. We purchase a return trip ticket which cost RM10.
The cable car is currently the world's fastest and South East Asia's longest cable car system. This 3.4km Mono Cable Car System at Genting Highlands is the world's fastest mono cable car ride with a maximum speed of 6 metres per second. The system is able to transport passengers from the township of Gohtong Jaya to the hilltop in just 11 minutes. I had personally authenticate the time taken for one way ride is abt 15min. =p

We left the amusement park and went back to our room for a shower. After that, Joe took a nap and I was watching the TV. We headed out for dinner at around 7pm. We went to 阿一鲍鱼 for dinner. Joe decide to have a scrumptous dinner but I found the food so so only.

We went to watch Dreamz which showcase acrobatic troupe from China, dance troupe from Belarus & Ukraine, white lion and white tiger performance and Toris Togni Alessandro magic shows. As no picture taking is allowed, my camera is napping in my bag. The show lasted about 1.5hrs and ended at 10.30pm. We headed back to our room as we were exhausted after a day of fun.
