It’s been many years since my parents and I headed to Genting Highlands during Chinese New Year. Many years back, my friends would tag along. This year round, it’s just my tenant.
Many, many years back @ Genting Highlands. Ping on the left. Me on the right
For 3 consecutive years, Him, Kiang, Wai Keong and I went to Awana Golf Club for lunch with my parents during Chinese New Year.
As usual, we dropped by Awana Golf Club for lunch @ Rajawali restaurant. Although my dad’s hair has grown grey and my mum’s health has deteriorated, Rajawali restaurant didn’t change one bit. We sat by the balcony overlooking the golf course. Time flies, the last time we came here was about 5 years ago.
After lunch, we headed straight to Genting Highlands. Many cars were parked by the side due to overheating. I was quite worried that mine would be one of the victims.
The place was packed with locals and foreigners alike. The weather is no longer as cold as it used to be. I guess development there has taken a toll on the weather.
My parents, tenant and I went on our own destination. I walked around First World Plaza. The place has turned into a huge indoor amusement park cum shopping centre!
They also had one small performance by a group of foreign samba dancers. The girls were wearing Gstrings to dance
O____o Malaysia can aah?
My first destination was obviously the rock climbing walls. The place was pretty deserted although many newbies were lining up to give their beginner wall ago.
Coincidentally, Ping was around Genting as well. I found out after texting him.
Ping: ..I’ll come join you later. My palms damn wet already. …
Me: OK. (So were mine!)
I waited around the climbing zone for him. 1 hour later…
Ping: Eh, I don’t think I can’t join you la. I have to go home already.
So my time was wasted waiting for Ping. I had to meet my parents around 630PM for dinner.
We dropped by one restaurant at Goh Tong Jaya for dinner. Nice dinner, excellent atmosphere. Perfect way to start the year of the Pig!
