Genting Highlands pictures

I am not sure if they meant it to be like that, you know, but on a recent trip to Genting Highlands with the kids, I stayed in First World....yeah, the world's most expensive hotel on a hill with ludicrous facilities, smallest beds, coldest showers, stingiest bunch of buffoons working behind the counters and in the offices! But it was convenient, though. The beds were so small, it's made for 12-year-olds. The television set in there was probably designed about 5 centuries ago and only a caveman would find it impressing. PLUS, there's no ASTRO, there's no air-conditioning in the room (not needing air-conditioning in Genting Highlands is NOT a valid excuse)....the price is a wee bit hiked up for no apparent reason, according to me. With my feathers a little ruffled, I scouted around for something I could make fun of around the hotel lobby. I found the sign above slightly funny. You mean, Genting Highlands sells rooms? I didn't know that. You mean someone could just buy a room and stay there as and when they want? I SERIOUSLY didn't know that! Was it a blunder? You tell me! Anyway, here are some pics that I wanna share with you from my Genting Highlands trip recently. A bit delayed but, hey, like they always say, better late than never!

And how exactly do they suppose guests can "sell" the rooms? Hmm... Curiouser and curiouser...

I call 1st world hotel a 'Prison hotel'...with a small TV. Sure...they can have claim to be the biggest hotel in the world with the highest number of rooms...but when you step into the tiny room...you'd realise it's no big deal...biggest hotel or not!

Better pay a bit more and get the Ria apartment. It's old...but it's wayyyyyyyyy more spacious. At least it feels like home...and not a prison cell!

kenny, me too me too! Got people sell rooms wan ah....phooi yoh! I think they referring to those reserved rooms reserved for Datuks and Datins and Tan Sri, Puan Sris and it's usually the size of a sizeable bungalow right on the top or something.

killer, how right the term is! PRISON kow-kow! All tourists should be warned about the size of their rooms, man. Warning: Deluxe Size means 'size of a toilet'.

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore.

There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me.

For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media.

Since we were more like partners in crime, I f…

Grilled Salmon With Unagi Sauce

I always disagree with people who say that they are lazy to cook, it's too hard, no time, too difficult, easier to eat out....etc. I can't agree because I have found multiple ways to cook simple, cheap meals without causing too much of a ruckus to my schedule. All it takes is a little bit of planning ahead and research. And a sense of humor when it turns out...to put it nicely...sucks.

Anyway, here's one simple one that ANYONE (kids included) can cook up. Seriously simple and easy.


I love salmon but my kids don't like the smell and texture. But that doesn't mean that I can't go out to the market and spend RM11 on ONE single piece of salmon fish and make MYSELF one, right? Kids can have the overnight pizza. :-)
This is fresh from the market....man oh man! I LOVE IT!!
Wash it properly, de-bone the thing if you want to but I just left everything the way it is and just covered the fish with some of the following:-

Yup, salt, pepper and McCormick's season-all powder…

Stargazer - Stretch Those Sides

I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun.



I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose.

This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-)

For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, remember th…
