I issue warning first hor… The outdoor theme park is currently closed to make way for more exciting plans ahead. *whisper* The first Twentieth Century Fox World Theme Park will be located at Genting Highlands and it would most likely be ready in late 2016. So look out for it!
So now go Genting do what leh?
I, AhSoh 介绍 you 2 other activities that you can do at Resorts World Genting.
1. Behind the Scenes Tour
For an affordable rate of $28RM, take a little glimpse on what goes behind the scenes at Resorts World Genting. (Genting Rewards Members got discount leh… $25RM nia!)
First stop: Genting International Showroom
Take a trip backstage and discover what goes on behind the glitz and glamour. Marvel as audio and light technicians explain the chim control panels with many buttons…
Second stop: First World Hotel’s Laundry Room
Being the Largest hotel in the world with 7531 rooms also means that the amount of laundry First World Hotel handles is also very tok gong! To be exact, 38 tonnes of dirty laundry on a daily basis… 好孔璞哦! But, thank God! Most of the processes are handled by machinery. Such a blissful sight for a moms to see that even ironing can be taken care by machines too!
Third stop: See, Do & Eat Workshop
This one hor, 对 AhSoh is 小儿科 lah. But I think, kids would definitely enjoy this. A hands on workshop to doughnut and bento decorating. My creations look quite PRO right?!?
Fourth stop: Horizon 50
In conjunction of its 50th anniversary, this 16,000 sq ft exhibition retrace the footsteps of Sri Lim Goh Tong who defined all odds in transforming Genting Highlands from an unexplored hilltop into one of the world’s most successful integrated resorts. Includes an introduction to the world’s first Twentieth Century Fox World theme park which is still work in progress. （ ¯ ö¯ ）

First World Hotel at Resorts World Genting expands and gets a facelift. An additional extension of tower 2 annex makes First World Hotel the largest hotel in the world with 7,351 rooms.
Couple time for Kitson and myself as we check out the brand new wing of First World Hotel.
Lobby of First World Hotel Tower 2 Annex has a modern contemporary touch.
XYZ Deluxe Room
A splash of vibrancy in a functional space. Comfortable beds with clean sheets. The XYZ Deluxe Room comes with either two single beds or one queen size bed. Inclusive of flat screen TV, Mini-fridge and Safe. Frosted lime green walls divides toilet, sink and shower area.
With the current exchange rate of 1S$ to 3RM, this is a perfect opportunity for Singaporeans to head up to Genting for a short getaway. While waiting for the first Twentieth Century Fox World Theme Park to be ready in 2016, there are many other activities that you could still enjoy.

Check out what to do at Resorts World Genting in our next blog post…
The Cereal Ebi Burger is a combination of cereal coated whole shrimp patty on a fresh bed of lettuce accompanied with slightly spicy dressing, served in between toasted white sesame chive buns. As compared to the previous renditions, the new Cereal Ebi Burger has got a lot more texture and flavour. I finished the burger down to the very last crumb.
Perfect sidekick of the special Ebi Kase burger is the whole new Sweet Potato Fries. Pair this with a glass of refreshing coke. Yums! The Ebi Kase burger meal will be priced from $7.45.
Honeydew Mcflurry ($2.90)
Honeydew flavored ice cream with crunchy cereal bits.
Not crazy about this one… Still prefer Oreo Mcflurry.
Thank you #mcdsg and #omysg for this wonderful Ebi Kase Experience. 🙂
Now go on, try out the new Cereal Ebi Burger and let me know what you think of it.
Well… You didn’t misread.
I actually went kayaking in Singapore’s oldest reservoir; the Macritchie Reservoir.
And still survive to tell the tale…
(Jean asked on instagram if there was any crocodile. No crocodile lah…) 😉
I was equally surprised to know that we could actually kayak in our reservoirs!
Joined an Instagram group (@instasg) meet-up for #photopaddle organised by PUB Singapore.
Then hor I yaya-papaya… Opted for a single kayak, since I had the experience of kayaking during secondary school as a camp instructor. *counting on my fingers and toes* That was actually 19 years ago! Well… That’s a pretty good indication of my age, isn’t it? 😆
We were all issued with waterproof casing for our mobile phones so that we can take pictures of our kayaking experience. An essential tool for Instagram addicts like myself!
We were out kayaking for about 2 hours. Lapping the gentle waves and watching sunset on a kayak. The experience has been nothing but amazing.
