Fun at the Peak with SnowWorld, Resorts World Genting- Officially Launched!

Think of the scorching hot weather in Kuala Lumpur, sweating under the burning sun like nobody's business. Who wouldn't love to escape from this place for some cool air and pleasant weather? How about imagining yourself running into the world of snow, forgetting about the reality of the warm mother nature? Head over to the brand new SnowWorld for some icy adventure, feeling just as good as the scenes in Winter Sonata =D

#7 All set with winter jacket, boots and gloves provided. Drinking yummy iced berry soda and having finger food in negative 6 degrees Celcius environment has never been that fun before. The freshly fried fish nugget topped with tomato salsa almost became frozen when I eat it LOL.

#8 While walking up the flight of stairs to the outlandish castle- pose and snap!

#9 Heading to Warm House for some refreshments- various types of finger food and some hot drinks to warm up our body.
#12 Continue with exploring the SnowWorld. Relief facade along the sideway of the snow chamber that depicts the concept of a Winter Downtown experience.
Besides that , the World Heritage Concept was enhanced by the appearance of The English Tea Shop, French Bakery, and Italian Pizzeria, contributing experience of many cultures in one location.

#13 Stretch of streetscapes. It feels like exploring a city in a winter country to find a place for good afternoon tea session, along with the view of snow covered trees and stepping on floor with fluffy snow.
Can you see the small floats with different colours? Another point of worth visiting here is getting to experience the adventurous Play Slide or Cresta Run Slide. Be prepared to slide down from the top of hill with the cool and chill wind blowing, coupled with the speedy ride that will sure make your heart beating fast!
#14 View from the second storey, The Lookout Point. Take a view on the scenic downtown streetscape and breathtaking entire surrounding. Don't forget to snap photos with the nice backdrop view here :D
Other attractions include the L.E.D. Animation Scheme- a unique light scheme that gradually transform SnowWorld from dawn to dusk. Enjoy transformation of lightings, from bright and bold to soft and romantic portraying feelings deep inside our heart.
#17 Perhaps some hide and seek game session here? Hide along the cave structures or even igloo- more fun!
#19 Reigniting Christmas memories with snow covered and colourfully lighted pinetrees

AirAsia Cafe In-flight Meal

I have heard good comments about Pak Nasser's Nasi Lemak served on board in AA. So this time since I'm flying with them, I have to try it out.

From KUL to DPS

A pack of goodness for RM12

Chicken rendang is filled with spices that it should have, so fragrant and delicious! Sambal tastes sweet more than spicy, not a bad thing to me as I find it suits my tastebud well. The rice is aromatic and rich with santan. It has the right amount of wetness thanks to santan, at the same time fluffy. Every spoonful of rice is sending me to coconut rice heaven. It was the best nasi lemak in my books! How nice if the portion was bigger =P

Roast Chicken with Black Pepper Mushroom Sauce (RM12)
It was a decent and healthy choice of meal. Wash them all down with a cup of Chatime Mango Green Tea w/ Rainbow Jelly (RM8).
From DPS to KUL

PN's Nasi Lemak (RM14) again because we really love it so much. Unfortunately to our dissapointment, the taste was different. I thought they are using the same recipe right?

The rice was not as fragrant and moist as the one served in Malaysia, and it was extra salty. Sambal was too sweet to our liking. The rendang was decent, but less laden with spices. The size of the anchovies was larger hence contains harder bones. We didn't enjoy this.

Uncle Chin's Chicken Rice (RM14)
Again, the rice here is dry and lack of chicken stock. Chicken was just okay. The Malaysian hawker type chicken rice is way much better than this (and cheaper tsk tsk)
I am craving for the earlier nasi lemak and I want it so badly now. Just wondering is there any Pak Nasser's Nasi Lemak sold in KL? Anyone? =D
