Finally is the last day of our 4 days 3 nights Genting Highlands trip. It was a nice and relaxing trip in Genting Highlands and love the cold weather. Scenery of Genting Highlands Theme Park still under construction, think will be ready end of 2018 or beginning 2019. Took Transtar Solitaire at Resort Hotel Basement 5 around 2 pm. Meal was served around 4 plus pm with 2 rounds of coffee and dessert (no photo of dessert - some curry puffs,etc) (need to take single deck bus and transfer to Transtar Solitaire at foot of Genting Highlands) The bus stop at a local product shop, we bought some local products here, was a 20 minute stop. Had a toilet break before heading straight to Singapore.

Our last night in Genting Highlands, we had steamboat dinner at Resort Seafood Steamboat. There's 10 of us but we ordered the steamboat set menu for 8 only cause it was really a lot of food but we did add additional one huge plate of cooked chilli crabs (3 crabs) even though there's crab for the steamboat. It was nice to eat in a huge group where we can ordered lots of food to share. After dinner, we proceed to the casino to play the jackpot. I only won M$100 hahaha.

After our shopping at Premium Outlet, we bought tickets for cable car back to our hotels at the top of Genting Highlands but we make a stop at Chin Swee Temple (the ticket costs M$8 with free stop at the temple). It was really very misty that day, all the photos look look blur or hazy. From the cable car station, there's escalator all the way to the temple, so no need to do any climbing. The temple hall was on the 7th floor, we took the elevator down. After prayers and photo taking, we took the escalators back to the cable car station and took the cable car back to the top of Genting Highlands.

Day 3, we had breakfast inside the International Room inside Monte Carlo Casino, Genting/Highlands Hotel. This is easily the largest of the casinos and you'll probably find your vice of choice in here somewhere — they even have a few video poker machines. Visitors with foreign passports are allowed to enter the "International Room" VIP zone if they agree to sign up to WorldCard. We need to pay for our breakfast food(the food is good) but the price was cheaper than those sold outside of the casino. Also can get free drinks, like Milo, chrysanthemum tea, chinese tea and coffee is free flow, otherwise, you need to pay. Of course there lots of temptation of gambling in the casino, need to control yourself not to be addicted to gambling. Normally I dont gamble in casino but on signing up for the Genting Member's card, they gave us free M$30 to play on the jackpot. So needless to say, I pump more money once I started to play hahaha but I prefer watching my sisters to play than play myself, Cause the jackpot was eating money very fast, I am glad I am able to set a small sum on how much I want to play on each day. Not addicted to gambling. After our breakfast, we made our way to Sky Avenue to take the cable car. Our original plan was to visit Chin Swee temple first, then to shop at Premium Outlet but on that day, the cable car was closed for servicing, we need to walk back to Resort Hotel to take the old cable car to Gohtong Jaya and then take a free shuttle bus to Premium Outlet, so our itinerary was changed. If we were to take the new cable car, we need not take any shuttle bus, the new cable car go direct to Chin swee Temple (1st stop) and Premium OUtlet (2nd stop), the fare was only M$8 for both statons (need keep the ticket if alight at first station and show the ticket again if proceed to second station). It was so misty and cold that day,we could hardly see the cars when we were crossing the road. Fantastic, had a great time shopping at the outlet, planned to visit Genting Highlands again. :)

There's nothing much to do in Genting Highlands except eating and shopping or go to the movies and of course there's the casino for those love to try their luck. For our dinner on day 2, the ten of us (with family members), decided to dine at Burger and Lobster. We queue almost for one hour cause of peak dinner time. To avoid the queue, try going earlier before peak lunch or peak dinner time. The burgers were really very tasty and good. For the lobsters, the grilled lobster is quite good. My brother in law tried the chilli lobster and he loved it. Next time, will try the steamed lobster. Did not post the rest of the lobsters cause most of us ordered the same lobster dish hahaha.
