Genting Trip + Sin Kie Seafood Restaurant + Crap Dinner

August 23, 2010

I have been looking forward for this particular Genting trip because it meant that it’s the first time we, since Kayden birth that we head out for a family outing. There’s of course a lot of things to consider because he’s still 7 months and he had never slept anywhere else before apart from our bed and his baby cot. So we were expecting the worse (but luckily everything turned out well).

We left KL about 130pm and head straight over to Gohtong Jaya for lunch. We went to this place called Sin Kie that is recommended by my parents, who were there last Sunday.

While we were busy eating lunch, Kayden is having his mini lunch too.

The restaurant menu, which is almost the same like all the rest of the restaurant along that stretch of road.

Fried Rice is pretty good with Chinese Lap Cheong, long beans and egg (apparent duck egg according to my brother in law).

The Lemon Chicken is very bad. There’s not much taste in the chicken and the lemon gravy is just tasteless.

The Fan Shu Miu is pretty decent.

The Paddy Frog with Mihun is pretty good. The soup is very refreshing and provided a distinctive sweetness from the wolfberries. The frog meat is pretty decent, although it’s not those very big in size.

The Wat Dan Hor (Cantonese Style Fried Kway Teow) is the dish that is recommended by my parents so it’s sort of like the must order dish. The gravy is pretty good and the half cooked egg provided excellent colours to the dish. It’s not easy to find a decent Wat Dan Hor around Genting area, so I think that it’s pretty well done.

The total bill came up to about RM104, which is quite a decent meal considering that we order the frog mihun.

After a decent meal, we then proceeded to head to the hotel to check in. Luckily we decided to stay over on a Sunday night coz checking in was a breeze as compare to Saturdays, which some said one had to wait for 3 hours minimum to check in.

Despite staying in a Deluxe room, the room is still pretty small and with the stroller, we don’t have any place to walk.

May with Kayden before taking our afternoon nap. Since Kayden didn’t slept much during the entire journey, he was sleepy about 5pm so we decided to rest a let him sleep for a while. It was not until 8pm that we head down to First World Plaza for dinner.

The dinner was one of the most disappointing dinner that I ever had at Genting. My mixed rice dishes is all cold and the only thing hot is the rice. It’s also not cheap either at RM16. Next time, I think I will stick to MarryBrown or KFC or McD or Burger King.

May ordered Bak Kut Teh for 2 person to share with her dad, and the price is a whopping RM50. Lesson learned again not to eat this kind of food at Genting.

After dinner, May realised that her skin allergic came back so we had to head over to the clinic to see a doctor because she’s had a little difficulty breathing as some of the rashes were around her neck. We then head back to the room to get Kayden to sleep before me heading to the casino with May’s dad and brother in law.

One thing I noticed this time around at Genting is there are a lot of pimps hanging around, so looks like Genting has become a bit like Vice City. It’s a bit disappointing because almost every nook or corner, there’s some pimp that will ask you if you want any girls.

That aside, I also found out that the there’s now Genting ATM in the casino as well, basically it’s an ATM machine that you can withdraw your winnings from your WorldCard and it’s quite a piece of interesting technology, and now we don’t need to queue up near the cashier to cash in.

I lost RM50 on slot machine and there’s where I spent my 2 hours in the casino before May BBMed me that her rashes is back although she took the jab earlier.

It was a great trip and it’s great to know that Kayden passed the “Trip Test” with flying colour because he didn’t cry or anything because the place is unfamiliar surroundings, instead he managed to sleep through the whole night.

So right now, we are planning a trip down to Port Dickson pretty soon so that he can do some swimming, which I bet he will love it a lot!
