  1. Wow!! Amazing food fare..Photos are so tempting.

  2. nice place to dine. I haven't go try the food there yet.

  3. I love the idea of having my reunion in Genting but my family is not willing to come along...And so, this CNY will see me celebrating in Ipoh.

  4. LOL everything looks so delicious. I love to try that Vietnamese style prawns. Haven't been to Genting for a while. Shall check this out for my next Genting trip.

  5. Everythings looks so yummy! I love the way the prawn served! Super creative. Have to visit Genting sometime again =D

  6. I haven't had the chance to try the food at Genting Palace there... must do so sometime... the food looks pretty good and from what you mention, I think it is surely appetizing

  7. Interesting, didn't know Genting have decent looking food. Always felt that they are mostly cooking for tourist so everything operates like a factory churning out food by the thousands for higher price than what we pay in KL.

    The roads though is still fun to drive on. Except now there's more speed bumps on the downhill which is a drag. :(

  8. everything look nyummy! Good choice to come there with bus. Never have courage to drive there T_T

  9. fun trip right?
    I especially like the cold weather there to relax while dining :D

  10. Oh wow the prawns dish look amazing - definitely worth the drive there. Great dishes dear!
