Spectacular Fireworks!   Leave a comment

another wonderful trip to genting in malaysia to share with all. this was located in the state of pahang; the genting resort renowned for it’s casino and theme parks!

the trip was made on the day before malaysia national day on the 30th aug 2009. malaysia national day, or called hari merdeka (independence day) is on aug 31st.

this was the second consecutive year that the whole family had made the trip especially for the fireworks!!! we like the close proximity to where these fireworks were launched, literally the burning smell of these fireworks filled the hotel room. and for the best view, you have to book the world club room. we booked it at the peak season rate of rm600 per night for a suite. as with most festive peak seasons, room has to be booked early to avoid disappointment.

we like it too for the cool weather about 18 to 20 degree celsius up at this mountain top resort at 6000 feets above sea level. you will be treated to the spectacular view over the distanced city as night falls.

we’ll be back for sure!!!

get chilled with es teler   Leave a comment

famous indonesian dessert
went lunchies around jakarta; had all the spicy delightful indonesian dishes and was pleased to end the meal with another serving of “es teler”……never fail to deliver the chilling blow!

es teler is a popular fruit dessert in indonesia. avocado, young coconut, cincau, jackfruit and other fruits are served with coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, pandanus amaryllifolius leaf, sugar and a tiny amount of salt.

this is by far the most popular national drink in indonesia since 1982. available from fast food outlets to refined restaurants, it’s charging at a very affordable price from rp15,000 upwards per serving (about us$1.65) at fast food outlets in most shopping malls …..try it when you are in jakarta and get yourself chilled…..
