Malaysia Boleh?

Ok at first thought I'd regret coming here with my Dad, but I guess it's not too bad after all.. for a tourist trap.

The Genting resort is an archetypical example of an integrated resort.. Imagine putting JEC's Snow City, Marina Square's United Archery, Wild Wild Wet, California's Knott's Berry Farm all in one place, and throwing in a casino and an indoor roller coaster for good measure. Not to mention a vertical wind tunnel in which one can skydive without bothering with details like parachutes. (And Ella from S.H.E. did it, kudos.) And the Xtreme show was awesome. Made up of many acts like motorbike stunts (the best, 4 bikes zipping inside a small sphere), acrobatics, dancers, clowns and the whole works. Oh yes that reminds me to catch Cirque du Soleil back in sg.

Too bad it is a little inaccessible. An airport or landing strip here would make it complete. Is that why it's not quite as crowded as sg's malls even on a friday night? We'll see how saturday nite turns out.

Btw I think this is a not a bad place to bring your girls, if she doesn't mind the long bus ride. Not that this advice would be too useful for most of you guys reading this. (Is there even anyone reading this? But I digress.) It's really not that sleazy at all, contrary to my expectations. Kawaiis everywhere. Even the pub is pretty wholesome, plays wholesome live music like lemon tree. Good for the whole family. I think those malaysians they did something right this time. Free wireless broadband internet almost everywhere too. Too bad I haven't got a laptop, so I gotta shell out a few bucks for the cybercafe.

K think i better head 2 bed now.. gonna try that vertical wind tunnel tmr.

when can we start buying tixs. better to be early. these eccentricities have a tendency of selling out faster than we think.

dude, that's like $250. twice the price of the next-level seats, at $130. how about getting those instead?

tickets are already available on SISTIC. BUY BUY BUY!!! which dates are good for you? weekdays work better: less crowded? and who else wants to go?

still yoozing i see. when i see the quidam poster i think happy-meal buying tai's tai's who cant speak their mother's tong. And a handful of overzealous geps (what!!!). anyways thanks to backwardness of singapour my ICQ is way more like SMS. too bad the girls here don't put up nice shows. then we will buy $300 tickets for sure.

ok ok i am a hypocrite. i did go to a similar show in NYC. my advice is, if there's a interactive segment you want to do something unexpected like rip off the performers' clothes. my experience is that the girls in the audience won't think you're weird (at least not at first).

It's no big deal. I used to read yours when you first dropped by, but you stopped writing and I got lazy. Now that I have RSS the blogosphere is at my feet hehe.
