    Warm Food, Warm Stomach

    by Aidy_p Updated Jun 1, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Want to make a guess as to what kind of food is both healthy and unhealthy at the same time? Well, that's when you eat sweetcorn with loads of melted margarine and a little dash of salt.

    Welcome to Asian version of buttered sweetcorn. Sweetcorn helps to reduce the chance of heart and liver disease, while margarine increases chances of heart disease. Oxymoronic right? Well, it's always nice to keep the stomach warm so indulge in these little snack once in awhile should not cause too much harm.

    Yummy Sweetcorn!

    Healing Touch - Rest That Tired Body

    by Aidy_p Updated May 27, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the one and only massage place (Actually there's really only one outlet) that my wife and I would normally end up at when we are in Genting. The offer includes foot massages to full body massage, but we'd usually go for the former.

    A nice hot tub to soak your feet and then, a 45 minutes foot massage thatleaves your feet with that tingling feeling once the massage is completed. All in all, the session cost us about RM70 each. Priceless when it actually helps you to get that good night's rest.

    The Massage Is Truly Healing My Foot!

    View taken from the Ferris Wheel - Space Shot

    by y_lyn Updated Apr 3, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    See.. the space shot is so near the ferris wheel. Space Shot is a rapid vertical ascent and descent amusement ride. It lifts up to 12 people into the air, providing an exciting G-force on the way up and a feeling of weightlessness on the way down. It is definitely not for the faint-hearted. I could feel my heart dropping as the did the rapid descent even when I was on the ferris wheel. It travels at 67km/h. I dare not try this.

    For a private room with lunch/dinner and 2 hours of singing at a minimum of RM12 nett per pax, this deal is really hard to beat. There are about 6 main courses for your selection with different pricing and no hidden charge, titbits and drinks inclusive. The songs are also up to date, so what are you waiting for? ;)

  • Sungei Rejang Flume Ride

    by zwphang Written Jun 29, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is an intense ride and thrill seekers will like the ride.Riding this will get you really wet,so bring a change of clothes if possible.The ride time is about 10mins because of the boats are moving at a low speed.Each car can seat 4 and there are 24 boats altogether.Despite having 24 boats,the queue time is quite long as the track is long.

    Then, we took this ride...What do you call this ? Hanging chairs, turning very fast we thought we would be flown to the sky !
    We took this ride many times, we love the feeling of headiness in our head !
    We said if we were drunk, maybe it would feel like that !
    I don't know, I never got drunk ! (Shhhh......).
