    This is my feedback about Snow Thieves, oh I mean Snow World.

    This is simply a place operated by a gang of thieves. Here is how it is done. Firstly, they show you 50 sign that says 'No mobile phones' before you enter (didn't know why by then by literately means 'If you want to get stolen enter with your mobile phone!). Then when you enter they have a snow slide inside that I honestly think they designed specifically to steal people. You get a slide from two guys (part of the gang), you go up some stairs, and go to the place where the slope for the slide begins. There are two guys (same gang) up there, they hold the tire that you sit inside, then after you side, they then hold your legs and raise them up and shake them! Why? To empty your pockets (My bulky Samsung Note 2 did). You then slide and the adrenaline rushes in, and the second you gone down the two guys down hurries you to stand up quickly! Why? To steal what was dropped from your pockets in less than a second. I searched the slide I used after a minute and the mobile was stolen! I called it and of course it got powered-off by the gang. Then when you tell them you lost your phone, they search (Hollywood actors) inside the snow slide, ask you for the mobile model, and then say go write a report! When I saw the report book it was the biggest book I have ever seen! I was writing my report in the page, and scanning the page I saw 'HTC Xperia Z, Iphone 5, Iphone 5s, Samsung' and every type of mobile out there stolen in the exact same way!

    Coming from the tropics, I'd just had to let my little girl try what a snowy winter is like. Of course if you're from the Nordic states or somewhere where snow causes havoc in your life, this is one place that you'd want to steer clear of.

    Decked in winter jacket and boots, my little girl and I took that brave step forward. Freezing, was the first thought on my mind. Anyway, no way could an institution replace nature in making snow. Those we found on the ground were more like ice shavings while those coming for the sky were more like suds!

    We were given 40 minutes to turn ourselves into iceman! There was really nothing much that we could do. But as long as my daughter was happy, so was I. Even at minus 5 degrees.

    Do note that you kid needs to be older than 3 years old and also, they have to be above 2 feet in height.

    Who says it doesn't snow in the tropics ?

    The only snow house 6,000 feet above sea level in Malaysia. It replicates a winter wonderland with actual snow and an igloo. Indulge in a snow fight, go sledging or simply enjoy the gentle touch of falling snowdrops on your face at Southeast Asia's biggest and best snow house. Look out for a panda.

    Entrance Fee: RM15 (adult), RM12 (kids). Warm jacket and hand gloves are provided.
